https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept25Post.mp4 Isaac Newton was a smart guy. He invented calculus, and discovered gravity. He wrote the first book on physics. This book covered a lot of old school ideas. Later, when they discovered NEW ideas, they separated a lot of science into "Newtonian" and "non-Newtonian." Since a lot of stuff continues to be discovered, that doesn't quite fit into Newton's ideas. Euclid is another smart guy. He came up with a bunch of ideas about geometry. Way back in BC. Today, there is Euclidian geometry, and non-Euclidian geometry. This idea, of famous dudes inventing famous ideas, and then more famous dudes coming later to add things on to those ideas, is pretty much human nature. Once upon a time, there was a bunch of monkey people, some dirt and some animals. Then the monkey people became people. And the people started to invent stuff. Some people invent stuff because they are INSNAELY curious. But it's also a means to an end. They want to be RECOGNIZED as the first to discover something. It's nice to imagine that these guys like Euclid and Newton only cared about "pure science" for the sake of pure science. That's only partially true. They wanted to be WELL KNOWN. How do we know this? Because scientists are like any other human. They have RIVALS. Newton had plenty of RIVALS. Back in the day, there were plenty of arguments over who REALLY invented calculus first. If it was only PURE science, none of those guys would care who got credit. But they VERY MUCH cared. The world of science, even pure research, is INSANELY competitive. Which means science itself is a means to an end. A lot of scientific discoveries were made by businessmen. Edison is likely the most famous example. He and Tesla were VICIOUS competitors. Deep on our human structure is the idea of competition. Animals compete with each other for resources. Humans compete with each other for resources. Sometimes those "resources" are fame and everything that comes with it. Sometimes those resources are the ONE JOB that fifty dudes are trying to get. Sometimes those resources are the ONE LADY that every guy's got a boner for. The scientist-business that were the BEST at both are remembered. Some were much better scientists than they were businesses. For example, plenty of the most famous inventions associated with the Industrial Revolution were invented by smart guys who died broke. Life is a competition that never stops. There are no breaks, there are no time outs, and it's pretty much a free for all. But if you understand the deep instinctive rules of human nature, you will have a fighting chance. Get in the game, and play to win. http://mindpersuasion.com/seven-rules/
There are two kinds of fear. Real and imaginary. Once upon a time, we only had real fears. Tigers, other people, dangerous terrain, etc. And through the long slow grinding path of evolution, we humans developed a pretty good strategy for dealing with fear. Better safe than sorry. Meaning if something was even potentially dangerous, it made sense to run first and ask questions later. This was balanced by our never ending need for food. So on one side, we were being driven forward by our instinctive need for food. On the other side, we were being driven back by our instinctive fears. Two things are very different today than they were before. One, getting most of our needs met is not so difficult. Food is everywhere. It's rarely, if ever, dangerous to get something to eat. Second, most fears we experience are social fears. Not real fear. Unfortunately, our social fears don't have a natural counterbalance. So the same strategy doesn't work so much. Kind of like our hunger instinct. Way back in the day, it made sense to ALWAYS be hungry. And to ALWAYS eat as much as we can, whenever we can. Because those opportunities to gorge ourselves were few and far between. Today, you combine our never ending hunger with the ease of food access, and you get a planet of overweight people. It's kind of the opposite of social fears. Losing weight is easy, in theory. You just recognize your hunger, but don't obey it. Obey your rational, conscious mind instead. Eat a couple thousand calories a day, and call it good. Obviously, this is WAY easier said than done. The same goes with social fears. Logically, rationally, there is NO REASON to be afraid of talking to strangers. Or speaking in public. Or trying new things. But just as it's hard to NOT EAT when you're sitting in front of an all-you-can-eat-buffet and you're starving (and all your friends are eating), it's just as hard to ACT when your brain is screaming at you not to. Which is why those that CAN do things like speak in public will tend to make a lot more money than those who can't. It's the ONE THING that doesn't require intelligence, or upbringing, or a STEM degree (or any degree) or any specialized knowledge. Just the desire and the persistence to practice. And if you add some hypnotic language patterns into the mix, you'll be in a very elite group of people. Capable of doing things few people even know exist. It's not easy to start, but there are plenty of ways to ease into it. All can be done safely, on your own, so nobody knows but you. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/public-speaking-hypnosis/
