  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug08APost.mp4 There's a kind of popular self help saying that, "the wake doesn't drive the boat." Which kind of means that what happened before doesn't necessarily impact what is going to happen in the future. And like many easy to remember and repeat "truisms" this one is too vague to be of any use. If you were actually driving a boat, you wouldn't even care about the wake. You point the ship or boat where you want to go, and steer accordingly. But humans are not boats. Human memory is very important. And our entire personality is made up of what happened to us in the past. The stuff we remember. If you had your heart shattered by a redhead in junior high school, that WILL impact your future. That traumatic event will create a "cause-effect" link in your brain between emotional trauma and red heads. For example, you might end up "Chasing Amy" for the rest of your life. This comes from a movie of the same name. That theory being that EVERYBODY has a first "lost love." And that we spend the rest of our lives trying to FIND the one who got away. So yeah, our "wake" DOES have a HUGE impact on our future. Or at least according to our automatic programming. Lucky for us, we can OVERRIDE our automatic programming. Few people will ever tell you this. Because few people will benefit from you changing how you reference your past, so you can have a much, much better future. Many people would LOVE for you to stay stuck. It's much better from a "misery loves company" frame of mind. But the LESS misery you feel, with respect to life and your future, the BETTER company you'll tend to find. So, how specifically can you "change your past"? Well you don't actually go back in time. But you can reference WHAT you use in your past. The meaning you give to those events. Think of it this way. Every second our brains are getting hit with tons of data. Our filters have to filter out the important stuff from the junk. And since that is raw data, we have to give some kind meaning to that data. This is the mechanism that CREATES our past. Stuff comes through our filters. We give it meaning, good or bad. And we REMEMBER this "augmented" data stream. So this memory stream, this "wake" that makes up our past is how the "then" we DEFINED that data. Which means we can RE-DEFINE it to mean whatever we want. So yes, the wake DOES have a huge impact on the boat. AND yes, you can CHANGE your wake. You can change how you reference your past. Which means you can change your future. Or create a much better future than what you may think is possible. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept23Post.mp4 One of the greatest feelings as a human is one that few people feel today. Ideas like happiness are great for writing newspaper articles. Plenty of academics like to do research on things like happiness. It's something everybody wants, nobody knows how to define, and everybody is clueless on how to get it. So this means there's a lot of interest in the subject. Lots of interest means a lot of people can write a lot of articles about it. But the problems come with HOW they do their research. The first mistake is to ASK people. A common rule in dating, for men, is not to pay attention what women say, but rather what they do. This is not only excellent advice, but it applies to EVERYBODY. If you are a marketer, and you ask people what they want or like, you're wasting your money. Marketers and advertisers have known for DECADES that watching what people do is MUCH MORE useful than listening to what they say. One reason for this is that VERY FEW people can admit the truth to themselves, let alone to a goof with a clipboard. The second mistake these happiness researchers make is trying to come up with some kind of happiness INDEX. Income, health, friends, sex, etc. These are all external things. Two different people with the SAME EXACT lifestyle will have two different levels of happiness. They could even look alike and live next door to one another. Maybe one guy, while he was in high school, had a HORRIBLE childhood. All his teachers told him he'd be lucky to get a job digging ditches. The other guy may have been told since he was a toddler what a SUPER GENIUS he was. One guy expected a horrible life and ended up with a pretty good one. This guy is HAPPY. His next door neighbor expected a wonderful life but ended up with "only" a pretty good one. This guy is MISERABLE. But you'd never know by looking ONLY at the external things. Not only is happiness a completely INTERNAL state, but it's a SIDE EFFECT. The side effect of looking back into your past. Seeing where you are today. And then extrapolating into an even better future. That STATE creates a real, genuine, feeling of happiness. But here's the thing. The content of the past, present and future are IRRELEVENT. If you are better than you were, and you KNOW you will be better than you are, THAT is what creates the most wonderful human feeling. Continuous forward movement. Continuous improvement. Consistent happiness. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/seven-rules/
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July15Post.mp4 Being able to predict the future has always been a huge wish. Stories like Mark Twain's, "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" had the idea of using future prediction skills very powerfully. A guy from then modern times went back to ancient England. He was just about to be burned at the stake when he suddenly remembered what date it was. Luckily, he happened to know when all previous solar eclipses had happened. And since he knew it was ABOUT to happen, he pretended to have super powers of blocking out the sun. Which, of course, made them stop wanting to burn him at the stake. The idea of predicting the future is connected very closely with making money. In one of the "Back to the Future" movies one of the characters made a ton of money by betting on sports. Even in the highly intellectual time travel movie, "Primer," the very FIRST thing the two guys did, once they realized they COULD time travel, was work the stock market. But as much as we would all LOVE for this to happen, it's not likely. For one, basic physics, specifically general and special relativity says it's impossible. But even predictions, rather than time travel, are impossible. They demonstrated this with simple weather models. This is the basis for Chaos Theory. The idea that even though we live in a universe with predictable laws that don't ever change, we can't use those same laws to predict very much into the future. General trends, yes, beyond that, not much. Luckily, when it comes to human behavior, we don't NEED to predict things. It turns out that LEADING people is very easy. At our core, we have about 4 or 5 very BASIC, instinct-based desires. Food, companionship, safety, self expression. But HOW these are expressed consciously and in complex social situations makes it IMPOSSIBLE to predict. Even something as simple as HUNGER, our fundamental and most basic desire, is IMPOSSIBLE to predict. Even from inside our own brains. But LEADING people is very easy. All you need to do is ask the right questions in the right order. The right questions will BUILD up their desires. And once their desires are built up enough, you can POINT THEM, with their built up desires, to ANYTHING you want. And they'll do it. The best part is they won't even know it was YOUR idea. Which gives you an incredible amount of power. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/instinct-behavior/

  16. One very common question you hear during interviews is for a long term plan. Where do you see yourself in five years, that kind of thing. On one hand, this is a pretty standard question. And it's pretty obvious why. Most employers recognize that having long term plans is a generally positive sign. If they had two identical candidates, same resumes, work experience, etc., and the ONLY difference was one guy had a long term career plan, while the other guy said he was only living day to day, the choice would be clear. On the other hand, it's kind of a difficult to answer this question PERFECTLY honestly. Most people don't get a job at ANY company and hope to work there for five years. And the guys asking the questions know that. If you said you never wanted to work for anybody but them, ever, they would think you a bit goofy. So it's both a surface level question AND a deeper question. Surface level just to check to see if you HAVE long term plans. But it's a deeper question in that they are also concerned with HOW you answer it. But it leads to a deeper idea. The idea of having a long term plan, when it is IMPOSSIBLE to predict the future long term. The more you learn, the more you CAN learn. But the more you learn, the more DIRECTIONS you can learn in. It's one thing to start a four year degree with an idea of the kind of degree you want. But once you get the degree, there's NO TELLING what you'll be doing in five or ten years. If you started a small food stall, you would have to be fairly sensitive to the market. Which means you would have to sell whatever people bought. Which means the more effective of a marketer and entrepreneur you were, the less likely you'd predict the future. Plenty of huge companies got their start doing things COMPLETELY different than what they are doing now. Amazon, for example, started out selling books. Now they make most of their money selling cloud computing. This is NOT something you can predict. But at the same time, if you ONLY live day to day, you're going to get blind sided. Plenty of people refuse to see the big picture, and get clobbered when the market changes. But those with long view can see it coming. They don't know EXACTLY what is coming, but they know something is. Which means they are ready when it starts to materialize. The paradox is having a long view AND being open to the vague and uncertain future. If you can do this, you'll be way ahead of everybody. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/long-game/
  17. Humans don't like risk. Whenever an action will yield questionable results, it makes us stop and think. Whenever an action will yield potentially BAD results, it almost guarantees we won't take action. It doesn't help that our conscious brains can only perceive a tiny sliver of what's really going on. This tends to make things seem WAY more risky than they are. Since part of our reptilian brains are always sorting for danger. Which makes it see potential fears everywhere. Even in vagueness. This comes across in weird ways. When we are contemplating ANY action, and the outcome is vague, even that will give us pause. If we do A, we'll get B, and then maybe C, but beyond that, it's just a vague cloudy future. And our reptilian looks into that cloudy future and even though there's NOTHIG there, it imagines fears. To make matters worse, our cognitive dissonance won't even allow us to see the potential fear out in the vague future. So we focus on the primary or secondary outcomes. And we use THOSE as an excuse for NOT taking action. It's kind of like walking slowly through an unfamiliar dark room. You have to walk slowly and not lift your feet up very much. Otherwise you might trip. Even though you're pretty sure there's nothing there, it still feels instinctively safe to go slower than you want to. So most of the time, unless we can see a GUARANTEED positive result, we usually won't take action. Worse, that guaranteed result usually has to be the primary or secondary result we can predict. But just like you can turn the light on in a dark room, you can turn the light on in your mind. The better you can imagine things, the further out you'll see. Meaning instead of seeing A causing B (and only and maybe what B will cause, you'll see a lot more. You'll immediately see four or five things that A might cause. And then another four or five things each one of those will cause. That means within the primary and secondary outcomes, you've got about 20 different things that COULD happen. So instead of comparing A and B to "vague danger," you're comparing about twenty potentially GOOD THINGS to "vague danger." Because this happens naturally, it will come across as feeling confident and spontaneous, instead of feeling timid and fearful. How do you develop this skill? By exercising your brain in ways to increase your imagination power. So you can see BEYOND the obvious, and out into the potential. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/hallucinating-mind/
  18. Humans are hard wired to "rise to the occasion." But only when we absolutely have to. In a way, we are very paradoxical creatures. We are best when we're pushed up against the wall. We dig deep, we think the most creatively, we act the most resourcefully. This is why "necessity is the mother of invention." The idea that you can just sit around and think up genius ideas really isn't possible. At least not for many. If you did do that, you would have to consciously PUSH yourself. This is the real difference between geniuses and non-geniuses. We ALL have the capacity to think genius level thoughts. But most of us never NEED to. Unless our lives never depend on it. One way to look at the human race is as a scared, lazy people. We wait until they VERY LAST minute to solve problems. But when we do, we surprise ourselves. But the REASON we do is so we can be lazy and scared again. Which brings us to the paradox. We spend our lives finding shortcuts, figuring out ways to get more with less. To stay as safe as possible. This is when our creativity is at the SMALLEST. Only when we feel like we are on the brink of death to we suddenly step up and take care of business. When our laziness and safety is threatened, do we become super genius creators. And as soon as they danger passes, we slink back down into our comfort zones. The greatest scientists and geniuses had a peculiar trait. They didn't wait around for EXTERNAL INCENTIVES to inspire their genius. They cultivated INNER INCENTIVES. They built them up so strong they acted like external incentives. Anybody can respond to external incentives. That's kind of how we're wired. Anybody can dig deep when you're facing death. Few people can dig deep when you're fat and happy. But if you can find your inner creator, your inner genius, your inner explorer, and be obedient to that one, you will surprise even yourself. Most people wait until they have no choice. But if you wait too long, it may be too late. Catastrophe has a strange tendency to show up when it's least expected. Like a thief in the night. You might want to prepare yourself, while others are busy with Netflix and Facebook. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/beta-male/
  19. They say experience is what you get when you don't get what you want. Once the founder of Sony was asked how a company could double their success rate. He replied simply, "Double your failure rate." Meaning that any time you try something, even if it doesn't work, you get more information. Information that you can feed back into the "system" (either a huge company or your own mind-body system). And the more "data" you have, the more effectively you can get your needs met. Of course, nobody likes "failure." Everybody would LOVE to be able to try something and get a perfect result every single time. But as much as we all crave that unicorn-experience, it would be pretty boring. If you KNEW you would get a perfect result every time, those results wouldn't be so satisfying. When was the last time you made a sandwich and danced around like a champion when you pulled it off? Things where we KNOW we will succeed are pretty boring BECAUSE we know we'll succeed. It's the NOT KNOWING that makes life exciting. Does that mean we have to take risks every day? Not if you don't want to. But if you are ever going to get MORE than you have now, it's pretty hard to do so WITHOUT taking any risks. They don't have to be huge. Just small steps where you're not ENTIRELY sure how things will work out. If you keep doing the same things, you'll get the same result. If you want to get something different, you've got a couple of options. One is to simply COPY what somebody else is doing. Then you'll get the SAME result they're getting. IF you can effectively copy EVERYTHING. OR, you can try to do something different, and see what happens. Whatever you try, so long as you're willing to try something NEW (either copied from somebody else or from personal experimentation), you'll ALWAYS learn more. And if you are always willing to learn more, you'll always be able to get more. Find Out How: End Self Sabotage
  20. Imagine if you lived on a planet where nobody knew anything about exercise. Maybe they'd been in a post industrial, post information society for a few thousand years. And for some reason, all the records of exercise and the affect of physical movement on the body had vanished from the historical records. Imagine further they thought that being tall was like being strong. You were either tall or short. You were either strong or not. You could either run a long ways without getting winded or you couldn't. And then you came along. And calmly explained that if you did pushups every morning, you could increase your strength. If you went jogging every morning, you could increase your endurance. And if you did enough of this strange "exercise" you'd have a pretty impressive body. You would be hailed as a genius. A leader. Somebody WAY ahead of their time. Sadly, this is the world we DO live in. Only it's not exercise that's been kept form us, it's learning. Most of us associate "learning" with school. Boring subjects, boring teachers, and less than ideal surroundings. So as adults, when we think of needing to "learn" something, it's almost as if we need to give a speech, or walk across a tightrope above a pit of hungry alligators. But the truth is learning (strengthening your brain) is just as straightforward as doing pushups or jogging. In fact, most advances in human history were made by natural learners who used their natural creativity. Only in the last couple hundred years did schools become "factories to build factory workers." Once you realize how to RE-Remember your natural learner, thinking of learning something complicated will be just like imagining getting in shape. Most people get excited when they imagine getting in shape. They imagine a much healthier and more attractive self. This is the way humans are MEANT to think about improvement. We imagine having the improvement, it makes us feel good, and that good feeling motivates us to get it done. When you apply this to learning (imagining being able to do whatever it is you'd like to do) AND realize that learning is not only EASY, but you can do it without having to sit in a boring classroom, the future looks MUCH brighter.
