  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec08Post.mp4 Way back in high school I worked at a movie theater. It got really busy in Friday and Saturday nights. There'd be a big line outside, and went it was ready, we'd open the doors. There'd be a mad rush to by candy popcorn and soda. Common for one person to grab some seats, and somebody else to grab the popcorn. Then my boss got the idea to set up another stand in the back of the theater. Not a full fledged stand, but a cart with some stuff pre-made. A few cokes, a few popcorns, some candy. The first girl who tried it just stood in the back. Nobody bought anything. Then they let me give it a whirl. I absolutely LOVED it. Because I didn't just stand there waiting for customers. I would slowly push the popcorn cart up and down the aisles, screaming like an old school pitchman. The first few times I was petrified. It seemed like a good in my mind. A fun idea in my mind. But once I started screaming, and all the people were looking me like some weird clown kid that escaped from the mental hospital, it didn't seem so fun. Until I muscled my way through the fear and found a FANTASTIC correlation. The more energy I put into it, the more I sold. Pretty soon I saw it as my mission to sell out before every show. The goofier of a pitch I came up with, the louder and more sillier I belted out the pitch, the more I sold. I once saw an interview with the guy who played Walter White, the Breaking Bad character. He said as an actor, you must confront a paradox. That most humans, as our natural setpoint, want to be as low profile as possible. But to be an actor, you HAVE to express all your emotions. He said the deep fear is that we will express our emotions, we'll get rejected. But the opposite happens. The MORE we express our emotions, not just the easy ones, but ALL of them, the MORE people will not only accept us, but EMBRACE us. Why is this? We ARE emotional creatures. We like to think we are logical. We aren't. Which would you rather do, watch a FANTASTIC drama that yanks your emotions all over the place? Or study algebra? When you buy a shirt or other piece of clothing, do you do a pure logical treatment of cost-benefit analysis of the skin protecting elements of the fabric? Or do you buy a shirt because it will make you look COOL? Hopefully cool enough for all those sexy people to notice you? Emotions are the most powerful engine of human expression. Master your emotions, and master everything. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/emotional-mastery/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov18Post.mp4 Social skills are necessary. But social skills are also very difficult to practice. Anything that has social skills built into it is something we don't even think of as skills to learn and improve. We tend to put them in the category of being good at them, or not being good at them. Being shy or outgoing. Being introverted or extroverted. There's even some very complex ideas about a personality TYPE. And once you determine your type, that's it. If you're not the "type" to make a lot of money, oh well. If you're not the "type" to be good with the ladies, oh well. If you're not the "type" to do well in job interviews, oh well. This is like MANY of our self-accepted limitations. They have two sides. One side is it feels very comfortable. Very safe. Because claiming to be a "type" absolutely absolves us of the responsibility. We can even pretend it's not our fault we can't get what we want. We are, after all, programmed with DNA, and an upbringing that we had nothing to do with, right? Sure, we'd LOVE to make more money, but that's just the way it goes. We'd love to be more socially outgoing and playful around attractive people, but that's just the way it goes. You CAN accept your limitations. You CAN accept that you'll NEVER do better than you are now. That it's not your fault. That's common, and safe, but pretty boring. Or you can slowly improve yourself. Imagine if nobody knew about exercise. Everybody just ate whenever they got hungry. And they ate whatever tasted good. Some people had jobs in factories. Some people had jobs behind desks. Some people were WAY overweight, but they figured that was JUST the way there were. Other people who were in shape, well, those guys are just lucky. That would be SILLY! Clearly, there's plenty of evidence that people CAN improve their health. It's certainly not easy. But it's absolutely possible. Increasing social skills is the same way. So long as you do it slowly, safely and consistently, you WILL get better. Sure, it won't be like magic. It won't happen overnight. But it WILL happen. One of the biggest fears of improving social fears is the idea of getting rejected. But there are plenty of ways you can improve your social skills without EVER worrying about rejection. A lot of ways to improve your playfulness, without EVER worrying about rejection. A lot of ways to improve our overall attraction, without EVER worrying about rejection.

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug23Post.mp4 There are some very enlightening surprises you'll find once you start to get over any social anxiety. The first realization is that ALL people have a certain amount of social anxiety. Everybody is different around new people, compared to close friends. Everybody is a little bit more withdrawn around new people. It's common to put people into binary categories. Introverted, extroverted. Shy, outgoing. But in reality, these are very flexible sliding scales. Nearly ALL people are MORE withdrawn and MORE nervous around people they don't know. The more they value the unknown person, the more withdrawn they are. It's EXTREMELY rare to be SO self confident, SO relaxed and comfortable with who you are to NEVER worry about anybody's opinion. In fact, people who CLAIM they don't worry about other people's opinions are being very self deceptive. That would be like claiming you NEVER get hungry or sleepy or horny. Humans are EXTREMELY social animals. It is a very important and very powerful INSTINCT to be concerned about others. If somebody really didn't care about what other people thought, they wouldn't spend ANY money on fashion or clothing. They would go to parties wearing the SAME stuff they wore around the house. Old sweats, slippers, tattered T-shirts, etc. But they don't. The first step is to stop thinking in terms of HAVING something called "social anxiety." As if only YOU have it, and nobody else has it. It's not like a cold, that you can catch and then get rid of. It's part of every normal human's makeup. It's a matter of decreasing it to MANAGEABLE levels. If you can't do things you WANT to do, then it's NOT at a manageable level. If you do things you want to, but you're a little bit more careful, that IS at a manageable level. Once you start thinking of it like a muscle, that can be weak or strong, you're halfway there. This will also help you get rid of any "magical thinking." Anything that sounds like you get any benefit with "one weird trick" is magical thinking. But if you think of it like muscle, you can exercise it like a muscle. There is NO rush. Because you have your entire life ahead of you. How do you exercise social confidence? Slowly. Carefully. Consistently. Inside your own brain, your own home, and your own comfort zone. Five minutes a day is all you need. Do a little bit every day, and pretty soon social anxiety will not keep you from doing what you want. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/social-anxiety-killer/
