  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan21Post.mp4 Way back during the middle ages, there was a lot of new ideas popping up all over the place. One of the main events was the creation of a Christian religion besides the Catholic church. The philosophical differences between the various Christian churches are pretty interesting and very dense. The Catholic Church, was suddenly in a bad way. Up until the protestant reformation, they had TONS of power. Each European country had their own king or ruling system. But so long as they were all Catholic (or back then Christian) they Pope and his Bishops had the final say. Once the protestants came along, this all changed. Structurally, this is like one company that has a monopoly, and gets lazy. Then a startup comes along and changes everything. The protestants were the startup. The Catholics responded by creating the Jesuits. The Jesuits were like secret agents for the Church. Their job was to travel around the world, and try to gain as many converts as possible. They quickly learned something very interesting. That convincing adults of a new religion is very difficult. Kids? Very, very easy. These Jesuits had a saying: "Give me a child at birth and I'll make him a soldier of Christ by seven." Turns out this really doesn't have anything to do with Jesus. It has everything to do with how our minds are configured when we are born. We have a bunch of very basic wiring in our brains. As we go from 0 to 7, a lot of this wiring is finished. Once it's finished, it's pretty much set. This is why whatever religion you learn as a child is hard to change. This is why all kids learn language unconsciously as kids, but learning a foreign language is not so automatic when you grow up. But since there are plenty of people who speak more than one language, it's not impossible. Not by a long shot. And there are also a ton of people who switch religions when they grow up. Or get stronger or weaker in their religion of upbringing. Between 0 and 7 our little brains are like unconscious sponges. As adults, they are still sponges, but it takes a bit of conscious effort. Learning a second language will give you a ton of benefits. If you are in any kind of business with international customers, knowing more than one language will make you worth a lot more to your company. But there is another second language that few people know about. One that is very secret, kind of like being a secret agent. On the surface, it sounds very much like English. But deeper, on an unconscious level, it is EXTREMELY powerful. You can covertly embed ideas into people's minds. Ideas, desires, whatever you want. This is the language of covert hypnosis. You can speak it, and you can write it. Speaking is hard. Writing? Not so much. Write hypnotically and trance out your readers all over the world.

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec18Post.mp4 Nearly all humans have the same basic intentions. We want to operate within the world to get what we want and need. We want some kind of vocation that rewards us for our skills. Skills we can continue to learn. Skills we feel are an expression of our nature. The ideal rewards for these skills are not only money, but recognition. The ideal situation is to present your skills to the world. And have them recognized as skills few others have. And because of that, you get money and genuine validation and recognition. And when you go home at night, with a pocket full of cash and some fond memories in your brain, we like to imagine a positive future. A future when your skills will get better. A future when your income will become higher. A future when your validation and recognition will become greater. This is the human spirit. To dream of presenting valuable skills in exchange for valuable rewards. Sure, free money is nice. But free money inevitably ends in pain. This is why lottery winners, and children of the rich are generally not the happiest people around. But we all have doubts. We all have a horrible fear deep within. One few are courageous enough to face. A fear that we will try our best, we will present our skills to the world, and the world will glance in our direction, and say, "no thanks." That we'll present our skills and somebody will say, "We don't want that." This twin energy pairs live in everybody's brain. In everybody's soul. The angel of success. Of trading skills for increasing success, recognition and admiration. The demon of failure. Of present skills and being told to take a hike. Knowing this gives you an advantage. Just strolling through a social environment, you can glance around at all the people. And see these twins battling for their soul on daily basis. With this knowledge, and only a few words, you can make them feel much better. So much better, they'll remember YOU forever. As being the turning point in their lives. The one stranger who uttered that one strange sounding collection of words. That resonated in their minds for days, weeks, months. We all have fears, we all have hopes, we all have dreams. We are all always on the precipice of success or failure. Every single person whose paths you cross can be tilted slightly away from failure, and toward success. Simply by learning a few structures of language and thought, you can become a real super hero. Not a pretend super hero with pretend powers. But a real super hero of language. A genuine wizard of thought. A gift that you can give to anybody, that will resonate in their brains. Learn this skill, and be remembered. Be valued. Be appreciated, loved, and cherished.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec15Post.mp4 People can, and are, trained just like animals. We have a built in learning system, which is based on the same learning that is built into lower animals. The famous "anchoring" process from NLP is a perfect example. It's based on Pavlov's famous dog experiments. Scientist had a dog. He brought the food, and the dog salivated. He brought the food, and rang a bell, and the dog salivated. He rang the bell WITH the food a few times. Then he ONLY rang the bell, and the dog salivated. He essentially "trained" the dog to salivated at the sound of a bell. Our human learning system works the same way. We learn things by association. When you learn to play an instrument, for example, you learn to associate correct finger movements with pleasing sounds. And incorrect finger movements with un-pleasing sounds. For Pavlov, he only associated ONE external thing with ONE pleasing thing. The bell and the idea of eating. For learning something, we connect GOOD feelings to the things we want to learn. And we connect BAD feelings to the things we want to NOT learn, or UN-learn. If we point ourselves in the direction a large collection of skills, like being fluent in a musical instrument, these bad results (bad notes) and good results (good notes) will slowly GUIDE our behavior toward higher and higher skill levels. This happens consciously, when we can direct our own behaviors. This happens unconsciously, when we "model" behaviors from others. But it also happens the way we ACT around others. If you behave in a certain "bad way" around others, they will slowly and UNCONSCIOUSLY associate those "bad" behaviors with YOU. For example, if you are always nervous, and shifty, and say weird things, people will naturally want to avoid you. They often will not know why. They'll just say things like, "that guy gives me the creeps." Most of the way we train each other happens unconsciously. This is why it's hard to consciously CREATE things that are normally unconscious, like emotional and sexual attraction. There is, however, a kind of hack. A way that leverages THEIR thinking about you. It's actually pretty simple. But it IS a long game strategy. It requires that you accept they will create positive feelings about YOU when you are NOT around. Which means they will be thinking about you. In a positive way. This will NEVER, EVER happen if you talk to them TOO LONG. Beyond the point of maximum positive feelings. The "trick," is to QUICKLY create very positive feelings in them, and then SPLIT. Do this over several interactions, and THEY will subconsciously build up positive feelings about YOU. Just as automatically as Pavlov was "trained" to salivate at the sound of the bell. They will be "trained' to salivate at the THOUGHT of you. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/cold-reading/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct30Post.mp4 Our self aware minds can be seen as a new instinct generator. This may seem to be a silly way to look at our brains. But way back in the early days of pre-human evolution, we pre-humans started migrating around the world. Every other animal has a bunch of pre-programmed instincts that help it survive in a certain environment. They have instincts to dictate what they should eat and what they should avoid. If they make any changes, it takes a very, very long time. There are couple of related birds in South America. They used to be the same species. But for some reason they split. One ended living on one valley. Another one in a nearby valley. After evolving separately for a couple hundred thousand years, their difference? A slight change in their song. This is how long it takes most animals to change. But humans? We have a meta instinct. The ability to learn something new, to the point of unconscious competence. If you have zero training in martial arts, and you get into a fight, it will be very clumsy. Like those Legislators in Taiwan, that sometimes throw punches. They are off balance, their punches miss, and they look pretty silly. This is what happens when you take a basic instinct of self defense, but never practice it. It looks pretty silly. But if you take the time to practice? To take what is instinctive, take it down to the level of conscious competence, and build it up to a much higher level? It will become deadly. Take anybody who has trained any length of time, and their punches will be much effective. Much less chaotic. But the brainpower will be the same. Anything practiced to the level of unconscious competence will take very little conscious brainpower. A black belt throwing a punch will use the same amount of brainpower as an off balance goof throwing an off balance punch. Both are instincts. One is old. One is new. As humans slowly spread out around the world, we HAD to develop this ability. To learn new skills to get food, hunt game, and avoid being killed. Monkeys can only live in the jungle and eat bananas. Humans can live anywhere and eat anything. Because we can learn to eat anything. We can learn to fish, learn to farm, learn to hunt. This is a never ending skill. Of using your new instinct generator. One thing you can continuously improve is how you use language. With just a few minutes of practice a day. You can turn what is jumbled up and chaotic for most people into something that is very effective and very deadly. Learn How: http://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept13Post.mp4 Being told what to do is a comfortable feeling. If somebody tells you what to do, there isn't any worry or anxiety. If somebody tells you what to do, there is little risk. If somebody tells you what to do, so long as you follow the instructions, even if it doesn't work, you can't get in trouble. There are also many drawbacks to being told what to do. You are limited by the person telling you what to do. If they run out of choices, so you do. If they are up to no good, and they keep that from you, you may get in more trouble than you realize. The, "I was only following orders" excuse doesn't usually work out so well. We generally LOVE the idea of being told what to do when it involves money and social skills. If you wanted to learn how to ride a unicycle, you would need to practice. Nobody would ever think they could read a book on how to ride a unicycle and get it right the first time. But for some reason, we think we can learn how to make money or get people to do things WITHOUT needing to practice. Everything takes practice. But since most of us are terrified of practicing social skills or money skills, we pretend that's not true. Kind of like a meta cognitive dissonance. But there are some very sneaky ways to practice these things. Especially when you have a secret operators manual for the human brain. When looking at ourselves, from our own brains, we can be VERY confusing. But when you step back, and take our conscious, self-awareness OUT of the picture, it's surprisingly easy. Turns out that humans are the EASIEST to "train" animals there are. We are so easy to train we can train ourselves. This is one reason why we HAVE self awareness. But you don't need to "train" anybody. Just understand our very basic collection of instincts. Social validation instincts. Social status instincts. Communication instincts. Attraction instincts. And the most important collection of instincts there. Love instincts. Turns out love IS a very, very powerful feeling. But it's not based on magic, or alchemy, or metaphysics. Pure science. The BEST kind of science. The science that is easy to understand objectively. But the absolute BEST feeling there is subjectively. Understand the difference, and you'll see.

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept08Post.mp4 There are two basic ways you can cook. One is to follow a recipe step by step. This doesn't require you know anything about anything. Only that you can follow directions. If you are careful, you can create some pretty good stuff. On the other hand, if know some basics, you can invent your own stuff. Which kinds of things go with others. Some sales jobs offer very little training. They are based on pure numbers. They give you a list of names and numbers, and a script. The more people you call, the more you'd sell. Similarly, the more people they'd hire, they more sales the company would get. Even better is if everybody is paid on commission. At least from the company's perspective. This way, they would need to pay the people who can't sell. Only the people who can. These types of companies tend to sell very basic products and services. The better of a salesperson you are, the higher quality stuff you could sell. The more money you could make. This requires knowing a bit about human nature. Which turns out is pretty simple. Similarly, there are tons of tricks and techniques about how to get a girl to fall for you. Or how to get a guy to fall for you. Even more prevalent are all the ideas, books and courses about how to get your ex back. If you went ahead 1000 years into the future, people would still be trying to find out how to get people to fall for them. Love is the most confusing yet most coveted thing out there. Or in here. But it's not really that complicated. When you are IN love, or OUT of love, it's insanely hard to understand from inside your own head. But from several different viewpoints, and timelines, it's pretty easy. Easy to understand, easy to predict. Which means when it does happen, it will be much more enjoyable. Not only that, but you can accelerate it. Enhance it. Even create it. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/love-instinct/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug22Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, human brains started to get really big. Eventually, a decision had to be made. Because our brains were getting so big, there was a problem with birth. There were essentially two choices. The first choice was that our hips could keep getting wider and wider, so our brains to keep getting bigger and bigger. That wasn't such a good option, because that would force us back to walking on four legs. So the next option was to have us born WAY before we were finished. This is why humans are helpless for the first couple of years. Compare this too all other mammals, who are mobile. Soon after they are born, every other mammal can get up and walk around. We humans, on the other hand, just lay there and stare off into space. For two whole years! Even after we can get up and walk around, our brains are still being built. In one study, they showed a bunch of kids a puppet show. A kid in the puppet show had some chocolate, and put it in a GREEN cupboard. Then later his mom took some of the chocolate out. She made a cake, and then she put it back into the BLUE cupboard. Then the original kid came back. And said he wanted some chocolate. The question to the kids WATCHING the puppet show was WHERE would he look? Not where the chocolate was, but where he THOUGHT it was. The older kids figured it out. But the kids four and younger couldn't. These means even four year old kids, who can walk around and use language pretty well, STILL don't understand about human intentions. They can't extrapolate what happened before and use that to guess what people are thinking. This is why plenty of our limiting beliefs are so, uh, LIMITING. They were programmed in BEFORE our brains were finished. Before we understood how OUR intentions are different from OTHER people's intentions. Before we could understand how to GUESS other people's intentions. For some lucky folks, with positive and supportive role models, they don't much of a problem. But for everybody else, we still are stuck with a lot of these limiting beliefs. Perhaps the most DANGEROUS and INSIDIOUS limiting beliefs is the one that creates social anxiety. The one that makes us feel anxious and nervous every time we even THINK about expressing ourselves. The more intelligent you are, the WORSE this feels. Since this was programmed on an emotional, NON-intelligent level. Luckily, there is a solution. A slow, safe gradual we to REMOVE social anxiety.

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July31Post.mp4 Most people like the idea of being told what to do. Plenty of self development courses are built around this idea. "Watch over my shoulder as I make millions," kind of thing. Step by step blueprints. But simple economics tells us this is impossible. Simple economics and a little bit of thought. Imagine some "guru" DID manage to discover the "secret" to success. And he packed seminar room after seminar room. And told all the attendees the step by step "blueprint" for success. That would work IF they all defined success as building a birdhouse. Or making a cake. Or doing anything that could be done by following a recipe. If EVERYBODY is doing the same thing, and getting the same result, then there will be a LOT of those "results" out there. Which means they won't be worth much. A lot of young adults today are in DEEP trouble. They borrowed a ton of money, to go to college and be told "exactly" what to do. Now all they have is a much of debt. And not many marketable skills. The reason we LOVE the idea of being told EXACTLY what to do is it absolves us of responsibility. We don't need to take any risks. If we do EXACTLY what we are told, and it doesn't work, it's not our fault. If you CAN manage to find a way to be TOLD what to do, AND it happens to pay the bills, this is a dream come true. You get ALL the benefits, and NONE of the risks. If you wanted to stay in the middle of the pack this MAY be possible. If you want an average life, an average relationship, and a bunch of average memories up in your brain, that MAY be possible. Safe, but not a lot of fun. Not very exciting. Worse, is you would NEVER have the ability to dream. It's one thing to DREAM about finding a winning lottery ticket. This is pure fantasy. Even thinking of winning the lottery by buying a ticket is nearly pure fantasy. The odds are more than ten million to one. Dreaming based on your ACTIONS is much more realistic. Much more compelling. When you look BACK over the last few years, and then EXTRAPOLATE what MIGHT come in the future, this is where the human spirit lives. When your dreams are TETHERED to your actions and your history. Any goof can imagine finding magic riches. But few people can dream of slowly CREATING riches. Which one are you? Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July2Post.mp4 A lot of things exists on continuums. One side is one extreme, another side is another extreme. For example, a very common idea is to be motivated by pain or pleasure. Either being motivated by moving away from pain. Or being motivated toward pleasure. Most are a mix of the two. Too far on either side can cause problems. If you are ONLY motivated away from pain, once you get far enough away so the pain diminishes, you'll lose your motivation. You'll always start things, but never finish. On the other hand, if you are ONLY motivated toward pleasure, the pain won't bother you. You'll always be focused on big projects while late bills pile up. Another continuum is being a cause or an effect. Most people would LOVE the idea of having an easy life, where people tell them EXACTLY what to do, and they do it. And it's get them paid enough to pay the bills and live a decent life. On the other hand, there are people who HATE to be told what to do. These types are always doing their own thing, for better or for worse. Most people with their factory settings, and hope for the best. They are halfway between pain and pleasure, halfway between cause and effect, and that's good enough. But the thing about us humans is we have two kinds of instincts. Our factory setting, and new ones. New instincts are anything we can learn to the level of unconscious competence. Most folks only learn easy things to this level. Things that people teach them. Very few are self-motivated enough to ACTIVELY go out and learn skills. But if you happen to be one of those rare types, you can learn any skill you want. You can move your factory settings to anywhere you want. You can be AT CAUSE when you want to be. You can relax and be an effect when you want to be. This is the real benefit of realizing your ability to learn new instincts. That ANY factory settings you have are ONLY a recommendation. You can be like most people, and accept these and hope for the best. Or you can consciously CHOOSE which new instincts you want, and build them in. Kind of like the difference between choosing an off the shelf computer. Or building one from scratch. To whatever specifications you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-esteem/

  13. Most people have heard about the four levels of learning. Unconscious incompetence, when you don't know you suck. Conscious incompetence, when you know that you suck. Conscious competence, when you don't suck, but you've got to use all your brain power to not suck. Then unconscious competence, where you can do it fairly well without needing to think. Many things that we learn come through these four categories. Tying your shoes, writing, driving, riding a bicycle, making a burrito. But there are some skills we come pre-programmed with. Like communication is a skill that we become unconsciously competent at without ever needing to think. We learn to speak before we are fully conscious. But if you were to learn another language, you'd have to go through the four stages. But you can also take something that already exists at the level of unconscious competence, and bring it back up to the level of conscious competence, and make it better. This is essentially what actors do. They take their natural, unconscious speaking patterns and consciously practice them. You can also do this with things like persuasion and seduction. Take your natural communication strategies, bring them up to the level of conscious competence, practice them until they are much more effective. Then drop them back down to the level of unconscious competence. This is the natural process when you take any skill, and improve it through practice. For most skills, there is no upper limit to the level of unconsciously competence. The more you practice, the better you get. Beliefs are similar, but a bit different. Beliefs are exactly skills. But they affect many other skills. Beliefs are like language, in that we learned them much before we were fully conscious humans. But very much like learning to speak better, you can learn to "believe better." How do you do this? More or less the same way. Do some work to find and examine your old beliefs. Rebuild them until they are better and more appropriate. Then practice believing them, until they drop back down to the level of unconscious competence. The thing about beliefs is they affect MANY different skills. So if you target the right beliefs, they will create a kind of domino effect on your skills. Find them, rebuild them, practice them, and drop them back down. Once this happens, a LOT of things will become much easier and much more effective. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/beliefchange/
  14. One of Cialdini's important laws is called "Commitment and Consistency." It's kind of complex how it works, especially from a persuasion standpoint. It's the idea behind sales funnels. You buy a product for $3. Then you buy another product for $19 from the same place. Then you buy another one for $49. Sales funnels use this PLUS scarcity. Each additional sales is a "one time offer." So they are combining TWO of Cialdini's laws. The law of Commitment and Consistency (you already bought one, so one more is consistent) and Scarcity (one time offer).. If you study Cialdini, you'll find the seven laws being used in nearly all advertising. Usually in clever combinations. The Holy Grail of advertising is to create FOMO. Fear of missing out. This usually involves at least THREE Cialdini laws. Most of the time FOMO happens organically and spontaneously. If it does, it's a marketers dream come true. You get a bunch of goofs on TV talking about some product. This gives you authority. Then all your friends are talking about that product. This gives you social proof. Then you realize that these products are hard to get. This gives you scarcity. All these add up to FOMO. Meaning if you WAIT, the products will be GONE. And all your friends will have one, except for you. This is the same psychology behind market bubbles. Everybody is buying, and the price keeps going up. Higher and higher prices mean that LOWER prices are getting scarcer and scarcer. Warren Buffet famously said that when your idiot next door neighbor is getting rich, you can be sure you're in a market bubble. Many of Cialdini laws play out in VERY interesting and complicated ways. One of them is that the older we get, the more set in our ways we become. This is Commitment and Consistency in action. Doing NEW things requires a lot of brain power. We don't like using brain power if we don't have to. But some things we keep even if they don't quite "work." This is how our limiting beliefs are formed. We took on a belief when we were very young. It was formed from a protective, defensive standpoint. But as adults, they no longer support us. They do the opposite. They KEEP US from doing what we want. But unless we find them, DISPROVE them, and then rewrite them, they'll keep working. The process not that different, structurally, from rebuilding an engine. It's a pain to take it apart and put it back together. But once it's back together, it's faster, stronger and much more powerful. Do this with any belief you want. So you can do any behavior you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/beliefchange/
  15. A few months back they had a new chess computer. Called "Deep Learning," it wasn't really a chess computer. More a "meta computer." Up until that point, the only way to build a chess computer was to program it to play chess. Meaning you had to give it algorithms to reference from any position. So when the computer saw a opponent's position, it had to calculate all the potential moves. But doing that, "calculating all the potential moves," had to be programmed in. Meaning somebody had to put in all the rules and algorithms based on each potential position. But the new "Deep Learning" algorithm was much more meta. They just gave this computer the rules of chess and told it to play against itself. To essentially learn from trial and error. And when they finally played each other, it wasn't even close. The Deep Learning computer obliterated the then FASTEST and BEST chess engine. Essentially this was TWO STYLES of learning. The old way of, "Tell me exactly what to do in each situation." Against the new way of "learn by trial and error." The first way is very compelling to most of us. Because it REMOVES all the risk. And it absolves us of responsibility. If we are TOLD exactly what to do, and we do that, AND it doesn't work, it's NOT our fault. Since we were doing EXACTLY what we were told. Sadly, many people would prefer to be told what to do, step by step, and live a life of mediocrity. So long as they never have to take a risk, and never take much responsibility, they are OK with that. If you want more, you've got to do more. Luckily, all humans come PROGRAMMED with tons of learn by trial and error algorithms. We are much more like the new, MORE POWERFUL computer. But this requires we don't have any anxieties or fears about what we are learning to do. Learning by trail and error in this situations is generally called PRACTICE. That's exactly what you are doing when practicing free throws, or practicing the piano, or practicing solving algebra problems. Practicing IS learning by trial and error. Only when we think in terms of practicing in social situations does it start to get kind of scary. Which is almost always what we think about when we think about making money. But you can practice making money skills just as easily as you can practice piano or basketball skills. And once you REMOVE the anxiety and social fears, it will be JUST LIKE practicing anything else. The more you practice, the better you get. The better you get, the more money you make. As long as you want, as much as you want. Once you remove the negative beliefs, it's purely mechanical. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/

  17. Most people are aware of the four stages of learning. Unconscious incompetence, conscious incompetence, conscious competence and unconscious competence. The final stage, unconscious competence, is when you know stuff by heart. When you can play a song on the piano without thinking. Or bake a cake from memory while talking on the phone. And when it comes to getting to that last level, there are two "sub" levels. The first is when you learn something completely new. This is how most people think of that last level. Learning to ride a bike, tie your shoes, drive, juggle a few bean bags, etc. But there's another sub level many don't consider. It's the one Bruce Lee referred to when he said (paraphrased): "Before Jeet Kun Do, a punch is just a punch. During Jeet Kun Do, a punch is a careful balance of energy and breathing and intention and focus. After Jeet Kun Do, a punch is just a bunch. But a much more efficient and deadly punch." What he was referring to is taking something that is ALREADY at the level of unconscious competence. Then purposely bringing it back down to the level of conscious competence. Looking at it carefully, and improving it. And then PRACTICING it to the level of unconscious competence again. This is how athletes and musicians and artists make their living. Especially if they are competitive. They are ALWAYS trying to increase the level of unconscious competence. The level they can play at without thinking. The more they practice, the better they get. Most of us don't think like this. Most of us think in terms of learning something until we're done learning. Then we can get back to our comfortable auto-pilot lives. Consider, however, the importance of one skill. One skill you have NOW at the level of unconscious competence. And purposely downgrading that to the level of conscious competence. And carefully enhancing it, rearranging it, improving it. And practicing until it is at a completely NEW level of unconscious competence. A level that Bruce Lee called more efficient and deadly. What skill is that? Your spoken language. How you translate your thoughts into words. Like a first level punch, your words are just words. Sloppy, off balance, chaotic, and not very effective. But after you UPGRADE them, they will be effective and deadly. And since VERY FEW PEOPLE ever even consider improving how they think and speak, you'll have a huge advantage. Over everybody. On Earth.

  19. Linguistic presuppositions are a very powerful grammatical structure. They are when you "hide" things inside of a sentence. Kind of like covertly slipping small ideas into people's brains. For example, consider this sentence: "Linguistic presuppositions are powerful." If I just said that on its own it would be easy to disagree with. You could say, "No they aren't." But I could take that same idea and hide it in a sentence. For example: One of the reasons linguistic presuppositions are so powerful is because they let you control other people's thinking without them knowing it. The above sentence works like a "sleight of hand." Where a magician does something on one side, where he wants your attention, but the REAL magic is being done where nobody is looking. In the above sentence, most people would focus on the part about controlling other people's thinking. If you read the above sentence, it would be difficult mentally to say: "Wait a minute, I disagree that linguistic presuppositions are powerful." This structure, of hiding ideas inside long winded sentences is what you see political pundits on TV do all the time. But the idea of something be PRESUPPOSED is very, very powerful. Because you can presuppose a lot, not only through words, but through actions. One of the most common "ideas" from TV shows involving lawyers and cops is the "one time offer." The district attorney is talking to the bad guy and offers him a deal. But then he says the magic words. That it's a one time offer. This evokes both scarcity and the fear of missing out (FOMO). Both are VERY POWERFUL when eliciting the desired actions from your targets. Sales people use it all the time, because it works. But there's a way to PRESUPPOSE this "one time offer" energy in your behaviors. Your subconscious non verbal communication. A way to build in the IDEA into your personality that YOU are a "one time offer." This is the polar opposite of "desperation energy." Desperation energy is like an offer that NEVER EXPIRES. Needless to say, if an offer NEVER expires, it won't be very compelling. Especially when it comes across as a very needy, "please accept me" type of energy. The opposite is very rare. Very attractive. Very valuable. Because it ALWAYS radiates that combination of scarcity and FOMO. And because it comes through your subconscious behavior, it's always implied. Presupposed. Which will not only make YOU insanely attractive, but it will make everybody else very motivated to ACT FAST. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/walk-away/
  20. When you were a kid your mom was worried about you hanging out with the wrong crowd. All moms are worried about their kids hanging out with the wrong crowd. Because we tend to pick up "bad habits" that way. A few decades of data show this to be true. The idea of nature vs. nurture is an old one. Take the idea that wealthy people have more books in their houses. Which of these come first? Does their desire to read books give them knowledge (from the books) and then they use that knowledge to make money? Is the desire to learn things the SAME knowledge that helps them make money? If you give a bunch of books to poor people, will they become rich? The trouble with questions like this is they are VERY HARD to test. Any kind of question about human behavior can only be guessed at. So what about nurture vs. nature? There IS plenty of data they can look at. And that is data from twins. Identical twins born together and raised in the same house. Identical twins raised apart. Adopted kids raised in the same house. Non identical twins raise together (same house) and separately. The data is pretty clear. There are TWO main things that create our ADULT behavior. Half is our genes, the other half our NON-FAMILY peer group. This is why mom was so worried about you hanging with the wrong crowd. Because we DO tend to pick up habits from our friends. If we have "good" friends, we pick up good habits. If we have "bad" friends we pick up bad habits. The REAL QUESTION is HOW, exactly, do we pick up those bad habits? We model. We subconsciously copy the behavior from people we admire. If that means doing homework and getting good grades, that's good. If that means smoking and robbing liquor stores, that's bad. But this is only ONE WAY we "pick up" behavior. There are many ways to "pick up" behavior. Sometimes we are "trained" by our environment. This is essentially how we pick up habits from friends. They (our friends) are our environment. Our environment which TRAINS us. Or we can TRAIN ourselves. This is when practice things like sports, music and multiplication tables. Or we can TRAIN others. Most people try to do this, but not successfully. The trick to training others is to be as COVERT and as SUBCONSCIOUS as you can. Meaning the more they DON'T KNOW they are being trained, the easier it is to train them. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/people-training/
  21. Once when I was very young, my dad and I were watching our dog run around the back yard. The dog got near a small apple tree. My dad remarked that he didn't want our dog to get a taste of the apples. At the time, I had no idea what he meant. But later I did. An apple tree, to a dog, is just a regular tree. And since dogs don't generally eat trees, they don't think of an apple tree as anything special. But this particular tree was pretty small. Small enough so the dog could reach some of the apples. My dad was worried that if the dog ate one of the apples off the tree, she would realize that particular tree had some food. And she would eat ALL the apples. Beginner's luck CAN be pretty fun, but it can also be terrible. Usually the more obvious it is, the less dangerous it is. If you walked up to a craps table in Vegas, for example, and tossed down some money and won, you would KNOW it was beginner's luck. Because you were in Vegas, you would KNOW that gambling is very risky. On the other hand, if you tried your hand at investing, and got lucky, you might actually conclude that investing is easy. A friend actually did that, by making a spectacularly boneheaded mistake. He actually bought the WRONG stock. This was way back in first Internet bubble of the late nineties. The stock he WANTED to buy was less than a dollar. The stock he DID buy was less than a dollar. But he got the ticker symbol wrong. But the stock he DID buy, went up by over 1000% in the next couple months. He invested a little UNDER $300, and got back a little OVER $3000. This essentially TRAINED HIM that investing was EASY. A lesson that later led him to lose EVERYTHING when the bubble popped around 2000. Learning the wrong lessons can be CATASTROPHIC. Learning the RIGHT lessons can be EXTREMELY helpful. Even more, the actual process of learning (self training) is pretty easy. Just as easy as training others. And so long as you have their best interests in mind, you can train them to do ANYTHING and they'll never know. We humans are trained by our environment all the time. So when you slowly train in certain behaviors in others, they'll never know the difference. They'll think it's natural. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/people-training/
  22. All humans are motivated by two things. Two very vague, and very strong motivators. They color all our thinking and acting. We want more of one thing, and less of another. One is pleasure, one is pain. Pain and pleasure are extremely vague ideas. But everything we either move towards, or move away from, can be put in one of these two categories. Things we want, and things we don’t want. This is how all humans learn. When we do things “correctly” it FEELS good. When we make a “mistake,” it FEELS bad. Since we are naturally programmed to do more stuff that FEELS good, we tend to self correct. Especially when we have a much larger goal on the other side of whatever we are practicing. For example, imagine you had a vision in mind of being the star basketball player of your school, and all the good stuff that came along with that. Because that END POINT was so compelling, the natural trial and error would be self motivating. The mistakes you made while practicing wouldn’t be so bad. Because they would give you valuable feedback to get CLOSER to your ultimate goal. All learning (or practicing) is enjoyable if WE are going toward a bigger goal that WE chose. On the other hand, if you are forced to sit and listen to some cranky old lady talk about long division, it SUCKS. You have no idea WHY you are learning such a horrific thing. So when you make a mistake, it REALLY sucks. When you do it correctly, it might feel good, but only because there is no pain. If you happen to be the teacher’s pet type, then doing long division correctly will give you pleasure. This is why the best teachers always find a reason to give their students proper motivation. To explain WHY they need to learn such boring stuff. Learning something for YOUR OWN reasons is fun and sometimes exhilarating. Learning something “just because” pretty much sucks for everybody. But there is another way to inspire people. Completely subconsciously. When you are overtly teaching or training, everybody KNOWS why they are doing what they are doing. To the extent they have a good reason, they’ll enjoy it. But you can also teach completely subconsciously. Not just information, but behaviors. So long as you are SUBCONSCIOUSLY motivating them by THEIR pleasure points, you can slowly train ANYBODY to do pretty much ANYTHING. Needless to say, this is a very POWERFUL skill. How many ways can YOU imagine using it? Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/people-training/
  23. They say a directionless arrow never misses its target. Meaning if you just randomly shoot an arrow without choosing a target, you can’t miss. On the other hand, if you shoot an arrow at a target, you most definitely CAN miss. Why would you want to shoot an arrow without aiming at anything? Maybe it’s fun. Maybe you like to watch the arrow sail through the air. Maybe you like to imagine your an archer in an ancient battle. None of those guys really aimed. They just sort of picked and angle and hoped for the best. With a bunch of archers on one side of a battlefield, and a bunch of soldiers on the other, you’re bound to hit something. Unfortunately, this isn’t a very good life strategy. Imagine a guy going out to meet girls. Ideally, he’d LOVE to end up with a sex party threesome with a couple of disease-free, porn star freaks. But most normal dudes will take whatever they can get. Which usually ends up not being much. This is like just shooting your arrow in a battle and hoping for the best. Instead, consider the idea of having an actual target. The threesome might be a bit too much. At least in the short term. Believe it or not, having a long term, “horizon goal” of having tight enough game to talk ANY group of females into a sex party is a worthy goal. One that is WAY out there. One that compels you to keep improving. The best way to keep improving is to choose very tiny, very achievable goals. Week one might be getting eye contact and smiles from five ladies. Week two might be getting a few short conversations. Week three might be getting some actual phone numbers. Week four might be going on one date. Most guys DON’T like this. It seems LONG and tedious. Most guys want the sex party RIGHT THE F NOW! But here’s the great paradox of life. The bigger your target is (sex party, for example) the less forward progress you’ll make. The smaller your target, the more RAPID you’ll make forward progress. This is a harsh question, but consider it. Instead of “sex party” swap out any equally desirable goal. Beach house, corporate president, etc. How closer are you to that goal compared to one year ago? Now imagine doing the slow, week by week plan. Assuming you’d stick to it, and make slow, gradual, tortoise like progress, how far would you be in a year? This is the secret to real tangible achievements. The kind that will make your friends ultra jealous. The slower you go, the faster you’ll get there. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-skills/
  24. In sports, a common saying is “leave it on the field.” Which means when you play a big game, you put in 100% effort. So when the game is over, you’ve given everything. This is a fantastic idea for sports. The problem with metaphors like this is when they are misapplied. For example, let’s say you wanted to walk across the room and talk to somebody. The “leave everything on the field” approach isn’t so appropriate. When you’re playing sports, especially an important game, winning is the ONLY thing. (Except maybe for little league...) Any team that loses the championship game and shrugs it off as a learning experience may be missing the point. Imagine your favorite team after losing the superbowl or the world series or the world cup. “Well, we didn’t win, but the important thing was we learned a lot about our capabilities and we tried some new plays which worked out pretty well.” Most people would be understandably angry. But this is an IDEAL response for anything that is NOT sports. In fact, not getting a hundred percent success rate is a very, very good thing. Paradoxically, when you DO get a hundred percent success in anything that is NOT sports, you won’t really know why. Which means you won’t learn much. Which means you won’t get much better. Which means your ONLY strategy is to “get lucky.” On the other hand, shooting for about an 60-70% success rate is perfect. Because everything that DOESN’T work is the best teacher. This hard to wrap your mind around for most people. Especially if ALL you can see is in a short term time frame. Which is why having a LONG term time frame is essential. So long as you see any interaction or event as ONE of many, on a continuous unfolding future, it’s much easier to accept feedback. The more you can accept ALL feedback, most importantly NEGATIVE feedback, the better you can improve. This is easy in the beginning of the baseball season, for example. There are always a lot of games still to be played. How, specifically, can you cultivate this mindset? By creating something called Horizon Goals. Undefined, but positive goals WAY out in the future. At a skill level much higher than you have now. So that any interaction in the present is more easily seen as PRACTICE. Once you see every interaction as partial practice for the next, continuous improvement is simple. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-skills/
