  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec03Post.mp4 Here's an interesting riddle you can use next time you're hanging out with some buddies. Riddle: What does capitalism, Led Zeppelin, Schroedinger's cat, and the Big Bang have in common? These are all labels given by "enemies" or "adversaries" or "non-believers" to an idea that was later accepted by the idea people. For example, "capitalism" was a label created by Marxists, to make capitalism seem more evil, so the Marxists could more easily defeat it. Jimmy Page was famously at some party talking about putting a new band together. He explained it, and somebody said, "Yeah, that'll go over like Led Zeppelin," which means it won't work. The idea of Schroedinger's cat was created by a guy who thought quantum physics was a silly idea. "So you're saying that a light is both a particle and a wave at the same time? Yeah right! I'll get you got a cat in a box that is both alive and dead at the same time!" One old school science guy came up with the idea that the universe just decided to "poof" into existence. And a radio host was talking about it like it was a dumb idea. "So, let me get this straight, once upon a time there was nothing, and then some big, what, bang? created everything? Dumbest idea I've ever heard!" One of Orwell's ideas was that the government will change the meanings of names to suit their purpose. This is where the famous: "Freedom = slavery" idea comes from. To be sure, the meaning of words can change quite a bit. In the previous four examples, those are kind of extreme. They originators of the idea took the negative label and flipped it around. If you said, "Led Zeppelin" in the fifties, it would immediately conjure up meanings of utter failure. But if I heard that today, I'd immediately be filled with fond memories of college, loud music, and circulating blunts. Linguists have noted that with the invention of the internet, new words and changes in meaning of existing words are changing much more rapidly. Even in the dating world, there are TONS of "labels" that didn't even exist five years ago. For example, there are plenty of -cel words. Starting with "incel" which, in case you don't know, means "involuntarily celibate." Dudes that want nothing more than to get laid, but can't. Another word that has been mangled all over the place is "alpha." In it's original use, it means the ONE "animal," sometimes a wolf, sometimes a human, that is THE leader of THE pack. Today it can mean anything related to confidence. But imagine being in the presence of a REAL alpha, way back in the day. The ONE GUY who everybody depended on. The ONE GUY who was responsible for keeping everybody ALIVE. That guy would be a kajillion times more attractive than any "wanna be" alpha today. And if you can understand what alpha meant THOUSANDS of years ago, and walk and talk and think like that, you WILL radiate ANCIENT alpha energy. Not modern, "pretend" alpha energy.

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept06Post.mp4 If you study sales, you'll eventually run into objections. Things customers say that indicate they don't want to buy. The next step is to figure out how to "reframe" those objections. So when the customers says them, you can come up with somebody better. The best reframes are the ones that turn a reason NOT to do something into a reason TO do something. For most sales people, this is about as far a they get. But a much more effective and enlightened approach is to anticipate the objections before they come up. And then build in reframe IN to the sales pitch. Think of this as a kind of "objection inoculation." It cuts the knees off the objection before it makes the transition from their subconscious to their conscious. This is why once you truly believe you can handle the objection, it never comes again. From a purely linguistic standpoint, this seems paradoxical. But from a non-verbal perspective, it makes sense. If two boxers are fighting, they'll be able to "sniff out" each other's weaknesses. If a customer is sitting across from a salesperson, the customer will be able to "sniff out" the salesperson's weaknesses. This is mostly subconscious. The customer is NOT sitting there like Spock, visualizing all the logical arguments. When a customer voices an objection, it just "pops" into their brain. Their subconscious reads the salesperson's non verbal body language. Finds a weakness. And attempts to exploit this weakness by popping an objection into their conscious mind. Just like a boxer doesn't need to consciously notice the weakness in their opponent. If they've trained enough, to the point of unconscious competence, everything's unconscious anyway. This is even TRUER when it comes to dating and seduction. When you walk over, WORRIED about what to say, you are radiating that. So she, or he, picks up on that. But just like in sales, if you can turn an objection into a REASON to "buy" it will work the same way. But much, much more unconsciously. Much more by radiating a very, very strong frame. This is where "agree and amplify" comes in. She tosses out an objection, seeing how you'll handle it. Most guys crumble. Some guys block it, duck, spin kick it. But some guys don't flinch at all. They AGREE with whatever she said. They say, "Yes! I AM like that! I LOVE that about me!" If this is said congruently, it changes the whole dynamic. There is one more area where this type of communication happens. And it happens ALL THE TIME. The battle between desire and objection. Where, specifically, does this exist? Inside your brain. Part of you wants a ton of stuff. But for every one of these things, another part of you says, "Gee, I don't know..." Learn to overcome THESE and all real life obstacles will VANISH.

  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept05Post.mp4 One idea from an old book is even older. The book is "Psycho Cybernetics." Written by a doctor who had a lot of "data" about self perception. And one of the recommendations (not the main recommendation) is to not ever compare yourself to others. This is much, much easier said than done. From a personal development standpoint, this is good advice. If you are slowly moving forward toward a goal, for example. You can look at how you are now. You can look at how you were a year ago. And this will make you feel good where you'll be in a year. But this takes a LOT of mental fortitude. Because they'll always be a bunch of loud mouth chuckleheads running around bragging about how EASY it is. What makes this entire concept much more difficult is most everything is a competition. If you are being compared to a hundred other guys interviewing for the same job, they won't really care how much better you are today compared to a year ago. They want the BEST out of the candidates. An attractive girl has TONS of guys competing for her attention. If you walk up to her and tell her how much better you're doing, from a self confidence perspective, than you were a year ago, she might smile. She might even tell you congratulations. But she won't invite you back to her place. This brings up another problematic idea. Most guys see girls and money as some kind of "reward." Like you do your homework and get a gold star. You clean your room and get an extra scoop of ice cream. You get a degree and your "reward" is a high paying job. None of that is true. Nobody unless your blood kin will give you a REWARD. Everybody else, which includes EVERYBODY not related to you, is operating form a PURELY selfish mindset. They will ONLY "give" you anything if they are getting something BETTER in return. No hiring manager, for example, is going to pay you $50,000 a year UNLESS they think your presence at the company will generate MORE than $50,000 in revenue. No girlie will EVER give you some thrills unless she thinks that is the ONLY way of keeping you around. Which means you MUST be able to satisfy her, according to what she wants. Most guys do the opposite. Both for job interviews and ladies. Guys show up, and ask to be "given a chance." Nobody will give ANYTHING or ANYBODY a chance with money or sex on the line. Imagine buying a mystery box at your supermarket. They asking price is $50, but you have NO IDEA what's inside. And all the guy says to try and sell it is: "C'mon, man, give me a chance!" However, there is a VERY EASY way to stand out WAY above all the other slobbering goofs. To make her feel SO GOOD when you are around, she'll do anything to keep you or to see you again. This is not only easy, but counterintuitive. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/metaphor-mastery/
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept01Post.mp4 One of Cialdini's laws of persuasion is "liking." Meaning the more we "like" somebody, the more we'll take whatever they say at face value. For example, imagine you're in some store, looking to maybe purchase something. Let's say it's something you've been wanting for a long time, and it's a few hundred bucks. And just when you're about to turn away, and think about getting it later, you see an old friend. A good friend. A friend you've helped bury bodies, and they've helped you bury bodies. A friend that would help you break out of prison if you needed him. A friend that makes you feel really good when you see him. And he looks at you, and at that thing you are about to buy, and says: "Dude, that thing is AWESOME! I own six of them! Damn you should buy it NOW!" Chances are, that recommendation from a friend would push you over the edge. This is why RAPPORT is so important. When you match somebody's body language, it sends a very STRONG message: "I am like you." This is delivered subconsciously and powerfully. And since most people LIKE THEMSELVES, we tend to like others which we feel FAMILIAR and comfortable with. Body language rapport INCREASES the "liking" law of influence. What else triggers the "liking" law of influence? A pretty face, a small waist and some BIG BOOBS! Well, not necessarily those things, but an attractive person. This is why the halo effect is so powerful. We look at pretty people. We AUTOMATICALLY get a deep subconscious feeling that says, "I like that person!" So when they say stuff, we don't question it NEARLY as much. For example, consider this mental split test. Situation one, you're at your local food court or any place where you need to make a food choice. Then a GORGEOUS woman (or dude if you like) shows up, and whispers seductively in your ear: "Hey sweetie, I really think you should consider choice X, it makes me feel really, really good..." Most normal humans would get choice X. (and maybe a boner...) Now imagine that SAME sentence, but coming from a smelly homeless guy with pee stains all over his pants. And when he whispers that to you, you can feel some of his spittle going inside your ear! Gross, dude! You wouldn't choose X, you'd RUN! But the BEST way to make yourself likeable is to DEMONSTRATE this. Big boobs, rapport, these are all QUICK and unconscious things. A much, much better way to DEMONSTRATE liking is to expand their mind map and stories. To really pay attention to, expand and appreciate the subjective ideas they've got in their mind. Big boobs and rapport are kind of binary. They either exist or they don't. But the MORE you expand THEIR mind map and stories, the MORE they'll like you. So much they'll EAGERLY do whatever you suggest. With a happy smile on their face. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/metaphor-mastery/
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug31Post.mp4 One way to look at the human brain is as a meaning maker. We look out into the world, and see stuff happen. Since we aren't robots or Vulcans, we give subjective meaning to those things. We collect all these various subjective meanings together into belief systems. We very much LIKE our own belief systems. We all have a very deep, very inner "core idea" of who WE are. And this core idea is either positive, or negative. And it's part of the job of all our filters and biases to ONLY see things, or to only interpret things that RESONATE with this core idea of who we are. If you ever get into an argument with somebody, and they start getting really angry, it's because you are getting to close to their "core self". We ALL do this. In fact, consider that we can't NOT do this. We collect beliefs, philosophies, world views, etc. that MATCH our core idea of "us." So when you argue against one of these core ideas, YOU may be thinking you're just talking about an abstract idea. But from their perspective, it feels, emotionally and subconsciously, that you are attacking THEM. Not their behaviors or beliefs, but who they are on a DEEP level. Generally speaking, this is NOT a good idea. This is very much like a physical fight. Physically fighting with somebody CAN be a nice hobby. Either in a "fight club" style or in an organized tournament. But you aren't going to make any friends, nor are you going to make any money, nor are you EVER going to get laid while trying to prove people wrong. Especially when you realize the intention they FEEL. You might think you are proving their idea wrong. But they will FEEL that you are trying to DESTROY their sense of self. This will make them JUST as unhappy as an unexpected punch in the face. Instead, consider doing the OPPOSITE. Sure, it feels good to be "right." But if you can put that ancient human desire aside for just a bit, you can get some better things that being "right" while they get angry. What better things? Making friends, making money, and getting laid. Instead of "proving them wrong," instead prove them right. By focusing on their mind map of the world. Of seeing all their hidden beliefs and ideas from the treasure hunter perspective. Of expanding not only their mind map, but all THEIR subjective stories and meanings about the world. This will make them feel very GOOD. And they will associate that good feeling with YOU. Leading more easily to friends, money and SEX. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/metaphor-mastery/

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun11Post.mp4 When I was very young, I went with my older brother to local university. He was in some internship program, and he had to go and do some kind of paperwork. I had about an hour to kill, so I went off exploring. I found this upper level in the gym, next to the office where he was doing his stuff. They had a ton of high jump cushions all stacked up. Maybe about two layers of 6 or 7 mats. There was also this kind of catwalk you could get up by a ladder. About 10 or 20 feet above the mats. Naturally, I took full advantage of this hidden treasure. I must've climbed that ladder 20 times. Falling is fun. But only when you have a soft landing. On the other hand, if you jump off a tall building, only to land on concrete, that's not so fun. This is the kind of stuff that happens in cartoons. Somebody will jump off a roof, land on some concrete, and be flattened. Then they'll unflatten themselves and get up and walk away. The reason this is in children's cartoons is that fear if heights is a built in instinct. This is why it takes most kids a while to jump off a high dive in the pool. This metaphor can also be applied to personalities. We even use the same kind of language. Suppose you look across the room and see somebody that is nervous, closed off, worried and anxious. A common metaphor would that they are stiff. A common suggestion to them would be to loosen up. Nobody likes interacting with stiff people, just like nobody likes jumping onto concrete. We'd rather talk to somebody who is relaxed, open and friendly. These same adjectives could be used to describe those mats I kept jumping into. We don't like stiff people because we have to walk on eggshells. We might say something that might offend them. But with somebody who's open, relaxed, and friendly, they look very "forgiving." Another metaphor that is used to described physical things. Soft, not hard. So, it is clear that being relaxed and open are better than being stiff and worried. The money question is HOW can you be relaxed and open? The reason people are closed off and stiff is they DON'T KNOW what to do or what to say. From inside their brain, and maybe inside your brain, EVERYBODY seems mysterious. So, how can you fix that? By learning to read between the lines. Learning to read the air. Learn to read things like body language and non-verbal behavior. This will give you MUCH MORE information. About everybody around you. So you'll know who's really nice, and who's just pretending.

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May20Post.mp4 If you are a fan of science fiction, you'll eventually run into the idea of a silicon based life form. The reason for silicon is it's kind of related to carbon. Now, why does life on Earth, and according to scientists, life in the rest of the universe made up of carbon? Not just carbon, but carbon, hydrogen and oxygen? Those three atoms have TONS of different ways they can link up together. Carbon has four valence electrons. What does that mean? That carbon can hook up with each one of those valence electrons. Hydrogen has one. Oxygen has six valence electrons. Carbon has four different connectors. Oxygen has six. Hydrogen has one. This means the various combinations are IMMENSE between these three atoms. All the food we eat, where we get our energy from, is stored in these various carbon-hydrogen-oxygen connectors. We eat the food, be it plant or animal, and our bodies break apart those bonds and that's where we get our energy from. On it's most basic level, life is all about connections. The more connections, the more complex, the better. This is true on a very basic, organic chemistry level. This is true on a large, human society level. The more connections you've got, the better. Now consider this experiment. You've got one lonely carbon atom, bouncing around by itself. Will it connect with anybody? Nope. Nobody to connect to. Now fill up that same chamber with BILLIONS of other carbon and oxygen and hydrogen atoms, and what happens? This is how they believe life happened in the first place. A whole bunch of atoms and basic molecules bouncing around. The sheer number of atoms and molecules were so HUGE something was BOUND to happen. What about human connections? If you sit around in your house and wait, they are very unlikely. The only people you'll connect with are Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses. But if you want to make REAL connections, you gotta get out and around people. Not to go through a bunch of cold approaches, or collect numbers. Just get out there and bounce around. That's EXACTLY what they mean when they say, "put yourself out there." This is the cool paradox about human connections. It really is possible to simply "be yourself" and find plenty of connections. All those atoms and molecules that were bouncing around were being themselves. They eventually smashed into each other enough times and created life. Life became more complex. Cut out the long boring middle part, and today there is YOU. Reading this very sentence. Within the same set of rules. The more you "put yourself out there" the more connections will organically happen. What kind of connections? Friends, lovers and everybody in between.
