  1. 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 u
  2. 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 mak
  3. 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
  4. 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 int

  10. 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

  13. 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 electro

  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr16Post.mp4 Metaphors are everywhere. Way more than people realize. Some people think of metaphors as mini-stories. Or like "this is like that" kind of thing. Like dancing can be a metaphor for relationships. Men lead, women follow, etc. The switch roles and things get messed up. Or the famous Forest Gump one. Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get. If you remember your English, you know the difference between a metaphor and a simile. Similes use "like." Your

  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov19PostA.mp4 A sense of humor is something that people are said to "have." What, specifically, does this mean? George Lakoff, a student of Noam Chomsky, theorizes that we use verbs and prepositions to describe how we think about intangible nouns. For example, consider the idea that you are "in" a relationship. A relationship is an intangible noun. Another name for the word relationship is it is nominalization. A noun created from a process verb. To relate to somebody. The noun, "relationship" is created from th

  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept15Post.mp4 Humans tend to externalize quite a bit. It's a very useful instinct. Imagine an ancient dude is out hunting. He tosses his spear at a animal and misses. If he got angry or upset at himself, that would NOT be very effective. Externalizing, on the other hand, would be very effective. Getting mad at the animal. This would cause anger. Anger would create more energy and motivation. This worked perfectly back in the day. When it was US vs. our environment. US were the people we lived with.
  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept07Post.mp4 One interesting aspect of our language is the metaphors we use. The problem with MOST of these metaphors, is that we really have NO idea why they were chosen. For example, a common expressions is "raining cats and dogs." Everybody knows this means it's raining pretty hard. But nobody really knows why. Sure, there's a few theories, but it's impossible to know. Because who knows how long people used them BEFORE writing them down. Way back in the day, there wasn't much stuff being written. Books and news
