  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov15Post.mp4 In fiction, there several common archetypes. A fictional hero must be relatable. Which means we must be able to see ourselves in that hero. Part of being a relatable hero is having flaws. The same human flaws we all have. But heroes also have mad skills. Mad skills we wish we all had. Mad skills we all want to strive for. We LOVE the idea of having super powers. Of being able to do things other people can't do. So we can HELP people. To make people feel better. This is a deep human desire. Perhaps the most powerful human instinct. To get out into the world, do something magnificent, and be recognized for our heroic efforts. This is the basic structure of every hero's journey story told since the dawn of time. Even BEFORE the dawn of time. Since way back before we could write stuff down, we could tell stories. Language and storytelling are two sides of the same coin. Our language is filled with metaphors. Abstract ideas that describe deeply intellectual and cerebral concepts. Being able to hallucinate is also a very powerful skill. Every young hunter that went out for the first time was helped by his imaginary role models. The exact SAME archetypes who help us modern humans in modern stories. Language is very powerful. Language is magical, mystical. Yet at the same, language is much more than the words. If you ever travel a foreign country, you'll find it's pretty easy to have a conversation WITHOUT words. Once I haggled with a deaf person over the price of a souvenir. For about twenty minutes. Even though no words were being spoken, my head was filled with pictures. Pictures delivered from her brain to mine. Delivered by facial expressions, gestures, and some very powerful eye contact. Most people don't think about words or the ideas they represent. Most people have half baked thoughts and spit them out with poorly chosen words. Master the art of language, and you will master the art of thought. Simply by being present, and speaking, you will have a super hero impact on those lucky enough to be in your sphere of influence. This is something most never consider. Of being able to improve the quality of your language. Of being able to improve the quality of your thought. But in between thought and language is magic. Spellbinding mind control that will leave a lasting impression. Learn modern magic, and become a wizard. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov08Post.mp4 Metaphors are very helpful, and they are also very dangerous. They are helpful as they ease the transmission of ideas from brain to brain. They facilitate communication. They don't need to be accurate. So long as everybody has an internal idea of what they mean. We all have plenty of shared experiences. But these shared experiences are very hard to articulate. For example, say you see a cute girl across the room. You start walking over, but then you lose your nerve. So you slightly shift your trajectory and walk somewhere else. All the while pretending that was your initial plan. You do this so nobody will know, except you and your buddies, that you chickened out at the last minute. This is a very common experience. So when you came back, and face your friends, EVERYBODY knows what's up. They ask, "Why did you abort?" You answer, "Just wasn't feeling it." They know what you mean. You know what you mean. But supposed you were hosting an exchange student from another planet. A creature that was like Spock. Pure logic. He wouldn't understand why you used the term "abort." He would have no clue what it means to say, "not feeling it." Between humans, these two simple phrases, "abort" and "not feeling it" convey a TON of information. But to a Vulcan, they would be meaningless. This is how metaphors work to convey a TON of information, utterly rich in emotional complexity, with only a few phrases. However, when we argue, metaphors are the LAST thing we need. Because metaphors used to argue tend to completely miss the point. When having a verbal confrontation, often metaphors get in the way. They make very simple arguments SOUND complex. But if you pay close attention, the metaphors are REALLY saying some very, very simple ideas. Your idea is stupid. No, your idea is stupid. You are stupid! No, YOU are stupid!! If you pay close attention to any disagreement, especially online, this is basically the structure. Even worse is when you have a bunch of people on either side of the argument. Because the colorfully metaphorical statement of "you are stupid" means a great deal to one side. Just like "abort" and "not feeling" it means a great deal. The trick is to train yourself to look beneath the metaphors. To FORCE the other person to present their case in NON metaphorical terms. Because when they do that, they will be forced to admit their ENTIRE argument is of the form, "you" or "your idea" is stupid. Once you get them to admit that, it's very easy to crush their position. Just keep asking them why they think that. Since nearly ALL arguments are based on emotions, and NOT logic, this is an easy way to WIN every single argument. With anybody.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov07Post.mp4 Fight Club was a fantastic movie. A lot of ideas about masculine energy, what happens when there is a lack of positive male models, etc. But there was one scene in particular that was interesting. After the two main characters had their first couple of fights. It gave them a much better sense of everybody around them. They would get on a bus, for example, and IMMEDIATELY scan the crowd, and figure out who they could likely beat in a fight, and who they might not. This is one of those movie scenes that is intuitively true. Anything "new" that you do will do this to you. Once I was painting my first condo, a long, long time ago. A friend casually remarked that having had that experience, of going through all the trouble of painting my own house, I would never look at another paint job the same way. And he was right. For a while after that, whenever I went into somebody's home, I found myself checking out the quality of their paint job. Our brains have tons of filters. It has to, otherwise we'd go insane. So it needs to sort for things that are important. And bypass all the stuff that aren't important. This is the same as the red car effect. When you don't notice all the red cars. And then you buy a red car, and see all the red cars. Before, you hadn't done anything to indicate that red cars are important. So you filtered them out. The process of buying a red car slowly re-calibrates your filters. Since you bought one, this means they are important. So you start to see them. Before I painted my own walls, the quality of a paint job didn't matter. But since I spent a lot of time, money, and effort, it became important. Of course, after a while, it kind of become unimportant again. But if you fight, or train consistently, you'll get the "Fight Club" response. Measuring people up will be second nature. This happens when you practice verbal fighting skills as well. So long as you do a little bit of practice every day, you'll have a completely different set of filters. You'll see the things people are hiding behind their words. You'll start to notice the loud obnoxious people who are really cowards on the inside. Not just from a theoretical standpoint. But from an intuitive, deep knowing standpoint. You'll also see the opposite. The seemingly shy, quiet types that you know have rock solid self confidence and self esteem. And once you learn how to read people the way they REALLY are, not just the way they are projecting themselves, YOU will be radiating a much different kind of energy. A much more powerful kind of energy. A much more attractive kind of energy. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct31Post.mp4 You'll find chess metaphors everywhere. Let's say you comeback with a particularly witty comment that silences your opponent. Later you are describing this to your buddies. It would be appropriate, and understandable to describe this as "checkmate." Even if you never play chess, and don't even know the rules, it's still a very appropriate source of many, many metaphors. Ideas like protecting your king or queen. Advancing your pawns. Even the phrase, "only a pawn" is understood. Somebody that is sacrificed for a larger goal. King's, Queen's, Knights, Castles, all pieces of chess. And all characters in ancient medieval battles Conquering land, winning battles. Games are very much metaphors for battles. Because deep within our DNA is a collection of instincts that make us battle ready. To conspire and battle against large animals. To conspire and battle against enemy tribes. So the idea of conspiring and battling on a chess board, or a physical playing field feels very, very familiar. Even deeper, is we use metaphors in our daily language. Metaphors that illustrate how we think. For example, we use plenty of intangible nouns. Things that don't really exist. Like when we say we are IN a meeting. There is really no such thing as a meeting. It's a shared hallucination, and idea. But since we think of it as a container, we use the word, "in." Like we are IN love. But when we fight, even verbally, we use battle metaphors. We DEFEND our position. We OVERCOME objections. We WIN an argument. The best chess players think many moves ahead. The best debaters think many moves ahead. The mental structure is identical. If they do this, I can do this, which they may respond by doing this, that, or the other thing. This works with both chess moves and arguments. There is also whole school of mathematics surrounding this type of thinking. Game theory. This kind of thinking is EXTREMELY useful. Asking for a raise, passing a job interview, getting agreement on a touchy issue with a spouse, partner, or loved one. This is something you practice, just like chess. Luckily, all you need is your brain, and some time alone. Time to think and imagine, and some raw materials. What raw materials? Anything that anybody says. Real or fictional. Past or present. You can practice just like doing push ups or sit ups. Do a little bit every day, and get stronger and stronger. Since few people EVER practice verbal skills like this, you'll soon have a huge advantage. And you'll be able to win every verbal battle you find yourself in.

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept17Post.mp4 The Wire is one of the best TV shows ever. Based on the ratings from IMDB. It's up there with Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones. There's a scene in the first season where a couple of young up and coming gangsters are sitting around a chess board. The two kids are using the board and the pieces to play checkers. And a slightly older kid shakes his head. He proceeds to sit down and explain how chess is played. He describes the game, and the players in term of the characters. Kings, queens, knights, pawns etc. Chess is a perfect metaphor for long game planning. Perfect for business and war. Since business, including selling drugs on TV shows like The Wire, IS war. Back when the British empire was still expanding, they had all their officers read Sun Tzu. Chess is game that follows rules. Sun Tzu wrote, "The Art of War" which is similar. But also very different. Knowing the rules is a good place to start. But within the rules are plenty of different strategies. High level players of ANY sport or game of strategies can be described, very accurately, as artists. Understanding and predicting intentions, future movements, strategies is WAY too much for our conscious minds. To play well at a high level, you need to have spent a TON of time practicing. To a very high level of unconscious competence. So you're not using logic or rational thinking. You are using feelings and intuition. Two things you'll find in art. Not logic. Human nature is vastly complex. Far too complicated to think you can follow some simple rules. Sure, you need to understand the rules. But just like knowing the rules of chess won't make you a decent player, ONLY knowing the rules of life will only get you so far. You need to know the rules. You need to know some strategies. And you need a lot of practice. This is NOT something most people like to hear. Most people want a guaranteed, step by step, blueprint for success. Sure, that's possible if you're baking a cake or making cookies. But when it comes to the massive number of ever changing variables you'll encounter when dealing with other people, you don't just need to be a player. You need to be an artist. Which requires practice, feelings and intuition. The GOOD NEWS is that so many people are too lazy to even THINK about doing this, once you get started, you'll have a HUGE advantage.

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept14Post.mp4 There are a lot of cartoon events that make for useful metaphors. A common one is when Wiley E. Coyote runs off a cliff. And he doesn't know he's no longer on solid ground. He stops, looks the viewer, and holds up a sign. He has to hold up a sign since coyotes can't speak. The sign usually says something like, "uh oh..." This is a very applicable metaphor. Useful for when describing something that has gone on too long. And what worked before is no longer working. Only nobody realizes it. The idea being that once people realize what's happening, they'll have a "Wiley E Coyote" moment. Then everything collapses. Lately, this metaphor has been applied to our economy. Specifically, the MASSIVE amount of global debt. Supposedly, everybody is going to realize that it's no longer working. And we'll all plummet to our death. Or something. But like many metaphors, they are very easily misapplied. The map, as they say, is not the territory. Even in the cartoon, Wiley E never dies. Even though if anybody DID run off a cliff, they would. Gravity is pretty quick. But collapsing economies usually take a while. Plenty of things can go on FAR longer than people think. From a purely historical standpoint, every single society that has ever existed has ended. Sometimes slowly and boringly. Sometimes quickly and chaotically. But they all end. One of the reasons may be that our mind-body systems were not exactly created to keep large societies. Our mind-body systems were designed to live in small, tight-knit communities. Where everybody knew everybody. And everybody had the idea that if you wanted to consume, you had to produce. Even a few decades ago, you won't find nearly the social problems we have today. From a pure social issue standpoint, we ran off the cliff long, long time ago. And only now are we starting to realize it. This is another MIS-APPLICATION of that metaphor. Wiley E Coyote is ONE dude. Society is made up of MILLIONS. And unless we've got our arms linked together, and we are all running of the cliff at the same time, we can not only survive, but thrive. It's just matter of understanding HOW our instincts are causing so much modern disasters. Once you figure this out, it's actually pretty easy to NOT run off the cliff with every other goof. You just need to stop and think for yourself. Look around, figure out what you want, and get it. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/love-instinct/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept11Post.mp4 When I was in elementary school, we had a dog. He was trained just enough. He LOVED to run. I learned how to get him to pull me on my skateboard. It'd scream at him, he'd start running, and off we'd go. Of course, sometimes he'd go too fast for me to keep up. Or he'd take off running before I was ready. He pulled me crashing to the ground plenty of times. Probably the funniest was when I was on my bike. Just cruising along. Not even holding the handle bars. We passed this intersection. Going right was to a big park. Going straight was just along the same residential street. He thought we were going to the park. He didn't bother checking with me first. He just took off. And since I wasn't holding the handle bars, he yanked me right onto the ground. I was a bit upset, as I didn't expect nor want to be yanked onto the pavement. But he just looked at me. "Dude, what? Are you coming or not? Hey, why are you lying on the ground?" This is what happens when you are being led by something powerful. Something with a mind of its own. Something that actually makes decisions without checking with you. This is a perfect metaphor for our instincts. These very powerful "entities" that can pull places we weren't expecting. And when we fall on the pavement, they just look at us funny. "Dude, what?" Sometimes this happens when you find yourself standing in front of the freezer eating a carton of ice cream. Way back in your mind, you had the goofy idea you'd only eat one bite. But there you are. 18, 19, 20... (one more).... 21.. 22... Sometimes, we can PREFRAME our instincts. Like thinking ahead and NOT having any ice cream in the freezer. Or NOT shopping when we are hungry. Avoiding temptation. But sometimes this happens when we least expect. When we see people on the street. Or start talking to people at work. At first we're friendly. Next thing we know we're laying in bed thinking about them. Our instincts are very much like the Borg. Resistance is futile. Or like that one Mohawk dude in The Road Warrior. You! You can run! But you can't hide! If you are really hungry, and are craving a double cheeseburger, this CAN suck. But you can also eat some healthy stuff to take away the craving. Other instincts aren't so easy. Particularly the LOVE instinct. Once this one gets you, watch out. This IS, however, an instinct. And understanding how, why and when it works will be helpful. So you won't end up on the pavement. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/love-instinct/
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July28Post.mp4 Imagine you had a conversation with a boxer. A guy who was about to have the fight of his career. Imagine the fight was going to start in a couple of hours. And suppose you asked his strategy was. What do you imagine he might say? I suppose that would depend on the other fighter in this particular metaphor. And it would depend on the hero of this metaphor. We can assume the fighting style of the hero. We can assume the fighting style of the opponent. This might give us a better imagination how he might answer that question. But even then it would only be a general strategy. If you asked him what specific punches he planned on throwing, and in what particular order, he'd look at you funny. Clearly, that would depend on what the other guy was doing. Once upon a time there was a guy named Lorenz. He came up with mind experiment to help predict weather patterns. A beaker of water, with four variables. Only four. But each variable was dependent on the other three. Change one and you change the other three. But each time you changed any of the other three, you would then change the OTHER other three. They found that by changing the starting conditions only slightly, the system would be WAY different only a few minutes out. This is the foundation of CHAOS THEORY. Even know they KNOW the starting conditions. Even know they KNOW the laws of chemistry and physics. They still CANNOT predict complex systems very far out. Now imagine two people standing across a room. Flirting with one another. Eye contact, smiles, etc. Open posture. But the guy never walks over and starts the conversation. The excuse he gives himself is common. "I don't know what to say." But this is also a complete and absolute myth. That would be like a boxer being afraid to fight because he doesn't know what PUNCHES to throw. But since the guy in this metaphor is a HUMAN, and has plenty of time speaking to OTHER HUMANS, he knows what to say based on unfolding conditions. In reality, that excuse, "I don't know what to say," is a self defensive, self deception. To avoid social exposure. To avoid rejection. Two very PAINFUL things. But that's by looking only at the surface. Of worrying about what they might say, and then worrying about how you might reply. When you focus on the deeper instincts, it is MUCH EASIER. Because the deeper instincts are MUCH easier to lead. To leverage. Making all communication and persuasion VERY easy. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/instint-persuasion/

  11. There are two types of hypnosis that aren't really hypnosis. They are based on setup more than anything. Without that setup, the "hypnosis" is much less effective. The first is stage hypnosis. Consider everything that goes into getting "hypnotized" on stage. For one, the hypnotist has to have a ton of authority. Enough to sell tickets. Then he begins by "hypnotizing" the audience. And while he's doing this, he looks out to find the BEST subjects. Then he calls people up to the stage. And once they are up on the stage, he usually gives them another hypnotic test. The ones who pass get to stay up on stage. The ones who don't are kicked off. So far, what this is a VERY rigorous sorting process. What is he sorting for? The people who are the most SUSCEPTIBLE to hypnosis. Think of a guy who advertised his hypnosis show on Facebook. The ad was seen by maybe 50,000 people. Of those 50,000 people, 50 bought a ticket. Of those, 10 people came up on stage. Of those ten, 8 stayed up after the hypnosis test. He hasn't even used any hypnosis yet, but he's already found the 8 people out of 50,000 that are the MOST SUSCEPTIBLE to hypnosis. And guess what? If you have 8 people out of 50,000 who are INSANELY susceptible to hypnosis, you don't need much hypnosis. You just basically TELL THEM what to do, and they'll do it. And if you watch any stage hypnotist, this is what they do. What about YouTube hypnotists? They do the same thing. The FILTER out the most susceptible people who are the EASIEST to hypnotize. They do it a bit differently, but they still do it. They try their hypno-game on a couple hundred people a day. But the edit out all the ones that don't work. It might take them a week, but they'll eventually get 5-10 people who are VERY EASY to put into a trance. If you try this yourself, you'll find that 1-2% of the population will basically do whatever you tell them. Stage hypnosis and YouTube hypnosis are a sorting process to FIND these people. Once you find those people, the actual words don't matter. But what if you don't want to sort people? What if you want to actually LEARN hypnotic words? Words that will work on most everybody? You can. Because such a kind of hypnosis exists. Because it's COVERT hypnosis, nobody but you can know you are using it. And if you take the time to learn it, it will make you incredibly powerful.

  12. A long time ago I took a cooking class. It was pretty interesting, and I learned a lot of techniques. The lady that taught it was VERY specific in her instructions. About year later, I took another course from the same place. Same type of food, but a different teacher. This class was also pretty cool. Different recipes, different classmates, different teacher. I also learned a ton of stuff. The second teacher was much less specific in her instructions. The first teacher was kind of like a chemistry teacher. Exact measurements, temperatures and times. The second teacher, not so much. Some of this, a bit of that, cook it till it's done, and Bob's your uncle. You can imagine both types of instruction being useful in different situations. Whenever doing something like cooking, or building simple things, specific instructions are generally preferred. Especially if you are clueless, like I was the first time around. But with some things, specific instructions are USELESS. These are generally more complex things. Things that involve other people. With this, at best, any instruction MUST BE metaphorical. For example, imagine you had a buddy that was FANTASTIC with the ladies. A natural. You asked him what to do, and he told you to "Just be yourself." After all, this is EXACTLY what he does. Since he's a natural, he doesn't need to consciously TRY anything. He talks to the ladies just like he talks to anybody else. Relaxed, confident, friendly. At the same time, that advice sounds absolutely useless to somebody with social anxiety. The idea of simply "being yourself" is terrifying. Sure, you can be yourself when you talk to your close friends. But that cute girl with a gorgeous smile? How the heck are you supposed to "be yourself" around her? Whenever we are trying to learn from metaphors, it requires a LOT of trial and error. For example, supposed you wanted to learn to play the piano. And somebody told you to practice until you "got a feel for it." This is also a metaphor. A metaphor whose meaning you would have to DISCOVER for yourself. And the only way to discover that is to practice. Pretty soon, you WOULD get a "feel for it." You wouldn't need to use much of your conscious mind. Look at the notes, and watch your fingers move up and down the keys. EVERYTHING we learn has to be this way. A metaphorical instruction. Trial and error learning. And finally mastery. Of course, if you have LIMITING BELIEFS that is incredibly difficult. Get rid of the limiting beliefs, and learning ANYTHING will be mechanical. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/beliefchange/

  15. One commonly known "truism" is that you cannot not communicate. This means no matter what you are doing, you are "communicating." Often this happens whether you know it or not. How you sit, for example, gives off certain information. Even just relaxing and listening to music, we are communicating a great deal. If you are relaxed, comfortable, and open, that will reflect in your body language. If you are worried, anxious and closed off, that will reflect in your body language. All it takes is one quick glance for EVERYBODY to notice this. Most will notice unconsciously. So most of this communication that we cannot not do is done FROM our unconscious TO the unconscious of others. When we use actual words, we are up on the surface level of conscious to conscious communication. But even then, it's not always clear what we mean. We even say stuff, and other people ask what we mean, and we don't know. A lot of our communication comes out of our mouths before we really even have an idea of what we want to say. If you've ever gotten into a fight with a close friend and said something harsh in the moment, it's hard to undo. Why did you say that? We really don't know. The truth is that there is a HUGE gray area between unconscious and conscious. A common metaphor is that our unconscious is like a powerful ship. And our conscious mind is like the captain. But this is WAY oversimplified. It is very, very rare where we have a thought, carefully plan and rehearse how we intend to transform that thought into words and then make it reality. Even if you ever have to give a speech, you might not remember much of giving it. It's very rare that we are WHOLLY consciously aware of what we are doing. The BEST conversations we have when we are IN the moment. When we DON'T plan what we say. In fact, the more you THINK of specific things to say in situations like that, the more we tend to mess up. Most everything we do is like that. A blend of subconscious and conscious. And not real clear area of where one ends, and one begins. Sure, some things are purely conscious. But these are things that require a very high level of skill. And YEARS of practice. Anything else is a mix. No matter what you are doing then, you'll be on the border. Your skills, your conscious, your unconscious, and the outcome. The more you try and FORCE a specific outcome, the harder it will be. The more you relax and let it happen, the easier it will be. And the more freedom you give yourself to mess up and try again, the quicker you'll improve. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  16. Pegging is a very useful memory technique. But most courses and books don't quite teach it correctly. Pegging, if you aren't familiar with it, is like hanging your keys on a peg. You walk in the door, hang your keys on the peg, and they'll be there when you need them. The idea is to take a new piece of information, and attach it to a pre-existing piece of information in your brain. This part is simple and straightforward. Whether it actually works or not is based specifically on HOW you connect the two ideas together. For example, let's say you were going shopping, and you wanted to remember to buy ketchup. And you wanted to "peg" that idea to the idea your car keys. The idea being you'd walk into the supermarket, hold your car keys and suddenly remember what you were there to buy. (Yes, this is a silly example!) So HOW, exactly, would you connect the two ideas? The ketchup and the car keys? The BETTER of a connection you make the more AUTOMATIC the memory will be. Most courses say you need to make a cartoonish type image. Like a gigantic bottle of ketchup dancing around with a bunch of keys as a necklace. That is a START. But to make it REALLY stick you need to add a couple more things. Unfortunately, these other couples are the MAIN REASON you'll never read about this technique in mainstream learning courses. Because there are TWO THINGS that make us humans remember anything. Extreme pain, and extreme pleasure. Extreme pain is easy. Whatever is the MOST painful thing to imagine. The extreme pleasure is also easy. SEX! Once you put those three things together, a goofy image, pain and sex, that connection (ketchup and keys) will FOREVER be linked. This because pain and pleasure are THE motivators for human action and behavior. We WANT pleasure. We DON'T WANT pain. Every single thing we do is to move AWAY from the bad stuff and toward the good stuff. This is why ancient cavemen, when they were out strolling and heard a tiger growl, EVERY SINGLE THING about that situation was seared into their brains forever. It's also why when you have a NEAR sexual encounter with somebody, (especially if you don't have a lot of experience) that PERSON will FOREVER live in your memory. So, the money question, how can we USE this information? Easy. When you WANT people to do things, you can carefully leverage their own pain and pleasure points. Hit their pleasure buttons when they do what you want. Hit their pain buttons when they do what you DON'T want. And if you are subtle enough, they won't know ANYTHING. They'll just slowly start to behave the way YOU want them to. And it will be for THEIR reasons. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/people-training/

  18. There are a lot of expressions involving the stock market. One is "I got rich because I never bought at the bottom, and I always sold too soon." Meaning that if you try to "hit it out of the park" with every trade, you may risk losing everything. While taking short, consistent profits (never buy at the bottom, always sell too soon) over an extended period is a great way to make a fortune. Another one is to "sell down to the sleeping point." Which means if you can't sleep, you have too much risk. Risk is necessary, but if you can't sleep, you've got too much. Another famous line is, "the best time to buy is when there is blood in the streets." What does this mean? Well, consider there are two kinds of traders. Those who trade on emotion, and those who trade on logic. "Blood in the streets," means that everything is crashing, and everybody is panicking. Which means if you follow logic, you can find some VERY undervalued stocks. Why all of these stock market metaphors? The world economy is in a very dangerous transition phase. Kind of like when there is "blood on the streets." Not much is working like it used to be. And if you try and survive using methods that used to work, you may be in for a surprise. When the car was invented, a lot of horse and buggy companies went out of business. When the Internet was invented, a lot of newspapers vanished. Those that cling to the old ways don't usually do so well. But those that are mentally flexible, able to think "outside the box" and look for opportunities may find them EVERYWHERE. But you've got to not only actively seek them, but know HOW to take advantage of them. Nobody is going to show you how. The better you can "think," the more things you can learn (and learn on the fly, not sitting in a classroom) the more opportunities you'll see. After all, all those stone cold players who bought when there was blood in the streets made HUGE FORTUNES. Click Here To Learn More
