  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July05Post.mp4 One of the biggest myths of modern society is where money comes from. This is definitely a conspiracy theory that is true. Most people have a belief that money comes from the government. That it is a reward for good behavior. Like when we're kids, and we do our chores, and we get an allowance. On a much deeper level, this childhood view of the world is why most folks have such a hard time. We believe so long as we do what we are "supposed" to, we will get a reward. This is a common complaint among people whose lives aren't what they expected. I did what I was told. I did was I was supposed to. Where's my reward? This is an extremely painful idea to accept. That our society is run by folks who really don't care about us as much as they pretend to. But if you step back a bit and study history, this has always been the case. In fact, one historian has the opinion that ALL LEADERS from all societies had a very common way of getting money. And that was to TAKE IT. From their neighbors, and from their citizens. Everybody else has to work for a living. Meaning they have to DO THINGS that others voluntarily pay them for. These guys are the creators. The inventors. Edison is famous for being an inventor, but he was more of a businessman. Even the most famous, modern musicians, who are thought to be artists, creators of music and lyrics, are ALSO very shrewd businesspeople. Consider that in order to become a world famous rock star, you MUST have music skills, and you must have business skills. The starving artist, on the other hand, has artistic, creative skills, but not a lot of business skills. What does all of this have to do with anything? One is that we do live in a messed up society. And if you are lucky, and happen to have a job that pays well and is guaranteed in some way by dudes in charge, that's good. Count your lucky stars. But most people don't. But that's OK. You still have a brain. You will have your ancient instincts of creativity and money making. Why these two? Because every single thing that was ever invented was done for ONE reason. To get paid. Even way back in the day, before they knew how to fix longitude, the British Government knew they couldn't do it. So they created a big, fat, monetary reward. This is why everything around you was once an idea in somebody's brain. But the process that transformed it from a thought to a thing was a desire to GET PAID. All you need is two basic brain ingredients. One, an idea, any idea. Any idea that is BETTER than most of the junk out there. And two, your ancient desire. The desire that says: "If I can turn this thought into a thing, I can make a TON of money." Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July04Post.mp4 Most people are familiar with the plateau idea. If you've ever done any kind of exercise, you've experienced this. When you first start any kind of physical based sport or activity, the gains in the beginning come pretty quickly. You put in X amount of effort and get Y amount of gains. The plateau comes when you are putting in the same X amount of effort, but the gains, Y, are getting less and less. This can be maddening, especially if you have a particular target in mind. The time it will take to get to your target is a function of your daily gains, or Y. And when you start, you tend to underestimate how long it will get there. You want to lose fifty pounds, for example. Week one, you put in X amount of effort, and you lose two pounds. Cool, you think. Twenty five weeks, and I've hit my target. But after a month or two, you're STILL putting in the same weekly time and effort, but now you're only losing ONE pound per week. This means your goal is now further out in the future. This is the plateau that everybody has problems with. There are plenty of strategies and mental techniques to deal with this. This type of idea shows up pretty much everywhere. Health, money, relationships, career, etc. Put in a little effort, get some results. Based on the efforts and the results, we extrapolate. Only to later find out we underestimated the time it is going to take. This is even a function of natural selection and evolution. They call it "punctuated equilibrium." A species will unchanged for a LONG time. Then something drastic will happen, and they'll go through tons of changes in a very short time. This is also what happens when you learn to "love the plateau" as many recommend. Instead of focusing on the end point, just learn to love the journey. And allow those sudden shifts described by "punctuated equilibrium" to show up whenever they show up. This is a fine strategy. A very useful, life long, self development strategy for nearly every area of life. Why, "nearly"? There's one area where this doesn't hold true. And that is in the realm of human inventions. These are a function of human creativity. We look out into the world, and see a bunch of stuff. We imagine better stuff, and make it happen. Every time anybody does this, the "stuff" out there changes. This means the stuff that exists in the world, the stuff that was first an idea in somebody's brain, doesn't follow the "punctuated equilibrium" theory. It's more like a continuously increasing EXPLOSION of stuff. What is an economic description of stuff? Wealth. What do you GET when continue to create more and more wealth? Money. A TON of money. This is what your brain is capable of. Every single day, there is more "stuff" out there to use as raw material. To CREATE better things. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun05Post.mp4 Once I was in Las Vegas, playing blackjack. It was in the early morning, and my buddies and I had just arrived. It was three of us and one other guy. We are all in a good mood, at the beginning of our trip. I don't remember exactly what had happened, but everybody noticed it. Even when we were all talking and laughing, the dealer made a mistake. And even though NONE of us were looking directly at the dealer, we all noticed the mistake. But it was a kind of mistake that if the dealer caught it BEFORE he dealt the next card, he could have recovered. But if he dealt one more card, we all would have won by default. The way the energy changed was pretty amazing. There we were, chattering and laughing and telling stories and then BAM! We all froze. But NOBODY looked directly at the dealer. We ALL had the EXACT same idea in our brain. "Don't say anything, pretend nothing is wrong, but watch him carefully and hope he makes a mistake." The dealer NOTICED the sudden shift in energy at the table. And I think that's what caused him to make a mistake and deal another card. As soon as he did, we all resumed our natural, happy, conversational state. Then he realized his mistake and paid us. This is only ONE example of how much we are always perceiving. The main reason we noticed this was MONEY was on the line. It's kind of like when you're walking down the street, and you see some green paper out of the corner of your eye. Like your subconscious jumps up and says, "HEY! Look over there!" Your train of thought is suddenly yanked off the tracks, and now you've got some money. This is essentially what happened at the blackjack table. Only it happened to all of us. And not for MONEY, but for a MONEY OPPORTUNITY. This is how our brain works. We have our brain, we have plenty of filters, then we have TONS of data hitting our senses. But most of us don't see ANY of that data, unless there is a BLATANT reason. Like money, or somebody calls our name, or there is suddenly a gorgeous woman with huge boobs smiling right at us. But guess what? You can learn how to perceive ALL that data that is hitting you. For example, we'll all suddenly shift our attention if a sexy person is looking right at us. That is very blatant. But what about ALL the people sending very subtle signs that they would like to get to know us? How many of these do you miss, every single day? Find Out: https://mindpersuasion.com/intuition/

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May28Post.mp4 Everything is made of energy. Even particles, according to particle physics, are actually tightly packed energy waves. We humans can be described as "energy pumps." We need to consume at least 2000 calories per day. We eat organic matter, and when we digest it, we get the energy from the chemical bonds. We can be called "pumps" because we consume energy, and expend waste. But our waste goes back into the Earth, and the cycle continues. Bees and flowers have an overlapping, selfish relationship. The bees think they are getting free nectar. Free energy. But the flowers think they are getting free help cross pollinating. They evolved together, to help each other out. They call this "co-evolution." It's essentially how all animals became domesticated. We didn't go out, capture animals and then train them. The process of domestication takes plenty of generations. We find the smartest, most docile, most human-liking animals among the entire herd. Then each generation, we keep picking the smartest and most docile animals to breed. This is kind of a human-driven co-evolution. Other co-evolution happens between fruit trees and primates. We primates evolve a sense of color, and a affinity for the sweet taste of the fruit. Those fruit trees evolved sweet and colorful fruit around the seeds. Pretty much the same relationship between bees and flowers. The bees get the sweet stuff, and in turn they help the flowers reproduce. Primates eat the sweet fruit, and poop out the seeds, and help the tree reproduce. You'll find this kind of overlapping, co-evolved behavior among plenty of different species. Mostly between insects and plants. Since there a kajillion different kinds of each. But this also happens between humans and humans. Even among the same tribe. The dudes all compete to see who can kill the biggest animal. Their selfish reward is social validation. The people giving the social validation are getting the benefit of all the calories from the slain beast. Nobody thinks about this. It just comes naturally. An overlapping instinct that works perfectly to keep the tribe healthy. This is EXACTLY what Adam Smith described in his book, "The Wealth Of Nations." People don't work hard to produce stuff because they care about us. Or because it's part of some goofy "social contract." People work hard to make stuff because they want our money. And we happily give them our money in exchange for the stuff. Very much like ancient people "gave" social validation in exchange for plenty of delicious protein. This "money-instinct" rests directly on top of this mutually selfish instinct. The kind that exists between ALL KINDS of living creatures. This means money is a natural part of a healthy society. A natural part of life. Embrace this ancient instinct, and get in the game. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-magnet/
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May26Post.mp4 There are many ways to differentiate us human animals from the rest of the animals. One is that animals all play the zero sum game. Evolution is driven by natural selection. Natural selection is accurately described as "survival of the fittest." You've got a jungle that can support 100 monkeys. Every generation, 120 monkeys are born. Those that can hack it in monkey jungle get to survive. Those that don't, well... Sucks to be them. This is a zero sum game. For one monkey to get more bananas, another monkey has to get less bananas. There's no magic banana tree that grows an infinite amount of bananas. And monkey's aren't really known for their fairness and their ideas of democracy. Whoever finds and gets the bananas gets to live. Those who snooze, go extinct. So, what makes us humans different? What do we have that makes everything different? The first major human, well pre-human, breakthrough came when we discovered fire. Energy that we could use OUTSIDE of our bodies. Like old school capitalists, we used this energy, outside of our body, to get MORE energy, outside of our body. Use "wealth" to get more "wealth." How? We used fire to hunt. This required planning, strategizing, abstract thinking, and quarterback like communication. You guys go up there and light the fire. You guys go hide behind the bushes over there. When the animals come by, running away from the fire, you guys bash them in the head. Before fire, we had to use the energy INSIDE of our bodies. Namely, chasing animals until we could catch them. But once we figured out how to use energy OUTSIDE of our bodies? Use energy (fire) to get energy (food). This made our brains triple in size over a couple million years. The next level was even better. Plant a bunch of seeds in the ground, and wait around for them to grow. Especially grain. Why grain? That was energy you could STORE. Real wealth. The very next invention, fast on the heels of stored grain was MONEY. And with money came accounting. And mathematics and writing and everything else. But today, many people play the zero sum game with money. They get some, we don't. But the BEST way to get money is NON zero sum. You make something that DIDN'T exist before. And somebody gives you money for THAT. A happy, voluntary, mutually beneficial exchange. All that is GOOD in the world came from these NON zero sum exchanges. Tune your mind to this idea, and get paid like crazy. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-magnet/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May25Post.mp4 There are plenty of ways to view the world. There are plenty of ways to view ourselves with respect to the world. It's easy to see oppression, lack, scarcity, anger, etc. This is easy. This is the default setting. Why is this? One reason is most of us today are stuck in the childhood mindset. Way back in the day, before we invented large cities, but when we still had are same mind body systems, we had to hunt. This meant getting our needs met was very difficult. Very dangerous. Everybody had to do their part. And do so as soon as possible. Any ancient tribes of people who had a bunch of slackers wouldn't last long. Everybody was forced to grow up as quickly as possible. Children receive from adults. From a purely economic standpoint, they consume more than they produce. But eventually they need to grow up. And produce more than they consume. In fact, whoever produced the MOST, in excess of what they consumed, had the most status. The guys who consistently killed the biggest animals. Since they couldn't eat a woolly mammoth on their own, they had to share. They didn't share because they were nice guys. Or that it was some goofy sounding "social contract." The shared because of the social validation they got. That mad respect and admiration from their tribal members. This very basic, and ancient economic system motivated EVERYBODY, for their own selfish reasons, to be the MOST productive. Those who were the most productive got the most rewards. The aforementioned social status, validation and sex. This was an INTERNAL driving force that motivated kids to WANT to grow up. So they could get out there and GET SOME. Today, it's like we're living in opposite land. Where most of the world is still in the childhood mindset. Of waiting for somebody else to GIVE THEM something. This, of course is a problem. It's also why every single society has eventually collapsed. The reasons for this are WAY too complex to get into here. But consider this idea. That modern financial and economic trade is built ON TOP OF our ancient instinct. We do great things, and we get great rewards. In ancient times, this was killing big animals and getting mad social status and sex. In modern times, this is providing REAL VALUE to REAL PEOPLE. And do you get in exchange? Money. Happily given to YOU for your accomplishments. Your achievements. Your creations. This instinct lives in EVERYBODY. You, the creator, and all your customers, the happy payers of money. Wake up the your inner money maker, and get some. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-magnet/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May24Post.mp4 After the Industrial Revolution, the guys running things had a problem. There were all kinds of factories being built. People from the boonies were flocking to the cities. Henry Ford was one of these guys. Bored on the farm, he went to the city to find work. This is essentially how all cities are built. A couple of people start building and selling stuff to each other. The more people there are, the more opportunities they are. A historian drew an interesting parallel between this phenomenon and the formation of stars. Once upon a time, there was only dust floating around the universe, after the big bang. Pretty soon gravity started pulling these clouds of dust closer and closer. This is how stars and solar systems were formed. Civilizations are kind of built the same way. You start off with a bunch of nomads out all wondering around. Somebody settles down and stars growing stuff. Others come in and set up other endeavors. This creates a kind of "gravity" that pulls others closer and closer in. Pretty soon you got a big city. Eventually, these collapse, just like stars will eventually supernova. This happened throughout history. Until the Industrial Revolution. Now they had WAY more people. Way more endeavors. This kind of presented a problem. If you have a slow trickle of people, over a few hundred years, coming into a slowly growing city, that's OK. The people find people who'll train them. But the Industrial Revolution needed people trained FAR quicker and in FAR greater number than ever before. This is when mass education was created. One way to describe "schools" are as factories that produce factory workers. Basic math, English, etc. That is essentially what schools are today. They teach you the very basics. For the longest time, that was enough. Go through the factor worker factory, and find your place. Today, the world is changing VERY rapidly. Those who don't notice, or who don't WANT to notice, will get left behind. Today, you've to take control of your brain. You've got to take control of your skills and your choices. Nobody is going to do that for you. Luckily, we all come pre-programmed with some basic skills. See, this is how life was BEFORE the Industrial Revolution. Like Henry Ford, when you decided to head off to the city, you had to make your own choices. Make your own decisions. Take responsibility for learning enough to make a living. This is the way it has ALWAYS been. Which means all you need to do is re-discover how. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-magnet/

  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May23Post.mp4 It's a common belief that money is evil, or bad. Or perhaps not money itself, but the "love" of money. Is this really true? It all depends on how you GET money. Suppose you owned a bread shop. And you absolutely LOVED it when people came into your shop and paid you for some bread. You loved that they were HAPPY when they bought some bread. You loved that you were HAPPY when you received some cash. You loved thinking about bread. You loved creatively coming up with new recipes for bread. And more than anything, you loved selling bread. You loved your reputation in town for making the BEST bread ever. And beneath all this was your LOVE of money. You love money because it keeps your family safe. You love money because it comes from happy customers. You love money because it is your money making business that gets you respect. When people you around town, they nod and say hi. They like you. They appreciate you. They ENJOY paying you. And sometimes you lay awake a night. Dreaming about MORE money. How you might pay for your kids' educations at the BEST schools. How you might even move to a bigger house, in a better neighborhood. How you might surprise your spouse with a car for their birthday. And suppose you accepted that the ONLY WAY to get more money was to make BETTER bread. Better bread that people would ENJOY more. Better bread that would make you even MORE famous. In this context, is the love of money, "evil?" Absolutely not. In this context, the LOVE of money drives you to better SERVE your fellow citizens. In this context, your LOVE of money FORCES you to think about what your customers might want. Because if you FIRST satisfy your customers, only THEN can you get more money. And all the wonderful things money can buy. Of course today, this situation is very, very rare. We live in a very corrupt system. Where many people who are rich got that way because they are ruthless, sociopathic, and play the ZERO SUM game. They win, somebody else loses. But in the bread scenario, it is NOT a zero sum game. The more money YOU get, the better bread THEY get. Once upon a time, we had nothing. Dirt, rocks, and some animals we had to chase and kill. But once we invented money, the type and amount of stuff EXPLODED. And nearly all of it was just like the bread example. People invented stuff so they could get paid. Paid by happy people. Since this type of HAPPY money exchanged has existed since the dawn of time, and in EVERY society, this MUST MEAN this is an instinct. Awaken yours, and get paid.

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May22Post.mp4 Self sabotage is very common. Unfortunately, most self sabotage is specific. We all have unique childhoods, and experiences with going after what we want. You might have had a mean, red-headed teacher who always picked on you. She may have said you were worthless. That you didn't deserve to be happy. So here you are, twenty years later, about to go on the job interview of your life. But the lady who is interviewing you is another red-head. And you need to convince her that you are worth the salary you are asking. You get nervous, her red hair reminds you, subconsciously, of all the mean things your teacher said. Part of you wants the job. Part of you still feels you don't deserve the job. This kind of self sabotage is VERY specific. But the structure is very general. You want something on one level. But you don't feel worthy on another level. The most common way this shows up is with money. We find money on the street, it's fantastic. But trying to convince somebody to give you money, in exchange for your services, is very, very difficult. This is why people love things like "law of attraction" and other metaphysical ways to get money. You think, believe, wish, chant, etc. "The Universe" somehow hears you and delivers you some money. No work needed on your part! Unfortunately, this doesn't work. Money has to come form somebody. A person has to pay you. Either that, or you've got to find it, inherit it, or steal it. This is where self sabotage is the absolute strongest. That's because negative money beliefs were formed when we were very, very young. Before we even knew what money was. This is validated by social proof. All the other kids at elementary school. All coming from the same type of money childhood. Tons of wants, and few of them satisfied. Even before you are old enough to get a job, you've got plenty of negative money beliefs. At the same time, money is the absolute greatest thing ever invented. Without money, we'd be reduced to barter. This would significantly DECREASE the amount of economic activity. Which is why most people a live of scarcity. Near poverty. All the money in the world, but inner limitations. Limitations based on negative beliefs about money. Until you get rid of those, you'll be stuck in the same trap everybody else is stuck in. Waiting to find or be given money. Screw that! There are ALWAYS people figuring out ways to make a killing. Get rid of negative money beliefs, and join them.

  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb03Post.mp4 Motivation is a dangerous thing. It's also a very misunderstood concept. Motivation is the biggest associated ingredient to any kind of success. If you want more money, you need to learn more skills. In order to learn more skills, you need motivation. If you want better health, you need to exercise. In order to exercise, you need motivation. If you want a better relationship, you need to get out there and meet people. To get out there and meet people, you need motivation. This is one reason why decent motivational speakers can easily make millions. Because it's something everybody wants. But the motivation you get from motivational speakers is like candy. It feels fantastic when you are consuming it. When the words are coming out of the speaker's mouth. When everybody is jumping around and screaming and hollering. But a couple hours after it's all over? You're back to where you are started. This is why good motivational speakers make tons of money. You can listen to the same person over and over again. But never really make much progress on those things you need motivation for. You still want more money, a better body, and better relationships. Something is missing from this picture. If motivation was ALL you needed, AND it was possible to be permanently motivated from motivational speakers, then EVERYBODY who ever went to a Tony Robbins seminar would be rich with a six pack and hanging out with super models. But they aren't. In fact, it is a VERY COMMON scene among motivational speakers to see the same types over and over. Some folks spend tens, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars seeing the SAME motivational speakers over and over and over. From a purely objective, scientific standpoint, motivational speakers are not really "motivating" us. Sure, they're making us feel really good. But unless you've got more money, better health, better relationships as a result, they must be doing something else. Here's something else to think about. Nobody NEEDED to be motivated until the last couple hundred years or so. Ancient hunter gathers didn't need to be motivated. At least not by a bunch of imaginary ideas or affirmations or weird chants. They were motivated by their external environment. Back then, if you didn't kill, you didn't eat. It seems that the more successful we are collectively, the EASIER it is to fall behind individually. This makes sense. What's the answer? Consider to ditch the idea of motivation. Instead, consider building MOMENTUM. Of doing something small today. Super easy. Then do the same thing tomorrow. Pretty soon, you'll have a habit. Habits are easy to maintain. Especially if you are practicing something that will enhance all areas of your life. This will create something few people experience. You'll look behind you, and see what you've done. You'll look out ahead of you, and see where you're going. This feeling of forward MOMENTUM will be self sustaining. That's when life feels good.

  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan17Post.mp4 Recently, or perhaps not so recently, there have been a lot of "concern" with AI. That one day soon, robots will take over. Of course, this is nothing new. One of the episodes of the Twilight Zone was some poor guy who put himself out of a job by too much automation. Every since the Industrial Revolution, people have been worried about being replaced by robots. So, perhaps the latest fears of super intelligent AI somehow deciding we humans are obsolete is just another version of that. But consider that humans have something AI will never have. This is easy to understand from an evolutionary perspective. Evolution is based on natural selection. Natural selection is essentially a competition. A fight between and among species, sometimes called "survival of the fittest." But even that label is a bit too understated. Whoever can survive gets to live. Whoever loses, loses. A common misunderstanding is that evolution has some specific goal it is pointing toward. Something "better" or more efficient. It's nice to think that, but it might not be true. The environment evolves naturally. Sometimes heavily influenced by the living creatures, sometimes not. Whoever can "keep up," gets to stay alive. Whoever doesn't, doesn't. What does "keep up" mean, exactly? Getting enough food to stay alive. Having enough sex and making enough copies. Sounds simple, right? Get enough to eat, and get laid a few times? But at the same time, 99% of all living things eventually didn't make the cut. They got eliminated. Thanks for playing. They couldn't get enough to eat, and couldn't have enough sex. One way to think about the slowly evolving environment, and all the living creatures trying desperately to keep us, is with the joke about the two guys hiking who see a bear. Two guys see a bear. One guy starts putting on his running shoes. Other guys says he's crazy since he can't outrun a bear. First guy says I don't need to outrun the bear, I just need to outrun you. This is natural selection in a nutshell. This is also survival within any society, based on any metric, in nutshell. This is why many people like the idea of magic and free stuff. Because at its heart, all life is essentially a competition. People don't like to compete. People like guaranteed incomes and participation trophies. What does this mean, for you, Dear Reader? Embrace the competition. Embrace your inner drive. Your human spirit. To get in the game. Not to play, not to have fun, but to win. Dominate: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan15Post.mp4 Ben Franklin famously said that only two things are certain: Death and taxes. Maybe he was kidding, maybe it was a deep insight into human nature. There are, of course, a lot more things about life that are certain. Yes, we all die. But what about taxes? If you study what they call, "Big History," which is essentially the history of all societies, most have some kind of taxation. But they also have plenty of other similarities. One is they all figured out how to grow a bunch of food in many, many different environments. Another is they've all had a form of prostitution. Another is they are all more or less organized into a hierarchy. And most had some systemized kind of writing. So it would seem that there is a lot more to life that is certain that only paying taxes and looking forward to the long dirt nap. Another thing you'll find in every society since the dawn of time is a kind of money. One way to think about this is that if you can find the very same behavior no matter where you look, it's got to be an instinct. We all get hungry and eat. We all get thirsty and drink. We all get horny and TRY our best to have sex. We all like the idea of not working compared to working. If you had a time travel, invisible, flying observation room, it would be very hard to find too many people who were in a fantastic mood on Monday morning. You'd also be hard pressed to find people that were depressed on Friday afternoon. Sad they were going to be away from their boss for a couple days. Everybody dreams about the same things, more or less. Sex with supermodels. Dream romances with dream partners. Having a huge house in a fantastic location. Being able to eat the most delicious food. NEVER having to pay taxes. These all represent the ideal situation with respect to our instincts. Enjoying all the positives, without having to put up with the negatives. Central to all of this is the idea of money. Before large societies, back when we were hunters, there was no money. Once they invented large societies, there was money. Money fulfilled a need. That is to satisfy and enhance trade between people with different skills. But it also opened up MASSIVE possibilities. See, hunters couldn't ever rest. No animal they killed, or fish they caught would feed them for every long. But once money was invented, this allowed people to get as much money as they could. The more of this magic stuff you could get, the LESS you had to work. Money is the sum total of ALL our instincts. Understand money, understand everything.

  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan14Post.mp4 In many movies and stories, there is sometimes an alpha contest. A bunch of people will be stranded on an island, or in an elevator, or somewhere. And they always have some of contest between guys about who gets to be in charge. This makes for entertaining fiction. Because it's partly true. But the best "leaders" are not generally the people who WANT to be leaders. The best leaders are the people who are chosen by others. Everybody looks at them and says, "dude, you need to take charge, nobody else knows what to do..." And the reluctant leader takes charge, and figures everything out. But some leaders, who want to be leaders, are very, very clever. Others, not so much. Way back when Reagan was shot, Alexander Haig made waves by immediately claiming he was in charge. When in reality, he was third or fourth in the chain of command. These are the kinds of guys who people tend to avoid. They kind that are always looking for a reason to boss people around. The kind of people who walk up to you, look over your shoulder and try to tell you a better way to do what you are doing. These people exist on all levels. Small offices, big corporations and even large countries. One of the most powerful ways to be in control is to first convince people that you aren't in control. Or that you don't even exist. This is that famous quote about the devil. That the biggest trick he ever pulled was to convince everybody he doesn't exist. This metaphor rings true because it is EXACTLY how people operate. The most power hungry people of all time. They know that if you make it OBVIOUS you want to be in charge, you've got to have a reason to be in charge. Which means as soon as somebody else comes up with a better reason, then THEY get to be in charge. But the people who REALLY crave power know that the best power is always HIDDEN. And if you go back into any society, since the dawn of time, this type of power has always involved money of some sort. Controlling the money of any society is like meta control over everybody else. This is why nearly all governments since the dawn of time have controlled the money supply. The ideal situation is for the government to control the money, so ordinary people won't think too much about it. The thing is, money existed BEFORE governments were invented. Money existed long before societies were even invented. There's evidence of very basic forms of money being used 100,000 years ago. Which an ONLY mean that money is a human instinct. Not an invention by power hungry goofs looking over your shoulder trying to tell you what to do. Understand money, understand everything. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan13Post.mp4 One of my favorite quotes comes from a guy named Willie Sutton. Not really a quote, more of an answer to a question. Sutton was a bank robber. He robbed a bunch of banks, was caught and put in prison a bunch of times. But he kept escaping, and he kept robbing banks. So a reporter asked him: "Mr. Sutton, why do you rob banks?" His answer was very simple. "Because that's where the money is." Of course, this was a clever reframe. The intention of the question was why do you rob banks as a living. Compared to being a plumber or something. But Sutton purposely, cleverly and humorously reframed the question. Like, why do you rob banks, instead of robbing movie theaters or ice cream shops. The question of money, and where it is, where it comes from is not an easy question to answer. On the other hand, it is a very easy question to answer. From a political, economic, view, money comes from the government. Or the banks that work for the government. This is a very dangerous idea. Because built into the idea, that money comes from the government, is that government gets to choose who gets the money and who doesn't. This sounds dangerously similar to being a kid, and thinking that money comes from your parents. And if you behave, and follow the rules set by your parents, they'll give you an allowance. The amount is based on what they decide to give you. Many people today have this basic idea about money and society. That the role of government is to hand out money to people like parents hand out money to kids. Make no mistake, plenty of people make plenty of money plenty of different ways using this "government hands out money" idea. And if you can get some, then get some. But consider having a bit of money flexibility. Kind of like Willie Sutton had answering flexibility. No, you shouldn't rob banks. Just imagine some other ways people can get money. For example, little kids trade things with each other. And when little kids are trading things like cards, they instinctively trade for two different kinds of cards. The cards they want, and will keep. The cards they know others will want. And guess what? Whenever they accept a card they know others will want, and hang onto it, specifically to trade, that is a form of money. Technically, it's called commodity money. How do we know it's an instinct? Because every time you stick people together, and they start trading stuff, they'll instinctively, collectively, and unconsciously come up with a form of commodity money. This means that the stuff government banks print, and hand out as money, only works because of our more ancient, more powerful, inner money instinct. Master this, and master money.

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan11Post.mp4 Thoreau wrote that most men live lives of quiet desperation. What does this mean, exactly? Most people want things they'll never get. They are desperate for things they don't have. Yet they never do much about it. They are quiet, and they are desperate. Most people are content to do what they are told. Most people's dreams of fame and riches involve somebody else doing most of the work. Young people who want to become actors dream of being discovered. Of doing nothing more than walking down the street, and being "noticed." This is based on our common idea that we are special somehow. That all we need is for somebody else, somebody who has more money, more connections, more resources, to find us. And notice our specialness. And reward us for our specialness. This is a very lazy way of thinking. It's also they way those that actually have power, and money, and connections, WANT us to think. Just understanding this only makes it worse. Now you've got TWO ideas that are a recipe for mediocrity and poverty. One is to wait around for SOMEBODY ELSE to make it happen. The other is to BLAME all those other people for any lack. Both of these thoughts are VERY EASY to think. It's why nearly EVERYBODY has them to some degree. Which is kind of a messed up paradox. That EVERYBODY believes they are special. And nobody can really define, specifically, WHY they are special. This is actually a very valuable instinct. To BELIEVE that you are special. But like all our other instincts, what worked before doesn't work so well today. How did our, "I'm special" instinct work in the past? It was a tool of MOTIVATION. It drove us to DO THINGS that demonstrated our specialness. Every day was a COMPETITION to see who could DO THINGS that were better than everybody else. Now we've all been brainwashed into thinking all we need do is SHOW UP. That merely by EXISTING, we are supposed to merely RECEIVE a bunch of cool stuff. But that is a lie. Unless you are still a kid, living a home, nobody is going to GIVE YOU anything. Does this mean you need to be evil, vicious and start TAKING things from people? This common MISCONCEPTION is the third idea keeping people trapped inside their bubble of safety and mediocrity. One, we think by being special will get us free stuff. Two, if we don't get free stuff, it's somebody else's fault. Three, if we try and get more than we have, we are being bad or wrong or evil. All three of these are lies, cons, and scams. But mostly WE are scamming OURSELVES. The truth is very freeing. That if you get in the game, instead of waiting on the sidelines, it's much more natural to get whatever you want.

  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan10Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, Mother Nature had a decision to make. Our brains were getting really big, really quickly. Too big to be born close to fully formed, like most other mammals. So She had two choices. Make female hips much wider, or make us born much earlier. Since wider hips would have forced us back down on all fours, She, Mother Nature, chose the second option. Of having us born well before we were done "cooking." This is why few of us have a lot of memories before five or so. This is why can't walk until about two. This is why kids can't talk fully until about three. Chomsky's theory of transformational grammar says we have a "language organ" in our brain. That it is a kind of a language structure. It needs to be calibrated, and that takes a couple years. This is why kids go from speaking gibberish to fully formed sentences pretty quickly. Once they get all their language structures calibrated, off they go. We might imagine we have a bunch of "structures" in our brains. And once these structures are calibrated, we use those calibrated structures as operational models. Religion may be another organ. All people, from all parts of the world, and from all eras usually believe in some kind of religion. And once that is set, it's pretty hard to change. This is exactly what the Jesuits said when they were trying to recapture market share for the Catholic Church after the protestant reformation. They found that converting adults was difficult. But converting new born kids was easy. Give me a child at birth, they said, and he'll be a soldier of Christ by seven. This isn't so much about Jesus, more about how programmable our young brains are. One way our brains are programmed is about money. Our beliefs about money, what it represents, etc. None of this is done on purpose. If you're six, and you're sitting around the dinner table, you'll naturally soak up the "money beliefs" from your parents. How? When they talk about things like vacations, chocolate ice cream, pizza, etc, they exhibit "happy" energy. When they talk about ANYTHING related to money, the "energy" is not happy. Work, bills, rent, etc. So even before any of us really know what money IS, we have been inadvertently trained that it's something everybody needs, everybody wants, but getting it is not only difficult, but extremely frustrating. And given that financial issues create the most anguish between otherwise happy couples, this adds another negative element to "money energy." Before we even really understand money, it's tainted with a whole slew of negative ideas. Unless you address these, and recalibrate them, getting money will be difficult. But after you recalibrate your money instinct? Money is a wonderful, natural, and necessary human invention. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  22. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan09Post.mp4 I love scientific and mathematical paradoxes. I have as long as I can remember. One of my favorites, even when I was a kid, was two different types of infinities. Imagine two lines, one above the other. The two endpoints line up. But the bottom line is flat, or parallel to the ground. While the line above it is tilted, and therefore longer, since the endpoints line up. Both lines have an infinite number of points. And each point on the top line can connect to a point on the bottom line. Which mean each line can be said to have same number of infinite points. But since the line on the bottom is shorter, its infinity is denser than the top infinity. Of once you start talking about different kinds of infinity (there are actually an infinite different kinds of infinity) your brain starts to get dizzy. This is really a function of our brains not being "calibrated" to understand stuff like this. I suppose if we were visited by aliens a few hundred thousand years ahead of us, they might think it was cute that we silly humans were impressed with simple things like infinity. But meanwhile, back in reality, we can consider two kinds of strangeness. There is the stuff that is purely magic. The stuff that is in super hero movies, and comic books. Then there is the stuff that only seems magic, but can be (allegedly) described by science. But then there is the stuff that can only be explained metaphorically. Take Napoleon Hill's insight, that "thoughts are things." On one hand, this makes perfect sense. A thought is a noun. I have a banana. I have a thought. One is a tangible noun. One is an intangible, or metaphorical noun. But intangible thoughts CAN become tangible things. For example, if you were thinking about a burrito. There you are, thinking about that, and it doesn't yet exist. At least not in your proximity. But if you get up and make one, it will exist. This is perfectly normal, but it's also kind of cool. Because we can do this with things that don't yet exist. Taking a thought and turning it into a never-before-seen thing is what inventors do. Every single non-natural thing that exists today, was once a pure fantasy in somebody brains. Once upon a time there were no tables, no microwaves, no roller skates, no burritos, nothing else. But even more magical is the potential energy stuff that makes this all possible. What kind of stuff is that? Money. If you have money, you can buy stuff that exists. Or you can hold onto it until somebody invents something better. And buy that. Money, inventions, and human brains. Normal, plain, everyday. And paradoxically magical at the same time.

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan08Post.mp4 When we are kids, it's very easy to believe in magic. Up until five or so, our brains are mostly in the theta state. Theta state is when we are dreaming, or having rich fantasies, near sleep. But as we grow up, we shift into mostly beta and alpha. Beta is more awake and alert. Alpha is kind of day dreaming. Most people only experience theta just as the slip into sleep. But we also have an ability to hallucinate. An anthropologist traveled the world, looking for as many similarities as he could find between as diverse cultures as he could find. And he found plenty. One commonality as the belief in "magic." Or superstition, or religion. A set of laws and ideas that have no direct proof, but are believed to be just as true as things like rocks and trees and buildings. Another common thing you'll find in all people, from all times, is the idea of money. Anthropologists find these shells very far away from any ocean. These ancient shells are found where ancient tribes used to live. They suspect they used them as money. This is a very natural idea that pops up in plenty of places. The idea of choosing something as a medium of exchange. If you have a banana, and you want a coconut, there are two ways of getting one. Find a guy who has a coconut and wants a banana. Or find a guy who wants a banana, and has something called "commodity money." This is anything you will accept from him, in exchange for your banana, that you suspect somebody else might want. This idea of commodity money is so natural, kids do this. Without EVER needing to be told. If you are 7 years old and are trading some Pokemon cards, for example, you'll have a sixth sense for which cards are in high demand. You'll trade for those, and hang onto them, so you can trade them for what you want, later. This deep and ancient instinct, of getting as MUCH of those "commodity money" things as possible is the SAME thing people do when they build wealth. When this is constrained to an honest society, this is where ALL inventions flow from. If you want as much of this commodity money as you can get, there is only one way to get some. Make, or help make, or find, or help find, things that OTHER people want. When EVERYBODY is doing this is, society grows and flourishing. This is your instinct. It is about as magic as you can get. And it is what will make you rich. Master this, and want for nothing. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan07Post.mp4 There's a fairly new branch of history called, "Big History." This is the history from the beginning, all the way up to now. (BTW, a friend once told me baseball was in the bible. What? Check it out, first book, he said. In the big inning...) And through Big History, you find plenty of similarities between societies. For one, they all start when somebody figures out how to grow food. We humans have done this in the strangest ways. All societies tend to have different classes of people. The rich and powerful up on top, poor people down at the bottom. All societies have some form of taxation. Sometimes they refer to this as tributes. Where they ruled have to pay "tribute" to those in charge. Sometimes this is called taxation, and it's allegedly used to help pay for stuff. But the structure is ALWAYS the same. The people on top collect the money. The people in the middle, and at the bottom, pay the money. The older a society gets, the more corruption grows. Even today, historians are unsure of the REAL intention behind the very first set of laws set down by Hammurabi. Were they to really help everybody, in a fair way? Or were they carefully created to make it easy for the wealthy elite to loophole their way up the power structure? Another common thing you'll find in societies, as they tend to decay, is that they debase, or devalue their currency. Talking about devaluing currency is usually a topic for conspiracy theorists. But since it happens in pretty much EVERY society, it's something we might want to pay attention to. Especially if you want to get more money than you have now. And since EVERYBODY always wants more money than they have now, understanding what money IS and how it works SHOULD be important. Yet nobody ever studies the structure of money. Nobody ever teaches the structure of money. But consider these very basic, very NON-CONSPIRACY theory ideas. One, every society that has ever popped up since the dawn of time has collapsed. As they collapse, they grow in corruption. They invariably devalue their monetary system. What, EXACTLY does this mean? Governments must live by the taxes they collect. If they raise taxes too much, people get angry. So ALL governments have figured out how to make MORE money, and not tell anybody. So they can keep it for themselves. They get MORE money than they collect in taxes. This is a very simple, very basic aspect of money. One that they don't advertise. But if you want to truly UNDERSTAND money, so you can get some, you need to know the good stuff, as well as the bad stuff. At least then you'll have a fighting chance.

  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan06Post.mp4 Whenever politicians talk, they are necessarily vague. Part of this is an aspect of covert hypnosis. Covert hypnosis involves being artfully vague. For hypnosis, it's almost always a one on one conversation. By knowing your target, you can leave specific vague blanks in the conversation. Your target will fill in the blanks with their own ideas and experiences, and will have a memory of being much more involved in the conversation. Even if you did all the talking. Since while you were talking, you put in a bunch of vague ideas. Since these were vague, your target will fill them with their own ideas. So even if they were just following along, they will essentially fill in the blanks with their own memories, experiences. If you are very clever, you can create a desire, motivation, compulsion, whatever you want. Which means even though you are doing all the talking, they will end up wanting to do something. But it will be based on their content, their memories, etc. So it will seem very much like their idea. This is why covert hypnosis is very useful for therapy, sales and seduction. Or even playing with friends. But politicians use the same technology, only they use it much differently. A rough example is when politicians say something like, "I'm in favor of education!" This sounds fantastic. If you are a teacher, you'll imagine he wants to spend more money on schools. If you're a parent of a struggling student, you'll imagine he wants to improve the education system somehow. If you are a big business, you'll imagine he wants to increase the skills of graduating students, so it will provide better workers to companies. But what if the politician is super evil? What if when he says, "I'm in favor of education," he's imagining re-education camps? He's imaging rounding up all the dissenters, putting them in forced labor camps where they will be "re-educated"? Kind of an extreme example, but it is based on vague language. One of the most common ways politicians (and pretty much all authorities) spread tons of disinformation is around money and economics. We are purposely kept in the dark about what money is, where it comes from, and what it represents. Henry Ford once said that one out of a million people will truly understand our monetary system. Funny how the people who are always spinning tales about money, and what it is, are the guys who are in power. If you understand money, a couple of things will happen. First, you'll have to ditch all kinds of magic money beliefs. Second, is once you see what it is, where it comes from, you'll figure out how to get some. As much as you want.
