  1. 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.

  2. 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/
  3. 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.

  4. 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/
  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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/
  8. 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.

  9. 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/
  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct11Post.mp4 They say that no man is an island. What does this mean, specifically? Nobody can exist on their own. Even you happen to have a fat enough bank account, and nice cabin far away from society, it is impossible to survive without other people. The stuff you buy has to be made by other people. The plumbing and electricity in your home has to be maintained by other people. Once a science writer tried, as an experiment, to make a toaster from scratch. Something that you can get for $20. Something so simple we take it for granted. But he wanted to see how complicated it would to build one. Entirely from scratch. Not buying the parts and putting them together. But creating the copper and the metal and the rubber and everything. It turned out that it was impossible. That's just the toaster. Making bread would be equally difficult. Grow the wheat, grind the wheat, mix it with water, put it in the oven. Of course, that oven would be need to be made. So even if you've got tons of money, getting what you want absolutely depends on other people. Sometimes this is as easy as handing over the cash, and them handing over whatever it is you want. Some bread, a toaster, etc. But what about things that can't be purchased? Like friendship or love? What about the money itself? Turns out this is where most people have the most trouble. The non-financial transactions. Making friends, creating relationships, and creating fat income streams. This isn't something they teach in school. Not even business school. Sure, they have all kinds of theories. But these theories are pretty vague. Especially when it comes to making friends and collecting romantic partners. The most common advice is very, very vague. Be yourself. Be more confident. Make a move. Easy for those who do those things easily. But what about the rest of us? What SPECIFICALLY do we do? What SPECIFICALLY do we say?

  14. Trading Fear For Money: https://mindpersuasion.com/trading-fear-for-money/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/satanic-day-trading https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct04Loop.mp4
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept29Post.mp4 A lot of things we humans do is to avoid facing tough issues. Eating, sex, TV, alcohol, drugs, etc. But unless we face these tough issues, they won't go away. For most of us, these aren't nearly as dramatic as on TV or in the movies. For most of us, these are like Mark Twain fears. Mark Twain famously said that 90% of his fears never happened. But unless you realize this, they will SEEM real. Which is the basis of one of those clever acronyms. F.E.A.R = "false enemies appearing real" The problem is unless you look at them in the eye, and PROVE to yourself they are false, they will act as if they are real. In every hero's journey story is what Joseph Campbell called the "belly of the whale experience." It's when Luke had to go into the cave in "Empire Strikes Back" to face Vader. It's when Gandalf the Gray faced the demon of hell that "shall not pass." And became Gandalf the White. It's when Hercules had to spend time in Hell before becoming a hero. It's also when Jonah was in the belly of a literal whale. And when Jesus was in the tomb for three days. Why are these "belly of the whale" experiences in nearly every hero's journey story? Because unless we face our FALSE FEARS inside, we'll never be able to face our real obstacles in the world. The obstacles in the real world are NEVER as big and scary as we THINK our inner fears and demons are. The ones that come in the middle of the night. Those pesky worries that invade an otherwise good night's sleep. Back in the times of hunters and gatherers, our deepest fears were VERY dangerous. They involved killing a huge animal that didn't want to be killed. For most ancient hunters, unless they literally FACED this fear, they would never get the good stuff in life. The mad social status. The crazy sex. The rock star treatment. All that was on the OTHER SIDE of facing their fears. Literally face to face with a much larger animal that very much DID NOT WANT to be killed. So every story they listened to around the campfire growing up had heroes who faced much bigger monsters. Dragons and demons and witches. If you never face your inner fears, the good things in life will always be out of reach. If you DO face your inner fears, the good things in life will be possible. Not easy, but possible. Mechanical even. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/seven-rules/
  16. Leverage Your Hallucination Instinct: https://mindpersuasion.com/hallucination-instinct/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept28Loop.mp4
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept19Post.mp4 There are two ways to respond to the world. This assumes that every single human will look out into the world and see it as being LESS than ideal. This must be true. Since all humans will always have a collection of unmet needs. Food, water, protection from the elements. Emotional, sexual, relationship needs. All these need to come from our environment. So at any given time, every single one of us looks out into the world. When we do so, we have a collection of things in our mind that we would like FROM the world. Some are conscious and simple. Some are unconscious and utterly complex. Some things can be satisfied quickly and easily. Some may take a lifetime, and we still may fall short. How we RESPOND to this common human experience will define our lives. When we are very young, we are helpless. We absolutely DEPEND on those around us who have much more power than us. Those who have many more resources than us. Up to a certain age, it is absolutely necessary to expect OTHER PEOPLE to satisfy our needs. But beyond a certain age, we need to start getting our own needs in our own way. You may even say this is the main PURPOSE of our life. To MAXIMIZE the stuff we can get FROM the world. By interacting WITH the world. Of course, part of this involves recognizing that the entire world is filled with other people. With every one having that same exact strategy. To interact WITH the world. To get their needs met FROM the world. It's common to think that SOME of our needs are still NOT our responsibility. Even as adults. How can this be? This would REQUIRE that some adults have the responsibility of TAKING CARE of those they will never meet. Non relatives. This is a dangerous idea. Of expecting your needs to be met by people you will never meet. It's one thing to put energy INTO the system, and expect energy OUT OF the system. Energy in being work, time, effort, etc. Energy out being money, goods, things we need for life, etc. This is healthy. This natural. Put in, and get out. As you go through life, you maximize the ratio. By making the things you PUT IN more and more valuable. And that you can do with less and less effort. But if you only expect to get things OUT, without also putting things IN, that creates problems. Because what if EVERYBODY on Earth decided to do that? The flip side is that you can figure out how to MAXIMIZE the ratio of inputs and outputs. Creating a much better life. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/seven-rules/

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July21Post.mp4 I was listening to this "pundit" the other day. He was talking about the "ideal" way to express your skills, or live a good life, or whatever "pundits" like to talk about. He said the ideal situation is where you have a set of skills that you ENJOY doing, that there is a market for, that will earn you some money AND will allow you to "do good." The first three are perfect. In fact, you really only need the first two. Skills that you enjoy doing and will make you money. The only caveat is that money is VOLUNTARILY being given to you. If you were a highly skilled bank robber, and enjoyed robbing banks, then that wouldn't really qualify. People sometimes feel a need to add on a "do good for society" whenever they talk about making money. As if there is something inherently WRONG with ONLY wanting to make money. That unless you are ALSO taking time to "do good" (whatever that means) then ONLY making money isn't enough. But when you do something and somebody VOLUNTARILY gives you money in exchange, that IS good. Imagine that you and a friend decided to trade $20 bills. Just for fun. How would that feel? Pretty silly. Now imagine trading a $20 for $21. That would feel better. That's why people LIKE to buy things. We WANT the thing we are getting MORE than the money we are paying. If you run the BEST bread shop in town, and people LOVE to come and buy your bread, then you ARE doing good. Selling bread that people enjoy buying IS doing good. You have a skill that you ENJOY. Baking the best bread around. That skill is getting you PAID. So long as that money is coming from happy people who EAGERLY hand over the cash in exchange for the bread, there's NOTHING ELSE you need for a happy life. At least from a making money, career, financial stability standpoint. And in a few happy relationships, and Bob's your uncle. This idea rests on top of ANCIENT instincts. Instincts that drove people to act selfishly. Not an evil selfish. But a very ancient and very MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL selfish. The mutually beneficial selfishness that makes bees and flowers team up. And dogs and humans. And humans and humans. The SAME mutually beneficial selfishness that makes people WANT to develop skills to sell things to people who EAGERLY pay them. This is a very DEEP and very ANCIENT human desire. Everybody has it. Everybody WANTS to express. Learn to leverage it, and you can motivate people to do anything.

  21. A very common, and very dangerous idea is that you need money to get girls. It's common because like most beliefs, it's easy to find proof. This is a function of confirmation bias. On the other hand, if you purposely tried to find evidence of guys with NO money who could easily get girls, you'd find it. One of the reasons this idea, that you need money to get girls, is dangerous is it can serve as a very HANDY excuse to stay on the sidelines. There you are, looking out across the room. You see TONS of sexy girls. But then that belief pops into your head. That you need money to get girls. And since you don't have any money, you stay on the sidelines. This is the PERFECT cover for the real reason. Which is that talking to girls causes a ton of anxiety in most NORMAL people. But most normal people also don't like to admit they are scared of doing SEEMINGLY normal things. Like talking to cute girls. Luckily, we can kill both false beliefs at once. First is to understand that money is only a EXTERNAL SIGNAL of something deeper. Or it least it CAN be. That something deeper is what women are REALLY attracted to. And that is raw ambition. The desire to BECOME something better than you are. Now, for most of history, when you combine this raw ambition with half a brain, you get a guy who gets out there and gets stuff done. This USUALLY involves making money somehow. That money, and all the signs of money, are really EXTERNAL pieces of evidence of a deeper characteristic. It's also why girls get together with guys who HAVE money, but get bored. Because in today's corrupt clown show economy, it's easy to make money WITHOUT having a sense of "old school" ambition. That's actually GOOD NEWS. Because you can cultivate that old school ambition. This requires you have a PLAN for your life. A REAL PLAN. Not a bunch of things you wish or hope will happen. Having a REAL PLAN based on REAL AMBITION will trigger those ancient desire instincts. But you have to be willing to EXPRESS that ambition. This is EASY. But it requires you understand part two of this strategy. That you don't talk to girls ONLY to get their number. And you don't ONLY talk to cute girls. NOR do you ONLY talk to girls. You talk to EVERYBODY. Practice chit chat. Eventually somebody will ask what you do. And no matter WHAT your job is, even if you don't have a job, when you express your ambition correctly, they will remember you. Why? Because so few people HAVE ambition today. This will help you cultivate and develop a REAL reputation. Which will make you INSANELY attractive. To EVERYBODY. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/girls-like-you/
  22. Most people absolutely hate getting fat. Nobody ever tries to get fat. Except maybe a few actors who need to get into character. Once, Milton Erickon had a patient who was convinced she couldn't change her weight. Milton told her to purposely gain weight. She thought he was crazy, but she did any way. Through his hypnotic genius, he convinced her that losing weight wasn't really that much different than gaining weight. This, of course, isn't true for most people. But Milton recognized her weight problem was tied to feeling an absolute lack of control over ANY part of her body. For that particular patient, he recognized that once she proved to herself that she could gain weight on purpose, losing weight on purpose would be the next logical step. This was one of the reasons why Erickson was such a genius. He could talk to somebody and know the PRECISE detail of their unique problem. And give them a quick, custom made solution, all wrapped up in a messed up story. But when you think about gaining and losing weight in general, it's really a BEAUTIFUL system. It's kind of hard to see that now, but think about ancient humans. Whenever we saw food, we ate as much as we could. And our bodies would naturally store the extra energy. The more energy we had stored in the tank, the longer we could go without needing to fill up again. This is very much like a family on a long road trip. The bigger the tank, the more energy they can store. Whenever they see a gas station, they stop and fill up. In our natural, ancient habitat, adding to our energy stores is the same as spending from our energy stores. We GAIN fat just as easily as we BURN fat. Of course, this is based on a lot of other circumstances that aren't very common today. The food was much more natural. And we were much more active. But this metaphor, of finding, storing and using energy, can be found everywhere. The entire EXPLOSION in population after the Industrial Revolution was MAINLY because we finally figured out HOW to use fossil fuels. Which represented a MASSIVE AMOUNT of energy. Another HUGE discovery in human history was the use of fire. Another way to get MASSIVE energy out of wood and other burnable material. But the most METAPHYSICAL form of energy is money. You can make, it you can store it, you can spend it. The more you have, the longer you can go without needing more. This is the main DRIVING FORCE behind all human inventions. The more you get in THAT game, the more you can fulfil your human purpose. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  23. Natural selection is a very powerful idea. It's similar to split testing. If you tried out different ad campaigns in different zip codes, for example. Suppose you had eight different zip codes. And you had eight slightly different adverts for each zip code. You could easily see which ad was best, based on the sales you got. You wouldn't even need to know much about psychology. Once you found the best one, out of the eight, you could just make variations on that one. Or imagine if you opened a sandwich shop. You could spend tons of money on market research. Hire an expensive consulting firm to go door to door and see which kind of sandwiches people eat. Or you could just sell a bunch of different sandwiches, and see which ones sold the most. Keep selling more of those. Keep selling less of the others. When this happens in nature, it's spontaneous and organic. That's why it's called "natural selection." But you'll see this same strategy EVERYWHERE. Because it's so effective. Consider a venture capitalist. He's got a couple hundred million to invest. Does he need to be able to understand the deep undercurrents of the economy, or the future political winds? Not really. He just needs to invest a couple million in twenty or thirty different companies. Thirty companies times two million is sixty million dollars. If ONE company hits it big, and he sells it for 100 million (which is VERY common) he makes his money back. This is not only a very effective strategy, but it's also applicable in pretty much anywhere you want. Take a guy who wants to become more seductive. So long as he's willing to get out there and apply this strategy, he'll keep getting better. How, specifically does he apply it? The same way as the advertising campaign. Try a bunch of DIFFERENT strategies and choose the one that works best. Then try another set of winning strategies, which are variations on the previous winning strategy. The more you apply this strategy, the better you get. It also works in sales. And in business. It is also how we NATURALLY learn. The more we get POSITIVE feedback, the more we'll REMEMBER what worked. This is the natural way we humans develop better and better skills. When you apply this to making money, it's a perfect match. Whatever your job is, whatever job you want, whatever business you want to start, do SOMETHING. Every time you do SOMETHING, you'll get valuable feedback. And if you point your successive attempts toward more money, you'll GET more money. But only if you get rid of limiting money beliefs. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  24. Everybody loves buying stuff. Especially something you've wanted for a while. When I got my first job in high school, I wanted to build a stereo system. So each paycheck I bought one more component. (This was WAY back in the day before MP3 players.) Amp/tuner, turntable, cassette deck, equalizer, big speakers. Each Friday I looked forward to getting my check, depositing it and going to the stereo store. And luckily enough, my first job was a lot of fun. Me and a bunch of other high school and college kids working at a movie theater. All the bosses were in college, everybody else was in high school or college. The big boss was never around. So it was essentially a non-stop party. Making money was fun, and spending money was fun. This is how it CAN be. It's how it SHOULD be. Every time you make money, you are combining your unique skills and experiences in a way that other people appreciate. You do something, and other people pay you. They like GIVING you the money, because they like what you GAVE them in exchange. This is how societies have functioned ever since they invented agriculture. This is WHY people gravitate to large cities. For example, Henry Ford left the farm and went to the city because living on the farm was so BORING. By the time he was a young adult, he'd already applied his skills as much as he could. Taking apart people's watches and putting them back together. Big cities have more people. More people have more needs. More needs require more skills to satisfy those needs. Satisfying more needs creates more economic activity. Which attracts more people. Of course, this is nice in theory. Reality is much different. Because for many people, making money is difficult. Just thinking about it creates a TON of anxiety. Because making money also comes with a ton of limiting beliefs. And it turns out that negative money beliefs aren't so simple. They are passed down subconsciously and organically. Often for generations. But with a little mental work, you can get rid of them. And once you eliminate negative money beliefs, making money will be the way it should be. An essential function of human nature. The more you express your natural skills and gifts, the more money you'll make. And the more people will appreciate your contributions.

  25. I read an interesting article the other day. About strange ways to make money. For example, you can make $400 a month selling plasma. Or, if you qualify, (which is hard according to the article) you can make a few grand a month selling your sperm. Another goofy article talked about a woman who makes $40K a year being a professional "cuddler." Kind of a strange job, but it doesn't seem to take much. Except being able to cuddle strangers all day. If you look, you can find plenty of ways to make money. These are just a couple strange ideas that I noticed recently. But you won't find them if you don't look. Unfortunately, having negative money beliefs will keep you from seeing what is out there. This comes across via cognitive dissonance. Our subconscious won't let us notice something that contradicts our beliefs about ourselves. The most common limiting belief about money is a feeling of unworthiness. This is not something that we can consciously recognize. In fact, quite the opposite. We ONLY do things that are inside our comfort zone. And our comfort zone is defined but what we feel worthy doing. We don't feel worthy outside of our comfort zone. But even ADMITTING that we feel unworthy is nearly impossible. Our subconscious does plenty of mental gymnastics to keep us safe. But if you SLIGHTLY decrease your negative beliefs, and SLIGHTLY increase your feeling of worthiness, you will SLIGHTLY expand your comfort zone. It's KIND OF like the red car effect, but much more complicated. You don't notice any red cars until you buy one. Then you buy one and you see them everywhere. The same thing happens when you SLOWLY expand you comfort zone. You'll slowly see more money OPPORTUNITIES. Since these are opportunities, and not sacks of cash laying there in plain sight, you'll need to INTERACT with them. Sometimes this might mean talking to people whom you don't normally talk to. Or go places where you don't normally go. Or read goofy articles about selling plasma that you don't normally read. And you might even go to one of those plasma places. And guess who you'd meet? Other people who are ACTIVELY seeking interesting ways to make money. And who knows where that might lead? One thing that WON'T work is waiting around for a money, or money opportunities, to land in your lap. They're out there. But you have to look. And to see them, you need to remove your money-blinders. The limiting beliefs that ONLY allow you to see things your subconscious thinks you are worthy of. Start removing your money beliefs, and you'll see a whole new world out there.
