  1. Once upon a time, there was no money. Now there is tons of money. Even in the last few years, there has been a lot of NEW money. Crypto-money. Invented essentially from scratch. Every day in the FOREX markets, there are trillions of dollars traded. Your blood cells go around your body. They pick up energy in the form of food and oxygen. Deliver the energy to the cells that need it. And then they turn around and transport the waste out. Without blood, and the cells within it, you'd be dead. Money serves the same purpose. Goods flow around the world one way. Money flows the other way. They say that as long as goods and money are flowing across borders, there's no reason for war. War only happens once money and goods STOP flowing. The flow of money around the world keeps the world healthy and thriving. As soon as money stops flowing, problems start, and people die. As soon as blood stops flowing, problems start and YOU die. When bears get ready for the winter, they store energy in the form of body fat. When ancient societies got ready for the winter, they stored energy in the from of grain. Now we humans can get ready for ANY span of time when we DON'T want to work by storing energy. This energy, of course, is money. You put a bunch of people together with a bunch of skills, and they'll INVENT a form of money. Sometimes they use cigarettes. Sometimes they use cases of soda. Sometimes they use shells, or salt, or gold or silver. When love to think of ourselves as individuals. But we are also very social animals. With a whole bunch of social instincts. Consider that one our MOST IMPORTANT social instinct is to make stuff. Or help make stuff, and then trade that stuff for money. The more money you get, the more stuff you can get. With everybody making stuff and selling it to each other, the amount of stuff increases. And the amount of money increases. This has been happening ever since they first invented coins, back in a few hundred BC. The amount of stuff has been increasing ever since. The amount of money has been increasing ever since. If aliens were studying humans, they'd see we have two purposes. To make stuff and make money. But since would see us trading stuff for money and money for stuff, they would see MONEY as the energy of earth. This is your destiny. To make money.

  3. There are a lot of over the counter "drugs" that are marketed for weight loss. And when it comes to weight loss, there's really ONE way to do it. You MUST burn more calories than you consume. This means you can either INCREASE the calories you burn, and keep the calories you consume constant. Or DECREASE the calories you consume, and keep the calories you burn constant. Or, of course, any combination. No matter WHAT kind of pills you take for weight loss, they will do one of those two things. Some are stimulants, and they speed up your metabolism. Some are appetite suppressants, and help you consume less. Some do both. But some are very tricky, especially how they are marketed. There was one company that got into trouble a few years back. Their whole angle was the magical sounding, "Lose weight while you sleep." Their particular pills were "precursors." These are building blocks of larger chemicals. The larger chemicals these precursors allegedly made were human growth hormone, or HGH. If you get an injection of REAL HGH, it IS like magic. Increased metabolism, faster healing, etc. A real fountain of youth. But the weight loss pill's angle was you'd take these precursor, they would "link up together" in your blood to build HGH. Then the HGH would do the job of making you lose weight while you slept. As a half baked idea, it DOES sound pretty convincing. But as a fully baked idea, it's not really so great. I would be like dumping all the "precursors" to a building, and waiting for a building to magically appear. Bricks, cement, lumbar, nails, paint etc. If you put all that stuff in a pile and waited, NOTHING would happen. You would need the actual builders to put the stuff together. And the plans, and somebody to PAY them. That's why those "lose weight while you sleep" pills never worked, and the company that was marketing them got in trouble with the FCC. But the idea of precursors IS a good one. Because no matter WHAT you are building, you NEED the smaller components. If you are going to make a sandwich, you need bread and peanut butter (or whatever else). But sandwiches, houses, HGH, these are NON-SENTIENT entities. When it comes to people, we have these programs that are already running. Our instincts are ALWAYS driving us to do things. Eat, sleep, reliever ourselves, get horny, get new stuff. And since we are EXTREMELY SOCIAL creatures, we have TONS of social instincts. That's why we LOVE meeting new people. That's why we LOVE hanging out with friends. And when you can carefully elicit the right social-instinct-precursors in the right order, that will add up to some POWERFUL social desire. And you can stick that desire to anything you want. You, your ideas, your products. Anything. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-mind-persuasion/

  5. Many sales people have a common problem. It's the same problem people have when persuading anybody. If you're a guy, this "problem" comes when asking for the number. Or leaning in for the kiss. Or any type of "close." Closing can be applied to any next step. For example, if you are a salesman, you convert cold leads into warm leads by CLOSING the appointment. Then you hopefully turn warm leads into customers by CLOSING the sale. If you're a guy talking to a girl at a bar, you turn her from a "cold lead" into a "warm lead" by closing for the number. Since this is the MOST difficult part, it gets most of our attention. But in reality it should be the EASIEST part. The most NATURAL part. Think of it this way. If you are a salesperson, the client shouldn't need ANY convincing to buy the product. To them, it should feel just like buying a product on their own. They have a desire, they find the product, the grab it and head toward the register. Closing anxiety only happens when you imagine they need convincing. That they aren't quite ready to buy the product. That they aren't quite ready to give you their number. The paradox is the more worried you are, the less likely it will happen. Anxiety gives off a negative vibe. Negative non-verbal energy. The same kind of negative non-verbal energy that makes cats and dogs sketchy around you. So when you even THINK about building up to the close, you are also building up that negative energy. From the other person's perspective, while you were just chatting them up or explaining the product, you were relaxed. This, paradoxically, is when their interest is highest. The LONGER you worry about closing, the LOWER their buying temperature becomes. To a completely impartial, mind-reading, alien observer, this would seem EXTREMELY strange. There you are, with a HOT PROSPECT in front of you. But BEFORE you decide to close, you TURN DOWN their buying temperature. What's the answer? Forget about closing. Instead, focus on building as much desire as you possibly can. If you are selling anything, the customer will eventually tell you to shut up and sell it to them. If you are chatting up a guy or a girl, they will eventually close you. Because when you build desire the RIGHT WAY, they will feel stronger desire with you than they've ever felt before. And when we humans feel this, we want more. So when you can create this high level of desire in others, they will make it VERY EASY on you. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-mind-persuasion/
  6. Everybody wants more money. Rich people want more money. Poor people want more money. If you have a ghost in your house, the ghost probably wants more money. At the same time, we don't like the idea of other people having more money than us. Especially if we THINK they got it by "cheating." Sniffing out cheaters is an instinct. A very necessary one. Our instincts still believe we are living in ancient hunter-gatherer tribes. That's why it's so hard to lose weight with will power. Our instincts REALLY BELIEVE that we might not get any food in the foreseeable future. Our instincts CAN'T think or plan. They can only COMPELL us. And our food instinct COMPELS us to eat as much as we can whenever there is plenty of food available. How does our cheating instinct work? It's a social instinct that helped bind ancient tribes together. It FORCED everybody to share. One guy got a big kill, he was compelled to share it with everybody. Both because he felt compelled, and because he knew people would be angry if he didn't. This kept tribes tightly organized. Everybody trusted everybody. Everybody worked together to help each other survive. So today, when we see somebody who's super rich, AND it doesn't seem like they "earned" it, it triggers our cheating instinct. But like most of our other instincts, they are what they are. If you want to stay slim and healthy, you MUST be hungry and not eat. If you want to make more money, you MUST ignore the natural anger we feel for rich people who are "lucky." Rich people who show up with the right set of skills, or even looks, that make it EASY for them to make money. Getting angry won't help. It would be like getting angry at your hunger. But that frustration is also an instinct. It's a natural motivator. The frustration makes you ANGRY. And you use that anger to overcome obstacles. What obstacles? The ones between where you are and where you want to be. Most people use their anger ineffectively. They use their anger to try and get OTHER PEOPLE to remove their obstacles. That FEELS GOOD. Especially when politicians make promises that SOUND like that. "Vote for me and I'll fix your problems." That, unfortunately, is the one OLDEST lies of organized society. Don't fall for it. The ONLY PERSON who can remove the obstacles between where you are and where you want to be is YOU. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/

  8. Prosperity Hypnosis: Immediately after listening to this hypnosis section It became easier to take action with less hesitation. For example, I just got a freelance deal for about $250 after 2days of listening to this section. Whether or not it's coincidental or not to me is irrelevant. My mindset changed to creating and seeking more opportunities. In an example, I have a few money making ideas that now seem very practical to do.

  11. A not uncommon movie them is one event, but that is seen from different perspectives. Perhaps the most popular is the Japanese movie, Yojimbo. About a single event, but was seen completely different from different viewpoints. Since we all have our subjective views, it’s very difficult to ever see anything from a truly objective perspective. Being able to switch between objective view and subjective view is a fantastic skill. Even doing this after the fact is helpful, albeit rare. Most people CAN’T or WON’T do this. For example, if something happens that didn’t go your way, a great way to improve is to examine it after the fact. To force your brain to see things from different perspectives. The reason this is so difficult is it’s hard to let go, even temporarily, of our ego. One way to think of our ego is as a very powerful social instinct that always holds up the idea of self as being the most important thing. Those that didn’t have a strong “ego instinct” didn’t have a high likelihood of surviving in a hunter-gatherer environment. But if you CAN temporarily turn off your ego, it allows for some very POWERFUL inter-personal techniques. Just shutting off your ego temporarily, and seeing things from the other person’s perspective will be very helpful. Nobody does ANYTHING unless it’s in their own interests. But this is hard to see with everybody having their ego always on full throttle. When you turn off your ego, and expand THEIR self-interests, they’ll start to be attracted to everything about you. If you are selling things, it will be much easier. If you are simply talking to people, you’ll be much more attractive. It does take practice. It can’t be faked. And you have to know when to turn it off, and when to turn it back on again. But once you can take CONSCIOUS control of your ego, and adjust it according to the other person’s “ego frequency” you can easily get anybody to do pretty much anything. Even though this is pretty easy, few people know about this. Because this technique is ONLY available to those who can effectively MANAGE their ego. Since so few people even ACKNOWLEDGE their, this will give you an even stronger advantage. Just be careful. Using this for sales is fantastic. But if you use this for seduction, you might get people you’d just met falling hopelessly in love with you. And trust me, not many people SHOULD be qualified to fall in love with you. Which is why you should always qualify first, and persuade later. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/sell-anything/

  13. One of the fundamental discoveries of chemistry, which also has a huge impact on quantum physics, is the Paul Exclusion Principle. This law says that no two particles in the same system can have EXACTLY the same characteristics. For example, two electrons on level one in an atom have both the same level, so the must have different spins. There are a bunch of other characteristics, which allows for many different combinations. It’s kind of like a bunch of houses can have the same street name in their address, but they each have to have a different number. Essentially, every house in the world has more or less it’s own version of the Pauli Exclusion Principle. No two houses on earth can have the EXACT same address. No matter how similar they are, something HAS TO BE different. Human desires are like this as well. We will always have a ton of unmet desires within us. This is one way to describe humans, and all animals. We have a ton of desires that keep popping up. They stay satisfied, but then they pop up again. Things like food, safety, relaxation, movement, even things like learning and experiencing new things. Every single one of these sub-desires kind of oscillates between being satisfied, and being unsatisfied. And at any given time, we’ll have ONE desire that is STRONGER than all the rest. It will be like this until we are no longer. Even deeper down the rabbit hole is the idea that we understand on a deep and intuitive level that EVERY DESIRE will cost something. Either time, effort (which also means calories), money, or risk. Since we aren’t magical creatures that can poof things into existence, every single time we want to satisfy ANY desire, we have to pay the costs. Whether we are stranded on a desert island and have to climb trees to get some coconuts, or we are in our favorite burrito shop and have to fork over a few bucks to get what we want, trade is always involved. And this is the secret to easy riches. How? Because as soon as we think what we are GETTING is worth more than what we are GIVING, the transaction will be easy. The trick is to simply build the value of whatever they are getting, so they will GLADLY pay what you are asking. Of course “pay” doesn’t have to mean money. It might mean some risk they might incur by giving you their number. Or agree to doing YOUR idea instead of THEIR idea. Or handing you a sack of cash for whatever you are selling. Unfortunately, most people do this the wrong way. The hard way. The low probability way. When you do it the OPPOSITE way, (which takes time because it’s against human nature) everything will be opposite. Easy, natural and HIGH probability. Meaning once you learn how, getting others to do whatever you want will be EASY. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/sell-anything/
  14. Feedback is an essential element of all progress. Even the silly swimming pool game of “Marco Polo” is an example of a very basic feedback system. One kid has his eyes closes, and says, “Marco.” Then the other kids say “Polo.” And the kid, with his eyes closed, has to find and “tag” somebody else. Every time he says, “Marco,” and hears “Polo,” he has more info about where everybody is. We humans have all kinds of feedback systems built in. Once in elementary school, a friend of mine fell off his skateboard. In doing so, he got a stick stuck in his ear. It temporarily messed up his balance system. Our balance system lives inside of our inner ear. You mess it up and you can’t walk without falling over. Essentially the structure is the same as in airplanes, so when they are flying and can’t see anything, they can still stay level. When going after any goal, you need two elements. A directional or horizon goal, so you’re going in the right direction, and milestone goals, so you know you’re making the right progress. Way back in the day, before they invented farming, humans had both of these built in. The direction was wherever the food was. The milestone was their daily instinctive needs. When they were eating, this was a signal they’d been successful, and they could relax. When they were hungry, this was a signal to go out and kill something. When they learned how to track animals, every time they saw a new set of tracks, this was also a milestone goal, letting them know they were getting closer. When humans invented society, and more importantly money, this stayed the same on a structure level, but changes significantly on a content level. Now, since there’s tons of stuff to make and build and sell, any one “horizon” career goal will do. But the milestone goals are very, very simple. What are they? More money. Stated as simply as possible, if you constrain yourself by making money by creating something of value other people are willing to pay for, having more money as your goal will never fail you. The STRONGER your desire for money, the more motivated you’ll be to figure out ways to get it. The more motivated you are, the more ways you’ll figure out, and the more STUFF we humans keep inventing. In essence, modern human success is very simple. Build up as STRONG as a desire for money as you can. Then get out into the world and figure out how make some. Luckily, we humans come preprogrammed with instincts that make this possible. Since we humans have pretty much been doing this since the dawn of time. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  15. One idea that comes from reading stock charts is the idea of being “over extended.” For example, if a stock is bouncing along, very slowly going up over a couple of years, it looks pretty normal. The daily movements, the short and long moving averages are pretty close to one another. But then if the stock shoots WAY ABOVE it’s average movements, it could mean a lot of things. But one deep suspicion, no matter WHAT it means, is that it is unsustainable. No stock will ever go up at such a sharp angle for so long. Essentially, what makes a stock go up is that the buyers want to buy MUCH MORE than the sellers want to sell. Every point it goes up, this becomes less and less likely. EVENTUALLY, it will reach an equilibrium point. When buying and selling energy is back in balance. This is not completely different from the “growth spurt” that comes with puberty. If he believed that much growth is going to be consistent, a kid might calculate that by the time he’s 40, he’ll be fifty feet tall. Growth spurts in stocks are like growth spurts in kids. They may be completely natural, but they are also naturally UNSUSTAINABLE. When I finished watching the “Wolf of Wall St.” I was curious about the real events. So I went home and did some research on the guy. Turns out, that he made his riches while the entire stock market was going up at a 45 degree angle. During that environment, you could throw darts at the stock page, buy that stock, and still have a good chance of making money. So when Mr. Wolf was calling people at home, they already KNEW the market was screaming up every day. Which means they ALREADY had a very strong sense of FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out. In that environment, it’s VERY EASY to make money in the stock market. And it’s very easy to make money selling stock market scams. On a bigger scale, it’s VERY EASY to make money when the economy is screaming. All you have to do is show up and not do anything too stupid. When the economy is flat, or even shrinking, THAT’S when it takes some serious skills. If you go fishing in a lake over-stocked with dumb fish, it’s easy. Fishing in a lake with a few fish that specifically DON’T WANT to get eaten will require some serious fishing skills. Luckily, making money is an instinct. Since all humans have been essentially doing it since society was invented. While it not be easy, it IS natural. And the more you practice, the better you’ll get.

  16. Chomsky became famous for his transformational grammar theory. Basically, his idea was that Earth only has one language, and a whole bunch of dialects. He showed that we think in terms of basic language structure. And the only difference between the world’s languages is the deep structure. For example, some languages, like English are “subject - verb - object.” I ate a burrito. Others, like Japanese, are “subject - object - verb.” I burrito ate. But it turns out that each segment (the subject, the object and the verb) can be further broken down. And the structure of each “sub section” is the same structure of the whole. This is what he called “X-bar theory.” And when kids are between 0 and 3, they are actually calibrating their “language switches” to the local “dialect.” This is why you can take any kid, from any country, and no matter WHAT country he grows up in, he’ll speak like a native. It’s what Chomsky called “Universal Grammar.” Another guy named Brown similarly wanted to find a “Universal People.” Not a secret group of people that we all come from. But a metaphorical description of a metaphorical group of people that have the SAME traits of all other people. So he spent his entire career studying any group of people he could find. No matter how advanced or primitive. And he found TONS of similarities. Like people are shy when talking about sex. Nobody likes to be watched taking a dump. People believe in some kind of “magic,” or a kind of science that can’t be seen. Some of us call it religion, others call it metaphysics. But EVERY group of people believe in a set of laws that can’t be proven or demonstrated. EVERY culture has a fear of snakes. There are ZERO cultures on earth that think of snakes as cute and cuddly. Needless to say, when you find the SAME STUFF in every culture, then that kind of indicates it exists in our DNA. We don’t need to learn to be worried about being watched taking a dump. We don’t need to learn to be afraid of snakes. We don’t need to learn to be a bit timid about talking about a boner we just got looking at the girl sitting next to us in class. Another thing that is common in EVERY SINGLE CULTURE that has ever existed is the idea of trade or barter. Sometimes it happens between friends. Sometimes it happens between strangers. But it ALWAYS happens. And the ONE THING that is needed BEFORE any culture makes the leap from primitive to advanced is MONEY. Money comes first, everything else comes later. And since this happens EVERYWHERE on the planet, you can be there’s MONEY in your DNA. Wake It Up: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  17. In stock charts, they have something called the “bleeding edge.” It’s very easy to fool yourself from studying stock charts that investing is pretty easy. Some of the technical indicators make it look simple. When this one line crossed over that one, it’s time to buy. When they cross back, it’s time to sell. Combine this with a sound money management strategy, and it’s easy money. Sound money management means if anything goes up 15%, sell it. If it goes down 5%, sell it. That means that even if you lose half of your trades, you still make money. If you stick to your money management, then the losses will cost you 5%, but the gains will make you 15%. Easy peasy, right? One of my favorite quotes that describes how NOT “easy peasy” this is: “Hitting a target is one thing. Doing so with a loaded pistol pointed at your heart is something else.” Meaning anybody can shoot at a target, and with enough practice, hit the bulls eye every single time. But once your life is on the line, it’s nearly impossible. Check any police shooting. It’s not uncommon for three or four cops to be shooting at a fleeing bad guy, each one shoot ten or twenty bullets, and MISS. This is why trading stocks is not nearly as easy as it looks. The “bleeding edge” is when you DON’T KNOW what is coming next. With each successive tick forward, it could go UP or it could go DOWN. Historical charts are graphical representations of hindsight being twenty-twenty. When you see the whole chart, past, present and future, it’s really not any different than yelling at the quarterback on TV. “Why don’t you pass the ball you dummy!” We look at situations MUCH DIFFERENTLY when our emotions get involved. Shooting at a target is EASY when it’s safe. But when the target is not only moving, but shooting back, it’s extremely difficult. This is why making money can seem so difficult. Everything seems easy when you’re reading about it. But when you get out there on the street, it’s much scarier. Luckily, we all have the deep INSTINCTS to make money. It’s just that in the modern world, they’ve been lulled to sleep. They aren’t simple instincts like eating, sleeping, and wanting sex. They are complex and subtle. But they ARE instincts. Which means you can understand them, cultivate them, and strengthen them. These are the SAME instincts that have driven humans to create ALL the stuff we have. Those same instincts are in YOU.

  18. A great story is “The Alchemist.” It’s an easy read, and it’s deeply metaphorical. Which means it can have a lot of different interpretations. Essentially, it’s about a kid who goes out into the world looking for the secret of alchemy. Alchemy, as it is traditionally thought of, is the process of taking sand or dirt, and turning it into gold. Before humans discovered atoms and molecules and the laws of chemistry, they really had no idea what “stuff” was made of. So they figured it might be possible to turn sand into gold. Even Isaac Newton believed in alchemy. But anyhow, the hero of the story goes out and searches the world for the secret to turning sand into gold. And in the process, he has plenty of adventures. He gets a job working in a shop as a salesperson. And he’s pretty good in sales, and makes a lot of money. Then he meets a girl and falls in love. Then he meets a man who can control the weather. Eventually he gives up and goes home. Only to find his home (which was a church) has burned down. And when he starts digging it up to build a new one, he finds hidden treasure under the ground. The moral can be that what you go looking for treasure OUTSIDE, you really have it INSIDE the whole time. But there’s another idea you can take away. He went looking for a secret shortcut to get rich. And he spent so much time and energy looking for that shortcut. Even in the process, he made money. He found a job in a shop, got good at it and made a LOT of money. But because he was looking for a SHORTCUT to money, he ignored the actual money he was making. Helping the shopkeepers selling their stuff to people who wanted and needed it. But since he was SO BUSY looking for a shortcut to riches, he missed the money he was actually making. I don’t know if this is what the author meant. But the dude could have had a pretty happy life. Making some good cash, married to a girl he loved and loved him. But he was SO BUSY looking for a shortcut, he missed all the TRULY good things in life. That he found secret treasure hidden back at home kind of ruins that part of the story. It kind of makes it sound like the secret to riches is to go out looking for it, and then come home and find some secret treasure. But the REAL SECRET to riches was hidden in the story about hidden treasure. And that is that people make things. People buy things. And every time this happens, money changes hands. Once upon a time, there was no stuff, and no money. Now there's TONS of stuff, and TONS of money. That is the REAL MAGIC. Get in THAT game, and get some.

  19. I remember my very first “burning desire.” I wanted to buy this electronic kit from Radio Shack. But I didn’t have any money, and my parents wouldn't give me any. And if I saved up my allowance, it would take several weeks. I didn't want to wait. So I got busy, and eventually got it. Napoleon Hill talked about the burning desire. Unfortunately, many people misunderstand a lot of Hill’s work. His book, “Think and Grow Rich,” is unlike most books on money. Most books on money are filled with esoteric nonsense. And nearly all of them promise some kind of magic shortcuts. You can get all kinds of money and fame and success WITHOUT doing any work. If you only “believe” enough, a bag of money will fall out of the sky and land in your lap. But Hill reverse engineered all the people that built huge financial empires. And they did so without sitting around and chanting some goofy affirmations. They did it throughout the course of their lives. Essentially, “Think and Grow Rich,” was Hill’s way of describing their money making traits. The most powerful was the idea of the “burning desire.” The burning desire MUST BE stronger than any effort that will be required to create your fortune. Imagine a monkey sitting at the base of a tree. He’s hungry, and there’s a banana up the tree. Climbing up the tree to get the banana will cost him 200 calories. If the strength of his burning desire is GREATER than 200 calories, he’ll get the banana. If he only has a burning desire of 150 calories, then he’ll just keep staring at the banana. Maybe he’ll try some magic law-of-banana chants that will allegedly manifest a magic banana from the tree to his hand. And that poor monkey might believe in magic SO MUCH than he expends more than 200 calories of magic banana chanting. But it still won't get the banana. The only thing that will get the banana is if he gets up off his monkey behind and climbs up the tree. The same goes with humans and fortunes. You need a burning desire. And you need to use that burning desire to PROPEL you through the RIGHT ACTION to get whatever it is you want. This isn’t easy. Which is why most people will STAY broke. Harsh, but true. On the other hand, once you get going, and get some momentum, you can’t even consider living another way. The other big idea in “Think and Grow Rich” is that thoughts are things. Every single thing that exists today was once a thought in somebody’s brain. And through action, powered by burning desire, those thoughts turned into things. Do that and get paid. A LOT.

  20. They call economics the dismal science for a reason. It forces us to ditch magical thinking. It is possible to succeed with magical thinking, but it also requires you be incredibly lucky. This is the drawback with studying how to succeed from successful people. The truth of most success is that it’s MOSTLY unconscious. People show up with a collection of skills. And they show up with those collection of raw skills at the right time. And they succeed wildly. But then when they try to explain WHY they succeeded, they necessarily miss a lot of information. Even worse is when they attribute their success to some magical laws. Think about if from their perspective. Imagine if you show up on planet earth with plenty of raw talent, and very decent looks. You become successful. Later in life, people ask HOW you become so successful. Which explanation do you think you’d rather use? A) There is a magic law of success I was able to discover and resonate with. Dude, I have ZERO idea! Just lucky, I guess! One, (A), keeps people focused on you. The other, (B), makes people NOT focus on you. Even get ANGRY at you for being lucky. This isn’t easy to hear. But since the sun comes up every morning, and if you toss a ball in the air a million times, it’s going to come back down a million times, we have to accept that we live in a universe that is governed by LAWS. Not goofy and untestable laws like “If you believe it, you’ll achieve it!” But measurable and testable laws. Like laws of money. What are the laws of money? If you provide genuine value to somebody else, based on THEIR subjective value system, they will HAPPILY pay you. Some people are indeed lucky. They don’t need to try hard to provide value to others. They just do what comes natural. But they are STILL getting paid due to the laws of money. They ARE providing value to others, based on those others’ subjective values. Just because the lucky ones don’t understand that, it doesn’t mean it’s magic. Once upon a time, people thought negative numbers were proof of witchcraft or voodoo. Not understanding something does make it magic. It just means you don’t understand. And if you DO understand it, you can leverage it. Lucky for us, the laws of money are written into our DNA. Contrary to what the goofs who run the world tell us, money is NOT something that the “authorities” need to create. Because every single time you get enough people together, they will INVENT a form of money. And every time a society has invented a basic form of money, technology always takes off. Money is an instinct. Wake it up, and get some. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  21. When I was a little kid, I used to love magic tricks. Especially the cheesy kind you’d buy from the back of comic books. My favorite was a magic money machine. You put a dollar bill in one side, and rolled it in, and a $5 bill would come out the other side. Of course, you had to pre-load it with the $5. The dollar would roll up and in, the $5 would roll out. If you showed it to somebody for the first time, it would look pretty cool. But once you figured out the trick, it wouldn’t work any more. Another trick was a deck of cards, but they were all the same card. No matter what card they picked, it was always the 3 of hearts. So long as you had a new audience, and you could be creative, you could have a lot of fun. But as soon as anybody wanted to check the deck, the jig was up. A lot of people believe EVERYTHING is a trick like this. There’s a lot of reason why many things are purposely presented like this. As secret tricks. Once I bought a mail order course. A GUARANTEED system that would make money at the track. Of course, “guarantee” meant that if it didn’t work, they GUARANTEED they’d give you more money back. But this required you show PROOF that you tried it and it didn’t work. This was all in the fine print. This type of “guarantee” coupled with the sales letter made it seem pretty legitimate. But the “catch” was that in order to “try it” you had to use some VERY ADVANCED mathematics. Therein lied the con. Since the math required to use the system was SO complicated, NOBODY would be able to figure it out. And NOBODY would be able to qualify for the “guarantee.” The real “secret” is there IS NO SECRET. It’s all out in the open. If there really WAS some kind of secret, and it was something everybody could learn and do, it wouldn’t be secret. The whole idea of a “secret” is a con itself. If everybody believes there is a “secret” everybody will keep looking for a “secret.” But when it comes to making money, you already have everything you need. Because making money is based on human instincts. Since money exists EVERYWHERE, and has existed everywhere, it MUST BE due to something inherent to human nature. It is a collection of instincts and skills. The more you practice, the better you’ll get. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  22. There’s a lot of things that we depend on that doesn’t really exist. In fact, most things don’t really exist. Actually, NOTHING exists. Now, before you think I’ve gone off the deep end, let me explain. There’s the famous Einstein equation that says E=mc^2. We know this isn’t just a theory. This is the physics behind atom bombs and nuclear energy. Matter and energy is really the same stuff. But it turns out that “matter” isn’t really a “thing.” It’s really only a metaphor. Most people know about molecules and atoms. And many people know that atoms are made of protons, neutrons and electrons. And many people know that most of the “mass” in the atoms are from the neutrons and protons, since electrons are pretty light. (Silly Joke: A photon checked into a hotel. The desk clerk asked if he had any bags. The photon said, “No, I’m traveling light.”) But here’s the thing. Neutrons and protons are made up of these things called “quarks.” And quarks are almost PURE energy. They are sort of “trapped” inside the proton or neutron (both called nucleons) and are vibrating at such a high frequency, that nearly ALL of what they are is made up by energy. Even Schroedinger, the guy who came up with the “probability wave function” theory about matter, said that everything really IS (not metaphorically) various manifestations of energy waves. Schroedinger is the guy who came up with the cat in a box metaphor. It could be dead it could be alive. Until you open it, it’s both. But once you open it, you force it to be one or another. According to him, all matter exists as probability functions. As POTENTIAL. But beyond the squishy construction of reality, our language is filled with metaphors. Things that don’t really exist, but we act as if they do. Like we describe the process of “falling in love.” What is that noun, “love?” It’s a feeling. It’s a collection of hormones. It’s an instinct that is responsible for making sure humans couples stayed together long enough for junior to grow up and fend for himself. But all of these are metaphors as well. As a “thing” it doesn’t really exist. But we talk about it as if it does. Moreover, we talk about it as if it were a CONTAINER. Something we are IN. Love is one of the most POWERFUL metaphors we use. Another is MONEY. Most people don’t like talking about it. But look back through human history, and you’ll find it everywhere. The larger and more complex any society is, the MORE of this “money-energy” is flowing EVERYWHERE. The more primitive it is, the less there is. You may say that LOVE is a necessary binding force that keeps families together. And MONEY is a necessary binding force that keeps societies together.

  23. Our brains can sometimes make things too complicated. Being our best feature, our brains, and everything it can do, has made us humans the (currently) top dogs on Earth. Why, specifically, is something that is open for discussion. Some argue it’s our use of language. Or our use of tools. Or our ability to think consciously. One interesting theory says that the long road to conscious thought began WAY back when the first creatures crawled out of the water. See, in the water, you can’t see very far ahead. So you never really need to think about what’s coming up. So any animal that lives in the sea only needs to react. But once they got up on land, they could see a lot further. Which meant they could see what was coming a lot sooner before it got there. That gave those early creatures a lot of time to “think about” a proper response. And from that window of time eventually arose human consciousness. And along with it our big brains. But all that stuff happened a LONG time ago. Most of our recent inventions have only been in the past couple hundred years. Beyond two or three hundred years ago, life was as it had been. And going back only 10,000 years, a BLINK as far as all life, we were pretty much the same as we were way back when we were lower primates. Sure, we could talk and think and make up stories about characters up in the sky, but what made us SUDDENLY leap forward? First farming, and then large cities, and recently everything else? The main thing was that GROUPS started inventing things. One “characteristic” of all these inventions was they were made for the MASSES. Meaning guys like Edison, Ford, Gates, they invented stuff, but up until very recently, all inventions were PERSONAL. People would make stuff they could use themselves. Only in the past few hundred years have people been making stuff to be used by the MASSES. Why? Are they super generous? Are they benevolent? Angels secretly pretending to be humans? Nope. There is ONE reason and ONE reason only those inventors have schemed their ENTIRE LIVES to invent things to be used by the masses. (OK, maybe not the ONLY reason but the MAIN reason...) They wanted to get PAID. Their thinking was simple. “If could create something a million people would be willing to pay a couple of dollars for, I could get rich!” This is the ONE THING that is responsible for all this stuff. None of the inventions we enjoy, depend on and take for granted today would be possible it. What is “it”? Money. Get Some: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  24. The long game is an idea is extremely valuable. All failures can be framed in terms of long game failure. Anybody can play the short game. Only looking ahead a move or two. Few people can play the long game. Especially if it involves any short term discomfort. There’s a parable about an ancient Chinese kung fu master. He was strolling down the street, and some young punks accosted him. They many, and they challenged him to a fight. He didn’t feel like fighting. They said the only way to avoid fighting was to crawl on the ground through their legs. He thought about it, and decided to crawl through their legs. Another parable has a valuable advisor to an ancient Chinese emperor. Loyal all the way. Even as the emperor became corrupt and evil. Everybody thought the loyal assistant, being an honest man, was the only hope for society. But so far, he kept helping the evil emperor become more evil. Until one day, the evil emperor had all his evil conspirators in one place. Including the loyal helper. The loyal helper seized the opportunity, and killed them all. The more of the story is twofold. One is that waiting for the right moment is JUST as important as being able to perform at that right moment. But the second moral is much more important. And that’s the both characters (the crawling kung fu guy and the loyal assistant) are the same person. One person who is capable of playing the long game. Waiting patiently for the right moment, and when the right moment comes, leaping into action and killing everybody. That very same dude is capable of crawling on the ground when he’d rather show up on time and not out of breath and covered in other people’s blood. Playing the long game requires looking WAY into the future. And planing TODAY’S actions based on how they’ll resonate years from now. Most people can’t do this. Most people can’t plan past the next couple hours. But if you were to look at all the skills required for building big empires, long game would be one of the most important one. Luckily, this is a skill that can be practiced. No matter what level you are today, you can significantly increase your skills at the long game. And all the benefits that come with it.

  25. Vampires are an interesting metaphor. Mythical creatures that live off human blood. Vampire bats do the same thing. So do plenty of parasites. From a pure energy standpoint, you could do a lot worse than having blood as your main source of food. Blood has plenty of nutrients. One of the richest fictional characters is a vampire. The richest is Scrooge McDuck. The second richest is that vampire family from the Twilight books. The vampires are rich because of compound interest. This why pretty much all vampires are also wealthy. If you lived for a couple hundred years, you’d be rich too. All you would need to do is live SLIGHTLY beneath your means for a hundred years or so, and let the compound interest pile up. So if you DID become a vampire, you’d have to work a crappy job for a while (hundred years or so) while compound interest worked in your favor. Once you’d accumulated your billions, then you could wreak havoc on humans. Interestingly enough, vampire bats also have very basic credit system. Sometimes they go out hunting and come back with a belly full of blood. Sometimes they don’t get squat. But the successful ones “loan” money to the unsuccessful ones. And everybody remembers who owes whom. If they same dude keeps borrowing blood, and never pays it back, nobody will lend to him. Monkeys do this also when they groom each other. They remember who helped whom, and who owes whom. In modern society, a common metaphor for central bankers are vampires. Or “vampire squid” to be specific. This goes WAY back to the beginning of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Now, why would they call central bankers vampires? Money is the lifeblood of society. Just like blood is the lifeblood of humans. Vampires sneak in at night and steal our blood. Central bankers pretty much do the same thing. Slowly suck the blood-money out of society. What does it all mean? Money is important. In every way imaginable. One of the biggest cons the elites have consistently propagated over the centuries, from all the way back to the Roman Empire, is the idea that money is bad, or evil. This is another reason why money is purposely NOT taught in school. It’s something you have to learn about on your own. But the real secret is that money is SIMPLE. It’s an instinct. And when you understand it, and re-calibrate your money instinct for modern times, you’ll see why. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
