  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July15Post.mp4 One way that humans transfer skills from one brain to another is through modeling. Unconscious copying. This can happen purely unconsciously, when kids copy things from adults. Or when teenagers pick up "bad" behaviors from the "wrong" crowd. Or partially consciously, partially unconsciously, in the case of the master-apprentice relationship. Or fully consciously, when we practice something from a teacher or a coach, but with our full conscious attention. Natural, instinctive life skills are mostly unconscious. Walking, talking, learning basic skills. Complex mind-body skills generally are the master-apprentice part. Mostly mental skills, like algebra, are mostly conscious. We watch the teacher solve and equation on the board, and unconsciously copying that isn't so easy. We have to practice a lot. Consider that this is ONE reason we have self awareness. So we could have different levels of learning. But the best kind of modeling is when you model your future self. If you imagine you have a skill, in the future. And you try to practice to get closer to that future you with the future skill. And along the way, your brain will give you plenty of advice on how to get there the quickest. It's tempting to expect or hope this will be easy. Like if you ask a stranger on the street where the nearest Taco Bell is. He gives you the directions, and you visualize going there, consciously or unconsciously. That is pretty easy. But going into the unknown future, even if you have a very clear endpoint, means the path is going to be unknown. Walking on some named streets is easy. But learning skills you've never experienced before, isn't. This is why many people give up easily. They imagine having a skill. They imagine the benefits from this skill. They try to go from where they are, to where they want to be. But unlike walking to Taco Bell, there will be obstacles. Things they didn't expect. Things that take a little bit of brainpower. Most people HATE obstacles. They spend all their brain energy WISHING those obstacles weren't there. Complaining that those obstacles are there. Even creating a complex idea that those obstacles were put there on purpose. That's fine. Let those people think that. Why? Because those obstacles are not mere roadblocks. They are very, very important things. One is they are mental teaching tools. Your brains way of looking ahead, and giving you skill learning exercises. Because once you get PAST those obstacles, you'll have a lot more experience in your brain. Which will make it MORE likely to get closer to the target. But even better, those obstacles work as FILTERS. Every one you pass separates people like you from the lazy people who expect things easy. Which means the more obstacles you hack your way through, the less competition you'll have. For ALL the good things in life. Money, love, romance, status, sex, and whatever else you want.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July12Post.mp4 There's an interesting movie called, "Chef." It's got tons of big name actors. The main character is played by a guy known more for producing all the Marvel superhero movies. In the movie, the main character was a chef. But he wanted to create really high quality food. His boss wanted him to create commercially viable, high quality food. Right off the bat this sounds like a metaphor for the dudes own life. Maybe he always wanted to produce deep emotional classics, but he found himself producing shallow but highly profitable superhero movies. Anyhow, he has a disagreement with his boss (Dustin Hoffman), and quits. Then his buddy shows up, and says he's got an idea. Why don't we buy a "taco truck?" Another name for these things is a "roach coach." Anyhow, the rest of the movie was an enjoyable "feel good" movie about this chef, his son, and his buddy. On a road trip across America, selling food to folks out of his "taco truck." His kid would tweet where they would be next, and a crowd of raving fans would be waiting. It was a good movie. I enjoyed watching it. But something was a bit "off" about it. So I read a bunch of other opinions to see if online folks agreed. And I found that yes, most people enjoyed it, but it was missing something. Finally I figured it out. There was very little conflict. As soon as a problem popped up, a solution just kind of showed up. So it was enjoyable to watch, but not MOVING. What, exactly, does that description mean? What does it mean when a book, or a movie, a comic book, a song or a story related to us by a friend, "moves" us? What, exactly is moving? Our emotions. And just from happy to a different kind of happy to yet another different kind of happy. That's kind of what the roach coach movie was about it. We need ALL the emotions. And in a believable way. We need to feel fear, worry, anxiety, deep emotional loss, sadness, anger, and hopefully, triumph of some kind at the end. A study was done by a kajillion different fictional novels. By some kind of super computer. The plots were similar on one VERY profound way. Every time something good happened, something bad happened. The characters solved or otherwise got over the bad thing, and experienced a good thing. Just like in music. Resonance - dissonance - resonance. Chord - discord - chord. The most common story structure is the hero's journey. The entire story leads up to a MASSIVE show down. Good buy vs. bad guy. Not always people. Often situations, inner struggles, but the structure is the same. A long build up, a final battle and a victorious hero. Why do we like this kind of structure? It resonates with our ideal life. We all struggle. We all face obstacles. Every single day. There's two responses to this. The roach coach response, where we pretend there ARE no obstacles. Or the heroic response. Where we embrace the obstacles. Do battle with them. And conquer them. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/obstacle-obliteration/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July10Post.mp4 Humans are incredible complex creatures. About two million years ago, we discovered fire. And this changed everything. Before fire, we had to hunt like every other animal. Find something to eat, and chase it until we caught it. One theory is that this strategy is why we developed sweaty, hairless bodies and arched feet. Arched feet so we could run long distances without messing up our knees and hips. Sweaty, hairless bodies so we could bleed off body heat. The only way animals can get rid of body heat is to stop and pant. (Or maybe jump into a river) But since we can sweat, we run really slowly, for a LONG TIME. Animals can sprint, but not very far. They'll have to stop and pant, to get rid of body heat. This gave us an advantage over animals, but it was only a PHYSICAL advantage. Running after a deer for a couple hours until you finally caught it didn't require any brainpower. Fire changed all that. For one, fire was the first time we could purposely use, and direct, energy OUTSIDE of our body. And this helped us to hunt. The pre-historical quarterback would call the plays. Send a bunch of guys to the far end of the forest. Send your best spear throwers on the other end of the forest. The first guys would light the forest on fire. The animals would run away from the fire. Toward the waiting spear throwers. This happened about two million years ago. That's also when our brains started growing really fast. Before, it was essentially a running contest. The longest, most endurance, runners survived. But with fire, came strategizing. Testing the wind, guessing what kinds of animals were in the forest, AND being able to communicate what WOULD happen. It's one thing to talk about what we can SEE. "See that animal over there? Run after it, catch it, kill it, bring it back." It takes WAY more brain power to talk about what MIGHT happen. To think about all the things that might go wrong. And to communicate possible ways to OVERCOME those things that might go wrong. Whoever could do this the BEST, was the leader or the tribe. And the leader of the tribe would get the most sex, and have the most kids. This went on for two million years. And because of this ABSTRACT THINKING contest, this STRATEGIZING CONTEST, our brains tripled in size. And this strategy is STILL with us today. Look out into the world. Figure out what you want. Think of all the ways to get it. Think of all the possible obstacles that might pop up. Choose the best ones, and GET IT. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/obstacle-obliteration/
