  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct26Post.mp4 The human imaginations is incredible. We can imagine things far more amazing than the things that actually exist. This can get us into trouble. In ancient times, this hyperactive imagination was a fantastic force of motivation. A bunch of guys were hungry and out looking for food. All the ladies, kids and old people were back at camp, hoping they'd get something. If they DID, they'd be treated like rock stars. And maybe even get some cave-sex from the young cave ladies. So, they were hyper sensitive to
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept13Post.mp4 One of my favorite lines from Pulp Fiction is "personality goes a long way." This was meant ironically. One guy was talking about not eating pork, because a pig is a filthy animal. The other guy talked about a famous TV pig, on "Green Acres." The selling point of the pig was that he had a good personality. And since personality goes a long way, that might overcome the guy's reversion to pork. Of course, the guy who was promoting the "personality goes a long way," theory was also eating bacon, and arguing that o
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun24Post.mp4 Losing weight is tough. Or it can be tough. If you've got a good reason, it can be pretty easy. This requires you have some kind of a counter balance against the desire to eat. For example, if you were going to be in a movie where you had to take off your shirt, this would be a pretty decent motivator. You imagine the short term pleasure of eating a big plate of chili cheese fries. But that short term, NOW, pleasure is immediately outweighed by both the positive and negative implications. IF you DO enjoy th
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun19Post.mp4 You don't have to look very far to find that modern dating is a raging dumpster fire. There are plenty of related problems in modern society. Crappy diets, crappy TV, short attention spans. One thing that is kind of new (relatively speaking) is the idea of binge watching. This wasn't a thing a five or ten years ago. When a new TV show is released, it's common to for folks to watch it ALL in one weekend. Imagine if you were a master chef. And you prided yourself in your culinary creations. So you got hi
  5. Why Being Yourself Is Excellent Advice: https://mindpersuasion.com/be-yourself-is-excellent-advice/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July23Loop.mp4
  6. A very common ideal is to be outcome independent. This is true in sports, sales, persuasion and seduction. In sports, this can lead to the coveted "flow state." When an athlete or musician is operating a very high state of performance, but at the same time not needing very much of their conscious minds. Everybody experiences this, but usually in unremarkable ways. Whenever you learn a new skill to the point of unconscious competence, this is essentially what happens. You are doing that skill, but since you've learned it "by heart," you don't need much of your cons
  7. Humans are driven by instincts. And we have been for a long, long time. Long before we developed self-awareness and language. What instincts? Things that keep us safe, and happy. Things that keep us out of danger. You don't need to learn to be afraid of snakes. Experiments on babies show that in the first few days, we are naturally drawn toward sweet smells and tastes. And we naturally turn away from pungent smells like garlic. Unless the baby's mother is a garlic eater, then the baby comes out naturally attracted to garlic. Because we are high
  8. I like to cook. But most of the time, I don't use any recipes. Once in a while, I'll find a decent one online. But I rarely follow it exactly. Long time ago, I took an "Asian cooking" class. I took it twice, two summers in a row. Same class, different teachers. The first teacher was very specific. Exact amounts. Exact temperatures. Exact times. The second teacher was much more laid back. Little of this, dash of that, and Bob's your uncle. Most of the time, when I cook, that's how I do it. Think of the ingredients, imagine ho
  9. Everybody loves to laugh. Nobody really knows why. But we can imagine a kind of split test. Like advertisers and marketers do. Send two different ads to two different zip codes. Then see which one works best. Keep the good one, ditch the old one. If you keep doing this, you'll eventually have a very highly converting ad. This works just as well on sales pages. Human evolution can be thought of as a very long, organically evolving split test. Every generation has people made from the previous generation. Of course, there are a few mistakes.
  10. Everybody loves a fantasy. One of the biggest inflection points of the hero's journey is in the beginning. Usually, the hero is offered an opportunity to go on a journey. But they turn it down. Later, something happens, and they are FORCED to go on the journey. We normal humans like this very much. Why? Because we all have a love-hate relationship with our comfort zone. On one hand, we hate that it's so constraining. We'd LOVE to be able to step outside of it and get some of the good stuff that we KNOW is out there. But at the same time, the id
  11. If you ever get stuck in a social situation and you don't know what to do, it's usually too late. Humans behave BEST when we are operating mostly subconsciously. Automatically. In sports, the coveted flow state is when you are operating at a very high level AND mostly unconsciously. When it seems like you are WATCHING yourself perform. This can happen socially as well. For most of us, this happens with close friends with whom we have a ton of built in rapport. This is when conversations flow and good times roll. But it is also possible to create this soc
  12. One of the biggest stumbling blocks to starting a conversation is knowing what to say. You see somebody across the room. You smile, they smile. You flirt, the flirt. But then the thought of walking across the room and starting a conversation keeps you stuck. What would you say? Or you're in line somewhere. Maybe somebody is cute in front or in back of you. You or they glance around, your eyes meet, and you give each other the universal "What's up" nod. But then the same problem pops up. What do you say? You may even go online in search of
  13. Imagine you were just about to walk into a party. And RIGHT before you opened the door, a super sexy person gave you a super sexy look. That would put you in a very GOOD mood. On the other hand, imagine the opposite. Right when you were about to walk into a party, a dog came up and peed on your leg. And the dog's owner, and all her friends, stood their laughing. That would put you in a very BAD mood. Most people accept this as normal. Stuff happens OUTSIDE of us. Then that puts us in a certain mood. That certain mood affects our behavior.
  14. Being an entertainer is a valuable skill. Most of PUA tactics include demonstrating value. The bulk of the Mystery Method involves doing various bar tricks. Magic tricks, sleight of hand tricks, etc. They all have the same thing in common. Of the person you are trying to impress not needing to do anything. If you have plenty of tricks up your sleeve, this can be a fantastic way of standing out. Since most goofs CAN'T, even a couple of tactics can work wonders. But they do have their drawbacks. For one, if you happen to REALLY hit if off with somebod
  15. There is one powerful technique that can significantly bolster your frame. This is very easy and requires zero thinking. But it's something that many people are uncomfortable doing. Yet at the same time, you'll find this one technique is something VERY powerful speakers can do. And that is to PAUSE while speaking. A common reason for exhibiting a less than strong frame is being nervous. And when we are nervous, we tend to speak quickly and swallow some of our words. We don't like social attention, so we want to get rid of it as quickly as possible. For e
  16. Groucho Marx famously said that sincerity is the most important thing in the world. And if you can fake it, you've got it made. A-list actors are very good at faking sincerity. This is why they get paid so much. Just looking at their facial expressions makes it seem real. The other night I watched a weird, low budget, alien, time travel movie. The acting was very good. In one scene, an actress had to look out her kitchen window, and make it seem like she was really seeing a glimpse of hell. Then she went back to normal. She had to go from a normal e
  17. There are two bad things that can happen if your level of skill is not correctly calibrated to your level of expectations. If you think you will get much more than your skills actually can, you'll develop a sense of entitlement. This can lead to a feeling that the world is rigged against you. You try something, expect to get a very good result, but only get a so-so result. But if you only have so-so skills, you should only get a so-so result. If you have so-so skills but expect amazing results, you'll feel cheated. The more you try, the more cheated you'll feel.
  18. Archimedes is a famous old school scientist. One of the things he's famous for is running down the street naked. Not the naked part, but what caused his excitement. The king was worried that somebody was scamming him. He'd paid to have a gold crown made. But he wasn't sure if it was gold or copper or a mix. And since way back then (ancient Greece) they really had no way of knowing. So he gave Archimedes the task of figuring out how. And as a scientist, he put his mind to work while he did normal things. And when he got into his bathtub, he saw the w
  19. I had a roommate once who decided to get into shape. He's been out of shape for a long time. And he decided to start running. He, like most people, did way too much too soon. Next time I saw him he had ace bandages on both knees. This is the source of the famous yo-yo diet. You see yourself in the mirror and get disgusted. So you make a VOW to lose weight. You start off with TONS of motivation. But the further away in time you get from that initial burst of motivation, the harder it is to maintain. When you had the initial burst of motivation,
  20. Most practice is easy, but boring. This is the main reason why few people do it. It's also why Napoleon Hill suggested having a "burning desire" was necessary. If you had a passive interest in learning the piano, for example, that passive interest wouldn't enough. You'd give up (like many people) rather quickly. Before you started practicing, it might seem pretty cool when you imagine being able to PLAY the piano. But the more you practiced, the more the REAL COSTS of being able to play would add up. When you imagine being able to play, you don't really have
  21. The body comes with a lot of systems that compliment one another. For example, there is part of our system that excites us, and gets us ready for action. And there is an equal and opposite part that calms us down, and gets us ready to relax and recharge. Very much like night and day. Two seemingly opposite sides of the same system. When you eat, it's common to become sleepy. It's kind of a shift from being outwardly focused and excited, to inwardly focused and relaxed. We can imagine how it might have helped our ancient ancestors. When they were hungry,
  22. Quantum physics is often thought of as mystical. It's also used to describe mystical things. But in reality, it's actually pretty simple. In English grammar, there is countable nouns and uncountable nouns. Countable nouns are things like penguins, bananas, and carne asada burritos. I went to the zoo and saw a lot of penguins. How many penguins? Seventeen penguins! Damn dude, that's a lot of penguins! On the other hand, there are uncountable nouns. Things that you can't count. Like water. I went to the ocean and saw a lot of water.
  23. There are many myths about fear. One common and very old one is that if you "do the thing you fear, the death of fear is certain." The problem with ideas like this is they SOUND fantastic. But they are very hard to verify one way or another. We like them because they feed the deeper idea that if we REALLY wanted to do something, we could. That "just" on the other side of that "fear" is everything we could ever hope. Just on the other side of that fear is relationships, money, love, success, fame, etc. We're just not quite "ready" yet to face our fears. B
  24. One thing we humans have better than any other animal is flexibility. For example, we have a ton of muscles. And if you work your muscles, they will get stronger. This is obvious. From a bio-engineering standpoint, this allows for an increase in efficiency REGARDLESS of what type of work a human would do. This allows for ancient humans to live in ANY environment, figure out what they needed to do, and do it. The more they did that, the more those specific muscles would strengthen and become much more energy efficient. Farming, climbing trees to get coconuts,
  25. If you were going to bake a cake, it would be pretty easy. At least if the recipe was simple. But even simple recipes can get complicated. The best chefs spend years learning their craft. The more complicated something is, the more time it takes to learn. The more room for error there is. And the more valuable high level skills are. Which is exactly why world class chefs make tons of money. They can create things that few other people can. Anything that is world class involves a lot of different ideas. You start by doing what you're told.
