  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug15APost.mp4 Many loops or cycles are self sustaining. Both on a massive, life on Earth scale, and as individuals. You're in a good mood, so you smile at the ladies. Since you're happy when you smile, they smile back. Thereby enhancing your good mood and keeping the cycle going. One theory is that all life on Earth is essentially one gigantic self enhancing, slowly growing organic entity. This can seem pretty metaphysical. All kinds of energy flowing back and forth and growing at the same time. There's an idea tha
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July30Post.mp4 A common piece of advice is to leave everything on the field. If you are playing in a championship game, this is good advice. But sometimes, it's pretty bad advice. More so in some sports than others. Maybe in football, where each game is pretty important. And you've got a week in between games. But for sports like baseball, if you "left everything on the field" every single game, you'd risk injury. The COSTS (potential injury) wouldn't be worth the benefits, of MAYBE eking out a win when you might have ot
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May06Post.mp4 Back when I was in high school, I ran cross country. And even before that, I was an avid jogger. And I used to play these tricks on myself when I was out running. One of them was when I turned up my street, and only had a hundred yards left, I would play mind games on myself. I would pretend that I was running to the end of my street. But my house was only halfway up. This would give me some mental energy to push all the way through. This was to counter a habit I'd had of slowing into the finish line.
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr28Post.mp4 Magic Johnson was famous way back in the day for his "no look pass." The then Lakers played very well together. And combined with Johnson's super human skills, he could literally pass the ball behind him. He had very wide peripheral vision, as many athletes do. Bruce Lee was another athlete who had wide peripheral vision. Of course, in the movies, this was exaggerated, by his super wide eyes when he'd be beating the crap out of everybody around him. A more recent example is a gif that's been going around. O
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr12Post.mp4 You'll find feedback loops everywhere. Most of them are hard to predict. More of a general structure. The bigger the system is, the harder it is to predict. Like weather patterns, for example. A huge system with inter-dependent variables. One gigantic feedback system. Impossible to predict. This is why they can only give percentages when talking about rain. But from inside your own head? It's easy. Since you don't NEED to predict anything. You just need to have a direction. Not
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar20Post.mp4 Most things are best understood as a numbers game. You talk to 10 girls you might get a couple numbers. You send out a few dozen resumes, and you might get a couple calls. You stand in the batting cages and you might really connect with one out of three or four pitches. This CAN be discouraging. Especially if you focus on every single swing, or approach, or phone call. But the longer you can stretch out your perception, the easier it seems. Especially if you understand from the beginning that it's just a nu

  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb24Post.mp4 When I was in Boy Scouts, many, many years ago, we'd go on these weeklong backpacking trips once a year. We would each be assigned something to carry for the group. Stoves, food, tents, etc. But we'd also be assigned things for ourselves. Waterproof match containers, compass, first aid kid, etc. We each had a list we'd have to check off before we were allowed to leave. This a useful training exercise. To take a bunch of kids up in the hills for a week. And to train them to check and carry their own stu
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug27Post.mp4 In banking, they have something called "duration mismatch." When people make deposits, they can take them out at any time. These are called "demand deposits." But when banks lend out money, then lend the money for longer, fixed periods. Which means that on one side, they have, say $1,000,000 in deposits. These are deposits that could, theoretically, be withdrawn at any time. But that same money is lent out, but in fixed terms. Car loans, house loans, etc. These are for much longer periods. Theoret
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug25Post.mp4 For some things, practicing is easy. Very, very boring, but easy. Playing the guitar for example. Many people would LIKE to be able to play. But few people do. The reason is pretty simple. We humans won't do anything unless we believe the benefits will be greater than the costs. You might imagine being to hang out somewhere, strum a few chords and get plenty of positive attention. That imagination would be the benefits. And so long as the costs were vague, it would be a fairly strong desire.
  11. How To Improve Intuition: https://mindpersuasion.com/benefits-of-delayed-gratification/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/how-to-improve-your-intuition https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July20Loop.mp4
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July6Post.mp4 One way to think about sales is pure numbers. You can certainly increase your success by learning techniques. You can definitely increase your success by studying your mistakes, and the stuff that worked. It's kind of a "fantasy desire" to get 100% success, but this is impossible. So ultimately, it WILL boil down to numbers. If you talk to ten people, you'll make three sales, for example. Once that gives you a decent daily income, then you start to increase other things. Like how QUICKLY you can disqualify
  13. If you decided to sell hamburger for a living, you'd open a restaurant. If you wanted to fix engines, you'd open an auto shop. If you wanted to clean houses, you'd have a cleaning business. But if you're a doctor, you'd have a "practice." Why do they call it a practice? Because every patient is unique. Fixing a human is infinitely more complicated than fixing an engine. Imagine taking your car in to get the engine fixed. And imagine the mechanic looked at it, scratched his head and said: "Wow, I've never seen anything like this. I'll need to check w
  14. Everybody has a unique balance with respect to social comfort. Everybody has a point beyond which they'll start to feel social anxiety. Everybody has a point up to which they'll be more outgoing. When we are around friends, this balance is in one place. When we are around strangers, this balance is somewhere else. Regardless of who we are around, we tend to find our own equilibrium. Too much outgoing behavior will get us TOO MUCH attention, and cause us to pull back. Not enough will motivate us to speak up, and push out a bit. Both of these involve the i
  15. Our language, and our world, is more filled with metaphors than we realize. Problems happen when we mistake metaphor for reality. So long as we are using metaphors to talk ABOUT something, they're fine. But if we are trying to use metaphors as guiding principles, that's when we run into trouble. The red car idea is a common way to describe our filters. How we separate the important stuff from all the noise. For example, somebody doesn't notice all the red cars. Then they buy a red car. Then they suddenly notice all the red cars. Before, they didn't
  16. Imagine learning something easy, like juggling. Juggling is a common thing to learn in many self-development seminars. It's kind of "proof" that you can learn something new. It's difficult enough so that when you CAN juggle, you get kind of an excited feeling. That, "I never thought I'd be able to do this feeling." But it's also easy enough to learn in an hour or so. So long as you practice with enough focus. Even better is if you can get up and perform in front of the other seminar attendees. This gives you an "experience" of not only learning a skill y
  17. Having the wrong metaphor can ruin everything. Most everything we perceive is done through metaphors. Our brains have only evolved to really make sense of macro physics. Apples falling from trees, etc. But our brains are also capable of creating and interpreting hallucinations as if they are real. This is how we come up with mythology and other incredible stories. All from looking up at the sky and imagining that the stars are people. As soon as we imagine they are people, we start making up stories about how they interact. Used "correctly" these stories
  18. 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,
  19. Very often, something that feels good in the short term can add up to long term pain. It feels good to sleep in every day, and it sucks to get up at the crack of dawn. But it's easy to imagine how sleeping in EVERY DAY can slowly destroy your productivity. While on the other hand, getting up at the crack of dawn will tend to INCREASE your productivity. Similarly, food that tastes REALLY GOOD tends to add up. The better it tastes, and the quicker it tastes better, the worse it generally is for you. On the other hand, food that is healthy tends to be things you have
  20. Being able to deliberately hallucinate is a great skill. So long as you don’t start to believe in the hallucination. For example, way back when I was in JHS, me and my buddies would play golf. There was a nine hole course next to our school, and it was cheap. Only about $5 for a round. We all had hand-me-down clubs. One particular hole always gave me trouble. Because you had to hit it over the water onto the green. Because I knew the water was there, it made me nervous, and I always hit the ball into the water. Until one day my friend gave me some a
  21. Once I was on this backpacking trip. We were going up over the first pass. If you’ve never been on a multi-day backpacking trip, the first day is always the hardest. You drive up as high as you can and park. Then you walk up and over a pretty high mountain range. Once you get on the other side of that first mountain range, that’s when the fun starts. You more or less walk flat (at least compared to the first day). Huge valleys, no people, meadows, streams, lakes filled with trout, wild animals, etc. It’s all very much worth the first day. And on thi
  22. There’s an interesting theory from classical physics. Chaos theory. It basically says that while the laws of (classical) physics are deterministic, we can’t really predict very far into the future. An example is a two body problem vs. a three body problem. Two bodies is two simple masses in space orbiting around each other. Only those two, nothing else. With only those two, and the laws of gravity, you could take a snapshot at any given time, and using only their starting position, predict what they would look like WAY into the future. But with three bodies,
  23. There are plenty of metaphors about very small things having a significant impact. The plumber who knows where to tap, and gets paid a lot of money for that. The one snowflake that sets off the avalanche. The straw that breaks the camels back. Even Hemingway talked about how people go bankrupt slowly, and then all at once. All of these have a hidden idea of something slowly and continuously building below the surface. And then one “event” makes all hell break loose. But in reality, one straw can’t break a camel’s back. (unless it’s a REALLY weak camel!)
  24. If you wanted to be a world class guitarist, you’d need a lot of skills. Least of which would be guitar playing skills. You’d need business skills. You’d need stage charisma. You’d need skills of perseverance. You’d need promotional and marketing skills. Many people have the idea that they just need to be “discovered” to be famous. While that DOES happen occasionally, it’s about as likely as winning the lottery. If you look at any long term success, it will be a person that has a MASSIVE combination of skills. For example, you can find TONS of peopl
  25. Imagine a high school sports team, any sport, that never practiced. Maybe they had try-outs, and the coach chose all the players. The next time they got together was on game day. Maybe the coach would email them their positions the day before. Clearly, they would get destroyed. Most teams practice 95% of the time, and spend 5% on actual game time. And if you take into account all the practice the players do individually, the ration (practice:playing) is even bigger. Imagine if you knew you had to give a piano recital. But you'd never played the piano bef
