  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct23Post.mp4 I've always been a huge science geek. Way back in Junior High school, I was actually a member of a science book of the month club. I'd read all kinds of books on quantum physics, relativity, etc. Of course, all the math had been stripped out and they were more like philosophy-science than anything difficult. Ever since the dawn of time, humans have been trying to figure out why and how stuff works. The more stuff you understand, the more stuff you can do. Nobody could go to the moon until they understood enough of the science. Some science, even though it's mathematically simple, is hard for us to wrap our monkey brains around. Like Einstein's famous equation. The one that says energy and matter are essentially the SAME thing. It's where nuclear energy comes from. You got a nucleus. You split it in half. You weigh both halves, and they add up to LESS than the original amount. The matter has been converted to energy. This is hard for our brains to wrap around. We look around and we see a bunch of stuff. When this stuff is MOVING, the two things together are energy. But at the quantum level, stuff IS energy. This is only something we humans have been capable of understanding in the last couple hundred years. Language is another curious thing. Most of us don't think much about it. We have these random thoughts, that we spit out with random words. We hear somebody else speaking. Their words go into our brains and create thoughts. Our thoughts make more words that go over into their brain. This cycle keeps going. Most of the time, it's completely out of our conscious awareness. Sure, we KNOW we are having a conversation. We KNOW the stuff we are talking about. But it's kind of like walking down to the 7-11 to buy a box of frozen burritos. You KNOW where you are going. You KNOW why you are going. But HOW you are going isn't something you think about. You just kind of point your brain in that direction, and away you go. But people who study language know there IS a connection between thoughts and words. And that by learning to pay attention to the structure of language, you can understand the structure of thought. Yours and that of others. Kind of like quantum physics for your brain. How can you use this technology? Any way you want. Offensively. Defensively. Playfully. Hypnotically. Seductively.

  2. Humans love stories. We've been telling stories to each other since the dawn of time. And these stories all have similar elements. Whether the story is about fighting dragons, or fighting government corruption, the overall structure is very similar. You've got the good guy, and the bad guy. And the good guy is never wholly good. He or she ALWAYS has some kind of flaw. And central to most stories, before the hero kills the bad guy in the world, he's got to face his demons within. How this is presented is different from story to story. Sometimes they have what Joseph Campbell calls a "belly of the whale" experience. Where they are physically constrained, and have to face some literal demon-type thing. Sometimes they have real world issues like broken relationships, addiction, or a physical handicap. However they are presented, they represent the same idea. We've all got demons inside, and we'll all face "bad guys" outside. And BEFORE we can face the bad guys outside, we've go to FIRST defeat the demons inside. There is simply no way around this. And like the crazy guy in the Road Warrior screamed, "You can run, but you can't hide!" Because that demon will always be within us, no matter where we go. And until you kill that dude, killing the bad guys outside is going to be difficult. Of course, the bad guys outside come in many forms. A job interview, something important you've got to say to somebody important before it's too late. But unless you destroy the demons within, that "bad guy" outside is going to seem incredibly terrifying. So, how, exactly, do you destroy the demon within? Just like you eat an elephant. One bit at a time. Start by identifying your inner fears. The fears you hope NOBODY ever finds out. Then slay them, one at a time. All your fears come with a specific structure. And once you understand the structure of your fears, you can dismantle them. Take them apart so they lose their hold. Unlike the movies, this takes time, and it is nowhere near as dramatic. You don't actually have to stand on a collapsing bridge shouting, "You shall not pass!" But you do have to the work. If you get busy, you can slay one inner demon per day. All by yourself, in the demon killing arena of your mind. The more of your inner demons you kill, the EASIER it will be to handle all those "bad guys" out in real life.

  3. How do you become more creative? This doesn't seem like it's something with any step by step process. One of the curious things about us humans is that everything is clear in hindsight. Much more than the "hindsight is 20-20" idea, where we always know what to do AFTER the fact. Many inventions took hundreds of years to happen. But after they were invented, they seemed so obvious. GoPro, for example, is a huge company. The idea of putting a camera on a stick seems pretty simple. Or on your head, or hat, or wherever. This is pretty much all you need to create a billion dollar empire. Take a couple of things that ALREADY exist, and combine them. When I was a kid, they had this goofy commercial for Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Some guy was walking down the street eating peanut butter out of a jar. (Seriously!) Another girl was eating chocolate. They crashed into each other and POOF! A new candy was invented. Dudes fought each other on horseback for hundreds of years before the stirrup was invented. You'd think somebody would have figured it out sooner. Since everything is simple in hindsight, having super genius powers of intelligence isn't required to be creative. All you need to do is think slightly differently. But even if you don't have a goal of coming up with a million dollar invention, you can impress plenty of people. It's pretty cool to be around somebody who SPEAKS creatively. This represents their creative thinking. Believe it or not, this is something that you can practice. Humans have pretty straightforward thought patterns. Our language patterns are very closely related to these thought patterns. And once you understand the structure, it's easy learn plenty of other structures. Funny thing about thought and language, is people tend to focus on the CONTENT, the stuff they are talking about, rather than the structure. But when you can see structure, and play around with structure, people will see you as a creative genius. Because you will be. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
  4. A long time ago, all societies had what is called an "oral tradition." Long before writing was invented, people had to maintain the "narrative" of who they were as a collection of stories and myths. And the only way they could keep these intact was to keep telling them over and over. Every tribe had a couple of storytellers. And these storytellers weren't thought of as high priests or anything. They were just the oldest guys who told stories to the rest. Then when kids grew up, they would more or less "self-select" for the storyteller of the next generation. Whoever could remember the best, whoever could speak the most elegantly. But then it all changed when writing was invented. This also happened when societies got really large. No longer were the stories of any society kept by the people. They were maintained by high priests with special books that only they could read. This is generally what happens when a new technology comes along. It's hoarded by the elites, and generally used to hold power over the masses. Imagine what it must have been like. Everybody only saw these high priests occasionally. And when they came out and read from special "books" (although nobody had ever seen a book before), it was like listening to god himself. They must have been thought of as wizards or magicians. Which gave them an extraordinary amount of power. Power was held in a very small groups of elites for a LONG time. Eventually the printing press was invented, and everybody started reading. But even so, there is much more to words than most people realize. Words are representations of ideas. And most people simply take ideas at face value. But any idea can be looked at from many different perspectives. And since most folks only take words at face value, when you can learn how to see all the different potential meanings in a single idea, it will be like having wizard like power. Most people talk about the same things over and over. And they have the same opinions about the same things. Over and over. Until you come along and show them all the different ways ANY thought or idea can be interpreted. This can give you extraordinary power over others. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
  5. People are consumers of ideas. We crave information in all its forms. Social media, TV, conversations with others. The more compelling and interesting the information is, the better it feels. Kind of like food. We like food that tastes good. We don't like food that doesn't taste good. A long time ago, this was tightly calibrated. The stuff that tasted good was healthy and kept us alive and kicking. Meat, fat, fruits, veggies, nuts, roots, etc. Stuff that didn't taste good was stuff that was dangerous. Dirt, tree bark. We didn't have to think much. Just consume what tasted good, and avoid what didn't taste good. Our brains evolved to see information the same way. Stuff that "felt good" tended to be helpful. Stuff that didn't "feel good" wasn't so helpful. A lot of this information came from non-verbal communication from others. Today those ancient social signals come from social media. Which is why it's so addicting. Just like processed food, it tricks us into thinking it's healthy. But another thing we enjoy very much is different content. This why we love stories so much. Ancient people's lived in some pretty boring environments, compared to today. So guys and gals that would spin interesting tales about nature, the gods, us and our purpose were in high demand. Similarly, people today that can spin interesting tales are in equally high demand. People that can come up with an interesting take on common things. Most people say and think the same things. Over and over. And most people comment on those same things the same way. Over and over. But it is pretty easy to take the same basic ideas, that people keep saying over and over, and flip them around in some interesting ways. So interesting nobody has ever heard of them before. Which will make you a very in-demand person. People will listen to your take on things and get that feeling of enlightenment. Of seeing things for the first time. Of finally, "getting it." Think differently, speak differently. And be recognized above all. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
  6. Human fears are part of a very useful system. Unfortunately, like most of our instincts, they aren't so helpful anymore. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Way back in the day, always being hungry was a survival benefit. Not just being hungry. But eating as much as you could. We all have the experience of not thinking we're hungry, but then we take a couple of bites of something and then we can't stop. This is easy to understand from an instinctive standpoint. Whenever food was available, it made sense to eat as much as possible, so we could store the extra energy. This happened without us having to think about it. So when you don't really feel hungry, and you take a bite, your "energy storage system" sends a signal that makes us store as much energy as possible. Of course, this system was calibrated when food was very hard to get. Now it's everywhere. And most people are overweight as a result of ancient instincts being surrounded by an abundance of food. Another useful instinct is fear. A modern "truism" is "most of my fears never happen." Most people tend to think of this as silly humans being afraid of things that don't exist. But in reality, being OVER-AFRAID was also a very useful survival trait. Way back in the days of hunter gathers, being afraid and running away, even if there was only a ten percent chance of the fear being real, was very useful. Because all it takes is to be wrong once, get eaten, and you won't live long enough to pass on your genes. Consequently, the people who passed on their genes were the ones who ran away from POTENTIAL danger the quickest. Unfortunately, just like our hunger instinct, our environment is VERY DIFFERENT than it was long ago. Most fears today are social fears. They are much more complicated. Back then, we saw something yellow moving, and figured it could be a tiger. Most of the time, it was a yellow flower, or something else. But the fear response to REAL physical threats was very quick. Since modern fear responses are usually in social situations (any time when we imagine talking to somebody) they take a while to build up. This means that social fears are the EASIEST to re-wire. Because the opposite of social fear is social success. This means love, money, sex, and plenty of other good stuff. In the moment, all we can imagine is the bad stuff. But once you rewire just a few of those social fears, you'll start to automatically imagine the good stuff. Which will not just eradicate the fears, but make you feel the opposite. Meaning when you imagine any potential social interaction, you'll feel POSITIVELY compelled to take advantage of it. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
  7. Fear is an interesting concept. It's an ancient instinct, and like all instincts, it compels us to certain actions, so we don't have to think. Perhaps there was an ancient race of people who sat down and calculated everything, like Vulcans, but they were too slow and they all got eaten. Instincts work because we don't HAVE to think. And they are very much based on the "better safe than sorry" strategy. Meaning if you see a yellow flower waving in the wind, it will induce fear (fight or flight) and you'll run away. Because you're instincts figure it COULD be a tiger, the rule is run away first, and think about it later. Just taking the time to decide if it were a tiger, (which would require conscious thinking) would be too long. This means that you can't OUT THINK your fears. This is one of the main ideas behind the three second rule. It's got nothing to do with the person you are approaching. The idea is to get moving BEFORE your "fear instinct" has a chance to change your mind. And as I'm sure you're well aware, the LONGER you wait, the HARDER it gets. You can't OUT THINK your fears, but you CAN reframe them. Consider a social situation. You see a person you'd like to approach. Then your brain calculates EVERY POSSIBLE OUTCOME. And comes up with a "best case," a "worse case" and a probability. Just like with the yellow flower. Since we can't eat flowers, there is absolutely NOTHING to be gained by approaching carefully. And since tigers are about as dangerous as you can get, running away, even if we are pretty sure it's a flower, is the right choice. But with people, it's a little different. The fear (or more appropriately, anxiety) that bubbles up when thinking about approaching somebody is NOT NEARLY as terrifying as getting eaten alive. But it's still there. But it's vaguer, and slower. You're brain's got to do a LOT to become anxious. It's got to check your memory, it's got to think through all the things YOU might say, all the things SHE might say, and then come up with an answer. The three second rule works because if you start moving within three seconds, your brain is STILL trying to figure out how to feel. Three seconds is like a magic window of opportunity. But there's a way to make it MUCH easier. To program your brain so anxiety NEVER happens. And not just in social situations, in ANY situation. (except with REAL danger, like tigers) And fear based on any communication with any person can be OBLITERATED. By rewiring your fear circuitry in your brain. Once you do that, ANYTHING is possible.

  8. Voltaire is famous for saying, "Give me ten minutes to talk away my ugly face and I'll bed the queen of France." Humans have been around for a long, long time. But spoken language for only a little bit. Written language even less. But communication is as ancient as the hills. Crows caw at each other, and the frequency of the caws are important. Slow, drawn out caws mean one thing. Quick caws in succession mean something else entirely. If you were hiking through the jungle, and you happened across a silverback gorilla, you'd know what to do. You wouldn't fight him. You wouldn't run. You would instinctively lower your eyes and become as passive as possible. Even if you're hiking in the local mountains and you see a wild animal, you would know instantly that making any sudden moves is not a good idea. This means that we know intuitively exactly how to communicate with a wide range of non-human animals. It may seem silly to see standing frozen and quiet as communication, but it is intended to convey a message to the receiver. More importantly, that "message" is hopefully going to create a specific outcome. In the case of the gorilla or the other wild animal, the desired outcome is not to be killed or eaten. All communication is essentially the same thing. We see another "animal" (usually another human) and we INSTANTLY have an idea of what we would like THEM to do. And we come up with our best "guess" of how to make that happen. The problems start when we humans assume that outcome is mostly dependent on the words we use. But words are largely irrelevant. One way to see this is when they do studies on humans. They put us into groups. And we ALWAYS form hierarchies. Quickly and subconsciously. Everywhere we go, we form hierarchies. Consider that we humans are ALWAYS doing that. Sending and interpreting signals. Unconscious, non-verbal signals. So we always know where we stand in the social hierarchy. This means we've got good news and bad news. The BAD news is most of the time, before you even open your mouth, all the other people in the room, including you, have already determined WHERE you are on the social hierarchy. This is highly correlated to your frame strength. The stronger your frame, the higher you are. And vice versa. So if you see a cute person across the room, before you even make your way across, he or she has ALREADY DECIDED on your frame strength. You've made a first impression before you even open your mouth. Now the good news. The REALLY good news. There are some simple exercises you can do in the safety of your own home (and your own mind) that will consistently IMPROVE your frame strength. And just like physical exercises, the more you do, the stronger you'll get. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
