  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan30_Post.mp4 One of my favorite insights comes from an economist. From way back in the 1800's. This guy, Bastiat, said: It's not what you see, it's what you don't see. This means in a complex society with tons of inter-dependent variables, it's very hard to understand even a fraction of what's going on. From his perspective, he was talking economics in the context of political decisions. Politicians want votes. So they promise things to get votes. But the things they promise are very vague and undefined. And this invariably sets off the "law of unintended consequences." Whatever the political goofs TRY and do, the opposite almost always happens. My favorite example of this is referred to as the "Cobra Effect." Once upon time, India had a cobra problem. So the politicians came up with a genius plan. Pay ten bucks for every dead cobra. Pretty soon all the cobras will be gone, right? Not so fast. What do entrepreneurial types do when the government is paying you ten bucks for a dead cobra? You start raising cobras! Once the government figured this out, they stopped the program. The net effect was they'd created TWICE as many cobras! Doh! This is what happens when dudes in charge try and lay down the law. We silly humans, with our slippery brains will find out ways AROUND the law. We humans are always looking for an angle. To get better stuff with less effort. This is because we live in a world that is WAY too complex for our monkey brains to understand. Even weather patterns cannot be predicted. And they have only a few interdependent variables. So nature's response was to give us these self aware, monkey brains that are ALWAYS scheming and dreaming up new ways to get stuff. And when you learn a few linguistic patterns that can help this progress along, conversationally, you'll be a dream come true. This exact same process that can allow us to argue around and around in circles can be applied to creating BETTER and BETTER feelings. Just like in a big, huge, impossibly complex city, there are MANY ways to get from here to there. And in your brain, and in their brain there are plenty of ways to get them from where they are, to where you want them to be. All you need is a few pseudo-logical linguist chains, and you start building links. Idea A to idea B to idea C etc. Their brains, and your brain are doing this all the time anyway. Learn a few linguistic links, and take them on a happy ride. Where EVERYBODY gets a happy ending. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/slippery-slope-language/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan29_Post.mp4 One of the most sought after experiences among competitive athletes is the flow state. Musicians and other performers experience this on a different level. The flow state is when you are operating at a very high level of competence, but you are unconscious. Not in a trance, (or passed out) but you are flowing without needing your conscious brain. Most of us experience the flow state while doing more mundane things like doing laundry and making grilled cheeses. These are things that are learned skills. Learned to the point of unconscious competence. Meaning we can do them without our brains. But for pros, whose careers require they practice for hours a day, they do this with HIGHLY trained skills. Not only highly trained skills, but highly trained skills used in a competitive environment. When your making a burrito or folding your clothes, the burrito ingredients or your unfolded clothes just sit there. They aren't fighting against you. But in a competitive sport, you have ZERO idea what the other guy is going to do. So when you reach a flow state in this environment, it's like magic. A continuous unfolding of uncertainty, the mathematics of which are too complex to solve even with the most powerful supercomputers. Yet here's our ancient monkey-brain, flowing like a dream. This is a bit different for performance arts. For performing, it's more like folding your clothes. Meaning there isn't anybody in your face trying to mess you up. Sometimes the opposite. If it's appropriate, and the audience is watching, you can use their energy to enhance your performance. And since this is unexpected, it's very much a flow state. A friend of mine did this while on stage. He was in a play that he'd practiced a kajillion times. But one night, when he was about to drop a "punchline," he broke a cardinal rule of acting. That is to NEVER beak the fourth wall. Breaking the fourth wall means looking DIRECTLY at the audience, or the camera. He said he didn't know WHY he did it. He just felt it, in the moment, spontaneously within the flow state. Instead of looking at his partner, he calmly turned directly to the audience and said it. And EVERYBODY, even the director, said it was PERFECT. Something you can never predict or even explain. You just gotta feel it. There is a way to CREATE this feeling in others. Conversationally. The natural FLOW state. Where one idea simply slides right into the next. All they need to do is follow your words. And they can passively enjoy one of the most sought after human experiences.

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan27_Post.mp4 Ever since I've been in high school, I've loved cycling. When I was in college, whenever I had some spare time, I'd go riding up and down hills. I liked riding up and down. Riding up was kind of like hiking. You keep grinding, and every once in a while you stop and look around and see how much higher you are. But going down is a different kind of thrill. A spending of carefully saved up potential energy. The fastest I've ever coasted downhill was 53 miles per hour. A perfect hill for coasting. Steep, long, and then flat for at least half mile. No intersections, no lights. So the ONLY limitation was how long I could coast without feeling the need to put the breaks on. It always reminded me of the song "Helter Skelter," by the Beatles. Particularly the line: "When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide, when I stop and I turn and I go for a ride..." This is about a roller coaster called "Helter Skelter." It's also considered to be the first "metal" song. But riding down hills is inherently pleasing. They've got these tours in place like Hawaii and other exotic vacation spots. They drive up you to the top of a huge mountain. Then you coast down on mountain bikes. The bikes have governors on the brakes, so you don't go too fast. So you can just relax, and coast, and enjoy the scenery. We humans LOVE being "taken" on rides. Physical rides. Emotional rides. This is why we love stories. We love to FEEL the emotions without having to take any real risks. Like riding down hill without needing to ride up. But sitting and watching an emotional ride is one thing. A fantastic movie or serial drama. But participating is something else. When you go out with your buddies for example. And one unexpected good thing happens after another. And everybody ends up happily ever after, if you catch my drift. We love to fantasize the same way. All of this is based on a kind of "pseudo logic" structure on our brains. The more you think about this, the more you can understand just how enjoyable it is. Thinking of happy thoughts naturally leads to happier thoughts. Even random conversations with friends follow this kind of pseudo logic. The more you participate in these conversations, the more fun they are. The more fun they are, the more you can start to remember this, now. And all those other times when you unexpectedly found yourself in a fantastic sequence of events and emotions. Even better is when you understand this linguistic structure. So you can be the one leading the conversation. From one happy emotion to another. Naturally, the more you lead the conversation, the more you lead the ideas in their brain. The more you lead the ideas in their brain, the more you be able to lead their actions. To any happy ending you like. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/slippery-slope-language/
