  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec10Post.mp4 A study was done on plenty of fictional books. To figure out what the overall structure was. And they found a certain short term pattern in nearly all of them. A good thing happened, and then a bad thing happened. Some of these were small, almost insignificant events, some were much larger. On a more meta level, you can find a bigger structure. Protagonist, Antagonist, build up, massive conflict, and (usually) happy ending. Or not "happy" ending, but a "satisfying" ending. Even thought some characters might not make it, the ending has a feeling of "completeness." One of the songs by the Beatles has an very huge ending. "A Day In The Life," has a huge orchestral buildup in the end. The buildup ends on a chord of MASSIVE tension. Then there is a pause, and FINALLY, the release. This a very "satisfying" ending. The tension is resolved. This is in most music, down to the chord progressions. Tension followed by release. Cycling throughout the entire song. Now, why do we humans CRAVE this kind of thing? You might wonder which came first, story structure or human nature? Or how, specifically did "they" create fiction and music and poetry to MATCH our deep emotions so specifically? It's the same basic process of natural selection. Imagine a group of ancient cavemen way back in the day. Kids would grow up listening to a bunch of different stories around the campfires. Some stories would be EPIC. The kind that stirred their emotions, and lay awake at night under the stars with ONE powerful dream about the hero of those stories: "When I grow up, I'm going to be JUST like him." On the other hand, there were likely stories that absolutely SUCKED. The responses to those stories were much different. Namely: "Dude, WTF?! That story was LAME!" Here's the natural selection part. When all those kids grew up, and it was THEIR turn to tell stories around the campfire, which stories did they tell? The ones they remembered. The ones that stirred their emotions. The ones that stirred their most POWERFUL emotions of ambition, love, loss, anger, fear, hatred, and the final satisfying ending. Not the lousy stories that didn't make any sense. Stories, movies, music, all art has similarly been passed through this organic, natural selection filter system. What's the META takeaway for all this? Humans are EMOTIONAL. The more profoundly you can move their emotions, the more they'll admire you, want to be around you, and follow you. But most people today are emotionally crippled. Most of us can only share a very small range of emotions. Learn about, appreciate and be comfortable expressions all your emotions, and you don't have to worry about anything else.

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct06Post.mp4 Bees are pretty cool. At least when a few hundred are not chasing you and trying to sting you to death. But the way they get food, and share information is fascinating. They all go out in different direction, looking for food. Then they come back and "share" their information. How, specifically, they share this information is the cool part. They all take turns doing a bee "dance." They fly around in a figure eight. Everybody takes turns doing their figure eight dance. The SIZE of that figure eight is related to the AMOUNT of the food they found. So whenever has the largest figure eight, found the most food. But WHERE that food is located is ALSO embedded into the figure eight. The direction (East, West, etc.) AND the distance, are also embedded into the figure eight. Based on the 8's angles. Z axis, Y axis, etc. This, of course, is all programmed into the bees DNA. Since they are insects, it's more or less automatic. Humans, more or less, do the same thing. Except when WE went out hunting, we could remember EVERYTHING. What we caught, how we caught it, all the details. We have language and memory. Not just individual memory, but a COLLECTIVE memory. All it would take is ONE dude to find and kill a never before seen animal. And he could explain exactly where he found it, the type of environment it lives in, the kind of tracks it leaves, the kind of food it likes, AND the best way to sneak up on it and kill it. This would go from HIS brain, to EVERYBODY's brain, through language. Then the next day, everybody could go out and use that memory, based on somebody else's words, and reproduce that same outcome. Of killing that same animal. This is the power of the human brain. We can listen to somebody else's WORDS. Those words will create a visual imagine in our brain. Then later, we can use that visual image as a TEMPLATE. A trial and error ideal outcome. Even better is we can MAKE UP stories and use those as templates. Stories of heroes and monsters and victories. We live, today, in a world FILLED with ideas. Some FANTASTIC, most average, some really, really lame. Your BRAIN can do work wonders with all those ideas. Take all the ideas out floating around. Way back in the day, the "collective memory" was only a couple dozen people. And the only way to add to this collective memory was by talking and listening. Nothing was recorded. Today, the collective memory is BILLIONS of brains. And EVERYTHING is recorded. This means you take any collection of ideas, put them your brain, and mix them together to create something NOBODY has ever seen before. Needless to say, your BRAIN is your best resource. Master THAT part of you, and conquer everything. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/mental-strength/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept21Post.mp4 Once when I was in college a bunch of friends and I went camping. Car camping. The kind where you load up a bunch of people and food and beer and drive to a campsite. We played all kinds of campfire games. One of them was this weird storytelling game. The rules were not explained, which was the point. The game was to try and figure out the rules as it was being played. Once you figured out the rules, it was very easy. AND very enjoyable, so long as at least one person DIDN'T know the rules. Everybody took turns telling a goofy story. But the story had to include all the people sitting around the campfire, but as characters in the story. The stories were a utter confusing nonsense, but ended in a big mystery. And when the storyteller was finished, they always asked a whodunit question: "Who ate the peanut butter?" The secret rule was whoever talked FIRST was the person who did it. As more and more people figured out the rules, it became more enjoyable. Especially as we kept drinking. Most games are supposed to have rules. There are many different kinds of rules. The kinds imposed by others. But even these "rules" are really recommendations. Like "do not enter" signs. Or speed limits. These are clearly posted rules many people chose to ignore. Some rules are implied, and not posted. But very, very few people would ever imagine breaking these. Like when you're paying for your things at the supermarket. You could, theoretically, reach over, grab some cash from the register and bolt. But as soon as you did that, life would suck. Other rules are not set by humans, but by nature. Like what goes up must come down. I watched a movie recently where a woman wanted to make it look like her husband beat her. She took a big monkey wrench, tossed it in the air, and waited for it to come down and hit her in the face. Theoretically, if she had super strength, she could have thrown the wrench with so much force it would have reached escape velocity. Which means even gravity has limits. By understanding what those limits are, we can go into space. Escaping the "what goes up must come down" rule. Many rules are like this. The better you understand them, the more you can figure out ways around them. Other rules are like the campfire game. The more you understand them, the more fun you can have.

  11. I was watching a movie the other night on Netflix. And I usually do, I like to read the reviews while I watch. Most of them said the same thing. The movie was much different than the book, but they hit on the same emotions, so the overall effect was just as powerful. The words we use to describe movies, books and other stories are an indication of how we feel about them. If the movie "moves us" what exactly does that mean? What is being "moved?" Most people agree that it's our emotions that are being moved. Hopefully all over the place. Movies are also described as if they were three dimensional objects. The movie was "deep" or "shallow." Or it "fell flat," or even "one dimensional characters." What is a "one dimensional character?" Something that is flat, not complicated. Simple. Easy to see. No depth. Some movies are described in terms of music. For example, that movie strikes a "chord." What is a "chord?" Several "notes" played at once that mix together well. So a movie that strikes a "chord" means it moves us on different emotional levels at the same time, AND it does so when emotions that "mix well." Movies and books are made to please a WIDE variety of people. So a bunch of different people from different backgrounds can "move" people equally effectively. What about in a one on one situation? If you know enough about the particular person (or people in general) you can do the EXACT same thing. Tell a simple story (or a collection of simple stories) that will MOVE them on a deep and fundamental level. The good news is that the CONTENT (the stuff the stories are actually about) isn't important. The most important thing is the underlying emotions the "content" elicit. And with the right set of skills, you can use very simple, everyday stories to create the SAME EMOTIONS as epic dramas. All within a two or three minute conversation. Being able to do this, of course, will set you apart, in their mind, from EVERYBODY ELSE they've ever spoken to, or ever will speak to. Learn More: Hypnotic Storytelling
  12. I used to have this friend. We'd get into these long rambling conversations. And invariably, about an hour after we'd been talking, he'd want to know how we got there. Meaning he wanted to back through our conversation and trace every topic and how each topic morphed into the next. Try that sometimes, after a ten or fifteen minutes. It's pretty mind boggling. Life is just like that. Many of us dream of a step by step sequence where we KNOW what the outcome is going to be. Unfortunately, it RARELY works out like that. Ask any ultra successful person, and they'll say that one of the key components is go just keep following whatever is working. If you try to force "the market" into your way of thinking, you'll have a hard time. This is why market research is crucial. Imagine somebody who loves Mexican food, so they open a Mexican restaurant. But if they'd done their market research, they would have found that there are already three Mexican restaurants in town, and they are struggling. Now, most people aren't ready to open up a business. But keeping any open mind for any new ideas is crucially important, for any endeavor, even if you just want to enjoy life. Many successful businesses were started primarily because of the relationships of the people that started it. Nobody really has an idea for a business, and then goes out to find people to help. It's usually the other way around. Everybody's got a set of skills and a bunch of half-baked ideas. It's when certain people get together, and mix all those skills and half-baked ideas together is when life changing events happen. You can think of this as being a "Social Entrepreneur." Meaning you go out to meet people simply because meeting people is fun. It can also lead to lifelong friendships and relationships. And it can also lead to billion dollar business ideas. It all starts with your ability to mingle with others, and make magic happen. Click Here To Learn More
