  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct30Post.mp4 I've always loved movies. Most of them suck, but some a pretty good. Particularly the way the ones make you think. And within the ones that make you think, I've found two basic kinds. Where you're left with a kind of puzzle, and you need to solve it. And you can solve it by asking questions like: "What did that final scene mean?" An example is the last scene from Inception. Was he still dreaming, or was he awake? This is one scene that can be interpreted in many ways. And like a well written
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept25Post.mp4 Magic tricks are cool. I've been fortunate enough to know two guys who were professional, up close, sleight of hand magicians. Up close meaning they would perform at places like this club in Hollywood called the "Magic Castle." And they wouldn't be up on stage. The rooms were set up like rooms at big, Hollywood Hills style house parties. And the guy would be sitting behind a table, and they would have very small, kind of "bleachers" set up. So you could have a straight line of sight from where you were to the d
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept07Post.mp4 Humans have a lot of instincts. Instincts that drive our behaviors. If you tried to fight your instincts with your conscious mind, you'd lose every single time. This is why the willpower diet will never work. Just deciding consciously to stop eating past a certain number of calories per day won't work. Your hunger instinct is the result of millions of years of natural selection. Since way before we were self aware humans. Whoever was the hungriest, won. They were the most motivated to find food.

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May05Post.mp4 One man's problem is another man's opportunity. The same situation, seen from a more resourceful mindset, looks much, much different than it does to somebody with a more limited mindset. For example, plenty of guys get at least a little bit upset when their lady gushes over movie stars or musicians or athletes. Some see this as a sign of disrespect. That she should refrain from speaking about such feelings. Or even having such feelings. Most guys have a false beliefs that they are super hero alpha killers.
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May01Post.mp4 The halo effect is a real thing. Unfortunately, it's one of this things most people have a vested interest in NOT believing. Pretty people very much don't want to believe it. They want to believe their success is due to something BEYOND their genetic gifts. But it's pretty simple, both how it works and WHY it works. Step one is to understand what specifically makes pretty people, particularly pretty ladies, so "pretty." "Pretty" in modern terms is "healthy and can have a lot of kids" according to ancient cave

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr17Post.mp4 We humans LOVE giving advice. It's so obvious what's wrong with people. If they would ONLY listen to us, all their problems would be solved. Unfortunately, we aren't Vulcans, or angels, or robots. We are primates that learned to talk. In the long scheme of things, we've only been talking, self-aware primates for a small span of time. What does this mean? This means our INSTINCTS do most of our thinking. It's very, very EASY to tell somebody what to do to lose weight, for example. "Hey, if you want
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr15Post.mp4 I've lived in, and have been to, plenty of countries where few people speak English. The first few times was pretty scary. It's one thing to be a tourist, and go to tourist places that are expecting you to not speak the local language. But if you're going to some neighborhood grocery store to buy something to eat, unexpected communication requires a lot of thinking. Two things that don't normally go together. Especially when they say something you don't understand, yet they are looking at you with a friendly, pleasan
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr14Post.mp4 One historian described the history of humanity as a scared and lazy people doing everything they could to become safer and work less. This sounds like a slam on humanity. But it's really true for ALL living creatures. There are two basic functions behind this statement. One is getting needed energy for survival. All animals need to do this. And they need to be as efficient as possible. Now, in our modern society, as much of a trainwreck it is becoming, this seems to be a no-brainer. You need food,
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr13Post.mp4 Why do we humans love stories so much? Not just stories, but storytellers? Maybe because they move us through some very powerful and enjoyable emotions. Way back in ancient Greece, they discovered the idea of Catharsis. Of being able to experience non-normal emotions, without having to experience the real and dangerous events that normally produce those emotions. Way back when they first started showing silent movies people were AMAZED. They actually believed that trains were going to come out of the screen.
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr11Post.mp4 There's a famous joke about a plumber. Guy has a flooded basement, so he calls the plumber. The plumber spends an hour in the guy's basement, but only looking around. Finally, he twists one connection, and it stops the leak. He charged the guy $500. The homeowner is a little upset. "$500? You only tightened on thing!" he says. "The $500 is not for the tightening. It's knowing WHERE to tighten," he replies. The opposite can happen too. You're in a conversation with somebody. You toss out a rem
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr10Post.mp4 I used to work at this place where we had a Friday food contest. It started with the regular donuts on Friday. Like in many offices, everybody would take turns bringing in donuts. Sometimes people would bring in bagels. But somehow, this ended up in a competition. Everybody tried to outdo the previous weeks' offering. Breakfast sandwiches, various homemade ethnic food. One guy brought in his famous chili. Gotta admit, it was pretty tasty. He couldn't wait to tell us his secret recipe. One
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr09Post.mp4 It's hard to communicate without using metaphors. Words themselves are metaphors. Auditory representations of mental pictures. One simple description can mean many things to many people. If I say: "Yesterday I saw a cute girl in the park with her dog." This sounds very specific. But every person who reads that will have a different idea of what each tangible nouns looks like. Even the ones that aren't mentioned. You'll imagine a pretty girl. You'll imagine a dog. You'll imagine a park.
  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug07Post.mp4 There are two "best case" scenarios or outcomes if you are proficient salesperson. One is to eventually start your own company. This is risky, but it can come with massive rewards. The guys who invented the Go-Pro camera, essentially a camera on a stick, are ultra rich. But in order to make Go-Pro cash, you've got get Go-Pro lucky. You've got to go through a ton of risk, rejection, years of trial and hustle error, all without a guarantee success. So being very good in sales is really just an entry ticket. W
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr06Post.mp4 Humans love to dream. Everything that exists today was once an imagination in somebody's head. Napoleon Hill talked about turning "thoughts into things." This idea is absolutely true, but unfortunately a little bit misunderstood. Yes, every single thing was once an imagination before it was real thing. Tables, chairs, basketballs, planes, telephones, racquetball courts, etc. Bees, ants, beavers keep building the same thing over and over. Humans are similarly programmed. Only we don't build the same thi
  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr05Post.mp4 What does it mean to be charismatic? There are a plenty of ways. Charisma is a general label. One that means the person labeled as charismatic is VERY enjoyable to be around. There are two basic ways to do this. One is to focus COMPLETELY on other person. Not just lazy, fake focus. But real, genuine interest in who they are. Not just their looks, but everything about them. Most of us can ONLY do this with people we are physically or otherwise attracted. But charismatic people can do this with
  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr04Post.mp4 If you rub your fingertip along the rim of a wine goblet, you can get it to "sing." If you hold the right note, you can break that same glass. This is difficult because you have to hold the EXACT frequency that the glass naturally vibrates at. There is a bay in Canada that has a HUGE difference between high tide and low tide. What do all these things have in common? Resonance. When you rub your finger along the tip of the wine goblet, you are "calibrating" the small "micro breaks" in the smoothness until it is t
  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar27Post.mp4 Structure is everywhere. Joseph Campbell found that most myths from around the world have the same structure. One he called the "monomyth." Commonly called the "hero's journey." Same basic structure, over and over. Similarly, most popular music has the same basic chord progressions. Once you tune your mind to hear these common chord progressions, you'll see them everywhere. Structure is something that we need to choose to see. It's not something we normally see. Even if you've studied music or
  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb13Post.mp4 Storytelling and hypnosis are very closely related. Therapeutic hypnosis and movies are essentially the same structure. You sit there and let another "entity" do your thinking for you. When you are in the therapist's office, he or she is talking, you've got your eyes closed, and your following along with their words. So long as their words are guiding you toward better and more resourceful emotions, you're pretty good. Similarly, when w watch a movie or even a TV show, we are letting the story do our thinking for

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan20Post.mp4 You can make a strong argument that written words are what gives us humans the ultimate advantage. Way back in the days of cave people, spoken words ruled. If you had the best ideas, the best ways of describing your ideas, you'd be in pretty good shape. If you could tell stories around campfire every night that would motivate and inspire all the young hunters, you'd be in pretty good shape. One way to think of these campfire stories is a way to slowly implant post hypnotic suggestions. Normally, when we think of post
