    Why Most People Fail

    Economics is something few people actively study. They don't teach it in school. And unless you are going to major in economics, chances are you won't take any official courses. Yet understanding economics is essential. Because economics allows for an understanding of human nature. Of human decision making. Many suppose the reason they specifically DON'T teach economics in school is so it's much easier to con us. The MAIN THING economics FORCES us to understand is what things costs. And that is the ONE QUESTION those in charge don't want us to ask. They'd rather promise us stuff so we NEVER wonder what that stuff is going to cost. But EVERYTHING cost something. Either now, or later. But a deeper idea in economics is the idea of diminishing returns. Imagine you're really hungry. Imagine it's your ONE cheating day per week. And you are about ready to eat a HUGE plate of carne asada nachos. All week you've been eating boiled chicken breast and cabbage. The FIRST BITE of carne asada nacho is going to be DELICIOUS. As will the next couple of bites. But as you keep eating, each successive will be LESS and LESS delicious. Pretty soon you'll reach a tipping point. Where each bite is not only not delicious, but painful. This is the law of diminishing returns. You KEEP doing the same thing. But the BENEFIT (the returns) keep getting less (diminish). If you have ten days off from work, each day is going to be a LITTLE less rewarding than the last. If you slip into a hot bath after a long day's work, each minute will be LESS relaxing than the previous. This idea will OBLITERATE any goals you have if you don't understand. It happens like this. On DAY ONE of your plan, your motivation is HUGE. The imagined benefit is HUGE. The imagined COSTS of getting that goal are small, since you're just starting. But each day you go forward, something happens. The costs INCREASE. They move from imagined, to real. The imagined benefit DECREASES. Each day you imagine the benefit, the law of diminishing returns kicks in. And makes it seem less and less valuable in mind. The visualized BENEFITS are decreasing over time. The actual COSTS are increasing over time. When you started, and the benefit was HUGE, since you'd JUST STARTED to imagine them. The costs were SMALL, since you could ONLY imagine them. But each day, the costs increase, and the imagined benefits decrease. Pretty soon you reach a tipping point. Where the COSTS are LARGER than the benefits. And it's NATURAL at this point, to give up. This is why nearly EVERYBODY sets goals. But very few people ACHIEVE goals. Turns out the entire self-help industry is FILLED with misconceptions. Luckily, once you understand basic human nature, you can create a much better plan. One that will make success much more natural. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  2. Understanding human nature is very helpful. Both from an insider's view and from a competitor's point of view. It's good to understand human nature from inside your own brain. It's also helpful to understand human nature so you can keep a close eye on your competition. As they say, you could keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. Now, they aren't always going to be ENEMIES, but you will ALWAYS have competition. It can be friendly competition, but it will be competition. If you see your best friend waiting to interview for the same job YOU are interviewing for, he is your friend AND your "enemy" at the same time. They aren't going to hire both of you. EVERY SINGLE THING you want that isn't abundant is going to be also wanted by a lot of other people. That one girl or guy you've got your eye on is also desired by many others. That one house in that one neighborhood is always desired by many others. That one idea you have to start a business around is likely also thought about by plenty of others. Unfortunately, plenty of our competition is very crafty. Once I had a job interview for a VERY NICE job. I had to talk to about six people. All but one was fairly straightforward. They asked me hard questions, and I gave them decent answers. Except for one guy. He was VERY FRIENDLY. Asked me very easy questions. Even got me something to drink. His strategy was to find out what I REALLY thought of his product. See, I had worked for a competitor at the time. But this job was a level up both career and income wise. Only I believed that their product was not quite as good as the one made by the company I worked for. And this guy wanted to find out what I REALLY believed about their product. And he did so by carefully, covertly, and deliberately lowering my guard. He even acted like he valued my advice. In doing so he "tricked me" into being MUCH MORE OPEN than I wanted to. And because of that one conversation, I didn't get the job. It can be very tempting to believe what others tell you. Especially if they are telling you EXACTLY how to get what you want. But in reality, the ONLY WAY to figure out exactly HOW to get what you want is by looking inside your own head. Understanding your OWN skills. Developing your OWN strategies. This can be difficult, but it's the ONLY way to realize true success. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  3. Most normal people have issues with food. Either eating too much, or not the right kind. If you've ever tried to lose weight and couldn't, it's one of the most maddening situations. A common situation is as follows. You have a strong DESIRE to change your body. Maybe less fat, maybe more muscle. And so you do some research. You want to find out HOW to satisfy that desire. When you read the material, it sounds obvious. Scientific. It makes perfect sense. But then you run smack in the face of harsh reality. You KNOW what to do. But you can't do it. Sometiems this is when you KNOW you need to under a certain number of calories per day, but you can't. Part of you wants to abstain, but another part wants to eat. And the part of you that wants to eat seems to always win. This is the same battle that happens in nearly all areas of life. Part of you wants something. But another part of you, a much stronger part of you, makes doing that impossible. You see a cute girl across the room. She even smiled at you a couple of times. All you need to do is walk over there and start talking. But you can't. You come up with a billion LOGICAL SOUNDING reasons. You don't know what to say. Or you convince yourself that she isn't your type. Both of these frustrating situations are of the same structure. You have a desire to create a certain outcome. A very STRONG desire. Either to lose weight, or gain muscle, or study more, or to make friends. But another desire always keeps you from doing it. The thing you WANT is nearly always a long term desire. The thing that STOPS YOU is nearly always a short term desire. You want to study, but another more stronger desire makes you watch TV instead. You want to exercise, but another more stronger desire makes you stay in bed instead. Understanding that all these are of the SAME STRUCTURE is the first step. To see recognize that these short term, much stronger desires, seem to always OUT FRAME the longer, "higher order" desires. Once you understand the structure, you can fix it. And you fix it by SLOWLY strengthening the higher order desires. And by seeing them as things that need to be built slowly over time. There are plenty of ways out gain more control over these long desires. So will power is not needed. And frustration will vanish. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  4. If you don't know how to do something, it can be frustrating. When it comes to frustration, there is good frustration, and bad frustration. Good frustration is a natural motivator. A very low level "fight or flight" stimulus. And it makes us fight, but in a good way. The most common way is in sports. Frustration can lead to more energy. More energy leads to better performance. We can imagine how this might have been a few thousands of years ago. A hunter keeps missing, and gets frustrated. This makes him angry, which makes him MORE motivated to kill whatever he was hunting. However, like many of our other instincts, frustration can be mis-calibrated. If you are frustrated but don't know HOW to use that energy, this isn't good. This leads to stress and anxiety. There is a lot of ways this can happen. One is when you don't know what to do. Another is when you THINK you know what to do, and you do it, but you DON'T get the results you hoped. This is when you can do the same things over and over and think you'll get something different. Even worse is when somebody shows you how, and you try and copy them, but YOU get much different results than THEY get. This is common in any kind of "boot camp" training. You watch a guru do something, and he gets a fabulous result. Then you try and do the same thing, and fall on your face. The truth is that nearly all skills we humans want to improve, there are WAY too many variables to understand. Even something as simple as cooking requires a lot of practice. You can watch a step by step cooking show and get a completely different result. It's expected that something like cooking takes a lot of practice. But cooking is YOU and the ingredients. The ingredients just sit there. But most of the stuff we REALLY want (relationships, love, money) are WAY more complicated than cooking. But for some reason, we expect to learn them much more quickly than we'd expect to learn to become a decent chef. Maybe it's because a lot of "gurus" promise INSTANT or EASY results. They CAN be easy, but NOT instant. In fact, the SLOWER you go, the easier they are. The FASTER you go, the more variables you miss, and the more BAD frustration you'll create. So long as you keep away from the BAD frustration, you'll only have the good stuff. That makes going forward easy. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  5. If you did a survey of most successful people, you would find some interesting things. One is that most people never had ANY idea they would be successful in the way they were successful. For example, Jeff Bezos, the richest man on Earth, got started selling hardback books online. Now Amazon makes most of it's money from cloud storage. They are known for selling physical products, but that is a very tiny portion of their business. But if you asked Bezos twenty years ago, he wouldn't have had ANY IDEA that he'd be a billionaire from cloud storage. (True story: One of his biggest clients is the U.S. Government) Once I saw a movie of a concert the Stones did in San Francisco. It was for a fund raiser about ten years ago. Interspersed with concert footage was very old black and white clips. One of an interview with Mick Jagger in his twenties. The question was, "How long do you think you'll guys will be doing this?" His answer? "Dunno, maybe a couple more years?" Ask any couple who's been happily together for years and you WON'T find many stories of love at first sight. You will hear plenty of stories that sound like, "I never would have thought I'd be with somebody like this!" What does all this mean? That the future is INSANELY hard to predict. The most successful people had NO IDEA they would be successful the way they would. So, the money question: How can we REVERSE ENGINEER their success strategy? One clue would be to NOT be dependent on a SPECIFIC future. To have a very VAGUE drive. And combine that with a huge amount of flexibility of how we define success. This sounds OPPOSITE to what most goal books teach. Most goal books say we need to create a very SPECIFIC desire. To make it CLEAR in our minds. Imagine if Bezos ONLY allowed himself to make money by selling books! Combined with a VAGUE definition of success, the other critical factor is a DRIVE. A relentless drive to KEEP TRYING THINGS. See what works, see what doesn't. Keep doing what works, and keep changing what doesn't. The two most important factors of success are the drive, and the flexibility. If you can combine these two together, it's hard to fail. But you have to accept that your success won't be defined until you get there. And when you DO get there, you'll STILL want to keep going. So even the word "goal" is incorrect. Because goal implies a "finish line." And one common theme among all super achievers is they are NEVER finished. So get started. And NEVER finish.

    Science vs. Magic

    Economics is often referred to as the dismal science. It's easy to see why. It forces us to see exactly how much things cost. Not just in monetary terms, but in all terms. One thing you have to learn and apply in chemistry is the idea of conversation of matter and energy. One can turn one into the other (matter into energy or energy into matter) but you can't just poof it into our out of existence. So when you write down steps of a chemical reaction, you need to do a kind of bookkeeping. You have to make sure that the energy and matter one ONE side of the equation is the SAME as the energy and matter on the OTHER side of equation. This is true in chemistry, and it's true in financial accounting. In many movies there is the egghead character type. The non-emotional type who keeps the books of the criminal mastermind. He is treated almost like an untouchable wizard. Since he KNOWS where all the money comes in, and where it goes, he is an ESSENTIAL part of any criminal operation. He's also the most likely target of law enforcement. For example, Al Capone was a blatant gangster. He smuggled alcohol, he murdered people. But the easiest way to lock him up was tax evasion. Which required getting to his financial records. If you become a CPA (certified public accountant) you can make a LOT of money. If you think of a business as a organism, the money flow into and out of the company is the lifeblood of the company. So knowing EXACTLY where it's healthy and where it isn't is a very valuable skill. But it's also a valuable skill in everyday life. But this requires ditching any magical thinking, and making some very difficult thinking. Economic thinking. Dismal science thinking. But think of the alternative. Of hoping and wishing. Imagine if modern companies did that. Imagine they didn't hire accountants. They just bought stuff, made stuff, sold stuff, and hoped for the best. Naturally, they wouldn't last long. Imagine if you ran your own finances that way. (Unfortunately, many people do). You spend money until you can't. You use credit cards until you can't. You never sit down and check how much is coming in and how much is going out. In the short term, measuring everything is very, very difficult. But it is EXTREMELY difficult to achieve any kind of lasting success unless you do. The only alternative is to cross your fingers and hope for magic. There are, in fact, two words in "dismal science." Once you get past the "dismal" part, all that's left is science. Very predictable. Very repeatable. Very scalable. And you can use SCIENCE to build anything you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/goal-setting-sucks/

  8. They say a directionless arrow never misses its target. Meaning if you just randomly shoot an arrow without choosing a target, you can’t miss. On the other hand, if you shoot an arrow at a target, you most definitely CAN miss. Why would you want to shoot an arrow without aiming at anything? Maybe it’s fun. Maybe you like to watch the arrow sail through the air. Maybe you like to imagine your an archer in an ancient battle. None of those guys really aimed. They just sort of picked and angle and hoped for the best. With a bunch of archers on one side of a battlefield, and a bunch of soldiers on the other, you’re bound to hit something. Unfortunately, this isn’t a very good life strategy. Imagine a guy going out to meet girls. Ideally, he’d LOVE to end up with a sex party threesome with a couple of disease-free, porn star freaks. But most normal dudes will take whatever they can get. Which usually ends up not being much. This is like just shooting your arrow in a battle and hoping for the best. Instead, consider the idea of having an actual target. The threesome might be a bit too much. At least in the short term. Believe it or not, having a long term, “horizon goal” of having tight enough game to talk ANY group of females into a sex party is a worthy goal. One that is WAY out there. One that compels you to keep improving. The best way to keep improving is to choose very tiny, very achievable goals. Week one might be getting eye contact and smiles from five ladies. Week two might be getting a few short conversations. Week three might be getting some actual phone numbers. Week four might be going on one date. Most guys DON’T like this. It seems LONG and tedious. Most guys want the sex party RIGHT THE F NOW! But here’s the great paradox of life. The bigger your target is (sex party, for example) the less forward progress you’ll make. The smaller your target, the more RAPID you’ll make forward progress. This is a harsh question, but consider it. Instead of “sex party” swap out any equally desirable goal. Beach house, corporate president, etc. How closer are you to that goal compared to one year ago? Now imagine doing the slow, week by week plan. Assuming you’d stick to it, and make slow, gradual, tortoise like progress, how far would you be in a year? This is the secret to real tangible achievements. The kind that will make your friends ultra jealous. The slower you go, the faster you’ll get there. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-skills/

    Three Essential Truths

  10. Role models are absolutely essential. They're not something that is helpful, or useful. They are absolutely vital. Primarily because we humans MUST learn by copying other humans. Only in the past couple decades has it been possible to learn something so technical that you can sort of think your way through. But since the dawn of time, humans have been learning from other humans. Psychologists have DECADES of data that show this. But this is one of those things that we DON'T want to acknowledge. The mountains of data indicate our adult personalities are made up primarily from TWO sources. Our genetics, and our non-family peer group. Each one contributes about half. And as much as we'd like to believe, our genetics aren't very changeable. At least not yet. That leaves us with our non-family peer group. The people we hang with and learn from. Every parent KNOWS that one of the worst things that can happen to their kids is to start hanging out with the wrong crowd. Parents intuitively know that kids can "soak up" both good and bad behaviors. And once we humans soak up bad behaviors, it's hard to get rid of them. This is how unconscious learning happens. Unconsciously. It's not something we can choose to do. We do it whether we like it nor not. So our role models aren't only the kind that society tells us we need. But the people we hang around most of the time. This is also what the experts always tell us. If you want to be successful, hang around successful people. If you want to be the best hunter, convince the best hunter to let you tag along and learn from him. If you want to be the best athlete, hang around the best athletes. Humans in our deep creativity, figured out a POWERFUL way to make this easier than we think. Turns out our role models don't need to be real. They can be IMAGINARY. Napoleon Hill did this. He created his own mastermind group filled with historical figures. He would meet with them once a week. Actually have drawn out conversations. But you don't have to do that. In fact, there are PLENTY of ready-made mastermind groups. You can find them EVERYWHERE. These are the stories we humans have been telling each other since the dawn of time. Since humans discovered long, long ago, that if we carry around a huge collection of heroic role models, we'll be able to step up much better. Unfortunately, we've been conditioned to see these modern stories mental escape hatches. Entertainment only. But YOU don't have to. You can learn to use ANY story the way they were intended. As role models. Mastermind groups. Inspiration. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/hero/

    How To Become Elite

    There are two kinds of fear. Real and imaginary. Once upon a time, we only had real fears. Tigers, other people, dangerous terrain, etc. And through the long slow grinding path of evolution, we humans developed a pretty good strategy for dealing with fear. Better safe than sorry. Meaning if something was even potentially dangerous, it made sense to run first and ask questions later. This was balanced by our never ending need for food. So on one side, we were being driven forward by our instinctive need for food. On the other side, we were being driven back by our instinctive fears. Two things are very different today than they were before. One, getting most of our needs met is not so difficult. Food is everywhere. It's rarely, if ever, dangerous to get something to eat. Second, most fears we experience are social fears. Not real fear. Unfortunately, our social fears don't have a natural counterbalance. So the same strategy doesn't work so much. Kind of like our hunger instinct. Way back in the day, it made sense to ALWAYS be hungry. And to ALWAYS eat as much as we can, whenever we can. Because those opportunities to gorge ourselves were few and far between. Today, you combine our never ending hunger with the ease of food access, and you get a planet of overweight people. It's kind of the opposite of social fears. Losing weight is easy, in theory. You just recognize your hunger, but don't obey it. Obey your rational, conscious mind instead. Eat a couple thousand calories a day, and call it good. Obviously, this is WAY easier said than done. The same goes with social fears. Logically, rationally, there is NO REASON to be afraid of talking to strangers. Or speaking in public. Or trying new things. But just as it's hard to NOT EAT when you're sitting in front of an all-you-can-eat-buffet and you're starving (and all your friends are eating), it's just as hard to ACT when your brain is screaming at you not to. Which is why those that CAN do things like speak in public will tend to make a lot more money than those who can't. It's the ONE THING that doesn't require intelligence, or upbringing, or a STEM degree (or any degree) or any specialized knowledge. Just the desire and the persistence to practice. And if you add some hypnotic language patterns into the mix, you'll be in a very elite group of people. Capable of doing things few people even know exist. It's not easy to start, but there are plenty of ways to ease into it. All can be done safely, on your own, so nobody knows but you. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/public-speaking-hypnosis/
  12. Imagine if you had a web page. And the web page was a sales page. And you decided to do some split testing. Meaning that you would tweak something, and compare it to the original. This is also called "A-B" testing. You've got version A, and version B. You run each one and keep the winner, and ditch the loser. Let's say you did this every day for a few years. Meaning you ran several hundred A-B tests. Eventually, you would have a VERY high converting sales page. If any B version didn't do better, you'd ditch it. But if B version DID do better, you'd keep it. So you could ONLY increase the success of your web page. Now for the million dollar question. Suppose somebody came along, and wanted to STUDY your web page. The one that was doing VERY WELL after a few hundred split tests. And they asked, "Why is this page doing so well?" The ONLY answer would be, "I don't really know." Because you WOULDN'T know. All you would know is you kept trying random things, tweaking this font, changing that color, putting in a slightly different image. This is one of the DEEP PROBLEMS of studying success. We really have NO IDEA why things are successful. Sure, people could look at your winning web page, and guess, but it would only be a guess. This is why copying others who are successful is ONLY a starting point. The REAL ingredient to ANY success is trial and error. Every A-B test was a trial and error. Try something, and see if it works. If it works, keep it. If it doesn't work, try something else. This simple concept is the VITAL ingredient to ANY success. Unfortunately, this simple idea has been more or less BRAINWASHED out of the population. TV tells us if we feel bad, we should ask our doctor for a pill. Our politicians tell us that if something is wrong, it's somebody else's fault. Even schools try and convince us that all we need to do is show up and be our special selves and get our special reward for just being special. And that EVERYBODY is above average. Now, WHY would somebody want to do that? Why would somebody want to take away the MAIN REASON for success? Maybe they don't want competition? Maybe it's easier on THEM if we are all passive and obedient? Lucky for us, that trial and error learning is EXACTLY what it means to be human. To crave experiences. Learning experiences. When we keep trying new things, and see what works. This will take a while of getting used to, but once you fire up this ancient drive, you will feel on purpose.

  13. Here's a "trick" that will help you lose weight. Done consistently, it will help you make much healthier eating choices. It's based on an idea from economics. Whenever we choose between two options, we compare the good and bad for both of them. But we also compare our present state and our future state. One of the reasons we make unhealthy eating choices is the "good thing" is right here in front of us. While the "bad thing" is way out into the vague future. The idea from economics is that we can ONLY live in the present. Even when we imagine the future, we are imagining it from our present position. Let's say you're thinking of eating a bowl of ice cream. The present good of the ice cream choice is EASY to imagine. The present good of the alternative, the future as you imagine it now, is very weak by comparison. The "trick" is to spend time building up the strength of the future. Just take one minute to imagine the future you who only makes healthy eating choices. Imagine all the compliments you get. Imagine how it feels to put on looser fitting clothing. Imagine all the looks you are getting from sexy strangers. Imagine all the extra money and sex you'll get. This is not a "magic" trick, in that you only need to think about it once for a few seconds and suddenly never want to eat ice cream again. But if you take just one minute to practice visualizing a better future every time you choose what to eat, making healthier choices will slowly get easier. The real trick is to NEVER rely on willpower. Just imagine two choices. Ice cream now, and that better, healthier future you, as you imagine it now. Every time you eat ice cream (or whatever), just spend a minute focusing on that future you. Each time you do so it will get stronger and stronger. Then just wait until that future you, as you imagine it now, is stronger than the "eat ice cream" now. It's actually pretty simple. Imagine two futures, and then eat ice cream. Each time you imagine two futures, the healthier future, as you imagine it now, will become SLIGHTLY more compelling. All you need to do is wait until it is MORE compelling than the ice cream. When that happens, you'll know longer want to eat the ice cream. You'll just naturally decide, without EVER needing willpower, that you don't want it any more. You can even trick yourself. And see the ice cream as a REWARD for spending a minute comparing the two potential futures. And just wait until the healthier future becomes the reward. You can use this "trick" in plenty of different ways. Learn How: Seven Disciplines

    Tap The Flow Of Life

    There's an idea in economics and investing about money flow. It's not that main stream, so you won't hear about it on the news. But it's the idea that instead of the amount of money being the driving force in any given system (money supply, banks, actual size in GDP of an economy, etc.) that the flow is much more important. It's usually talked about how the Fed raising or lowering interest rates effects the stock market. Most believe it's the actual number, but a minority of economists believe it's the CHANGE in the number, not the final setting. It's easier to think of this in personal terms. Most people like the idea of having a ton of money in the bank. People feel that if they "had" a couple million, for example, everything would be "good." But consider that the "flow" of money might be more important than the amount of money. If you had two million for example, how long would that last? If you didn't get any interest, you could spend 40K a year for fifty years, and then it would be gone. For many people, that would be IDEAL. A dream come true. Trouble is it's like being hungry, and thinking that EVERYTHING is delicious. On the other hand, if you aren't really hungry, it's easy to have trouble choosing. Once you get used the idea of ONLY having 40K a year, that "dream come true" might turn into a trap. Once all of your money fears were gone, (you had 40K a year for 50 years) you'd start having money WANTS. Wants that you couldn't achieve, because 40K a year, while keeping your rent paid, you and your family well-fed and out of trouble, wouldn't exactly let you live the high life. Consider an alternative. That instead of seeking a certain amount, seek a certain flow. A consistent flow of money into your account. A flow that YOU can control. Clearly, this isn't easy. This does take quite a bit of work. Which is why so few people can achieve this. But even the ATTEMPT will make you feel alive. On purpose. Continuously striving forward, increasing your skills, learning more about the world and yourself. After all, I don't believe we humans were put here to "just" get our needs met so we could "be comfortable." We were put here to THRIVE. So Start Thriving: Entrepreneurial Mind
  15. All humans are natural entrepreneurs. What does this mean? Every time you think of doing something a little differently, you are using your entrepreneurial mind. Essentially, it's a matter of thinking of what you want, and looking around at your resources, and taking a quick inventory of your skills, and coming up with the most efficient way of making it happen. Often times we do this automatically and instinctively. Like if you're eating dinner with your friends, and you start to clear the table. As you're continuing the conversation, you're walking from the table to the kitchen. When you drop off the dishes into the sink, you're coming back to get more. What's on your mind? Consciously, whatever it is you're talking about. But unconsciously, there's a LOT more going on. You remember where the dishes are in the sink. You take an instant snapshot of the table and calculate the minimum amount of trips while simultaneously minimizing the chance of dropping something. If you have a job that is anything other than following a strict set of steps, you do this all day long. You consider what needs to be done, you figure out the best way to do it that will both maximize output while minimizing input. What's the difference between an entrepreneur who uses her natural ability to just live life, and entrepreneurs to take this skill to the next level, and get paid? It all has to do with the outcome. Clearing dishes, working on an assembly line, delivering packages, these all are pre-set outcomes. More importantly, outcomes that somebody ELSE has chosen. (or the situation, as in the dishes example). Entrepreneurs that get paid create their OWN outcomes. But they solve the SAME set of problems as assembly line workers and package deliverers. The problem is the INFINITE needs of other humans. Figure out way to solve people's problems, and get paid. You can get paid working for somebody else, or working for yourself. Or a combination of both. Just take what you do naturally, and think of different ways to apply it. Learn How: Entrepreneurial Mind
  16. One thing that trips humans up is our over-sensitivity to fear. This, of course, was useful back in the day when we had to chase our food and we are also being chased. But nowadays, our environment is much safer physically. But that fear instinct is still there. And it pops up in the strangest of places. One of them is that "negative" news sells much more than "positive" news. Anything negative gets a much stronger reaction. Stronger reactions tend to make us more willing to be responsive to the ads they show in between, next to, and smack dab in the middle of those "negative" news stories. Our fear instinct also makes us worried about things FAR MORE than their statistical probability. One common theme that has been around since civilization is the idea of the "end of time." No matter how far back you go in history, you'll find evidence that they (whoever THEY were, and whenever THEY lived) thought that the world was JUST ABOUT to end. Funny thing is, looking at history through their own understanding of science and technology, it DID seem like it was going to end. But the end never came. At least not yet! Back in the 1800, they actually believed that they'd pretty much discovered everything they could discover in "science." They figured everything else was just "details." But here we are, over a hundred years later, still chugging along. Sure, we've got plenty of problems. But just like the news, you can CHOOSE to focus on negative stuff, or you can CHOOSE to focus on positive stuff. One thing that is JUST as true today as it was a thousand years ago, is people need stuff. People want stuff. Not just basic stuff, ALL KINDS of stuff. About ten years ago, a guy had a bright idea of strapping a camera to your head. Cameras existed. Things that went around your head existed (I think they call them "hats"). But he put them together, and now he is a kajillionaire. All it takes is a SIMPLE idea, and you can become a millionaire. Sure, it takes a lot of trial and error. I'm sure the dude who invented the GoPro probably had a few ideas that fell flat, but he kept trying. But he certainly didn't need an advanced degree in science, or even business. Just an idea and a willingness to play around. This is has been the secret of human progress since the dawn of time. Simple people with simple ideas that turned into fortunes.

  17. Whenever you want to do something, there are always two main motivating reasons. Either to move away from pain, or toward pleasure. Usually it's a combination of the two. Not understanding which is which can kill any progress, and it's one main reason for what many people call "self sabotage." It works like this. Somebody has a goal, maybe to lose weight or make money or something. Some "thing" motivates them. They imagine what it will be like when they get there (skinnier, wealthier etc.) and assume that is their MAIN motivation. The problem comes when we don't take the time to examine the "negatives." The "bad" thing we are trying to move away from. For one, most of us don't like to acknowledge bad things. It also feels better, even to our secret selves, that we are motivated toward "big positive things" out in our future. Not a lot of us would want to admit that our main goal is to not suck so much. But it IS something painful (on some level) that motivates us to START. That positive thing out in the future has always been there. But without acknowledging the pain we are moving away from, guess what? As soon as we move a little bit away, it loses it's motivating power. And there we are, a couple weeks or months out, and we start to trip over our own feet. Because we didn't fully acknowledge the "pain" that motivated us in the first place, we might think we're doing something wrong, or are broken. The truth is that there is a LOT going on between where we start, and where we want to be. If we start out haphazardly (like most people do) then we'll run out of steam in a week or two. What's the answer? One technique is to always keep a clear focus on your present, plus or minus a couple weeks. Meaning you know where you've been the past week. You know where you're going the next week, and that's it. What about far out? Aren't we "supposed" to have clear goals for our future? That's the common idea. But since few people can predict the future, and the FURTHER out we get, the LESS LIKELY we'll have ANY IDEA what we or the future will be like, maybe there's another way. Maybe we ONLY need to know what DIRECTION we're going in. That way, wherever we end up, we'll be in a pretty good place. And we can let the future take care of itself, while we focus on the "now" (or a week or so out). And so long is our NEXT WEEK is a little better than our LAST WEEK, we'll always be getting better.

  18. They say experience is what you get when you don't get what you want. Once the founder of Sony was asked how a company could double their success rate. He replied simply, "Double your failure rate." Meaning that any time you try something, even if it doesn't work, you get more information. Information that you can feed back into the "system" (either a huge company or your own mind-body system). And the more "data" you have, the more effectively you can get your needs met. Of course, nobody likes "failure." Everybody would LOVE to be able to try something and get a perfect result every single time. But as much as we all crave that unicorn-experience, it would be pretty boring. If you KNEW you would get a perfect result every time, those results wouldn't be so satisfying. When was the last time you made a sandwich and danced around like a champion when you pulled it off? Things where we KNOW we will succeed are pretty boring BECAUSE we know we'll succeed. It's the NOT KNOWING that makes life exciting. Does that mean we have to take risks every day? Not if you don't want to. But if you are ever going to get MORE than you have now, it's pretty hard to do so WITHOUT taking any risks. They don't have to be huge. Just small steps where you're not ENTIRELY sure how things will work out. If you keep doing the same things, you'll get the same result. If you want to get something different, you've got a couple of options. One is to simply COPY what somebody else is doing. Then you'll get the SAME result they're getting. IF you can effectively copy EVERYTHING. OR, you can try to do something different, and see what happens. Whatever you try, so long as you're willing to try something NEW (either copied from somebody else or from personal experimentation), you'll ALWAYS learn more. And if you are always willing to learn more, you'll always be able to get more. Find Out How: End Self Sabotage
  19. All humans are programmed to keep going forward. Given our modern lives, it's hard to notice this. But the reason we humans spread out all over the world was because we have descended from ancient humans who had a never-ending drive to keep discovering more stuff. Even if we're sitting at home, watching TV, it's impossible NOT to keep moving forward. Only we don't really experience it as moving "forward." We are always shifting how we sit, what we are thinking of, and if what we are looking at (on our devices or screens or TV) doesn't keep our interest, we NEED to keep shifting. Just to see how nearly impossible it is to NOT keep shifting, try sitting in a quiet room, looking straight ahead for ten or twenty minutes. Sit as quietly as you can, and try to not even move your eyeballs. This is EXTREMELY difficult for most people. In a sense, we are kind of like sharks. Sharks can't sit still. They have to keep moving. But when we humans keep moving, it's usually in circles. Couch to kitchen to couch to bathroom to couch to bedroom to couch, and on and on. Or work and home and work and home and work and home. We STILL have that ancient drive within us. To keep going over new and undiscovered terrain. Which is precisely why we can feel STAGNANT if we keep going round in circles. Couch to kitchen or home to work. What's the answer? Sell your things and become a nomad? That's one way. But you DO need to eat. And you DO need to pay for stuff. So unless you've got a fat bank account, and you happen to only go nomadding near ATM machines, you've got to think of another plan. One is to keep LEARNING new things. Interesting things. Challenging things. This can do a LOT of things at once. You'll be learning more skills, so you'll be worth more money. You'll have a real feeling of forward momentum, so you won't feel stagnant or stuck. AND your brain will stay in shape a lot longer. And you may even find you have skills you've never even thought about before. Click Here To Learn More
  20. We use a lot of metaphors in our language. In fact, it is pretty hard to NOT use metaphors. For example, in that sentence up there, the word "it" is a metaphor for a process or an idea, and it is metaphorically described as "hard." Hard can refer to a physical object, (like a hard wall or a hard boiled egg) but it can also mean difficult or complicated. One common metaphor is the metaphorical gradient between "fresh" and "stale." Physically, it can refer to food. When it's "fresh" it's just out of the oven. Still warm. The most delicious. But let it sit around, and it will get "stale." It won't taste as good. We like things that are "fresh," and we don't like things that are "stale." We also use these terms to describe experiences. When something is "new" and "fresh" it's exciting. We are still in the "discovery phase." And one of the BEST feelings of being a human is discovering something new. Something that keeps getting better. This is why the beginning of a sexual relationship is one of (or can be one of) the most magical thing a human can experience. The only thing that may be better is the beginning of a new PERSON. When relationships get "old" we refer to them as "stale." Plenty of us have been in those same, boring old relationships. You do the same things, go to the same places. That "new" and "exciting" feeling is gone. This is when people start to stray. The human brain doesn't do well when life is boring. We CRAVE new experiences. It's very hard to live life when you're doing the SAME THINGS day after day. However, and paradoxically, we can also be simultaneously TERRIFIED of something anything "new." Because doing something new implies risk, which implies potential failure, which implies negative feelings. So at the same time, we are CRAVING a new experience, but TERRIFIED of making it happen at the same time. This is one of the reasons why the HERO'S JOURNEY (the story that has been repeated a kajillion times since we were cavemen) is so compelling. The "hero" is FORCED to do something new. Something that propels him on a NEW adventure. That is our human DREAM COME TRUE. To be FORCED into a situation that lets us achieve our greatest potential. But here's the thing. If you are waiting for stormtroopers to come and kill your family before you go on your great adventure, you might be waiting a while. In real life, the hero's journey begins with YOU. When you DECIDE to make the journey. When you accept the potential for failure, and go forward anyway. That is when your journey begins. Get Started: Click Here To Learn How

    Please create a video that helps create a superior mindset. I am a professional boxer but have difficulty turning on my "killer instinct". I need to develop a mindset that allows me to destroy opposition. Some ideas to help with this are: *superior to others *more deserving than others/they deserve nothing while I/you deserve everything *better looking than others *you are/I am a leader; they are followers *better than others in all ways *you are/I am the man *more capable than others *take everything; give others nothing *I am/you are special while all others are inferior *others deserve nothing and need to be stamped out I am new to this world so I don't know if I'm using the right terminology here. I'd like a video that is not subliminal. I'd also like one that uses one voice at a time. With that said, I'm looking for a video that is not just sounds, music, and or vibrations. I'd like one with words, but not a bunch of people speaking at once. Thank you
