  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov16Post.mp4 Plenty of animals can be trained. Even wild animals. This is something most would disagree with. But the word "trained" is often thought to be associated with the idea of being "trained to do what we want." For example, I've seen plenty of "trained" deer in the wild. No, they didn't do tricks or sit. But they were "trained." Only nobody "trained" them. They "learned." What did they learn? That humans are a source of FREE FOOD. My buddies and I had spent a day hiking. We got to ou

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug20Post.mp4 One of the common ideas in all the Rocky movies is strange training techniques. In the first one, this was famously Rocky hitting huge slabs of meat. In another one, Mickey, his trainer, had him chasing around a chicken. In still another one, when he fought the Russian guy (Ivan Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren) they had a kind of interesting juxtaposition. They'd show the Russian training on a bunch of high tech equipment, then they'd show Rocky lifting up rocks or pulling people up mountains in carts. You'll find th
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec15Post.mp4 People can, and are, trained just like animals. We have a built in learning system, which is based on the same learning that is built into lower animals. The famous "anchoring" process from NLP is a perfect example. It's based on Pavlov's famous dog experiments. Scientist had a dog. He brought the food, and the dog salivated. He brought the food, and rang a bell, and the dog salivated. He rang the bell WITH the food a few times. Then he ONLY rang the bell, and the dog salivated. He essentially "tr
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov07Post.mp4 Fight Club was a fantastic movie. A lot of ideas about masculine energy, what happens when there is a lack of positive male models, etc. But there was one scene in particular that was interesting. After the two main characters had their first couple of fights. It gave them a much better sense of everybody around them. They would get on a bus, for example, and IMMEDIATELY scan the crowd, and figure out who they could likely beat in a fight, and who they might not. This is one of those movie scenes that is intuiti
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun12Post.mp4 The song, Pinball Wizard, by The Who is an interesting song. Most pop songs are about love, etc. But the Pinball Wizard is about a guy who is deaf, dumb and blind. But he plays pinball better than everybody else. He "feels" his way around the game. And because of his skills he becomes a kind of cult like guru. The idea, as strange as it seems, is pretty common. Of feeling your way around complex situations. In many (slightly) fantasy type movies about martial arts, (or things like martial arts l
  7. One of my favorite movie scenes is from the movie, "Man on Fire," with Denzel Washington. It's a remake of an earlier movie. Kind of a common structure. A washed up assassin takes a job baby sitting a rich family's kid. Through the relationship with the kid, the hero "re-discovers" his core truth. Then some bad guys come and kidnap the kid. The assassin regains his power and kills everybody. But one scene had Denzel's character walking along side the kid he was baby sitting as she was swimming laps in a pool. She was training for an upcoming competition.
  8. Imagine if you took a seminar on boxing. And it was NOT a "hands on seminar." It was pure theory. How to punch at what angle and strength. Imagine some of the questions. "So, if I'm halfway through the eighth round, and he comes at me with a roundhouse from the left, with a plane angle of 22 degrees, but with only 78% strength, what's the best defensive move in that condition?" And imagine if the instructor actually answered. If he had a powerful computer and generated the precise punch in question, and then demonstrated the defensive move that would be maxim
  9. Everything we do has deep reasons and surface reasons. And not from a metaphysical sense. From a purely biological, scientific sense. On a very deep level, we are driven by instincts. Every single thing we do is it satisfy one or more combinations of instincts. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Because it involves taking something physical that we can see, touch, and smell. And through the process of eating, or satisfying our deep hunger instinct, we take that STUFF from OUTSIDE of our body, and put it INSIDE of our body. And while it is INSIDE our bo
  10. There are two very basic ways to get somebody to do something. And there are two basic reasons why we all do things. To INCREASE our state, by moving toward something positive. Or to INCREASE our state, by moving away from something negative. When thinking about persuading others, you MUST use their reasons. A very common technique of persuasion is "features and benefits." Where you list all the features, or the positive aspects of whatever you are persuading them to do. The benefits are the REASONS why they are "good things." One "feature" can have MANY
  11. When you were a kid your mom was worried about you hanging out with the wrong crowd. All moms are worried about their kids hanging out with the wrong crowd. Because we tend to pick up "bad habits" that way. A few decades of data show this to be true. The idea of nature vs. nurture is an old one. Take the idea that wealthy people have more books in their houses. Which of these come first? Does their desire to read books give them knowledge (from the books) and then they use that knowledge to make money? Is the desire to learn things the SAME knowledge tha
  12. The most important part of humans is our brain. Our ability to think and plan creatively is what made us dominate the planet. Our brain was SO valuable that we pretty much evolved everything else AROUND our big brains. Kind of like every ancient civilization formed around rivers. Jericho, for example, the world's OLDEST city, had a natural spring that continued to gush up water. Other cities formed around springs died up as soon as the water did. Cities mean people and a lot of farmland, and that requires a lot of continuous water. Sometimes, though, this is
  13. When I was a kid my brother had a pretty cool dog. He loved to run outside. Whenever he would see me or my brother putting our shoes on, he would get excited. He made the simple association in his doggie brain that "putting on shoes = going outside." Pavlov, of course, is famous for doing experiments on dogs. Getting them to salivate when he ran bells. This is also the principle behind anchoring in NLP. Create an emotion, set an anchor, and that emotion is connected to the anchor. If the anchor was set correctly, every time you fire it after that, then t
  14. Pegging is a very useful memory technique. But most courses and books don't quite teach it correctly. Pegging, if you aren't familiar with it, is like hanging your keys on a peg. You walk in the door, hang your keys on the peg, and they'll be there when you need them. The idea is to take a new piece of information, and attach it to a pre-existing piece of information in your brain. This part is simple and straightforward. Whether it actually works or not is based specifically on HOW you connect the two ideas together. For example, let's say you were going sho
  15. Once when I was very young, my dad and I were watching our dog run around the back yard. The dog got near a small apple tree. My dad remarked that he didn't want our dog to get a taste of the apples. At the time, I had no idea what he meant. But later I did. An apple tree, to a dog, is just a regular tree. And since dogs don't generally eat trees, they don't think of an apple tree as anything special. But this particular tree was pretty small. Small enough so the dog could reach some of the apples. My dad was worried that if the dog ate one of the a
  16. All humans are motivated by two things. Two very vague, and very strong motivators. They color all our thinking and acting. We want more of one thing, and less of another. One is pleasure, one is pain. Pain and pleasure are extremely vague ideas. But everything we either move towards, or move away from, can be put in one of these two categories. Things we want, and things we don’t want. This is how all humans learn. When we do things “correctly” it FEELS good. When we make a “mistake,” it FEELS bad. Since we are naturally programmed to do
  17. There’s a saying in NLP that you can’t not communicate. Meaning that everything you do, conscious or unconscious, verbal or non-verbal, is a kind of communication. You are always transmitting SOME type of information. On a deeper level, you can say that we can’t not PERSUADE. Communication requires two people. Even if those two people are imaginary people living inside your head. Any data that is transmitted from one person to another is done for a REASON. That reason is to change the state of the receiver. Sometimes this is a conscious intention, someti
  18. 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
  19. In sports, a common saying is “leave it on the field.” Which means when you play a big game, you put in 100% effort. So when the game is over, you’ve given everything. This is a fantastic idea for sports. The problem with metaphors like this is when they are misapplied. For example, let’s say you wanted to walk across the room and talk to somebody. The “leave everything on the field” approach isn’t so appropriate. When you’re playing sports, especially an important game, winning is the ONLY thing. (Except maybe for little league...) Any team that lo
  20. Being able to reverse engineer something is a powerful skill. Companies do this all the time. They take apart their competitors product. Rebuild it with enough changes they don’t violate any copyrights. Humans copying other humans is as old as the hills. One of the main driving forces of the Industrial Revolution was everybody was copying the crap out of everybody else. Back then, everything was pretty simple. The first big pieces of industrial equipment were looms. Pieces of equipment that could take raw cotton, and then transform them into textiles.
  21. NLP is often called the “study of excellence.” In a way, this makes sense. Most of NLP and was reverse engineered from naturally successful people. None of the techniques were “invented” from scratch. Most of the language patterns, for example, were reverse engineered from Milton Erickson. Erickson actually DID invent them from scratch. But he did so after a LONG period of trial and error. He was a “practicing” physician. The reason they use that word, practicing, is that’s what physicians do. They PRACTICE. Every time they see a new patient, i
