  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec18Post.mp4 A common question regarding any social situation is what went wrong. Or what did "they" mean when they said "that." This does seem logical. Nobody likes problems. Everybody likes to get over problems. To understand problems. This is part of our makeup. Our wiring. To learn from our mistakes. This is the BEST way to learn. To make an UNEXPECTED mistake. Then figure out what happened. And do better next time. So it seems logical to use this strategy socially. You're having a conversation with an attractive person. Because you get a good feeling when talking to them, when thinking about talking to them in the future, it feels BAD to not get your outcome. Whether you're looking for friends or lovers, the strategy is very basic. And exists deep beneath conscious understanding. We see somebody and we ENJOY looking at them. We talk to somebody and we ENJOY speaking with them. So the natural and automatic desire is to create a future where we can look forward to interacting with them again. This doesn't matter if they are potential friend, or a potential lover, or even a friendly guy at the meat counter. We enjoy interacting with certain humans. If we showed up at the meat counter and asked about friendly meat guy and found out he'd died, we'd be SAD. For a while, every time we bought meat we'd be SAD. This is normal. So when you're having what you THINK is a friendly conversation, and it goes south, that feels BAD. We don't like bad feelings. We want to know how to DECREASE bad feelings. So, the common response is "what did I do wrong?" This is even a common movie question when one person is breaking up with another person. "What did I do wrong?" Unfortunately, this is the WRONG response. If you are making a recipe, and it comes out terrible, that's a valid question. If you are playing a song on the piano, that question doesn't even need to be asked, since you KNOW what you did wrong as soon as you did. If you are driving somewhere and get lost, that question, "what did I do wrong" is not really thought, but that "feeling" of having done something wrong is what makes you backtrack and find the right directions. Now, WHY is that question, "what did I do wrong" NOT the best question for failed relationships, or conversations? Because relationships are NOT based on right or wrong. They are based SUBJECTIVE feelings. And subjective feelings DO NOT live in the world or right or wrong. Some people will dig you. Some people won't. The question, then, is HOW can you make MORE people dig you? Turns out this is the OPPOSITE of the "do it right" or "do it wrong" strategy. Understand this, and you'll enjoy MUCH more social success.

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec11Post.mp4 There's a common myth about male-female relationships. It's a comforting myth, which is true of most, if not all myths. Myths ARE myths because they can't be proven. But they SEEM to be true because we accept them, we see evidence of them everywhere. This is a function of confirmation bias. Even more dangerous is if common myth has a couple of other "Cialdini ideas" supporting it. Namely, social proof, potential authority, and commitment and consistency. Each one of these helps ideas to slide into our heads. For example, say you try to get a lady to "like you," and you fail. You try again, and you fail. So you go online, and express your frustration. You are told about this "myth" and it soothes your nerves. After all, if you found it was YOUR fault, that would suck. That would mean you needed to do a LOT of practice. Practice doing things that are TERRIFYING. Talking to pretty girls over and over again. Getting rejected over and over again. Until you FINALLY got it right. That is terrible just to think about. So you go online, and talk to your buddies. Enter the "myth." This "myth" solves everything. Firstly, you can pretend it's not YOUR fault. It's the very NATURE of women. Once you accept that comfortable myth, you stat looking for evidence. And your confirmation is always happy to help. So you go back to your online network and report your findings. Just the act of posting this invokes the rule of commitment and consistency. Once you publicly proclaim something, it's VERY difficult to take it back. A bunch of your online bros agree. Now you've got an externalizing myth (not my fault, THEIR fault). You've also got commitment and consistency. You've also got social proof. And if this online community is BIG enough, there's likely authority. Somebody posts a YouTube vid of a "guru" who's got a few hundred thousand followers. This makes it VERY difficult to STOP believing this myth. Now for the very DIFFICULT question. Are you satisfied with NOT getting some action, so long as you've got all these comforting reasons why it's NOT your fault? Or would you rather GET some? Not just a little bit, but a lot. Easily. Consistently. So, what's the myth? The myth is that women are emotional, men are logical. Not true. Not even a little bit. NOBODY is logical. Humans are not Vulcans. We are not angels. We are primates who are only learned to think and talk in a BLINK of an eye's time. Watch a bunch of dudes watching a down-to-the-wire game and try to find ANY logic in there. Watch a video a guy holding his first child and try to find logic. There is none. Pure, human emotion. There IS a bit of a difference between female emotions and male emotions. But that doesn't really matter. Because genuine human emotion will get you much, much further than a FALSE BELIEF in logic. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/emotional-mastery/
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July6Post.mp4 One way to think about sales is pure numbers. You can certainly increase your success by learning techniques. You can definitely increase your success by studying your mistakes, and the stuff that worked. It's kind of a "fantasy desire" to get 100% success, but this is impossible. So ultimately, it WILL boil down to numbers. If you talk to ten people, you'll make three sales, for example. Once that gives you a decent daily income, then you start to increase other things. Like how QUICKLY you can disqualify those 7 people who aren't interested. Everything in life can be seen through this lens. Of a numbers game. Once you accept this, and once you accept your level, then it's a matter of becoming more efficient. Of getting the SAME results with less effort. Many people don't like to fail. They try something, and it doesn't pan out. But you can significantly DECREASE the "pain" of failure. The MORE you put all your HOPES on the success of that one thing, the more it will hurt IF you fail. The more you see that one "thing" as one thing among many, the LESS the outcome will matter. This is a LONG GAME strategy. To see EVERYTHING through two lenses. A short term, in the moment lens. And a long term, part of a long term strategy lens. That way, no matter WHAT happens, you'll gain something. Even if you fail, you will still INCREASE your skills. We all have this basic strategy built into our brain. Trial and error. Or trial and feedback. The idea that "there's no such thing as failure, only feedback," is a clever saying. And it's a very OLD clever saying. The trick is not only understand that intellectually. The real task is to understand that emotionally and subconsciously. For some things, that's easy. Learning to play a new video game. Learning to make something from a recipe. These things have a built in acceptance of "trial and error." The things with that build in acceptance we don't even call trial and error. We call it PRACTICE. The real trick is how to see MORE STUFF through this lens of practice. Just the word, "practice," has built in the idea of long game strategy. Turns out there are plenty of ways to slowly TRAIN in the ability to feel, not just know, this practice with many more things. Particularly social skill and financial skills. Because once you subconsciously can practice these just like you can practice video games, then ALL PARTS of life are fun and exciting. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-esteem/
  5. A few months back they had a new chess computer. Called "Deep Learning," it wasn't really a chess computer. More a "meta computer." Up until that point, the only way to build a chess computer was to program it to play chess. Meaning you had to give it algorithms to reference from any position. So when the computer saw a opponent's position, it had to calculate all the potential moves. But doing that, "calculating all the potential moves," had to be programmed in. Meaning somebody had to put in all the rules and algorithms based on each potential position. But the new "Deep Learning" algorithm was much more meta. They just gave this computer the rules of chess and told it to play against itself. To essentially learn from trial and error. And when they finally played each other, it wasn't even close. The Deep Learning computer obliterated the then FASTEST and BEST chess engine. Essentially this was TWO STYLES of learning. The old way of, "Tell me exactly what to do in each situation." Against the new way of "learn by trial and error." The first way is very compelling to most of us. Because it REMOVES all the risk. And it absolves us of responsibility. If we are TOLD exactly what to do, and we do that, AND it doesn't work, it's NOT our fault. Since we were doing EXACTLY what we were told. Sadly, many people would prefer to be told what to do, step by step, and live a life of mediocrity. So long as they never have to take a risk, and never take much responsibility, they are OK with that. If you want more, you've got to do more. Luckily, all humans come PROGRAMMED with tons of learn by trial and error algorithms. We are much more like the new, MORE POWERFUL computer. But this requires we don't have any anxieties or fears about what we are learning to do. Learning by trail and error in this situations is generally called PRACTICE. That's exactly what you are doing when practicing free throws, or practicing the piano, or practicing solving algebra problems. Practicing IS learning by trial and error. Only when we think in terms of practicing in social situations does it start to get kind of scary. Which is almost always what we think about when we think about making money. But you can practice making money skills just as easily as you can practice piano or basketball skills. And once you REMOVE the anxiety and social fears, it will be JUST LIKE practicing anything else. The more you practice, the better you get. The better you get, the more money you make. As long as you want, as much as you want. Once you remove the negative beliefs, it's purely mechanical. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/

  7. Jesse Livermore was an old school trader. Way back in the 1920's, and even before. He got his start in bucket shops. These were kind of like off-track betting places, but for the stock market. The guys that ran them weren't even connected to the markets. But they used the actual prices from the markets. They only allowed people to trade on the most active stocks. People would buy or sell, but they wouldn't actually buy or sell. The guys running these bucket shops would take their money, and record their buying price. The idea was similar to a bookie. Bookies don't make their money from winning or losing. They make their money from "the juice." If you bet a hundred and win a hundred, you only get back one ninety. The bookies keep the ten percent. So long as they have equal amounts of money on both sides of any game, they don't care who wins. So long as they collect their ten percent, they're happy. These bucket shops operated the same way. For example, today Netflix is a hot stock. So in a bucket shop, they didn't really care if Netflix went up or down. So long as equal people bought and sold. One of the rules of these old school bucket shops was you couldn't hold your position over night. Meaning you had to buy and sell on the same day. If you bought (or sold) and left, you'd forfeit your money. So in a sense, these bucket shops were gambling places. And people would bet on short term movements of the actual stocks on the actual stock market. But this guy, Jesse Livermore, got the nickname, "The Boy Plunger." Because he would take these MASSIVE positions. And he was usually right. He had kind of a sixth sense. He could read the markets, and know when they would change directions. Later he wrote his memoir, "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator." He would frequently "throw out a line." Meaning he would toss in a small amount of money, just to see which way the "current" was going. Like he was going fishing. This is the opposite of what most people do, both today and back then. People want step by step instructions. To be told when to get in, when to get out. It's very similar to social skills. People want to know what to say, when to say it, how to say it. But any social situation or conversation is ALWAYS in flux. And is very much like the markets. So when you think about "tossing out a line," think of that literally. Use opening lines not to GET some OUTCOME. But to MEASURE what's happening. And adjust accordingly. You'll find that treating people and social situations as ORGANICALLY EVOLVING entities is much better than "using" a line to "get" a result. Just thinking this way, and treating people this way, will make you MUCH more attractive. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/attractive-personality/

  11. One of the reasons we love time travel movies is because hindsight is 20-20. Meaning look back over our lives, it's pretty obvious what we SHOULD have done. If ONLY we could go back and try again. One ways this always shows up is financially. There's always some element of "knowing" ahead of time which stock is going to go up, or which sports team is going to win. On the flip side, there's some kind of magic or scientific method of predicting the future. For the same reason, to see which sports team would win or which stocks would go up. Plenty of movies, books, and TV shows have been made about both. Why are these so prevalent? Because KNOWING the future (either before it happens or going back before it's happened) is something we all CRAVE but equally know is impossible. Why do we crave it? Because we all make mistakes. Because we all abhor risk. Yet they are two things we can't escape. Sure, we can try. But the more we minimize risk, or any chance of mistakes, the more we try and maximize our safety, the less likely we'll get anything good. Since most people play it safe, simply by playing it safe we'll get the same thing most people get. An average life, with average income, and average everything. Which isn't that exciting. Are there only two options? Terrifying risks or boring safety? Nope. If you try to plan too far ahead, you increase the amount of risk and likelihood of mistakes. But if you only plan a week or so ahead of time, you'll have much more control. The only requirement is you know WHICH DIRECTION you're going in. Increased income, increased health, etc. So long as you keep the direction clear, and focus only a week or two ahead of time, you'll get the best of both worlds. You'll always be moving forward, but you'll also be minimizing the amount of risk and uncertainty. And since you'll ALWAYS be moving forward, your life will continue to improve. You don't need to take great leaps, only small steps. The small steps you take today will add up to a lifetime journey. Get Started: End Self Sabotage
  12. 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
