How To Become Wildly Popular


Recommended Posts


Bastiat was an economist back in the 1800's.

He's famous for the saying, "It's not what you see, it's what you don't see."

Most people can only think in linear terms.

Do X, and get Y.

If you are hungry, eat something.

If you are tired, go to sleep.

If you want to make money, get a job.

If you want to get a girl to like you, walk up to her and try to get her to like you.

These are simple and easy to think about, but they are very dangerous.

This idea, that only thinking in very simple, very linear, "A causes B" terms is what Bastiat was referring to.

Because in the real world, things are not nearly as simple.

There are tons of variables, all interacting with each other in very confusing ways.

Take the "how do I get a girl to like me" idea.

You have a crush on a lady.

You want to interact with her, and get her to like you.

This is the simple, linear, A causes B strategy.

But it will almost always lead to failure.


One of Dale Carnegie's golden rules is that you can get anybody to do anything so long as they believe it was their idea.

So, there you are, with your eye on a girl.

You walk up to her and TRY to get her to "like you."

She's going to know that's what's going on.

So her liking you is NOT her idea.

It's your idea.

This is why this strategy RARELY works.

At least on it's own.

Instead, consider FIRST being a "likeable" person.

The kind of person EVERYBODY likes.

How can you do that?

Firstly, we like people who like us.

We like people who find us interesting.

We like people who are genuinely curious about us.

More importantly, we like people who make US feel better.

Whenever you interact with somebody, you can create three outcomes.

Make them feel worse.
Make them feel the same.

Make them feel better.

If you make EVERYBODY you interact with feel better, not only will you be very likable, but everybody will KNOW you are very likable.

When you BECOME a well-known, likable person, that's the best frame to operate from.

If you're just goof who walks up to a cute girl out of nowhere, she'll be thinking:

"Hmm, who is this nervous looking stranger approaching me?"

That's NOT a helpful state for her to be in, if you want to build attraction.

On the other hand, if she sees you interacting with other people, and she sees them smiling while they talk with you, she'll have THIS reaction:

"Hey! There's that guy that everybody seems to like! And he's coming to talk to ME! Awesome!"

Now for the money question.

How, specifically, can you BE that person?

By talking to people and taking whatever ideas pop out of their heads, and flip them around until they feel BETTER.


More excited about life.

How can you do that?
