Most people speak like Chewbacca plays chess.
They sweep their hairy arms across the table, knocking pieces all over the place.
The most elegant persuaders, however, are usually thinking a couple moves ahead.
They know with each statement what it will do in terms of increasing or decreasing rapport, eliciting or leveraging their criteria, or creating desire in their particular idea or product.
Nobody said this stuff was easy.
But like any other skill, you can get better with practice. After all, having the skill to conversationally speak to somebody and covertly slip your ideas into their mind, as if it’s their own, is quite a useful skill to have.
Many claim that this particular skill trumps pretty much any other skill.
In fact, one of my trainers back in the day said he literally wouldn’t trade these skills for millions of dollars. That’s how powerful they are.
It gives one a sense of calm confidence, that no matter what situation you find yourself in, you’ve got the verbal technology to get whatever you want.
Not only that, but you’ll have people eagerly giving it to you. Whether you’re selling million dollar products or getting that girl to go home with you.
I don’t have to tell you that even in this horrible economy, having mad skills like these will take you a long, long ways. In fact, once you get really good at these skills, words like “economy” and “jobs report” will sound like foreign terms that have no meaning.
Because you’ll be creating your own economy.
And you’ll discover something that ancient cultures have already forgotten:
Words Are Magic
Not any words, mind you. Not the kind you grab inside your head without much thought and throw out like a handful of spaghetti, hoping they stick.
But the right words. Carefully chosen so no matter what you’re intentions are, they’ll sound like music to your ears.

Your skills won’t come instantaneously, or without effort.
But they will be magic.
