What does Vito Corleone, Charlie Wilson, and FDR all have in common?
They all used the same basic persuasion principle.
Vito Corleone, of course, was a fictional character.
But in the story, he helped out plenty of his Italian immigrant friends in the neighborhood.
So later, when he needed some favors, they were more than happy to help.
This is sometimes called the “Godfather principle” for this reason.
What about Charlie Wilson?
They made a movie about him with Tom Hanks.
He was long term Congressman.
And like Vito, he spent plenty of time helping out others.
Kind of like building up his “favor bank.”
So later, when he had to pull some major strings, people were more than happy to help.
Same with FDR.
Call In Favors
He’d been a politician for a while before he became president during the Depression.
So when he had to do all the stuff he did, to hopefully fix things, he had a lot of eager helpers.
Because of the same “Godfather principle.”
In fact, comparisons have been made between FDR and Jimmy Carter.
Their political ideologies are identical.
But FDR is considered by many a great president.
Carter, on the other hand, a huge flop.
Carter was an outsider.
Nobody knew him, so nobody owed him.
He had pretty low charisma as well.
So getting ANYTHING done was nearly impossible.
There is a very sneaky way to leverage this same technique.
Not the Jimmy Carter version, but the Vito Corleone version.
By doing simple favors for people, but not regular favors.
Subconscious favors that make them feel fantastic.
Without them even knowing.
All by strategically using anchors.
A kind of anchor called a “spatial anchor.”
Very easy to learn how to use.
And like Don Corleone, you can use these to kind of “set people up.”
To make them feel good whenever you fire an anchor.
The more you use this, the better they’ll feel.
The stronger the anchor will become.
So when you want them to do something, you make a suggestion while firing the good anchor.
Even better is you can make this simple technique part of your natural personality.
So you make people feel good just by talking naturally.
Which, of course, means you’ll always be building your team of loyal supporters, willing to help you whenever, and however you need.
