Generate Verbal Brilliance
If you were an athlete, there would be plenty of “meta skills” that could help no matter what your sport was.
Endurance, flexibility, strength, how fast you can recover from workouts, etc.
These would also be supported by good “meta habits.”
Proper sleep, diet, etc.
Even things like meditation and yoga can help you develop things like focus and release of “bad” ideas.
People tend to think of meditation as a kind of esoteric practice that doesn’t really have any applications for normal life.
But at its most basic, meditation is the “art” or “skill” of releasing thoughts.
If you don’t do anything to the factory settings of your brain, it will ALWAYS be thinking.
And since survival has always been a very, very important thing, our brains are ALWAYS focused on potential dangers.
Two Way Chaos
Maybe way back in the day when food, sex, and decent shelter were HARD to get, our auto-pilot brains thought of BOTH bad things and good things.
So maybe today, it’s got all the “good stuff” taken care of, it spends most of us time imagining all the “bad stuff” that MIGHT happen.
Kind of like an “imagination warning system.”
But that can get in the way if you NEED your entire brain.
Being able to RELEASE thoughts you don’t want is a good skill.
Which is why meditation may be better thought of as a useful practice, rather than some kind of metaphysical thing.
So meditating can help to practice that skill.
Of being in a sports situation, or a conversation, or a business argument, and being able to focus ONLY on the task at hand.
This is a very useful “meta skill” that is like the aforementioned sports meta skills of flexibility, endurance, strength.
The one crossover between mental skills and physical skills is the idea to “get rid” of unwanted thoughts.
Mind Clearing Power
And meditation can help both.
Whether you’re a major league pitcher or if you’re just pitching a business idea to your boss.
Having an absolutely clear mind can help.
Meditation can help that.
And there are many, many ways to practice meditation.
The most basic kind is where you do SOMETHING to remind yourself to GET RID of any thoughts that pop up.
Count from one to ten, but start over at one whenever a stray thought pops in mind.
Focus on an image like a candle.
Or say a chant, and focus ALL your attention and intention on that chant.
But there are some kind of “advanced” forms of meditation.
Stream Of Consciousness
Instead of focusing only on one thought (like counting) you allow ALL thoughts to come into mind.
And say them out loud as QUICKLY as you can.
Because sometimes, the verbal battle isn’t one by the one with the EMPTIEST mind.
But the one who can speak the most complex and evolving ideas.
The one who can best TRANSMIT thoughts into verbal descriptions.
And speak them confidently and with a very strong frame.
And mesmerize and impress everybody.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
