There are plenty of skills, language patterns and techniques that can help you become incredibly persuasive and influential in every area of life.
However, as you may be aware, it’s one thing to read about them, or watch a video, and try them out in public, with unsuspecting people.
After all, it’s easy to understand how language patterns work in theory, but springing them in a conversation feels a bit “weird” to many people.
However, there is a way to practice these patterns without taking the plunge.
Let’s say you’re working on using embedded commands. You may know what they are, how to make them, but you’re not quite ready to use them conversationally.
A good way to practice them is review your conversations at the end of the day.
Think of a couple of instances where you “could have” used a couple embedded commands.
Then replay that situation in your mind, as if you’d actually used them.
You’re basically rewriting your memories for that day.
The next time you come into an opportunity, using embedded commands will feel more “natural.”
The more often you do this, the more natural they’ll feel in real time.
Naturally, you can do this with any other language pattern or technique you are intending to get good at.
Try it, and see what happens.
