Watch The World
It’s been said that very few people make things happen.
Then a slightly larger group sits back and watches things happen.
But most people notice the changes and then say:
A few very interesting studies have been done about the role of our self consciousness.
And as best as “they” can guess, most of the time, our self aware minds are after the fact storytelling devices.
We watch ourselves do things.
Data comes in, and our mind body system responds.
Our conscious awareness then comes up with a story about why we did what we just did.
Putting ourselves in the “hero” role, or the “instigator” role.
This is hard to accept, especially from inside your head.
Our ego essentially FORCES us to take credit for all the good stuff that happens to use.
Marketers have known about this since forever.
Say you walk into a shop.
And you decide to buy something.
Your ego makes you believe it was a deliberate, rational choice.
A choice to make you “feel” in control.
The problem is when you use that SAME reason to persuade others, it doesn’t work.
Since it’s not the real reason.
But clever markets do understand the real reasons.
Things like authority, social proof, scarcity, etc.
This is fine from a persuasion, marketing and even seduction standpoint.
But how do you take more control of your OWN decisions?
How do you insert your self awareness IN BETWEEN the data coming in from the world, and your responses?
One way is to train in new responses.
This is what happens when you train new skills down to the level of unconscious competence.
Fighting skills, musical or athletic skills, or even thinking skills.
This is a long process, but it gives a much better result.
Your “watching mind” is still watching.
When you play a song on the piano that you’ve practiced, it’s BEST to turn off your conscious mind.
To kind of watch yourself play.
This is the coveted flow state.
To allow your conscious mind to take back seat to what’s going on.
And “watch” yourself dominate your opponent.
But there are plenty of other ways to insert your watching mind IN BETWEEN the data from the world, and your responses TO the world.
Very careful and conscientious speakers and thinkers do this.
Guys who are very intelligent in their field, and have spoken about those ideas for a long time.
They get asked a question, and they think carefully before responding.
They CHOOSE their words very well.
They are operating consciously, deliberately, and rationally.
You can also do this.
Not with words but with actions.
So you can choose your responses very well.
So you can respond in the BEST way to get the BEST results.
Instead of half asleep, like most people.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
