Carnegie Origin Story
How To Win Friends and Influence People is one of the best self help book written for a lot of reasons.
Carnegie realized a long time before wrote the book that the quickest way to be able to increase social confidence was through public speaking.
But not being able to speak publicly and give some random speech about random things.
Persuasive Speaking Skills
To specifically learn how to give a speech that would motivate people.
So he started teaching these public speaking courses way back during the Great Depression.
And this was insanely popular.
And from the years of teaching people how to become more confident and to be able to speak persuasively that’s where the ideas in the book came from.
These ideas were based in time tested techniques that really worked.
There’s this new organic market near my house that just opened.
It’s very much like whole foods but privately owned.
The prices are pretty good, and so far it’s been pretty crowded every time I go there.
One thing I like this have tons of bulk nuts. you can buy.
So if you like nuts you can buy these when you go there.
A lot of people like to go to toastmasters to improve public speaking.
This is definitely safe place.
It’s very easy to get started and slowly ease your way into public speaking confidence.
There are a couple of drawbacks, however.
One is most of the speeches are pretty boring.
People go there to practice their confidence, so they generally give speeches that aren’t really that important or really very interesting.
Another potential problem is you might run into some goofy type of people there.
One the one hand you’ve got people that are self-starters.
You’ve got people that are purposely doing things to improve confidence and to improve social skills.
These are good people to hang around.
But on the other hand, you get a lot of network marketing types.
They’ll seem friendly at first, until you realize that they’ve got some kind of angle.
Everybody’s Got An Angle
It seems everybody these days has got some kind of angle.
Last week there was this guy that seemed really shy and introverted.
But then when this guy got up to talk, it was like a switch went on.
This guy became suddenly charismatic and energized.
Like he had some instinct that made him feel at home in front of a large crowd.
But then he started his speech, and things suddenly got really, really strange.
His speech was all about the benefits of peanut butter.
Like if you eat peanut butter you’ll improve your health.
If you eat peanut butter, you’ll get better sleep.
But then he started talking about how there yet to be discovered magical ingredients and hormones in peanut butter.
Peanut Butter Is Magic
That when you eat peanut butter regularly all kinds of magical things will happen.
This weirdo recommended that you eat at least one cup of peanut butter per day.
That it takes that long to build up the necessary absorption of the magical ingredients that are inside peanut butter to start to transform your body.
He said that people who have peanut butter allergies are purposely being conned by the medical industrial complex.
That certain parts of the government are trying to keep the magic of peanut butter from us.
Ease Into It
Which kind of makes sense.
I watched a documentary on food allergies recently, and one doctor said it might be because we have too many chemicals.
And we aren’t experiencing enough non-chemically treated foods at a young age.
One experimental procedure to treat food allergies is to slowly build up resistance to the food.
Which is kind of like how vaccines work.
Get Down With The Sickness
They give you the sickness in small enough dose so your body can develop a natural resistance.
So it kind of makes sense that if you do happen to have a peanut allergy, to maybe, under your doctor’s supervision, to slowly see if you can increase your peanut tolerance.
At least according to that documentary, which was on Netflix, so it might not have been completely honest.
Since everybody’s got an angle.
Peanut Butter Charisma
But peanut butter charisma man even said that if you build up your peanut butter blood chemistry enough, you can develop telepathic abilities.
That if you eat enough peanut butter you can learn to remote influence people.
That if you have enough peanut butter in your blood, you can actually grow your penis.
This is when I suspected this guy might be an agent with the peanut butter industrial complex.
Expansions Of Industrial Complexes
I heard that the agricultural industrial complex was trying to branch out.
So maybe this guy was at toastmasters practicing his sales pitch or something.
Some lady came up to me after, I guess she noticed the confused look on my face when I was watching the peanut butter man give his speech.
She said don’t worry to much about him, that this guy just a nutjob.
A peanut job.
Then she asked me if I wanted to go have a drink with her.
I said sure, why not?
So we’re about halfway into our respective drinks and she lays into me with her network marketing pitch.
Something about magnetic bracelets or something.
If you wear them you’ll become healthier.
Bait and Switch Me, Will You?
Whenever I get a blatant sales person like that, I like to be as obnoxious as possible, just to see how much they can take.
I figure if she’s going to bait and switch me like that, I’ll see how much she can take.
I said that according to peanut butter man, if you eat enough peanut butter you can grow your penis.
I looked at her and said, will my penis grow if I wear your magnetic bracelet.
She left and I had to pay for both of our drinks.
Custom Made Nut Butter
One cool thing is they will blend your own custom made nut butter.
I mean it’s kind of expensive, since they have to clean out their nut grinding machine, but you can create your own custom blend.
And since nuts really are filled with tons of nutritional benefits, once you calibrate your own custom nut blend, you can have your own unique nut butter.
Real World Tried and Tested
The thing about Carnegie’s book is it is based on real world trial and error studies.
All these people would come and give speeches about daily life during the depression.
His book was essentially all the things that worked best for being able to develop very powerful interpersonal social skills.
Jack Up Your Confidence
And if you are really interested in getting really powerful, world class social skills and public speaking skills, they still have that same training.
It’s twelve weeks, and a couple thousand bucks, but it’s a billion times more intense than toastmasters.
And if you do this, if you decide to buy this course it will definitely change your life.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
