Water and Ice
Life is filled with paradoxes.
According to the harsh rules of economics, everything costs something.
Plenty of philosophy and poetry is filled with ideas of expecting one thing, and getting something else.
The entire history of government involvement in an otherwise smoothly functioning economy is filled with examples of “unintended consequences.”
The government does something to “fix” things, but only on a short term time frame.
On a much longer term time frame, the “unintended consequences” turn out to be far worse than the original problem they were trying to fix.
Life is also filled with a lot of self fulfilling prophecies.
We are afraid of something bad happening.
So we take action to keep that bad thing from happening.
But that action is the thing that MAKES that bad thing happen.
Take a guy who likes a girl.
He wants her to like him.
He doesn’t want her to reject him.
Nice Guy Rejection
So in order to not get rejected, he is overly nice to her.
He walks on eggshells.
Makes sure to give her plenty of compliments.
This behavior is unattractive.
So she rejects him because of this behavior.
This “nice guy” behavior.
Guys complain that girls don’t like nice guys.
Plenty of people complain about plenty of things.
Generally that life isn’t fair, and “the world” shouldn’t be the way it is.
Well, the world, which is all the people in the world, aren’t that concerned with what you or I think the world “should” do.
Everybody lives according to their own interests.
Nobody lives according to the interests of other people.
This is hard pill to swallow.
Especially today, when there are so many opinions online and social media about what people SHOULD do.
You have an idea in your brain about women in general “should” operate.
Be nice, give them a compliment, and they’ll be happy.
And you’ll “get” something in response.
This is a frustrating way to go through life.
It would be like being conned into believing that just because you give a good sales pitch, people “should” buy whatever you are selling.
But even the best sales pitches for the best products get maybe a ten percent closing rate.
If you got angry whenever somebody didn’t buy when you thought they “should” buy, you’d be angry and broke.
This is the state of the most men today.
Men who are taught by social media how women “should” behave.
You try it out and they don’t behave that way.
Then you get angry.
This doesn’t work.
What does work?
Stop being nice.
Be kind, yes.
But respectful, yes.
But don’t be nice.
Own Your Space
Put yourself first.
Do not put up with any disrespect.
And always be willing to move on to the next target.
This works surprisingly well.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
