I’ve had a lot of crappy jobs in my life.
And some pretty awesome ones.
One of my favorites was when I worked at a movie theater in high school.
Lots of people my age, fast paced, got to meet people when they were in a good mood.
The best part was when I’d load up a car with popcorn, drinks and candy and push it into a packed theater a few minutes before the movie started.
I would push the cart up and down the aisles and holler out like an old school pitchman.
And I almost ALWAYS sold out.
Other jobs were horrible. The worse was when I was a telemarketer. They had us memorize a script. And hooked us up to an automatic dialing computer. We would see the person’s name a split second after they answered.
And spit out the memorized pitch. If they hung up, the computer would automatically dial another line.
It was incredibly BORING.
The only fun part was when somebody got ultra pissed and went off into a well spoken tirade against telemarketers. THAT part was pretty entertaining!
Funny thing was, if I agreed with everything they said, while they were yelling at me, they actually thanked me when they were done.
It’s easy to fall into a rut, and hear the same things and say the same things day in and day out.
So when we finally unleash how we REALLY feel, even if it’s anger, it feels pretty good to get some sympathy and understanding.
Every single person you run across has all kinds of things they’d LOVE to express.
But most are too shy, and nobody ever asks.
So they never do.
Which is why there is a GOLD MINE inside pretty much every person you come across.
Even if you’re just looking to kill time while waiting for the bus, people can provide enormous value.
Everybody’s got a story. Everybody’s got a different perspective.
All you’ve got to do is practice “opening them up.”
Because inside, there is TREASURE.
And the more people you talk to, the more stories you’ll have.
The EASIEST way to use Covert Hypnosis to slip ideas into people’s minds is through stories.
“Hey, that’s pretty cool, that reminds me of this girl I was talking to the other day at the bus stop…”
And then launch into several nested loops, within which you can layer all kinds of language technology.
Most people go through life hoping to AVOID interacting with others. But once you realize that OTHER PEOPLE are your greatest resource, you’ll realize the HUGE gold mine that’s around you.
All the time!
