Module 1: Hypnotic Storytelling Foundations And The “Johari Window”
Where to find the most persuasive and seductive stories… hidden where you’re least likely to look.
Connect with people at a deep emotional level and compel them to take action in the moment. (Evoke any emotional state needed to get the response you seek.)
Why the entire world is nothing more than a story in our minds. (And how knowing this allows you to influence anyone you want.)
5 reasons hypnotic storytelling is at the heart of human interaction. (And a sixth reason which proves people will do almost anything when told the right story… in the right way.)
Think you don’t know how to weave an influencial tale? Baloney! Here’s how you’ve “engineered” compliance from parents, siblings, teachers and bosses… but… just didn’t catch on to what you were doing. Now you’ll know how to ethically influence others on purpose!
Guarantee your suggestions sneak past the mind’s critical factor. (Tired of telling others what to do and getting nowhere? This is how you by-pass the natural skeptic in everyone who is waiting to shoot your suggestions down.)
The truth behind how things really get done in the world. Proof from English anthropologist, Margaret Mead, of what it takes to motivate people into action to achieve even the most “impossible” of tasks.
The “cloak of story”: A little-known technique for relating personal anecdotes while making an important point… without… exposing yourself. (Great for shy and reserved people who want to influence the “hard cases” in their lives.)
How to “soup up” your conversational and social skills so people find you fascinating and absolutely irresistible.
The “Johari Window”: A simple technique (developed in 1955 by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham) which gives you deep insight into how people think. And once you know how they think… it’s easy to come up with just the right hypnotic story.
Why “Reasoning” With Someone Is
The Surest Path To Non-Compliance
A startling revelation I had while on a silent meditation retreat. (Listen to this account and you will NEVER be afraid of engaging other people in conversation again.)
What companies like Nike and Coca Cola are really selling… and… why you and I buy into it hook, line and sinker. (Hint: It’s not sneakers and soda. Follow their example and you’ll have no trouble getting your ideas accepted too.)
Exploit this quirk of human nature and people will cling to your every word… and then… do exactly as you say.
Bonding with total strangers so fast you’d think they were a long-lost friend. (And how to avoid breaking social “norms” and scaring people away.)
Natural storytelling talents you’ve suppressed almost your entire life. (Plus… how to build your storytelling “muscles” so you start crafting tales that inspire, motivate and induce trance without even trying.)
When it’s okay to take “artistic license” with your stories… and… when to stick to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Strange New World: A fun exercise for getting your creative juices flowing. (I often practice this first thing in the morning. It focuses the mind on finding storytelling fodder.)
Why remembering a story word-for-word is useless when trying to hypnotically influence someone. I’ll reveal a better alternative used by master hypnotists.
Module 2: Provoking Emotions And The 5 Key Elements Of A Story That Impacts The Unconscious Mind
Spinning boring life events into a compelling plot people can’t get enough of when they hear it. (The result? Influence happens effortlessly!)
How to change moods by reframing someone’s mental and emotional reference point. (Robin recounts a meeting he had with an accountant who hated his job. That is… until he was shown how to “look at it” from a different point of view.)
Feedback Loops: A secret way to lock people into a frame of mind thatleads naturally to agreement. (If they did this more in schools kids would probably love to learn.)
A simple story format for building trust and rapport. (It’s also a “gateway” to ethical emotional and mental influence.)
Afraid you’ll run out of stories? I’ll show you the easy way to tell a hypnotic story that spawns other hypnotic stories. Believe me, you’ll have more “ammunition” than you’ll know what to do with.
How to suck people into your thrilling sagas without even trying. I figured this out when I was coaching “tough-as-nails” Fortune 500 executives who were twice my age and didn’t want to listen to a young buck like me. (Never failed me yet.)
Secrets Of Spontaneous Story Creation Almost No One In The Hypnosis Industry Knows
Robin’s memory trick ensures you never forget a great story you came up with. (Now, the stories you create will stick in your mind like crazy glue.)
Another memory trick I like to instantly recall your favorite “yarns of persuasion.” (By the way, both of these tricks work when you want to remember… anything!)
The Mental Stash Technique: Yet another secret for mentally storing all of your hypnotic stories for immediate access.
The “golden thread” woven into all stories and myths from the beginning of time.
How to tell a gripping story in 30 seconds… 30 minutes… or any time frame you choose. (Expand or collapse any story depending on how much time you have to mastermind a paradigm shift in your subject.)
What Aristotle said 2,500 years ago about the purpose of a drama… and… why his advice is critical if you want to hypnotize more people in less time.
5 elements every hypnotic story must include for maximum influencial impact. (Miss one and you’re done.)
When’s the best time to end a story meant to influence? Here’s the exact moment to stop talking and let the hypnotic process take over. (If you keep going, it may actually work against you and undo everything up to that point.)
