How To Persuade The Most Important Person

by Houston Vetter - DocResults on December 29,


Since we are coming up on the new year 2012 there is a lot of energy being spent on the importance of this year. People trying to convince you that… the world is coming to an end… it’s the dawn of a new age…. etc. And because of that I wanted to focus this last issue of the year on how to persuade the most important person. Before we get to how to persuade the most important person the question comes to mind; who is the most important person? Your spouse, your children, your parents, your boss, your friends, the government, who is the most important person you have to persuade?

Well before you can persuade any other person you must persuade yourself. So before  you can persuade another important person in your life you want the skill and ability to persuade you… the most important person. The way to persuade the most important person is to learn have control over your emotions.

If you are able to naturally control how you respond instead of react to people, places and things you not only get to live a happier life you can help those you care about life happy and prosperous lives.

Once you are able to easily control your emotional reactions and turn them into responses you will better understand why others act like they act and do what they do.

How To Persuade The Most Important Person

Here are some questions from the book Train Your Thinking you can ask yourself …

  • Does this thought, belief, emotion, state, or feeling, etc. serve (you) me well?
  • Does it enhance (your) my life, bring out (your) my best, put (you) me in a resourceful state, and empower (you) me in reaching (your) my goals?
  • Will it enable (you) me to act in a way true to (your) my values?
  • Or will it limit (you) me, reduce (your) my effectiveness, and put (you) me at odds with (your) my own highest values and beliefs?
  •  How can I view this event as valuable?
  • What was the positive intent for them?
  •  In what context would this behavior be useful?
  • What context’s would I use this behavior?

Practicing the above questions is how to influence the most important person. If you want another useful way you would do it with changing core beliefs.

Once you have learned to turn emotional reactions into responses you want to learn how to influence others. One of the best beginning programs with special automatic learning technology is Pat O’Bryan’s Influence 101.

Do yourself a favor and get  Influence 101 today. You will be very glad you did. It is a great way to understand persuading others.

How To Gain Muscle And Burn Body Fat At The Same Time

by Jon Benson

What is your “big dream?”

I have two:

— To make an impact on the lives of over 10M people before I die;

— To have a family that’s mobile so I can live in many places.

Not bad, right?

Want to know a “third” dream of mine?  One that I saw become a reality a few years ago?

To gain muscle AND burn bodyfat all at the same time.

It’s like a pipe-dream that somehow worked its way through the pipes and into my gym.

It is not easy, granted, but you can do it.

Almost anyone can do it.

You just have to train and eat in a very specific way.

Listen:  You do NOT want to just “burn bodyfat” or god-forbid “lose-weight”… that will not give you the body you want.

You absolutely MUST shape your muscles, tighten and tone, and burn bodyfat.

And you can do it at the same time.

Most pros disagree with me. They think it is metabolically impossible to gain muscle while in a state of low-calorie dieting.

They are wrong.

Here’s an article I wrote on this topic. I hope you enjoy it.

To save you time, I put a link to the online complete version of the article below…
– – – – –
I remember a friendly argument with my co-author of Fit Over 40 Tom Venuto. It all started when I told Tom how I was eating and training for my last peak. A peak is where you lower your bodyfat and try to maintain as much muscle mass as possible.

“There’s just no way I could ever get in shape eating and training like that,” says Tom. “Sure you could man…what are you, a mutant?” Tom fires back, then me, then Tom….and so it goes. (I really didn’t call Tom a mutant. That was creative liberty.)

So why are so many fitness pros like Tom freaked out about my training and nutrition plan? Simple: I claim it burns fat while building muscle at the same time. Every time I read an article by some doctor or expert claiming it’s “biologically impossible” to gain lean muscle mass on a hypocaloric diet (a diet low in calories) I just laugh.

I do more than make claims–I have proved this to be true many times. I’ve had my bodyfat hydrostatically measured during several peaks. In all but one I showed an increase of muscle mass and a decrease of bodyfat during a 12-16 week period. The one time I didn’t show an increase in muscle mass when was I was training the most in the gym. That may not make sense right now, but it will in a moment.

Wow, I am taken aback with the great value you give in this article. Most people focus on persuading other people close to or beneficial to them and forget about themselves in the process, thus living a negative life predicted by other peoples’ actions. Thanks for advising people to focus more on their inner selves.
