Flexing Your Persuasion Muscles

Feb 13, 2008
I'm a new man. Over the last few years I've shed over one hundred and forty pounds of unwanted fat. I have a new attitude toward food and have learned to love the exercising.

At my biggest I was 425-diabetic, near death and certainly no where near being able to bench press anything or hop on a treadmill for sixty minutes. Now I spend at least an hour a day at the gym and I'm feeling incredible with the results improving every aspect of my life.

So why all the bragging? I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about patience, perserverance and self persuasion. These three attributes are like muscles and can be built up just as you build your biceps.

Learning persuasion is very similar to workout out body's muscles. One three hour workout once every other week is much less beneficial than short, frequent periods of study/exercise.

Aside from that, it's much easier to find ten or fifteen minutes a few times a day than carving out a much larger period of time.

Patience. . .it's not easy for many of us to allow things to unravel, to happen over time. We are action oriented people. We want to do, to make, to move, to shake. We get things done and move on to do more. My advice is, become more comfortable with patience. There are some things that can happen immediately. Persuasion is not one of them. It's multi-layered and highly variable. There is absolutely no way you (or I) can learn it all at once.

With that said, I do everything in my power to streamline the process and have made significant advances towards this end. And still, it takes time. It's an ongoing education. We're at the edge of the persuasion frontier and that is thrilling. We are at the edge of the persuasion frontier and that is awe-inspiring. And we are the pioneers so we learn from each day, each session, each exercise, each seminar.

That's a lot to digest. (Back to the food metaphors!)

With our intentions firmly set to learn all that we can about how to influence, we add layer upon layer of persuasion muscle to our work lives, personal lives and public lives. Slowly (depending on how much energy you're willing to put out), but surely we will build our persuasion arsenals into tight, toned, compact, (or bulky, depending on your taste), versatile, strong, and powerful tools. I can't tell you how much it thrills me to be your persuasion personal trainer.
