Mind hack #1: FASCINATION

How to fascinate your prospects?

You can tell a fascinating story, your hero’s journey for example.

Tell people what you went through in COLORFUL descriptions not a flat tone.

Tell stories that you know of other people that’s related to your business.

Be a great story teller not a dry dirt.

Continue to hone your story telling skills, be vivid, be emotional, be HUMAN. You will become FASCINATING!

We are, if only for a moment, utterly spellbound. Herein lies the power of fascination: it strips away our usual rational barriers, exposing our minds, leaving us vulnerable to influence, naked to persuasion.

Mind hack #2: SHOCKING

While fascinating is mesmerizing, shocking intrigues insatiable curiosity.

Humans are curious in nature.

People are seeking to be SHOCKED so that they can get out of their daily boring mundane.

Think about how many people spent hours and hours reading thriller, or watch horror movies. It trigers something on the SOUL level, that we all want to get out of the norm and be thrilled.

How to use shocking in marketing your business?

Be BOLD!

Tell your story from a unique angel that’s out of the norm.

Don’t just give a lecture, throw out an intrigering promise that people have to read on to find out for themselves.

Perhaps the best example is marketing genius John Carlton‘s one legged golfer ad.

It’s BOLD.

It’s unbelievable.

It sounds too good to be true.

Therefore, one has to read the whole story to find out!

That’s the power of being SHOCKING! It grabs people’s attention. People simply cannot ignore it.

Mind hack #3: SUSPENSION

Yes, you read it right.

Suspension can help you make your message enticing and unforgettable!

Our mind is very fascinating!

It wants to understand, and it won’t stay in midway! It wants to complete the loop.

Have you ever read headlines like this:

This is just a headline I made up on the fly 🙂

You might have seen headlines like that where they promise you a list of things, then they single out a particular item, usually the later ones if not the last one.

It intriguers curiosity.

It puts your mind in SUSPENSION!

When that happens, your mind has to find out about this thing they singled out! It won’t settle until your mind finds out.

That’s the power of suspension.

It keeps your interest high and “forces” you to keep on reading.
