24 Practical Examples of Frame Control

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Frame Control750

In every social interaction one person is more reactive than the other to the words and actions of the person they are communicating with. Frame control is a topic that gets discussed Ad nauseam in hypothetical terms, in this article I'll break out of that by providing a mix of examples in pop culture, movies and television along with personal anecdotes. Frame control really is relevant to every human interaction but the most colorful examples of it come from the domains of business and seduction, I could deconstruct boundless case studies of it that are whole lot more PG rated, I've chosen examples that are a bit more edgy so that you actually remember and can apply them.

As you will see their is quiet a spectrum of Frame Control, and certain frame control methods should not be used in certain situations. This is not quiet an area where you should just go with what feels natural. In fact there a very few Frame Control naturals. You can find a ton of articles and books that discuss it theoretically in depth. However, if you'd like to see an infographic designed that breaks the topic down visually, let me know in the comments at the bottom. Although, honestly you may just find these examples more useful.

My $1 Diet Lifehack: Coconuts

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

diet lifehack

This article is about what is maybe my number one lifehack - Coconuts, yes coconuts. I'm serious about coconuts. Whenever I learn a new language I start by learning phrases like
Soy el commandante del cocos (Spanish) - I'm the commander of the coconuts
Я босс кокосов (Russian) - I'm the boss of coconuts
Sunt regele nuci de cocos (Romanian) - I'm the king of coconuts

Coconuts are my number one diet hack because they are economic, simple, social, nutritious, delicious, and fun:

Economic

one dollar billYou can replace one of your meals a day with a coconut that is going to cost you about one dollar. I've eaten thousands of coconuts over the years while living in Latin America - South America - North America and Europe. Interestingly coconuts cost about the same all over the world, you would think the price of coconuts would vary significantly as you got further away from the tropics but even in Eastern Europe, during the winter time I could easily find coconuts for about a dollar. I always try to buy my coconuts from the fancy, organic grocery store in town, since I assume they are a higher quality supply and they still always cost just about a dollar. Nobody watching this can use the excuse; that they can't afford to eat healthy! Unless you live in someplace like Iceland, you can replace one of your meals a day with a coconut that will cost about a dollar.

The Debate on Smart Drugs

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

IQ2The Intelligence Squared Youtube channel is one of the few places that transcends the internet echo chamber by pitting teams of elite experts against each other for well over an hour to explore the nuances and challenge our preconceptions of decisive issues. This week they debated smart drug usage on campus, which I watched with keen interest..

I've personally used over 60 smart drugs, I've also spent about 10 hours a week for the past 4 years on Pubmed studying the human clinical trials. This is a rabbit hole that goes deep and I've explored it thoroughly, so I watched this debate with much interest.

Some snarky remarks and insights of mine at different time-stamps of the debate...

L-Theanine: an Instant Charisma Upgrade

l theanine charisma Clinton
Introduction: I frequently receive emails and Facebook messages asking me something to the effect of...
"What is the best Nootropic increasing social confidence?"
Near the top of my list of exotic molecules to achieve that is L-Theanine. in about 30 minutes it consistently brings me a measure of tranquility to manage social situations with grace and gravitas. As the active ingredient in green tea, it's an exceptionally safe nutraceutical, with virtually no downside. Finally, it's VERY cost effective, a year's supply of it runs about $25.
Fatjong of TheanineZone.com has an entire blog, with numerous articles devoted to explaining different L-theanine uses. Checkout this article he wrote on the neurobiology of confidence.

Take a look at these two guys and which of the two seems more competent, more intelligent and more leader-like?

{2jtoolbox photogallery id:33}

You probably chose the guy on the left. These two guys ran for a senate seat in Wisconsin. On the right is Timothy Michels a Republican. On the left is Russell Feingold a Democrat, who actually won the seat!

This is crazy, because in one second you predicted the voting outcomes of a couple of millions people, those who had a lot more information than (pro gun? Pro abortion? More or less taxes?…) you did.

Want to try another time? Here you go, which of the two seems more competent, more intelligent, more leader-like?

Do Smart Drugs make you Cross Eyed?

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

{youtube}U4As6EyHvw8{/youtube}

So I've got an admission...

As is obvious to everyone watching this I am cross eyed and today I've decided to admit something...
Smart drugs are actually part of an evil conspiracy by myself, the Illuminati, ISIS, Obama, Trump, Putin, and the CIA to make everybody cross eyed.

So many people have commented on my Youtube videos about my asymmetrical face that I'm now admitting it to the world, you guys figured out my evil scheme. Congratulations.

So...
If you have taken smart drugs, in the brave spirit of self experimentation and personal development, the bad news is that you too will eventually become cross eyed like myself.

However...
Those skeptics who have not taken smart drugs, not taken action towards improving themselves, for the trolls and lurkers watching endless Youtube videos, for the self help junkies who have done nothing but read self help books, have nothing to worry about...
When the hordes of cross eyed, ampakined, smart drugged zombies are marauding through the streets...
Don't worry because you will be safe in your mother's basements. You can stay forever in your comfort zone, your cheeto dust covered fingers can continue trolling and leaving hatefully, petty, un-spell-checked comments.

Adult ADHD Cured! The Four Pillars of Maintaining Focus, Motivation and Memory

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Adult ADHD Cured

I had a classic ADHD childhood, I had boundless energy that I channeled into serial passion projects; dinosaurs, aviation, World War 2 history, designing space ships, creating amateur action movies, writing science fiction stories, Tae Kwon Do, swordsmanship, Karate, breakdancing and even studying Islam for a little while. Perpetually a starter, rarely a finisher. The only thing consistent was my bad grades. I was moved from Special Ed program to Special Ed program. I lacked social calibration though I constantly tried to ingratiate myself with the most elite social group I could find. I was constantly trying to upgrade my social circle, but I didn't have what it took to be one of the cool kids, and frequently found myself an outsider and a loner.

I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 8, and given Ritalin, it helped a lot. Without it, a younger version of myself found it nearly impossible to focus for more than 5 minutes on the lessons and educational material being presented by my grade school teachers.
In an age when ADHD (back then they called it ADD) was misdiagnosed and the pharmaceutical solutions were overdosed, I think I was a legitimate case. In high school I switched to Adderall, which seemed to imbue a longer lasting focus, along with a more relaxed and tranquil mindset. I wasn't in such a hurry to impress people, which helped me make more genuine friendships
My medication is probably one of the main factors that allowed me to attain a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and actually graduate high school.

As a young adult, I was very ambitious and a voracious student of success, yet I had a nearly 5 year streak of none stop career failures. I had been fired more times than I can count on two hands; I just couldn't quiet cut it as a waiter, car salesman, a mortgage broker, a banker or in Yellow Pages sales. I had a lot trouble paying my bills on time, I was constantly late on rent, I even managed to get in some real legal trouble over some unpaid speeding tickets. While my social life was a whole lot more lively (thanks partially to my side gig as nightclub promoter), my dating life was inconsistent and I could not hold on to a girlfriend. I would occasionally get my hands on a bottle of Adderall, which seemed to make quiet a difference in my performance at work, but crushing personal and career disappointments were always just around the corner.

I was constantly reading inspirational books and trying to apply what they said about business ethics and providing value but it never paid off. I was perpetually a minute late and a dollar short; late to work, late to meetings, late on rent, not hitting sales quotas. While I was building a large social circle and social media friend count through my nightclub promotion, the relationships were quiet shallow. Also, being a nightclub promoter, I was hungover and under slept half the time which took a toll on my real career in corporate America. I was having fun and learning a lot but my prospects for the future were pretty bleak. My mediocre career and personal life was a case study of lack of focus, follow through and my equivocations of standards in every domain of life.

Fast forward to today and at 30 years old I'm really a different person; I'm one of the most disciplined and consistent people I know. I'm a long term strategist, not a short term opportunist. I'm more focused and motivated than I've ever been. I have developed a work ethic that's pretty rare in my generation. My fleeting obsession with passion projects has been replaced with a long term commitment to processes. I've really cured my adult ADHD.

There's four pillars that I have to thank for this transformation

The Blue Sky Meditation Protocol

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    


Blue Sky Meditation Protocol
Probably a lot of you are thinking...

Oh meditation... That's like thinking about not thinking right? I already tried meditation, I suck at meditation. I just get irritated with myself for thinking when I shouldn't be thinking.

Well... You probably haven't had success with meditation yet because your mind needs to warm up, your mind needs some foreplay to actually meditate.
The Blue Sky Protocol is a process that will lubricate your mind like it's in a candlelit, jacuzzi filled with KY jelly with a Barry White album playing in the background.
The Blue Sky Protocol will give your mind the foreplay it needs.

You've probably heard of the myriad benefits of meditation elsewhere; antiaging, memory, neuroplasticity, stress management and 'being present' in social interactions.
But what are the immediate, day to day benefits? If you are going to devote 10 minutes a day to something in the short term you probably want to know what you can expect to get out of it in the short term...

Limitless Mindset Secret Society

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Secret SocietyJR Pig SkypeThis is your invitation to join the Limitless Mindset Secret Society, this private community is a result of the really interesting conversations I've had with some very erudite Biohackers who responded to my free 25 minute biohacking consultation offer, which I'll explain again later in this video if you don't know about it already.

While the Biohacking forums online (Longecity.org or the Bulletproof Forums), are surprisingly good, anyone on the internet can join them for free and say anything. You've probably been a part of enough 'free' networking communities (both online and in the 'real' world) to know that the quality of connections you make, the organization of events and information is usually pretty mediocre - you get what you pay for.

If you'd like to more meaningfully connect with a higher quality (dare I say... more elite) community of lifehackers and biohackers I'm going to create a small, private community of people who have taken advantage of my free Biohacking consultation offer, so these will be people I've personally spoken with at length and vetted, they are people who are actually invested in their own Biohacking and kicking ass in life, not self help junkies.

Personal Development Demystified: Apps vs OS

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Your smartphone is actually a surprisingly accurate metaphor for your personal development. You can do personal development either by installing apps or upgrading the operating system.
Let's say your smart phone doesn't have many apps, well you won't be able to do much other than make calls and look at the clock right?
Let's say your smart phone has all apps you desire but it's running an operating system from 5 years ago, it's apps are constantly crashing, it does everything very slowly, you can't multi task or easily switch between functions - you will infuriatingly be able to see all these apps but not be able to fully utilize them.
How does this correspond to person development?

Installing Apps

Is like...

  • Learning a second language
  • Acquiring career skill sets
  • Reading books
  • Studying philosophy
  • Writing daily
  • Getting coaching
  • Getting into entrepreneurship, pickup or social dynamics

Similar to your smartphone the more apps you have the more you can do.

The High Leverage Information Diet

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

I'm Jonathan and I'm an informationaholic.

You hear a lot of Lifehacker's talking about practicing a low information diet, indeed we live in an age of infinite information yet we have very finite time and attention. A lot of lifehacker's decry constant information consumption as a distracting practice. Bruce Lee actually had something really insightful to say about this:

A lot of people do get distracted by the overwhelming amount of information available at our fingertips at any given moment and it prevents them from living happy, productive lives. To combat this I've developed an information consumption regimen that is highly efficient. I present the components and consumption methods of the High Leverage Information Diet.

The Piracetam Protocol

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

{youtube}AjOfuQ2PicI{/youtube}

A certain percentage of people who try it get zero results from Piracetam.

Others will try Piracetam, get a nice productivity buzz for a few hours that's comparable to a cup or two of coffee but when they try to push the dosage up they get headaches, brain fog or run into a tolerance curve quickly. This is part of the reason why the Piracetam source I recommend offers a very flexible 100% money back guarantee.
However, on the other end of the user experience spectrum, a number of anecdotal reports speak in grand terms to Piracetam's capacity as a transformative upgrade tool for the minds of otherwise healthy, young people. It has an uncanny, yet frequently reported effect of bringing back once forgotten memories, both good and bad.
The good news is that for the vast majority of people who try Piracetam, it has a significant, almost immediately noticeable effect on productivity, focus and memory, indeed this is reason it is the most popular smart drug.
The reason for this inconsistency is complex, Piracetam, while frequently sold as a supplement, is a drug with a range of very complex interactions in our neurobiology. To maximize it's effect there really needs to be several high quality cofactors present in your biology.
The Piracetam rabbit hole really goes very deep, yet unfortunately most people who take it just barely poke their heads in it.

Piracetam, a choline source and ALCAR are a favorite of holistic biohackers but there's a specific protocol that should be followed.

Lifehacking Lying: 10 Devilishly Deceptive Ways to Be a Better Liar

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Lying750Deception and use of half truths are such a part of human nature that what's ultimately the most dishonest is to pretend that we are 'real' 100% of the time to everyone. Lifehackers, happy sociopaths and people with healthy egos understand that lying is an inevitable part of the human communication experience. According StatisticBrain.com

  • 60% of people lie at least once during a 10 minute conversation.
  • Men on average tell 6 lies as a day to their partner, boss or colleagues. Women tell 8.
  • 31% of people lie on their resumes.

Inevitably you are going to lie in ways big and small. This article will arm you with some clever ways to lie more effectively and less destructively without breaking the 11th commandment; getting caught.

Why Choose Pharmaceutical Grade Nootropics+3rd Party Verified Sources

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Capitalism

Let me confirm something you already know on a gut level; the supplement industry is a capitalist's wild wild west, a profiteers paradise, an unregulated free market, and consumers should beware.

While the ubiquitous white Nutrition Facts box you see on the labeling of packaging looks official, anyone with basic word processing software can create such a representation of the ingredients ostensibly in a product.

When you realize that no one verifies that the actual individual ingredients are in a given product, you realize how much of a decision to buy and take an supplement is based upon trust.

The Nutrition 'Facts'Fake-NutritionLabel

When supplement companies sell products to consumers they can almost count on the consumers not verifying what they are consuming. Sure the consumers could send products off for testing at 3rd party laboratory but that costs between hundreds and thousands of dollars. While there are some consumer spectroscopy devices coming to market that promise to disrupt multiple industries that prey on the voracious consumer, at the current time consumers have virtually no way of personally determining what they are actually putting in their bodies.

Pharma-Grade300The good news is that one of the really easy ways to make almost certain that you are getting the real stuff is to insist on always buying Pharmaceutical Grade supplements. Why trust Pharmaceutical Grade?

41 Denver Shrinks Prove that Psychologists are mostly just Leeches

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Shrinks-leaches
According to a University of South Florida study 90% of people who quit smoking relapse. I've been a year and half without a cancer stick in between my lips, so I'm justifiably a little proud of beating that statistic. How did I do it?

In 2013 I spent a few months researching the biology of self control and after interviewing several doctors and subject matter experts. Based upon these interviews and my lifelong interest as layperson in the biology of self control, I distilled 20 different uncommon, yet very actionable lifehacks for increasing will power quickly and effectively. I quiet smoking using about five of these lifehacks. I then spent probably 20-30 hours organizing a detailed a multi media guide to self control based upon these lifehacks. Then I released it completely for free (no signup required) on my website, Limitless Mindset. Since I want to help as many people as possible with this information I personally emailed 40 different psychologists in the Denver area and offered to send them this guide completely for free, no strings attached.

I made what I thought was a very safe assumption that these psychologists had clients who would benefit greatly from these kinds of high leverage yet uncommon strategies for self control.

So far out of 41 emailed ZERO have responded.
