How to Be Smarter…Instantly

The most interesting and most successful people I know are smart.

The best writers I know are frighteningly smart.

So being smarter and raising my IQ has long been a goal of mine.

Some say you’re stuck with the neural cards you’ve been dealt.

But I’m convinced that intelligence can be increased and IQ raised.

Increasingly, researchers are, too.

Here are some ways to do it…virtually instantly…

Please Read This First

Hey, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.

Whether you came by link or by search…

…whether you’re a current or aspiring copywriter, marketer, entrepreneur, creative thinker, or none of the above…

…I’m darned glad you’re here.

My goal is to provide you with all sorts of great info and insights on persuasion … creativity … copywriting … marketing … direct response … self-development … and anything that helps you be more successful—personally as well as professionally.  (That sure gives me a lot of leeway, doesn’t it?)

Since this is a blog, I guess I should also tell you some of what I’ve been up to lately…

Just got word that a magalog I did for Boardroom/Bottom Line Books has successfully launched yet another book:  Breakthroughs in Natural Healing.  Look for it in your mailbox soon.

(What? You’re not on Boardroom’s list? Shame on you—it’s one of the best, least expensive ways to get a direct mail education.

Dramatically Improve Your Copywriting—without Writing a Word

Copywriting is about being persuasive.

So if you want to get better at copywriting, practice being persuasive. In person as well as in print.

Notice what works.  Notice what doesn’t.  How do you deal with objections? How do you lay the groundwork for persuasion (bonding, getting them into an agreeable mood)? How do you “close the sale”?

Moshe Feldenkrais was a groundbreaking teacher of human potential and  mind-body development.

His revolutionary system of mind and body “re-education” for stressed and dysfunctional brains and bodies has achieved miraculous results for thousands around the world.

He has some fascinating insights for anyone interested in achieving all they’re capable of.

He says that there is no difference between “geniuses”—those who seem to have an exceptional ability in a given field—and the rest of us.

They are neither smarter nor or more “gifted.”

They have simply searched for and found (or stumbled upon) a way of doing something that works incredibly well for them.

The Illusion of Talent

The Illusion of Talent

Inborn talent is finally being exposed as an illusion.

The good news now is that anyone acquire talent.

The bad news is, it takes some effort. And it has to be the right kind of effort.

Books like Talent Is Overrated, The Talent Code, Bounce and Outliers all agree that what really matters is the amount and quality of your practice. More practice is better. Much more practice is much better. And best of is practice that’s slow and deliberate, always challenging yourself to go slightly beyond your current ability.

So now you’re talented. Now what?

For as Calvin Coolidge said: “Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.”
