    I`m a devoted user of this erection dysfunction treatment method “bumbu awesome plan” (Google it). I utilize it before I go to bed at night and notice a huge advancement in my s3xual drive. I just can`t keep my hands off my wife and my plumbing works better than ever. I discovered the guideline quite effective and I am just content that it doesn`t involve any synthetic and chemical solutions.

    "How to speak so people want to listen"

    Video Length, 9:58
    Average watch time 5:34

    Thats under 60% of the video. Passing a test in school requires 60%.
    I'm just stating some facts here.

    In the beginning was the word .... this guy is right on about the importance of our voice and the power behind it tesla said that the keys to the universe were sound and vibration

    Why is it always that the most important thing appears to be to try and make people want to listen. Surely instead the most important thing should be to spread truth

    You need to rehearse the speed of your voice and slow it down, as you are trying to win by not giving the listener time to evaluate, or concider your speech which you demonstrate this overpowering attitude.

    I got a horrible vibe watching all those people do that. I actually had to shut it off because it felt like cattle being led to the slaughter.

  • Robert Lee

    My only problem is that if I have to constantly SELF MONITOR what I'm saying to someone, it feels completely calculated and not genuine. Eventually u are going to complain. Eventually you are going to be negative. It cannot be all sunshine. All sunshine is a fake, good two shoes, inhuman robot. And u will never get to know someone that way.

    When he says judging is he talking about judging persons or judging behaviour? There's a huge difference between the two: the former is counter productive while the latter is necessary where there are shortcomings.
    "Standing in your own truth" sounds very subjective.
    The exercises at the end of the talk are really great!

    Judgment is the ability to identify wrong and condemn it. If you don't have power of judgement then you luck wisdom. Wisdom is identifying right from wrong, ability to discern. I don't entirely agree with Him. I can not speak to impress people by leaving them in their wrong. Truth should remain truth and passed straight. What's the benefit of building on sand when you have a rock.

  • MassacreAtTiffany
    MassacreAtTiffany Month ago

    Changing the way you are to have people listening to you when you say something... it's a bit like having a gorgeous actor playing the part of an aesthetically plain looking person in that person's biography in movie form. People have to learn to listen without judging what's not important about them. if someone is giving you the solution to all of your problem, would you not listen to said person because that very person has an ugly spot on her face? Or made a typo? or because you don't like their hairdo, choice in music or whatever? Well, that would be foolish. If everyone changes reality as a means to an end, then we will all have an idea of reality which is pure bullshit. I think there is enough bullshit in this world as it is.
