    Be A Man Of Influence Without Being A Manipulative Jerk -MTP261

    Be A Man Of Influence Without Being A Manipulative Jerk -MTP261

    My guest co-host this week is a disciple of Robert Cialdini himself, only not quite retired just yet and IMHO a bit more practical in how he speaks about his area of expertise. The topic, of course, is influence...more specifically, how to be more influential and gain personal power, all without being obnoxious, unethical or creepy about it. Why is it that so few men are truly influential? Could it be because most of us simply don't know how power and influence work? What is the relationship between wisdom, benevolence and leadership relative to influence? How about the art of persuasion...can it EVER be ethical, or is it simply a dirty word? What are the key differences between influence and straight-up manipulation? How is dating and attraction like sales? Let's just say solid sales strategies are VERY similar to effective attraction principles, whether you like it that way or not. Could that be why the pickup artist era was infamous for such manipulative or even flat-out sleazy tactics? Wait until you hear the stark contrast between those ideas and how Brian met and attracted the woman in his life. Add it all up, and this podcast will help propel you to greater heights as a leader and as a man of influence, all while guarding you against being manipulated and 'owned' in your own life. What more can you ask from an episode? Are you sick of second place? Let's put a plan of action in place that empowers you to WIN...not only with women, but also in your career and in your social life. That opportunity and many more are waiting for you at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

    Make Better Decisions, Do Better With Women - MTP260

    Make Better Decisions, Do Better With Women - MTP260

    Co-Host Gleb Tsipursky (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/gleb) My guest, Dr. Gleb Tsipursky is a world-class expert and bestselling author in the areas of mental blind spots and cognitive biases. According to Gleb himself, it was the series of rotten decisions his parents tended to make during his early childhood that drove his passion for helping others to make better decisions...thereby 'future-proofing' themselves, to use his term. Indeed, there's no doubt that better decision making leads to better relationships and indeed a better life in general. So how come this isn't taught in school? Well, in part it's all because such skill often accompanies maturity and the accumulation of wisdom. Nevertheless, Gleb has a number of shortcuts you can use to identify and squash the mindsets and habits that lead to bad decisions and the dire consequences thereof. The fascinating part is how simply recognizing the weird but common ways we as humans hamstring ourselves is the first and best step to prevention. Tune in as Gleb shares the different types of biases we tend to have, all in decidedly entertaining style. For example, thrill to detailed descriptions of such crazinness as Fundamental Attribution Error, The Empathy Gap and The Halo and Horns Effect. Next, discover how Pessimism Bias devastates our ability to meet and relate to women. What is The Illusion of Transparency, and how does it explain why women flake out on us even after they give us their number? And wait until you get a load of how Overconfidence Bias works...it's just nuts. Finally see the forest for the trees and gain the confidence, admiration, respect and attraction of women everywhere.

    The Tragedy Of Trying Too Hard - MTP259

    The Tragedy Of Trying Too Hard - MTP259

    A couple of episodes ago we talked about how we can be our own worst enemy. But upon reflection, we left out one of the most devastating--and common--ways we do that. I'm talking, of course, about trying too hard. Do men, especially so-called 'nice guys', do this more than women? If so, why is that? Can it really be as simple as because men do EVERYTHING to impress chicks? But what are the ways that women tend to try too hard? Why do people think this works to attract people, when the weird psychological effect is the exact opposite? Instead of pushing people away, how can we PULL them in magnetically instead? And what's the difference between needy approval seeking as opposed to simply being too damn perky, upbeat, enthusiastic or optimistic? Why do people persist in trying too hard, even when they already realize they're 'pushing it uphill' and their efforts are doomed to failure? And what's up with men's tendency to try logicking women into liking us? Women often say they 'want a man to pursue them', but how is that different than chasing in desperation? Of course, no discussion such as this would be complete without straight talk on when to actually give up.

    Success With Women Using Life's Golden Checklist - MTP258

    Success With Women Using Life's Golden Checklist - MTP258

    When my guest Michael Lassen was on the show for the first time, you guys absolutely raved over the content he brought to the table. Now, he's back to talk about what he calls the 'The Golden Checklist', aka 'The Success Checklist'. By now you've probably heard of Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules For Life, Stephen Covey's concept of listing Unifying Principles, or even my own Depth Chart system for evaluating long-term relationship potential. You may have even formulated a 'bucket list' for yourself. But what Michael has done here is above and beyond all that. Drawing directly from the practices of Warren Buffett, this lightning in a bottle will empower you to sort out who you are, where you're going, and best of all...who the right woman is to invite into your reality. For years, Michael suffered through bad decisions like many of us do, and found himself wondering why he was where he was, and doing what he was doing. In this episode we break down Michael's methodology so you can replicate it yourself, ultimately contributing to a dramatic increase in not only your quality of life, but the positive response you receive from high quality women everywhere. And if you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, talk to me 25 minutes for free about putting a plan of action together that gets the right woman into your life once and for all. You can schedule that--and do so much more--when you visit https://mountaintoppodcast.com

    When We're Our Own Worst Enemy - MTP257

    When We're Our Own Worst Enemy - MTP257

    Every time Big Will Hicks co-hosts this show you can count on a lot of fun and laughs. This show is no different, although it hammers home some more serious facts as well this time around. The hard truth for many of us as men is we're our own worst enemy. Will and I acknowledge we can both relate, looking on our own respective pasts. We've both also buried far more male friends than female ones. So what's the deal? Why do men die younger, get into more accidents, get involved in violent crime, go to jail more often and--of course--seem to struggle more relating to MOTOS than women do? How come we talk ourselves out of the bedroom with women with surprising consistency? Why do we blow it so often with them, despite success being right there for the taking? And how come we lose our temper--and our jobs--practically in the blink of an eye? Well, it often comes down to bad decision making. We as men lead, and women are hard-wired to follow a strong masculine man who acts in her best interest. Fail to exhibit that and she loses attraction. But what happens when SHE becomes our passion and purpose? Well, you guessed it...that's a bad decision. We'll cover all of these angles and more, including how men stand in their own way whenever they need help with anything, even mental health or, hell...going to ANY kind of doctor. For sure, we also cover why we stack the deck against ourselves on dates, in relationships, in the bedroom, and particularly when we pretend we're 'Captain Save-A-Ho'. If you can relate at all to the topics presented in this show, isn't it time to get on the phone with me for 25-minutes to put a plan of action together for your future success? I've made bad decisions and eventually emerged victorious, and you can do the same. The first call won't cost you a dime, and you can schedule right at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

    Is "Living Your Best Life" A Scam? - MTP256

    Is "Living Your Best Life" A Scam? - MTP256

    We're told we ought to get off the couch and 'live our best life'. Yet, especially after a year of what we've all been through, the rampant cries of 'YOLO' only seem to lead to ever-increasing FOMO. My co-host Tommy Breedlove is the author of the book Legendary, and he returns for an off-the-cuff discussion of what it really means to live life to the fullest. I mean, do we really need to be rich, famous and/or hyper-macho and fill our lives non-stop with crazy--or even dangerous--adventures? That seems utterly exhausting at best, if not terrifying at worst. What's more, it seems like a whole lot of pressure...especially considering all the 'highlight reels' we see on Facebook and Instagram. So then, what are the secrets to living OUR best life...rather than someone else's? I mean, is it ambitious enough to simply contribute our one eight-billionth part as a member of the human race? How much of our life can reasonably spent celebrating the mundane? Is the 'American Dream' really what we want? Is happiness itself overrated? What's the weird psychological trick we often play on ourselves in this culture thinking we're going for what we want, when we're really not? What's that one most elusive feature to true fulfillment? And what's the factor that most often leads to embodying it? Should you 'find what you love and let it kill you'? Get a whole lot of what you want, and hopefully not a lot of what you don't in this entertaining yet thought-provoking episode.

Great podcast host

Scot is a great podcast host and provides terrific insights for men who want to be better men! Excellent interviewer who ensures that those being interviewed look good, as opposesdd to trying to shine the spotlight on themselves.
