Talking The Popular Life...lol

I saw a google ad for this on fmylife so I clicked it because I knew it was one of those sites that tries to sell you some random ebook for $29.95 that's going to change your life. Reading this reminds me of a certain person.

I wouldn't usually post this shit but it's a very amusing read, and I pray nobody is stupid enough to actually buy into this.

--

Some people find me arrogant. Don't like that? Leave. I don't need you anyway. I have enough people desperately seeking my attention. Oh, but my massive popularity is no accident. I studied social psychology and human behavior for years to alter my personality and become a master of social manipulation and human interaction.

Now Iím the person everybody tries to impress and wants to be seen with. I have legions of friends wherever I go. People give me practically whatever I please and it's all so easy for me. Half of the time, I donít even have anything valuable to say, but people still just canít get enough of me. And while jealous losers can't stand me, everyone else thinks Iím the greatest thing in the world Ė and theyíre right, I am.

You already know me:

-Iím that slacker at work who gets promoted over your hard working ass

-Iím the loudmouth talking over your best comments with useless crap to cheers of admiration

-Iím the one who's out having a good time while you sit around thinking about Ďhow great your future will beí

And then there's YOU..

I see you watching me and thinking to yourself: ďyou just wait and see who I becomeĒ. Itís the only way you can justify your lonely, wasted existence. But deep down you already know what you'll become: the same sad, disconnected person you are right now.

While youíre living in fantasy land, Iím milking the real world for everything it offers: popularity, admiration, endless friends, sex, and success. But you donít want that anyway, right? Lie to yourself.

Let me guess: what youíre going through now is just temporary? Once you get that ďjobĒ, that ďdegreeĒ, or find that ďspecial someoneĒ everything will change? Twenty years from now youíll be looking at everyone and thinking the exact same thing. Itís the same thing that poor, bearded guy on the back of the bus is thinking. Donít believe me? Go talk to him and see for yourself.

If you donít change right now, youíll become just like that guy on the bus. Youíll soon look into the mirror and realize youíre old and your dreams have passed you by. Instead of dreaming about your future, youíll dream of getting back the youth that you're wasting away right now.

The only way to prevent this from happening to you is to change who you are and how you naturally interact with other people.

I have a degree in Psychology, but Iím no academic. In fact, itís no secret the academic community disapproves of what I do here. They think using modern psychology to teach people how to manipulate others for popularity is an abuse of science, but I donít need anyoneís approval.

Unlike them, Iím not motivated by publishing deals, tenures, or academic approval/recognition. I donít have to censor my information or my language to meet someone elseís notion of Ďproperí. Maybe some think my straight talk is unprofessional, but Iím the one with the solutions and thatís what matters. I change peopleís lives. They just talk about doing it.

If youíre looking for a standard self-help book, look elsewhere. My book contains no canned lines, motivational stories, useless clichťs, 2 hour lectures on why confidence is important, or the typical ďbe yourselfĒ advice.
I donít waste time with any of this irrelevant, recycled, junk.

These so called ďexpertsĒ fill their books with such useless crap for one reason: it sells. Such books may give you an hour or two of post-read nostalgia, but this quickly wears off and youíre back to being your miserable, lonely, self.

Itís like walking out of a theatre after an action movie and feeling like a super hero for a few moments. Itís a false sense of reality that quickly fades away. Iím here to change your reality, not temporarily distort your perception.

I provide clear, to the point explanations of what you need to do and how to do it. Instead of telling you why confidence is important, I tell you how to alter your personality so that you are confident. Itís that simple.

Don't expect me to lie to you about how great person you are either. Iím here to tell you the exact opposite. Being "yourselfĒ is not the solution, itís the problem. You need to change and thatís what I teach you to do.

I realize some people will find that notion offensive, but unlike others, I work for a 'realistic perspective', not one that is motivated by pleasing everyone, or following conventions.

While weíre at it, donít bother emailing me about your failures, your awful childhood, or anything else of the like either. Your past is a waste of my time. If you want someone to listen to your sad stories, go pay an ďexpertĒ $200/hour. Iím far too busy and uninterested. I only care about right now.

I already know what you're going through anyway. You try to be a good person and say the right things, but people just arenít interested in you. Why? All your Ďgreat commentsí mean virtually nothing because people donít care about this stuff.

Other people are too preoccupied with themselves to keep track of everything you say. Mental processes are naturally efficient. Thereís no time to keep score of your witty comments. Instead, opinions form in the blink of an eye.

Thatís why all the one-liners and other crap social ďgurusĒ feed you is so useless. Nobody pays that much attention! Opinions of likeability/importance are based on other, less obvious, factors.

Fortunately, this is a system that can easily be manipulated to your advantage - and thatís exactly what my book mercilessly teaches you to do.

Remember, if ďbeing yourselfĒ was the solution to the problem, you wouldnít have a problem to begin with. Individualism isnít worth it if itís diminishing your quality of life. Iím not going to waste time trying to convince you to believe this (if you donít already). If you want to continue to justify wasting your life under the guise of ďindividualismĒ, have at it. Who am I to interfere with mental Darwinism? I'll let you fools die out with pride.

Iím giving you the exact same strategies I used to change my personality and master social manipulation and human interaction. You will not find these techniques anywhere else. Iím going to overhaul your entire way of thinking, behaving, and interacting with other people.

You will learn to exploit social thinking processes that are engrained in us since birth that virtually nobody else is aware of. Such skills can generate tons of friends, popularity, admiration, respect, and the opportunity to live the experiences you desire (emotionally, sexually, professionally, etc.).

My methodology is clear: I avoid giving you bland generalities and instead tell you exactly what to do. There is no room for political correctness, diplomacy, or your personal opinions. I tell you what is right and wrong and I don't care if you disagree (that's your loss).

You will get the tools you need, whether you approve of them or not. This isnít about body language, one liners, motivational stories, visualizations, or any other similarly mass marketed junk. It is a 56 page book filled with straight up, simple strategies that will make you popular and well liked.

This includes:

* how to alter the backbone of your personality, which governs how you think and behave, to automatically act in a socially superior manner
* how to use manipulative psychology to alter the thinking of other people and make them like, respect and admire you
* how to use simple behavioral alterations that will automatically make people interested in you
* how to prevent damaging behavior like ďself talkĒ which inhibits socially productive responses leaving you behind
* how to psychologically train your mind so you naturally become an extrovert
* how to evoke positive responses from people, no matter what youíre saying to them
* how to remove feelings of doubt, fear and uncertainly in social situations
* how to find and forge friendships with the most important, relevant people in society
* how to detach yourself from caring about the opinions of specific individual people and focus on gaining the admiration of the greater majority
* how to use people to your advantage, as opposed to having them use you
* how to get inside peopleís heads and make them think youíre being honest with them, whether you are or not
* how to become popular and successful just like me and reap all that society and life has to offer

Life is all about choices. Right now you have two options:

1)you can continue to waste whatever youth you have left being lonely and miserable
2)you can get my book, apply my strategies, and live the life you want to live.

Just remember, perhaps the one thing you have going for you right now is the ability to make this choice. Everyday people just like you wake up and realize theyíve waited too long and have wasted their youth. Donít kid yourself, if you donít change, thatís going to be you (and a lot sooner than you think).

You can order* my book with your credit card through PayPal for only $29.95. Once you order, youíll be able to download it instantly.

Either click on the PayPal button below and change your life while you still can, or choose not to and go wander around the mall by your miserable self for awhile instead. Iím sure it will make for great memories when youíre sitting alone in an old folkís home staring out the window at the life you chose not to live.

Stop waiting for this to happen. Make your move and order The Popular Life now before it's too late.


--post too long apparently

What's being said about The Popular Life?

"After college my life spun out of control. I had practically no friends and would never get invited places. The Popular Life changed everything for me. I'm a completely different person now and I haven't looked back. Took some practice and getting used to, but I can't believe the progress I've made. " - Rick, NY

"This book gave me exactly what I needed: a new life." - John V.

"I remember getting so depressed looking at Facebook and realizing how pathetic my life was in comparison to everyone else's. That's what motivated me to make the necessary changes and it was The Popular Life that gave me the tools I needed to overhaul my personality and make it happen." - Jillian, MA

"I used to lay awake at night angry about how boring my life was (and how fun everyone else's seemed to be). The Popular Life taught me how to live the life I felt so guilty before about not living. These days, I sleep just fine." - DW, CA

"I remember for years sitting alone on Saturday nights. These days, I actually have to reject offers to go out! It's amazing and a funny thing to say, but I'm actually popular. Thanks so much." - Connie, MS

"I can't believe how interested people are in me now. It's almost strange trying to get used to it." - Ryan H.

"Your blunt and unfiltered advise is incredibly valuable. It changed how I see the world and other people and truly had a monumental impact on my life. Not only do I now have an incredibly active and fun social life, people now respect me at work and girls are texting me all the time looking to hook up. I'm something that I wasn't before: happy. Thanks!" - Dan E., AZ

This is just too good...

I lol'd when he explains how it took a degree in Psychology to understand the "intricacies" of acting like a douche.
