You are a product of your environment – and your ancestors’ environment.
Most animals like to laze around and conserve their energy when they get the chance.
But when they need to move – to find food, to establish new territory, to fight off rivals, to migrate – they move with enthusiasm.
Picture a dog going for a walk with their owner. To a human, it’s a simple walk and the chance to get some fresh air.
For the ancient animal brain lurking in that adorable dog, though?
They’re a wolf – patrolling and exploring with their pack.
They love it because that’s what dogs do. It’s in their nature. After natural disasters, even the most domesticated dogs will team up with each other, form a temporary pack and follow its leader.
You have an animal brain too – a brain that craves movement and physical challenges.
If you – the person reading this – doesn’t crave those things, that’s because you’re a human too. We humans can learn and change our preferences better than any animal.
But your ancient instincts never go away.
This is excellent news. By learning to love exercise, you’re not ‘fighting’ yourself – you’re tuning into hunter-gatherer instincts that lie dormant and yearn to express themselves.
Your nature is on your side here.
So what though?
How does knowing that help you?
On its own, it doesn’t.
But when you combine that with the drills from Motion Mind, you’ll reawaken that inner urge to move, flex, stretch and strengthen.
It’s already in your unconscious, just waiting to come out.

It’s easy to get fired up over a new workout routine.
You think – this is it. This time you’re serious. You’ll stick to it, not matter what.
If you have to force yourself to do it, eventually you’ll stop. You’ll ‘take a break’ for a day or two, then completely lose the habit.
Then you lose all your progress and have to start over.
But what if you could change that pattern, right now?
What if you could learn to genuinely enjoy working out?
Then taking a short break is no big deal. You’ll get back into it because you want to, rather than letting that derail your progress.
Sound too good to be true?
With a touch of hypnosis, rewriting your preferences to enjoy exercising is easy.
That’s why I wrote Motion Mind. You can learn to enjoy working out and getting fitter by sitting still with your eyes closed.

Why should you listen to me when it comes to exercise?
I’m not the fittest guy out there. I mean, I’m only okay. Make me run and I’ll run, ask me to do Hindu squats and I’ll do them.
But I don’t look the part of the sort of guy who’d normally write a book on exercise.
I don’t turn heads when I walk around shirtless – not towards me, at least.
So why should you listen to me?
Because I’m not claiming to be good at exercise – or to make you good at it, either. There are a thousand books on that topic out there already.
But let me ask you this:
What good is a thousand books on how to exercise… if you goof off instead of follow their advice?
That’s where I come in. I can teach you to love working out.
I used to hate exercise. It didn’t help that I was unfit. The idea of getting in shape appealed to me… but whenever I established a new routine, I’d struggle.
If I forced myself, I’d stick with it for a week – maybe even a few.
Then I’d get sick, get distracted, get busy.
I’d take a day off.
That’s turn into three.
Soon, it was as if I’d never had the habit at all. Getting back into it was just as hard as it had been.
Now, I legitimately crave it. A few hours before writing this, I’d had a long day spent writing, reading and negotiating with new people. It wasn’t tough, but it was tiring.
I hadn’t exercised all day. Instead of what would normally happen – me sitting down to do some writing, watch a little TV – I felt the need to move.
If the weather was better, I might have gone for a run.
Instead, I set a new personal best in bodyweight exercises.
That’s amazing to me. I never thought get to this point. At best, exercise was always something I ‘should’ do.
And after a long day, I could ‘get away with’ doing the bare minimum.
I’ve evolved – now, I want to work my body, get healthy and grow stronger.
It wasn’t a fluke. If I can change, so can you.
With a few hypnotic routines to rewire how you think about exercise.
These are quick, simple and easy. There’s nothing for you to do but sit still and think.
Think the right way and you’ll begin to crave exercise.
If that sounds good to you, check out Motion Mind:
In my eBook – Motion Mind – I cover three hypnotic ways to learn to love exercise.
(It’s right there in the subtitle.)
It’s an extremely lean book – you can read this in one sitting. Doing the drills will take longer, but reading about them is fast.
Even so… it’s a little redundant.
See, you don’t even need the Third Way. Not really. The first two will do the trick for almost all of you.
It’s a book about using hypnosis to enjoy working out… and the Third Way is the most hypnotic approach of all.
This is where you bring out the big guns. Any internal resistance you have will falter in the face of these drills.
It involves confronting some inner truths, which not everyone is up for. Don’t mistake the simplicity of drill 3.1 – it alone can surprise you, even as it lays the foundations for the rest of the Third Way.
Then, with drills 3.2 through 3.5, you enter a deep hypnotic trance.
By the end of that, you will learn to love exercise. You will find yourself enjoying it – even craving it.
And how much fitter, healthier and more attractive will you become by then?
If you’ll forgive the pun, you know the drill by now – you can find out by finding Motion Mind right here:
Spelling in English can be tricky.
I’m sure you’ve heard the handy rhyme to help you remember this rule:
I before E
Except after C,
Unless the sound’s “ay”
Like “neighbour” or “sleigh”,
Exceptions to these
Include “science” and “seize”.
That’s not so much a rule as it’s… nothing. It’s nothing.
Similarly, consider this process on how to hypnotise someone:
If you’re new to hypnosis, it pays to follow this process.
If you have some experience with hypnosis, you’re struggling to make it work for someone or you’re bored, you can randomise the order of those steps.
Yes, I said randomise.
You can bring someone out of trance before putting them into it.
You can ratify changes before you create them.
If you know enough hypnosis, you can see how.
It doesn’t stop there. You can delete any of those steps and still make hypnosis work – even Step 2.
Like spelling in English, the rules are better than nothing, but you can’t master the field until you discard them.
What do spelling and hypnosis have in common? Why should both of these have such relaxed approaches to the rules?
Because human brains are wonderfully messy, dynamic, weird and powerful. Your brain can hold contradictory rules in your head and not explode because reality is messy, dynamic, weird and powerful too.
It’s the only way we can function in such a complex and absurd world.
So, you might think exercise ‘isn’t for you’.
You might not like it. In fact, you might actively loathe it.
You wished you could enjoy it, though. That would make staying healthy, focused and energetic easy.
Well, guess what?
There’s no rule in your brain that says you have to be this way. You can change, quickly and easily, until you love exercising.
Until you crave it.
That’s what Motion Mind is all about. Your mind has a natural craving for movement. If you don’t like working out, then some other rule is running interference with it.
So change the rules.
Or outright ignore them.
Get the result you want right here:
You might be surprised by how flexible – and programmable – your own preferences are.
You can, for example, learn to love exercise.
Even if you dislike it now.
Even if you hate it.
You can try all sorts of behavioural tricks. Things like rewarding yourself after a workout, doing something to psyche you up or having an accountability buddy.
All those, and more, can be useful.
You know best how you operate. Maybe penalising yourself with a donation to a cause you hate will work for you.
Or maybe it’ll make you dig your heels in.
I leave it to you to figure all that out.
But if that all seems more hassle than it’s worth…
Or too gimmicky to actually work…
And you want to really learn to like it, not keep tricking yourself into doing it…
… that’s where these approaches – the “3 Hypnotic Ways to Learn to Love Exercise” in Motion Mind’s subtitle – come in.
You can rework your own preferences so you don’t need to bribe yourself.
You can do it simply because you want to.
Forget spending money of gym memberships and new workout gear – without enjoying what you do, you know they’ll gather dust in the back of your closet within a season.
So lay the foundations, get this right and make this investment first:
Consider this short tale of woe.
“Driving isn’t without risks. In Australia, thousands of people die in traffic fatalities each year. Many more are injured. What makes it worse is that your reckless driving doesn’t just put you at risk – it compromises the safety of everyone else, too.”
“Therefore, we must ban all private car ownership. For your safety, we’re closing the roads!”
“Uh… isn’t that plan… you know, ridiculous?”
“Oh, look who thinks they’re smarter than the scientists.”
Policies aren’t based on science. Sometimes they’re based on data – but that’s often in the sense of “this movie is based on real life events”. Science requires controlled environments and replication, which are difficult to pull off in policy.
Anyway, I’m sure you see the analogy to current events here. Scientists say “covid is…”, politicians say “therefore we’ll…” and most folks can’t see the enormous gap in the middle there.
Lockdowns are based on scientific data.
This fictitious plan to lower road fatalities is based on scientific data, too.
But the existence of data doesn’t tell you whether either plan is effective, moral or even sane. If the data says “lockdowns slow the spread of covid”, that’s not the answer to the question of whether they’re a good idea.
That’s barely even the start of that question.
There’s no evidence that even says lockdowns are worth it – that, in the long term, the harm caused is less than the harm spared. Yet people talk as if science has proved lockdowns are the best approach.
It hasn’t. Not by a long shot.
Remember that the next time someone shrieks “science!!!” or “data!!!” on social media.
The idea of closing roads is absurd. In 2019, the idea of deliberately tanking the economy and quarantining the healthy was just as absurd, so I wouldn’t rule it out.
Anything can happen.
If you do find yourself having to walk everywhere, I hope you’re in decent shape for it.
The best way to do that is to learn to love exercise.
I’m not the fittest guy out there. I’m not going to appear on the cover of a fitness magazine – ever.
But, hey, I used to dislike working out and now I genuinely enjoy it. So while I might not be a fitness model, I am fitter than I would be otherwise.
I used the tactics outlined in Motion Mind and it worked for me. Heck, what I cover in that book is overkill compared to what I used. Chances are, you’ll only need a fraction of the tips I cover in that.
Get your hands on it here:
It’s easy for many people to go from feeling demoralised to feeling determined. You may have to dig deep, grit your teeth and fire up, but you can do it.
This can be useful. Heck, it’s how a lot of good comes into this world. Someone hits rock bottom, mutters ‘no more’ and turns their life around.
It’s also exhausting and risky.
Measuring yourself against others is a losing game. When they improve, you could bemoan how they’re pulling ahead of you even further.
Or you could celebrate that – which is a much happier and wiser thing to do.
Neither of those sounds like hypnosis to you, I’m sure.
Maybe they are, maybe they’re not.
But it does change your brain at your unconscious level, so it does the same thing as it.
When you read Motion Mind, you’ll pick up simple drills you can do in your spare time. They’re not complicated – like most sports and workout routines, you get the benefits by doing something simple with discipline.
Do these drills and you’ll learn to love exercise – fast.

In The Triple Crossroads, I don’t just talk about your future – I give you real, effective, practice techniques to bring it to life. When you study it closely, you will learn:
But I have to warn you:
It takes persistence to use these techniques.
That means they take time.
That means the sooner you begin, the more you’ll benefit. Don’t let the clock run out on you with this.

I’m not mucking around here.
If you want to learn the basics of any craft, you can find tutorials on YouTube.
If you want all the satisfaction, glory and success that mastery brings, though?
That’s harder to find. Books, courses, even a mentor can only get you so far.
The best course on how to paint won’t make you a master. It takes something else – something ineffable, that no simple book can convey.
Either that or it’s a simple four step process.
How could that be, though? If it were that simple, wouldn’t everyone do it?
Nah, because the usual filters apply.
It takes time and effort to master something. Less if you follow these steps, but it’s never a trivial amount. Most folks give up well before then.
There are no shortcuts on this path, but that doesn’t mean I can’t illuminate it for you.
Who illuminated it for me?
A thorough look at the history of science.
Most advancements come in increments. In almost every great scientific revolution, some inspired genius followed these four steps and changed our understanding forever.
When I realised how many expert martial artists followed the same process, I knew I’d found a process that works for anything.
And, sure enough, it’s how I mastered (and continue to master) hypnosis.
If there’s something you’d love to learn but don’t know where to begin, start with The Triple Crossroads. Your future self, with deep skills and knowledge in what you learn, will thank you for it now.
