Mindset and Persuasion with Derren Brown
WHAT STORY ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF?
Whatever it is, you’re creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
You’re projecting your story onto everyone around you without even realizing it.
That’s why mentalists are so successful- they suggest a story to you that you accept as true.
Whatever your way of thinking, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
You can be free of your own story.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with someone who changed his own way of thinking to become an incredible illusionist and mentalist: Derren Brown.
Derren Brown uses magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship to
create series and specials on stage and television. He’s won two Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Entertainment and has also written books for magicians as well as the general public.
He doesn’t use his skills to deceive others for his own benefit. Instead, his acts are often designed to expose the methods of faith healers and mediums.
So get ready to learn why humans are so easily persuaded on Episode 722.
