Recently my woman was telling me an amusing account of how, at her mom’s Manhattan resale shop during the 2016 election, she saw some customers reacting via shaking & even crying at the mere name of Donald Trump being mentioned.
Yes, just saying the man’s name, she said:
“Caused grown women to visibly shake and literally start crying.”
She said it was one of the most pathetic things she’d ever witnessed, and she was not even a Trump fan. She also said her Millennial friends at the time were just as weak. On Facebook or while drinking their Pabst Blue Ribbon beers and $8 pumpkin spice lattes on the way home to their parents’ basements they posture and talk about being strong and independent… only to fold like a wet noodle after Trump got elected, for example, needing to take days off from work, school, etc.
I find it all rather amusing to think about.
And, it’s the one reason I am looking forward to Trump getting re-elected:
Simply to see all the internet tough guys & gals hold candlelight vigils.
It almost makes me wish I was still on Facebook just to witness it…
Speaking of Trump and riling up the sob sisters he so easily triggers:
Currently, I am reading his book “Think Big & Kick Ass.”
It’s quite the valuable read, and it’s especially interesting how you can observe Trump using many of the principles inside it on a near-daily basis. My favorite so far is his views on getting even with people, which is not only a way to harness negativity, but guaranteed to fill a big mug full of sob sister tears.
But getting even is just one of many ways to harness & profit from negativity.
I talk about a far more powerful way in the March “Email Players” issue.
Specifically, a secret, almost cartoonish way, to use raw, sob sister-triggering Negativity to potentially help give your business and your brand a prestigious kind of “preeminence”, where the highest quality customers, clients, and leads are more likely to be drawn to you, want to buy from your business (and quite possibly ONLY from your business), and be more eager & willing to pay you top fees and prices to do so — even if you’re a raw newbie fresh off the turnip truck, just starting out.
Yes, it takes time and patience, and ambition to make the info work.
Which means, most people should not bother with it. Especially those looking for “NEW!” when none of it is new, it’s just arranged in a way where it’s more applicable & accessible, even for the newbie.
Okay enough of this.
If you want in on this issue, time is short.
After the deadline, it’ll be too late, Pokey.
