What Is Power?

What Is Power?

Power is understanding and controlling yourself. When having power, you can easily influence people and you don't feel helpless.

Feeling helpless and knowing that you don't leave an impression on people are two of the worst feelings to have.

In his books, Robert Greene shares phenomena that make up us humans and our society. For instance he talks about the fact that everyone has an ego and wears a mask and that appearance matters.

His books are often described as very manipulative and evil but Greene's intention lies not in manipulating others but in understanding human behaviour and using it in a way to help you get ahead.

By being aware of the things, you can tailor your behaviour and become powerful.

"Never Put Too Much Trust In Friends"

Friendships involve emotions and feelings that can affect business relationships and career success.

The Dark Side And Self Love

The Dark Side And Self Love

Everyone has narcissistic traits and a dark side. They are developed during childhood. People who never developed self esteem as a child become narcissistic, aggressive or dramatic and always have to be the center of attention.

"The only way to change yourself is to see that you have this issues."

You can turn your dark side into something good and use it in a healthy way.

Take your self love and turn it outwards. Be empathetic and understanding.

Check out my summary of "The Laws of Human Nature" for more on this.

Seduction is a huge power as it makes people feel desire. Thus, you can influence them more easily.

Qualities of a great seducer: They enter the other persons spirit and listen closely to what they have to say. They reflect the things they desire back.

Qualities of anti-seducers: They preach, moralise and judge the behaviour of other people. They are not generous with their spirit and the things they do.

Vulnerability And Insecurity

Vulnerability And Insecurity

Insecure people are too focused on their flaws which is considered as unattractive.

Vulnerability is seductive while insecurity isn't.

The Problem With Porn

A relationship takes time, patience, work and rejection. People that watch lots of porn get out of touch with that. They think that love and sex come easily and quickly. They don't understand the signals by other people anymore.

The Importance Of Body Language

The Importance Of Body Language

In your childhood, your life depended on body language.

Because the entire body is involved, words don't matter that much. Body language doesn't lie and also your voice betrays you. For instance, nervous people speak very fast. A certain tone shows off confidence and leadership qualities.

It is important to learn and understand other people's body language.
