The Art of Persuasion on Yourself Episode 173, March 10, 2020
Professional copywriter and expert on persuasion, Andrés Roaro, joins us to talk about the psychology of persuasion, especially how to persuade that most difficult person in your life – you.
“You cannot be happy by hurting other people.” ~ Andrés Roaro
Andrés shares how being bullied as a kid spurned his interest in psychology and personal growth because he wanted to be more popular. That long journey started with trying to meet girls and involvement with the pickup community, then on to attempts at making lots of money online.
Andres wanted to find something that was more aligned with his values and he started to apply what he knew about psychology to himself. He explored his own shadow; the insecurities, pains, and desires. Eventually, he discovered where true happiness is found.
Pain can be an excellent teacher when we don’t work so hard on suppressing it.
