A Wealth of Ignorance

A Wealth of Ignorance;  Why the rich get richer

 

 

“Ignorance is Not bliss, in finances ignorance causes poverty!”  Tony Robbins

 

There isnt a one of us out here that haven’t received money advice from a friend, co-worker, book, boss, etc.  The amount information or misinformation thrown at us about money is astonishing!  

     One of the top 3 peices of advice I have received in my life came while I was in Malaysia.  I was there with a good friend of mine, a self made Millionaire.  We were driving in his car through the capital of Kuala Lumpur on the way to a business meeting near KLCC (the Twin Towers).  I was young and excited to be around him and his colleagues.  In an attempt to participate in his circle I told him about a great business idea an aquantence of mine had, it was a Million dollar idea!  As I was giving him the overview, he stopped me in mid-sentence.  He interrupted and asked me a question; “how much money does your friend make” he asked.  I replied that he made over $150,000 a year.  He then looked at me and said, if your friend knew how to make a Million dollars, he would be a Millionaire.  He then went on to explain to me about advice and mentors.  He told me that if I wanted to make $150K/year that my friend could certainly tell me how to do that, but he doesnt know how to make a Million dollars a year.  He then cautioned me about taking advice from people who have not done it already, and people who are not where you want to be.  He advised me to seek out counsil and advice from educated, experienced, and proven men.  

     This conversation drastically changed my life forever.  From that point onward I saught out advice from those who have already accomplished what I am trying to do.  Talk about a shortcut.  A surefire way to the top as fast as you can go.   Learn from the mistakes of others, and follow the proven formulas for success in whatever category of your life that is.  Of course this is not to say that common people in our lives have nothing to offer.  They may indeed have some great ideas; however actual implimentation of those ideas into monetary success are two different things.

     I have said this for years:  “Wall Street University is the most expensive education that you can buy”.  

The sheer percentage of people who lose money in the markets is astounding!  Your odds of actually making a profit trading securities to any mesure of real useable equity growth is extremely low.  By this I am saying that most people will lose money trading securities.  Those who do manage to make money do not make an amount that could make them a living or provide for a secure future.  There ARE people who make money in investments as a living.  They are very few in comparison.  If you wish to enter the world of investments and securities, do not waste your money paying Wall Street University tuition, learn from those who actually make enough money to produce the same results you are looking for.  

     Much of the “investment” and advice we get on money is stemmed from our Great Depression.  People still dont trust banks, how many times have you heard saying such as “rich people are greedy” “save your money” “the rich keep getting richer and we just get poorer” “start a savings” and the plethora of other sayings that we have heard from childhood?  These sayings are all stated by people in our lives that really dont have money.  “Money is the root of all evil”.  “money cant buy happiness”.

     The world is full of accomplishers.  People who have realized their goals and dreams.  Those who have found the path to success.  We Do Not need to reinvent the wheel.  Invention is wonderful and that is how progress is made.  But most of us are not at that point in our lives.  We are not going to change the world with our innovative ideas until we have gotten our lives and fincances to a point where we can actually impliment those ideas and make them reality.  

     Focus on gaining wealth first.  Do this by following the patterns and practices of those who have gone before you and found the way.  If a trader isnt making money in real time, dont follow his advice.  If an investor isn’t performing at the top of his game dont mimic him.  

     “it takes money to make money”.  How many times have we heard that.  I have another write up on this, but sufice it to say for now that that is what poor people say.  The truth is investing is about making your money work.  The majority of people in this world work for their money.  Sell their time for an hourly rate.  The wealthy make their money work for them.  And they do that through proper investments and strategies.

Glock 34 with extended/threaded Wolf barrel

So I took this to the range to test it at longer distances than guys normally shoot their pistols regularly.  I wanted to see how it would paper at 25 and 50 yards with the Wolf barrel.  This pistol has Trijicon Big Dot sites on it.

This is how it did.

3 rounds of stock FMJ at 25 yards.  All in the 10 ring.

Behavioral Programming working for readers!

I’ve been getting lots of texts and emails regarding my book and how people use it in every day life. I’ve selected a few to share with you to show how varied and widespread it can be used.

BP logo

 

#1 I work in a covert capacity for a law enforcement entity and have worked with a multitude of confidential human sources in the course of my career. There are always challenges in this type of work and Kelly Alwood’s philosophies, in this book Behavioral Programming, speak to those issues with practical and applicable techniques.
One example of application ocurred when I was developing a new human source; we will call her Fatimah. I wanted to identify the best approach to build a rapport with her and determine her potential motivation. Due to time constraints, I needed to recruit her as soon as possible and remembered Kelly’s coined technique of “Brute Force Brain Hacking”, which is often used for a “difficult” target of recruitment but in my case was an issue of limited time. I needed to put a full court press on Fatimah to successfully recruit her without jeopardizing the newly developed rapport. I recalled three techniques from Kelly’s book that I thought would best suit the variables that I was working with; the “four personality traits” (Ch6), a “blitz” version of AFECT (Ch6) and the Reticular Formation (Ch8).
While talking with Fatimah, I pointed out a woman crossing the street carrying numerous bags while also pushing a stroller. Fatimah mentioned that she was probably a single mother who was just looking to make “ends meet” while taking care of her family. Utilizing that information, I was able to quickly ascertain that Fatimah was a Caretaker. After talking further, and using a lot of right-brain language, I found out that Fatimah was a stay-at-home mom, a wife, and a daughter who checked on her parents multiple times a week. This confirmed the personality trait and therefore her motivation: to help others in need. Ultimately, I opened my recruitment pitch by taking the role of being in need of Fatimah’s help and that she was the only person who was in the position to help me. This approach, along with a promise of “assistance”, not money, for her and her family, resulted in a successful recruitment and a successful case outcome.

#2 A common way I apply Behavioral Programming is putting people in a good mood. Almost anyone will respond positively to an observant compliment so that is usually what I go for. This can be anything from mentioning the effort your boss has put into organization to complimenting a girl on her hair. A good example is this morning when my girlfriend was in a bad mood so I told her I was impressed by her dedication to education. The rest of the day went smoothly as a result and the same tactic can be used with nearly anyone with a similar outcome.

 

Behavioral Programming book

#3 I use the approaches in Behavioral Programming literally every single day. The four cornerstones of building rapport are essential to any successful relationship, no matter if we are talking about long, or short, term ones. Two examples come to mind, with Siding Goals being opposite for each. These happened to me.

In the first situation, I was in Cabo, having ridden my motorcycle down there. I had a couple of tequila’s at a restaurant about a block from my hotel and wanted to call it a night. Mexico has a law that requires you to have a helmet if you are on a bike. It apparently doesn’t specify that you have to be wearing it, but you have to have it on you. There were bikes everywhere and every one of them had helmets strapped to the back but no one was wearing one. Anyway, I got on my bike for the one block ride to my hotel, no helmet with me, and was immediately pulled over by the policia. I was informed of my infraction and told that I would have to go to the station and pay a fine. I was polite and friendly and told the officer that I was tired and I was sure he had better things to do than all of that paperwork (Common Enemy). I was happy to go with him, though, but, was there a way to pay the fine on site and avoid an inconvenience for us both? (Siding Goals) Then I apologized to him for breaking the law, asked him if he was a motorcycle enthusiast and mentioned how frustrating it must be to deal with clueless tourists all the time. I mentioned that I used to live in a tourist town and we talked about how annoying tourists could be. (Agreement). He had me follow him to a parking lot and we took care of the “fine” and I threw in an extra 100 pesos for my new “friend” as a “courtesy”. (Random Favor) At the end of the day, I rode away, still without a helmet, with very little drama.

Every feel like you are being interrogated in a conversation?

All of us have been in a conversation, probably many, where we felt the other person was conducting and interview or interrogation during a social and casual interaction.

IMG_7657

This makes you feel awkward, and you are never quite sure how to respond, as you cannot be certain of their intent.  Is it just their odd personality, their direct way of inquiring, or are they really digging for personal information?

The way that you respond to them from your words to your body language will determine how this interaction plays out; whether your actions shut down the conversation, or whether you build rapport and turn the conversation pleasant, productive and into a lasting acquaintance or friendship.

Discover how easy it is to take control over every conversation and make them beneficial.  Learn how to text and email and get the results and responses you desire.  Learn to determine and understand what the other person needs from you.  All this and more are covered in detail, and explained with real life conversations in each chapter.

Can you brag about your pistol shooting?

 

The 30-10 pistol training program.IMG_9898

This week during a qualification and tactical shoot, I had the opportunity to see just about every bad pistol shooting posture/habbit/training scar a shooter could have.  Every one of these shooters are 10+ years veteran shooters.  Not new students.

Training scars and bad habbits have been built and reinforced for years.  The ONLY way to break these bad habits is training!  Proper training.  Consistent training, as shooting is a parishable skill.

A solid foundation of the fundamentals is KEY!  This cannot be overstated.  You can never shoot at the level you desire without proper fundamental basics.  Get back to the basics.  Dry fire is the basics.  This program allows you to practice at home, or wherever you are in just minutes a day.  This WILL get you shooting pistol worthy of bragging at the range.  Only 10 min a day, and no ammo.

Most will not complete this training, as it is not “sexy”.  They will spend their money on ammo and guns, and range fees, and parts, but will not spend $47 on proper training.  And they will never shoot the way they want to.

This program will not only get you shooting, but will also keep you current, and proficient with your speed and accuracy.

This is not my program, I am not selling it.  I recommmend this training product because it works.  Period.

The link to purchase it and start shooting better today is HERE

This is how the Tier 1 Military Operators learned how, and this is how they keep their skill sets up.  Don’t think that there is a shortcut, or a sexier way to get it down, if there was, they would be doing it.  If shooting live ammo at the range would get you there, they would do that, as they have a MUCH larger budget than you do.

Want to shoot like they do, then do what they do.  And they do this!  Or you can look like and shoot like the pictures here taken this week at a Gov shooting range.

Spoorology; The science and art of tracking

SAR leo mil tracking patch kelly alwood

Spoorology is the science of spoor, commonly known as tracks. Spoor is the proper term used for tracks, like footprints, and other physical evidence of somethings presence.
Spoorology, or tracking is a science as well as an art. The physics behind spoorology is science, while the viewing and interpretation thereof can be an art. Much as learning to paint, or play and instrument, the art of tracking is somthing that is learned, over a long period of time.
spoor tracks tracking kelly alwood

 

The study of spoor can be divided into several different disciplines.  Forensic, meaning expert witness and crime scene recreation for law enforcement, SAR search and rescue, military combat tracking, animal tracking, human behavioral science, and many other forms.

The photo above is a Mounted SAR CERT team in Indiana.  They are commonly called out to “run down” or track missing persons of a non violent nature.  This can involve trackers on foot, vehicles, ATV’s, horses, and even tracking dogs.

My friends and I have been doing scientific study of Spoorology for many years now.  We have taught classes, published articles in magazines and journals, written books, Master Degree Thesis, and made videos all with the intent of spreading the knowledge of this science.  Some of us have developed and ran certification courses in tracking.  Some of us have been expert witnesses for the court in the United States.   With this new science, we can add to the worlds knowledge about human behavior, psychology, physics, and other disciplines.

Spoorology or tracking is also focused on animals by some.  These scientists use the animals spoor or tracks to research animal behavior, follow the animals, and check their health.  Some survival schools teach tracking, most of that is focused on animal spoor, and much of it is not in depth.  The classes are normally designed just to raise awareness.  To get people to start noticing and seeing spoor, following it, and at most, the very basic interpretations of the spoor.

What our research does is to actually go in depth, to a forensic level of the science, and bring forth information not otherwise possible to find by looking at other parts of the human or animals life.  Blood tests and dna cannot give you the same information as you get from the quarries spoor.

I have developed a system that will actually identify each specimin as an individual, simular to DNA or fingerprints.

Handgun penetration tests on cars

I did this test at a police range in Indiana.  We got a car, opened the doors, and shot through them.  On this test we used the FN 5.7×28 and the Glock 35 .40 calibers.

The first pictures here are of the 5.7 round.  The round was the American Eagle fmj.

car door shot Kelly Alwood IMG_4110

In both cases, and multiple angles shot, the rounds deflected slightly upwards.  The impact on the second door was higher than were the round struck the first door, even firing at a downward angle.  There is approximately a two foot gap between the doors.

These are the results for the .40 cal

This is the .40 cal shot through the trunk and went through the back seat, into the dash.  All the .40  rounds used were Gold Dot HP.

 

Trunk shoot Kelly Alwood

 

 

 

This last picture is the windshield.  We fired at a target in the drivers seat, and 12 feet in front of the front bumper, all through the back window.  All rounds went through the back window and the front windshield.  The rear window did not deflect rounds enough to miss the man size target in the drivers seat.  The windshield did not deflect the rounds enough to miss the human target 12 feet in front of the bumper.

Art of Escape class

Kellys class anti kidnappingThis class was the invention of Kelly Alwood.  A fresh new course designed specifically for disaster survival in the USA.

Kelly flew out to San Francisco in Dec 2013 and met with TAD gear (Tripple Aught Design apparel) and Rift Recon.  TAD was launching there new CORE training program at their new SF location.  Kelly spoke with Brett (TAD owner) and Eric of Rift Recon about designing a new fresh class for the first class at launch.  Kelly designed a new course.  An urban bug/ survival course.  Kelly provided the IP (class content, PPT’s etc) and agreed to teach the first 2 classes himself.  Kelly did travel to SF and personally teach both classes.  One in January and one in February.  Kelly trained the Rift Recon crew how to set up the class and run it.

After returning home Kelly was informed by formal letter that Rift Recon would be teaching the class without Kelly’s consent or involvement or compensation.  Rift Recon also stated that they would continue to use the Art of Escape name as well.  Rift Recon did acknowledge that the IP (actual class content) did belong to Kelly.  The letter from Rift Recon stated that Rift Recon would not use any of the original content that Kelly provided.  However, Rift Recon is using the same course description as before.  Rift Recon is also not telling students that Kelly is no longer teaching the class and that the class in completely different than what was advertised and what they signed up for.

This is a public notice.  Kelly Alwood is NOT teaching the Art of Escape class.  The content of the class is stolen IP, or the course description is completely false.  Rift Recon did NOT pay for the IP content of this course.  Rift Recon recorded with audio and video my entire course.  They had the audio transcribed.  Rift Recon is still advertising this course as it was when Kelly taught the class.  Rift Recon is using audio and video from the classes Kelly taught for advertising the class.

Neither Kelly Alwood or TAD has any affiliation with Rift Recon at this point.  Both Kelly and TAD had made Rift Recon aware that the quality of service Rift Recon provided students was sub standard.  Set up and execution on the part of Rift Recon was not up to Kelly Alwood or TAD Gear standards.  Rift Recon was given specific details of preparations and arrangements to be made for Kelly to teach the class.  Most of which were not even attempted to be made.  Kelly and TAD informed Rift Recon that we could not attach our names to the classes if they did not fulfill their obligations to the students.

Rift Recons responce was to claim the class as their own, and to contact friends and instructors of Kelly Alwood to go out and teach Kelly’s class in SF without Kelly’s permission.  They were refused.  No indication is given as to who is actually teaching this class now.  Students signing up dont know who the instructor is, or what is actually in the class.  Rift Recon has left everything the same on their website to fool students into thinking Kelly was still teaching his class.  Kelly Alwood is not teaching the class, and the class is NOT what is in the description, as Rift Recon has stated that the class is mine and they wont teach the same thing.

Kelly Alwood and Kevin Reeve still teach the Urban Escape and Evasion class all over the country.  Sign up for one of those and get the real deal.
