How to Win the Battle for Your Mind

“We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, and our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” — Edward Bernays

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.

We are all witnesses and unwanted participants in a global conspiracy.

The playbook is a well executed three-part strategy.

A simple strategy that works with devastating effectiveness.

And it goes by the name…Problem. Reaction. Solution.

Here’s how it works…

1. Create The Problem. “COVID-19”

2. Encourage The Reaction. “Something must be done to solve this”

3. Offer The Solution. “Vaccinate”

This particular strategy can be summed up by the Latin expression…”Ordo Ab Chao”.

It’s meaning?

Order Out of Chaos.

Create the chaos, magnify the pain (fear)…and then, offer up a solution that restores order. YOUR ORDER!

Chaos. School Closings. Businesses Shuttered. Unemployment. Foreclosures. Suicide. The shit hitting the fan in all directions.

(Stay with me, this is going somewhere).

Perhaps it’s a coincidence, but it’s definitely worth mentioning…

“Ordo Ab Chao” just so happens to be the motto for the Freemasons.

And the book, Order Out of Chaos outlines this as the Freemason go-to strategy for bringing about change and control on a mass scale.


How else are we currently seeing this Order Out of Chaos ( Problem. Reaction. Solution.) scenario play out?

Border Crisis. Russian Conflicts. Inflation. Fill in the blank________?

Is the so-called Great Reset the solution to everything that ails us?

I’m just asking!


Let’s look at this honestly, objectively and without emotion. Just the facts.

The ONLY way to control the masses is through a psyop…mind control.

There’s no possible way that a small number of people can physically control and manipulate the masses…that’s why mind control, censorship, fake news, lying and other forms of psychological warfare are being used upon us.

Physical control of the global population simply will not work.

But physical control is not necessary when you can manipulate and mentally control the way people think and feel to the point where “they decide” to do what you want them to do anyway and demand that you introduce laws and restrictions that you want to introduce.

It’s a proven technique, an old adage that if you want someone to do something, get them to believe it is their idea.

The truth is…they want your mind because when they have it, they have you just where they want you. It’s the purest form of Stockholm Syndrome.

The answer lies in waking up to what’s really taking place, controlling your mind…and thinking for yourself without fear, ridicule or condemnation.


I define mind control as…the conscious regulation and mastery of the self, by the self, over the self.

It is the capacity to command, control and conquer your mind…to develop an impenetrable mental fortress which overrides unwanted thought, feeling or impulse in order to achieve one’s goals.

Exercising dominance and control over your mind means that you have the type of mindset and spirit that is incapable of being overcome, subdued, or vanquished.

In short, it means that you are mentally as tough as nails…that you are unconquerable.

In the absence of mind control…without the ongoing enforcement of will, the most complete collection of talents, the best education money can buy and the most honorable intentions in the world are wholly worthless.


In the same way that a physical fortress is built to protect its citizens from enemy attack…a mental fortress exists to protect you…your self-esteem, focus, time, wealth, health, productivity and your reputation.

And, when it comes to success, the attraction of wealth, accelerating your win rate and unleashing your greatness…nothing else really matters.

Why? Because, if you don’t protect your mind, if you don’t build a fortified wall to protect your productivity…your results will ALWAYS be compromised.

I’m a proponent of playing a strong, relentless offense and doing so requires the enforcement of a few defensive countermeasures.

A mental fortress is the mother of all countermeasures.


Hostile forces are constantly attacking — with an array of weaponry including self-limiting thoughts, pity, fear, stress, all forms of media, along with the constant disruptions of email, phone calls, text and social messaging, and more.

And it’s only to get worse.

Precisely because people have not diligently built a fortress of beliefs to protect them against their deadly influence…they find their hopes, dreams, ideas, careers, finances and even their marriages in serious disrepair and in some cases, complete ruin.

When it comes to this attack against your mind and productivity, however, you don’t have to accept defeat…but you do have to accept the idea that building a fortress of beliefs is a critical part of the solution.

So how do you do it…what’s the brick and mortar needed to build a strong, powerful, healthy, impenetrable mental fortress?

The four criteria for building, measuring and nurturing your fortress of beliefs are the following.

Your beliefs must…

1. Create Positive, Consistent and Sustainable Results.

To determine the strength and utilitarian value of your beliefs, simply look at your results as they serve as judge, jury and executioner of your performance.

The purpose of your beliefs is to drive results, not to deflate them. Your results tell you and the world everything you need to know about the quality of your beliefs.

2. Bring You Peace of Mind.

Low self-esteem, anxiety, insomnia, chaos, depression, guilt and shame are the result of a corrupted belief system.

If these beliefs dominate your thinking, then you have in effect built a mental prison and condemned yourself to living a small, fear-filled life…not a fortified belief system that allows your spirit to soar.

There is zero upside to self-limiting, negative beliefs…ONLY clean, pure and positive beliefs help you to fast track your goals and live the bold, ambitious and beautiful life you’ve always imagined.

3. Make You Feel Safe and Secure.

A mental fortress just like a physical fortress is meant to protect you and make you feel safe.

If your mind contains elements of fear, doubt and worry…if your belief system says that lying, cheating and dishonoring commitments is acceptable behavior…I assure you that your belief system has been seriously damaged.

4. Unleash Your Full Potential

It’s actually pretty simple. Your beliefs either empower you to rise to meet the mental demands and physical rigors of big challenging goals or they undermine your ability to do so.

Precisely because victory or failure begins in the mind is reason enough as to why you need to build a strong, healthy fortress of beliefs.

Let’s face it…

The most important element in your strategy to win the battle for your mind and productivity is your own psychology.

Therefore, seriously consider the ramifications of this next question…

“What’s the point of having a belief system if your thoughts and beliefs do not embed feelings of high self-esteem and supreme self-confidence…if they do not embolden you to dare mighty things…if they do not empower you to make your mark on the world?”

You’re not here to merely exist, to conform to the weak will of the majority nor to settle for mediocrity.

You were fearfully, wonderfully and uniquely made to make a difference.

You’re here to break rules, break records and to create big breakthrough performances.

To do so requires that you break through any self-imposed limitations and resistance force that is holding you back from unleashing your greatness.

Therefore, allow me to do the heavy lifting by providing you with a fortress of beliefs worth adopting.

If they don’t inspire you to question and liquidate any counterproductive attitudes, approaches, superstitions, or beliefs that are holding you back from unleashing your greatness…I’m not sure what will.


No matter how successful you or your organization has been in the past…that you have far more to offer the world than what you’re currently displaying.


You have the ability to multiply your performance, dramatically exceed your best expectations, and achieve goals on a scale and pace that in the past seemed impossible.


You have no legal or moral obligation or, for that matter, logical reason to settle for small, marginal…incremental growth.


You were fearfully, wonderfully and uniquely made to make a difference…and that destiny is calling right here, right now.


In order for you to create a performance explosion…you need to give up a few things to include false assumptions about how fast you can change your life and self-limiting beliefs that undermine progress and the comfort zone that holds you back from unleashing your greatness.

I know you’re capable of great things and I’m calling it out.

Is it okay for me to do that?

Let us stare together into the eyes of the truth:

Greatness requires a disciplined mind…a strong, healthy psychological immune system…it demands that you become mentally as tough as nails.

Your mood, your attitude and your future will be greatly impacted by your willingness and ability to build a mental fortress.

In all my years competing against and coaching high performers, there’s one thing I know with certainty…

There lies an indomitable quality within the human spirit that cannot be destroyed…a face deep within the human personality that is so strong that it’s impregnable to all assaults.

Find that place in your mind, nurture it…and victory is yours.
