Well, an exception to the Pareto Principle appears to be in ossible play here at the Psychology of Longevity .

Of the dozen or so most frequent questions of all are answered, as many as several hundred times each. the Psychology of Longevity is not centralized quite intentionally. It is a tree to eat and drink from, not a book to be read laterally. Any page of the Psychology of Longevity is beneficially packed with useful methods of people who do it best; every techinque is a direct reference to the repeat techniques of repeat champions. Because a unique question is uncommon, it sometimes piques untapped curiosities. Here's one question that's infrequently asked.

"Great and thank you, but what about people who already get it, those who see the underlying principles of PowerGems and are using them. Are there PowerGems for advanced students?"

SHORT ANSWER: Yes, Napoleon Hill phrased it profoundly in saying that every adversity contains equal and opposite opportunity.

First, be careful about using the word 'but' - it's sloppy at best for all of us. By definition, the word does not modify what came before it as much as it directly negates whatever comes before it. It's like that neat trick of placing a chair against a wall and bending at a ninety degree angle to place your head against the wall. Now, pick up the chair and stand up. If you're a female, no problem. If you're a male, you have no hope of picking that chair up and then standing straight up. It's the only question MisterShortcut has never successfully solved, and one that seems to have left even Ms. Savant in a bit of a pickle: her one try at answering impressed many of us even as it held no water, in a manner of speaking. To say that there is a physical difference between men and women is fine and dandy. That in no way proves it's not a different reason until you can rationally explain to the satisfaction of the dumbest and smartest people exactly why females can pick up the chair against a wall without cheating and men cannot. That doesn't prevent us from learning from it. Quite the contrary, because a firm foundation of the Psychology of Longevity is resolution, which can translate into meaning the acquisition of benefit from every experience, ala every cloud has a silver lining. Long-term idiots are those who nod and agree that there is wisdom and then repeat their previous behavior. The bright person is one who recognizes excellence in another, recognizes a lesson learned in pain or disappointment. Every cloud has a silver lining. It means that every event, however challenging it may be, has equal and opposite opportunity. If you're smarter than Isaac Newton's explanations of the laws of physics, change nothing; you're in great shape. That would make you rarer than someone who wakes up and can put both socks on at the same time while brushing your teeth and jogging as you juggle four bowling bowls, a midget, and the collected works of Shakespeare. For the rest of us who have the habit of putting our socks on one at a time, a PowerGem, a superlative and universal shortcut, is borne of, is found in every pattern that is repeatable. Does it really matter how it works as long as it really DOES work?

As to the question that ignited a dozen others:

Yes, if you understand that the instant, the mini-micro-second that you choose the flexibility, the resolution, the focus on benefits of at least your version and personal interpretation of it, you become an advanced student. Fully eighty percent of all humans are just too dumb or intransigent by training and/or inclination to be open to newer better ways of doing virtually anything. Your job, your entrance fee into the Psychology of Longevity is to be in that top twenty percent: someone who is open to fixing what's wrong, someone who's looking for the better way, and even more focused, more advanced, someone who is convinced in advance that there IS an answer, and that any answer now being used is either perfect or imperfect. For those solutions that are imperfect, an elimination of that natural predisposition towards resisting change is critical. Eliminating that resistance, so aptly referred to as stick-in-the-mud, is a powerful tool, one that improves your immune system both profoundly and repeatedly. When you're sure in advance that there is a solution, a good and reasonable and satisfactory solution, your whole outlook becomes more proficient and less wasteful. Those minutes of your life that you're doing nothing constructive with? Make sure they're all voluntarily minutes of doing nothing. To put it another way, it's better to be doing nothing because you want to than because it just worked out that way. One is a recreational break from your forward motion. The other is drifting without direction, the lot of most people, not the lot of you or people like you. Stay hungry, stay focused. Those two features of human volition have more power than anything on or near earth. So a more accurate yes contains a push towards advanced interpretration of each PowerGem. Funny thing about all great bits of wisdom you ever encounter. In every single case, there is more than one meaning, more than one layer, more than one flavor and more than one angle. Remember, any chord can provide many different sounds, far mor than just the three or four or even five or six notes that comprise the chord. Advanced interpretation of PowerGems simply means peeling layers. It's easy when you combine them with other useful shortcuts. For example, we know that when we take in a new idea, we have a choice of nodding and agreeing or we can "tuck it away for future reference," or we can do nothing at all... or we can do what the brightest people repeatedly do, and are observed to do. They rephrase it into their own words. This one trick doubles the function of your memory instantly. When you take in any new bit of information, being impressed by it distracts us from assimilating it. The standard use of short-term memory and long-term memory is modified by the Psychology of Longevity to

Now, to fit into the sweet religion of logic, the answer must be long-proven by those who repeatedly succeeded at world-class repeatedly, free of our predispositions towards one view or the other; and must be universally applicable. It's that simple. Now you most likely already realize that people who repeatedly screw up, especially when the screwup is one thing that they repeat, are showing us what not to do, so we are learning from people who do not succeed. Learning what not to do is a definite shortcut because anything that does not work repeatedly from one cause that is repeated becomes a step that we are not going to use. When we see drunken people on motorcycles crash or otherwise get into mayhem approximately eighty percent of the time then we have a definite clear lesson that there is no likely way to win a motocross race after imbibing thirty-one shots of high-quality alcohol. The question is, how do we squeeze out positive value from a negative lesson?

In the case of the motocross racer, understanding that there is a mathematical and direct connection between clarity of mind and ability to win a tight race gives you a faster route into mastery and expertise, because you will stop wasting four and five or even ten percent of your efforts on mediocre attention span. The more attention paid, the better and faster and safer you ride, so the negative experience of the heavily inebriated rider gives more of a lesson than just how dumb it is to drive drunk, yadda yadda. You get powerful, useful information from the situation by looking for it. When your brain is in resolution mode the funniest things happen, and you're assured of quicker better answers in your mind as well as around you. It's about as inexplicable as why a girl or woman can stand up straight holding the chair while men cannot. Our job is not to reason why if we're really not in the more advanced stages of analysis, cogitation, and expurgatory regurgitation. If you simply want to get more companionship for marriage consideration, or make more sales or in any way accomplish something that involves other people, it surely helps to know the cool tricks without having to study the subject for years and years to fully grasp it. What the Psychology of Longevity seeks to infuse within you is as simple as that: learning how to do amazing things without bothering to figure out how it works until after you use it successfully. Does that make sense to you? Instant results.

Without wishing to offer any endorsement of sexism, there is a finer side of life that's open to us when we enjoy quality companionship with people of the opposite sex. Opposites attract, don't they? So let's look at some instant shortcuts that do work for approximately one hundred percent of the people who use them, even fat, ugly, stupid people. If you fit into one or more of those three categories, no problem, you're way ahead of those who are ugly AND fat AND stupid, because they also enjoy success at the same one hundred percent rate. As always, there is one condition, one catch, one fly that screw up your money-back guarantee. A hundred, child.

One hundred times. Any PowerGem you use one hundred times is a gem of life you will master forever. In a matter of days or minutes you are certain to get far more of what you want. These secrets are so vastly beyond your current frame of mind that they're right in front of you, like big fat diamonds that don't come at the expense of blood and suffering as all African diamonds do, Russian as well. In the next sixty seconds, even if you thought you already knew this you are promised with great vigor of discourse to possess at least one of the most magical, fantastically effective shortcuts to getting, mm, let's say fifty dates in the next one hundred days of your life. Is that enough? Oh, too many? Fine. YOU pick a number. How many dates do you want in the next 100 days? No one asked how many different girls or guys you wanted to date; it could be the same one. How many dates would you like in the next one hundred days? Use any PowerGem, including those right here, one hundred times in the next one hundred days and you are absolutely, positively, throw me in a vat of acid if this is in any way an exaggeration or other distortion of perfect truth, perfect power, in your hands and heart and head at this precise second in time -- . Just hush up and open your mind to someone who speaks from a lifetime of intensely happy interactions with many of the Architect's finer works of art.

You have your choice of perhaps two, maybe three thousand excellent questions that require a yes or yes answer. Might be several thousands more than that, but let's keep it simple and at a level we can relate to.

For example, if you ask a girl if she wants to go out with you or not, you're asking a yes or yes question. As long as you live, each and every time you are seeking to persuade someone to say yes to your request, whatever the request is, ask only questions that involve choices, seeking yes or yes responses. This one trick is so neat and saves so much time and it saves effort and it saves massive amounts of time ice-breaking, because instead of finding out if someone wants to enter a conversation with you, or if they want to get to know you better, you initiate control of the conversation by leaping as smoothly as possible right past all of that so you can get to the more fun parts of getting to know each other without the time-wasters. This is no way eliminates, or even substantially reduces
