Summary

How do you defy your destiny when others start from an advantage? How can we break through the upper limit of our maximum performance? How can we face life when excellence is not enough? The answer is not in your head, but in your heart: listening to what we want, not just to what we think. Our head analyses, but our heart holds onto our deepest desires, and this is what really makes us act. Although talent is necessary, as it allows us to overcome major challenges, once we have been able to rise above the failures, it is the heart. Xesco Espar is clear that in order to reach excellence you must train for it, but to go further than this, you have to transform yourself: face each problem as a challenge, a way to grow, a test. 

Using examples from his experience as a professional handball coach, and his particular way of understanding the world, Espar shows us how life harshly punishes those who simply talk, pretend or put on a front. Whereas those who take action, who transform themselves and grow, are showered with rewards… in other words, those who play with their hearts.

    In the spirit of Jocko Willink's Extreme Ownership and Chris Voss' Never Split the Difference comes the most empowering sales tool yet: a practical guide on how to use proven spy techniques to bolster your business strategies.  
    Even if you’ve never seen a James Bond film or never met a real-life CIA agent, you should know that spies are geniuses at surviving covertly. Their ability to communicate in code is practically written into their DNA. And while it’s true that spies receive some of the best survival training in the world, there’s another, more critical skill a spy must have to survive… business savvy.  
    In Agent of Influence, bestselling author Jason Hanson, a former CIA special agent and founder of Spy Escape School, reveals how anyone can use spy tactics for increased success, from learning how to strategically plan your day to mastering the steps you’ll need to embrace challenges and set achievable, personal goals. He teaches you how to develop a winning sales personality and target the perfect business opportunity using the SADR cycle—”spotting,” “assessing,” “developing,” and “recruiting.” With this invaluable and unique handbook, you will become a more productive, confidant professional or entrepreneur. 
    Discover how to use proven spy techniques to bolster your business strategies—from self-advocation to selling to interviewing—and ultimately make more money. In our evolving age of entrepreneurships, corporate careers, and self-run businesses, Jason’s message will appeal to those looking for a competitive leg up, and who entrust the insider secrets of spy practice to take them there.

    From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond. 
      
    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.

    (BONUS! Includes Audio recordings of the actual routines in the book! All 700 of them!) Download Link found inside!It will give added insights on the overall game strategy to put back routines that were missed in standard teachings from  routine based systems, that only produced "Social Robots".The mistake of the old teachings is they had you memorize random routines, although were useful? Were simply out of context in the flow of conversations from the "sets" or targets. If you were naturally talking about Cars, you had to transition into talking about Cs and U smiles and gay cats? That's retarded!True routine game does not need you to force segue routines, just so you can use them! You have to roll with the punches (devastating blows at that) and flow naturally! The feeling should be as effortless as if you were doing Natural game or engaged in normal conversations with real people.This book has enough canned materials or templates that can be customized and reworded (highly encouraged) to fit exactly how you converse, and your own unique game styles and personality.As with the problem of those doing routines? They only had a miniscule collection of routines memorized.  They were obscure topics, out of the way in typical conversations, and not easy to implement in conversations. This is because the Seducer has no way to INTERNALIZE and have ready access to the materials! This is also why the audio recordings are included to serve as your Line Feeder, anytime, anywhere, even if you're doing another task! So you can practice even while sleeping and really absorb the materials through different modes of internalizations.This book series' purpose is not just to give you routines, but for you to ABSORB and actually have ready memory access to the materials whenever  you need them in the field! Over 700 hundred of them!

    * How to use your clever wit to think fast on your feet during tough situation, to handle it properly for the best outcome.
     
    * Plus, custom practical "how-to" strategies, techniques, applications and exercises to improve your wittiness.
