Here’s an extremely interesting piece of information and recommendation that a long time student sent me:
“I don’t know if you’ve heard of Cus D’Amato – the genius and legendary trainer of Mike Tyson – but now I FULLY grasped his Philosophy. Thanks to your Energy training and last Will course.
I can now apply his Philosophy of FEAR through your Energy and Will trainings/methods. This is a major breakthrough that will transform my life once this quarantine is over.
Everything he’s been saying fits into your Energy and Will training.
In case you’ve never heard of Cus D’Amato – I’m sure you’d be interested in learning about him since he was actually an unrecognized MASTER of Personal Magnetism. He was seen by Mike Tyson doing Classical Gaze Experiments. He claimed that he could influence the course of a fight in his favor through his Will. He was truly a Master Mind.
Here’s a excerpt from his biography by Mike Tyson about him doing a Classical Gaze Experiment:
“When Cus had his gym on 14th Street, he would take his binoculars and look out the window and pick out someone at random who was walking on the sidewalk below. Then he’d give them what he called “The Look.” And with his powers of concentration he would be able to make that guy stop, look around, cross the street, whatever he wanted them to do. He was practicing telepathy. I actually saw him do this shit.”
I highly recommend his biography “Iron Ambition”, the man was fascinating.”
I wasn’t aware of Cus D’Amato as I don’t follow boxing, but examples of magnetic individuals are everywhere. Boxing is no exception… quite the opposite. My guess is that you’ll find plenty of examples in there since you need a strong Will to succeed.
After having watched and observed Cus D’Amato a bit more and recognizing exactly what this student was mentioning, I decided to share this recommendation with you as well.
It’s particularly interesting that he uses the very same technique that all students of Magnetic Gaze Foundations have learned. Watching Mike Tyson talk about a Magnetic Gaze technique surely puts things into perspective.
And, without knowing anything about this man, I will go on a limb and say that the motivations for doing this exercise were different for him than for most students.
Everyone begins the training wanting to develop their Will and magnetism, and the exercises are a way to get there and find this power inside of you.
That’s perfectly normal and that’s also what happened to me. I had no power, no Will, and I developed it through these kind of exercises.
This kind of naturally magnetic individual like Cus D’Amato already have this power inside. They are magnetic and they have a strong Will… and when this happens, you seek for opportunities to use it everywhere! You have this impulse that pushes you to use it, since this very same impulse reinforces it.
I assume he wasn’t taught that particular Magnetic Gaze exercise. He did it because it was one way of using and REINFORCING his power.
The impulse was pushing you to do it.
We all have “emotional addictions” to certain thoughts, behaviors and actions that we have on a daily basis. These are behaviors that reinforce what you are feeling inside. The most common of this is mindless internet browsing or binge watching netflix or scrolling social media.
When this “emotional addiction” turns to something productive, then you’ll find opportunities to reinforce what you are feeling, effortlessly increasing your power. For Cus D’Amato it was opportunities to use his magnetism and Will anywhere, anytime, hence the need for these type of exercises. I doubt the Classical Gaze Experiments were the only ones.
