A Linguistical Dance: Repetition in Threes

“Rhythm is something you either have or don’t have, and when you have it, you have it all over.” – Elvis Presley

Hi Persuader,

It starts in the womb with the thump of the mother’s heartbeat. Then come lullabies, rocking chairs, and bouncing the baby for relaxation.

Rhythms lull us. Rhythms soothe.

Just as a lullaby does with a baby, there are ways to use persuasion to soothe, calm, and lull the affluent. It’s an incredibly powerful and effective way to influence others. Here’s how to do it…

The goal of Repetition in Threes is to establish a rhythm so that we can embed suggestions.

When you get this down you’ll really begin to see results. And when you continue using persuasion, before you know it everything you’ve ever wanted will just fall right into your lap. It’s amazing how well this works and what a snowball effect it has on your life and your career.

Symbolically, the number three has extraordinary power in our society – the Trinity. Most every major religion on the planet talks about three things: God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit.

If anyone who has ever been exposed to anything religious, (and that’s pretty much 100% of the population on the face of our planet today), has heard something from the Christian religion that deals with the Trinity, even if they couldn’t express it in those words, they’ve at least heard of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

That’s another reason Repetition in Three works; it is an immediate reference to religion, a subconscious reference to religion. And if the people you were persuading were highly religious, repeating in three could have a dramatic impact on them.

Even in humanist psychology, they talk about the id, the ego, and the super ego (the conscious mind, the sub conscious mind, and the super conscious mind).

There’s the father, the mother, and the child. These are all iterations of the number three in our society.

Here’s an example of using Repetition in Threes:

Today, there are a few things that I believe so strongly that I want to emphasize so profoundly, that I believe in with all my heart, that I’m going to do my best to try to take the position of a father who’s giving this information to his beloved son in such a way that he can infuse his heart with the spirit of the message such that it’s really understood through and through. And there is a resulting change, such that today, by the time we’ve gone through this process together, you will experience this information in a whole new way.

Not only will you be excited about it, not only will you feel fantastic about it, not only will you have a sense of understanding that you’ve never had before, but you’ll begin to experience how it will work in your life.

Now I want you to understand that for me, this is a mission. It’s a mission that I live my life for every day. See, my dad taught me something very important when I was young. He said, ‘Kenrick, if you love what you do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life.’

And he also taught me that if you don’t like what you do, then every day will be a struggle and a fight. So I realized early on that I had to love it and it’s my mission to help people understand these principles just like I do so that they can have a change of life, then can completely accept into their heart a new way of understanding, a new way of dealing with this subject matter and that’s my goal for us today as we talk.

Now, what have I just done there? Let’s analyze it…

First, I’ve used all kinds of religious symbolism, repeating in threes. I used the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit symbolism to infuse you with the spirit.

Secondly, (and this is one of the main reasons Repetition in Threes works), I repeated my message. Repetition helps install anything. It’s simply a convenient way of remembering to repeat the things that you most want to install in people.

And thirdly, spoken in a soothing cadence with emphasis on the proper words, Repetition in Threes utilizes the lullaby rhythm that helps put our affluent prospects in a very receptive mode so that persuasion is inevitable.

Repetition in Threes is just one way to install things into your affluent prospect’s mind. When you use this in conjunction with other persuasion strategies, you will have exceptional results.

Until Next Time,

Kenrick E. Cleveland

Repetions of three seem to be everywhere persuasion is present. Now that Kenrick has explained it, I’ll bet we all begin to see many examples of it everywhere.

After hearing Kenrick talk, reading about it in the article, and thinking about the sermons I’ve attended, it does remind me of the lullaby afect it has on my mind.

A suggestion for this blog. Everytime when you post something new ..please give us more real life examples, so we can understand better, and maybe practice.

Hi Michael,

My purpose in writing this blog is to share some of my thoughts on the vast area of persuasion that I work with. It’s not really the place to get into a lot of depth.

However, it’s great that you are interested in improving your skill. I try to give some ideas of how you can do that in my articles. And if you would really like to take it to the next level, let me encourage you to check out http://www.persuasionfactor.com. This is a very inexpensive yet super high powered program.

If it’s appropriate for you, you can also check out my Elite Coaching program:

Or just keep reading the blog and working to implement the strategies. I’m having a blast getting them out to you.

WOW! this one is very exciting and good for some real thought. Originally a music major, the repetition in music is so prevalent. Listen to the themes of even Bach, Beethoven and Debussy and you will hear repetition. It may be repeated in different cords and sequences but it is there. Thanks for more giving me some real food for thought. All your info is making such a difference and thank you.
