In order to achieve this level of mastery, you need to understand the different states the mind can be in.
Someone once said that we live on the same planet, but not in the same world. The reality is that each one of us has his own world based on this perceptions, values, beliefs, desires and emotions.
Once you realize this, you will have a clearer idea on how to mind control. You can focus on using the different states of the mind to make people do what you want. Now I will show you how to use past and present states.
All you have to do is show to the person that he was in a desired state in the past. Now he is in an undesirable state. Then you can readily offer a solution to take him to a desired state again.
You should definitely be specific when describing the different states. Make sure you have some information about the person to make valid statements. This is what those who know how to mind control do.
Here is an example that will be useful to you. You can say, “A few months back you were a happy person in a romantic relationship. Now you are all by yourself and all your future plans have collapsed.”
This may seem cruel, but you have to keep in mind that this is just the first part of this persuasion technique. Then you have to pace and lead in order to get the person to the desired state at least in his mind.
Using the above example, you can say, “You are now a wiser person. You have a bunch of friends who are there for you. Now you can go on and find your true love.” Notice how the completion of the pattern is positive.
