Leo, how do you speak so articulately for hours?

23 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have long conversations of 2-4 hours with my friends on a regular basis, but in those situations you don't have to be very structured, you can take breaks while the other person is talking and you'll always have the other person to go off of. But to speak...

  1. By yourself,
  2. With no feedback,
  3. Focusing on the same topic,
  4. Making it engaging
  5. For multiple hours
  6. With little to no breaks
  7. On the regular?

How does one do that? Seems like an incredibly powerful skill to have.

If you know the material and you train yourself its not so hard.

And I use outlines in some cases.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

Why do you shoot videos in one shot instead of composing them of edited peaces?

If you want to develop that skill, talk to yourself all the time. I've done this for 12 years and I can tell you it really helps develop the connections in your mind and articulate them. It takes practice but just follow whatever chain of thought you're mind takes you on. Have some "central point" you're trying to approach, but know that you probably won't get there... it's the contemplation/speaking itself that's the fun part. Alan Watts and Leonard Bernstein were also amazing at giving extemporary lectures.

Training and Armodafinil. Armoda makes the brain impetuously talk and explain things incessantly. Mindfulness is needed when using Moda. 

I use to think Leo was on another level with his energy and capability to talk so fluently for such long periods, but nope... Armodafinil.

Note. It takes training, knowledge, discernment and mindfulness to use Armodafinil like a pro. Armoda transforms your brain from a shitty beat down car to a ferrari with the accelerator stuck down. But if you don't know how to drive that beast, you'll end up going around in circles for hours and then crash. Hence Mania is a noted side effect.

honestly piece of cake if the topic is your passion :x

1. It's YOUR passion, doesn't matter who's with you or not.

2. It's YOUR passion, public reception is secondary.

3. It's YOUR passion, why would you talk about anything else?

4. It's YOUR passion, its engaging by default!

5. It's YOUR passion, why the fuck would you stop engaging with it after just a couple hours?

6. It's YOUR passion, what better thing would you even have to do during breaks? lol

7. It's YOUR passion, of course you come back to it time and time again :D

Because I feel it is more truthful and authentic.

To me a real speaker should be able to speak without edits.

Real life rarely gives you the luxury of editing what comes out of your mouth, so I figure why not just learn to speak fluently?

You also would not believe how much time it saves in the editing room. In the amount of time a typical YTber spends editing his 15 minute video, I can record a profound 2 hour talk.

99% of my videos are recorded sober.

If I was recording every video on Modafinil, they would be off the charts.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

In a positive or negative sense?

Why don't you do it then? Health?

I don't want to hinge my speaking on an external crutch.

When I saw Leo talking for 30 to 60 minutes without editing his video, I knew that this is someone worth listening to ?

Thank you Leo.

You need passion, and that's pretty much it.


To balance beauty and complexity so perfectly is a divine mystery.

@Leo Gura Damnn okay. I always have thought I've noticed when you're on Armoda. I would personally love to see your shooting setup, how many screens you use to read from etc. Not expecting such, a magician not revealing his tricks and all that ;) 

Ta for your time and energy Leo

@Alex bAlex This is what initially kept me listening back when I first found the channel and I thought Leo was a crazy one. Intuitievly I knew through his cognitive capabilities and trained speaking abilities, that even if he was off his head, talking about infinity... that there was so much to learn regardless.

Fun fact. I found the channel through two vids initially. 

* How to be a strategic mafuckaa

*Ahahaha How to make a young lady put out a house fire

Thank you for the clickbait

@SoothedByRain I bet you found the answer pretty quick :)) 

 

Also at that time, Leo had nothing to sell and that was another factor that made me subscribe to his content - pure knowledge without a ton of advertising (there was only one at the beginning of the vid)  and "Get my course to find more" message.
