5 Great Reasons To Cuss to your Hearts Content

I just got an email (I’m replacing the person’s name with a ‘dummy name‘ [Joe Black] to keep integrity and protect privacy) that explained that Joe was offended because I cussed in an email, and that he unsubscribed from all my lists. Let me show you (edited for privacy only) the message:

——Start Message——–

Hey Dave ,

Just thought I would let you know that I have unsubscribed from all your lists today. I wish you all the best and continued success but decided to remove myself due to the fact you used some really unprofessional language in this latest email blast.

You are like the 3rd person’s lists who I’ve removed myself from within the last two months who are all rather successful but for whatever reason have chosen to use vulgar language in email blasts. Maybe its some new technique not sure but what I do know is it sure doesn’t work for me.

All the best

Sincerely
Joe Black

——End Message——-

Now, I don’t really cuss that often – only in very specific times and places to illustrate certain points – but whenever I do it, someone always gets offended, and the rest of the people out there get pumped.  I responded to Joe, and I wanted to copy and paste the message, to explain the reasons why sometimes I cuss, and why it’s occasionally useful for me, although it may not be for you.  (message not edited at all except for changing the name to ‘Joe Black’):

——Start Response——–

Joe Black,

Thanks for the heads up.

I’m going to be honest – just because you were on my list for some sort of reason – without being offensive in the slightest.

(aside from maybe a few positive examples of cussing)

No, cussing is not a new technique – however, it is more effective at what it’s for than any other kind of language.

Let me explain (as a courtesy – really just so you know ‘why’ I’m doing it)

First of all, I am not, nor is most of the new generation of the world – offended by cussing. I don’t find it appalling – I don’t find it offensive, I find no ‘biblical’ basis for not doing it and no reason to avoid it (also, it’s fun and appealing to lots of people) – and I also find it an effective way to communicate with a majority of the population for several reasons – let me explain them, so you know that in taking offense – you are in a very small minority – who knows, maybe you would have made me a million dollars had I not offended you, but look at all of the wonderful reasons to cuss my brains out:

1. Cussing is by far the most emotionally charged way of communicating verbally. There are no other words in the english language – other than cuss words – that can get people quite as charged up with just saying one thing – this makes it useful for creating positive and negative emotional responses on a massive scale. For example – ‘gosh dangit’ doesn’t create the same emotionally wired response as ‘shit’ – does it? In communication with masses – creating emotional charge is important.

2. Cussing is (by virtue of the previous reason) the best way to ‘break state’ through written words. There are other techniques – like highlighting, underlining, verbs and adverbs – bold words, changing fonts that create a response and can grab attention – but nothing like the good ‘ol cussing. Why do you think movies do it so much? Ever noticed that most popular movies have liberal amounts of cussing? There’s a reason for that – people like it and it captures their attention because of the emotional charge.

3. When people take offense to something – their brain wakes up and they pay attention – albeit offended – but offended attention is better than no attention in communicating an important message – like, for example, the fact that if we don’t do something about the Federal Reserve – 99% of the world is screwed – and that, my friend is more important than disagreements on verbage.

4. The emotional charge created by the cussing – such as you experienced – anchors information in the subconscious mind and makes it very difficult for people to forget the information. For example – I bet you’ll not forget that email, even though it pissed you off. Personally, although I respect your model of the world, I think it’s not very useful to get offended by something that 99% of the world does on a daily basis. (MOST people cuss from time to time when they’re relaxed – it’s not the minority)

5. (the biggest, most important reason to cuss my brains out): People are sick of the ‘common’ success mythology – wear a suit and tie, act and be professional – be proper all the time, don’t put your elbows on the table – eat with your fork, dangit!
When I dress however I want to – not to impress or to offend, but because I want to only – it relates with the MAJORITY of people, who inside feel that all that ‘success nonsense’ is bull shit. And to be frank, it is. So by offending a few (like yourself – and you’re a great guy I’m sure) I win the loyalty of the many. I become ‘the guy’ that showed them that they can be themselves and make money too – by FAR the most important aspect of my message. You don’t need to be professional – dress in a suit, have a degree, follow all the rules, and act like you’re in a 90 year old religion to have success – you can do it and be YOU, with all of your power and God given greatness.

So yes, I’ll cuss my brains out – selectively and scientifically, just like Tony Robbins does in his seminars, and in offending unfortunate individuals, I’ll win more friends and influence more – and better help the world.

Personally, I think that getting offended by that is not very useful to you, even if it’s tied to a religious belief, and I also think it makes you appear judgemental to 99% of the world by expressing it, which is pointless, too.

I’m not offended by your offense – my Dad would be offended, too – but then again, my Dad loves me anyways regardless of our disagreements on phonetics, which is why I respect him so much, even though we differ.

It’s useful to point out, however, that currently I’m more influential than my Dad ever has been, and make more money – even after 40 years of practicing law, graduating from Stanford and Cornell, and working hard and smart his entire life.
I guess cussing pays off, bigtime :)

Love you man, sorry to see you go over something trivial.

-David Wood

——–End Message———

Let me clarify on a few points hereand no, I don’t really think anyone should be a ‘cuss-o-holic‘ like my good friend Shannon was growing up – I do think, however, that you shouldn’t get offended by cussing, even if it’s part of a religion you’re a part of to not cuss. Because by doing so (by getting offended at everyone), you appear judgemental to 99% of the world, who has no problem cussing infrequently and selectively, like I do.

There’s nothing worse for winning people to your way of thinking than being judgmental of something so common and trivial – YES, it’s ok and noble for YOU to choose not to do it - but getting offended by the occasional ‘shit’ when someone stubs there toe will only make you appear like a jerk to all of us who have let the mouth slip when in pain.

Let me give you an example of what I mean – I grew up in a hard core Mormon family. I still love the Mormon church, and believe it most of the time, but gosh dang it, I was a square peg in a round hole all growing up – no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t keep all the rules, it was like I was born deficient of the ability to be perfect. (Again, the Mormon church rocks and people are very cool)

One time, I was living in Utah, and I was taking a style of Kung Fu known as ‘Wing Chun Kung Fu’ from a place called the WCKFC (Wing Chun Kung Fu Council) – VERY cool place, with lots of good Mormons and rebels alike, right in the heart of Orem and Provo (the headquarters of the famous BYU – which 4 of my siblings have now graduated from).

There was a guy who was a good pal of mine, great guy and had an incredible heartwith an uncanny foul mouth. Of course – going to high school in the 90′s, I developed the ‘modern immunity’ that all people in my generation have to offense from cussing.

One day after a Kung Fu camp (3 days in the mountains hitting thingslike I said - Kung Fu attracts a lot of ‘rebels’ with ADHD type personalities, who have problems with social norms like ‘no cussing‘) we were in a KFC (before I was ‘mostly vegetarian’ like I am now [like I said - not perfect really at anything]) and my buddy was talking away – jibbering and jabbering about something he was doing, and cussing every few sentences or so. It was fairly quiet, not loud and rude, and a personal conversation.

I noticed a guy getting angrier and angrier across the room, (he would have to have a sound magnifier to hear what we were saying – or rudely ignoring his company to get mad purposefully at our conversation). He was so far away, that I literally thought he was getting mad at his family – because I couldn’t imagine someone being offended. He eventually got up, stormed across the room, and yelled at us in public, talking about how cussing interferes with the spirit of God, and we were disturbing his meal.

Now, I’m not perfect, haven’t memorized the Bible, (and this is in NO WAY reflective of all of the awesome, wonderful Mormons or Christians I know who prefer not to cuss and are great friends, like my Dad and older brother Will) – but I would bet to say that isn’t a great technique to win people over.

After that experience, (I thought it was funny), but my friend got so offended (he grew up poor, being beaten, and cussing was part of survival as a kid on the streets – it was VERY tightly wound in his personality) that he never talked about Mormons again, and he eventually moved away.

Nowhe probably shouldn’t have gotten offended, and maybe he ‘shouldn’t’ have been cussing, but I’ll tell you who really messed up bigtime there – it was the guy who yelled at him for no purpose whatsoever, causing a spiral effect that ruined this guy’s perception of a truly loving, great people. (Seriously, Mormons are one of the most loving organized groups of people in the world and usually treat people with an incredible respect I’ve almost seen nowhere else)

Now – is ‘Joe Black‘ in the same camp as that guy in the restaurant? No way, he subscribed to my list for a reason, and the cussing offended him a bit and he unsubscribed - no big deal, right?

Not a big deal to me - because I’m looking to relate MORE to the people who connect with me, and have always felt out of place, but with me, they feel comfortable and at home – which is the majority of the world that feels out of place with all of the bull shit society inflicts on usbut that attitude (judging people who do it and getting offended by something so common to so many people) will keep him from relating to most modern people.

(Sorry folks – if you want to win the masses – understanding is the first key – even if you choose not to participate in their ‘sinning’).  Againif you don’t swear – or don’t drink, or ‘would never’ make a mistake – no big deal. Heck, if you’re perfect, all the better! The world must be evolving.

Just keep in mind – that cussing, like lots of behaviors, is only ‘rude’ because of old social norms that in reality don’t exist in our current society, and are only in your mind – language has changed and adapted, just like culture.

So if you want to cuss here and there, and like it – I’m not offended. It doesn’t have anything to do with your success or failure – it doesn’t have anything to do with your personal morality. I still appreciate you, and think you can make it.
If you were always ‘on the outside’ like square peg in a round hole growing up, there’s no one who understands better than me, and you can still be a great influence over human thought and over the success and prosperity of others.

I ALWAYS felt out of place in society – until I said ‘screw it, I’m just going to be me’ and now I know why, it’s because ‘social norms‘ are in fact not normal at all to our biology, and the ‘system’ perpetrated by the mass media, the government, schools, and corporations is both DESIGNED and structured to make you frustrated and always feel a bit ‘off’.

You don’t have to wear a suit and tie to be successful (although you can, if you want) and you don’t have to be a woman or a man.  (Heck – if you’re somehow ‘both’ you’re still cool in my book, and would love to have you make a million dollars a month).

It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, Chinese or American – old or young – Christian or Heathen.  We are all alike with the laws of influence and money. “The rain falls on the just and the un-just alike” isn’t that how it goes?

Amway owes a majority of it’s success in America to the system it built that tapped in to the current social culture – which at the time of it’s creation and presence was suit wearing, Bible thumping tradition.  If you go to a big Amway meeting – it feels like church (they even pray at the meetings in my old organization).

Well, there’s nothing wrong with that – except when you expect that everyone can ‘copy it’ and be successful (even those of us who feel like crap when we do).  So in Amway, I wandered around in a suit and tie trying to connect with people in a way that really, just wasn’t me.

The result?  A story that ended in a modern MLM disaster – listen to my audio on my ‘about me’ page up top for the full grueling details.  You’ll listen, and really – that was my fault, for trying to do something I wouldn’t be good at in a million years of practice.

However – expressing those same training concepts, and the same ideas – but in a way that is uniquely and only ME – resonates with people so easily that I’ve recruited over 2,250 people in 18 months online (my first 18 months) not even owning any of the companies or systems I’ve used to do it.

So is cussing good? Is it righteous? I don’t know, all I know is, people like me not being fake and saying bull shit all the time just to pat them on the back, and somehow – it’s worked for me.

Cussing isn’t responsible for, and doesn’t harm my success – but being me definitely does.

Just the two cents of a Maverick who found his place.

-David Wood

P.S.  I know I gave a bad example of a Mormon – so let me give you a great example of an incredible friend, Paul Hutchings (blog here).  Paul isn’t just a hard worker, he’s got great ethics, produces results – and never judges anyone based on the past.  Paul latched on to what I taught a year ago, and has personally enrolled over 91 people in 3 months (average 1 a day) by applying the concepts.  I can say that my influence (evil or not) has helped Paul become a great leader in the online Network Marketing space.  He never picked up my cussing, but it doesn’t matter to him, because he wants to learn from people that get results – you rock, Paul!  If anyone wants a great Mormon to join – join Paul Hutchings!

I agree with you 100% on this! I've felt out of place as well, people thought I was weird cause I wasn't like them. I didn't go around talking and spreading rumors. To me it's okay to cuss, I try not to do it all the time cause it does offend people but its just part of being me if they don't like it ohwell lol.

It's also a great filter. Leaders can't be judgmental. If they are, they won't be great leaders. So if you swear, and someone gets offended and hates you for it, then you can move on knowing that they aren't going to be a leader if they continue their judgmental behavior.

Hey Dave. How are you doing brother? :-) Thanks for the blog post. This is quite a sensitive topic to some people but hey what the hell? Controversy sells doesn't it? ;-) Thinking in the long run, it will affect a small group of people but looking at the big picture, as I said above, it can also show a sense of passion or belief in what you are doing. I also agree with the points that you made within the post because it isn't all negative, negative, negative if you know what I mean. Thanks again and I hope you are having a BLOODY SMASHING weekend! ;-)

Sounds to me like "Joe" was looking for a reason to quit on himself. When you cussed, that was a good enough excuse for him. Too bad. Most people cuss sometimes. Get over it.

You are a bad ass dude, David....love the article. Now, I'm a guy that doesn't cuss that much, unless I "stub my toe" shit...If more people would stop judging others, because they are not like them and live with an open heart, I'm 100% sure everyone would be a lot happier.

HAHA. I love this! Do people not understand that the whole POINT of this industry is to not have to do what people tell us to do? Freedom from a J.O.B = Financial Freedom = No Boss = Nobody telling us how to talk and how not to talk or if we need to be politically correct. That is the greatest email reply ever :) Rock on!

Hans Schoff
Hans Schoff

David, interesting post. Personally, I get so sick and tired of all this "politcally correct" stuff. So many stupid rules and regulations about what you should or should not do... for what? Because we were TOLD to or told NOT to? Not enough people think for themselves anymore. Common sense has gone completely out the window. I'm not someone who cusses publicly yet if someone else were to, would I be offended? No. In fact, as you point out, it would get my attention more than not; it interrupts their pattern... bottom line is it works! It reminds me of the saying that there's no such thing as bad publicity. Publicity is publicity. Granted, you attract who you are, and therefore you wouldn't want to do things just to get publicity; but something as harmless as using a highly-charged word here or there to drive a point home seems to work like gang busters! Great post Dave! (and I'm sure this 'controversial post' you wrote will get more attention for the same reasons - no SHIT, eh?! :)

We are real people right? Don't real people cuss? or should we try to impress and fake it? I got out of my Financial Office so that I could LIVE MY LIFE Without people telling what to do all day long :-) So long as you aren't outta hand....cuss when appropriate!!! Pura Vida~

Mike Willett

OK, David, I stand corrected. Shit sells better than poop. After your reply, I gave it some thought, and found myself agreeing with your view, but I have to say, it is the act of screwing, not the words, regardless of the description. :) I will admit that you have certainly caused your readers to focus on something that could be used very effectively, or, could cause some, though probably a small amount, to turn away. It would be interesting to see some kind of statistics on this subject, but then, we might just get f---ed. Keep at it, man, conversation and different point of views are important to us all, especially if we can discuss our views without anger or getting pissed. Have a great day, my friend.

Ron Deering
Ron Deering

I agree with your thoughts, but I will say that I have met and known some incredibly successful people some of which will sparse some colorful words and some that would never do that.......point being that the cuss or not to cuss has absolutely nothing to do with whether people will listen to you or follow you..that's coming from a 60 year old who been around with Ziglar, Maxwell, Hopkins and some of the great in person....it's about the person... you can't say the wrong thing to the right person and you can't say the right thing to the wrong person..

Roger D. Blackwell

You know I truly don't know anyone who swears more than I do. Even when my wife gets upset with me for it I tell her "it's just for emphasis Dear". There is nothing funnier than a good swearing tirade whether it's in a book, a movie or a comedian on stage. But I gotta tell you man, even for a guy who swears with the best of 'em (Hey I've been complimented on my swearing) even I cringe a little bit in this type of, or any business forum. I'm certainly not offended by it. Maybe this guy just "found" his excuse to quit. Who knows? If I was voting in a poll I'd have to choose to not use it. It just doesn't feel right to me. Other than that, rock on man!

Matt Stefanik
Matt Stefanik

I just told my wife David Wood said it was cool if I cussed more often. I think she agrees because she said a few cuss words of her own.

David Emil Lombard

Right-on. I think in the restaurant guy's case, his anger is WAY WAY WAY more detrimental to maintaining a God like state : ) He was being tested to keep his anger in check by his God, and he failed. Oh Well. I will say, when I am in peak state, in alignment with what I know are my highest values (which isn't always as I am obviously not perfect either), I find myself not cussing. When underneath, if I am not really happy with my results (attachment & aversion---control), or happy with who I am being (not fulfilling my potential), I find myself cussing more. Strategic cussing from passion (the opposite of anger) like Tony does on stage serves its purpose, in my opinion, for the exact reason you pointed out. Great friggin' blog man :) Dave

Mike Willett
Mike Willett

David, I respect you and your thoughts, but I would have to lovingly disagree with your premise. It would appear to me that this really, really bothered you, by simply noticing how much space you devoted to the subject. I'm a long way from perfect, but I do notice that with many, "cussing" seems to lower their opinion of you and your ideas. If you are in business, why take the risk. Respecting other opinions on words is just smart, and, I don't agree that swearing does much to impress very many. That said, certainly shit seems to have more impact that poop, but do we really need to make that subject impactful? Love you anyway, but quit trying to justify poorly chosen language. Part of improving ourselves is improving our communication, and using cuss words just puts up another barrier to have to overcome. Why cause yourself more work?

Daniel
Daniel

OK. So nobody's going to like me for what I have to say, but in "Joe Black's" defense, I think I know what article you are talking about because I actually closed the article when I got to the f bomb. I don't think you are a bad person, I just didn't appreciate it, and think it shows more respect to choose other words. There are many ways to creatively express things to capture your audience's attention. I don't think cussing helps build a business, and I do think it will detract from it. I still think you have good tips to offer, and may very well be in the position to take advantage of them someday. Also, I completely agree with you about the Federal Reserve, and I would love to talk with you more about Wing Chun. I actually went to the same school as you. I learned from Sifu John (my cousin) before Carlos taught there. Anyway, I hope I haven't offended anyone. Just my 2 cents.

Greg Stadler
Greg Stadler

Dave, wow, I guess I got my "10 pages a day" in on that post! lol Good shit man! Needless to say, I swear like a drunken sailor. I'm happy to learn that I'm actually influencing people! I gave up on "oh gosh" when I was 3! lmfao Are you ready Paul?

Paul Hutchings
Paul Hutchings

Oh man.. You're freaking (Mormon term for the F-bomb) hilarious! I better weigh in here as the "Mormon" referred to in the PS line (thanks for the compliment Dave - I truly do appreciate that). I think it's high time we all stop putting each other in boxes and judging one another - just like you said. Yesterday I wrote an article about change & somebody practically yelled at me in my comment box for not mentioning "Jesus". One thing's for sure about beliefs. They often change & many of them are false. We need to be careful about forcing other people to live in our paradigm of the world. You hit the nail on the head by pointing out the fact that 1 sure way NOT to win people over to your way of thinking is to box em' up, judge em & condemn em. I appreciate you and the incredible value you provide to the market place even though you can occasionally be a vulgar bastie... ha ha.. lol...

George Fourie
George Fourie

I say: Cuss you all! Ha, just kidding! :) Great points on differentiating yourself in the marketplace by staying true to yourself. I think most people that don't like it or approve of it will still let it slide anyway.

Stephanie Deneke

Being that most of my friends and downline are Mormon I've had a few tell me that I am a bit over the top for them (but they love me anyway and pray for me and you and that other "Wood" that cusses on his videos and blog) I agree with what you say, mostly because I take Tony Robbins to bed with me very night, but also because sometimes other words just aren't going to cut it when it comes to expressing yourself. I grew up with a Catholic step-mom and "gosh darnit" wasn't even allowed to be spoken because of the intent behind it to replace "God dammit". So I was totally self-conscious about what I was saying for years and got to the point where I was totally introverted and wouldn't say a word in public. The best advice I've ever gotten about Network marketing is to be real, say what you want when you want and the people that like you will connect with you. Being different from your real self is only going to attract more phonies. Being narrow on what you will accept will narrow who will connect with you. I noticed Joe Black said that you aren't the only successful marketer he's seen cussing. If more than one successful person is doing something, it would probably pay to figure out why.

I think so too :) It's funny to see all of the different responses here - some are offended, a lot think it's funny, and then a few - they see the real meaning of the post, which has nothing to do with cussing, but on having an open heart. Good man Charles :) -dave

I am highly successful. Cuss words are part of my daily lingo. I grew up around merchant marines, long shoremen and railroad engineers who lived in our boarding house. I used to have to go to the bar at dinner time to gather them all up (started that at age 5). If someone isn't tolerant to the uniquness of some individuals the F**k em! LOL!

David Wood

:) It's cool man - again, social perceptions driven by how we were raised - but that there, is precisely why it can be effective - is because people have 'shock and awe' towards it - does that make sense?

I am not offended... and if it works for him great. That being said, wordsmithing is a choice; there are other ways to be emotionally charged in a positive manner.

David Wood
David Wood

Yes, agreed - keep in mind a couple of things though: 1. Your energetic disconnection with Cussing is a phenomenon of programming, associations, and perceptions of language - not the words or meanings themselves. 2. Not everyone has the same response - for someone who grew up with different social engineering - they might feel unbelievably spiritual while cussing - that's a phenomenon on language association, not biology or spirituality. Spot on though! -dave

David Wood
David Wood

Mike, Lol - great response buddy - but here's a general concept that always remains true: 1. You can't relate with everyone, and if you try - you connect with no one. 2. Whenever you have influence, you always offend people, there's no case of this not being true. 3. You're wrong, simply and plainly, about cussing driving away a bigger crowd. As evidenced by movies and media - MORE views, sales, and business is done from what relates to the largest sub-section of the population. I dedicated this much space to it, not because of being offended, but because it creates blog traffic (look at the tweets and shares on this one - significantly higher than my average post - another proof of relate-ability) Blog traffic = opt ins = more sales, from any subject that can be syndicated - this included. (Yet another example of how cussing can create more sales) PLUS - there's a dramatically more important point in this post than you would think of immediately - the judgemental issue will STOP people from connecting with really anyone but a tiny, iddy biddy niche - and that's the issue here, not cussing - cussing is just a great way to show how full of shit being judgemental is! love you man, Dave

David Wood
David Wood

Lol. No worries man, you don't have to like cussing at all :) A LOT of people (especially religious folks) prefer not to do it. However, it's pretty easy to prove cussing indeed does help business. Here are some things that it's proven to do: 1. Movies get remembered and re-watched more (when was the last bestselling movie with zero cussing?) 2. TV shows get watched more 3. Comedians get listened to more 4. Dan Kennedy and Tony Robbins (both) cuss quite often in sales letters and seminars - two of the most knowledgable people in the world in marketing :) However, a lot of 'non cussers' make a lot of money too - so no big deal if you don't like it! -dave

OK man, just to reply to your post about best selling movies. See the list at the link below of the top 50 best-selling movies in history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_films Most of them have very little cussing, if any, maybe 2 or 3 use the f word once. It shows that the majority of best selling shows that are most widely accepted, are very family friendly. It's not that I'm offended thinking you are a bad person. I don't think you are a bad person. I think you are a good person helping a lot of people with financial success. It's that for me, it feels like somebody just slapped me when I read the f word. Again, it's a matter of respect. To each their own. We may just have to agree to disagree on this one. Thanks, Daniel
