8 Rules Of Sparrow School That You Can Use In Your Everyday Life

Secret agent training: It's not just for secret agents anymore!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet government trained an elite squad of agents called "Sparrows."

It's true! The Sparrows were an actual badass KGB spy unit that used their, umm, "sex appeal" to extract information from enemies of the state.

The Sparrows attended KGB training facilities, where they learned the art of seduction and manipulation.

But Sparrow School also teaches some psychological tricks that you can totally use in your everyday life to get what you want!

Get it, gurl.

Rule #1: Figure out what your target really wants, then make them think you're the one who can give it to them.

Your boss might say they want a "hard worker," but maybe what they really want is someone who will make them look good to their superiors. Be that solution!

Rule #2: A healthy body is a healthy mind.

Exercise is essential to clear thinking, and clear thinking is essential to controlling your own destiny.

Rule #3: No risk = no reward.

Put yourself out there. Be brave. Be bold.

Rule #4: Patience is your most valuable weapon.

It takes a while to persuade someone to act in your benefit. Luckily, most people are super impatient these days. Make calculated decisions and don't expect immediate results. It's a marathon, not a sprint!

Rule #5: Do your research.

You can try to charm your way into dating someone, but you can gain a serious advantage with just a little bit of social media stalking — er...research. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, DO NOT ACCIDENTALLY LIKE THAT BEACH PHOTO FROM 2 YEARS AGO.

Rule #6: Prepare yourself for all potential consequences.

Be aware of all the potential consequences and prepare yourself for a worst-case scenario. If it seems like too much to handle, come up with an alternate plan.

Rule #7: Bravery will get you everywhere.

You won't get anywhere by sitting on the sidelines, hoping for luck to go your way, and then getting sad when it doesn't and watching Youtube videos of puppies sliding down the stairs on their bellies to make yourself feel better. If you want something, figure out what you can do to make it a reality.


You deserve to have whatever you want, and you are fully capable of getting it. YOU. CAN. DO. IT.
