This morning I woke up at six in the morning and dragged myself to my networking group. Many other hypnotherapists say that this group was essential to building up their client base, so I push myself to go. I’m still not completely sold. The sun still lurked beneath the horizon and a passing winder rainstorm dropped heavy rain on the early morning commuters. Water confuses southern California drivers. “What is this stuff in the sky? Shouldn’t it be in the ocean?” they ponder.
Today demanded that I give a small presentation on an interesting subject. In hypnotherapy school I learned how to give three or four powerful presentations on the power of hypnosis and how I came to be a hypnotist. I attempted to give all of them at once and I don’t think it went so well. However, I think I delivered for a few moments that thing that people find irresistible—the real me. It’s hard to explain. He doesn’t like to come out much. He only seems to come out when I want something from the bottom of my heart. He’s kinda dangerous and wild and scary. He does things I’d never do like public speaking, writing love letters to strangers and standing up for himself. He’s crazy, but to betray him is to die. And I’m through with trying to figure out ways to dispose of myself quietly.
So I’m going to try to put myself out there more and see what happens. This means more journal updates in the future.
There is another podcast in the works. It just needs some editing. I get the slight feeling that more people listen to it than I realize. I don’t really have a service that measures downloads, but I’m not really sure if I could measure the success of the podcast by downloads since I think some people pick out favorites and listen to them repeatedly. At the last con there were a few people I didn’t know that came up to me just to meet me, which served as a humble reminder that people do listen to my podcast and that it would be wise to be more professional about it with regular updates.
