Toastmasters For Confidence
Recently I’ve started going to Toastmasters again. Toastmasters is a great place and there is a couple of really good things that you learn at Toastmasters.
The first one is obvious it’s you learn to become a better public speaker. In order to become a better public speaker you have to kind of get over your fear of public speaking. That’s kind of the main reason most people go to Toastmasters is to get over their fear of public speaking.
Most people recognize that if you can get over the biggest social fear that we have, which is public speaking, there’s a lot of other things that will seem a lot easier by comparison.
The second benefit to going to Toastmasters as you meet all kinds of really interesting people. You’re gonna meet a bunch of people that are all doing things specifically to expand their comfort zone.
One of the guys I met recently Toastmasters is a magician. He does stage magic. He does sleight-of-hand stage magic, and I guess if you’re a stage magician, one of the skills you need us to have a very interesting and very engaging magicians patter.
So that when you are doing your tricks you’re telling these interesting stories and if you make sure your stories are interesting enough and charismatic and often are filled up with interesting enough characters the audience will focus on the story and they won’t notice the magic that’s going on behind the scenes.
So when magicians do their magic they’re much more impressive if their magic is accompanied by very interesting stories. This guy works a lot of different types of venues.
He does high schools, he does colleges, he does nightclubs sometimes and he does a lot of corporate events. A lot of these corporate events they have these kind of weekend retreats. When they have these weekend retreats they usually hire a whole team of these type of entertainers.
Weekend Party Crew
So this guy works with a lot of other similar entertainers. They’re not all magicians, but they’re all kind of similar, up on stage do some kind of a strange thing to entertain the audience.
One of the ladies he works with is a hypnotist and she has a very strange way of doing hypnosis. What she’lll do is to ask one person to come up on stage. Whenever you go to see a stage hypnotist you’re kind of expecting the hypnotist to ask a bunch of people to come up on stage and sit there.
While the hypnotist will talk to them and tell them that you’re going to forget your name, and your gonna start to cluck like a chicken and stuff like that.
Sleight Of Hypnosis
But she only gets one person to come up on stage and the only reason she does that is not to actually hypnotize that one person is because that one person is going be very very nervous as everybody is staring at them.
The one person that comes up on stage is almost always volunteered by their friends or colleagues, especially with a corporate event over the weekend. So the person up on stage is usually very very nervous and everyone in the audience is very very glad that they are not the one up on stage.
This is actually a trick that the hypnotist does to get the people in the audience to kind of reduce their critical factor because it’s her way of doing what she calls a sleight-of-hypnosis.
She creates a situation where the audience thinks she’s hypnotizing the person up on stage but in reality she’s hypnotizing the entire audience and she does that by telling these really really really strange stories.
Our Alien DNA Origins
Her favorite is the one about the aliens and how they populated the galaxy. She says that once upon a time these humanoids first came to life on this one planet.
They realized they needed to spread out other planets but the first time they did this they made a critical mistake. The people they put on all the other planets, they put them on their with their full memory of being aliens with alien technology.
What the state was after a couple of thousand years all of these other planets were populated by people and all the people on these planets realized that they weren’t from this planet.
This caused them to all kind of want to go back to the home planet which kind of led to all these kind of interplanetary battles and wars and there was eventually too many people to go back to the home planet.
It caused a lot of problems and it eventually almost wiped out the entire race of humanoids. Second time they did they did it a lot more cleverly.
Second Alien DNA Experiment
When they did it the second time they put people on a very special way. The second time they did that, they augmented our DNA slightly.
They augmented our DNA so we wouldn’t be here starting with our full alien potential. We would be here with our DNA only capable of one-day evolving into our whole alien potential. This would give us all that deep desire to kind of find out who we are.
Alien DNA Activation
To find out where we came from. To find out what the reason is and so when you have DNA set so our purpose is not clear. Our reason for being here is not clear, then it translates into our minds, into our subconscious minds, is a deep massive desire to find out who you are.
To find out what you’re capable of. To find out what you are supposed to do in this life. This is kind of like having a DNA that is not fully activated. It’s kind of our purpose in life to fully activate our DNA.
Our purpose in life to do that through how we live and how we reach our full potential. While it is possible to activate your DNA it’s not nearly as quick and easy as a lot of people say.
It takes a long time to do that. It takes a long time to fully increase your DNA’s potential. You have to do that by living life as fully as you can you have to do that by finding who you are and striving to increase your true potential.
That takes an entire lifetime.
Will The Crowd Remember This?
When she finishes this convoluted story she looks at the audience and the audience is absolutely zonked out. The audience is completely zoned out because she uses a lot of hypnotic technology built into these stories that nobody can notice.
The person on stage is still kind of nervous and been kind of resistance of the person on stages kind of just pretending to go along with it but her real target, the audience, is absolutely completely just zonked out.
It takes them a full hour to kind of get back to normal state of mind.
The Magician’s Speech
This guy always gives the best speeches at Toastmasters. Most people want to go to Toastmasters to improve their assertiveness. They go there to be able to speak out more at work. To give better presentations.
This guy, since he’s an entertainer, since he gives performances for living, he’s always looking for different ways to improve his ability to entertain the audience.
He’s always giving these fantastic speeches about these fantastic things and is a really really good inspiration. Essentially that’s one of the great reasons that you eventually find out about Toastmasters.
Get Over Public Speaking Fear
Once you get over your fear of public speaking, when you kind of start to practice giving various speeches in various techniques and in various different reasons for giving speeches you start to get used to it.
You’ll start to soak up that behavior from all the other people at Toastmasters. They experts tell us that if we want to be successful we need to hang out with successful people. One of the basic core skills of any kind of success is being able to step outside of your comfort zone.
Unconsciously Learn Positive Behaviors
If you go to Toastmasters you’ll be hanging out with people who purposely step outside of your comfort. That’s the skill you can soak up. That’s the second benefit from going to Toastmasters.
To hang around people that are purposely doing things to expand your comfort zone and when you do that you start to see a lot more opportunities than you may be noticing now.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
