Self-Confidence: Craig

I set up an appointment with Laura to work on getting the motivation and desire to make the phone calls that I needed to make to be successful in my business. I'd been dealing with this problem for about six months. Every time that I thought about making a business call I felt apprehensive and nervous and didn't want to pick up the phone. I would try to force myself to make the calls but it wasn't very effective because I would usually just go do something else. From time to time, I would make some calls, but I often wouldn't do it at all. Instead, I ended up playing video games, checking my email, getting on the internet, and basically do anything that I could to avoid picking up the phone.

My fear was preventing me from making new contacts in my business and keeping me from earning any money. I was always worried about paying rent and covering my basic needs instead of being able to think about anything else. I couldn't go out and do things, buy the things that I wanted, and participate in the activities that I wanted to take part in. I sometimes felt out of control because I was so irritated with myself that I couldn't do what I was supposed to do.

I heard about A New Day Hypnosis on Craigslist. I didn't have any qualms about using hypnosis because I'd had a psychology professor in college who was really into hypnosis and had done some class demonstrations, so I had an idea of what it would be like. I started to notice changes a couple of days after I met with Laura. The first thing that I noticed was that I felt more relaxed and able to perform this part of my job. There wasn't the barrier there anymore and it was easy for me to pick up the phone. The anxiety was gone and the more practice that I got, the more natural it felt to make the calls without feeling nervous.

Now, I'm able to do it with more confidence. Originally, I was making anywhere from 0-5, maybe 10 calls if I was having a good day. Now I make between 15 and 20 calls every day and I'm able to do the things that I want to do.

The best thing about using hypnosis for me is the change in my attitude, I feel calm and relaxed and have the confidence that comes along with that. I would definitely recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to overcome an anxiety or a phobia because it's helped me a lot.
