“You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.” - Samuel Ullman
Confidence is a positive state of mind. When we feel confident, we accept ourselves and believe in our abilities. When we don't feel confident, we can become stressed, anxious, unfulfilled and ultimately unhappy.
Most of us from a tender age have a fairly high degree of self-confidence. We haven’t yet started to judge ourselves as smart or dumb, handsome or homely. We haven’t yet built up notions of possible versus impossible, safe versus risky.
Even more importantly, we haven’t had time to absorb the judgments, fears, and limitations of the people and culture surrounding us!
Unfortunately for a lot of us, that natural, innocent self-confidence starts to erode pretty quickly. And by the time we hit our teenage years, the majority of us have bought into a new notion: you can only feel self-confident by earning it.
What exactly does that mean…Well as an example, kids who perform well in sports, that begin to show a real athletic promise or skill. Usually start to develop a strong self-confidence in their sporting abilities. Chances are they continue practising and playing this sport, long into adulthood, perhaps even professionally.
Unlike the natural self-confidence we were born with, this new self-confidence requires proof!
Hypnosis to Boost Self-Confidence
The problem with this approach is, the confidence and continued motivation is largely dependent on the level of success you have for that endeavour. It by no means, relates to any other aspect of confidence required in your life. Worse still, if for whatever reason you can’t perform at the level you previously did, your confidence shatters!
Which is why, the only confidence that is true and lasting, is the confidence in who we are, not in what we do. That’s so incredibly important, that you should read that statement over again!
So how exactly do we achieve this kind of confidence…With the power of Self-Hypnosis - Your subconscious mind still holds the beliefs and “truths” about that natural self-confidence you had as a child! Your subconscious mind, doesn’t need external facts or proofs to validate that confidence.
Have you ever noticed those rare people who seem to exude self-confidence no matter what? A guy (like Walt Disney or Henry Ford) who fails at several businesses but never seems to take it personally? The woman who, by fashion industry standards would never make the cut, yet she walks into a room like she’s the hottest thing going? That talent show kid who sings off-key but with such enthusiasm that he’s the hit of the show?
That’s real self-confidence! And that confidence – or the lack of it -- is based in our subconscious minds. The beliefs we hold within our subconscious minds effect everything from what we observe (or don’t observe) to our emotional reactions to our very physiology.
How can hypnotherapy for confidence help you?
Having confidence can make a huge difference in many areas of our lives. Two key areas that benefit are your career and relationships.
Career - Lacking confidence at work can stop you from voicing your opinion and trying new things. This can hinder your progression and stunt your development. Building confidence at work can help you reach your full potential and ensure your voice is heard.
Relationships - When you have low self-confidence it can affect your relationships with friends, family and partners. It may hold you back from meeting people or cause you to isolate yourself socially. Improving this can help you feel more comfortable in social environments.
