Boost Confidence and Grow.
Do you want to Boost Confidence in some aspect of your life? Whether it’s for work or to improve your sports performance or for a personal reason doesn’t matter. Hypnosis can help improve performance.
People who are optimistic, tend to have a generalised sense of confidence about their future, accompanied by their broad expectancy that their future outcomes, are likely to be positive ones.
On the other hand, low confidence is usually accompanied by a pessimistic or negative outlook. If you don’t believe you can do something, then that can seriously get in the way of you achieving it.
It is said that the more confidence you have in your ability to do something, the more secure you think about your ability to do that thing, which creates a positive effect which leads to improved performance.
There is something referred to as Orr’s Law, what the thinker thinks, the prover prooves. This means we can get the future we think about. So if we think we are going to do something badly, then the brain has a way of making that happen for us.
Insecurity affects us all in some form or another, consciously or subconsciously.
I’ve applied this thinking to help me personally in respect to my own ski performance. I used to lack the confidence when skiing and would never want to ski any of the black run. They are graded in order of difficulty across much of Europe, green, blue, red then black.
I didn’t believe I could ever ever ski a black run. I had convinced myself that as I had only started skiing in my late thirties, that it was too late for me to improve beyond the comforts of a red run.
I believed that the black runs were for the younger generations. Sometimes I would accidentally end up on a black run, (or be persuaded to try one by my husband). But then my thinking would go completely crazy. I couldn’t stop myself from thinking about how I was going to fall. I would even say it, I’m going to fall. Panic, and then the fear would set in.
Adrenaline levels and stress levels would surge. My heart rate increased and my breathing would become erratic and shallow. Believe you me, I did fall. Sometimes spectacularly.
So I decided to take steps to change. I prepared myself mentally to think differently, and used breathing exercises to help keep me calm and regulate my breathing. I can now ski black runs. Sometimes top to bottom without stopping.
What’s next… off piste for me maybe?
One of the things that many people don’t really think about is the difference between self confidence and self esteem.
They think they are the same thing, but there’s a difference.
I had a client who was confident in her ability to past her exams but felt crushed when she only scored 95% in an exam. She felt disappointed and that she had let herself and others down, which was evident to me, that she had high confidence in her ability but low self esteem.
Overcoming this self-doubt starts with honestly assessing your strengths (and any weaknesses) and then start work on improving and correcting them.
Your music teacher was right, practice does make perfect. The best way to improve confidence in a given area is to invest energy and time to work on what you want to correct.
Boost Confidence in different areas of your life
I work with clients to help them boost confidence in a whole range of areas, especially in respect to their confidence in the workplace. I help coach clients who have recently been promoted to a new position, and need something to help boost their confidence in the workplace. Or those who feel stuck in a rut, or trapped and want to get out of their rut, or escape from their trap.
I encourage and help motivate my clients to stretch themselves. This sometimes means that you will need to be prepared to take yourself out of your comfort zone.
By using Advanced Hypnosis & Advanced New Code NLP. It’s remarkable how you can start thinking differently in just a few sessions.
