Self confidence is how we view our own capacity to do something. Low self confidence is when you view your abilities to achieve or create as being very low. Self confidence is similar, but not the same, as self esteem which relates to our view of us. Hypnotherapy techniques can be used to help us find out what has caused these beliefs and help us learn how to address them too.
Exactly why do we need self confidence?
Every area of our lives is impacted by confidence. It affects how we manage talking in public or even just how we talk to a friend, one to one. We need this ability to allow us to take chances we may otherwise disregard. We need to feel competent and able to grow in everyday life. If you suffer from low self confidence you may find that you are really shy, that you feel incredibly self aware and scared in social situations. You may also find yourself turning down job opportunities because you simply don’t think you are able to do the job, even though you know in reality that you can.
So why do people have self confidence issues?
It merely takes one traumatic event to knock someone’s self belief. Perhaps you had troubles as a child where perhaps friends or siblings made you feel unsure about your capabilities in social situations.
Sometimes we have become affected like this and don’t even know it. Now and then frequent knocks to our confidence can impact us deeply – perhaps a relationship breakup and a few failed dates have left you avoiding romantic opportunities you would have formerly taken.
The vast majority of time we simply don’t appreciate how much life can take its toll on our psychological well being and stop us from moving forward. Every now and then the reason is considerably less traumatic and simply a case of the person not identifying their skills and capabilities, or not knowing how to employ these skills and capacities effectively.
Some signs you could have low confidence are: persistent self doubt, avoidance of certain situations for fear of feeling uncomfortable, problems speaking with assurance, dismissing your own needs, not realising what they are, disregarding or steering clear of beneficial opportunities you would like to seize, but find that something is stopping you.
Can the situation be improved?
It certainly can. The initial step is finding out what triggered it to begin with. Because hypnotherapy solutions address the mind as a whole, the issue can be discovered, regardless of how deep or complicated it is.
There are several options for those beset by low confidence. The most important thing to do is to reach out and get help. It is devastating to feel this way, to learn that it is only your own thought processes stopping you from getting on with your life. Simply discovering this can be amazingly empowering. When it is only your mind that is the obstacle, you have a chance to turn that around and move forward, turning into the person you want to be and should have always been.
