Do you want to know the secrets to self-confidence? I think there is no secret to self-confidence. On the internet, you can find a lot of information about how to increase self-confidence. What I will share here are some ways how to improve your self-confidence on a daily basis.
Most people have times in their life when they lose confidence. At a certain time, I was losing confidence in myself. And when you are at this point, it is sometimes hard to get it back. When you are in such a state in your life, then it’s helpful that you have a tool that helps you to get back on track. Or when you have a coach who shows you how to gain your confidence.
Here are some techniques that will help you:
- Trance / Hypnosis
- Journaling your successes
Meditation is a good way to improve your self-esteem. And it’s something you can do everywhere and for free. Just find a quiet place, get comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
When you first start with it, then you may find it difficult to sit still and focus on your breath. That’s normal. Your thoughts will wander. Just refocus on your breath as soon as you recognize it.
The key to success with meditation is that you do int regularly. Write it down in your diary and reserve a specific time each day. For me, it works best when I do it in the morning. Get out of the bed, drink a glass of water to hydrate your body and start to meditate for 15 minutes.
When you don’t like just to be calm, you can also use guided meditation programs. One that I use often is from Esther and Jerry Hicks Getting Into The Vortex: Guided Meditations CD and User Guide.
Affirmations also work well over time. You simply say positive statements aloud over and over again to yourself. It works best when you do it in front of a mirror and looks in your eyes.
Here are some recommendations for affirmations:
- I love and accept myself unconditionally
- I approve of myself and feel great about myself
- I radiate love and respect and in return, I get love and respect
- I am a well loved and well-respected person
With affirmation is it the same as with mediation. You have to do it regularly to get the best effect.
3. Trance / Hypnosis
In trance and hypnosis, you can influence your subconscious mind in a very powerful way. Your subconscious mind is open for every recommendation you make in this state. Your subconscious mind believes what you are telling them. When you believe it, you behave the way you believe it. In other words, when you believe that you are a confident person, than you are one.
To get into trance or hypnosis, you can do it with a coach or you can do it with a guided program that already have the powerful affirmations you need to be implemented. One program I used and can recommend you is from Paul McKenna I Can Make You Confident: The Power to Go for Anything You Want!.
4. Journaling your Successes
A simple but not less powerful way is to journal your successes. Buy a notebook and write every evening in the notebook 3 to 5 things you have done well during the day. They can be very little things, like that you made a compliment to someone. Or they can be big things like a successful presentation at work.
When you do this over a period of time, you have a notebook full of successes. And when you go through it from time to time, you will recognize how your self-confidence increases.
All these things I discussed in this post are very powerful ways to help you to improve your self-confidence. As I mentioned before, the key is to do it regularly and take a bit time every day. Repetition makes the difference in life, and you are worth to improve your circumstances and have a better, happier life.
