Developing greater confidence in yourself

14/09/2010 07:25

Everyone has some confidence, even the people who say that they don't. If someone didn't have confidence they wouldn't get out of bed in the morning to face their day. However, having low self confidence can cause us to seek out a comfort zone in our lives. Within the comfort zone it might be safe and secure but it doesn't help you move forward in life to achieve the goals that you set for yourself.

When we develop more confidence and self belief we begin to step outside of the comfort zone and can begin doing the things that we want to be able to do and need to be able to do to be successful.

So how do you develop more confidence? Here are a few things that you can do to help you

-Begin to become aware of the thoughts within your mind that prevent you from doing things. Thoughts like "I can't do that". Begin to take inventory of these thoughts and when you catch yourself tell yourself to stop that thought. Then insert a new thought such as "I can do that!"

-Close your eyes and imagine yourself as you want to be in the future. See yourself confident and doing the things you want to do. Step into the image and really feel it. Imagine it is you. This is a very powerful self hypnosis technique.

-Do one thing each week that either you are afraid to do or don't want to do. When you start doing these tasks, it moves you out of your comfort zone and you begin to build momentum.

Also, using hypnosis MP3's can be very beneficial in developing more confidence. I have recorded a hypnosis program called The Key To Confidence-Unlocking Your True Potential. It can be found at the below link to sample and download.
