Confidence All Begins in the Mind
- Being confident is often the underpinning factor to your success
- No longer let lack of confidence prevent you from overcoming fears or from getting what you richly deserve in your life
- Finally have the confidence to be able to achieve what you want – whether it’s something simple or something complex… Be unstoppable! Be a WINNER!
Everything you are, everything you want to be, and everything you will be has to do with the amount of confidence you have. If you think about it, there isn’t anything you have or are that wasn’t made possible through first believing in yourself that you could get it, be it, have it, or do it. So, when we work on our confidence with the Unlimited Confidence Hypnosis MP3, we work on that part of ourselves which is creating our lives.
Once you change your inner world through hypnosis you automatically, without even trying, change your outer world because your subconscious mind always feeds your conscious mind with ideas.
These ideas are what power your life when you have a positive and confident life. When your ideas are hindered by your lack of confidence you find yourself circling rather than moving forward.
The goal of hypnotherapy or any other goal of therapy is to get you moving forward in a straight line in your life toward a goal. So, by using basic, simply, yet highly effective techniques, I cause changes in people’s lives; changes which lead them to their goals.
By purchasing this unlimited confidence hypnosis mp3 download, you will be lead to your goal with all the confidence that you need. When I say led toward your goal, I don’t mean in a zombielike fashion. I mean that when you area fully alert, fully conscious, you will have the ability to move forward in your life using the power which you will have from your subconscious mind.
Without even thinking about it, your subconscious mind will feed your conscious mind powerful ideas and goals. You will behave just like you always would, wide awake, functioning normally with the exception that you will be taking chances which you wouldn’t ordinarily take.
Talking to people with whom you would not ordinarily have a conversation and doing things which enhance the quality of your life are things which, without the power of hypnosis, you would not do. Many of my clients report that the people in their lives notice a dramatic change in the way my clients interact with them and others.
Getting a raise at a job or getting the job itself is not uncommon as a side effect of using this hypnotherapy recording. You will find that when you master confidence, every part of your life begins to change whether it’s losing weight, getting better grades, or going after love interests. Everything in your life will be affected positively when you begin believing in yourself with the help of this Unlimited Confidence Hypnosis MP3 session.
By simply listening at night to this recording for 21 nights in a row, you will find that the changes take place in your life almost magically without any conscious effort on your part.
When I work with clients in person no matter what we are working on, stopping smoking, making more money, etc. I always make sure that the first hypnotherapy session is about confidence. Confidence is so essential to every positive change you want to make in your life that without it you will go no where and with it you will go anywhere you want to go.
I have had the honor and privilege of working with many actors in Hollywood and though you wouldn’t know it by looking at them and watching them work their magic on screen, many of them are naturally shy and lacking in confidence.
When I work with them, I tackle confidence first taking an actor who has faked his or her way through being confident and molding them quickly and easily into someone who is actually confident through and through.
This allows mediocre actors to become A list celebrities and for A list celebrities to maintain their lucrative positions. I know that if these people can benefit from hypnotherapy you can as well. Because in addition to working with these types of people I have worked with everyday people like you and I and I know from working with a wide variety of people that we are all the same.
We all have some degree of doubt about ourselves, our futures, our abilities, our worthiness, to have these qualities are human but to have them hold us back is debilitating. So, the method to overcoming these challenges and minimizing the factors working against you is easily accomplished with hypnosis.
For most people, it is easy to feel confident in some areas. It is also relatively easy to have all around confidence, a small percentage of the time. But to maintain consistent confidence, the kind that really propels your life forward, can be very difficult to do without a little help.
How do you teach yourself to have more confidence? Steve G. Jones knows that confidence comes from the mind. Doing the same thing over and over until it becomes so natural to you it is automatic would give you confidence in it, wouldn’t it? What if you could get that confidence, broad spectrum?
Wouldn’t it be nice, whenever the need arises, to tap into more confidence? To be more secure, more sure of yourself? What if we could just snap our fingers and improve our confidence before a job interview by remembering a soothing a voice?
Hypnosis is about going deep into a trance and practicing doing what your goal is, over and over until you get more confident at it and then applying that confidence everywhere in your life. In a way, Hypnotherapy is a just a faster way to get where you want to go.
Self-hypnosis lets you create the confidence you want, quickly, and reinforce it, and apply it as you need. You still need to put in the work. You need to reach out and buy the Unlimited Confidence Hypnosis MP3 audio. You need to listen to it every day for at least 21 days to start, so that you hypnotize yourself, and create the confidence base on which to build new foundations and strengthen old ones. You need to be willing to try, want to improve.
But the end result is that you can stand a little taller. You will notice and feel better, and other people will notice as well. The better you feel, the more you want to take care of yourself. You begin to look better and gain more confidence and it becomes an endless cycle.
Confidence and happiness tend to go together. Confidence doesn’t mean that you will be fearless in every situation. But it does mean that you will be a little more comfortable in your skin and more assured of the things you do well
Part of confidence is being aware of the areas that aren’t your biggest strengths and knowing that you have the wisdom to delegate that work to someone who specializes in that kind of task and the intuition to know if that person is the right fit for you for what you want to get done. The fact that you’re willing to improve is commendable. Self-improvement is what really helps people transcend to the next level. To improve your confidence, begin listening to the calm voice, and let the hypnosis take you to where you need to go.

Are you confident when you walk down the street?
Are you confident when talking with people you know and people you don’t know?
Are you confident in your looks?
Are you confident in your abilities?
Your answer to all of these questions should be YES! Answering yes to all of these questions means you have confidence in yourself. Confidence is simply a state of mind and it’s a state of mind that everyone should have, but not everyone does.
Confidence has an impact on almost everything that we do. It affects how we feel and how we react to things. It also effects how others perceive us and react to us. If you are beginning to think that you are lacking self-confidence, that is okay. The good news is that confidence can be learned. You can actually “practice” confidence and become more confident.
Ask yourself this: In what area do I need to improve my confidence? Perhaps you want more confidence when you are talking with people. Perhaps you want more confidence in your own abilities. Perhaps you want more confidence in the way you look. Get out of your comfort zone and feel good about yourself! You can achieve confidence simply by practicing it. Take a risk and don’t let yourself be embarrassed or disappointed by a negative outcome. Chances are that there will be a positive outcome and you will realize that you can be confident in any situation.
“Confidence gives you courage and extends your reach. It lets you take greater risks and achieve far more than you ever thought possible” (Capitalism Magazine, 2002)
Confidence, or self-esteem, is something that is essential to our daily experiences and the absence of it is felt strongly and more noticeably than when we do feel confident. When one feels confident about some skill, it is done fluidly and often with gradual improvement, even until pride sets in. However, when one lacks confidence, there can be feelings of inadequacy, shame, guilt or worthlessness. Sometimes, in its strong form, lack of self-confidence about oneself and one’s traits results in a fear of being “found out” leading people to isolate more and avoid attention from others who might see where they are lacking. The same is true for the effect of having confidence when it comes to social communication. For example, with verbal expression, one who feels confident will not be plagued by feeling limited in what they can say or worry that they said the wrong thing.
In daily interactions, the effect of whether or not one feels confident is ever-present, influencing not only how we talk to our family and friends and what we say to them, but also a key aspect at the workplace, particularly at sales jobs, as would be expected. There are so many people with a craft that is hidden because they lack the confidence to share or show off their creations with the world. Whether someone is a cook, photographer, dancer, writer, musician or any other type of artists, there is the issue of confidence not only because of external pressure or self-consciousness, but also because of internal comparisons. Many people have such worthwhile and crucial things they should say but do not have the confidence to tell their views to others. Even the student in class who cannot ask the question in front of their peers is struggling with confidence.
Self-esteem is a critical factor in experiences, permitting meaning and value to be assigned to the self, to the extent it can be extracted from the situation and/or events. It plays a role in both healthy and unhealthy mental states, and is related to motivation, conservatism, prejudice, authoritarianism, attraction, deviant behavior and performance (Stafrace 2004). Low self esteem is correlated with a slew of disorders including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, substance abuse and adjustment to both acute and chronic medical conditions (Robson, 1988; Roy, Neale, & Kendler, 1995). Given all this, there are clearly biological underpinnings to confidence but still the ability to alter it, which in turn has reflectively profound effects.
The same mechanism that causes self-esteem to decrease can also cause it to increase and a shift in either direction has ramifications that are unmistakable. The composite is affected by its parts, such that if one has low self-esteem it can be a disproportionate effect from a small area of feeling limited, that they cannot live up to standards and are incompetent. Inversely, if someone has higher and healthier self-esteem, it can be because of a proficiency or capability in a highly specialized area. A few examples of the different areas one can have more or less self-esteem include level of influence, relationships, position of power, expertise, appearance and education.
The goal is not to have a very high self-esteem, since that does not lead to greater improvement and even has been shown to be related to persistence and perseverance in the face of failure. Rather, the goal is to cause a less reduced self-esteem, or what can be thought of as a healthier level of confidence in order to promote functional improvement and counteract the intrusive beliefs held that cause sufferers to feel inadequate. When one does not feel good enough, he or she will give up quickly if the gap between their reality and the desired outcome is perceived as too large, even when it is in fact surmountable for them (Fraser 2012).
Some scholars view self-confidence as rooted inextricably in self-efficacy (Rutter 1985). This means that someone with long term marriage problems and inability to find a job could develop habitual low self-esteem while someone else who is promoted regularly and desired by many members of the opposite sex could develop a healthy higher self-esteem. The prevailing mindset endures many smaller events that might negate it.
An additional element contributing to level of self-confidence is parenting style, of which there are four factors (Coopersmith 1967). One factor of this is a parent demonstrating unconditional acceptance rather than conditional acceptance which forces a child to carry the weight of a particular preference and the subsequent burden of needing to live up to the specific standards in order to be accepted. Another factor is when a parent establishes and enforces boundaries that are clearly communicated and well-defined. Respecting and having wide tolerance for individual action is a third factor of parenting style that contributes to confidence in adulthood. One more factor is the level of self-esteem in the parents themselves, in other words, children of parents who have high confidence in themselves are more likely to have higher confidence too.
It might not seem necessary to name the benefits of having greater confidence, but they are quite specific and are easily recognized as attributes of the ideal self many people carry within them. People with higher self-esteem are less socially isolated, demonstrate fewer tendencies to be hostile-dependent or exploitative with others, and are more accepting, better at leading active lives and demonstrate a sense of being self-determining (Coopersmith 1967). Individuals with healthy self-esteem are better able to tolerate distress, be it internal or externally generated, without isolating themselves from inner experiences. Furthermore, they are less anxious, less sensitive to criticism, pay greater attention to personal values than fitting in with the group and more willing to express a controversial viewpoint (Stafrace 2004). In addition, it is correlated with having better physical health, enjoying more satisfying relationships, valuing independence, welcoming competition and anticipating more success (Rosenberg 1965).
Hypnosis has been used to improve confidence for close to five decades in a clinical setting, with published studies that even described specific techniques. One of the first techniques was ego-strengthening (Hartland 1971) which has an underlying assumption that there are secondary alterations to aspects of self-esteem and people need to first resolve these issues to get back to a starting point. Like when a surgical patient needs to be stabilized before surgery can begin, a person with impaired confidence can benefit from positive suggestions of self worth and personal effectiveness (Stafrace 2004). This is especially true for some people who are unable or unwilling to relieve themselves of their stable albeit impaired enduring self-esteem until they feel strong enough to be without it (Hartland 1971).
Using hypnosis therapeutically to address a lack of confidence involves confronting irrational negative assumptions and unlearning the learned negative views of self, regardless of whether they are faced in thought, emotion, behavior, or a combination (Hammond 1990). Additionally, positive suggestions and internal dialogue will linger and build up self-esteem even post-hypnosis. In this way, a person can have not only lasting effects for the area they wanted improvement of confidence in, but eventually, also secondary and indirect results. These consequences that happen later on can involve different parts of the self can build on each other and cause broad spectrum improvements in a host of areas. Sometimes, the benefits achieved do not even seem like they were related to the original problem even remotely.
One way that hypnosis is used for improving self-confidence is in the popular field of sports psychology. The aim of these professionals is to maximize mental hygiene in athletes as well as of course to enhance performance. Hypnosis is one of the techniques used for maintaining emotional and autonomic control while in an environment that is highly competitive and taxing and helps for setting goals and increasing motivation as well. Hypnosis can build self-confidence and improve self-efficacy in the athletes who undergo hypnosis, especially when in combination with other techniques, and ultimately improves performance, which is the primary goal (Lardon and Fitzgerald 2013).
Another way hypnosis can improve confidence is in relationships involving intimacy or sexual behavior. Hypnotherapy, when used in patients who had prostate surgery, could help even those having erectile dysfunction or issues with establishing an erection. Through a number of different techniques, hypnosis helps one engage in processes that offer renewed normalcy, namely addressing emotional responses as well as exploring new intimate practices eventually to be implemented. Therefore, hypnosis contributes greatly to improving self-esteem, by repairing the confidence that became diminished when sexual functioning and intimate relationships were not happening appropriately. (Stephan 2013).
Another area in which hypnosis and hypnotherapy improve confidence in people is when administered by a psychiatric nurse in both general or advanced practice. Many nurses are educated and well positioned to use hypnosis to relieve physical symptoms but there are additional clinical benefits to using hypnosis, particularly relevant to their work. Hypnosis helps alleviate anxiety, reduce arousal, control behavior and develop control over emotions that are adverse such as worry or anger. Furthermore, as a result, not only is control of symptoms achieved, but self-confidence, or self-esteem, is improved too (Valente 2003).
A case study examined the success of hypnosis as a confidence strengthening technique and as an anxiety management tool in the treatment of an individual with a long-term social communication disorder that hadn’t responded to other treatments. Over the course of four sessions, the individual experienced a decrease in anxiety, increases in social communication, the ability to attend responsibilities, and most relevantly, heightened self-confidence. Follow-up visits at one, three and six months showed evidence of not only maintained effects but also, incredibly, continued improvement. Unexpectedly but fortunately, additional positive features showed up post-treatment, namely improved emotional well-being and feelings of social inclusion (Byron 2002).
In a fifty two person study, researchers attempted to see whether a person’s ability to be hypnotized, or susceptibility, was dependent on the type of esteem suggestion. The technique used was ego-strengthening (Hartland 1971) and it was utilized over the course of four sessions. The study did not have a control group to compare results to, but did still have significant results for the students that were highly responsive to hypnosis. The two aspects most responsive were self-satisfaction and personal self-concept (Koe and Oldridge 1986). This means that for someone highly responsive to hypnosis, results might be more pronounced in specific areas of self-esteem.
A study with 33 individuals was done to ascertain whether the specific hypnotic techniques of ego-strengthening and positive imagery improved the self-confidence of counseling trainees among other things related to acquiring effective counseling skills. Randomly assigned to groups, each received five weekly hourlong sessions, two for the hypnotic techniques and one as a control reading the text of their training. While there was no difference in the acquisition of counseling skills, there was definitely a trend towards higher self-confidence (Bruhn 1982). Perhaps in future studies there will be more persuading conclusions if a larger sample size is used and fewer confounding variables are present that can affect the results.
Fifty nine soccer players participated in a study evaluating the effects of hypnosis on self-efficacy and soccer performance. They were randomly assigned to either a control group that watched videos of professional soccer plays or the experimental group that received hypnosis for three sessions using ego-strengthening suggestions. In follow up tests, it was clear that the hypnosis group performed better and were more efficacious than the members of the control group. In addition, four weeks later these differences were still present. Additionally, the results indicated that it was not the case that the hypnosis affected self-efficacy which in turn mediated changes in performance, but rather that hypnosis was responsible for both the soccer players’ improved performance and the enhanced self-efficacy separately, even though the two were actually correlated (Barker et al. 2010).
In yet another study using two hundred twenty four participants, the effectiveness of ego-strengthening hypnosis in improving self-esteem and reducing depression was measured on a number of different scales, and to see how it stacked up to progressive relaxation techniques. The participants reported improvement in both depression and self-esteem after the protocol that occurred over the course of two weeks, including a variety of psychometric tests and hypnosis or progressive relaxation sessions. The hypnotized individuals experienced as much improvement as progressive relaxation techniques. What’s more, highly hypnotizable individuals experienced greater improvement in depression and self-esteem during ego-strengthening than during progressive relaxation (Lavertue et al. 2002)
There is a large body of research with evidence of hypnosis and hypnotherapy improving confidence and the scope of this research widens with each study’s unique contribution to the literature. This scientific backing lends credence to the claims by practitioners of hypnosis and also offers a tool that is applicable in a number of different treatment types by those whose careers are under the umbrella of mental health. Given the ubiquitous presence of an individual’s self-esteem and the influential capacity confidence has on all thoughts, emotions and behaviors, this is an exceptionally valuable life-altering process available to improve your future

Hypnotic techniques shape the core beliefs that characterize self-esteem and (perceived) self-efficacy, enhancing them, using direct techniques like ego strengthening or using indirect methods that might include resolving psychic conflict or reducing distressing affect, behaviors and cognition (Self-Esteem, Hypnosis, and Ego-Enhancement).
