Have you ever wondered why some people in life are so successful and others aren’t? Maybe you’ve faced an opportunity that you were afraid to take because you have low self esteem. If this has ever happened to you, you are not alone. Many people have low self esteem and don’t make the most of their lives, but you can change all that. Here are some tips to help you increase your self esteem.
Your self esteem is what you think and say about yourself. If you trash talk yourself, you have to stop. You wouldn’t verbally beat up a friend, so don’t do it to yourself either. Take out a sheet of paper and make a list of all the bad things you think and say about yourself. Now make another list of positive things you could say instead. Whenever you catch yourself thinking or saying something negative, immediately stop and counter it with something positive. This will take some practice, but you will eventually be able to stop all the trash talk and think and feel much better about yourself.
Hypnosis is another way to increase your self esteem. The very root of all the negative things you think and say about yourself is in your unconscious mind. You can get to the root of it all by accessing that part of your mind with hypnosis. You will be able to replace all of the negative thoughts with healthier, more positive thoughts. As a result, you will feel refreshed, relaxed, and much better about yourself.
For example, you may think that bad things happen because of you – you’re stupid, you’re lazy, you’re worthless. This negative view of the world tricks you into believing you are responsible for everything. If this is true, why are you so loathing to believe that when things go right? Hypnosis can help you change that negative view and be more fair and objective about the part you played in an event’s success or failure.
Low self esteem can also come from believing that because one part of your life is broken, the rest of your life is doomed. Just because you were made redundant from your job doesn’t mean your relationship with your family and friends will be ruined too. Hypnosis can allow you to compartmentalize your life and break down problems into manageable chunks that you have a fair chance of solving.
You can increase your self esteem by remembering that when bad things happen, they aren’t forever. So you embarrassed yourself at a party. No matter, there will be hundreds of other parties to go to that you won’t. Learning a new skill, such as self-hypnosis, can enable you to increase your self esteem naturally and quickly, and become the person you want to be.
