A few years ago I got a dose of not having confidence in one area when I realized my drivers licensee expires on July 10 and I had to pass a written test. It just hit me hard for a couple of days and I felt a lot of stress and some anger because the questions are so technical it’s hard to remember the answers. So I started using the ideas below and studying the manual and my confidence grew. I passed the test. Garry
What is confidence? I would say it is feeling that you can do some specific task like pass the written exam above. It can also be a feeling that if you fail you will be able to handle that. It’s a feeling that you can handle life. It’s a feeling that the glass is more than half full and many good things will happen today.
Where does it come from? A part is from your Inner Mind (subconscious), a part from having a high chance of success, a part from how successful you are in other areas, and most of all doing the practical steps needed for example studying the drivers manual. As you study for the written drivers test you will become more confident and when you go thru these mental tools you will also become more confident. It is a combination of the physical and the mental (below).
Now many people don’t do the Mental part and that is fine. The Mental part makes it fast & easier. This Post will deal with the Mental part.
They are my favorite way to become confident when I have to do something. You listen and they take you into self hypnosis to get motivated, to help remove temptations & doubts, helps you do the practical steps like study, to gain insight with the end result you are more confident.
I have 2 types: ‘relax’ and ‘outloud’. The outloud keeps you in normal consciousness and can be listened to while sitting down, or cooking, cleaning, similar activities, most anytime anywhere or you can listen like it was music in the background just make sure you are in safe place. The relax track takes you deeper. You need to sit or lie down in a quiet area or use headphones. All are short 2-10 minutes so they will give you a quick burst of motivation. For a specific task you can use the Goals Tracks. The audio tracks are on this blog at the top click on ‘audio tracks’ and they are also on my Store downloads.
Use the words ‘I can’ often. I can pass the written drivers test. I can lose weight. I can exercise. I can get an ‘A’ on my Math exam. I can have $1,000 in commissions this week. Using Weight Loss as an example, the words ‘I can’ are easier to accept than ‘I lose 60 pounds’. If you have doubts start using the word ‘I can’ right away until you start believing you can. I can lose weight. I can exercise. I can get an ‘A’ on my Math exam. I can study and learn the material. I can pass the written drivers test.
Start telling yourself ‘I can xxx (be specific). Out loud or to yourself. Perhaps do this during a work break, while walking from your car, before studying, anytime anywhere just be in a safe place. When I ask you to say ‘I can reach my goal’ put in your own goal. For example: I can lose weight or I can get an ‘A’ on my Math exam or whatever your goal is.
Just daydream about reaching your goal. Imagine it happening. For example weight loss – See the scale coming up with lower numbers. See feel the benefits. Whatever you want daydream about it while waiting in line, taking a work break, listening to music, etc. Make sure you are in a safe place.
Do this as often as you can. It takes only a few seconds. Your Inner Mind needs to be told what you want to do and each time you are adding ++++ suggestions which will ignite your motivation which means you can do it fast & easier. The Conscious Mind is the driver in a car with the Inner Mind the car. You need to steer, to step on the gas pedal and step on the brakes when needed. You can reach your goals.
If you are having doubts floating thru your mind they could be from past failures. You may have tried to lose weight many times or tried to quit smoking. Each time you failed you felt crushed and hopeless. Or you may have lost the weight but gained it back.
Look at your history regarding this goal and other areas of your life. Bring up your past attempts in any area. Ask and reflect on these two questions. What was going on? What did I learn? You can also use Peace self hypnosis. Self hypnosis takes some time to learn but you don’t have to go deep. Just say the words and go with them. In Peace self hypnosis you can use one of three words: peace, relaxing, heavy and keep using the same word during the self hypnosis.
You can keep your eyes open or closed. Peace is usually closed, strong open, and ‘relax relax’ can be either. First read the self hypnosis script to get an idea of what it is. Then read these lines one by one and follow what is says until you get the script in your head and then let them unfold in your mind. Deep is not needed. Make sure you are in a safe place for example, not driving etc.
For Peace or Strong self hypnosis you have more than one choice of words to use i.e. for strong you can use strong or energized either one is good just use the same one thru the whole self hypnosis. For Peace self hypnosis you can choose from ‘relax’, ‘peace’, or ‘heavy’.
While your failures can be discouraging, your successes can be super motivating. Look over your life for your accomplishments. Bring into your mind a success of any kind that you had. Look at the difficulties you had to overcome. See feel yourself having these feelings of success. You can also use Strong or Peace self hypnosis.
Within me a new person is growing. One that is confident. See feel this new person growing inside me and becoming the new me. I feel it growing in my chest area.
