Are you hard on yourself? Many of us are. If you were to monitor your conversations with yourself you might find that you unconsciously criticize yourself more than you think. Unfortunately that can work against you in many areas of your life, especially when it comes to confidence.
The problem is that you probably do not notice that you are subtly putting yourself down, day after day after day, but your subconscious mind notices. Those constant negative put downs and conversations to yourself affect you in what you decide to do each day. Do you dare go for that job, promotion, partner those healthy choices, exercise, food or that friendship? You may not feel like you deserve to have what you want in life and therefore develop sabotaging behaviors that interfere with your healthy goals. If you are consistently saying/hearing negative thoughts about you how can you feel good about yourself, how can you be successful, a responsive partner and parent and what are you passing on to your children?
We are after all most suggestible to ourselves so isn’t it important to give yourself positive messages? We may not have learned that at home or at school or in life, but you can learn and hypnosis can help.
If you find that you are not creating enough success in your work, your personal life in which you seem to be attracting what you do not want it is essential to change the channel on those negative suggestions. It is important to begin to learn to be more mindful, patient, gentle and forgiving toward yourself in order to have the life you want and deserve.
This may sound like a tall order, to realign your thinking, but with the assistance of hypnosis, I have seen many clients do just that, and their lives just get better and better.
