Go on … Believe in Yourself

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

Henry Ford


Ever felt as though you were losing your nerve? One minute you’re completely fixed on your desired outcome and bang … You lose it. Your nerves are going … you feel shaky and as it gets worse you start to feel a little sick. What are you doing? You used to be so good at this!

Perhaps you play competitive sport. You know that feeling … the pressure’s on … you’re getting ready to take that shot … you know you’re good at this … aren’t you? … you were but what now? What if you miss? What then?

Or maybe you’re a trader and you know that you are only as good as your next trade … and the next trade is always harder than the last … Because all that uncertainty about how the market and how you will react is yet to come. Trading is just as much about managing yourself as the market. And how do you manage that anxiety?

Performance anxiety affects us all at one time or another. One minute you’re on top of the world, the next it feels like a slippery slope back down to where you started. Success is all about focus of attention and maintaining that requires energy … Which it turns out we don’t always have the endless supply of that we thought.

You see, sometimes we are in total flow. Everything goes exactly as we want it to … Exactly as we expect it to, because, well, why wouldn’t it? When we truly believe in ourselves, everything seems easy, like breathing or walking. We don’t have to think about doing these things, they just happen … Well, until panic sets in and then even breathing can seem like the hardest thing in the world. Our legs go wobbly and we have to think hard about completing even the simplest of tasks, such as walking straight and breathing slowly and deeply so that we don’t become even more light headed.

So what do we do about it? Well, when you’re in the flow and completing tasks with all of your focus, you are in a kind of trance, where your conscious and your subconscious mind are in harmony with each other. They both agree on where you are going and what you want to achieve and they both believe that you can do it. However, if any amount of doubt starts to creep in and takes hold, your subconscious may start to deviate from your conscious plan. If you believe that you can achieve then you will … But if your subconscious does not agree with you, then you won’t … Not without a great deal of effort and determination.

When our conscious and subconscious belief systems are out of alignment, we have a battle on our hands. One believing one thing, one another, is enough to bring about exhaustion in even the most determined of people … It’s just a matter of when. So the solution? Get your subconscious back on side! Which is where hypnotherapy can help. With the use of hypnosis to bypass the conscious mind, we can get right to the source of the problem and start changing those belief systems to match the ones we want. Our subconscious may be trying to protect us, but sometimes it just isn’t helping!

So what do you do next? Do you want to be making the right decisions, keep a head in potentially stressful situations, and gain greater success? I can help you to make the changes you need to change your sabotaging, subconscious belief systems into more positive, impactful belief systems. After all, how much longer do you think you can keep battling with your subconscious and win?
