Confidence & Purpose

Life is a Confidence Game

Build Confidence, Gain Confidence, Be Confident 

Confidence is having a feeling of trust in our abilities, qualities and judgment. While we know what confidence feels like or what it looks like in others, we may feel like we lost our confidence somewhere along the way. No longer feel adequate? Rediscover the strong, independent person you truly are. Tell yourself a better story. Gain confidence and correct your perception of who you are

build confidence 

Tentative when meeting others or presenting? 
Second guess yourself? Negative self-talk?
Build Public Speaking Confidence 

Shift your perception at the core so you feel more confident in front of others. Be more present, not worried about the outcome. Develop composure where you used to feel uncomfortable or nervous. Feel more relaxed in daily life and more charismatic with someone you are attracted to, a new acquaintance, or even an authority figure. 

Sales Success - Push Through Resistance and Self-Sabotage

To sell you must believ in yourself. If you’re nervous or hate cold calling, overcome anxiety and negative self-talk. Never underestimate the power of you. You deserve to be successful and reach your goals. BE confident. Whether sales, an entrepreneur or management, find your persuasive passion and boost confidence enjoy your work.

Hate Cold Calling?
* fear of embarrassment ("What if I say something stupid?")
* fear of rejection ("What if they don't like me?" "What if I am not good enough?")
* fear of failure ("What if I screw up this account?")
* fear of success ("What if I do great and draw a lot of attention?")

The problem isn't the phone or the call... it's fear. Is the fear real? Work through the fear to be comfortable. We have helped high end sales people, time share and small business owners become comfortable with the ask.

Phone Tips:

1. Ask direct questions. ("What time do you close today?")
2. Be polite ("Good morning," "Thank you," etc. These are actually easy things to say without any errors because you've been saying them your whole life. Use them a lot - you're good at them.)
3. Provide a specific product or outcome that is the purpose of the call ("I need you to...") highlight the "ask" (thing or things you need)... and pick up the phone. Start with "good morning/evening/whatever"... give the ask... and say "thank you." 

Want to Enjoy Getting up in Front of Groups?

Public Speaking Fear - Presentation Anxiety

A bigger fear than death for some. Your mind tries to protect you from past bad experiences. Deprogram that protection and alter it to something more useful. Teach your mind mental techniques that the pros use to speak comfortably in front of any group, at any time - even impromptu. Present with confidence and end embarrassing moments for good. Well-meaning people will tell you to ‘join a speaking group’… stop practicing the wrong behaviors over and over. Train your mind to present with ease and build confidence.

Test Anxiety? Can't Concentrate, Focus or Remember Everything? 

Can't afford to score poorly? Fear holds us back and clouds thinking. Train your brain for positive results, clarity in thought, mindful and confidence. Call for a free consultation. Ask about our student discounts. 

Negative People Controlling or Bullying You?
Establish healthy boundaries and gain confidence to stand up for yourself. Find your voice. You don't need to just take it. Stuck in a job with a co-worker or boss who is always in your business? Empower yourself. Don't let other people's negativity weigh you down. 

Invest in yourself. What's holding you back?

Connect With Your Purpose. Don't Waste Another Day
Passionate about your career or just punching the clock every day? A lack of purpose or passion results in trudging through life with little motivation and no enthusiasm. Humans seek love and inner peace. We need to feel valued and have a sense of belonging. Haven’t found what you’re looking for in life? Time to try something new. Your purpose or your passion is the thing that you’ve talked yourself out of… the thing that you’ve given up on because your own limiting beliefs told you that “you can’t,” “you shouldn’t,” or “you don’t deserve to.” Rediscover your purpose and passion. Call today for a free phone consultation. 

Life Transitions

As baby boomers make the life transition into retirement, many feel “being put out to pasture.” We fear change. We fear loss. We fear different. We fear that we no longer matter, no longer fit, and no longer have anything to achieve. We fear missing out. We fear retirement is where we go to die. Our mind gets us acting like we aren’t going to do very well out there in the great unknown—retirement. And along comes the fear response. Make your life transition something to look forward to.

Motivation Puts An End to Procrastination

Don't let your emotions get the best of you. There is a reason behind your lack of motivation and your desire to procrastinate. Once you figure out what it is then you are free to work with that part to get it done. Move past procrastination to get to your goal. Why procrastinate any longer? Motivation awaits you.

Is Your Inner Voice a Crook, Con Artist, or Champion?

Loser. Idiot. Ugly. Fat. Shameful. Disgusting. Weak. What’s the worst thing you say about yourself? Do fear, hesitation and doubt shut you down every time you have to do something important? If you’ve been met with internal resistance to your success, you probably have an inner voice that is a crook or a con artist.

How is it that our own inner voice is such a downer? If it’s our inner voice—our own mind/our own thoughts—shouldn’t it get on the same page and be helping us, not holding us back with all of its worry, negativity, blame, hate and doubt? If it’s our mind, how can it be so cranky and negative about our own potential?  

“The key is to remember that your subconscious mind has the mission of protecting you,” explains Beverly Craddock, Master Hypnotist. “Whatever you’re feeling—stress, fear, even anxiety—it is something that your mind is creating to protect you.”

When we set out to do something new, meet new people, speak to a group, or even enter a busy environment where people might judge us, the subconscious mind can create a physiological response, such as shortness of breath, sweaty palms and a racing heart, because it wants us to be alert to the danger it perceives. This is a great thing if we’re walking into a jungle filled with man-eating dinosaurs, but it isn’t a very effective response when trying to talk to someone or give a presentation. The mind believes we are facing a danger because we have previously been harmed or felt judged in one of these situations. It is only able to remind us of these previous hurts or harms by using our body’s system to protect us. If we ignore the initial warnings, or try to gut through it, we’re likely to just end up making the situation even worse because our subconscious mind will need to ramp up the warnings. Ignoring the mind’s warning system means that the warnings will need to be more severe in order to get our attention.

Unfortunately, the subconscious mind is a notoriously bad interpreter of events. It often lies to us or blows things out of proportion based on the age we were during previous experiences. The anxiety experienced during a poor speaking performance in high school is stored in the subconscious. Even though the individual has grown since then and consciously knows that the old event is in the distant past, the subconscious is trying to protect him/her from a repeat of the pain, hurt or humiliation that the individual faced while young.

“People constantly try to shut off the protective voice, but your mind will never stop trying to protect you,” Craddock says. “If you want to change the subconscious response, you’ve got to alter the subconscious understanding of past events through hypnosis. You will never consciously out-argue your subconscious mind.”

The subconscious mind is the center of all of our feelings. Even when we say things like, “There’s nothing to be afraid of, I’ve done this many times,” our subconscious mind can still create anxiety, stress or fear. The reason that we can consciously know that something shouldn’t be frightening but are still able to feel afraid is that our subconscious feelings have learned that our conscious thoughts can be deceptive. Even though our conscious mind knows the facts of the situation, the subconscious doesn’t trust those facts because they conflict with what it has experienced in the past. Because our thoughts have “lied” to our feelings before, we’ve created two parts of our mind that don’t trust each other. In that predicament, we’ve got to find a way to get subconscious and conscious to agree.

“Hypnosis is effective for helping get the two parts of your own mind on the same page,” Craddock concludes. “You can’t consciously argue your way out of a feeling any more than you can feel your way out of a thought. The two come from separate parts of the human mind and they need an interpreter—and that’s what good hypnotists do. We help people become more confident.”
