Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. Some say that you can have ‘too much self-esteem’ but what they are really referring to is a superiority complex. Self-esteem isn’t about feeling superior to anyone but about being confident and relaxed with your own self.
Low self-esteem is a sign of low self-confidence. Having good self-esteem is necessary to deal with problems in life. Low self-esteem means that you will be more insecure about yourself and your abilities. Also, you will probably get overwhelmed in some social situations and even at work.

Tips for Improving Self-Esteem with Self-Hypnosis
Believe in yourself. Everyone has something to offer society and the world. Make a list of all your good qualities so you get a better idea of what you can do and to prove to yourself that you have value. Valuing yourself is essential to good self-esteem. One thing that helps is walking with confidence. Walk with your back straight and head up. Having a confident posture has an impact on your subconscious mind and actually makes you feel more confident therefore increasing your self-esteem.
Be grateful. Feeling grateful for what you have is extremely important in life. If you are reading this then you are probably better off than over 60% of the world’s population (as you have access to a computer). If you feel grateful for what you have and can do then a superiority complex is unlikely to control your personality. Be grateful for other people as well. After all without others you would be alone and bored. Everyone brings something to the table and appreciating other people’s skills and needs will make you a more understanding person.
Be good to yourself. Eat right and exercise you will feel good about yourself. Meditating (or doing self-hypnosis) will also help.
Self-Confidence with Self-Hypnosis
If you are uncomfortable with meetings, doing a presentation or in social situations then you need to improve your self-confidence. Self-hypnosis can help you overcome insecurity in situations where your confidence just isn’t enough.
Before you do any hypnosis for confidence enhancement you first have to prepare yourself. Hypnosis doesn’t work if you don’t genuinely want the affirmations, visualizations or suggestions that you focus on in your self-hypnosis practice to work. In other words you need to believe in yourself and your ability to grow for any type of self-improvement hypnosis to work. You also need to outline your strong points and enhance them so you have a plan for increasing your self-confidence over time.
Basic Tips For Confidence Enhancement
Make a list of all positive things about yourself – Everything good you have done, compliments you have received, skills you have, situations you are confident in and things you like to do that are positive are all things you should put on your list of ‘strong points about yourself’.
Pick 1 or 2 things to work on – If you try and apply self-confidence to all areas you desire to improve in at once you may be overwhelmed or discourage. Choose 1 or 2 areas of your life that you want to increase your confidence in. Visualize exactly how you want to be in the future. Your goal has to be well defined to success in anything. Then go to a deep level of relaxation or meditation and repeat affirmations and do a visualization of how you want to act and behave in your chosen situation.
Pretend till it become real – This is the most important aspect of adopting new attitudes. If you pretend to be confident you will be more confident. If you keep pretending you will do better in every situation where you need greater confidence. Your successes (which you should list) will increase your confidence automatically till you are not pretending anymore. This is like a never ending cycle of improvement.
