Hypnosis Can Create Self-Confidence

A social phobia is a fear of interacting with others on a social level. Examples would be imagining others are looking at you while waiting in line at a checkout, talking in front of other people, or even fear of talking on the phone.

Self-confidence is a mentality, which allows individuals to have confident, yet realistic views of themselves and their circumstance. Self-confident people have confidence in their own know-how, have a general sense of control over their lives, and believe that, within reason, they will be able to do what they need and want to do.

Self-confidence is a demeanor that is garnered through experiences. When a person experiences success, that person will tend to expect success. And that expectation will cause a feeling of self-confidence.

As an example: A young man wants to be a prizefighter, so he gets a trainer and a manager. His manager will not arrange a bout for him until he has built up enough skill and stamina. And even then, the manager will only put him up against a challenger that he knows his fighter can surpass. When his fighter beats the challenger, he is successful, and starts to gain confidence in his fighting skills.

With each encounter, the manager puts his contender up against an opponent who is a slightly better opponent then the last, but not good enough to beat his man. By the end of the third fight, the young fighter begins to expect to win his fourth, and so his confidence continues to improve. This scenario continues to repeat itself. And as long as the fighter is victorious, his expectations of success, and his feelings of self-confidence will continue to increase.
