Why do people suffer from low confidence?
People can suffer from low confidence due to various factors, which can be interconnected and unique to everyone. Rather than acknowledge how smart, strong, and resilient they are, many people spend time comparing their weaknesses to someone else’s strengths. They will playback moments of defeat in their minds or develop an unhealthy attachment to a perception of who or what they need to be like. Many people with confidence issues have been conditioned over time to behave exactly this way.
All over the media, we see millionaire CEOs turned into celebrities, the glamorisation of influencers with millions of followers, and hustle-culture workaholics being praised for their achievements. All of which send a subliminal message of toxic productivity and misleading beliefs about what success and confidence should look like.
With such pervasive messages, it’s easy for people to take on these unrealistic societal expectations and the pressure to meet certain standards, which can leave them feeling inadequate and diminish their self-confidence. Being part of this toxic representation of achievement, spending and unrealistic busy schedules is certain to affect anyone’s confidence and self-worth. Much of what we see and hear across social media is simply not achievable, nor is it healthy to want to. Here are some more reasons why someone may experience low confidence:
Negative self-image: Negative self-perception, often influenced by societal standards, comparing oneself to others, or being overly critical of one’s appearance, abilities, or achievements, can significantly impact confidence levels.
Childhood experiences: Early life experiences, such as critical or unsupportive parenting, bullying, trauma, or frequent failures, can shape a person’s beliefs about themselves and their abilities. Negative experiences during childhood can contribute to low confidence in adulthood.
Perfectionism and fear of failure: Setting excessively high standards for oneself and having a fear of failure can undermine confidence. The constant pressure to be perfect can create a fear of making mistakes or taking risks, leading to self-doubt and diminished confidence.
Lack of positive reinforcement: A lack of positive feedback, encouragement, or recognition from others can contribute to low self-confidence. When individuals don’t receive validation or acknowledgement for their efforts and achievements, it can undermine their belief in themselves. Read my article, How to be Your Own Cheerleader, it introduces you to self-praise and how this is even more powerful than receiving recognition from others.
Past failures or rejections: Previous experiences of failure, rejection, or criticism can leave a lasting impact on confidence. Negative feedback or setbacks can create a fear of repeating past mistakes and lower a person’s belief in their abilities.
Lack of skills or competence: If individuals feel they lack the necessary skills, knowledge, or competence in a particular area, it can lead to low confidence. Feeling unprepared or inexperienced can make people doubt their ability to succeed.
<b>Mental health issues: </b>Mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem can significantly impact confidence levels. These conditions often involve negative thought patterns, self-doubt, and a distorted perception of oneself.
How a lack of self-confidence affect your life
A lack of self-confidence can hold people back in their lives and the things they want to achieve – their goals, which can be frustrating and difficult to deal with. Whether it’s a relationship breakdown, a business or career issue, or a failure to achieve something that we’ve worked for, our confidence can take a real knock.
Guilt and shame over perceived failures can also give rise to the fear that whispers, “You will always be a failure.” I regularly refer to these whispers with my clients as their ‘inner critic’ or ‘critical mind’, an annoying little voice of self-doubt inside their head that always seems to highlight their flaws and diminish their confidence.
The things people say to themselves about not being smart enough, good enough, or brave enough make them lose confidence and trust in their abilities. It’s important to note that although these thoughts aren’t painting a perfect picture, they can, at the very moment, feel true to the individual. Indeed, the more someone says these things to themselves, the more blurred the lines become between what is real and what is exaggerated negative self-projection.
Even the smallest adjustment to a person’s perspective can lead to a profound, mind-altering shift in their confidence and how they think of themselves.
Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) can help you get super confident
Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) can help you get super confident, but it’s important to work with an expert therapist like myself to guide you through the process and provide additional support as needed.
As a specialist in Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) and Hypnotherapy, I can help you access your subconscious mind and identify and address the root cause of the issues and conditions that are causing your confidence issues and holding you back. I use specialised techniques, including regression, suggestions, visualisation, and personalised audio to help you install powerful, positive new beliefs and behaviours, and master your confidence.
RTT™ can help improve confidence by targeting and transforming any underlying limiting beliefs, negative thought patterns, or emotional blocks that may be contributing to low self-esteem or lack of confidence. Here’s how RTT™ can help with confidence issues:
Identifying limiting beliefs: RTT™ helps you uncover the deep-seated beliefs and thoughts that are holding you back from feeling confident. These beliefs are often formed in early childhood and can continue to impact your self-perception. Throughout the therapeutic process, RTT™ helps you recognise and challenge these beliefs.
Rewiring the mind: Once limiting beliefs are identified, RTT™ uses techniques like hypnotherapy to access the subconscious mind and rewire negative thought patterns. By replacing negative beliefs with positive and empowering ones, RTT™ helps build a new foundation of confidence.
Resolving past traumas: Confidence issues are often linked to past traumas or negative experiences. RTT™ can help uncover and heal these traumas, allowing you to let go of emotional burdens and regain self-assurance.
Building a positive self-image: RTT™ can help you build a strong and positive self-image. By reframing past experiences and enhancing self-perception, you can develop a healthier sense of self-worth and confidence.
Improving self-acceptance: RTT™ helps you accept and appreciate yourself for who you are, embracing your strengths and acknowledging your achievements. This self-acceptance contributes to improved self-confidence.
Strengthening skills and resources: RTT™ can help you develop and strengthen the skills, qualities, and resources needed to boost confidence in specific areas of your life. It can provide practical strategies and techniques to overcome challenges and build competence in areas where you may feel less confident.
RTT™ can be a powerful tool for increasing confidence. By identifying negative self-talk, rewriting negative beliefs, goal setting, self-reflection, and visualising, you can create a confident and more supportive inner voice that empowers you to achieve your goals and live your best life. For more information on creating a powerful inner voice, read my article How to be Your Own Cheerleader.
Read Emily's story...
Emily (name changed for privacy) struggled with low self-confidence. She had doubts and insecurities that often clouded her mind, preventing her from fully embracing her potential. Tired of her own self-doubt, Emily researched the most effective therapies for treating her confidence issues, and the best therapists to support her.
Confident I could help her, Emily reached out to COACHD and I agreed to work with Emily using a powerful transformational process that would forever change her life.
During our initial session, Emily shared her fears and self-criticisms with me, and I explained the underlying principles of Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™). I emphasised that the key to overcoming low confidence was to address the root cause of Emily’s issue, buried deep within her subconscious mind.
Using hypnosis I guided Emily into a state of deep relaxation, and together, we reviewed Emily’s past, exploring significant moments and experiences that had shaped her self-perception. Through the power of hypnosis and regression, Emily gained insight into the beliefs she had adopted over time, often without realising the impact these beliefs were having on her confidence.
During hypnosis, and a process called ‘hypnotic regression’, Emily revisited a childhood memory where she had been teased horribly by her classmates for her appearance. As she relived the painful incident, I helped Emily reframe the experience so that it lost all significance and relevance to the person she is today. By focusing on the emotions that had surfaced during that memory I helped Emily understand that the event and the hurtful words she had experienced, were never a reflection of her worth but rather a reflection of the insecurities of others.
As our session continued, Emily explored a belief she held about her own intelligence. She had always considered herself less capable than her peers, fearing failure and judgment. Again, using hypnotic regression to explore past events that might have caused this damaging belief, Emily realised that this belief stemmed from an innocent comment made by a teacher during her early school years. Again, I helped Emily reframe the experience so that she understood that her worth wasn’t defined by her academic performance but by her unique strengths and qualities.
During our session, Emily became increasingly aware of the self-limiting beliefs that had held her back for so long. I skilfully integrated various therapeutic techniques, including the use of positive affirmations, and visualisation exercises to help reprogram Emily’s subconscious mind. My words focused Emily on cultivating feelings of self-compassion, embracing her strengths, and shifting her internal dialogue towards one of self-belief and ultimate confidence.
Since the mind learns through repetition, I produced a powerful 20-minute recording that Emily would listen to during self-hypnosis at least once a day, for a minimum of 21 days. Emily was familiar with the process of self-hypnosis now that we had used this technique during our session. The recording helped Emily install her new beliefs and make a habit of using her positive affirmations, especially when she felt doubtful or insecure. The recording had a profound effect on Emily, it helped her feel more confident, resilient, and capable, and to truly believe in her potential.
Finally, I helped Emily practice self-compassion and forgiveness so that she approached life with newfound courage, taking on challenges she once deemed impossible. With each step, Emily’s self-belief grew stronger, and she discovered a sense of liberation and authenticity she had never experienced before.
Emily was astounded by the impact COACHD therapies had on her life. She realised that her journey was not only about building confidence but also about reclaiming her true self, unburdened by the weight of self-doubt.
