Self-Confidence: Arnold

Arnold Mupakati (confidence)

I've had issues with self confidence, fear of rejection, and shyness for the last 25 years. My lack of confidence impacted me a lot and affected every aspect of my life. I was self-conscious around people and I shied away from anything challenging. I felt fearful and got nervous. If someone said hello to me, I tried not to say much. I wasn't taking risks and I just felt bad about myself. There wasn't any focus because my mind was clouded with negative thoughts and bad memories from the past. I hated my childhood experiences and blamed the past for my problems.

I've tried reading self-help and motivational books. I would pick up a book, read it for a few weeks and then put it aside. I might read something inspiring and get fired up, but the fire went out very quickly. I just went back to my old ways and gave up.

I heard about hypnosis when I was watching Oprah and saw that Ben Affleck had quit smoking with hypnosis, so I did a search on yahoo for it. I was a little worried because I've seen way too much TV and I had a misconception of what it was going to be like. I thought that I might be in some kind of trance or I wouldn't know what was going on. I was willing to try it anyway because I was tired of feeling so bad.

I started to notice results after the first session. It was an eye-opener because I started to believe things that I never would have thought about myself. I felt more self control and was better able to deal with day to day situations. I felt more motivated and started working out again.

I feel much more in control now because I don't get nervous around people. At work, I'm more comfortable with myself and I can talk to anybody. I speak more clearly and don't mumble as much.

I have a new life and I just feel great because I'm going in the right direction. I have these tools that are totally different from anything I've ever tried before. I have more energy and feel better about myself. Hypnosis has helped me to replace my bad behaviors with good ones and change my way of thinking. I've shifted my focus to the positive and it's been easy for me.

I would absolutely recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to work on self confidence because Laura is inviting and makes people feel at ease. She's easy to talk to and is also inquisitive. I feel a lot better and it's a relief for me that I can change. It's like a new beginning.
