Self-Confidence: Gary

Gary Manouelian
Pflugerville, TX

I've had problems with low self-esteem for as long as I can remember and it's been a struggle that I've had to deal with for the last forty years. I was unmotivated and down all the time because I was constantly focused on the negative. I always thought about what I didn't have and it affected me in a negative way. I felt like I was blocked and stuck in a depressed state of mind and I didn't have a lot of belief in myself.

I've done some therapy before and also tried guided imagery. In therapy, I talked about my problems and got feedback, but I knew that until I addressed this in my subconscious mind it wasn't going to do anything. I bought subliminal message CDs to try and improve my outlook. I think that they might have helped a little because I was getting positive affirmations under music, but it wasn't enough for me.

I really needed to make a change and realized that I had to start investigating things to find a solution for my problem. I found a business card for A New Day Hypnosis at Barnes and Noble and decided to schedule an appointment. Since starting, I've noticed that I feel a lot more positive. I'm more confident and optimistic and I'm much happier when I wake up in the morning. When I have a job interview, I notice that I'm less stressed out about it. I focus on the positive and feel more grateful about what I have. My girlfriend commented that I seem more positive and more confident. I've also noticed that I don't have tension headaches any more and I'm sleeping a lot better in general.

The best thing for me about this process has been getting out of the depressed state that I was trapped in. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because it's made an impact on my life. I feel more optimistic pretty much all the time and I'm confident that I will be able to beat this negativity and stay positive. The first step to getting better is recognizing that you need help and I'm really glad that I've taken that step and improved myself.
