You may have heard how some people believe in the power of the subconscious mind. It is a fact that quite some people live emotionally crippled adulthoods because they have lived through harrowing childhoods. This is because the memory of being told that they are less than who they are as people has been burned into their memories. This is the power of the subconscious mind, which can either build or destroy a person.
Maybe you are one of these people, too. Maybe you are wondering if there is a solution to your low self-esteem. You can now cease to despair, because the same mechanism that had caused your low self-esteem, is the same mechanism you can harness to rebuild your confidence. Below are the ways you can use to turn around your subconscious mind's power, from self-destructive to self-empowering.
1) Stop berating yourself for normal faults.
When you criticize
yourself for mistakes that everyone does, you are actually deepening
the self-worth wounds that you already have right now; so stop
cursing yourself. You are only human: perfection is out of reach
for everyone. Cut yourself some slack, and be kinder to yourself.
2) Encourage yourself.
Instead of allowing yourself to melt down when things go wrong, stop yourself and try to remember the things you have done that were either right or good. Remember your accomplishments, or the times when you had been a good person. Remember the good character traits that you have.
3) Accept compliments with a "thank you".
Most people do not realize that the best way to harness the power of the subconscious mind and reprogram the self-esteem is to accept positive things said by others. Most people have the tendency to reject compliments; not realizing this would only wound the psyche more. So do yourself a favor, and accept those compliments
