How I Use Binaural Beats to Skyrocket My Confidence

The other day I was watching the hit US TV Show Boardwalk Empire when one of the characters said the phrase to himself in the mirror: “Every day in every way I am getting better and better”, just before going into a sales pitch. I've definitely heard that exact phrase and phrases similar to it so my interest was sparked and I wanted to find out where it originated from. After a quick search I found it was by a French psychologist named Émile Coué, who developed the Couéism application, or the Coué method as it’s also known.

After further reading, I learnt that his work around 100 years ago is the basis for much of the confidence building techniques around today. On the market there are various binaural beats recordings which contain auto suggestions, where all you have to do is listen, or repeat the affirmations in your head as you hear them. Those are all fine, but there are some drawbacks. Firstly, you can quickly get bored of them, so you need a whole load of recordings, which can get expensive. Also, it’s very passive. You’re just listening or repeating something, and it’s debatable whether that’s actually of much use at all.

The binaural beat recordings we sell don’t contain affirmations, but they can be an excellent tool for building confidence. Listening to them relaxes you deeply, and learning something is much easier when we are in a relaxed state of mind and body. They make you feel good, reduce anxiety and increase focus. With increased focus and in a relaxed state of mind, self-esteem can improve steadily with continued use. Also, just because they don’t contain affirmations doesn’t mean you can’t work on improving your confidence whilst listening to them, if you know even a little about how confidence is built then you can increase it significantly. Here’s how…

Acceptance

Spend time allowing your mind to explore accepting yourself and your situation. If we don’t accept ourselves as we are there is a conflict which damages confidence. While in a deeply relaxed state listening to a recording think about something you don’t accept about yourself, something that has been bothering you recently, and try to cultivate the feeling that you accept it as it is even though you still want to change it and make it better (you might discover you don’t want to change it after all). If your quite stressed you might find it difficult to accept anything, in which case you could at least try to accept the fact that you are finding it difficult to accept anything, and that accepting it would make sense. Accepting small things can snowball, you’ll become more and more content with who you are, and before you know it you could be so at peace nothing will ever cause you damaging stress anymore.

I’ll always ask myself the question: “if I was 5% more self-accepting what would I do differently?”

Asking this question and providing an answer brings awareness to behaviour that could be improved. There’s nothing you can do about it while listening to the recording, so keep that in mind, but know that by exploring what you could do differently with regards to self-acceptance will help bring more consciousness when you are tested in the future.

Gratitude

After acceptance I like to move onto gratitude. I think of all the things in my life I’m grateful for, if ever it’s difficult to get started I always begin with my health, my senses, my family & friends. There’s always something to be grateful for, how about the fact that you’re not starving and out in the cold? Gratitude increases confidence massively because it makes us feel good, and when you feel good you are freer to carry out tasks in a relaxed state.

As with acceptance, I’ll ask myself a question such as: “if I was a little more grateful I would…”

Forward thinking

It’s always good to have something to look forward to, as long as it is not to the extent that our minds are always of in the future somewhere and never in the present. Spending time looking forward to something when in a relaxed state listening to soothing binaural beats helps to make me feel less bothered about the small things and more excited about the various endeavours I’ll get to do. For example, looking forward to learning German will help me improve faster because my confidence will be greater as a result of being excited about it, rather than approaching it with worry and self-doubt.

Visualizing

I like to finish by doing some visualizing. I imagine myself successfully doing something that I am currently learning, such as playing tennis, or I’ll even imagine myself sitting at my desk confidently working. Visualizing while listening to binaural beats is a very powerful tool for building confidence, it is well know that playing something out in your mind makes you better at it in real life, and the more relaxed you are when you visualize, the more you’ll get out of it.



Acceptance, gratitude, forward thinking and visualizing are 4 great tools I use to greatly improve my confidence in my ability to achieve the goals I have set for myself. There are many more things you can do while listening to our recordings to improve your ability, or become more at peace with who you are, you just need to get creative.
