People who do not trust in themselves are much more numerous than those whose self-confidence is all right. Low self-confidence means underestimating of one's abilities and influence over their environment, disparaging of eventual successes and emphasizing of what a person can't do and what is no go.

People with insufficient self-confidence continuously compare themselves with others and they consider themselves weaker, less capable, less successful, less love-worthy and simply worse overall. And they do not like themselves for being so.

These attitudes work like a programs in their heads – people act in accordance with them. They preventively avoid many situations for non- trusting in success. T hey approach other situations with the feeling that they will not succeed in them – then they actually do not and if so, it is considered an accident. They are afraid of addressing anyone interesting. They dedicate a huge amount of time to their own selves , but totally in vain – they linger over themselves, they mull over the same doubts round and round and they take a lot of things personally and egocentrically. A personal attack is seen behind any critique; they are easily injured and any refusing is regarded as proof that their poky opinion o f themselves is correct.

We distinguish two types of people with low self-confidence:

Weaklings

 

1. "Weaklings": These are in the majority. People without healthy self-confidence can be recognized quite easily: They get upset even over usual problems, their concentration is bad, they can’ t fall asleep for worry. A typical weakling can neither put his or her foot down nor assert their rights. They behave submissively and do not trust in themselves. A weakling has, however, quite a good chance to improve his or her self-confidence.

 

 

Strongmen: At first sight, strongmen look like self-confident Supermen.2. "Strongmen": At first sight, strongmen look like self-confident Supermen. They can chew others out, they do not hesitate to complain and they act expressively and sovereignly. They can behave violently, though, they are narcissistic, humiliate others and ironize, but never allow other people to make fun of them. The last is a very reliable sign of "strongmen". Such a person has at once a tiny and very hard shell, but inside, there is jelly – he or she is weak, trembling, insecure, devoured by worries, fearing that his or her real self will be disclosed. Their, as though sovereign, behaviour serves as a means of how to keep other people at arm's length, because strongmen are afraid of them. A strongman does not have such good prospects as a weakling, for unlike a weakling, a strongman never admits that he or she has a problem.

From your responses:

PsyChance is a cool idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you that you exist and that you help!!!

They are really great programs for an affordable price. Thank you.

I have visited different therapists but I had a feeling they went after their own interests and they didn't understand me. I was really helped only here as I had to become a psychologist myself. So thank you.

Thanks for the possibility of completing this program.

a lot of bang for a buck

You know, I didn’t have time or money to go to the doctor’s... and I really think your program has saved me. Thank you so much.

thanks for a smashing course

Thousands of pieces of information (perhaps unfortunately) are available on the internet but only your wonderful and simple (I mean user friendly) program motivated me to take the first steps to really do something and to improve. Thank you!

Thanks, your program definitely helped me.

Thank you for your work and help. PsyChance programs will always be one of my main  resources.
