Principle

Be confident in everything you do and say. This will lead them to be confident and make the things you do far more likely to work.

Practice

For the first few times you do something and until you have evidence that it works, then of course you will not be completely certain it will work for you. But think about it: how many times have you succeeded in all kinds of things?

Also in hypnosis, some things just do not work with some subjects, so you just reframe it, utilizing the non-working in some way and move on to something else.

So smile (not grimace) gently and be relaxed when you speak in a clear and confident voice. Keep your body relaxed and steady (not tense and jerky). Act as if things will work and they very likely will.

Discussion

Confidence is catching. If you are confident, then people around you (and particularly your subject) will also have confidence.

If you are not confident, then neither will they be confident and you will create a self-fulfilling prophecy where your methods will either fail or not work as well as they should.

Sometimes we are not confident because we imagine terrible consequences, yet in reality the worst that can happen is usually that there is a slight embarrassment before moving on.
