Great resuslt first day, then faded away.. ??!!

Hi, I bought a hypnosis track called Boost selfconfidence. I'm 36, and have had a lot of issues with social anxiety and was diagnosed with avoidant personality disporder.. before my 20's I was very confident and social.. totally opposite as how it turned starting my 20's.

Anyways, first time I listened to the track - before going to sleep - I saw very good results in the following 3-4 days, but then the good effect faded.. I listened to it again the 4th day, and I could feel those self confidence feelings around 50% compared to the first day.. but again the effects faded away..I have continued listening, twice some days, but I dont feel this good effect on my confidence that I felt. I'm guessing that the work is being done at the deeper unconscious levels and that therefore its not possible to feel any effects in the outer personality for now..

I wonder what you giuys think about this..

Is it normal to notice a good/sudden improvement,in the start and then it goes away, and after a period of listening and working of the subconscious the good effects come back and more stable..? Something like a "'extinction burst"', which basically says that when you're trying to remove a behavior, often you will actually see an increase in that behavior before it dies..

I was thinking that maybe I started listening too often, since I've read so many different advices.. like you should listen everything from 3 times a week to 3 times daily..

So please, would appreciate if you guys could share some of your experience, and if you could suggest for me a schedule for listening to the track.. I also have some other 4 that are complimentary (make eye contact, self esteem, )..

It is normal to get an initial feeling of accomplishment anytime a new goal is established. It is normal, similar to when people buy a new piece of exercise equipment or purchase a gym membership.

The purchase makes people feel as if they are making progress. People use the new purchase once or twice, then recognition sets in that deliberate effort is required to achieve results. The equipment then gathers dust as do hypnosis tapes.

Deliberate effort means not just listening, but taking the step of deliberate practice, getting out and making eye contact, shaking hands, giving a public speech, etc. Listening isn’t enough. Listening without repetitive, deliberate practice has the same psychological impact as that new piece of exercise equipment.

It is very normal.

Hi, thanks for reply. I'm not sure what f your advice apply to my situation because I can understand the analogy with starting something new, that motivation you have in the start.. But thing is that when I first listened to the track it was not looking for any self confidence but just to relax and fall asleep.. And it took me the next 3 days to connect between the changes I was feeling with my first listening.. Cause before that I was just amazed and disappointed didn't know what the reason might be. So, I think that whatever effect that was present in the start was at an unconscious level, and not a conscious as would be when you start training or something similar.

The thing about deliberate efforts, yes, I go out and try to be as social as possible. I have done it for many years but haven't had so much long-lasting positive effects.

Thanks so much for your advice
