What's the difference between self-confidence and self-esteem? Justin and Mark explore. We discuss how self-esteem involves self-acceptance and intrinsic self-worth, while self-confidence relates to belief in abilities. Self-esteem provides a steady foundation for self-confidence. How to build both? Focus first on self-esteem through serving others, taking eyes off yourself to gain perspective. Developing confidence? Start with esteem.

Today, we discuss the confusing and potentially polarizing world of hypnosis, including the differences between stage and clinical hypnosis used for therapy. Clinical hypnosis can help people process trauma safely by altering mental states. We talk about hypnotism as a "gateway" similar to meditation and controlled breathing for shifting brain patterns. As with most "gateways", the key is using these tools responsibly to help people gain positive shifts in their mental state and self-control.
