building self-confidence

building self-confidenceSelf-confidence is such an important asset that helps you in conquering any fear and in overcoming any difficulties. Moreover, self confident people can achieve any goal in their life with ease.

There is a huge difference between self-confidence and over-confidence. If you are self-confident, you will attract everybody in your surroundings with your charming and humble persona, clear voice and perfect body language. On the other hand, if your shoulders are drooped down, and you stammer and feel agitated while talking, nobody will pay attention towards you.

Self-confident people can motivate most of the people, whether their position is above you or below. Start building your self-confidence today. It is not a matter of a single day, but if you try to improve with full determination, you will surely be successful.


The first thing you need to do is ‘think’.Think about the place and the position you belong in, i.e., things that you have gained or successfully completed in your life. I am sure there are many areas in which you have already excelled.

That can be anything, like- your polite attitude towards others, your performance in your academics or any extra-curricular activity, etc. Thus, you will feel proud of yourself, which may help boost your confidence.

Accept Your Faults:

You may find it strange, but accepting your own faults can help in building self-confidence. Most of the people fear that if the world comes to know about their faults, people might look down upon them. Nobody is totally perfect in the world and the same applies to you. It is better if you admit your faults and try not to repeat the same again. People will respect you even more and you won’t feel scared anymore.

Ambition In Life:

Every one should have a certain ambition in life. It is pointless to be dependent on others for taking every decision in your life like your education, your career, your future.

You should definitely be open to a suggestion but at the end decide your aim yourself. Thus, you can proceed towards your destination with full confidence rather than running behind something, which is not meant for you.

Accept Challenges:

It is good to know your own faults, but does it mean you stop accepting challenges. You should always move ahead and take the risk and overcome any obstacle that comes your way. It is best if you compete with yourself and if you can win this race, confidence will automatically generate in your mind.

Be Optimistic:

Optimism is the best way to conquer your drawbacks. The negative vibes around you which pulls you back are all destroyed because of this single word ‘yes”. This will definitely raise your self-confidence to a new level.

Accept Compliments And Criticism Collectively:

This world is a great place to gain knowledge. Life itself is the biggest teacher who sometimes scolds you for your mistakes and at the same time pats on your back for your achievements. Therefore, you should always accept compliments and criticism wholeheartedly.
