how to build self confidence


Self-confidence is a very essential part to achieve success in life. You will notice this quality in every person who is successful in life. They are successful today because once they believed in themselves and that belief is called self-confidence. So, today we are going to discuss how to build self-confidence.

How To Increase Self-Confidence

Follow Successful People

The very first thing you are supposed to do is, follow successful people. Read about their success story, watch their interviews, read about their struggle stories. There is always a story behind a successful person, no one is born successful. So, reading their story will build confidence in you. If they can, so you can.

Never Be Afraid Of Making Mistakes

Many people are afraid of results and making mistakes and least focus on the process. If you will stay conscious about making mistakes all the time, you will never be able to achieve anything big in life.

You can take the example of Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison failed more than 1000 times before successfully creating the light bulb. Yes, 1000 times!

The greatest mistake a man can ever make is to be afraid of making one.

Elbert Hubbard

Stay With People Who Have A Higher Goal In Life

Your mind changes according to your surrounding, always try to be surrounded by the people who have a goal in life and it will inspire you to do better in life. When you are inspired to do better things in life, your confidence gets higher ultimately.

Visualize Yourself As Confident Person

You become what you think. So, never let negative thoughts cross your mind. Always imagine yourself as a confident person.

Always Dress Nice

Your dress affects the way you feel about yourself. You might have noticed the difference in you. You feel more confident when you dress nicely. So, never wait for any particular moment( Example-

interview, presentation, etc), if you want to feel confident all the time, always dressed up nicely.

Think About Your Past Achievements

At this point of age, everyone has been through something big thing in life. So, whenever you feel like losing confidence think about all the past achievements that you thought you will not be able to do but did it so well. Be it getting good marks or getting appreciated by your boss. It will boost up your confidence instantly.

Do Not Feel Bad For Not Knowing Any Language

In India, many times a person’s capability is judged by the way he speaks English or any particular language which is not the right way to analyze a person’s capabilities.

 If you do proper research, there are many people, even celebrities in India,  who even after not knowing a language properly are successful in their field. I do not want to mention their name here, you can google about it. So, always give your best in your field and forget the rest.

Have The Courage To Be Disliked

People want to be liked by everyone which is not practically possible. Accept the fact that you cannot make everyone happy and that is fine.

Always carry this attitude

Confidence is not “they will like me”, confidence is “I will be fine if they don’t”.


Never Hesitate

I have seen people hesitating to do something or ask something because they feel that people will judge them. Keep this in mind, even if you don’t ask they will judge you anyway. So, there is no point in hesitating in doing what your heart wants to do.

Do Things Frequently That Lower Your Confidence Level

There is a saying that “Practice makes a man perfect.” So, if there is something that brings down your confidence level try to do it again and again until you stop feeling less confident about it. For Example:- If you are confident about talking to strangers people, try to talk to them. That is the only way to raise your confidence.

Plan For Big Events In Advance

If there is something big that you are going to face, or which is not regular for you. So, prepare yourself for the same in advance. Once you will be prepared in advance you will feel more happy and confident about yourself.

Do What You Love

When you do something out of passion, you hardly notice what people have to say about you and your work. You will be too busy doing your work that those comments will hardly matter to you. And doing something out of passion will make you more confident about yourself.

Everyone is a genius. but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

Albert Einstien

Help Others

When you are in a position of helping others you should always help others. Helping others will give you immense pleasure.

Cut Of The Negative And Judgmental People

We all have such people in our life who are too negative and judgmental. Cut them as soon as possible. They have nothing good to offer rather than making you feel bad about yourself. If you cannot cut them off, learn to deal with negative people.

If you care about what other people think, you will always be their prisoners.

Lao Tzu
