In a crowd, and in a presentation, what helps me pull through is that “I don’t know these people”. That’s something I tell myself to make it easier. That’s a secret.
To gain confidence is not as simple, especially for a from-childhood-timid person, or from a person with insecurities. It takes time, and patience.
When someone simply tells you to be more confident, most of the time, it doesn’t really do a lot to help you out. If you begin thinking that you would love for it to be that easy, then you’re gonna wanna check out some of these great tips on how to be more confident!
Before we get into it, you must first realize your self-worth, and that you are more than capable of doing difficult tasks. Realize when you’re conquering something and feel good about your self-esteem. That is where real confidence comes from.
There are ways to boost your confidence on the spot.
• At the start of a tough task, it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, visualizing yourself completing the task successfully, and thinking about how it would feel, is a great confidence booster.

• The second tip is to realize that you are always capable of improving.
When you get hit with a setback, as yourself the question: Am I capable of changing the course of this situation by improving? If you answer no, it means you need to change your thinking to be in a constant state of growth.
You’ll be looking at tough tasks as chances to develop your skill further and grow, rather than accept that you can’t do it and move on to something else.
• You must practice failure as well as success.
This tip sounds a little counterintuitive, but it’s super effective. No matter what, you will fail at some points, but knowing that feeling can go two ways. It can either get you down and completely unmotivated – or it can inspire you to keep on pushing and making improvements.
• You’ll gain confidence when something does work. It shows your persistence and hard work really do work!
The next time you’re feeling unsure, keep some of these tips handy. Giving yourself a small pep talk every now and then can remind you that you’re capable of anything that you put your mind to.
Even if it doesn’t work the first time, or even the first 10 times, staying persistent and confident and looking for new strategies will make you victorious in the end.
