5 Steps for Building Self-Confidence:

1. Concentrate on your strengths rather than on your weaknesses :
Confidence comes from within. You have to concentrate on the positive things about yourself.You have to concentrate on the positive things about yourself.
2. Remind yourself of past successes:
Confidence builds on past success.If you are trying to develop confidence in a new aspect, past success can still be useful in strengthening our confidence.
3.Take risks :
Try doing things that you’ve never tried before. It’s always a little bit of a challenge in doing new things and just the act of accepting these challenges, some little and some big, whether we are successful or not, frequently improves our self-confidence.
4.Use self-talk:
Use self-talk as an opportunity to contradict destructive beliefs. Then, remind yourself to "stop" and replace more realistic assumptions
5.Visualize your future success :
Confidence will increase when we visualize ourselves succeeding.Our minds cannot distinguish the difference between something real and something vividly imagined. So vividly visualize your success. What will it look like and feel like to have succeeded? Who will be with you, what will you be hearing and where will you be? How will you be feeling at that instant? Placing this much vivid detail into your mind increases the likelihood of success, and supports greater confidence!

Apply these steps in your daily life and your confidence will soar!
