Many people are interested in knowing how to have self-confidence, but less people know that self-confidence has a direct connection with your belief. A belief that you possess what it actually takes to accomplish your life or whatever you mind is set to. The higher is your perception and belief about yourself the more likely it is that you’ll succeed. Self-confidence is more of an asset when compared with skills, knowledge and even experience that can set you apart from others in an exclusive way.

Some of the causes of low self-confidence are identified as Fear: If fear is something that stops you to perform in a certain way then only way to succeed is to combat that fear, Guilt: Don’t let the guilt to hold you for any mistake that have been committed by you. Once you shirk this guilt feeling, self-confidence will be felt strengthening, Un-realistic expectations: act of sabotaging yourself would definitely not let you raise self-confidence so always be away from such unrealistic expectations that might convince you of being failure for anything.

People suffering from this glitch of how to build self-confidence attempts to follow some self-confidence exercises which helps them in improving their personality appearance and reach their potential:

• Dressing: The way you dress-up yourself has a great impact on how you interact with people. A well dressed person feels more confident than that of a poorly-dressed.

• Paced walking: people who walk fast, have places to go, people to meet are believed to have more self-confidence.

• Active posture: people showing good and active postures can easily put forth an impression of being self-confident and are traced as empowered and vigilant.

• Make a motivational speech: In order to raise self-confidence, simply think and write about your strengths, achievements and goals and acknowledge it when needed either only for you or in front of others. It will certainly help you to take next step towards success.

• Look for best in others: Rather than backstabbing or gossiping about the people around you, make a habit of praising and acknowledging their efforts. Doing this will help you to bring out the best in yourself thus raising self-confidence.

• Spotlight the contribution and work out: let you thinking go beyond your own wishes and take part in doing what others want you to do for them would result in your praise and acknowledgement thereby increasing your self-confidence.

• Turn deaf ear to what others say: Don’t care for what others think, say or speak about you. Just be concerned about how you speak to them would surely help you getting out of such distress.

• Dedicate time for meditation: Try giving a little portion of day to the mediation and reflection. In such time think about your achievements, abilities and picture yourself as a successful person in whatever situation comes your way.

• Affirm your confidence: Keep on uttering or thinking affirmation comments for your abilities such as yes, I will/can do anything or I am improving with each passing day and etc.
