Increase self-confidence with these 3 steps:
1. Confidence is believing in yourself
Confidence in oneself is faith in your own potential, that you can rely on yourself in any difficult situations. There was a time when you couldn’t walk, read, drive or swim. But you learned, adapted, overcame. If there is something you are unable or struggling with achieving right now, you can overcome that too. To help you to develop a stronger faith in your ability to achieve success, describe 5 examples of things you have achieved. This is to remind yourself that you’re capable.
2. Confidence is resilience. Life is full of struggles. We all get setbacks from time to time whether that is in our business, work, personal or in family life.To remind yourself to continue to be courageous and explore your power to overcome any challenges, practise appreciating your own achievements and keep them in mind. Describe 5 examples of the challenges you have overcome. This will help you to keep the balance and be resilient.

3. Confidence is to recognise your greatness
When we fall, most of us feel guilt and shame. Remember you are not a computer and so you have a right to make a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. A mistake provides you with information you can use to evolve. Even if you did something or said something wrong, stay balanced and evolve through learning. Have confidence in that you have an abundance of good qualities and virtues.
