How to build your confidence

People like to be around people who have confidence in themselves. It can be someone who believes in themselves and can show it in various ways. Some of us may feel weak when we see confident people.

The first and foremost thing that comes to our mind is how can we build confidence in others. I don’t want to discourage anyone but sometimes we may think that we cannot do it.

As a coach or a mentor, we need to motivate people to be successful and confident in their lives. If a person is very self-conscious about his/her life then the chances of the individual’s happiness will go down and it won’t be good for his/her life.

Tips to build your confidence and get happy

We are born with confidence but if you are born with less confidence and if you don’t have the feeling of being confident then you need to try some new methods to build your confidence. Here are some of the effective tips to build your confidence.

Build your confidence from the inside

Everyone wants to look confident and show confidence in front of their friends, but no one knows how to do it. If you don’t know how to be confident then you have to build it from the inside.

The first thing that will help you to feel confident is when you develop self-esteem and self-confidence. Try to feel happy and be happy with yourself before thinking about others.

Think before you speak

Confidence is about showing your thoughts and feelings in a better way. Most people don’t know how to express their opinions and what is in their hearts. So, they get negative results and they suffer a lot.

If you don’t express your feelings then you will not get better and your problems will not be solved. The best solution to express your thoughts and feelings is to talk to someone and if you are unable to talk to anyone then you can write them down.

Make your voice strong

People are attracted to voices that are loud, attractive and powerful. If you want to have a powerful voice then you need to practice for a longer time and if you don’t have the time then you can ask your friends to listen and critique your speaking style.

Learn to say ‘No’

If you don’t know how to say ‘no’ then you will get overwhelmed by everything and you will start getting stress and tension. Saying ‘no’ is the best way to keep your stress and tension at a minimum level.

Practice being assertive

Being assertive is one of the best ways to build your confidence. Being assertive means being yourself and not hiding who you are and what you want.

Show confidence in yourself

If you don’t feel like you are worthy of doing something, then try to believe that you are. Many people in the world don’t have confidence in themself.

If you have a negative mindset about your appearance and you can’t think about anything positive, try to change it. Instead of thinking that you are not beautiful or you are ugly, try to think that you are beautiful and you are unique in your way.

If you believe it then you will get what you have always wanted.

Don’t compare

If you think that another person is better than you then you will become jealous and you will lose your confidence. In such cases, you mustn’t compare yourself with other people.

If you are feeling down, then you can share your feelings with your friends or family. They will surely understand you and they will support you.

Do what you like to do

I am not talking about being a model and posing naked in front of cameras and stuff like that. I am talking about the kind of things that make you happy. If you are working for a company and you are working hard and you know that you are doing a great job, try to give yourself a break and do the things that make you happy.

Try to do something that makes you happy and you will get a boost of confidence.


So, these are some of the tips that will help you to build confidence in the people around you. Hope that you will apply these tips to your life and if you found them helpful then keep sharing the links of this post with your friends and family members.
