    accomplished in the past, doing this may help you realize how much you’ve actually done and the steps that you

    took.However its important to not think that it will require the same energy as it did in the passed but to use the past

    experiences as a stepping stone to boost your success,knowing fully that you have achieved something previously will

    allow you to express yourself more and also allow you to be bold.Most of the time when you think negatively of 

    outcome before it happens, it will hinder you from putting the effort that you know you can put in because you mindset

    would have already been defeated.So try to be more positive minded in whatever you’re doing, take part in things that

    will increase your level of happiness such as being with people that feel you with positive energy or even playing your

    favorite songs to give that happy vibe.Another thing is that you should distance yourselves from people that give you

    negativity and don’t let them put you down in anyway.

    One of the things that can allow you to change your mentality is to become more fearless.Most of the time when we

    become scared we tend to feel small and start to lose courage,which can cause us to perform slightly less than we

    intendto.The best way to change is to slowly start overcoming your the things that might frighten you, as you being to

    do thisyou will start to build a strong character and this will aid your success as well.Another thing that you can do is

    findsomeone that you can talk about these things with, doing this will allow you to come up with better ways in which

    you can get over your fears providing a long lasting solution.

    is very important not only for you but for others as well.

     

     

    8.Be Your Own Hypeman

     

    Most of the time we usually want to seek approval or moral support from other people on everything that we are about

    to do, but sometimes the most important thing to remember is that the main person that needs to support you is

    you.One way to do this is to always speak good and highly of yourself in whatever you do, be your very own

    cheerleader.Telling yourself things like “I can do it “ or “I will make it” can actually build up your courage,doing this will

    lift your mood as well as set you up for something big to happen in your life. Motivating yourself is very important

    because not everyone will like what you want to do but, hearing some motivational words will make you ready to show

    the world what you are made of.

    Small things can be the most important, so even the smallest of achievement can be a stepping stone in your success.Do

    not normalize these achievements because they might be someone out there that hasn’t even gotten that achievement

    that you might not care about, so be grateful for them and appreciate them for they can play a bigger role in your life

    than you think.

     

     

    10.Having The Correct Posture

    confidence level. This can be explained in a short video below that I found to useful , the video is by Coach Talon.

     

    So giving off the right physical presence is very important when you’re either presenting or public speaking, so its a very

    helpful tip.

     

    11.Learning from Failure

     

    In life mistakes do happen and the only thing that can be done is to learn from them, don’t let the failures you

    experience make you lose confidence but allow them to push you instead.What people tend to forget is that most of

    the people that are successful didn’t actually make it the first time, but they learnt from the mistakes and got better in

    the long run.So try to learn from the wrongs that you’ve done, admit to your mistakes and then change to become

    better.Accepting that you are wrong is a great start if you would want to gain more confidence in yourself.
