  • Take some time to think about which people in your life really make you feel great. Make a goal to spend more time with people who are supportive and uplifting.

Trust your capabilities

No one in the world knows everything. Everyone is good at some things and not so good at others. If someone criticizes you take it as an opportunity to improve. If someone does better than you see it as an opportunity to learn from them.

Confidence comes not from knowing you know everything, but from knowing you can handle what comes up.

  • Family members who weigh in with their opinions about what you “should” be doing can be desžtructive to your self-confidence.

Practice confidence

Confidence will improve with practice. Do this is when you meet new people. They have no idea who you are, meaning you have an opportunity to show them.

It can be practiced and with that practice you will get better.
