- Don't compare yourself with other people. It is a wasteful pursuit and you could be doing something better with your time and energy. Know what you, personally, want and expect from yourself, and focus on attaining those things. The things that you want and expect from yourself don't have anything to do with how you measure up to others.
- Consider attending leadership classes. Learn to take control of things. If you are in school, then consider running for a social position, such as a president of a club. The ability to lead others and respond to others' behavior under your leadership will help to bring you self confidence.
- Listen to your inner monologue—your inner voice. In situations where you believe you lack confidence, realize that your inner voice is telling you negative things. You need to retrain that inner voice to be positive in those situations. If you need help, find someone who can help you do that.
- Speak positively at all times. When you hear yourself saying something negative about yourself, instantly replace it with a positive comment.
- You have to reprogram your subconscious by repeatedly telling it how confident you are, it will believe you in time.
- Know where you are going and follow through.
- Don't feel shy when talking to a stranger. Smile while you talk, as that will make you feel confident.
- No matter how you look, feel good about yourself from within. This attitude will make you confident.
- Walk 20% faster than your normal pace, stand and walk with your spine straight and hold your chin high. These physical posture will force you to think positive and be confident.
- These wonderful tips can be practiced if you pay attention to your innate faculties. Thus boost your kindness, consideration, empathy, exuberance, generosity, curiosity, concern, forgiveness, convictions by suitable actions. This is possible through caring for your true self [Cf: Superliving: Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar]
