3. Surround yourself with people who love you:
You have to be careful whom you count on. Be aware of people who try to demotivate you and make you lose your self-confidence. Surround yourself with folks who will always have your back. And whenever you feel low talk to them to regain your confidence and optimism. It doesn't matter whether it's your family or friends or a dog.

4. Face your fear:
If you want to become stronger, you have to face your fear. Conquering fear is an important task in everyone's life. But each person faces fear at different age and some may run away from it instead of facing it and probably live hiding in their cave. So as soon as you face the fear it's better, you appear to appreciate your life and grow into a valuable person in society who is capable of handling anything alone.
Living with fear stops us from taking risks, and if you don’t go out on the branch, you’re never going to get the best fruit. - Sarah Parish

The mirror is your friend who can show your true self. Practicing in front of the mirror can help you boost your self-confidence. This technique is called the mirror technique. All you have to do is stand tall and pride yourself in front of the mirror to practice the things you wanna achieve in the future or some advice to yourself. You can even confide your secrets and burdens to the mirror, don't worry your secrets are safe with it. Practice makes a man/ woman perfect so once you practice this every day like a routine no one can beat you in your game.
Mirror has three purposes, To show you who you are, To show you who you were, To show you who you want to be. - Dan Pearce
6. Focus on yourself:
At the end of the day, it's all about loving yourself. When you start to love yourself others will love you too for who you are. Focus on yourself by starting to live a healthier and happier lifestyle. Once you have a healthy body and mind, you will automatically lead a happy life. Focusing on oneself is an important rule when it comes to building self-confidence. Shedding some love on yourself will help you go a long way.

Don't let the fear and low self-esteem cast you out from who you are and what you can do. Believe in yourself even if you don't succeed it doesn't mean you failed, you just learned a way to succeed. Show the world the new side of you which is confident and cheerful in whatever you choose to do.
Confidence is everything. Confidence is what makes that simple white tee and jeans look good. - Ciara
Have a great day.
