Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and cringed at the image of yourself? If you are guilty of this practice then I would advice you to stop. If you are not happy with yourself, it indicates that you are having no confidence of yourself. If you lack confidence in yourself, then how do you expect others to have confidence in you?

Many people, old or young have insecurities about various things in their lives. It could of their physical appearances, speech, lifestyle, habits, work or even family.

Even at interviews, confidence helps you in clinching that job. Imagine a scenario where two candidates go for the interview where one is confident and assured while the other is a nervous wreck. No prizes for guessing who impresses the interviewer and gets the job.

First of all, you have to understand that confidence can be gained if you try. Of course nobody becomes super confident overnight. It takes time to become confident but it is undeniable that everyone can be confident if they try.

The following are ways where you can help yourself in getting confident

1. To accept & Like yourself

4. Overcome fears
5. Accept Failures

3. Motivate yourself

Whether it is for an interview or for a presentation,...
