Self-confidence is an important key to success in any walk of
life. People with self-confidence are noticed more. They achieve
their goals relatively easily. In contrast, people who lack
self-confidence often end up being losers. You too need to build
your self-confidence if you want to do well in life. Here are ten
tips that can help you build that elusive self-confidence:

1. Self-confidence is found in people who have a healthy self-
They know their personal worth, and act accordingly. A good way
to improve your personal worth is to make a list of your
accomplishments every day. You will be surprised to know how many
positive acts you perform every day in life, but which you don't
notice. Once you start looking at this list, your self-confidence
will boom.

2. Be clear about your goals
If need be, break your goals into smaller, more manageable tasks.
Pat yourself every time you achieve a minor goal. It will boost
you're a self-confidence, and help you achieve bigger goals.

3. Find a mentor who can help you reach your goal
Most people, who have done well in life, have a mentor who has
traveled the same road on which they are traveling today. Meet
your mentor regularly, and seek his advice and support as a
routine. You will find that you are learning something valuable
every day.

4. Socialize with people who are positive and supportive, who
like and respect you
Give them the same support and respect that they give you. Avoid
people who are negative and critical of you. Such people erode
your self-confidence. They make you look at your negative self,
and not your positive self. After some time, you get enveloped in
their cynical and negative world-view. Nothing can be more
damaging than that. Dump such friends as soon as you can.

5. Pay attention to how you look
Take pleasure in wearing good clothes and being well groomed. It
makes you feel good. People too look at you differently. Remember
that every human being wants to be found in the company of smart,
intelligent, successful people. You can soon be a centre of
attraction if you radiate a positive, smart look. It can very
easily make the difference between success and failure.

6. Don't be afraid of failures
Take them in your stride and move on. Say to yourself that you
will succeed the next time. Never make the mistake of allowing
your failures to overwhelm you. They will force you into a shell,
and destroy your self-confidence. A better way is to shrug your
failures as something inconsequential, and take on a new
challenge. Of course, you must learn from your mistakes, and be
realistic about your abilities. People who try to over-reach
often fall down. You should not allow that to happen in the name
of self-confidence.

only on your work and on your problems. Divert your attention to

up due to lack of time. Return to those activities again and see
your self-confidence grow.

confidence as you become more skilled in it.
