9 Potent Confidence Building Steps
Step 1. Get A Grip of Your Fears
The first part of or your self confidence building program should b to analyse what your current fears and anxieties are? Where they come from? How they manifest in your life? What they prevent you fro doing?
Step 2. Act As If

Step 3. Communicate The New You
let your family and close friends know about the new decision you have made to face your fears and start acting confident, let them know how this feels to you and any difficulties you face.
Step 4. Self Confidence Plan
Write down all the areas you would like to feel confident in – then write down how you feel when you imagine yourself in those areas feeling supremely confident. Create a self confidence map and timeline by adding times and dates for you to achieve something you’re afraid or nervous of. Tick off on the confident map when you have done them.
Step 5. Daily Gratitude List
Every night write a fresh new list of everything you have got to be grateful for, include as much as possible from arms, legs, eyes, clothes, food, bed, friends and so on. Once you have done your gratitude list read over it and count your blessing, each morning read your list that you wrote down the night before.
Step 6. Positive Self Talk

Lavish yourself with regular compliments about who you are and never ever berate or talk low of yourself, ether to others or to yourself.

Start looking for little ways to contribute to any situation you are in, the school class, the work place, at home or with friends. Always look to see what you can give to any situation. By contributing and giving something you will receive a boost of self esteem which all starts to add up. Watch you don’t over commit though, give generously but don’t sell yourself out so you have nothing left for you.
Step 9. Look Good
Start to put effort into you by taking care of the way you look, use the best clothes you have, dress to kill, walk tall and proud (even if you don’t feel it), compliment other people on their looks and abilities, start exercising and eating well
