What is self-confidence? 

               Self-confidence is the knowledge that you can do something and do it well. 

               Self- confidence comes from firsthand knowledge of the task at hand, knowing your strengths and weaknesses, applying your skills to any situation. 

               Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives.

8 Top Amazing Hacks to boost your Self-confidence

1: a quick fix. 

              There are a few tricks that can give you an immediate confidence boost in the short term. Picture your success when you're beginning a difficult task, something as simple as listening to music with deep bass; it can promote feelings of power. You can even strike a powerful pose or give yourself a pep talk. 

2: belie in your ability to improve. 

             If you're looking for a long-term change, consider the way you think about your abilities and talents. Do you think they are fixed at birth, or that they can be developed, like a muscle? These beliefs matter because they can influence how you act when you're faced with setbacks. 

             If you have a fixed mindset, meaning that you think your talents are locked in place, you might give up, assuming you've discovered something you're not very good at. 

             But if you have a growth mindset and think your abilities can improve, a challenge is an opportunity to learn and grow. Neuroscience supports the growth mindset. 

             The connections in your brain do get stronger and grow with study and practice. It also turns out, on average, people who have a growth mindset are more successful, getting better grades, and doing better in the face of challenges. 

3: practice failure. 

              Face it, you're going to fail sometimes. Everyone does. J.K. Rowling has rejected by twelve different publishers before one picked up "Harry Potter." 

              The Wright Brothers built on history failed attempts at flight, including some of their own, before designing a successful airplane. 

              Studies show that those who fail regularly and keep trying anyway are better equipped to respond to challenges and setbacks constructively. They learn how to try different strategies, ask others for advice, and persevere. 

              So, think of a challenge you want to take on, realize it's not going to be easy, except that you'll make mistakes, and be kind to yourself when you do. Give yourself a pep talk, stand up, and go for it. 

              The excitement you'll feel knowing that whatever the result, you'll have gained greater knowledge and understanding. This is confidence. 

4: Groom yourself, dress nicely. 

              You'd be surprised how much better we feel about ourselves when we are showered when we are wearing an outfit that we feel good in. And I know this seems specific to girls, but guys are the same. 

              If you are clean-shaven, you're wearing a nice outfit, and you're headed in somewhere, and you feel like I am ready to kick some ass. 

              There's something about being dressed nicely, being clean and groomed that makes us feel so much better about ourselves. And that's something that is actually pretty easy to take care of. 

5: Think Positively.

              I talk all the time about having that negative voice and that positive voice, but let's actually do it. We have to kill those negative thoughts. 

              We can't let them live in our lives all the time. And taking notice of how often we're thinking negative things, like "I can't do this. This is terrible. It's never gonna work. Blah, blah, blah." The longer we spend feeling bad about ourselves. So stop it! Notice! Think positive! Be like, "I can. 

              I'm amazing. This is gonna happen because I want it to." And if we can turn around those negative thoughts, and we can squash them, get rid of them, and turn them into positive. 

             We'll not only feel better and like have an air of confidence about ourselves, but we'll also get so much more accomplished. And we'll actually start achieving our goals. 

6: Act Positive. 

             Sometimes the quote that I use a lot is "Fake it 'til you make it." Because oftentimes by volunteering, by getting out and spending time with people who build us up, and being friendly to people. 

             Be generous. Be welcoming to people at the coffee shop. "Oh hi, let me get that door for you. Thank you so much. 

             You're so nice. Oh, that made my day." Being friendly to other people and acting positively can totally turn it around for us. And I even have that experience in my life. 

             If I get up and I'm running late and I go to the coffee shop. And it's not ... like the other day, they're like drip coffee only, uh. I don't like drip coffee. 

             I drove extra to go over here and get this coffee from you, and now you can't make it. And I could have really let myself feel really bad, but instead, I decided to act positively. 

             Open the door for this little lady. "Hi, good morning, good to see you, hope you have a good day." And my day turned around. So if you can't make it, we can fake it.

7: Get prepared. 

             You don't want to go somewhere, to a test or to an interview or meet new people without feeling prepared for it. This can be anything from like me taking my licensing exam. I studied my ass off. 

             I took practice exams. I took practice quizzes. I practiced practice flashcard flashcards so that I felt prepared. Because oftentimes we almost set ourselves up to feel bad. 

             Like we will go into an interview, and we'll stress about it. And we won't even do anything to prepare for it. And then we sit there and they ask us questions. And we don't know what to say. 

             That just recapitulates that negative thinking. And so we'll keep thinking "Ya, see I am a dumb idiot." But you're not. We're not. We just weren't prepared. So whatever it is that you're going to do, even if you're going to a friend's house, and you know you're going to go out that night bring a couple of pairs of clothes that you feel good in. 

              Like I said in number one, dressing nice. You want to prepare for it. You want to make sure you get enough sleep because you're gonna be out late. Maybe, you know, there are things we can do to prepare ourselves for success. 

8: building better self-confidence is setting small goals and achieving them. 

             Now, this doesn't mean get an "A" in science or land that new job. Those are not small goals. Small goals make each one of these things a habit: this week I'm gonna shower and dress nicely 3 days. 

             Then today I'm gonna make sure that I'm friendly to one person. Those are small goals because guess what? When we achieve those small goals we feel even better about ourselves. 

             And we're like "Yeah, yeah, put a check in that box, that thing that I was gonna do this week" So each week I encourage you to set small goals working towards the things that I just mentioned.
