Thirdly, take a risk and challenge yourself of something that is beyond your comfort zone, if that is done and yield well, you’ve challenged yourself and more confidence comes in. However, if not yield well, the confidence must still be there to improve and press further.

In addition, note your strengths and weaknesses by wearing your confidence, it is known that people praise ones strength and criticize ones weaknesses, but individuals motive toward the weak point matters alo. It is advisable to work on your weak point and encourage your strengths territory.

Moreover, dare to be real and keep at it, Let others see and know you for who you are, your mistakes, insecurities, and all.

Embrace your quirks instead of trying to be like someone else or acting in a way that’s not true to you.

It takes courage and confidence to be real. But the more real we are, the more self-confident we become.
