Self-trust is the first secret of success. Source: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Self respect underpins confidence. Learn to love and respect yourself and your confidence will soar. Get out of the habit of criticizing yourself if you make a mistake. Most people do this and believe that it is harmless but your sub-conscious mind is recording all of this and the more sincere you are with self criticism the more it will dent your confidence.

People worry too much about what others think of them. This is heightened if negative comments are received from those considered to be in authority or you have high respect for them.

Self confidence requires courage. The best way to overcome your fears is to meet them head on and do whatever it is you fear. Irrational fear holds most people back from achieving what they want in life. Fear of the unknown, fear of success, fear of failure, fear of what others will think – these all manifest in people and stop them in their tracks. Be brave and your courage will reward you.

Don’t be a perfectionist and afraid of making mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes; this is human. Learn from mistakes and move on. It is better to have done something and made a mistake than not to have done something through fear of being wrong.
