Ways to Increase Your Confidence
There are some ways you can use to increase your self-confidence. Some of them you'll need to practice a lot before they start to work. It's like playing the guitar or soccer. They might not work too well the first or second time you try them. But as you do them, you build a deeper confidence in yourself.
Exercise will improve your confidence and your way of looking at life. Plus, being healthy and looking better can also help you feel more confident.
Everyone is a creative(有创造力的) person. Rediscovering your creativity is a good way to improve your confidence in yourself. Creating something is a wonderful but not always easy experience. But when you're done, you not only feel good about yourself. 2
Use your body.
If you start to walk fast you'll soon start to feel nervous. If you start to walk slower you'll soon start to feel more relaxed. To feel more confident, use your body in a more confident way. 3 Learn how confident people around you or on the TV use their bodies.
Compare yourself to yourself.
This will take away a lot of unnecessary pain in your life. 4 Compare yourself to yourself. Improve yourself and see how you grow and become a more successful, more confident and happier person.

B. Take it into the future.
C. Walk, sit, stand and move in a more confident way.
D. Sometimes you will also discover new parts of yourself.
E. Pay attention to yourself, not the other people around you.
When you make a mistake, big or small, cherish(珍惜) it like it's the most valuable thing in the world. Because in some ways, it is.
Most of us feel bad when we make mistakes, beat ourselves up about it, feel like failures, get mad at ourselves.
And that's only natural: most of us have been taught from a young age that mistakes are bad, that we should try to avoid mistakes. We've been blamed when we make mistakes at home, school and work. Maybe not always, but probably enough times to make feeling bad about mistakes an unconscious(无意识的) reaction.
Yet without mistakes, we could not learn or grow. If you think about it that way, mistakes should be cherished and celebrated for being one of the most amazing things in the world: they make learning possible; they make growth and improvement possible.
By trial and error—trying things, making mistakes, and learning from those mistakes—we have figured out how to make electric light, to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, to fly.
Mistakes make walking possible for the smallest toddler, make speech possible, make works of talent possible.
Think about how we learn: we don't just consume information about something and immediately know it or know how to do it. You don't just read about painting, or writing, or computer programming, or baking, or playing the piano, and know how to do them right away. Instead, you get information about something, from reading or from another person or from observing, then you make mistakes and repeat, making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, until you've pretty much learned how to do something. That's how we learn as babies and toddlers, and how we learn as adults. Mistakes are how we learn to do something new—because if you succeed at something, it's probably something you already knew how to do. You haven't really grown much from that success—at most it's the last step on your journey, not the whole journey. Most of the journey was made up of mistakes, if it's a good journey.
So if you value learning, if you value growing and improving, then you should value mistakes. They are amazing things that make a world of brilliance possible.
