Even if you experienced failure and unhappiness in your life, there certainly are a few achievements.
These need not be great achievements, but quite simple ones, such as getting good grades at school or college, promotion at work, getting along well with your neighbors, getting your driving license, or learning to swim.
Thinking about those achievements makes you realize that you have experienced success in your life, and not all is failure.
This would make you feel better about yourself and about your life, and improve your self-esteem.
If you keep thinking about failure, you unconsciously expect and anticipate it, and might eventually attract it to you. This would further spoil your sense of self-confidence.
You should replace this negative movie in your mind with a movie about success. See yourself in your mind, where you really want to be, living the life you really want.
If you keep watching a movie of success in your mind, you will eventually attract success. This process would build up your self-confidence.
Take another step toward building your self-confidence and write down a list of your achievements and success, and at look at this list often.
Set a time each day to think about your talents and abilities, and find ways to develop and use them. Do not say that you have no talents and skills. Everyone has some. You just need to find them.
Lack of self-confidence goes hand in hand with lack of willpower and self-discipline.
When you strengthen your willpower and self-discipline, your self-confidence would grow strong too.
Stronger willpower and self-discipline means more assertiveness, more self-esteem and more confidence.
Set small, simple goals that are within your reach, and go achieve them. This will greatly boost your confidence.
I am talking about really small goals, such as cleaning and arranging your wardrobe or drawers, inviting friends to your house, starting to learn swimming, taking a short walk, or talking with someone whom you don’t like.
These small acts will make you feel better about yourself and increase your self-confidence.
Instead of focusing on negative events and expecting the worse, make the effort to focus on the positive and expect positive results.This might not be easy if your mindset has always been negative.
However, with persistence, you can change your mental habits and build a positive attitude. You will find plenty of information about positive thinking at this website.
It would help, if you strive to remove from your mind and from your vocabulary all negative thoughts and words, and refrain from using them in your conversation.
Remove any negative commentary running in your mind. Be firm, and do not allow negative comments about you and about your life to run in your mind.
You need to be more aware of what is going on in your mind and not allow negative self-talk to go on in your mind.
What kind of clothes makes you feel better? What colors make you feel more confident?
Choose the clothes and colors you like, and the ones that make you feel more confident.
Keep your back straight while walking and while sitting.
Act confidently, even if you are faking it. In time, acting confidently will become a habit.
When talking, speak up and clearly and don’t be afraid to express your opinions.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
