    in whatever you’re doing, take part in things that will increase your level of happiness such as being with

    people that feel you with positive energy or even playing your favorite songs to give that happy

    vibe.Another thing is that you should distance yourselves from people that give you negativity and don’t

    let them put you down in anyway.

    perform slightly less than we intendto.The best way to change is to slowly start overcoming your the

    things that might frighten you, as you being to do thisyou will start to build a strong character and this will

    aid your success as well.Another thing that you can do is find someone that you can talk about these

    things with, doing this will allow you to come up with better ways in which you can get over your fears

    we are about to do, but sometimes the most important thing to remember is that the main person that

    needs to support you is you.One way to do this is to always speak good and highly of yourself in whatever

    you do, be your very own cheerleader.Telling yourself things like “I can do it “ or “I will make it” can

    actually build up your courage,doing this will lift your mood as well as set you up for something big to

    happen in your life. Motivating yourself is very important because not everyone will like what you want to

    do but, hearing some motivational words will make you  ready to show the world what you are made of.

    Small things can be the most important, so even the smallest of achievement can be a stepping stone in

    your success.Do not normalize these achievements because they might be someone out there that hasn’t

    even gotten that achievement that you might not care about, so be grateful for them and appreciate them

    for they can play a bigger role in your life than you think.

    So giving off the right physical presence is very important when you’re either presenting or public

    speaking, so its a very helpful tip.

     

    11.Learning from Failure

     

    In life mistakes do happen and the only thing that can be done is to learn from them, don’t let the failures

    you experience make you lose confidence but allow them to push you instead.What people tend to forget

    is that most of the people that are successful didn’t actually make it the first time, but they learnt from the

    mistakes and got better in the long run.So try to learn from the wrongs that you’ve done, admit to your

    mistakes and then change to become better.Accepting that you are wrong is a great start if you would

    want to gain more confidence in yourself.
