11 proven ways to gain unstoppable confidence



#1 - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Those who know are ultimately much more confident in any arena than those shrouded in ignorance. Use your spare time to read up on the things that interest you, on the things that you are curious about, and build up a solid base of knowledge and critical thinking. The more you know, the more sure of yourself you will be in any situation.



#2 - EXPERIENCE

Uncertainty is the biggest drain on your self-confidence. Succumbing to doubt ensures you will never believe in yourself. The more often you do something, the more certain you become. With certainty comes confidence.



#3 - CARE-FREE ATTITUDE

Try to walk through your day with as easy and care-free of an attitude as you can muster, because someone who is it ease with him or herself is someone who is confident. Build unstoppable confidence by not getting hung up on the petty issues and minor irritations that help wear you down.



#4 - HONEST SELF-ASSESSMENT

Take stock of yourself. Brainstorm for a bit and compose a list of your good qualities and bad, the things you excel at and the things you need to improve upon, and once you have a clear picture of yourself much of the uncertainty that breeds doubt will wash away.



#5 - ANALYZE

Take the time to properly think through every problem, and the confidence in your skills will grow.



#6 - BE THOROUGH

Try to be as complete and thorough at every task you attempt. Completing tasks builds confidence in your ability to always see projects through to their proper conclusion.



#7 - IDENTIFY YOUR LIMITS, AND EXCEED THEM

Once you have assessed yourself, make a list of goals you wish to accomplish, and get to work. You now know your true limits, so the only thing left to do is push beyond them and set your sights on new frontiers.



#8 - BE OPEN TO HELPING OTHERS

Don't close yourself off to friends, acquaintances and coworkers. The more you put yourself out there in business and social situations, the more quickly you will build confidence in your ability to navigate these sometimes tricky waters.



#9 - COMPOSE YOURSELF

Dress well, groom yourself, compose your identity as a person who is well put together, and you will feel confident when meeting new people and doing new things.



#10 - BE DECISIVE

While it is okay to take time to analyze and think situations through, the time comes when you must be decisive and act. Decisive people are confident; not confident people are decisive.



#11 BE COMPLETE

Know yourself fully, wash away your own doubts about yourself, your identity and your capabilities, and present every aspect of yourself in every situation and you will have no reason to doubt your confidence. Become your full, real self. A lot of confidence building techniques simply do not work. I've tried everything out there and studied confident people to see what makes them who they are.

Hi
Appreciate the relevant and useful sharing that can benefit a large number of readers of the post. While each point is important, in my view Point no.4 HONEST SELF-ASSESSMENT and Point No. 10 BE DECISIVE hold the key to being a winner.
Honest Self Assessment will enable us to appreciate our own uniqueness, our strengths and weaknesses. This will enable us to set our goals appropriately so that we have enough to reach out for and yet not be so ambitions that we end up frustrated.
Decisiveness enables us to proceed ahead even if occasionally we do stumble we are still making progress and moving ahead. Those who are able to master the art of being decisive are the ones who end up as leaders for they lead the way for others to follow.
