One of the most important thing that keeps people from chasing their dreams is the lack of self-confidence. 

The important question that everyone tries to answer is that how can they be able to overcome fear. We all know that it is extremely important to have self-confidence but a lot of people seem to have a struggle with it.

It is also an integral part of a personality as many people are likely to be persuaded from people who can speak clearly and concisely and who know how to carry themselves and appear confident in front of others, hold their head high and doesn’t hesitate from accepting that they don’t know something. Here, we are going to discuss some prominent ways to improve your morale and self-confidence to overcome obstacles.

Frist Step: Changing the self-perception

One of the important factors that affect our self-confidence is our self-perception in our mind. It is more important than we actually realize. We all have our mental perception which, actually, defines how we deal with people. If you think that you really lack in dealing with a lot of people, you just need to change your perception of your own self-image as that’s one of the biggest hurdles in boosting self-confidence. You can use your mental photo-shopping skills to create a better perception of yourself in your eyes. Then, try to figure out why you feel this way and try your best to change the perception.

Second Step: Increase your competence Level

One other important factor to boost self-confidence is by increasing your competence. You can increase your competence by studying, learning new skills, perform new tasks or doing a task again and again until you get really perfect at it. Furthermore, if you want to become good at something, you should not try to tackle every task at once. Try to start small and gradually start taking in more tasks and get better at it. In this way, you won’t be feeling a lack of confidence in your work and interactions.

Third Step: Learn from your favourite TV shows and movies

You can also get better by learning from your favorite TV shows and movies. You create a bond with your favourite characters in a movie or a show from which your personality resonates and you can also learn by watching motivational and instructional videos. I started watching and learning from TV shows and movies on my mediacom internet services and Cable TV.

Fourth Step: Learn from your favourite speaker

The major improvement in self-confidence can come from speaking assertively. If you have a favourite speaker, try to observe and learn how she or he delivers a speech. Try to speak with confidence and try not to use fillers when having a conversation. Try to adopt an assertive but not aggressive way of speaking to boost your self-confidence. People tend to listen to you more attentively if they see a leader radiate from within you.
