Self-confidence is the key to success. Self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confident in others. They face their fears and challenges with courage and determination.
They overcome their insecurities and obstacles with spirit. Self-confident people are always positive. They have that charisma in their personality and determination in their eyes. They are usually satisfied with their life and encourage themselves to strive for bigger and better.

Many times we find that we're unsure of ourselves. We constantly belittle ourselves and find faults in ourselves. We doubt our abilities and skills. We just want to hide ourselves from the world. A little failure breaksus and we start to curse ourselves and our luck for that. Confidence can be a hard thing to build up. Not everyone is born with an inbuilt sense of self-confidence. Sometimes it can be hard to build up confidence because of past failures and experinces.

When it comes to success nothing is more important than self-confidence and belief in onself. If we want to be successful, self belief is more important than intelligence, talent, background or anything else. Self-confidence is the main key. The people who are self-confident live happy and satisfied life. They accept their flaws and try to make themselves better unlike low confident people who cry over little things and are afraid of failure. When we lack self-confidence we discourage our abilities and see ourselves worthless and think that we don't derserve better in life. We lose patience. I myself belittle my abilities and think that I am the most useless girl in this world. This is the lack of self-confidence.

Here are few steps to build self-confidence. Building self-confidence might be a hard and tiring process. We might see ourselves falling apart and nothing seems to work out at first but have patience.

The first step is to have faith in yourself. Believe in yourself and your journey. Don't ever underestimate yourself. Know your worth. List your past acheivements. Even if the acheivements are small. Don't ever judge yourself. We might sometimes think that everybody hates us. But in reality there are a lot of people who loves us for who we are. So stop worrying about this. Talk to your closest friends and let them tell you your qualities.

Take small steps
We look too far and forget that big changes are made with small steps. Do something good everyday. Try to change yourself. Know your potential. Think of something that you are good at. Like painting, cooking, photography etc. And do something little everyday of your interest. Don't let your anxiety and overthinking take you down.

Some days you might feel low and nothing seems to work out. At that point, have patience. Stay rigid and firm. Read some motivational stories of real people and watch motivational videos.

Stay away from negativity
Don't judge yourself and don't let anybody let you down. Stay away from negative people who try to pull you down by criticizing you and try to point out your flaws. Stay away from toxic people.
