Have you ever questioned how to develop confidence when you have nothing to be confident about? Well if you're reading this and you probably have. If this is the case then you need to really pay attention to this page. Like you, I have felt this for years. Only until I knew all the things I'm about to tell you, my self confidence was completely shot.

Why you suffer from low self confidence

One of the biggest reasons why we have low self confidence is due to how we measure our own self worth. By comparing ourselves to others we make ourselves feel bad. For one reason or another we think that if we were more like other people, then we would feel more confident. The one thing you have to realize is that this isn't the case. We can't just wait around for things to change so we can finally feel proud of ourselves for something. By simply waiting around we actually avoid accomplish anything but waiting.

How to start developing self confidence when you have none

The best way we can start developing self confidence is to just do something. You can do anything, it doesn't matter. If what you do doesn't stick, you can always try something else. Just make sure that you keep doing something. While you're doing this, you have to be OK with letting yourself down every once in while. Stop worrying about changing your course.

By doing something, messing up and trying something else, you will realize that it won't matter how many times you have to fail. You will realize that one day you won't fail. You just have to continue to try. The more you try, fail and pick yourself back up, you'll start to realize that you have more going for you than you think you do now. You'll realize exactly how awesome you really are, even if you don't feel like it now.

Seriously, what's the worst that can happen if you fail?

All you have to do is try. Start with something very small and simple. Then move to the next step. Keep trying. If you realize that there's no way you can succeed with one thing, try something else.

Who knows, you day you might even realize that you do have skills that you're good at. It might even be something you had never thought about before. Deep down, you do have skills. You are an awesome person and no matter what you might think, you can do it. Just don't give up.

I promise that if you just keep trying then one day, you will succeed. You will accomplish things. And eventually all of your accomplishments will begin to snowball into bigger and better things.

All you have to do now is something, start somewhere. JUST DO IT.

      That is great advice! When we stop doing, we stop realizing that we are able. When we simply do, it becomes readily evident what we can and cannot do, and we are able to find things that we enjoy and can do on a regular basis. The key to success is simply moving forward.
