Pursuing your dreams can be very difficult, you may have prepared to face the hurdles put by the external factors but what will you do when your close ones, friends and family who know your strength and weakness sow a seed of doubt in your mind.
This can be overcome only when you believe in yourself and practice self-confidence.
An article in success.com lists out a few hints that will help you believe in yourself.
* If you want to increase your self-confidence you have to surround yourself with positivity. Create a daily confidence programming habit, accept that you might not be able to change the people but you can make a choice to interact with those who support you.
*Be ready to accept failures and celebrate and learn from the failures of others. Even our most iconic influencers were built upon their conviction to continue after falling short of perfection. Nobody is perfect. If you aren’t willing to fail, you aren’t willing to win.
* Most important of everything is that you should believe in yourself. External support is of no use when you don't support yourself. Master the art of taking to yourself which will help in your progress. Recall your accomplishments, identify your strength, be self-affirmative and encourage yourself.
Though outside support is important it is the personal responsibility that can build confidence. Start believing in yourself and you will be rewarded.
