How to Quickly Gain Confidence
Few people are as confident as they would like to be. Yet self-confidence is very important because it shows in everything we do.
The good news is, the way you think of yourself is only a premise. It’s simply an idea in your mind that you’ve built your entire personality on. And you can change that idea any time you want.
Thinking does make it so
Remember, the subconscious mind makes no distinction between what’s real and what is imagined. It works with the material we feed it through our thoughts. It readily translates any thought into reality—whether it’s driven by fear or courage.
In other words, you are what you think you are. When you think you’re important, others think you are important too. Because how you think determines how you act. And how you act determines how others react to you.

Do you see anybody slouching in Greek sculpture? No, the bodies go upward.
Your spine should reach up and so should your head. You must always be conscious of aspiring upward. That’s true even when you sit down. If you let your whole body sink down when you sit, you’re revealing a lack of confidence.
The same is true for your voice. To be confident, you can’t have a voice that mumbles. Speak up and speak clearly.
When you start looking and acting like the person you want to become, your new attitude will not only talk to you, it will talk to others. As you begin acting differently, you will quickly earn more respect and attention from everyone around you.
Experience builds confidence
