    Our weaknesses often take a toll on our confidence. We feel ashamed and insecure because of our weaknesses. Some may even feel unworthy of opportunities they get just because they fear their own weaknesses. Recognize and work on your weaknesses to boost your self confidence.

    Front Row

    People often tend to sit in any row but the front one. It gradually kills their self confidence and at time they become escapists. To regain your lost self confidence start sitting in the front row at every place including offices, schools, conferences and debates. Be willing you participate as much as you can.

    Walk Fast

    Your walk tells a lot about your state of mind. People who have surrendered to the challenges in life walk slow and often look uninterested. While on the other hand confident people walk fast and look energized. Walking faster will let your brain and body simulate the feeling of self-confidence.
