1. Be patient with yourself
Not everyone could reach their goals for the first time, indeed most of successful people have tried many times before they succeed. So, if you don’t reach your goals the first time you try, don’t see it as a failure. Keep in mind, whatever the results, you have learned something and you could do better next time. People grow from experience.
2. Be Prepared
You can’t convince yourself if you do not know what you are working on. You must know what you need to know. Prepare yourself with enough knowledge, whether it is for a presentation or even a date!
3. Monitor Your Thinking
How many thoughts you have in a day? Too many and yet research has determined that 80% are negative. I bet you know already that negative thoughts will produce downer days. So, try to keep yourself away from those negative thoughts. Yeah, its kinda impossible, but over time you can do it. Whenever the negative thoughts comes up, you can mentally stop it.
4. Recognise your abilities
Believing in yourself requires you to know yourself. Knowing that you have talent and really taking that in will help you get through almost everything. So now, look for the talent that lies within you.
5. Determination is the key
Life is tough, and the greatest achievement is filled with the greatest reward precisely because they are difficult. In practice the determination, you will eventually develop your abilities. Give yourself a few more time. Do not give up yet.
