1

Make a List of Your plus Points

Start by making a list of your plus points. Yes, you do have them, so don't be modest! If you find it a challenge, imagine that you were writing about a friend, or that a friend was writing about you. You've got a lot of great qualities, so remind yourself exactly what they are - and keep reminding yourself.

2

Think of What You Have Already Achieved

You might feel that you haven't really achieved much to date, or think more about the things that you haven't achieved. But instead of being so down on yourself, think of what you have already achieved. Remind yourself of your successes, and you'll realise that you've already done quite a lot; this will make you feel more confident.

3

Remember That Everyone Has Self-Doubts

Everyone has doubt about themselves; even the highest achievers aren't full of confidence all the time. So it's perfectly understandable that you would feel this way. It doesn't make you inferior to anyone else, it makes you normal. So if you feel those nagging doubts creeping in, acknowledge them but don't let them destroy your confidence.

Getting Things Wrong Helps You to Get Things Right

Our confidence can often take a hit when we get things wrong. But I'm a firm believer that even messing up can be useful. Getting things wrong can help us to get things right next time; making mistakes is how we learn. So don't let mistakes or bad experiences shake your confidence - you can still turn them into something positive.

5

Venture outside Your Comfort Zone - Even if It's Just a Little

Another way to boost your confidence is to step outside your comfort zone. Some people find they have to take big leaps; others prefer baby steps. Do whatever is right for you. By pushing yourself just that little bit, you find that you can survive things you thought you wouldn't be able to cope with - and that will give you the confidence to do the same thing again.

6

Accept a Compliment

It's a very British thing to try to negate a compliment; we feel embarrassed about agreeing with someone that we look good or have done well. And we're probably not alone. If you tend to do yourself down when someone compliments you, stop it - they mean what they say, so accept it graciously and be happy that they wanted to say something nice.

7

Change Your Style or Have a Makeover

One confidence boost that shouldn't be underrated is to have a makeover. Whether it's getting some help from a personal shopper (department stores often provide this as a free service), finding some really flattering makeup, or having a fab new haircut, changing your appearance can make you feel fantastic.

So start giving your confidence a well-deserved boost with these tips!
