Confidence plays a huge role in success. If you project confidence, you can achieve a lot. It is one of the most basic things you need and sometimes it can be really tough too.
Around 1-2 years ago, I must admit, I really lacked in confidence. Now, at age 15, I have boosted my confidence considerably by following some very basic pointers. Earlier I was shy of meeting new people and I used to be very quiet, but that has changed now. Confidence is really a big deal for everyone, especially entrepreneurs.
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else’s eyes. -Sally Field
A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her. -David Brinkley
Just do it! - Taking action and doing your work immediately will cut down on the backlog. Besides that it will reduce your stress levels. And as you know, if you do you’re work and achieve targets on time, people will appreciate and acknowledge, which is a great confidence booster.

Maintain a good posture – The way you carry yourself can make a huge difference. Not just to yourself but others too. People with drooping shoulders and lazy movements show a lack of confidence.
Look into the past – Have a small flashback and remember all your past achievements. Keep in mind all those happy memories and re-live those moments.
Face challenges – Life is a battlefield. Gear yourself up to face big challenges and give your very best and take a plunge at them. Never be afraid, consequences are very temporary but the feeling of overcoming these hurdles can make a big difference.
Speak up – During discussions, the majority of people never speak up as they are afraid of saying something that will be construed as stupid. This fear is a big downfall. By speaking up at least once in each discussion you will project yourself into more limelight and you will improve your confidence.
Think Big – Look at the future, look at the bright side of things. Dream big.
Help others – Make a difference in people’s lives and try and help out as much as you can. Not only will you learn something but your confidence will go up.
One last point, if someone runs you down, keep in mind they are not perfect too.
