1. Stop comparing yourself

Trust me every one had felt inadequate because of others achievements or look. You know there are times when you will compare yourself with some people and you might feel better or superior because you have something special that other don’t and this might increase your confidence but not for long since you will compare yourself with other people with a quality you don’t possess and this will rip away what you gained.

2. Be positive about yourself

You have to appreciate your qualities even the minor one. Unless you start it no one will and do it every day. Congratulate yourself on every victory you made.

The point here is when you refuse a compliment you are saying you are not worth it even if you think you are worth it. This will develop in your subconscious mind and decreases your confidence.


4. Know what you want and ask for help.


Don’t be afraid of NO because the answer is NO if you don’t ask.
