How to Build up Confidence

 Life is an open road for a man who believes in himself. Tennyson assures us, “Self-knowledge, reverence and self-control lead to sovereign power”. There are some who fail in life, and are dispirited due to lack of confidence. Here are 4 ways that will help us to gain the confidence we need:

  1. Deal with your inferiority complex
  2. Make life systematic
  3. Cultivate a natural relationship with people
  4. Cultivate warmth ( generosity ) in your personality.
  1. Deal with your inferiority complex.

Inferiority is a humiliating disbelief in yourself. It is not an inherited trait, but it is created in you. It blocks your growing personality.  The cause of your inferiority complex can be an overbearing parent or guardian, siblings, friends or some humiliating experience / physical defects.

Due to this inferiority complex, your life is broken and your powers are blocked. The result is immaturity and lack of courage. At the same time, you are trying to compensate for this with superior dreams, ideas and ambitions quite beyond the scope of your possibilities. Here you are a baby unable to walk, but greedy to capture the moon. It is a battle between your inferiority complex and the superior ambitions.  The result is failure and mental torture…. How can we find success in this battle ?

Let us listen to the word of God, “ Take heart, get up, Jesus is calling you” (Mk. 10: 49). “ Take courage,it is I, Do not be afraid” (Mt.14:27).
