Take yourself out of inferiority complex if you have any. If there is anything which makes you feel ashamed of or unworthy of yourself, mark it out and try to get rid of it. Your inferiority complex will make you feel sad and disheartened. Never think that you are lesser than others in anyway. It is only your feeling that makes you think that you are inferior than others in some way or the other. In reality, the other person may not be even as good as you think of him or her,

Live in the present.

Remember the adage from our Rig Veda: "Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow is only a vision, but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope." So, don't worry about the past. The past has become a history. If you want to create a happy history, spend your today doing something good to the society. Tomorrow is yet to come and your today only is going to become tomorrow. So doing better today only will lead you to wonderful tomorrow. So, never think of bad, always think of doing something good to make others happy and be happy and self-confident yourself.

Live with your courage, conviction and beliefs.

Always remember that none of us perfect in everything. The path of life is full of turns and turbulences. Learn to tread on this difficult road of life with courage and conviction. Have belief in yourself and always say "I shall overcome" and never say "I can't do it, it is beyond my reach". Hope sustains hope. There are insecurities in everyone's life. But they can be only temporary. You can overcome them with your wisdom and hard work. There is no substitute for hard work.

Recognize your hidden talent and try to bring it out.

Recognise your talents and focus on them to develop more of them in you. If your are not good at studies, you must be good in something else, for example, art, drawing, acting, singing, playing, music etc. and so on. Don't consider your deficiency in one field as your failure when you are good in some other field of life. Take pride in what you are, and try to improve upon your capabilities. Give credit to yourself for whatever the success you have achieved in any field. Always freely express your feelings in speech, in writing or even by playing music if you know. Know your strengths and weaknesses. Try to improve the weak traits in your character to give you more strength and to feel more confident about you. Find out things which others are doing and excelling at, and you also want to learn. Spare no chance to learn and try your hand on those activities. Join forums and clubs to learn from others by sharing your thoughts and successes. You will always find some compatible friends of your nature who will be ever willing to help you in your efforts to become a self-confident person. Accept compliments from others gracefully with a polite thank you and a smile on your face.
