When your confidence is down, it’s easy to feel alienated from the world. While other girls are taking action and risks and achieving success, you’re stuck in the doldrums because you don’t feel good enough to put yourself out there. This can lead to missed opportunities, unused potential and, worst of all, regret.

Self-confidence is a difficult mistress, but something we should all be grateful for is the fact that it isn’t dished out at birth, with some getting lots of it and others getting only morsels; instead, it is something that anyone can have as much of at anytime – or as little of. Often, the choice is down to YOU.

The truth is that you can have as much self-confidence as the most confident women in the world, from world famous actresses to popular singers and dancers. You just need to know exactly how to pick yourself up when you’re feeling down – and how to build self-confidence. Let’s take a look at exactly how to do this.
