Now when we know how it is important to be a self-confident person, let me suggest you some tips to become self-confident.
1) DON’T CREATE YOURSELF ICONS
It is very popular to become a fan of someone famous. Being a fan is inevitable in teenage because at this time a person has a very low self-estimation. Usually when people grow up their self-estimation increases and they give up making themselves different icons, idols, and heroes. Television, Hollywood, and other entertainment agencies embellish singers, actors, sportsmen and other celebrities. These industries want you to overestimate celebrities. As long as you are a fan of somebody, the industry has its financial income. This is the main strategy of show business. You should not overestimate anyone. Those people whom you see on TV are just like you and you may be even more attractive and beautiful than famous people. Make some researches on Google and try to find photos of celebrities when they have no makeup. You will see that some of them are extremely ugly and disgusting. You see them on TV only when they have tons of makeup on their faces. The only difference between you and celebrities is that you are not famous. You may be more talented and gifted than famous people and you should be conscious of this fact. When you consider about the reality, you will find out that there is no a single reason for you to adore and be a fan of someone. When you do so, your self-estimation decreases and you are not able to be a self-confident person.
In order to become self-confident, you need to get rid of your idols, icons, heroes and all celebrities whom you adore.
2) DISCOVER YOUR ADVANTAGES
Usually, people tend to compare themselves with others. We compare our height, beauty, financial status, talents, the attractiveness of our bodies.

The major problem is that usually people’s self-estimation and self-confidence is based on how other people estimate and value them. This is a common mistake. Let us analyze this situation. Should you ever care what people think about you? Some of your closest people may tell you the truth and they will be honest. One of these people is your mother and even she may be insincere with you on different occasions. So what is your relationship with other people? Do you trust your girlfriends? People are envious and they are happy when you have problems. Don’t hope that someone will try to make you feel self-confident and happy. You will find that most of the people will try to do the opposite thing.
