Self-confidence is a learned behavior.  We are NOT born self-confident.  Practice in DOING! One of the hallmarks of confidence is being sure about your abilities and that those abilities will ensure a positive outcome.
If the player looks to build confidence, then we must first discover the reasons why he hasn't any self confidence. If you then read these positive statements, which are not some out of the air affirmations but your actual notes, then you will feel a great deal of self confidence which will represent your inner strength.
There are lots of ways to improve your self-confidence over the long-term – but sometimes you need an instant boost.
Most of us have a critical inner voice that tells us we’re stupid, not good enough, that we’re too fat, thin, loud, quiet… Being able to change that inner voice is key to feeling self-confident on the inside, which will help you project your confidence to the world. Whatever the situation that’s causing you a crisis of self-confidence, you can help yourself immeasurably by holding yourself to your own standards alone. If you believe in a higher power, whether God, or another spiritual force, it can be a real boost to self-confidence to say a silent prayer. Keep your self-confidence up by taking gradual steps forwards, rather than freezing when faced with what seems like a giant leap. Sometimes people just drag their confidence downhill because they are always repeating negative thoughts to themselves and our thoughts define our reality.
My confidence tip is to maintain a Universal Perspective, remember how small we all are and how fleeting our lives are. Confidence, I agree about the smile, in Chinese the character for confidence and faith are the same.


Confident people have a strong self-esteem with a realistic respect for themselves and their good attributes. If the player has done a good job – practicing hard and with 100% effort, has developed good sound technique, understands the game well and plays a tactically smart game and he thinks that all that is nothing or not very good, than he will not be confident about himself.
The last reason for not being really self confident about himself is the foundation of self confidence – self esteem.
When you give this sort of hand shake, the interviewer may think that you are self confident. You can’t walk into an important work meeting, (or a class at college or a room full of strangers at a party) whilst frantically re-reading a self-help manual, or making a last-minute phone call to your life-coach. You don’t just smile because you are happy and confident – you can smile to make yourself feel better. Give them your smile; you’ll almost certainly get one back, and being smiled at is a great self-confidence boost. Brushing your hair, giving your face a good wash, retouching your makeup, straightening your collar, checking you’ve not got a bit of parsley stuck between your teeth … all of these can make the difference between feeling confident in your physical appearance and feeling anxious about an imagined flaw.
By changing our inner voice and speak to ourselves in a more positive way, it will definitely boost our self confidence. That brings up all of the feelings of success and confidence which at least put me in a positive space. This may at first feel intimidating but once you get past the ego and accept this, you will be able to rise above the Battle of the Egos out there and smile at it all (because it is all so, so silly) and this will give you immeasurable self-confidence.
I used to think that by speaking fast, you will picture urself as if you have command over what your are talking and shows your confidence.


By doing so you reinforce positive behaviors, acknowledging your accomplishments building your confidence along the way. When persistence is coupled with confidence, your goals seem more attainable improving the likelihood of success.
Don’t worry that people will think you’re too overweight, underweight, too feckless, too boring, too frugal, too frivolous … hold yourself to your standards, not some imagined standards belonging to others.
Chances are, you weren’t feeling very self-confident at the time – and you probably felt even worse afterwards. As a corporate trainer, the first the my audience perceived was the image I presented to them…followed by my presentation.
This is the first step to a true and deep feeling of confidence which is based on real facts – results.
If the player thinks about himself that he is no one special, that he has many flaws, he is not really a worthy person, then these feelings and beliefs influence his tennis self confidence too. This is the foundation of his self worth which affects his tennis specific self confidence.
When you will yourself to carry yourself with confidence, even when you aren’t feeling that way, you send signals with your body that failure is not an option. People with low self esteem have difficulty believing that they are unconditionally loved and accepted by their partners.
