Make some auto suggestions
Even when you are not confident or sure of yourself think that you are very confident. For an instance, if you are to introducing a speaker for the first time in your life and you’re feeling nervous of public speaking, believe that you will do it in a perfect way. And another example, a child gets the 1st rank in class, and the other child gets 10th rank. Then the parents scold the child and tell him, “you are a useless boy, you don’t have a brain that is why you cannot come first”. When the child hears this again and again, gradually he starts believing them. As a result he suffers from inferiority complex that may lead to self-defeat.
Implementing these suggestions will be of great help. Apart from this, you can also give yourself an auto suggestion like: ‘I have full self-confidence and I will introduce the speaker in the best possible way”.
Think of you past success
Try and remember your achievements as frequently as you can. As for example, how you did well in your examinations or how you managed a very critical situation with great ease.
Whenever a negative thought arises cancel it with a positive thought . As for example, if you think, you will not be able to give a speech properly, immediately cancel it with positive thought, by thinking that you will be able to give the speech in the best possible way.
Do Some Day Dreaming
Create some mental picture of yourself as a very successful person. Gradually from your conscious mind it will sweep in to your subconscious mind and before you release it, you wil be a totally a different person.
Create your own style
Don’t copy anybody. By coping a person you will get a feeling that the person whom you copy is superior and as a result you will suffer from inferiority complex.
Find out the origin
Get a competent counselor to help you understand why you do what you do. Learn the origin of your inferiority complex and self-doubt feelings and overcome these setbacks.
