- Note down your awesome side
When stormy days engulf you and you feel you are not worthy of anything, nobody likes you and you are a failure, take a deep breath. Get your ass on the floor with a paper and a pen and note down whatever you are good at. Write down everything that makes you who you are. Are you good at making others laugh? Running? Playing chess? Writing about your amazing side on a paper will serve not as a mere thought but as a concrete evidence about all things great about you.
- Consider everybody as your friend
Control your mind or it will control you. The mind is a powerful tool and can be one heck of a master if you let it be. Feed positive thoughts in your mind and it will make you see things positively. Before you enter a room, don’t make up your mind that people are not worth talking to, they have low opinions of you and you will never meet someone genius. Tell your mind that whoever is in the room you are going to enter is your friend and you are going to have a fun time with them. Plant these seeds of happiness so your mind processes it and gives you equal output.

If you befriend people who are judgemental and have negative, hateful opinion about everything and everyone, you will also become one of those criticizers. Surround yourself with positive people. Find traits in people that you would want to imbibe in yourself and get close to them. A man is known by the company he keeps so if your company consists of nice confident pals, you will automatically be confident. Read to know how to make great friends!
