Deposit only positive thoughts in your memory bank. In our daily lives most of us face a lot of unpleasant, embarrassing, and discouraging situations but instead of taking them to heart and dwelling on them, we should do what confident people do: not give it another thought. 2. Withdraw only positive thoughts from your memory bank. Only allow your mind to recall the positive thoughts from your memory bank. Simply shut down your mind if you can only think about the negative thing about a situation. 3. Do what is right. Doing the right thing keeps the conscience satisfied and this builds self- confidence. When we do something that we know is wrong, two things happen. We feel guilty and it eats away our confidence and when others find out, they lose confidence in us.
