1. Deceive till you believe
The first step to achieving anything is believing. Even if you do not feel quite as confident, you can trick or rather train your mind into believing that you are confident and that you can and you will do it. Repeat the words ‘I am confident. I can do this.’ to yourself, over and over again. Since your subconscious mind cannot really differentiate between true and fake inputs, you will gradually feel more confident about the task at hand. Basically, fake it till you make it.
