Hey guys, I have big confidence problems.
I had trouble telling a guitarist his strings were bowing his neck.
I don't speak up, when i really should. and I cant take any criticism. even though I am quite critical of myself.
I have been to Counseling ( need to ring up and book another appointment)
butr nothing seem to help. when it comes to Guitar tech stuff, Ww2, and pc/gaming/ hardware (amateur) I can talk for hours. anything else. well. waste of time.

any ideas?

Stop giving a shit about anything, anyone's opinions, live life for yourself, not others.

Take your pants off and look in a full length mirror and work up an erection. Look at your boner and remind yourself that there are men somewhere in the world who have a smaller **** than you.

Works for me every time.

This.

Or you could just go totally crazy and berzerk once a day. Works even better if you apply the quote above

Being confident takes practice. I used to think I was unable to do anything, and now I'm a confident (perhaps slightly arrogant) young man. Just tell yourself you can do it.

When you're home alone, just walk around with your dick dangling everywhere. Look at it, realize there are women in the world who want you and no one else. Call a girl, ask her for sex, if she says no, immediately hang up. After you're convinced you've got huge man bits, imagine yourself walking around naked all the time.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

Just do it. It's that easy.

In my experience it only takes one moment when you stand up for yourself. Say no to your boss, tell someone they're wrong. Just do it. It gets easier.

1. Get a big bag of M&M's.

2. Stand in front of a busy Walmart.

3. Throw the M&M's into the air and catch them in your mouth.

4. Continue until you don't give a damn if people are laughing at you.

OT: Just don't care what people think of you. Don't listen to someone when they say you're 'weird' or something similar.

Ironically, if you take our advise then you wouldn't have actually taken our advise, which means you would, but. PARADOX!

Try to be drunk at all times. Being drunk makes me more confident.

One of my friends says I'm weird but she says it in an honest way and says that when a person tells you the truth it's because they care.

I'm not seriously promoting drinking all the time, but incidentally, I actually asked out, charmed and first boned my current girlfriend in the midst of a drinking binge, I also decided to apply to my current job, which I love, drunk (but it is at a bar).

I actually also advocate the alcohol suggestion. I know when I'm drunk I'm so much better looking, stronger and smarter that I naturally gain even more confidence.

Right but you can't be drunk all the time. (inb4 Irish/Scottish users say you can)

If you need alcohol to overcome certain situations you're risking opening yourself up to a mental addiction of needing alcohol for all kinds of stressful situations. In the end that's all it is guys. You're stressing out over situations that need confidence.

Get a job which forces you to speak to people. I was never really that shy but having to constantly speak to the general public and come across as confident (worked as a salesman) really did me wonders.

It's all about practise. Don't make too much eye contact because it's awkward, but equally make enough so that you don't seem like you're easily startled and nervous. Making polite chit chat is actually really hard when you've got nothing in common, so it's all about asking very general questions and hoping to hit on something to chat about.

If you act confident, you will become confident.
#38
Get interested in other things? I actually spend a lot of time reading stuff on the internet, whether it's wiki stuff (yes i know, i'm well aware of the way wiki works) or other random stuff. Like really, I'll read like anything, mostly science stuff, history. I'm weird like that, but I've found I'm actually able to relate more to certain conversations, especially with older people. Just sayin'

But overall, it seems to be a confidence thing for you? So, I don't know, just don't let people get to you, don't let them push you down. No matter what they say. Honestly 90% of the time it's not worth arguing, I just tend to just smirk and say ''ok''. If you're losing confidence because people step on you, you need to just get out of the way so they can walk their way into a wall, and if they keep trying to step on you, then step on them. You got feet too.

I dunno, I find that confidence is often linked with pride. I recommend that you think about, or find something that you are good at. What have you done that you can be proud of, that you'd be happy to share with others or perhaps even instruct? If nothing, then I suggest you really find something to be good at, to be prideful, and therefore to be confident of. Anything other than that is false confidence, IMHO.

To me, you have to have a reason to be confident. Whether it's just confidence in your own leadership or social ability, it's still a reason.
My God, it's full of stars!
