CONFIDENCE LIES IN  EACH AND EVERY SMALL TASK  WHICH LETS ME OVERCOME MY FEARS - Janhavi Gupta (Age 17)
Confidence is a very complex concept to describe. Confidence cannot be bought or borrowed from somewhere… We need to build it up in ourselves. The source of inspiration to boost confidence is different for different people. But, one can develop it with time and, of course, with hope and attitude of never giving up.
Initially, I had fear of travelling. But, in order to overcome my fear, I tried pushing myself for it and, now, I have gained enough confidence to travel across Mumbai alone…
That moment, when I realize, that I have overcome my fear, I feel full of confidence… and, I feel very happy, too. Going for college camps, living away from parents and not being dependent on others make me confident…
When I get appreciated, motivated and inspired by others… it makes me confident…
I am afraid of Maths. So, whenever I get the correct answer, it excites me and it …

CONFIDENCE IS ALL ABOUT THE ACTIONS YOU TAKE NOT THE POSTURES YOU STRIKE
- Sandeep Jayaswal (Articulate professional/Travel and sports enthusiast/Mentor)
Belief in self… the trust in my abilities, that I am capable of doing something, is confidence to me. As a topping, knowledge, being positive, preparedness, favorite dress, power, trust and success adds to my confidence in whatever I do. I would like to share my experiences at various junctures of my life depicting the reasons for my confidence.
SPEAKING YOUR MIND When I was young, the most perplexing question was: “Why do I get frightened asking a question to my teacher while a few others don’t?” I got frightened, because, I did not want people looking at me. And I just didn't want to bring too much attention on myself. Was it lack of confidence? For years, I observed, that, questions asked by others were not always wise. That was when I realized, that speaking your mind was confidence... 

When you ask a question, either…

YOUR OUTER APPEARANCE GIVES YOU THE INNER CONFIDENCE
- Dr. Alfa Lokhande (Business Management teaching professional)

In life, many things make you confident. Your appearance – how you look from outside  - is one of them.
Your outer appearance gives you the inner confidence to face the world outside. It boosts you to deliver an impressive presentation. Selection of precise apparels and accessories motivates you and enhances your self-esteem. You should not get scared or feel shy to show your personality through your accessories. In addition to this, you should present a very positive demeanor.
Let me share an incident…
Being a Management faculty and a research enthusiast, I, once, participated at a research conference to present a research paper in one of the reputed Business Schools. I was dressed in a formal sari and had carried all the necessary gadgets required for the presentation. It was an embarrassing moment when I realized at the venue, that I was the youngest am…

MY CONFIDENCE COMES FROM MY INTENSE FAITH IN THE UNIVERSE Austin Coutinho Former Sr. Manager (CRM), RCF; cricketer; sports administrator; cricket, football and mental toughness coach; author, sports writer and caricaturist
My confidence comes from my intense faith in the universe. I try and be good to others, and therefore believe that the universe will not allow bad things to happen to me.
Do I have self-doubts? Almost every moment of my being! That is the reason I put more than a hundred percent effort into everything that I undertake. And when I succeed, that boosts my confidence further.
I have been a scatter-brain: from graduating in science and law to post graduation in journalism, marketing, advertising, and lastly, public relations. It’s been a journey of discovering new things on a daily basis. I played cricket to banish my childhood asthma, but ended up in the Mumbai Ranji squad. I took up football coaching to help my company perform better and was asked to le…

SEEING THE UNDERDOG PERFORM IN LIFE IS WHAT MAKES ME CONFIDENT
-Vishal Daryani (Age 17)

Among many other things, seeing the underdog perform in life is what makes me confident. The one, who, despite all the odds against him/her, pushes back and excels unexpectedly, is what gives me motivation.
After all, as the saying goes "Hope is the fuel for progress." And those, who possess this fuel, are my inspiration. Like…
A timid creature like a spider, which, despite falling countless times from a tree, doesn't give up and keeps on trying until he succeeds… The disabled, who aren't discouraged by the challenges they have to face every day... Yes, I get my inspiration from them.
In conclusion, what makes me confident are people, who, when their chips are down, instead of saying "Why me?" choose to say "Try me!"
