If you want to be confident and successful, you must get dressed with confidence before you get out of bed in the morning.

Real confidence has nothing to do with who you are and what you have. Real confidence comes when you decide you will be confident before your feet hit the floor each morning. Confidence is an attitude, a state of being. One of the best things about confidence is that you can create confidence all on your own. There is no special recipe or secret ingredient for creating confidence. It literally can be a simple matter of deciding to be confident. When you wake up each day, simply tell yourself that you are confident.

I mean that literally.  When you wake up each day, state your name and state that you are a confident person. For example:

I  am Janeane Davis and I am confident.

As you go through your day,  each time you start to feel your confidence starting to take a hit, repeat the line. Each time you are about to encounter a situation when you need to feel confident and self-assured repeat the sentence. As you are preparing to do things that would normally make you feel nervous and uneasy repeat the sentence.
