When faced with a big challenge where potential failure seems to lurk at every corner,maybe you've heard this advice before:"Be more confident."
面对一项艰难的挑战,面临各种失败的可能性,也许你听过这么一则建议:要对自己有信心!

And most likely, this is what you think when you hear it:"If only it were that simple."But what is confidence?
但你脑中往往会浮现这个念头:要是有这么简单就好了!自信到底是什么?

Take the belief that you are valuable, worthwhile, and capable,also known as self-esteem,add in the optimism that comes when you are certain of your abilities,and then empowered by these,act courageously to face a challenge head-on.
相信自己的价值和能力,也就是培养自尊心,能肯定自己,心态自然比较乐观,心中充满正面力量,便能勇于迎向挑战

This is confidence.It turns thoughts into action.So where does confidence even come from?There are several factors that impact confidence.
这就是自信,它提供实现理想的动力,那么自信从哪里来呢?影响自信的因素很多

One: what you're born with, such as your genes,
首先是先天的因素

which will impact things like the balance of neurochemicals in your brain.
像是基因会左右大脑神经化学物质的平衡

Two: how you're treated.
其次是他人对待你的方式

This includes the social pressures of your environment.
像是生活中的同侪压力

And three: the part you have control over,
第三个因素则是你自己

the choices you make,
你所做的各种决定

the risks you take,
选择承担的风险

and how you think about and respond to challenges and setbacks.
以及如何面对挑战与挫折

It isn't possible to completely untangle these three factors,
这些因素的关系密不可分

but the personal choices we make certainly play a major role
不过个人的决定

in confidence development.
在自信的发展中扮演关键角色

So, by keeping in mind a few practical tips,
只要记住以下几个实用的秘诀

we do actually have the power to cultivate our own confidence.
就能为自己建立自信心

Tip 1: a quick fix.

There are a few tricks that can give you an immediate confidence boost in the short term.
善用小技巧让自己在短时间内 自信心倍增

Picture your success when you're beginning a difficult task,
先想象成功的样子再开始进行困难的任务

something as simple as listening to music with deep bass;
或者听听重低音音乐

it can promote feelings of power.
如此一来可以提升正面能量

You can even strike a powerful pose or give yourself a pep talk.
也可以摆出胜利的姿势或为自己加油打气

Tip two: believe in your ability to improve.
秘诀二:相信自己会进步

If you're looking for a long-term change,
如果你追求的不只是一时的改变

consider the way you think about your abilities and talents.
不妨想一想自己对才能的看法

Do you think they are fixed at birth,
能力是受先天因素主宰?

or that they can be developed, like a muscle?
还是像肌肉一样可以锻炼?

These beliefs matter because they can influence how you act,
这些想法很重要

when you're faced with setbacks.
