If you are looking to take a big leap to become a more confident person, these 10 goals can help you achieve it regardless of your profession or personal life.

Moreover, it is best to remind yourself of past successes to keep yourself engaged, stay positive and self-assured.

Whenever you cross paths with a colleague, strike up a conversation. You will realize that many people are friendly, and there’s nothing to fear about. The more you make the effort to reach out, the easier it’s for you to engage with people.

Search online for what kind of popular activities that can be played with a group of people and organize it among your colleagues for team-building.
