Self-confidence is the understanding to trust our own judgment and abilities which make us value ourselves. Self-confidence plays a vital role in our lives. Self-confident people are more successful in the future than people with less confidence. Self-confidence can be improved by setting achieving goals. The aim of this study is to create awareness on confidence levels among college students. The study consists of questions administered to 115 participants through an online survey planet link. The study participants were college students of age group 18 – 25 years. Self-confidence influences the mood and behaviors of students. Many people have positive vibes but they lack self-confidence. Among the 100 students, 80% of the students were overconfident and 92.2% of them said that self-confidence increased their self-esteem. People who lack self-confidence gain confidence level by their role models or by the people who have already achieved their dreams. They also gain confidence levels with the help of teachers and parents due to their continuous care and motivation. We can achieve self-confidence by affirming ourselves. Seminars, workshops on motivation, time management may be conducted in schools and colleges to boost the confidence level of students. Increase in confidence level will make the students to achieve higher positions in the society.
