Be more direct with your practice.
Simply begin practicing Confidence and Bravery.
An excellent way to do this is to spend time with a confident brave person, observe them, just so you know it is possible. Once you know its possible, then it becomes a tangible goal, stick to it.
I used to be shy and insecure.
Now I am very confident and brave,
It took work,
but thats all it took

If it is confidence with people you are interested in, then you have to do more activities which involve other people. Two activities I can think off the top of my head right away which fit this bill is martial arts and public speaking training. Both involve other people and train you in ways which result in higher confidence.

When you come across something you fear, walk into the fear....face it...
The "fear" is merely an emotion of the mind that is saying that it doesn't know what is coming up or it's projecting a bad outcome or it can't find anyway to make sense of something.
But the mind is no your master, unless you allow the fear emotion to stop you. Fear should stop you from walking off a cliff, but shouldn't stop you from being yourself in regular social situations.
Let's face it, most of us have food, clothing, shelter and security, right? Our bodies have their essential needs.
Most of the rest of our life situations are socially driven. Those are the fears that I'm really talking about.
If your fear makes it feel like the sky will fall if you face the fear and be yourself, in the end you will find out that the sky can't fall. It never falls.
The fear is just an emotion and not reality. It's an indicator not a dictator. What is it indicating? That your mind is projecting something it doesn't like but doesn't mean that the projection is true. It's just a guess. The mind is the world's greatest "guesser" and the worst "knower". Because you don't know, your mind is called into "guess". And just because it guesses "fear" doesn't mean that something bad will happen.
So now you walk into the fearful situation and it goes great!! Now you have a new experience and more than likely you will reflect and say "why was I ever afraid in the first place??" THAT just became your true boost in confidence because the next time you are in the same situation, you will walk into it again with CONFIDENCE that all is well.
You want real confidence? You have to earn it! No mental games, no practicing something except facing your fears...experience them and find out that they are not reality.
