Here are some tips to help you.
Build your confidence by stepping outside of your comfort zone in small increments.
And if you tell yourself, you're capable, you will indulge behaviors that will enable you to be.
Make a habit of saying yes, even if it means increasing your workload because that's how you will develop your skills.
Network with everybody even those in other departments, that way you'll feel more at home, which will aid your confidence, and they'll be there to help you when you need them.
Clear precise goals help us to take clear precise actions towards them.
Write down your goals in a specific way with date set for achieving them by.
That way you'll know what you need to do, when you need to do it, so it becomes part of your routine like brushing your teeth.

So for example, I'll check my emails between 11 and 11:30 AM and 4 and 4:30 PM Monday to Friday.
Break large goals down into small stepping-stones so that you don't feel overwhelmed.
We can achieve anything if we just break the job down into small manageable tasks.
Research shows the brain builds new neural pathways when we do something for the first time and this applies whether we do it in real life or simply imagine our self doing it.
Neural pathways give the brain a blueprint to follow if you like.
So, for example, you can rehearse in your mind doing a presentation for your boss and your colleagues and doing it brilliantly from start to end, so that when it comes to the real occasion, it's as though you've already done it before.
This will help you to be confident and succeed more.
Confident people achieve more, and remember, by using your brain to your advantage, you can increase your confidence with purposeful planning, preparation, and practice.
