Does it depend on the person. Is it easy for you to gain? is it hard for you to gain?
I can't understand why someone can tell a person to gain confidence like it's an easy thing to do.

Fake it till you make it.
Even if you feel uncomfortable and unhappy in a situation it's better to pretend you're happy and having a good time. Because eventually you *will* be happy and having a good time. Then you'll have good and positive experiences to look back on and doing things and being confident will get easier. media.giphy.com/media/nwyqBwP65XCAU/giphy.gif3

No, like most anything worthwhile is going to require work, now that being said, it is true that some people have a certain degree of "confidence" to start out with. I qualify this as "confidence" because sometimes it is really a false sense of self worth, now is this all bad? No, but it is important to note that there is a difference between confidence born of coddling (a parent telling their child they are great at everything) to be sure the former is a bit of an exaggeration, because clearly the child cannot be good at everything, however this is how that false sense of confidence is established. No where I'm going with that is the sort of confidence that comes from working hard taking your "lumps" as it were and knowing that your knowledge and consequent confidence has been earned as opposed to it being just given to you.
With all of this in mind, the falsely confident child (over confident) can learn to replace his over confidence with genuine earned and respected confidence, but he or she for that matter is going to have to do the work required to earn that level of confidence.
To be sure there are many other elements that go into what makes a person confident, but I have to restrict my thoughts to 2500 mere words, and there is nothing worse than having to stop the explanation of an idea in mid thought because you ran out of words. Just saying. ;-)1
