Apart from the cliche things like:
- exercise
- eat better
- set yourself realistic goals
(things which everyone knows and talks about... and you can find lots of online articles about these things anyway)

I'd say apart from things like that, telling the truth, builds confidence. No matter how uncomfortable it is sometimes, or also how boring it is. I could write an essay about it but it's late. Nobody I know ever talks about this. People can never develop real self-confidence, when they obscure their own reality behind false impressions, personas, crappy exaggerated stories of otherwise very bland and ordinary every day events, etc. If you're not honest with the people around you about who you are, what your past is, how your day went etc. then you're never even giving them the chance to accept you in the first place, and you're not even giving yourself the same chance either.

Also: not doing things which you disagree with. Not caving to peer pressure, for example, like if you don't like smoking, don't smoke just to impress your peers. Don't pretend to agree with people who you don't agree with. Don't do things which you have no conviction for, or which someone else is pushing you into. Every time you start something with a lack of conviction, you probably will struggle finishing it... and might even fail altogether and only because you ran out of energy and enthusiasm which you never had in the first place. That doesn't build confidence.

On the other hand, take meaningful risks and don't be afraid to fail either. Most things in life are a bit of a gamble, because you never know for certain what the outcome will be. That shouldn't stop you from trying, provided it is something you really want.

Confidence doesn't come from thin air. It takes a lot of time to build confidence. It's okay to not be confident, and I'll admit, I'm not a confident person at all. I know how it feels to have low self esteem and a lack of confidence. Building confidence doesn't take a day or two either, it's something you build gradually overtime. There must be a reason(s) you aren't confident, if you can list them to yourself and work on them, maybe you will find yourself being confident one day. Sometimes the things you aren't confident in are things you can't easily overcome, therefore it has to be flaws you have to accept. Everyone has their own pace to work on building confidence, so don't bash yourself if you take a longer time than others.

You need to change your mindset to actually believing that you are the "best" person in the room.

When you learn to be yourself and actually understand that you ARE the "best" person in the room and become actually confused as to why other people dont feel the same way about you...Then you will have become a confident person.

An even better method is to pay an artist to build a 20ft marble naked statue of yourself with a sculpted six pack and a bald eagle on your shoulder.

You are either a troll or crap at giving advice. You were literally encouraging op to have an ego telling him to be the best person in the room. No that's egotistical
