Our Favourite Confidence Quotes
For anyone who wishes to keep themselves in a prime mental mood, the words of
others can be powerful inspiration.
It always helps when we have words of wisdom that we can recall over the years.
When the going gets tough or we can’t find a solution/answer to our problems, it
always helps to have a quote. After all, quotes that inspire us can give us confidence,
and confidence is absolutely key to any success.
Without having belief in your skills or your talents, how will you ever become the
person that you wish to be?
To help make sure you can truly believe in yourself and feel completely at home with
who you are, here are some great confidence quotes that you can learn from.
Each of these can – and should – be stored in your mental library. They can all be
used at times of negativity or struggle to remind yourself of the power of confidence!
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” - Coco Chanel
This is a quote that lets us know how important it is to be unique. People don’t want
to work with those who offer generic services and banal solutions. There is no reason
to be limited in your potential or your future success because by going in a different
direction you allow yourself to innovate and be different.
“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” - Dr. Benjamin Spock
It’s very easy to convince ourselves that we know far less than we think. When we
look at our own successes and talents it’s easy to be negative when we compare
ourselves to the greats. But when you take away that veneer of self-deprecation, it’s
usually quite easy to see the vast quality – and quantity – of your own skills when you
take a less negative look.
“Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” - Christopher Robin
One of the easiest things that you can do in your life is look down on yourself. We always find it easy to see ourselves as less than we are, through fear of “overconfidence”. Well, this is an equally dangerous route to take; things are never quite as bad as you may make out!
“Confidence… thrives on honesty, on honour, on the sacredness of obligations,
on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot
live.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt
This quote is an especially powerful one; we cannot be confident when we don’t trust
ourselves. If you spend all of your time being dishonest and making up false
scenarios, then you’ll never feel truly confident as you are never being yourself.
This is the challenge and the balancing act of life – and many of us find it very hard to
adjust to. However, it’s by no means impossible.
Keep the quotes above as an indicator of what can change in your life when you
look to imbue yourself with more confidence.
Driving Success For Women in Business
Although it’s easy to look at all the negativity in this world, sometimes just concentrating on the positives can be a great way to change our mindsets and opinions. After all, the last decade or so has seen a pretty wholesale change in the way that successful business women have been defined.
For any women who wishes to be successful in the world of business, it’s no longer a pipe dream or a silly idea. In fact, these days are long gone! You will find, quite easily, that driving success for women in business is no longer the impossibility it once seemed.
We asked some leading business women for their advice. TS Krupa had this to say “You don’t need to tear down other women in order to be successful. Instead, I would advise that you surround yourself with women who might be positions you want to strive to be in or other leadership roles and get to know them. You don’t have to ask them for favours or assume they will get you your next job but have lunch with them, listen to their stories what works for them or what hasn’t worked and use that to start building your own platform. The biggest thing in business is building your own professional portfolio and how you set yourself apart from everyone else. By developing these skills early in your career you will be a step ahead.”
Sandra Yeow, author of the upcoming book ‘Obstinacy Power’ adds “My advice for a fellow female who wants to be successful is to have determination and persevere on when meeting road blocks. Often the solution is just there when you are about to give up.”
Society is changing – and changing for the better in every possible sense. Now, you can quite easily explore the best ways to enjoy a more fruitful business career. The best route to finding the path to your own success, though, is to come through a coaching program.

The Power of Precedent
Let’s take one very quick example – Karen Brady. Karen works at West Ham United Football Club, in one of the most male-dominated industries on the planet. Using her business nous and her experience, Karen has helped West Ham move from their old stadium, the Boleyn Ground, to a new Olympic Stadium.
She used her expertise to help get West Ham a deal that is, to say the least, beneficial to the club. However, this had never have been seen in football before and wouldn’t have become a reality if it was not for the work of other successful business women to help break down these barriers.
