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.
