13 Quotes About Confidence to Help You Grow

Confidence can be a difficult thing to master. Confidence builds confidence and if you’ve recently had a blow to your self-esteem it can shatter your feeling of self worth.  Use these 13 quotes about confidence to build your self image and take on the world once more.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
~ Bernard M. Baruch

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”~ Norman Vincent Peale

“Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.”~Charles Stanley

“A lot of people, when a guy scores a lot of goals, think, ‘He’s a great player’, because a goal is very important, but a great player is a player who can do everything on the field. He can do assists, encourage his colleagues, give them confidence to go forward. It is someone who, when a team does not do well, becomes one of the leaders.”~ Pele

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that… I believe in what I do, and I’ll say it.”
~ John Lennon

“Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.”~Gary Ryan Blair

“And no one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves.”
~ Marianne Williamson

“The older you get, the more you understand how your conscience works. The biggest and only critic lives in your perception of people’s perception of you rather than people’s perception of you.” ~Criss Jami

“Confidence… thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.”~Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Beethoven said that it’s better to hit the wrong note confidently, than hit the right note unconfidently. Never be afraid to be wrong or to embarrass yourself; we are all students in this life, and there is always something more to learn.”~ Mike Norton

“There had been a time when I owned my life and now I felt like I was coming around to myself again. It’s like I’ve finally discovered bones in myself I never knew I had. I discovered that it takes bravery to be one’s self. I now know that the only thing I needed to be afraid of was of not finding my true self and having the courage to be me.”
~ Benilde Little
