Confidence is not only built from successes, but also from learning from failures.
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Don't let people drive you crazy when you know it's in walking distance.
You can't be confident when you are willing to stay within your own comfort zone. Confidence is built by pushing way beyond what you think you can do.
A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.
Obstacles are seen by those without confidence as total barriers beyond which they cannot move; confident people see obstacles as simply a another challenge that has within a stepping stone for further advancement.
We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies.
Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right.
Confidence is developed by taking risks that challenge your own inner strength not by assuming the character that others want.
Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Before you assume you are being wrongly criticized, examine your own self-confidence.
Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable.
Nobody can force you to become something you are not and likewise, no one can make you confident unless you want it yourself.
I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk.
Edward J. McGrath, Jr
Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.
Peter T. Mcintyre
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.
Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Norman Vincent Peale
You can't be confident if you continue to wear past failures as your coat.
If you are self-confident it shows in your body language, in your face and in the very words that you use.
Lynda Field, Weekend Life Coach
If you're in a state of confidence and positive expectancy, the decisions you make will be quite different than if you're feeling vulnerable and fearful.
