Confidence can be built. It is for all of us to have, provided we have the courage to reach out and developed it within ourselves. Here are some quotes that can inspire, uplift and encourage you to be the best version of yourself. But to do that you need to have confidence that you can.  You can. I know you can.

“We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”     Marianne Williamson

In this way confidence is not only an internal light, but a source of light for others. This is a place of living in love and abundance rather than fear and scarcity.

“Self-confidence is the most attractive quality a person can have. How can anyone see how great you are if you can’t see it yourself?”    Unknown

This world can batter you about. But you have such beauty and wisdom. You need to share that with those who need your light. Don’t be robbed or rob others. One of my all time favourite quotes is from Eleanor Roosevelt,

“Self-confidence is more of an attitude – where you promise yourself – no matter how difficult a problem life throws at you – you will try as hard as you can to help yourself. You will acknowledge that sometimes, your efforts to help yourself – may not result in success, because often, being properly rewarded, is not in your control.”       Rajendra Persaud.

Life is about what you get, but what you do, what you give of yourself. Sometimes you will be rewarded, sometimes not. Don’t take rewards for granted. Nor should rewards be the driver of your intentions to be the best you can be. Let the desire to be the best version of yourself come from deep within. That ought to be reward enough.

“A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.” Zen Shin

Often we think of a flower as being perfect. But it isn’t. It flourishes, withers, changes, just like us. It fulfills its purpose by revealing its beauty to be shared, just like we ought to be.

“The quickest way to acquire self-confidence is to do exactly what you are afraid to do.”   Anon

“Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses and it is only when you accept everything you are – and aren’t – that you will truly succeed.”     Unknown

We are guilty of eroding our own confidence when we compare ourselves to others. There will always be someone more intelligent, more beautiful, more athletic, more artistic, more musical and on and on. Let go comparing yourself to others and embrace all of who you are. You are amazing just as you are.
