400+ Confidence Quotes That Will Boost Your Self Confidence

Confidence is one of the keys to success. A lack of it affects our emotional and mental well-being – it might transform us into pessimists, we’ll have trouble dealing with failure, we’ll experience social anxiety and automatically be more stressed. If we should define self-confidence in a few words, we can refer to it as the ability to trust oneself and one’s capabilities of reaching a goal. The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgment, ability, power, etc. Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal.

I have personally hand-picked these 400+ quotes about self-confidence. I hope the following quotes on self-confidence can inspire you a little to start developing your self-confidence, so you can create the happiness and success you wish for.

Let’s dive right in.

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. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. 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

Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source.

“Sometimes it is not the world in general but a man’s own parish which causes him to wince and quail. A newspaper gets on his track and misreports him. His sermons are garbled and his actions are misjudged, and the mangled son of thunder goes about bleeding at every pore. A man too thin-skinned to stand newspaper criticism is not a fit man to lead the Lord’s army. A newspaper is frequently the most unprincipled and merciless of antagonists… but a minister who is wise will never enter into a controversy with a newspaper. To be beaten with a few stinging sentences is not so painful as to be beaten with a Roman scourge… If a minister cannot sing after being trounced by the most merciless reporter who ever poured bad blood into ink, he should get out of the pulpit and seek a position where thin skin is not a hindrance to duty. Or the anonymous coward instead of attacking him in a newspaper may stab him through the mail. Two or three anonymous letters will cause some men to swell up as though they had been bitten by tarantulas… The criticism may not be written but spoken. It may float through the atmosphere in the shape of poisonous rumours.” – Charles Edward Jefferson
