We all have days in which we don’t feel so good about ourselves when self-doubt takes over our thoughts and prevents us from being confident in who we are. However, it’s important to remember that inner confidence and self-love is the key to success in life.
Whenever I find myself feeling demotivated and in self-doubt, I re-read my favorite quotes that I have put up on my vision board. I also have a card packet with my favorite quotes, each morning I pick up a new one and stick it on my wall. This keeps me motivated throughout the day. Here are some of my top 15 Quotes about self-love and confidence
Quotes about self-confidence
Confidence is not ‘they will like me. Confidence is ‘I’ll be fine if they don’t’.– Christina Grimme
This quote resonates deeply with me, all my life I tried to do things to impress others and be liked. We all spend time comparing ourselves to others, hoping they will like the way we look, etc. This quote made me realize that confidence is about being comfortable in your own shoes and not worrying about what other people think
”It’s not the lack of ability or opportunity that holds you back; it is only a lack of confidence in yourself.” — Richard Monckton Milnes
This is another quote I can completely relate to. We have the ability and different opportunities in life to succeed. It is our own fears and lack of belief in ourselves which stops us. We lack confidence and keep doubting our worth, which often stops us from taking action.
The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you.” – William Jennings Bryan
In order to develop our confidence, we need to be willing to face our fears and step out of our comfort zones. Fear of the unknown stops us from taking action, but when we start to face our fears we start to believe in our abilities and we recognize that we are capable.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Remember we have complete control over the way we feel. Others will perhaps always try to make us feel bad. Why give them the power to do that. It is only when we doubt ourselves and allow our inner critic to take over is when we feel inferior to others. Therefore this goes to highlight the importance of self-confidence
Quotes about self-Love
“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”Robert Morley
We often confuse happiness with how much money we have, with landing our dream jobs or getting married. In reality, happiness has to do a lot with loving yourself. Therefore when you start truly loving yourself is when you feel most happy.
“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.” — Robert Holden.
This quote makes me think of the saying “treat others how you would like to be treated”. We all need to look at our relationships and how we treat ourselves because that is what we will expect from other people. If we don’t love who we are and appreciate ourselves, then it’s hard for us to expect others to love and appreciate us.
“If you are still looking for that one person who will change your life, take a look in the mirror.” Roman Price
This quote again illustrates the importance of loving yourself. Most of us look for an external person or a romantic partner who will come change our lives. It is important to remember that we are the ones who can change ourselves. We have to truly start appreciating what we have to be able to do anything else
“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.” — Diane Von Furstenberg
This quote is very intriguing. If you go to think about it “who do we spend the most time with”? Ourselves.
At the end of the day, you are your own company. It is important to learn to love yourself and be comfortable in your own company. Therefore, if you are spending time with yourself, you might as well enjoy it!
