This collection of quotes is all about inspiring you to believe in yourself. To motivate you to have more self-confidence.
Self-confidence is our own belief about how ‘good’ we are, our abilities and our talents.

These quotes focus on the importance of believing in yourself, the power of possibilities, self-acceptance, trust, resilience and knowing that failure and setbacks are part of life, but we don’t have to let them stop us.
