Tarvis Bradberry On Success

“Successful people often exude confidence – it’s obvious that they believe in themselves and what they’re doing. It isn’t their success that makes them confident, however. The confidence was there first.”


Diego Maradonna On Winning

“When you win, you don’t get carried away. But if you go step by step, with confidence, you can go far.”

Priyanka Chopra Jones On Self-Actualization

“I taught myself confidence. When I’d walk into a room and feel scared to death, I’d tell myself, ‘I’m not afraid of anybody.’ And people believed me. You’ve got to teach yourself to take over the world.”


Marie Curie On Perseverance

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.” 


Marianne Williamson On Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. 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.”


Elisabeth Kubler-Ross On Internal Light

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”


EE Cumings On The Human Spirit

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”


Bruce Lee On Being Yourself

“Always be yourself. Express yourself. Have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”


Dale Carnegie On Keeping Busy

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”


Oprah Winfrey On Adventure

“It is confidence in our bodies, minds, and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures.”


Mark Victor Hanson On Perfectionism

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”


Hayley Hasselhoff On Imperfections

“It’s all about confidence and how you feel about yourself. There’s no such thing as a perfect woman. I like imperfections – that’s what makes you unique.”


Brian Tracy On Our Personal Prophecy

“Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.”

“Faith is a living, daring, confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could state his life on it a thousand times.”
