Self-Confidence Quotes to Boost Your Self-Esteem
Something a little different this time! I decided to write a post filled with completely original self-confidence quotes all written by me. These ones are all on the topic of feeling better about yourself. I hope they add some inspiration to your day.
Self-Confidence Quotes About Trying New Things
“One day you’ll wake up wondering what you were afraid of. But it will be too late. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Don’t wait for next week. Don’t wait for the end of your life to feel confident. Confidence grows through the doing, not the waiting. Go do what it is you want to do now.”
“Self-confidence gives you wings to fly. Why? It frees you up from that voice in your head that says ‘What if I’m not good enough.’ All of a sudden, anything is possible.”
“If you want to be an innovator, a creator, a visionary, or change-maker, you can’t get caught up in self-deprecating thoughts. What good does that do? You’ve got work to do.”
Self-Confidence Quotes About Your Appearance
“Confidence is the cheapest makeover you can give yourself. It costs nothing, has no downside, and is available to anyone at any time.”
“They say to fake it until you make it. But I don’t think that’s it. It’s more like act the part until you become it.”
“Smile. It’s like self-confidence on steroids.”
“Eye contact displays confidence not because it shows that you are in control, but because it shows that you are listening.”
“If you don’t feel self-confident about the way that you look, ask yourself this. Have you done your best to present yourself in a confident way? If your answer is yes, then what’s the point in worrying? If the answer is no, then you know it’s time to get to work.”
Self-Confidence Quotes About Growing Confidence
“Get up each morning with a list of 3 things that you need to accomplish that day to feel good about yourself. Do that for 365 days. See if your self-confidence grows.”
“Some people think self-confidence is a trait you are born with. If that were true, Mahatma Gandhi would never have gone from fearful speaker to fearless leader. Self-confidence comes from doing that which you think you cannot do.”
“Confidence is not a finish line. It’s not like you wake up one day and realize you’re self-confident. It will ebb and flow. You need to learn to ride the highs and lows. Find a groove somewhere in the middle.”
“Can you grow your self-confidence the way you grow your bank account? Sure, if you think of your thoughts as your deposits. Think things that build you up instead of tear you down. And if someone else tears you down, you’ll need to double up your efforts.”
“The most beautiful thing you can bestow on your children is self-confidence. And the way to help it grow is not to tell them how wonderful they are, but to praise them for how hard they work and how much they try.”
“Confidence that grows with age is like beautiful sea glass. It didn’t start that way.”

Self-Confidence Quotes About Comparisons
“It’s nobody else’s job to make you feel good. Your confidence can’t depend on what other people think of you. It has to depend on what you think of yourself.”
“It’s not about not caring what other people think. It’s not about ranking yourself better than them. It’s about stopping the comparison altogether. Unless that comparison is with you in the past.”
“Not everyone wants to soar with the eagles, and that’s okay. Find what makes you feel good, and then be confident in your space in the world.”
Self-Confidence Quotes About Confident People
“Three words: courage, consideration, and clarity. Confident people aren’t afraid to take action, they meet each other halfway, and they are always clear on their goals.”
“Take each day in stride. If this wasn’t a good day, that doesn’t mean it won’t be a good week, month, or year. Your minutes and hours don’t define you. Keep the long game in perspective.”
“Confidence doesn’t equal arrogance. Don’t get the two confused. An arrogant person isn’t listening and doesn’t care. A confident person is all ears and wants to make you feel good.”
“In an era where self-confidence is measured in followers and boosted through selfies, it’s a welcome reprieve to just sit quietly and know that you’re enough.”
“Even if you are socially anxious, you don’t need to let that erode your self-confidence. You can be anxious and confident at the same time. The two are not mutually exclusive.”

Some of these are affiliate links, so if you decide to try them, I’ll earn a commission. However, I only recommend things I have used myself and would recommend to a friend or family member.
Online Therapy: For online therapy, I have personally used and like the service offered by Betterhelp. It's easy to get started from the comfort of your home. You'll even get a discount on your first month of therapy when you use my link.
Doctor Visits: For doctor visits, Web Doctors offers convenient online appointments.
Audible Subscription: I recommend a lot of self-help books on this site, but I actually prefer an audiobook subscription over print books! My favorite subscription service is Audible because it has all the best-sellers and they stay in your digital library forever (even if you end your subscription). You can sign up for a free trial and listen to your first two books for free.
