I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once.
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do.
The man who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.
Accepting personal responsibility for your life frees you from outside influences – increases your self-esteem – boosts confidence in your ability to decisions – and ultimately leads to achieve success in life.
Roy T. Bennett
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment.
