Everybody admires a self-confident person. Self-confident people seem at ease with themselves and their work. They invite trust and inspire confidence in others(1).

While many people appear to be born confident with themselves and their own ability, I understand that is not the case for the rest of us. That’s why I’ve created this list with the most inspirational self-confidence quotes that helped with my social anxiety and self-doubt.

It’s not always easy to be confident in yourself when you talk negatively to yourself and/or other people put you down. Especially in today’s world, where everyone’s success is on full display on Social Media, it can be a real struggle not to compare ourselves with these people.

Luckily, anyone can develop self-confidence.

Even the majority of shy people have moments where they are not shy, like when they’re around people they trust, family, friends, or their partner. They have moments where they can be themselves fully.

So, the shyness is selective, which means you can make confidence permanent by consciously deciding to work towards improving your self-confidence and improving your life.

The next time you catch yourself talking negatively inside of your head, saying that you are not good enough, or when you need a little confidence boost, read through these self-confidence quotes to help you believe in yourself and destroy any self-doubt. Good luck!
