Confidence is constructive. Over-confidence is destructive

 Do you find you are confident in some areas but not others? Do you feel that self-belief holds you back? You can’t find the full answer in a quick quotation, but it’s not a bad place to start.

  • Increasing your self-esteem is easy. Simply do good things and remember you did them.


  • Experience isn’t what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you.


  • Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you’re in control they’re in control

Tom Landry

  • To walk around with an ego is a bad thing. To have confidence in yourself is a great thing

Fred Durst

  • Confidence contributes more to a conversation than wit

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

  • No-one can make you feel inferior without your consent

Eleanor Roosevelt

  • Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Mohandas Ghandi

  • And no one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves.

Marianne Williamson

  • I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinion of himself than on the opinion of others.

 Marcus Aurelius

  • Happiness is managing your self-confidence so that it never gets more than half a pace ahead of your talent. To do this, listen to closely to others and learn from them, but recognise what is fact and what is opinion. Absorb one and seek to understand the other.
