How do you build self-confidence?
What’s the secret to believing in yourself?
Do you have a dream or intimating goal you are seeking to achieve? Odds are if you have big (or even small) plans for yourself, you’re going to need to constantly boost your confidence.
Before you can even put in the work or push yourself to accomplish your goals, you must believe in yourself and have the confidence to succeed.
Having confidence in yourself and believing that you can is honestly half of the battle. We spend so much time doubting our abilities, worrying and wondering if we really can, stalled in stops of fear and failure and confronted by doubts and fear at every turn.
Does this sound like you?
What you need is a boost to your self-confidence. Your ability to achieve your goals and actually go after your dreams starts with believing in yourself and being confident.
A lot of the reasons why you can’t accomplish something or be someone fade and lose their power when you are hyper-focused that you can, that it’s possible, that you are able, that you deserve to and that you can and will make it.
Do you need to gain self-confidence? Maybe you’ve lost your mojo and need to get your confidence back?
Here are 39 confidence-boosting quotes to help you believe in yourself right now.

How to Be Confident In Yourself
I know it’s hard to be confident in yourself when things aren’t going as well as you’d like, or you need to leave your comfort zone.
But, confidence has nothing to do with the reality of your situation or even how difficult or challenging the road ahead is for you.
Self-confidence is all about you and how you feel about yourself, not about your situation or any other person.
Confidence is won in your mind, and you are always in control of that. If you’re confident, you can do it. You are as capable as how confident you are.
When you’re feeling inadequate, unworthy or that you just cannot make it, or like too many things are going wrong and outside of your control, remember that:
- There are no limits, except in your mind
- Anything is possible for you
- Just believe in yourself
- Trust in yourself and your abilities
- You don’t need to be “special”
- You’ve had success and go for the small win
- Fake it until you make it
Be confident in yourself and what YOU have to offer. Focus on yourself, not on others or your circumstances.
It’s easy to blame a lack of confidence on not being as good as, or as successful as someone else. Or even on how difficult or challenging your life is.
But the truth is, your self-confidence and ability to believe in yourself have nothing to do with anyone or anything else. It’s not about what you can do, or how good you are in comparison others. It’s about whether or not you are confident in yourself that you can.
