Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Self Confidence quotes by Brian Tracy

Self Confidence quotes by Q. Gibson

Self Confidence quotes by Cinda Williams Chima
#5. He wasn't proud or arrogant, but there was a self-confidence about him that said he knew what he wanted and he was going to get it, and you'd better not get in his way. #Quote by Cinda Williams Chima
Self Confidence quotes by Atul Gawande
#6. Even worse than losing self-confidence, though, is reacting defensively. There are surgeons who will see faults everywhere except in themselves. They have no questions and no fears about their abilities. As a result, they learn nothing from their mistakes and know nothing of their limitations. As one surgeon told me, it is a rare but alarming thing to meet a surgeon without fear. "If you're not a little afraid when you operate," he said, "you're bound to do a patient a grave disservice. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Self Confidence quotes by Osho
#7. You are always afraid that somebody may think you a fool. You are afraid that if others think you to be a fool, you will start suspecting it. If so many people think you a fool your self-confidence will be lost. And if everybody goes on repeating that you are a fool, sooner or later you will come to believe it.

Only a wise man cannot be deceived, he can appear as a fool.

Have you observed yourself? You are always trying to exhibit your wisdom, always in search of a victim to whom you can show your knowledge, just searching, hunting for somebody weaker than you – then you will jump in and you will show your wisdom.
A wise man need not be an exhibitionist. Whatsoever is, is. He is not aware of it, he is not in any hurry to show it. If you want to find it, you will have to make efforts. If you have to know whether he is gentle or not, that is going to be your discovery. #Quote by Osho
Self Confidence quotes by August Kubizek
#8. Externally Hitler sill appears a drifting character: he has failed at school, has no employment, has been rejected by the Academy, is in Vienna for no clearly stated purpose, lives on a pittance eked out by painting postcards. But behind this shiftless exterior Kubizek constructs what must have been there, although it was not apparent to casual acquaintances: the character of the man who, from these beginnings, without any other natural advantages besides his own personality, became the most powerful and terrible tyrant and conqueror of modern history. Here we see - along with the incipient monomania, the repetitive cliches, and the Wagnerian romanticism of his later years - the early evidence of that unbreakable will power, that extraordinary self-confidence. We see the penniless, unemployed, unemployable young Hitler, at sixteen, confidently rebuilding in his imagination the city of Linz, as he was afterwards to rebuild it in fact, and never for a moment doubting that he would one day carry out these improbable plans; we see him exercising over an elderly Austrian upholsterer that irresistible hypnotic power with which he was afterwards to seduce a whole nation; we see him, in Vienna, fortifying himself against a corrupt and purposeless society by adopting an iron asceticism, like some ancient crusader guarding himself against corruption in a pagan world. And then turning to detail, we see in Vienna, when Kubizek was closest to him, the working of Hitler's mind as it feels #Quote by August Kubizek
Self Confidence quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#9. The secret is contained in a three-part formula I learned in the gym: self confidence, a positive mental attitude, and honest hard work. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Self Confidence quotes by Arsi Nami
#10. Love from within, be determined and let your self-confidence take you to heights you never experienced before #Quote by Arsi Nami
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#11. Stand firm. Stand tall. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by Katie Hafner
#12. But today I'm indifferent. And with this comes a glimmer of understanding: I can pick and choose what I absorb and what I deflect. This is how the color spectrum works: Some colors absorb light, while others deflect it, depending on where they are on the spectrum. Earlier in my life, when it came to hurtful words from my mother, I was more like an off-shade of brown, absorbing most of them. Now, with experience, wisdom, and a little more self-confidence, my spectrum is shifting. I'm making a choice to be less absorptive. And her comment... is one for which I choose to become pure white. #Quote by Katie Hafner
Self Confidence quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#13. The only man meant to be in your life is a man that knows your worth. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Self Confidence quotes by John Cleese
#14. Self-confidence seemed to me more mimicry than anything else and I suggested visiting Clifton Zoo to watch the leaders in a group of baboons, and learn from them: make your gestures slow and deliberate; cultivate a deeper voice; appear casual at all times; eschew all rapid movements. That was all you had to do to look confident. #Quote by John Cleese
Self Confidence quotes by Tanya R. Taylor
#15. Being a slave to a fellow human being, many times, starts with giving his opinion more weight than you should. #Quote by Tanya R. Taylor
Self Confidence quotes by G.D.H. Cole
#16. Man is everywhere in chains, and his chains will not be broken till he feels that it is degrading to be a bondsman, whether to an individual or to a State. The disease of civilization is not so much the material poverty of the many as the decay of the spirit of freedom and self-confidence. The revolt that will change the world will spring, not from the benevolence that breeds "reform", but from the will to be free. Men will act together in the full consciousness of their mutual dependence; but they will act for themselves. Their liberty will not be given them from above; they will take it on their own behalf. #Quote by G.D.H. Cole
Self Confidence quotes by Amanda Mosher
#17. Affection is the source of self-confidence, happiness, security, and a comfortable mental state. #Quote by Amanda Mosher
Self Confidence quotes by Aleister Crowley
#19. Every individual has some qualities that endear him to some other. And per contra, I doubt if there is any class which is not detestable to some other class. Artists, police, the clergy, "reds," foxhunters, Freemasons, Jews, "heaven-born," women's clubwomen (especially in U.S.A.), "Methodys," golfers, dog-lovers; you can't find one body without its "natural" enemies. It's right, what's worse; every class, as a class, is almost sure to have more defects than qualities. As soon as you put men together, they somehow sink, corporatively, below the level of the worst of the individuals composing it. Collect scholars on a club committee, or men of science on a jury; all their virtues vanish, and their vices pop out, reinforced by the self-confidence which the power of numbers is bound to bestow. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Self Confidence quotes by Auliq Ice
#20. Be decisive and handle objections as they come, don't relay on others much and don't look to others to determine if you're acting right or wrong. Do what feels right for you. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Self Confidence quotes by Sasha Azevedo
#21. When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. #Quote by Sasha Azevedo
Self Confidence quotes by Lionel Blue
#22. If a dish doesn't turn out right, change the name and don't bat an eyelid. A fallen souffle is only a risen omelette. It depends on the self-confidence with which you present it. #Quote by Lionel Blue
Self Confidence quotes by Fennel Hudson
#23. Walk free from the long shadows cast by small people. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Self Confidence quotes by Tucker Max
#24. The idea that guys should walk into a bar and confidently initiate contact and then seduce a woman based on a short term conversation is a toxic cultural myth that robs guys of self-confidence and that holds them up to an unrealistic standard that they have to become a super-extraverted narcissist in order to 'score with women' #Quote by Tucker Max
Self Confidence quotes by Vishwas Chavan
#25. Sometimes standing for truth is painful and an isolated journey because truth is not always what we like to hear and live with. However, it is your belief in the purity of truth, your confidence in yourself and your godly values that will give you the strength to be a torchbearer of truth. With truth you are always a winner even if it comes late or with a price to pay. #Quote by Vishwas Chavan
Self Confidence quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#26. Staring at the light of another blinds the view of our own. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Self Confidence quotes by Augustus Y. Napier
#27. By marrying to soon, many individuals sacrifice their chance to struggle through this purgatory of solitude and search toward a greater sense of self-confidence. They glance at the world outside the family and with hardly a second thought grasp anxiously for a partner. In marriage they seek a substitute for the security of the family of origin and an escape from aloneness. What they do not realize is that moving so quickly from one family to another, they make it easy to transfer to the new marriage all their difficult experiences in the family of origin. #Quote by Augustus Y. Napier
Self Confidence quotes by Reshma Saujani
#28. We've become conditioned to compromise and shrink ourselves in order to be liked. The problem is, when you work so hard to get everyone to like you, you very often end up not liking yourself so much. #Quote by Reshma Saujani
Self Confidence quotes by Paul Wellstone
#29. I emphasize self-esteem, self-confidence, and dignity, not as an ideal, but as a real test of community organization. Without leadership development, community organizations do not have staying power. #Quote by Paul Wellstone
Self Confidence quotes by Jenai Charles
#30. no need to seek your other half.
you are already whole #Quote by Jenai Charles
Self Confidence quotes by Matthew Fox
#31. Faith takes us to deep places, to the ruptures in our self-confidence and our lives. Do not settle for spiritual comfort all the time ... Darkness is divine also. Faith is not about positive thinking so much as about what kicks in when we are weak, sick, and short of self-confidence. The via positiva never stands alone. The via negativa is always with us on our faith journey as well. #Quote by Matthew Fox
Self Confidence quotes by Mary V. Pate
#32. Life is a journey, a ride of endless means and emotions. #Quote by Mary V. Pate
Self Confidence quotes by Vicktor Alexander
#33. And lose my cock, balls and prostate? Are you kidding me? Honey, I'm still all man. I'm just a man with decoration, Tommy had explained before turning with a flounce and practically floating out of the room in his heels. #Quote by Vicktor Alexander
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#34. I believe in my sacred soul. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by Audrey Hepburn
#35. I lack self-confidence. I don't know whether I shall ever get it. Perhaps it is better to be unsure of your self, as I am. But it is very tiring. #Quote by Audrey Hepburn
Self Confidence quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#36. You never step backwards when you're sure of where you're going. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. I am all that I have. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by Anonymous
#38. A realization of the universal lack of self-confidence strengthens one's own. #Quote by Anonymous
Self Confidence quotes by Wayne Dyer
#39. Be aware of your infinite connection to your source. Know that you're more than an encapsulated collection of bones, blood and organs in a skin and hair covered body. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Self Confidence quotes by Jeffrey Archer
#40. I watched Hugo Barrington when he gave his evidence. The same self-confidence, the same arrogance, the same half-truths spouted convincingly to the jury, just as he'd whispered them to me in the privacy of the bedroom. #Quote by Jeffrey Archer
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#41. If you believe you can, you can make your dreams come true. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by Kenneth  Clark
#42. What happened?

It took Gibbon six volumes to describe the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, so I shan't embark on that. But thinking about this almost incredible episode does tell one something about the nature of civilisation.

It shows that however complex and solid it seems, it is actually quite fragile. It can be destroyed.

What are its enemies?

Well, first of all fear - fear of war, fear of invasion, fear of plague and famine, that make it simply not worthwhile constructing things, or planting trees or even planning next year's crops. And fear of the supernatural, which means that you daren't question anything or change anything.

The late antique world was full of meaningless rituals, mystery religions, that destroyed self-confidence. And then exhaustion, the feeling of hopelessness which can overtake people even with a high degree of material prosperity. 

There is a poem by the modern Greek poet, Cavafy, in which he imagines the people of an antique town like Alexandria waiting every day for the barbarians to come and sack the city. Finally the barbarians move off somewhere else and the city is saved; but the people are disappointed - it would have been better than nothing.

Of course, civilisation requires a modicum of material prosperity - 

What civilization needs:

confidence in the society in which one lives, belief in its philosophy, belief in its laws, and confidence in one's own mental p #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Self Confidence quotes by Katori Hall
#44. Don't let others put thoughts into your mind that takes away your self-confidence. #Quote by Katori Hall
Self Confidence quotes by Andrew Solomon
#45. Without self-discovery," Hahn wrote, extending an idea of Nietzsche's, "a person may still have self-confidence, but it is a self-confidence built on ignorance and it melts in the face of heavy burdens. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Self Confidence quotes by Julie B. Campbell
#46. Jules was a proud little toy. She decided that she was going to work very hard to be the best wolf she could be. #Quote by Julie B. Campbell

3. Control your own destiny or someone else will.
4. Face reality as it is, not as it was ... or as you wish it to be.
5. Instill in others- faith, hope and self-confidence.
6. If you can't develop a competitive attitude or have a competitive advantage, don't try to compete. You'll lose.
7. Don't waste your time always looking for shortcuts.
8. Man-up when necessary.
9. Never lose faith in God.
10. Love. #Quote by Jose N Harris
Self Confidence quotes by Cindy Ann Peterson
#48. Give yourself the clear advantage of a positive perspective with styles that compliment your best features and colors all in perfect proportion to your body. #Quote by Cindy Ann Peterson
Self Confidence quotes by Napoleon Hill
#49. The development of self-confidence starts with the elimination of this demon called fear. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Self Confidence quotes by Sapphire
#50. I wanna say I am somebody. I wanna say it on subway, TV, movie, LOUD. I see the pink faces in suits look over top of my head. I watch myself disappear in their eyes, their tesses. I talk loud but still I don't exist. #Quote by Sapphire
Self Confidence quotes by Katha Pollitt
#51. If a woman says, I am getting these breast implants to gain self confidence, then I have to ask, What kind of a society do we live in where a woman's self-confidence depends on having a dangerous, expensive and painful operation on a perfectly healthy body? #Quote by Katha Pollitt
Self Confidence quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#52. Go where you are celebrated, not denigrated. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Self Confidence quotes by Vivica A. Fox
#53. A great figure or physique is nice, but it's self-confidence that makes someone really sexy. #Quote by Vivica A. Fox
Self Confidence quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#54. The self-confidence one builds from achieving difficult things and accomplishing goals is the most beautiful thing of all. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Self Confidence quotes by David Nicholls
#55. You're gorgeous, you old hag, and if I could give you just one gift ever for the rest of your life it would be this. Confidence. It would be the gift of confidence. Either that or a scented candle #Quote by David Nicholls
Self Confidence quotes by Bowie Kuhn
#56. I had a lot of self-confidence. #Quote by Bowie Kuhn
Self Confidence quotes by T.C. Boyle
#57. In order to create you have to believe in your ability to do so and that often means excluding whole chunks of normal life, and, of course, pumping yourself up as much as possible as a way of keeping on. Sort of cheering for yourself in the great football stadium of life.
(Barnes & Noble Review, email dialogue with Cameron Martin, Feb. 09, 2009) #Quote by T.C. Boyle
Self Confidence quotes by Marshall Sylver
#58. One of the first ways to begin building your self-confidence is to focus on what's great about you. #Quote by Marshall Sylver
Self Confidence quotes by Bruce Lee
#59. Action is a high road to self-confidence and esteem. Where it is open, all energies flow toward it. It comes readily to most people, and its rewards are tangible. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Self Confidence quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#60. True it is that she who escapeth safe and unpolluted from out the school of freedom, giveth more confidence of herself than she who comet sound out of the school of severity and restraint. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Self Confidence quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#61. It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Self Confidence quotes by Lust (DreadLock Monsta)
#62. In this world of stars, I just want to be different #Quote by Lust (DreadLock Monsta)
Self Confidence quotes by Paul Samuelson
#63. Even fans of actively managed funds often concede that most other investors would be better off in index funds. But buoyed by abundant self-confidence, these folks aren't about to give up on actively managed funds themselves. A tad delusional? I think so. Picking the best-performing funds is 'like trying to predict the dice before you roll them down the craps table,' says an investment adviser in Boca Raton, FL. 'I can't do it. The public can't do it.' #Quote by Paul Samuelson
Self Confidence quotes by Susan C. Young
#65. Set goals to create a clear sense of purpose and direction. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Self Confidence quotes by John Schuerholz
#66. Braves win! Braves win!" is a much appreciated validation of the principles and policies that I have adopted, nurtured, and implemented both with the uniformed personnel and the club's administration throughout my tenure as general manager. ...
It rewards the leadership concept of supporting the staff, providing them with a vision and with clear goals, and infusing them with the self-confidence and pride to execute that blueprint at a championship level. It smoothes over the missteps, the disappointments, the crises that we overcome together. #Quote by John Schuerholz
Self Confidence quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#67. Because of the self-confidence with which he had spoken, no one could tell whether what he said was very clever or very stupid. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Self Confidence quotes by Anonymous
#68. Once you've discounted your own moral authority, once you've undermined your own country's moral self-confidence, you cannot lead. #Quote by Anonymous
Self Confidence quotes by Osho
#69. Find ecstasy within yourself. It is not out there. It is in your innermost flowering. The one you are looking for is you. #Quote by Osho
Self Confidence quotes by Tim Fargo
#70. If you want to improve your self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator. #Quote by Tim Fargo
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#71. The pursuit of a greater self is a holy-being. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by William Duncan Silkworth
#72. We believe, and so suggested a few years ago, that the action of alcohol on these chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy; that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class and never occurs in the average temperate drinker. These allergic types can never safely use alcohol in any form at all; and once having formed the habit and found they cannot break it, once having lost their self confidence, their reliance upon things human, their problems pile up on them and become astonishingly difficult to solve. #Quote by William Duncan Silkworth
Self Confidence quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#73. We can free ourselves from the old stories that have reduced us & allow real love for ourselves to blossom. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Self Confidence quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#74. Self-confidence means a feeling of trust in one's qualities, abilities, and judgment. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Self Confidence quotes by Paul Tough
#75. What matters most in a child's development, they say, is not how much information we can stuff into her brain in the first few years. What matters, instead, is whether we are able to help her develop a very different set of qualities, a list that includes persistence, self-control, curiosity, conscientiousness, grit and self-confidence. #Quote by Paul Tough
Self Confidence quotes by Andre Maurois
#76. She was remarkably beautiful. And yet there was something in her eyes that I didn't like. A bit don't want to say falsity...that would be was--I don't know how to explain it -- it was something like triumphant cunning. Odile needed to dominate. She wanted to impose her will, her version of the truth. Her beauty had given her a lot of self-confidence and she believed, almost in good faith, that if she said something then it became true. This worked with your husband, who adored her, but not with me, and she resented me for that. #Quote by Andre Maurois
Self Confidence quotes by Criss Jami
#77. Confidence is like a dragon where, for every head cut off, two more heads grow back. #Quote by Criss Jami
Self Confidence quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#78. Inspiration gives strength to do, what we are capable of doing. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Self Confidence quotes by V.C. Andrews
#79. Stature comes from your demeanor, your self confidence. #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Self Confidence quotes by Lynn Johnston
#80. When Kate was born, she was born into a world of joy and happiness and confidence. The difference between the children is night and day. She's happy, she's thriving, she's full of self-confidence. I tell her she's beautiful every day before I send her off to school. #Quote by Lynn Johnston
Self Confidence quotes by Peter Gay
#81. The truth is that the angels of anxiety - those overpowering forces for change in politics, economics, science, morals, and social policy - were at the same time agents for self-confidence. #Quote by Peter Gay
Self Confidence quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#82. The teacher not only shapes the expectations and ambitions of her pupils, but she also influences their attitudes toward their future and themselves. If she is unskilled, she leaves scars on the lives of youth, cuts deeply into their self-esteem, and distorts their image of themselves as human beings. But if she loves her students and has high expectations of them, their self-confidence will grow, their capabilities will develop, and their future will be assured. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Self Confidence quotes by Karen White
#83. It's good to be a little nervous. God compensates those with a lack of talent with an overabundance of self-confidence. -Gigi #Quote by Karen White
Self Confidence quotes by Maria Montessori
#84. The chief symptom of adolescence is a state of expectation, a tendency towards creative work, and a need for the strengthening of self-confidence. Suddenly, the child becomes very sensitive to the rudeness and humiliations which he had previously suffered with patient indifference. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Self Confidence quotes by Tammara Webber
#85. I knew Chaz was a good guy, if misguided and gullible. He'd swallowed Buck's side of what happened between us, had argued with Erin that maybe I was drunk that night and didn't remember everything clearly. He was probably one of those boys to whom rapists were ugly men who jumped out of bushes, assaulting random girls. Rapists weren't your nice-guy coworker, or your frat brother, or your best friend. Maybe it never occurred to him that his best friend was capable of ripping a girl's self-confidence away in the span of five minutes. #Quote by Tammara Webber
Self Confidence quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#86. Even more essential, however, is the identification of the individuals in the masses with the "führer." The more helpless the "mass-individual" has become, owing to his upbringing, the more pronounced is his identification with the führer, and the more the childish need for protection is disguised in the form of a feeling at one with the führer. This inclination to identify is the psychological basis of national narcissism, i.e., of the self-confidence that individual man derives from the "greatness of the nation." The reactionary lower middle-class man perceives himself in the führer, in the authoritarian state. On the basis of this identification he feels himself to be a defender of the "national heritage," of the "nation," which does not prevent him, likewise on the basis of this identification, from simultaneously despising "the masses" and confronting them as an individual. The wretchedness of his material and sexual situation is so overshadowed by the exalting idea of belonging to a master race and having a brilliant führer that, as time goes on, he ceases to realize how completely he has sunk to a position of insignificant, blind allegiance.

The worker who is conscious of his skills - he, in short, who has rid himself of his submissive structure, who identifies with his work and not with the führer, with the international working masses and not with the national homeland - represents the opposite of this. He feels himself to be a leader, not on the basis of #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Self Confidence quotes by Théun Mares
#87. Self-confidence, as it is generally understood, implies arrogant presumption; humility implies being impeccable in one's actions and feelings. #Quote by Théun Mares
Self Confidence quotes by Milan Kundera
#88. The difference between the university graduate and the autodidact lies not so much in the extent of knowledge as in the extent of vitality and self-confidence #Quote by Milan Kundera
Self Confidence quotes by Marvin Minsky
#89. We shouldn't let our envy of distinguished masters of the arts distract us from the wonder of how each of us gets new ideas. Perhaps we hold on to our superstitions about creativity in order to make our own deficiencies seem more excusable. For when we tell ourselves that masterful abilities are simply unexplainable, we're also comforting ourselves by saying that those superheroes come endowed with all the qualities we don't possess. Our failures are therefore no fault of our own, nor are those heroes' virtues to their credit, either. If it isn't learned, it isn't earned.

When we actually meet the heroes whom our culture views as great, we don't find any singular propensities––only combinations of ingredients quite common in themselves. Most of these heroes are intensely motivated, but so are many other people. They're usually very proficient in some field--but in itself we simply call this craftmanship or expertise. They often have enough self-confidence to stand up to the scorn of peers--but in itself, we might just call that stubbornness. They surely think of things in some novel ways, but so does everyone from time to time. And as for what we call "intelligence", my view is that each person who can speak coherently already has the better part of what our heroes have. Then what makes genius appear to stand apart, if we each have most of what it takes?

I suspect that genius needs one thing more: in order to accumulate outstanding qualities, one needs u #Quote by Marvin Minsky
Self Confidence quotes by Mystery
#90. Persistence - This is another way to relieve her of any responsibility for what is happening. Of course, don't confuse persistence with begging, arguing, or being pushy, needy, or creepy. All it means is don't give up too easily. Girls may test you to find out how easily you throw in the towel - they want to gauge your self-confidence. Just assume that she is giving a little token resistance, and continue. If she didn't resist at least a little bit, she would feel like a slut - and that's not going to happen. And if you can't take her crap, how in the world are you going to protect her from other people's crap?
This can be tricky - an overly aggressive man might misinterpret all resistance as being merely token and could eventually find himself facing a rape charge. However, a man who isn't persistence enough will acquiesce every time a women resists, when in may cases she was secretly hoping he could be a little more forceful. #Quote by Mystery
Self Confidence quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#91. The problem isn't that I think so highly of myself. It is just that you think so little of yourself. Live life BIG, BOLD and OUT LOUD! #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Self Confidence quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#92. To spend my days regretting what I'm not is to rob me of the energy I need to celebrate who I am. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Self Confidence quotes by Eric Hoffer
#93. Poverty when coupled with creativeness is usually free of frustration. This is true of the poor artisan skilled in his trade and of the poor writer, artist, and scientist in the full possession of creative powers. Nothing so bolsters our self-confidence and reconciles us with ourselves as the continuous ability to create; to see things grow and develop under our hand, day in, day out. The decline of handicrafts in modern times is perhaps one of the causes for the rise of frustration and the increased susceptibility of the individual to mass movements. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Self Confidence quotes by Aspen Matis
#94. There was so little I wanted to carry. Packing my backpack took me all of four minutes #Quote by Aspen Matis
Self Confidence quotes by Maya Angelou
#95. Inscribed on the temple of Apollo #Quote by Maya Angelou
Self Confidence quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#96. I am much younger now than I was at twelve or anyway, less burdened. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Self Confidence quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#97. You made me laugh at your jokes.
You made me cry at your criticism.
You made me shout at your lies.
Then I noticed how in every case someone else was present,
hearing you without laughter or tears or anger.
I alone reacted.
I see now; you never made me laugh or cry or rage.
I chose to find humor.
I chose to take offense.
I chose to feel scorned.
The truth is, you never had power over me. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Self Confidence quotes by Bell Hooks
#98. Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Self Confidence quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#99. I might have been just half an Asian, but in America it was all or nothing when it came to race. You were either white or you weren't. Funnily enough, I had never felt inferior because of my race during my foreign student days. I was foreign by definition and therefore was treated as a guest. But now, even though I was a card-carrying American with a driver's license, Social Security card, and resident alien permit, Violet still considered me as foreign, and this misrecognition punctured the smooth skin of my self-confidence. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Self Confidence quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
#100. Self confidence is the ground stone of success #Quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Self Confidence quotes by Mark Donnelly
#101. Protect your self-esteem and self-confidence - it is your responsibility! #Quote by Mark Donnelly
Self Confidence quotes by Bill Shore
#102. So a visionary's best defense… is not only having a thick skin, but having reservoirs of self-confidence as well. Because when those invested in the status quo feel threatened, they chip away at not only the upstart's ideas, but also his or her motives and character. Just as big trucks require big wheels, and tall buildings require deep foundations, people with big dreams need a large reservoir of self-confidence to maintain their balance and go forward. #Quote by Bill Shore

Self Confidence quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#106. The problem when you are a strong, capable, self-confident person, is that more often than not, people think that you don't really need things like comfort, reassurance, loyalty and guidance. People are more likely to look at you and say, "She doesn't need this", "She doesn't need that", "She's already all of this and all of that". But then the truth is that most probably, you are a strong, capable, self-confident person because you built yourself brick-by-brick into that person; because you HAD to BECOME that person; because you had determination enough to make yourself into the image that you knew you needed to become. At the heart of many strong, confident people, is a heart most longing of the things that most others simply take for granted. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Self Confidence quotes by Saaif Alam

Self Confidence quotes by Tammara Webber
#109. Here's to everyone who has survived something devastating
something that shattered your self-confidence and distorted your world in one blow. Whether you were fierce in the face of it or fell to pieces or shoved it out of sight for years
I don't care how you got here. Every day you are stronger. Every day you are healing. Every day that you survive, you are telling that event, that person, that illness, that memory: YOU DO NOT DEFINE ME. Keep on.

Self Confidence quotes by Joel Annesley
#110. Shyness is born from a lack of self-confidence and fear of ridicule. In my case it latched on to the young boy who didn't have confidence in himself or his abilities after being belittled by his first-grade teacher. Introversion, on the other hand, is a tremendous gift that allows for inquisitive curiosity about life. Introversion created in this young boy a fascination with life, nature, science, creativity, and imagination. #Quote by Joel Annesley

Self Confidence quotes by Peter Hollingworth
#112. I didn't do very well at school, and I suppose I've always had this sense, you know that, of being average, so I've been a bit low on self-confidence in my ability. #Quote by Peter Hollingworth

Self Confidence quotes by Ryszard Legutko
#115. The ideological man is thus both absolutely suspicious and absolutely enthusiastic. There seems to be no idea under the sun that he would not put into question and make an object of derision, skepticism, or contempt, no idea that he would not reduce to an offshoot of hidden instincts, mundane interests, biological drives, and psychological complexes. Hence he is likely to despise reason as an autonomous faculty, to downgrade lofty ideals, and to debunk the past, seeing everywhere the same ideological mystification. But at the same time, he lives in a constant state of mobilization for a better world. His mouth is full of noble slogans about brotherhood, freedom, and justice, and with every word he makes it clear that he knows which side is right and that he is ready to sacrifice his entire existence for the sake of its victory. The peculiar combination of both attitudes--merciless distrust and unwavering affirmation--gives him an incomparable sense of moral self-confidence and intellectual self-righteousness. #Quote by Ryszard Legutko
Self Confidence quotes by Michele Jennae
#116. The strangest thing was, as beautiful as I found her to be, she admitted that she wasn't always comfortable in her own skin. I found that hard to believe until she explained herself. All of the sudden I was not so much in awe of her but found myself empathizing with her. #Quote by Michele Jennae

Self Confidence quotes by B.C. Forbes
#118. What would you call America's most priceless asset? Surely not its limitless natural resources, not its matchless national wealth, not its unequalled store of gold, not its giant factories, not its surpassing railroads, not its unprecedented volume of cheap power. Is not its most priceless asset the character of its people, their indomitable self-confidence, their transcendent vision, their sleepless initiative and, perhaps above all, their inherent, irrepressible optimism? #Quote by B.C. Forbes

Self Confidence quotes by Jean Vanier
#120. One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Self Confidence quotes by Shannon L. Alder

Self Confidence quotes by Haruki Murakami
#125. Aomame knew that he worked for a corporation connected with oil. He was a specialist on capital investment in a number of Middle Eastern countries. According to the information she had been given, he was one of the more capable men in the field. She could see it in the way he carried himself. He came from a good family, earned a sizable income, and drove a new Jaguar. After a pampered childhood, he had gone to study abroad, spoke good English and French, and exuded self-confidence. He was the type who could not bear to be told what to do, or to be criticized, especially if the criticism came from a woman. He had no difficulty bossing others around, though, and cracking a few of his wife's ribs with a golf club was no problem at all. As far as he was concerned, the world revolved around him, and without him the earth didn't move at all. He could become furious - violently angry - if anyone interfered with what he was doing or contradicted him in any way. #Quote by Haruki Murakami

Self Confidence quotes by Mahmoud Darwish
#131. I see a bird carrying me and carrying you, with us as its wings, beyond the dream, to a journey that has no end and no beginning, no purpose and no goal. I do not speak to you, and you do not speak to me; we listen only to the music of silence. Silence is the friend's trust of friend, imagination's self-confidence between rain and rainbow.
A rainbow is inspiration provoking the poet, uninvited, the infatuation of the poet with the prose of the Quran.
Which of your Lord's blessings do you disown?
We are absent, you and I; we are present, you and I.
And absent.
Which of your Lord's blessings do you disown? #Quote by Mahmoud Darwish

Self Confidence quotes by Julia Quinn

Self Confidence quotes by Calvin Trillin

Self Confidence quotes by Thomas Sankara

Self Confidence quotes by Jennifer Weiner
#141. But I'll tell you a secret. You know what boys like? A woman who's happy with herself. Who's not making herself miserable with the Jane Fonda videotapes and complaining all the time about whether this part or that one's too big. And you know what else they like? She leaned in close, whispering into her granddaughter's ear. Good food. #Quote by Jennifer Weiner
Self Confidence quotes by Henri Nouwen

Self Confidence quotes by Philip Rieff
#149. Self-confidence is inseparable from submission to the creedal order, and through that order, to the supreme authority expressed in that order ... Deep individualism cannot exist except in relation to the highest authority. No inner discipline can operate without a charismatic institution, nor can such an institution survive without that supreme authority from a relation to whom self-confidence derives. Without an authority deeply installed, there is no foundation for individuality. Self-confidence thus expresses submission to supreme authority. #Quote by Philip Rieff

Self Confidence quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#152. It would be much truer to say that a man will certainly fail, because he believes in himself. Complete self-confidence is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness. Believing utterly in one's self is a hysterical and superstitious belief like believing in Joanna Southcote: the man who has it has 'Hanwell' written on his face as plain as it is written on that omnibus." And to all this my friend the publisher made this very deep and effective reply, "Well, if a man is not to believe in himself, in what is he to believe?" After a long pause I replied, "I will go home and write a book in answer to that question." This is the book that #Quote by G.K. Chesterton

Self Confidence quotes by Stieg Larsson
#162. Blomkvist had indeed had many brief relationships. He knew he was reasonably good-looking, but he had never considered himself exceptionally attractive. But he had often been told that he had something that made women interested in him ... that he radiated self-confidence and security at the same time, that he had the ability to make women feel at ease. Going to bed with him was not threatening or complicated, but it might be erotically enjoyable. And that, according to Blomkvist, was as it should be. #Quote by Stieg Larsson

Self Confidence quotes by Terry Brooks
#170. He had never been in love. He had not known what it would feel like. He understood what the term meant, but his life had not allowed for exploring its possibilities. There had been few he had really loved. His parents; Michael. That was it. And that was love of a different kind. Less intense, less hungry. What he felt for Simralin went so far beyond anything manageable that it shocked him. He could tell himself it was because he had found her beautiful in a way that transcended anything he had ever known. But his attraction to her was a response to so much more. To her self-confidence and way of speaking. To her smile and the quirky way she lifted one eyebrow when she was amused. To the way she carried herself. To the way she looked at him. #Quote by Terry Brooks
Self Confidence quotes by Abraham Verghese

Self Confidence quotes by Matthew Arnold
#172. For what can give a finer example of that frankness and manly self- confidence which our great public schools, and none of them so much as Eton, are supposed to inspire, of that buoyant ease in holding up one's head, speaking out what is in one's mind, and flinging off all sheepishness and awkwardness, than to see an Eton assistant-master offering in fact himself as evidence that to combine boarding-house- keeping with teaching is a good thing, and his brother as evidence that to train and race little boys for competitive examinations is a good thing? #Quote by Matthew Arnold

Self Confidence quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#178. Quick work doesn't mean less serious work, it depends on one's self-confidence and experience. In the same way Jules Guérard, the lion hunter, says in his book that in the beginning young lions have a lot of trouble killing a horse or an ox, but that the old lions kill with a single blow of the paw or a well-placed bite, and that they are amazingly sure at the job... I must warn you that everyone will think that I work too fast. Don't you believe a word of it. Is it not emotion, the sincerity of one's feeling for nature, that draws us, and if the emotions are sometimes so strong that one works without knowing one works, when sometimes the strokes come with a continuity and coherence like words in a speech or a letter, then one must remember that it has not always been so, and that in time to come there will again be hard days, empty of inspiration. So one must strike while the iron is hot, and put the forged bars on one side. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Self Confidence quotes by Kathryn Orford
#179. Sometimes our Biggest Nightmare turns out to be our Biggest Gift. And it all comes down to our attitude. Life will throw us curve balls and disappointments, even heartbreak. But ultimately we can choose if we're going to be Bitter or Better for the experience. #Quote by Kathryn Orford
Self Confidence quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#180. P. 274 ... his trademark decision to surrender power as commander in chief and then president, was not ... a sign that he had conquered his ambitions, but rather that he fully realized that all ambitions were inherently insatiable and unconquerable. He knew himself well enough to resist the illusion that he transcended human nature. Unlike Julius Caesar and Oliver Cromwell before him, and Napoleon, Lenin, and Mao after him, he understood that the greater glory resided in posterity's judgment. If you aspire to live forever in the memory of future generations, you must demonstrate the ultimate self-confidence to leave the final judgment to them. And he did. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis

Self Confidence quotes by E. M. Forster
#187. It is pleasant to be transferred from an office where one is afraid of a sergeant-major into an office where one can intimidate generals, and perhaps this is why history is so attractive to the more timid among us. We can recover self-confidence by snubbing the dead. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Self Confidence quotes by Colette Dowling
#188. Studies show that girls - especially smarter ones - have severe problems in the area of self-confidence.
They consistently underestimate their own ability. When asked how they think they'll do on different tasks - whether the tasks are untried or ones they've encountered before - they give lower estimates than boys do, and in general underestimate their actual performance as well. One study even showed that the brighter the girl, the less expectations she has of being successful at intellectual tasks. (...)
Low self-confidence is the plague of many girls, and it leads to a host of related problems. Girls are highly suggestible and tend to change their minds about perceptual judgments if someone disagrees with them. They set lower standards for themselves. While boys are challenged by difficult tasks, girls try to avoid them. (...) Given her felt incompetence, it's not surprising that the little girl would hotfoot it to the nearest Other and cling for dear life. (...) As we can see, the problems of excessive dependence follow female children right into adulthood. #Quote by Colette Dowling

And if there is nothing else I can find to be thankful for, let me begin here. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Self Confidence quotes by H.W. Brands
#196. What rendered it all acceptable was that government won the war, in astonishingly short order. Had the war dragged on or ended badly, the trust reposed in government might have been withdrawn. But the greatest conflict in human history was brought to a victorious conclusion for the United States only three and a half years after American entry. America's unprecedentedly large government defeated fascism; America's big government placed the United States at the pinnacle of world power. In the process, big government restored the nation's economic vitality and self-confidence. By 1945 most Americans found big government thoroughly acceptable, even necessary, and they had ample reason for feeling the way they did. #Quote by H.W. Brands

Self Confidence quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#198. As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is "AUTHENTICITY".

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it "RESPECT".

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it "MATURITY".

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it "SELF-CONFIDENCE".

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it "SIMPLICITY".

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is "LOVE OF ONESELF".

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ev #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Self Confidence quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#199. A competitive and insecure woman will tell you that "true love" is never giving up on someone you're in love with. A confident and spiritual woman knows that "moving on" doesn't mean you never loved someone. She realizes that letting go is what God needs her to do because both your happiness and hers requires taking different journeys for spiritual growth. Letting go is sometimes the hardest thing, but it is the most "real love" you will ever experience. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder

Self Confidence quotes by Charlie Munger
#202. You must have the confidence to override people with more credentials than you whose cognition is impaired by incentive-caused bias or some similar psychological force that is obviously present. But there are also cases where you have to recognize that you have no wisdom to add - and that your best course is to trust some expert. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Self Confidence quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#203. A woman imagines what she wants, and plans mentally for the transition. She gathers strength to prepare for the emotional challenges in her life that lie ahead. Conflicts try to break her stride but although she is filled with pain, she still walks with confidence, and with a smile on her face.
When there is a world of distractions and difficult decisions to make, when a woman finds herself straying off the tracks, she will not feel defeated.
She is courageous!
She is victorious!
She is a pioneer! #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Self Confidence quotes by Raymond Chandler
#204. We have the whitest kitchens and the most shining bathrooms in the world. But in the lovely white kitchen the average [person] can't produce a meal fit to eat, and the lovely shining bathroom is mostly a receptacle for deodorants, laxatives, sleeping pills, and the products of that confidence racket called the cosmetic industry. We make the finest packages in the world, Mr Marlowe. The stuff inside is mostly junk. #Quote by Raymond Chandler

A lot of the motivation for doing the 'Make 'Em Laugh' on SNL was because I had just finished shooting 'Inception,' where there were zero-gravity scenes and I got into really good shape and was training and did all these stunts. Coming off of that, that instilled me with the confidence to do 'Make 'Em Laugh.' #Quote by Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Self Confidence quotes by Richard Siken
#215. For a while I thought I was the dragon.
I guess I can tell you that now. And, for a while, I thought I was
the princess,
cotton candy pink, sitting there in my room, in the tower of the castle,
young and beautiful and in love and waiting for you with
but the princess looks into her mirror and only sees the princess,
while I'm out here, slogging through the mud, breathing fire,
and getting stabbed to death.
Okay, so I'm the dragon. Big deal.
You still get to be the hero.
You get magic gloves! A fish that talks! You get eyes like flashlights! #Quote by Richard Siken

Self Confidence quotes by Epictetus

Self Confidence quotes by Eric Hoffer
#218. No totalitarian censor can approach the implacability of the censor who controls the line of communication between the outer world and our consciousness.

Self Confidence quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#220. It is only by hearsay (by word of mouth passed down from generation to generation) that whole peoples adore the God of their fathers and of their priests: authority, confidence, submission and custom with them take the place of conviction or of proofs: they prostrate themselves and pray, because their fathers taught them to prostrate themselves and pray: but why did their fathers fall on their knees? #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Self Confidence quotes by Brad Warner
#223. Buddhists have a long-standing tradition of believing that at some level we always know what the best course of action is in any given situation.

Self Confidence quotes by James Martin
#224. [Joy] does not ignore pain in the world, in another's life or in one's own life. Rather, it goes deeper, seeing confidence in God - and for Christians, in Jesus Christ - as the reason for joy and a constant source of joy. #Quote by James Martin
Self Confidence quotes by Boris Pasternak
#225. The main misfortune, the root of all the evil to come, was the loss of confidence in the value of one's own opinion. People imagined that it was out of date to follow their own moral sense, that they must all sing in chorus, and live by other people's notions, notions that were being crammed down everybody's throat. #Quote by Boris Pasternak
Self Confidence quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#226. His work is as it were, a sacred object and the true fruit of his life, and his aim in storing it away for a more discerning posterity will be to make it the property of mankind. An aim like this far surpasses all others, and for it he wears the crown of thorns which is one day to bloom into a wreath of laurel. All his powers are concentrated in the effort to complete and secure his work; just as the insect, in the last stage of its development, uses its whole strength on behalf of a brood it will never live to see; it puts its eggs in some place of safety, where, as it well knows, the young will one day find life and nourishment, and then dies in confidence. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Self Confidence quotes by Brennan Manning
#227. Only reckless confidence in a Source greater than ourselves can empower us to forgive the woulds inflicted by others. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Self Confidence quotes by Emilyann Allen

Self Confidence quotes by Joseph Hooker
#229. To tell the truth, I just lost confidence in Joe Hooker. #Quote by Joseph Hooker
Self Confidence quotes by Adam Smith
#230. Commerce and manufactures can seldom flourish long in any state which does not enjoy a regular administration of justice, in which the people do not feel themselves secure in the possession of their property, in which the faith of contracts is not supported by law, and in which the authority of the state is not supposed to be regularly employed in enforcing the payment of debts from all those who are able to pay. Commerce and manufactures, in
short, can seldom flourish in any state in which there is not a certain degree of confidence in the justice of government. #Quote by Adam Smith
Self Confidence quotes by Maya Banks
#231. This is better than a romance novel." P.J. said with a wistful sigh.
"You read that stuff?" Cole demanded.
"Why the hell do you ask the question like that?" P.J. said, annoyance evident in her tone and expression.
"You just didn't seem the type," Cole mumbled.
She flipped him the bird, and Shea had to bite her lip to keep from laughing. P.J. was easily half Cole's size but she also looked like she had the confidence to take on the much larger man. She might even kick his ass. The idea intrigued Shea greatly.
"I'm tempted to shove one of my romance novels up your ass." P.J. said sharply. "But I love my books too much to desecrate them like that, I'll settle for my boot."
Cole held up his hands in surrender. "I won't say another word. Romance novels are great. I love romance novels. I think everyone should read them. #Quote by Maya Banks
Self Confidence quotes by Meryl Streep
#232. I think you find your own way. You have your own rules. You have your own understanding of yourself, and that's what you're going to count on. In the end, it's what feels right to you. Not what your mother told you. Not what some actress told you. Not what anybody else told you but the still, small voice. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Self Confidence quotes by Michelle Obama
#233. This may be the fundamental problem with caring a lot about what others think: It can put you on the established path--the my-isn't that-impressive path--and keep you there for a long time. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Self Confidence quotes by Ellen J. Barrier
#234. We move forward by having confidence within ourselves, with hope for a greater purpose. #Quote by Ellen J. Barrier
Self Confidence quotes by James Richardson
#235. They say productivity is the key to confidence, and confidence ... to productivity. And they're happy walking back and forth between these two rooms, each the excuse for the other. #Quote by James Richardson
Self Confidence quotes by Ben Bernanke
#236. The crisis in Europe has affected the U.S. economy by acting as a drag on our exports, weighing on business and consumer confidence, and pressuring U.S. financial markets and institutions. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Self Confidence quotes by Marc Faber
#237. I believe that the market is slowly waking up to the fact that the Federal Reserve is a clueless organization. They have no idea what they're doing. And so the confidence level of investors is diminishing, in my view. #Quote by Marc Faber
