In light of this month’s theme, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite quotes about self-confidence. I know first hand how rewarding it is to receive positive reinforcement, and many times, I look for it in inspirational quotes like the ones I have outlined below.

If you have times when your confidence is low, please know you’re not alone. Of course, we all need some simple reminders of this truth. We need something or someone to derail us from this negative thinking so we can retrain our brains to accept the positive truth about our potential for greatness.

So, to remind you that who you already are is pretty incredible, and to inspire you to become even more awesome — here are some of my favorite quotes about self-confidence.
