20 Inspirational & Motivational Quotes For When You Need a Confidence Boost

Sometimes you just need a pick me up! You know, something to brighten your day, give you a boost and make you smile, when you just can't think of a reason to. Usually I head over to  a social media page and I go on my favourite accounts that are filled with inspirational quotes. I also try to incorporate some sort of positivity quotes on my instagram and twitter and I thought why not share the kind of things that make me feel a THOUSAND TIMES BETTER!

I always take the time to meditate on each one and think about how it can apply to an area of my life I find problematic. Often times, when I've done this, it would make me see how BIG of an impact i'm letting that, sometimes, small problem overshadow my feeling of confidence. I know its just words and it's not going to ultimately change your confidence, but it will, help.. at least for now. I realised that confidence is all in the mind, so keeping your mind, focussed on positivity is in fact what will help and these inspirational affirmations are a start!

Below I hand-picked a bunch of quotes that are very inspiring!

  1. Breathe. It's just a bad day, not a bad life.
  2. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
  3. Have confidence in your own decisions. No one knows what's best for you besides yourself.
  4. Before you give up, think about all the people that would like to see you fail.
  5. Take the time to see and appreciate what you have.
  6. I'm going to make the rest of my life the best of my life.
  7. Unfair things happen but you have come too far to let setbacks stop you from stepping forward. Leave it all behind you.

  9. Do today what others don't, so tomorrow you can have others won't.
  10. Positive thinking leads to positive outcomes.
  11. Don't let your emotions make your decisions.
  12. Before you give up, think about why you held on for so long.
  13. Do what is right, not what is easy.
  14. The key to happiness and success: dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people.
  15. Count your blessings, not your problems.
  16. When your mind says give up, hope whispers one more try.
  17. If you really want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't you'll find an excuse 
  18. Laugh every chance you get, life is too short not to be happy.
  19. Do something everyday that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.
