Noble and great. Courageous and determined. Faithful and fearless. That is who you are and who you have always been. And understanding it can change your life because this knowledge carries a confidence that cannot be duplicated any other way.

Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.

Allen Cohen

Oprah

Think like a queen. A queen if not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness. 

Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Zig Ziglar

You are the only person on earth who can use your ability. 

Mark Victor Hansen

Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. 

Dalai Lama

With the realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world. 

Jo Blackwell-Preston

Don’t you dare, for one more second, surround yourself with people who are not aware of the greatness that you are.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
