“To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.” – Denis Waitley

“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.” – Andrew Matthews

“Our self-respect tracks our choices. Every time we act in harmony with our authentic self and our heart, we earn our respect. It is that simple. Every choice matters.” – Dan Coppersmith

“People may flatter themselves just as much by thinking that their faults are always present to other people’s minds, as if they believe that the world is always contemplating their individual charms and virtues.” – Elizabeth Gaskell

“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” – Benjamin Spock

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.” – Lao-Tzu

“People who want the most approval get the least and the people who need approval the least get the most.” – Wayne Dyer

“There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” – Hindu Proverb

“I found in my research that the biggest reason people aren’t more self-compassionate is that they are afraid they’ll become self-indulgent. They believe self-criticism is what keeps them in line. Most people have gotten it wrong because our culture says being hard on yourself is the way to be.” – Kristen Neff

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” – Marilyn Monroe

“The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.” – Mark Twain

“When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t.” – Jodi Picoult

“People who want the most approval get the least and the people who need approval the least get the most.” – Wayne Dyer

“You are a true success if you can trust yourself, love yourself, and be yourself.”

“It isn’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.”

“Find the love you seek, by first finding the love within yourself. Learn to rest in that place within you that is your true home.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

“You are not an option, a choice or a soft place to land after a long battle. You were meant to be the one. If you can wrap yourself around the idea that you are something incredible, then you will stop excusing behavior that rapes your very soul. You were never meant to teach someone to love you. You were meant to be loved.”

“Learn from all, but copy none and just be yourself.” – Innocent Mwatsikesimbe

“Believing in yourself means more than simply believing in your own ultimate success; it means believing you will survive failures, disappointments, rejections, and criticism and still persist.” – Richelle E. Goodrich

“Talent does not search for the person, in fact the person needs to search for the talent inside him and take it out to show the world.” – Unarine Ramaru

“Self care, self love. Self esteem, self confidence.” – Lailah Gifty Akita

“Lack of self-confidence is, more often than not, simple laziness. We feel confused and uncertain because we do not know. But instead of making the effort to investigate, we procrastinate and worry. We tell ourselves we can’t instead of learning how we can. If we used the mental energy we expend in worry and fear to get out and find out about what we do not know, we would see our self-confidence grow. Lack of self-confidence is not overcome by faith, but by action. It is a lack, not of certainty, but of effort. Too often we are certain that we can’t before we give ourselves a fair chance.” – Laurence G. Boldt

“Putting in effort is like riding a bicycle on train tracks, you will get to where you want to go but you will feel every bump along the way.” – Davis Levy

“I always agree with whom, who agree with me.” –  Mohammad Rishad sakhi
