25 quotes to inspire you to have confidence in yourself

In my book, 10 Steps to #DefineYourself: How to succeed in life despite any obstacle, the fifth step to overcoming a challenge, obstacle, adversity, limitation or setback and begin to succeed in life is to have confidence in yourself.

Life can be difficult especially if you are trying to overcome an “it”, trying to make a change or trying something new in your life.  I believe that no one has ever achieved success without the support, encouragement and the help of others.

Having a healthy amount of self—confidence can give you the boost you need to succeed!
