Self-confidence quotes

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ― Rob Siltanen

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” – Rumi, The Essential Rumi

“Always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it.” – Bruce Lee

“If you’re presenting yourself with confidence, you can pull off pretty much anything.” Katy Perry

“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” Wayne Dyer
