Sometimes I just need a boost. I’m frustrated, I’m stressed, zero self-esteem and my inner-critic is being particular harsh. When I’m feeling like this, it’s tempting to stay in this frame of mind. I say tempting because it feels as if it will take an impossible amount of effort to change my perception.
So I leave it up to somebody else. I don’t try to think of anything original, upbeat, creative or inspiring. I cheat. Over time, I have accumulated dozens of self-esteem quotes. Some are from household names, others are anonymous.
Regardless of the author, I can feel the heaviness in my gut begin to lift with each one I read. Sooner than later, I feel the faith in myself restored to the point where I actually believe a bit in my talents. The only problem with quotes like this are you can never read just one… Kinda’ like potato chips.
So please let me share some of my favorite self-esteem quotes with you. Some are funny, some are thought-provoking, some grab at your heart. But they will all give your self-esteem a boost and remind you to have faith in yourself.
