Self Confidence Quotes

What's Your WheelchairI’m a big fan of reading self confidence quotes for a self confidence boost. Out of the thousands I have collected over the years, I’d like to share a few of my favorites. Notice the variety of authors… They come from all walks of life.

Movie stars, first ladies, philosophers, entertainers, inventors and a baseball coach.  Through their life experiences, they’ve had many lessons learned to achieve the success they have today. Enjoy!  (My favorite is #13. It’s the one I feel the most related to.)
