INTRODUCTION

 

What is confidence? It is the ability to believe in oneself and one’s capabilities. It is the feeling of being right in your decision and action despite whatever the external circumstances are.

While some people seem to have it naturally, many struggle to be confident with their decisions and actions. 

A lack of it affects our emotional and mental well-being. It might transform us into pessimists, we’ll have trouble dealing with failure and we’ll experience social anxiety and automatically gets more stressed.

On the other hand, there seems to be a fine line between confidence and arrogance. As Adam Peaty said, “There is a very thin line between confidence and arrogance.” Arrogance is actually false confidence and it’s usually destructive.

Following quotes can help you to develop confidence. Quotes help read what great people have to talk about confidence
