30 Believe In Yourself Quotes To Untangle A Self-doubt Mentality

A list of believe in yourself quotes for when it’s hard to do so.

Look at the title of this post. Pretty cheesy, right?

You got to believe in yourself.” My 10-year-old niece and top-notch self-help gurus all say the same thing. So it’s probably a quote-to-live-by that you can’t question.

The problem is, it’s easier said than done. It’s easy to trust yourself when you landed a well-paid job. It’s easy to believe in your potential when you score straight A’s in the mid-term.

But how about the times when you feel like crap? When clients are impossible to book, when someone leaves a negative review on your new self-published book, or when all your best friends are all doing better than you in the finals. Will you still be able to say to yourself: I believe in me. I got this.

I can’t. I literally can’t. I doubt myself every single day. Deep down I know that being overly positive doesn’t get you anywhere.

But I also know that doing it while doubting it is like summiting Everest without your oxygen mask on. It doesn’t just slow you down, it destroys your chance of getting there.

That’s why I am such a quote hoarder. Those short, powerful sentences are like doses of motivation for me. When I doubt myself, I throw these “believe in yourself” quotes straight at my own damn face.

They are like self-reminders that scream “stop thinking and get back to work!”

They spike actions. And actions are what you need to eventually get what you want.

If you need something to break off your cycle of self-doubts, you’ll love these inspiring self-confidence quotes.
