Need a boost? Who doesn’t when it comes to these two…
In this article we’re going to go through some empowering words to ruminate on that will help you better manage your confidence and happiness levels. If you were looking for quotes that lower your self-image and make you sad…sorry, but you can find that just about everywhere you look on the internet. Try the forums.
Here we go…
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
― Lao Tzu
I love this quote because instead of having to achieve something to build yourself up, you get to be lazy and more effectively become confident by simply getting out of your own way.
There are endless quotes on happiness, here’s a different angle…
“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Diary
This one might not make you jump for joy but it’s useful all the same. It reminds us to live in the moment. Be present, and in your happier moments, you will have trained your mind to identify what it took to get there.
Self Inspirational Quotes
Feeling unmotivated or searching for creative inspiration?
Here is something to help.
“You limitation – it’s only your imagination”
Mental conceptions of limitations are, literally, imaginary limitations. Your imagination is powerful, not matter how creative you see yourself as. If you don’t think so, try not to imagine a purple cow. And then don’t imagine a ninja riding it. Finally, don’t imagine throwing a potato at the ninja. I’m guessing you’ve never actually done that. If you had, you’d be dead, because he’s a ninja. The point is, you have to manage your imagination, or it will manage you.
Self Quotes About Me
Need something to tell yourself?
“The single most powerful thing I can be is to be myself.”
― Dwayne Johnson
This is the epitome of self-ownership. No one can run your life better than you can. There’s simply no one more qualified for the job.
To go an extra step, make it a mantra. Mantras are how you apply every inspirational thing on your feed. The quote hooked your attention for a reason, so why not put it to good use?
Here’s a quote taken from Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, that makes for a good working mantra:
“I can live out of my imagination
Instead of my memory.
I can tie myself to my limitless potential
Instead of my limiting past.
I can become my own first creator.”
The concept here is that all things are created twice. A blueprint for a house is created before the house. An idea for a product happens before the product does.
Self Worth Quotes for Relationships
Relationships are difficult and strongly affect our self worth. Because the other’s happiness affects us so profoundly, we tend to think that both parties are responsible. When the other is unhappy we tend to look down on ourselves. Here’s what Will Smith had to say on the matter.
“You can not make a person happy,
you can make a person smile,
you can make a person feel good,
you can make a person laugh.
but whether or not a
person is happy is deeply
and totally and utterly
out of your control.
Every person is responsible for his or her
happiness, no one else can do it for you.”
Ironically, by practicing this, both parties become happier. Since this is a popular topic, here are some resources specifically on self-worth in relationships.
Funny Self Love Quotes
To end on an entertaining note…
“Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, “Oh crap, she’s up!”― Unknown
Works just fine for men too 🙂
Since we’re on the topic of self-love, confidence, and happiness then you might want to go further.
