I think that one of the key character traits of a person is confidence. Lucky me, that I lack in this area…
A lot of problems arise from a lack of confidence. A low self esteem leads to worrying, doubting yourself, envying others, anxiety, low quality of life, etc. I definetly want to work on my confidence and believe more in myself and my abilites.
So here is a collection of 10 quotes to motivate me (and you) to work on confidence!
