Self-confidence quotes

‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid’ – Albert Einstein

Over the weeks as I have looked for quotes to use in my blog, I’ve found lots on the subject of self-confidence, some of which I wanted to share with you. As I get older, I realise I am becoming more confident in things that I never used to be, but less so in some of the things that I once was. Sometimes reading a quote gives me the boost I need – I hope it does for you too! Why not pick your favourite and repeat it to yourself every day as your tiny tweak?!
