Affirmations for Confidence

Confidence, at its root, is simply possessing a deep and convincing belief in yourself. Confidence is knowing that whatever you do, and whatever happens in your life, in the end, you are going to be all right.

Now for whatever reason, many people don’t believe in themselves. In fact, most people doubt themselves, and have a deep mistrust of what they are capable of. It’s unfortunate too, because this lack of confidence can impact the quality our lives in very real and tangible ways.
