Slow down, find a moment for yourself, relax and think about the following sentences – certainly, some of them already are a part of your life. Here are some beautiful, inspirational and uplifting quotes about trusting yourself and about the urgent need to take care of yourself.

Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.

Mark Victor Hansen

What holds us from acting? Job? Children? No time? Well no. It’s we, ourselves. We find thousands of excuses, still waiting for the right moment. We think that when the new year comes or when we find a new job, we will start all over again, while nothing changes. It’s worth taking the above words to heart and understanding that the right moment begins „just now”.

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Self-confidence is crucial. I believe, deep down, we all know how to live. Unfortunately, the world does everything to cut us off from our inner voice – intuition.  It is hard to focus on yourself when messages and notifications bombard us from everywhere and when we talk to several people at once. Believe it or not, there is no human being that can stand it. We often don’t even realize how being constantly connected to the mass media affects our nervous system and impacts our mental condition. What we have to do is disconnect, calm down and listen to ourselves. Then, as the above quote tells us, we will realize that we know more than we think and more than we can read from Facebook.

Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.

Brené Brown

If only we could treat ourselves as we treat people close to us, most of our problems would disappear. The truth is they often result from our internal frustrations. Learn to notice yourself and treat yourself with kindness and tenderness. We should pay more attention to how we treat our minds and bodies. We are with ourselves every day, 24 hours a day. Wouldn’t it be better to be a friend to yourself instead of an enemy?

You yourself, as much as anyone in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Buddha

This quote strongly connects to the above. Even more clearly tells us about how much, almost desperately, we need ourselves first. As soon as this thought is permanently rooted in our consciousness, we will not allow ourselves to be hurt anymore. We will begin to attract only the best in our lives. To be able to share the love with others, we must find love within ourselves. You can’t pour from an empty cup. It’s a great metaphor that learns us how to treat ourselves.

If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.

T. Harv Eker

From the appearance to the career we are still comparing ourselves with others. We compare ourselves, sometimes we even compare to others our loved ones. What does this give us? Decreased self-esteem, depressed mood, jealousy, and anger. Well, it sounds quite sad, isn’t it? So how can we change our attitude? Just realize that comparing yourself is way to nowhere. Each of us has his own destiny, we all have different experiences, different factors impact on us. What unites us is the fact that we are all equally tired, lost and uncertain. The truth is we are stronger, smarter and better than we think. We can never forget about it.

You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief that you can’t have it.

Dr. Robert Anthony

Deserving. It’s an essential aspect of achievements and success. If you don’t believe that you deserve to be happy, safe, enjoy wealth and good health, then it will never be part of our life. Fortunately, you can easily change your attitude. Just open yourself to the possibility that you are worth the best. All you have to do is experience the richness of this world. Sometimes we stick to the painful past, not giving ourselves the chance for a genuine change. Meanwhile, the best is just waiting for our sign and permission to finally become an element of our lives.
