Merriam Webster defines “self confidence” as “confidence in oneself and in one's powers and abilities."


Wikipedia tells us that Professor Raj Persaud posts that true self-confidence comes from an attitude where you: “Promise yourself, no matter how difficult the problem life throws at you, that you will try as hard as you can to help yourself. You acknowledge that sometimes your efforts to help yourself may not result in success, as often being properly rewarded is not in your control”

Self esteem  has been directly connected to an individual's social network, the activities they participate in, and what they hear about themselves from others.


Positive self-esteem has been linked to factors such as psychological health, mattering to others, and both body image and physical health. On the contrary, low self-esteem has been associated with the outcomes of depression, health problems, and antisocial behavior.

Here are some quotes about self-confidence:

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~e.e. cummings
