Read these quotes next time your self confidence gets kicked to the curb


We all have days when everything seems to be going wrong. Your last shoot sucked, you lost a client, or you just feel meh and think all your photos are shite. I usually curl up in the fetal position with a 500gm jar of Nutella and watch One Tree Hill.

I also find reading these quotes (while eating Nutella) really help.

Here are a few of my faves. Enjoy.

“It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.” ~ W.C. Fields

“I never loved another person the way I loved myself.”~ Mae West

“I used to be self conscious about my height, but then I thought, f*** that, I’m Harry Potter. ~ Daniel Radcliffe

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” ~ Marianne Williamson

“Having a low opinion of yourself is not ‘modesty’. It’s self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not ‘egotism’. It’s a necessary precondition to happiness and success.” ~ Bobbe Sommer

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

“Someone else’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.” ~ Les Brown

What’s your go-to feel-better hack?

    Thanks for the quotes. I am going to use some on my blog. I send out four quotes a day which I think are pretty good. Many of my viewers like them and some even archive them. I have been doing this for years, but the last year’s worth (+/-) can be seen here.

    STATUS QUOtes –

    Like your offerings, many of these are inspirational and/or thought provoking.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    Regards, J. Ross
