27 quotes about self that’ll make you think

quotes about selfToday I thought it would be interesting to explore some quotes about self because we should never underestimate the importance of self. 

Self is the people we are, but it’s also the people we could be. The mountains we could climb and the things we could achieve, with a little self-belief, determination and hard work.

As human beings, we all have enormous potential but sadly, for many people, that potential is never fully realised.

Dear reader, believe in yourself and you could go a very long way indeed. Your potential is limitless. Other people succeed and so could you.

So be inspired then go and show the world your authentic self.

And please feel free to share these quotes or use them when you next have a presentation to do.
