These 12 Quotes Will Give You An Instant Confidence Boost, Guaranteed (PHOTOS)


The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

A little boost of confidence has never hurt anyone. Compliments, smiles and mantras can all help to make us feel good about ourselves -- and as a result, push us to be our most successful selves. You might not expect to find any of this in the cut-throat world of fashion, yet many designers have some inspiring advice about being true to yourself -- and believing in your strengths. Want proof? Click through the slideshows for some confidence-boosting words of wisdom.
