Confidence Booster

Updated: Jan 11

Welcome to the fourth Win STEM blog of this year! Low self-esteem isn’t uncommon in our modern society. Motivation is an absolute necessity, regardless of the roadblocks we face, whether that means a family problem, a personal issue, or anything related to academics or our workplace. It is absolutely necessary to believe in ourselves and know that each day of hardship builds us to be stronger than before. Don’t compare yourself to other individuals in our society, we all have different, unheard stories that we have yet to share to the world. Everyone has a different journey and has faced their own share of obstacles. It is up to us to be a beam of positivity in the world, with the self-confidence we possess and the confidence we inspire in others.


Knowing how stressful and tough the past few months have been to everyone, we decided to reach out to students, volunteers, and friends for a list of inspirational quotes. Here is the list of our community’s favorite motivational sayings, quotes, or hymns:


“Wherever you go, remember that you will strive in your fields of success and find your aspiration to become one who will create an impact.”

“Think BIG.”

“Obstacles are the cost of greatness.” - Robin Sharma

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela

“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” -Barack Obama

“I’ve always had to struggle and fight, and that’s made me strong. It’s made me who I am.” - Zuko, Avatar the Last Airbender

“Your dream doesn’t have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again.” - KT Witten

“We tend to live life by the ‘rules’. We conform, change ourselves, hide our mishaps and differences because we want to fit in. Instead of letting society change who we are, let’s join together and change society.”

“Make your life a masterpiece; imagine no limitations on what you can be, have or do.” - Brian Tracy

“Sometimes we’re tested not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths.” - unknown

“You’re never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” - C.S. Lewis

“ Act as if what you do makes a difference, It does.” - William James

“Take one step at a time and before you know it, you’ve walked miles.”

“Be the flower that gives its fragrance even to the hand that crushes it.” - Ali RA

“Every heartache and suffering that plagues your body and you, your heart pulls you to the everlasting home.” - Rumi

“The pain will be born from that look cast inside yourself, and this pain will make you go beyond the veil.” - Mathnawi

“You are yourself the cloud veiling your own sun, so recognize the essential reality of your being.” - Ibn Arabi

“You are only as limited as your imagination. Don’t think about what others say is impossible, but constantly pursue what you dream is possible.”

“Don’t let your age define your ability to pursue your dreams. If you want it bad enough, you will achieve it.”

“Just because something is hard, it does not mean that it is impossible to achieve. Like everything in life, all it takes is hard work and determination. As Fred DeVito said, ‘if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you’.”

“A champion isn’t defined by how many times they have succeeded, but rather how many times they have faced failure and still rise up to try again."

At times, motivational quotes and sayings from renowned people have allowed us to feel inspired and reach our goals, with the possibility that anything can be achieved by anyone despite the circumstances they are in. No limitations should be posed as obstacles for finding your future, so don’t just stop here. Innovate, experiment, make mistakes, and learn from them because, in the end, they are the pathway to your destination.
