Belief Quotes For Those Who Believe They Deserve It

Belief is to give credence, have confidence in someone or accept if something is true without proof. It is said that ‘what you believe is what you attract.’ The universe loves believers and you can achieve whatever you aim for, if you believe in yourself. Belief in yourself, trusting your instincts, being patient, trusting your abilities and having faith are the ingredients to success. The law of attraction states that ‘if you believe in something, it has no choice but to materialize.’ So when you see your faith shaking and the world seems dark just ‘Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.’ We have rounded some thought-provoking and inspiring quotes and sayings shared by eminent personalities, motivational speakers, celebrities, philosophers, artists, writers and extraordinary thinkers that will remind you of what you are capable of achieving if you believe in yourself. Zoom through the compilation of insightful and noteworthy quotes and thoughts that will bring up your spirits at times when you lack self-belief and feel the urge to give up.

But I do not believe that the world would be entirely different if there were more women leaders.
