There’s a great problem faced by people who rank very low on self-confidence, they’re constantly under the performance pressure to please everyone; there are also extremely accomplished and confident individuals who cannot find it in them to say no to certain people, intoxicating themselves into self-doubt. Unless it’s a case of blackmail, there arises no obligation to say yes beyond what your threshold is. Nothing’s worth more than the respect you have for yourself and here are nineteen quotes to back that up.

Like the Matt Damon says in We Bought A Zoo, “Sometimes, all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage, and I promise something great will come out of it.”

We all deserve happiness and not in some mediocre amount. So life has to be all about getting the most of it, isn’t it?
