  1. Slay.

Are you looking at a stressful day ahead with exams, projects or papers? Impress yourself and give it all you've got, slay it!

  1. No one can take your shine without your permission.

Your disposition is a state that you get to decide; don't let yourself be affected by what others say, once you do, that's when you give them the permission.

  1. Don't stumble over something behind you.

Focus on progress, the only time you should look back on the past is to learn from it. Don’t let mistakes hold you back from new opportunities.

  1. I believe in the person I want to become.

Trust in yourself, in your goals and where you want to grow as a person. Acceptance is key to confidence.

  1. Forget all the reasons why it won’t work and believe the one reason why it will.

Stay on a positive track and fuel yourself on the faith that what you’re doing is worth it and correct.

  1. Stop acting so small, you are the universe in ecstatic motion.

You are the creation and combination of wonderful things on this Earth, a miracle, so let that thought sink in because you are destined to do amazing things!

  1. True confidence leaves no room for jealousy. When you know you are great, you have no need to hate.

Confidence should come from a positive place. When you accept who you are, you don’t compare yourself with other people nor do you judge or degrade them.

  1. The first step in being successful is being a professional optimist.

There's always a positive side to every situation, you just have to look closely and focus on it.

  1. Today's forecast: 100% chance of winning.

When you believe you can win, you're already half way there.

  1. You don't need permission to be amazing.

Don't wait for affirmation of how talented you are, pretty you look or how you're rocking today's outfit. Believe that you already are because you simply do!

  1. If you want to improve your self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator.

Don't rely on what other people think of you, what you think of yourself is more important, so date yourself and nurture your own loving relationship.

  1. Embrace the glorious mess that you are.

All of your flaws and quirks that make up your unique, almost weird personality is what people will come to love. So should you.

  1. You don't need to be pretty like her you can be pretty like you.

Why bother looking like everyone else when you can stand out with your unique look?

  1. When life puts you in tough situations, don't say "Why me?" say "Try me."

Look at problems as an opportunity to rise to the challenge, believe that it was given to you because you have what it takes to overcome and excel.

  1. You don't have to post it to prove it.

Remember, the best moments don’t always make it to social media, and you don’t have to force it to be.
