33 Beyoncé Knowles Quotes About Confidence and Finding Your Self-Worth

Beyonce rose to fame in the 90s as the lead singer with the girl group ‘Destiny’s Child’, although her musical career started long before that as she took part in many singing and dancing competitions as a child. While taking a break from the band, she embarked on a career in acting, starring alongside Mike Myers in ‘Austin Powers in Goldmember’ as well as reinventing herself as a solo artist.

Her astounding success gave her another direction to go in, however, and she began campaigning for causes which are close to her heart; she founded the Survivor Foundation for victims of Hurricane Katrina, and helped to work towards female empowerment through the Chime for Change campaign. Using her music as a platform for these issues, her song ‘Flawless’ includes a line from a speech by NIgerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie which reads ‘we should all be feminists’.

Humility and pushing yourself harder are themes which appear in many Beyonce quotes, and every one of them will inspire you to be the best version of yourself, while also remembering to practice self-love. If you need some wise words to propel yourself forward and reach for what you want, these quotes should be written on your mirror!
