  • As part of our #BREAKFREE from likes campaign, we’ve rounded up the most inspiring celebrity quotes about self-confidence

    It’s week two of our #BREAKFREE campaign and this week we’ve been examining our dependence on other people’s approval. We believe that online or off, being ‘liked’ by others shouldn’t be our driving force. Liking ourselves should be.

    We’ve spoken a range of women throughout the week, to explore what it means to be liked, without compromising yourself. And we’ve been posting empowering celebrity quotes and stories from business women and bloggers, on the @marieclaireuk Instagram account every day this week.

    If you’d like to share their comments, that’s fine by us. Simply save the images below, and Instagram / Tweet or Facebook them, along with the hashtag #BREAKFREE.

    From Ryan Gosling to Tyra Banks, here are our top pick of inspiring celebrity quotes on self-confidence…

    Coco Chanel: ‘I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.’

    Venus Williams: ‘You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.’

    Tyra Banks: ‘Never dull your shine for somebody else.’

    Emma Watson: ‘All I can do is follow my instincts, because I’ll never please everyone.’

    Ryan Gosling: ‘I’ve learned it’s important not to limit yourself. You can do whatever you really love to do, no matter what it is.’
