9 Self-Motivating Quotes from Outstanding Women


This didn’t come from me but Beyonce declared that women do indeed run the world. You must admit that women are the strongest and sometimes most selfless creatures on this earth, who continue to amaze the world with their grab-the-world-by-the-lapels-attitude. Yes – part of that was from the late Maya Angelou and yes – I will be quoting more amazing women in this article. I like to think of myself as a subtle and low-key feminist, especially after watching Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s 2013 “We Should All be Feminists” Ted Talk. Women are mothers, wives, sisters, friends, caregivers, truth seekers, CEOs, secretaries, spiritualists, and so much more. I continue to try and empower my readers through this site, so I wanted to pull 9 inspiring and self motivating quotes from 9 outstanding women. Each and every woman I chose to list has their own individuality and has chose to live in an unapologetic way with little to no fears. They have broke down barriers all while being beautiful, stylish, and true to themselves. So like Erykah Badu said “Be you. Make sure you’re saying something when you’re saying something. It’s important to sound like you, to feel like you, to be like you. Be you.” Check out the rest of the fulfilling quotes below.


“Instead of letting your hardships and failures discourage or exhaust you, let them inspire you. Let them make you even hungrier to succeed.” Michelle Obama (First Lady of the US and Former Lawyer)


“Integrate what you believe in every single area of your life. Take your heart to work and ask the most and best of everybody else, too.” Meryl Streep  (Actress, Activist, and Film Producer)


“Here is my wish and my desire and my pledge as well: that we remember our true nature and our womanhood. That we own and know that we are more than our bodies and yet our bodies are these sacred, beautiful, rhythmic houses for us.” Traci Ellis Ross (Actress, Former Model, and Comedian)


“Dreams are lovely. But they are just dreams. Fleeting, ephemeral, pretty. But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that makes things happen. It’s hard work that creates change.” Shonda Rhimes (Television Producer, Writer, and Screenwriter)


” “Why the fuck not me?” should be your motto ” Mindy Kaling (Actress, Writer, and Comedian)


“I don’t judge others. I say if you feel good with what you’re doing, let your freak flag fly.” Sarah Jessica Parker  (Actress, Producer, Designer, True New Yorker and everyone’s fairy style godmother)
