Hello! Does anyone else love finding quotes that really resonate with whatever it is you’re feeling? There’s something about finding a quote that feels just right. It confirms for you that you are not alone – others have felt and are feeling the very same thing. Quotes work well to summarize our feelings into a short, well-spoken statement. When times are hard, we could all use a little self empowerment. I searched the web and found some of my favorite self empowerment quotes. Which one resonates the most with you?
“You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.” – Stephen King
“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” – George Eliot
“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” – Steve Maraboli
“You just can’t let life happen to you, you have to make life happen.” – Idowu Koyenikan
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson
“Even in the loneliest moments, I have been there for myself.” – Sanober Khan
“Everything is within your power, and your power is within you.” – Janice Trachtman
“No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them.” – Maeve Greyson
“Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.” – Langston Hughes
“Stop giving people the power to steal your peace. It belongs to you and no one should be able to run away with it.” – A. Elle
“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” – Mary Kay Ash
Which one of these quotes (or a favorite of your own!) resonates with you and motivates you? Use these words as a reminder that you are enough, just as you are.
