Be Empowered | Quotes & Tips

As I'm sure you're well aware, based on the copious amounts of posts about it all over social media, today is International Women's Day! In the spirit of this lovely and inspiring day, I want to take this chance to make sure every women that stumbles across my little old blog feels how they deserve to- empowered. Below are a few of my favorite quotes to help you feel empowered and tips in order to actually be.


1. The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you've come.

2. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. 
Eleanor Roosevelt

3. You will never influence the world by trying to be like it.

4. Behind every successful woman is herself.

5. Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.

6. There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.
W.E.B Dubois

7. She's got that whole purpose-driven-warrior-princess-save the world type vibe.

8. You go girl!


Focus on Yourself
Make time to get to know who you really are, to take care of yourself, and to be the center of your attention every once and awhile. With a world filled with too many naysayers and negativity, having taken the time to build yourself up will leave you stronger and able to withstand it all. While you should surround yourself with positive energy and a support system, it is important to be able to manage the bad yourself, since after all you know yourself better than anyone. So take that time for your development.

Lift Up Others
This world is filled with people, so you are never alone. People will always surround you and how you interact with them can make all of the difference. So encourage, support, and be there for others. Progress happens from positivity.

No Excuses
It is too easy to fall back on excuses. When things aren't ideal, it's elementary to try to make reason of them by coming to some sort of conclusion from the circumstance. However, often times they lack validity or reason; and thus an excuse it born. Cut excuses out asap because they not only serve no benefit to the bettering of yourself, but also hinder your capability.

Dream it, Do it
As the old saying goes, "If you can dream it, you can do it." Have faith in that. Know that you are capable of applying yourself enough to turn those dreams into plans. Don't fear failure or falling;  instead learn to leap.
