Words of wisdom from powerful women

Here are some more powerful quotes from some of our favourite heroines to remind you of how much of a female boss you are…

Culture

Do you sometimes find your mind is shrouded by clouded thoughts and doubt as to what your next move should be? Life gets that way sometimes. So, rather than resigning yourself to negativity, the maxim ‘if life gives you lemons, make lemonade’, is a great reminder that things can (usually) be turned around for the better.

With that in mind, here are six quotes to help you through everything from your career to confidence.

Body image

“Focus on what makes you feel healthy and strong. Is it eating healthy? Is it overcoming your embarrassment and taking that hip-hop booty shaking class (Yep, did it)? Is it carving out time for yourself to go on a walk and quiet your mind? Feeling healthy and strong are achievable in our daily life. This increases a positive feeling towards oneself which can help change an unwanted outlook.” - Sandra Oh

Compassion

"Present yourself in the way that you want to be received. What I mean is, aim to have humility and everyone will see that and respond to you in this way. Treat others in a positive and loving way." - Letitia Wright

Career

"What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfils you the rest will come." - Oprah Winfrey

Confidence quote by Adwoa Aboah

Setbacks

“When you lose, you get up, you make it better, you try again. That’s what I do in life, when I get down, when I get sick, I don’t want to just stop. I keep going and I try to do more. Everyone always says never give up, but you really must take that to heart and really do never definitely give up. Keep trying.” - Serena Williams

Self-worth

“Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.” - Beyoncé

Confidence

“Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.” - Adwoa Aboah
