13 More Quotes From Powerful Ladies
Last year I posted Quotes to help us connect with our divine femininity and Quotes from powerful ladies. I thought it would be nice for us to continue that tradition in 2023 with 13 more quotes from powerful ladies.
It’s always such a joy, to step out of our own realities and connect with other powerful women. To see what they’ve experienced through the words they share; what they feel and how they see the world we live in.
I believe there’s a quote here that will speak to everyone; looking forward to checking them out with you.
“One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.”– Sheila Murray Bethel
Because when you know yourself, you’ll know exactly what you want.

“We have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.” — Beyonce
And that’s the thing right? If we bring out our own potential; we inspire others — especially young ones. Imagine a world in which young girls grow up knowing they can do anything they put their minds on.
“Strong women don’t have ‘attitudes’, we have standards.” — Marilyn Monroe
Knowing what we want can sometimes be misunderstood as us being demanding. That’s simply not true. There’s a big difference between having an attitude and having standards.
“I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.” — Mary Wollstonecraft
It’s not about Men vs Women. That fight is a waste of time, it’s about Women becoming their true authentic selves. It’s about us encouraging each other and bringing out our full potential. To not be afraid. To be who you want to be.
“If you don’t like being a doormat then get off the floor.”– Al Anon

“It’s possible to climb to the top without stomping on other people.” – Taylor Swift
“Doubt is a killer. You just have to know who you are and what you stand for.” – Jennifer Lopez
Doubt really is like a virus. It can stop you from taking action and feeling like you’re not good enough. In the worst cases you might even feel like an Impostor. Check out my post on How to Overcome Impostor Syndrome if this sounds familiar.
“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. There is no yesterday, no tomorrow, it’s all the same day.” – Janis Joplin

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” — Oprah
Failure is indeed a part of success. When we take risks, we learn new things. Sometimes it doesn’t work out immediately but we move forward knowing way more than we did before.
I always tell people that failing builds resiliency. The first few times can be difficult; but the more you experiment and try new things the more you start noticing that failure is simply part of the process.
