Whether you’re feeling down or looking for a daily pick-me-up, quotes are a great way to shake off laziness and get a grip on your productivity.
Just yesterday, I was feeling sluggish and making all the excuses in the world to not work on my blog.
So, I decided to browse some quotes to give me a push. Next thing I know, I’m writing this blog post (lol!).
Anyhow, I wanted to share with you all some of my absolute favorite quotes to encourage and motivate women around the world.
11 Most Powerful Quotes To Motivate and Encourage Women
Below, I’ve put together 11 motivational quotes to brighten your day- spoken from some of the most inspiring and talented women in the world.
Feel free to pin the images in this post and share!
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #1:
“I love the person I’ve become because I fought to become her.” – Kaci Diane
When I first came across this quote by Kaci Diane, it felt like she was speaking directly to me.
So simple yet powerful, this quote has helped me get through some of my crucial beginner blogger days.
I used to be so hard on myself for not accomplishing enough in life and wished I had done more sooner.
But what I failed to realize was how far I’ve come, given the obstacles I’ve endured along the way.
Whether it be your past relationships, the career choices you’ve made, or overcoming any obstacles in life, only you know the difficulties you have endured to be where and who you are today.
Think about it- just take a minute to look back and reflect on your life. Where were you two years ago? Six months ago? Last month?
Now, look at yourself today. Only you know how far you’ve come: All the hardships, the battles, the long, sleepless nights, the tears…
But at this very moment, you are more wiser, braver, stronger and you simply are…you.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #2:
“She believed she could, so she did.” – Unknown
A common obstacle most women face in life is self-doubt.
Truth is, often times we don’t give ourselves enough credit for our efforts. And pressure from family, friends or society can play an active role in this thought process.
But how can we expect others to believe in us, when we don’t have faith in ourselves?
It’s been long established that there’s immense power in self-confidence. In fact, some of the most successful female leaders in the world continue to make history because they realized their self-worth and believed in their path.
If you, too, want to reach your full potential and achieve your goals, start with three key principles: Be honest with yourself, value yourself and don’t let fear stop you.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #3:
“I want to see what happens if I don’t give up.” – Unknown
Again, this quote relates to my blogging journey (most of them do lol).
Truth be told, blogging is hard work and hasn’t come easy.
But the hard work is what has made it all worth it: I am my own boss, I get to set my own hours and can literally work from anywhere in the world (currently living in Mexico).
Whether you’ve been thinking about changing careers, shedding those extra pounds, or whatever may be your goals– try your best to work towards them daily and little by little.
The key is to keep up the positive momentum, even when tough times make you feel like quitting.
Believe in yourself, it’ll all be so worth it!
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #4:
“It hurts to let go, but sometimes it hurts more to hold on.” – Unknown
Letting go is never easy. Clinging on to a job you absolutely hate, continuing friendships with toxic people, or holding on to memories from a past relationship- we’ve all been through it.
I myself was a creature of habit when I held a job as a bank manager. Though I was miserable, jaded and lacked motivation, I was nervous to make a career change because I was afraid of the unknown.
Until one morning, I quit my job on a whim and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made!
The thing is, we find comfort in what’s familiar and get so set in our ways that we resist change.
But if you truly want to find ultimate happiness and peace, you must learn to part ways with whomever or whatever is holding you back from becoming the best possible version of yourself.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #5:
“Choose a career you love and you’ll never have to work again.” – Unknown
Have I already mentioned this?– I absolutely LOVE what I do!
Granted, as a full-time blogger, there have been days where I’ve pulled 19-hour shifts, drank only water all day, had sleepless nights, and absolutely no social life.
Nonetheless, I’ve loved every bit of it.
When you love what you do, it truly doesn’t feel like ‘work.’ But rather, it’s filled with excitement, an eagerness to learn new things, and also uncertainty (in a good way).
New challenges keep me on my toes and allow me to learn new techniques and strategies.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #6:
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” – Suzy Kassem
Here’s another powerful quote to motivate and encourage women to follow their dreams.
I’d be lying if I said my career paths haven’t scared me.
From managing at a reputable bank, to starting my very first online clothing business, and now blogging full-time– I can say it’s been a scary road.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned along the way, it’s that I wouldn’t be where I am today had I not taken those chances and risks.
So don’t be afraid of challenges! It’ll only make you stronger.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #7:
“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton
This quote by Dolly Parton took me back to when I first started my online business and my sales nosedived; I nearly went broke.
It was a very difficult time for me as I was trying everything I could (or I thought I was), to recover my losses.
But shortly after, I realized that running any business comes with a fair share of advantages and disadvantages.
Regardless, I didn’t allow that experience to stop me from taking further risks.
It actually taught me to become more resilient.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #8:
“It’s possible to climb to the top without stomping on other people.” – Taylor Swift
I firmly believe that by performing good deeds, it brings ultimate happiness to our hearts.
And no one loses when it comes to kindness.
So let’s work together by uplifting and supporting eachother!
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #9:
“You can fall, but you can rise also.” – Unknown
You know what song comes to mind whenever I read this quote? Aaliyah’s “Try Again” (RIP baby girl).
I was in high school when this song first came out, and it got me through some of the most difficult times as a teen.
Having said that, this quote couldn’t have been more true. There have been multiple times in my life where I felt like giving up.
Yet something in my heart told me to keep going…
And I did.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #10:
“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” – Estee Lauder
Everyone has their own definition of success.
Do I consider myself successful? In some ways, yes.
However, success is an ongoing journey for me. As long as I have ambitions in life, I will continue to meet new stages of success.
At any rate, I know how hard I’ve worked for ‘my’ success and it’s all been worth it.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE #11:
“I’d rather regret the things I’ve done, than regret the things I haven’t.” – Lucille Ball
If you’d ask me one thing I’m proud of, I’d say this:
I am proud of not regretting some major (and questionable) decisions I’ve made in the past.
And mind you, I’ve taken many risks- dumb ones, too.
But they’ve all been a learning experience for me and have shaped who I am today: an ambitious women who knows what she wants, and will go at any (legal) length to achieve it.
