“She Believed She Could So She Did” and “Wise Words from Black Icons” are two superb pocketbook-sized collections of positive affirmations and quotes from some of our most inspiring icons.
Words are powerful and so many of us are turning to positive affirmations to inspire us to be our best selves. Moving on from such a challenging year, it’s easy to get bogged down with the day to day and forget how truly special we are. This is why manifestation, affirmations and words of positivity are vital in keeping us on track.
Two new uplifting quote books have come along at just the right time and both are filled with well-designed quotes and life-advice from some of the world’s most incredible icons. Their handy hardback, pocket-size also means that you can take them everywhere, for a quick pick-me-up moment anytime you need it.
She Believed She Could So She Did: Uplifting Quotes from Awesome Women of Colour
This is compiled by writer, digital health expert and holistic wellness coach Sunny Fungcap. The small but mighty book contains a compilation of inspiring words from incredible and admirable women of colour whose self-belief has seen them achieve greatness despite what anyone else thinks they should be doing.
The book, made of “melanin and magic”, contains powerful words from truly inspiring women (and some of our favourites) such as, Lupita Nyong’o, Michelle Obama and Shonda Rhimes.
A favourite quote from the collection is from writer, television host and activist Janet Mock, “I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world is a revolutionary act.”
This collection of quotes is a must have for those days where you just need a little bit of a kick.
Wise Words from Black Icons: Quotes to Empower, Uplift and Inspire
This collection is compiled by mental performance coach Edgar Chekera. The book aims to provide quotes and life advice that empower, uplift and inspire, “the world is full of Black heroes whose talent, strength and vision should inspire us all.”
The impactful collection features words from icons throughout the world and history including Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King Jr and Stormzy. The book is a timeless reminder to break down barriers and believe in yourself as you stride in the direction of your dreams.
A quote that resonated with us from the collection is from Vice-President Kamala Harris, “Our unity is our strength, and our diversity is our power.”
Both books will be available for purchase on 11 March 2021, but if you can’t wait you can pre-order both books from WHSmith.
