11 Mantras For Strong Women

11 Mantras For Strong Women


There are lots of mantras and quotes out there that might be able to empower women. They often do. Many successful and smart women have their own credos too, and they use these in order to motivate themselves to succeed throughout their lives and professional careers.

Obviously, meaningful sayings are not going to always be meaningful for everyone. People will need to find their own meaning in various mantras, and this is something that will allow them to truly move forward where it pertains to establishing a strong degree of confidence.

Try some of these mantras on for size and see if it helps empower you, too. You deserve it!

1. Learn to accept that turbulence is a problem.


Some people will wait for things in life to calm down, and this is just not something that successful people can ever do at any point. Life is turbulent, and this is always going to be the case. People who learn to move with the turbulence will be the ones that will ultimately succeed. They accept the fact that the world is complicated and you have to make sure you can dodge whatever is thrown at you, because life will throw things at you without stopping.



2. Know your worth.


All of you counts, even your flaws. You are a person, and you have worth, one way or another. If someone tries to convince you that you're worthless for any reason, they're the ones who are wrong. All human beings have worthy attributes, and there is never a good reason to deny the worth of a human being. People are full of value and promise, all the time.

The individuals who try to stop you are often motivated by prejudice, or a sort of faceless and meaningless cruelty. You can ignore them and pursue your own life conscious of your inherent worth. You do not need to be successful or unsuccessful to be worthy.



3. You are already enough.


Many people in this culture, especially women, are constantly thrust into a situation where they are comparing themselves to others, whether physical or not, and usually unfavorably. You simply do not have to comply. You never have to define your life according to others.

You are good enough and they are good enough, and you don't need to put 'feeling good about yourself' on hold until you meet some unspoken standard or requirement. Give yourself the permission to feel good about who you are and what you accomplish.



4. You're allowed to be vulnerable.


Being empowered doesn't mean presenting a falsely stoic face to the world. Some of the things that we see as weaknesses are actually sources of strength. However, these are your feelings and you don't have to hide them from everyone just because other people like to devalue them. Their perception of your best qualities (and worst) are entirely irrelevant.

There are times in life to be open, to be vulnerable, and to let your true feelings be known. Let your voice be heard. Confide in those you trust. Talk to people -- family, friends, whoever it might be, and let them know you really care, and that their care for you matters in return. If you let yourself be open with people you're close to, you'll gain strength from the openness.



5. Empower yourself by empowering others.


Empowerment is about strengthening the whole community. Empowering others will tend to make you feel empowered as well. This creates a world where it's easier for all people to feel defended and valued. You don't have to do it alone, and they don't have to do it alone, either.

Too much talk about empowerment focuses only on the individual, and while that is certainly important, it is also useful to see empowerment as something of a group effort. By helping one another, we help our social communities become something much better than before.



6. Love yourself. 


Treat yourself like you are worthy of love (because you are,) and it's going to be that much easier for you to find deep love for yourself. Take pride in all of the qualities that make you unique as well as the qualities that make you conventionally appealing. You'll need them.

You don't have to feel as if you are never good enough for anyone else. That's a fallacy to believe in. You are amazing as-is, and they will soon realize that if you believe it yourself. It shows on your face and in your actions. So be the type of person you would want to be with.



7. Read whatever you want.


A lot of books are pushed on people, especially women, even if they are ultimately just going to contribute to a woman's poor self image. Many books on 'beauty' fall into this category. It's a sad state of affairs where a woman cannot even escape societal pressures to read a book.

Smart women read the books that they personally find fulfilling and that give them meaning. There are lots of books like that if you take the time to figure out exactly what to look for. You don't have to settle for anything, and that includes books that make things worse than better. 



8. Tell yourself, "I don't have to settle."


You don't. So don't do it. There are too many independent women out there who somehow still end up settling for partners who really have nothing to offer them. Our strength does not come from taking undesirable options. It comes from having a degree of emotional balance.

Women should choose options that are good for them, whether it's work, friends, partners, or everything else. You deserve to have the best of what's out there in your life, and they should get the privilege of enjoying you at your best. Keep your standards high. You won't regret it.



9. You are allowed to be dramatic.


Yes, a lot of people are still trying to hold women back. It happens every day. Even in a newly feminist society, the battle is raging on for a lot of women. You can give yourself permission to be bold, to be loud, to be "dramatic". You don't have to wait for other people to do all of the work for you, and this can make things a lot better for you right away. Be bold, be different, be strong, and be proud.

Many of the victories in today's feminist movement came from a lot of women individually refusing to back down, and this is something that needs to continue if all people are going to make progress as a whole. Society needs strong women, unafraid to back down from a fight.



10. Enjoy the quiet space of your own mind.


You may enjoy spending time around other people, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't try to enjoy your own company just as much. If you can be happy with your friends, you can be happy by yourself too. You won't have as many toxic friendships or toxic relationships in order to avoid loneliness. Enjoy the quiet space in your mind and relish the peacefulness.

You will only associate with the people who appreciate what's in your head, since you will appreciate all of it anyway. Allow yourself the freedom to really explore your introspective side -- who you are, what you love, and how you think and feel. It'll change you forever.



11. Always be yourself, no matter what.


The person inside you (the person who you genuinely are) is a unique person. You don't
have to dilute yourself in order to fit in with others or in order to give in to other people's expectations. It's important for you to make sure that you really know yourself. When you do, it's that much easier to adapt to everything around you and feel confident in your own skin.

Hopefully, some of these mantras resonated with you, and if applied to aspects of your daily life, can hopefully make a tremendous difference. We are all trying to do the best we can with what we have on the table, and these mantras help reinforce your worth and value to others.
