As you know, February is Black History Month! T0 celebrate, here are a few motivational quotes from some amazing Black icons:

1) “Look closely at the present you are constructing: it should look like the future you are dreaming.” ~ Alice Walker

2) “We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.” ~ Jesse Owens

3) “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” ~ Maya Angelou

4) “Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” ~ Ella Fitzgerald

5) “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is usually more important than the outcome.” ~ Arthur Ashe

6) “When I dare to be powerful — to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ~ Audre Lord

7) “I really don’t think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don’t mind the failure but I can’t imagine that I’d forgive myself if I didn’t try.” ~ Nikki Giovanni

8) “Each person must live their life as a model for others.” ~ Rosa Parks

9) “Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.” ~ Wilma Rudolph

10) “When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” ~ George Washington Carver

Have an amazing week, and live your most Fabulous life!  :-)
