Yes, we know – 2021 has been strange. With endless adaptation to unfamiliar circumstances, saying goodbye too soon to those we cherished, and seeking light in the darkness, many of us are ready for a fresh beginning.

As we enter the final stretch of a tumultuous year,  Her Agenda wants to bestow wisdom that was spoken by several phenomenal women whose stories we’ve had the privilege to share throughout this year. Entering Q4, please take a moment to reflect and take the inspiration you may need to remind you of how important you are in this world.

Here are 11 of our favorite pieces of advice from the entrepreneurs, leaders, and world-changers we recently spoke to.

1. You Are The Prize

“We think because we have money that our lives will be good, but I was empty, lonely, and sad. I put all my energy into him; even though my life is about me. From that relationship, I realized that I am the prize and I am enough, which was a wake-up call that helped me step into my power.”

Tia Mowry Her Agenda

“To me, aging should be a celebration, not something that we hide or don’t appreciate. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t allow people to tell me what beauty is. The way I feel about myself is what I will celebrate.”

Blockquote open

 “Our names are products of our parents and what they’ve chosen for us and also we grow into them and make it what it is. To erase a part of ourselves that could give a clue into where we come from makes me really sad.”

8. Protect Your Peace

Sylvia Obell Her Agenda
Blockquote open

“Peace is when I feel alignment in my heart, body, soul, purpose, and life. When that feels off-balance in some way, I have to check in and figure out what is throwing it off to get it back in alignment.”

- SYLVIA OBELL, WRITER, ON-AIR HOST, PRODUCERBlockquote close

9. Don’t Talk Yourself Out Of Your Purpose

Danika Berry
Blockquote open

“The number one thing that keeps people from succeeding, that keeps people broke, is accepting what they’re dealt in life. Then eventually you’re 50, 60, 70 years old wondering what the hell happened. Imma tell you what happened: you talked yourself out of your purpose. I did not want to talk myself out of my purpose. I know what my purpose is and I didn’t want to have a what-if story. Don’t ever have a what-if story.”

10. Don’t Allow Anyone To Intimidate You

Rhonda Wills

“When I walk into a room and I’m the only Black woman in the room, I simply smile and I go on in my work of representing my clients. I never ever allow anything to bother me, set me back, or intimidate me.”

11. There Is Only One You

Melissa Carnegie

“I always try to tell myself that there is only one you. No one can do it like you can. No one is going to show up like you show up. No one is going to deliver a message like you deliver it. Continue to remember that as you grow. Focus on you. Even though there may be a lot of people out there, they are coming to you for a reason.”
