Abiola Abrams quotes: the media maven’s most helpful quotes.

“Dream your dream.”

“If you wait for everything to be perfect, you will never start. So what are you waiting for again?”

“Define who you are clearly, and never give up.”

“You are here to evolve. That means becoming comfortable with the fact that there is no safety. You might as well go on and be yourself.”

“Taking action is the fusion of masculine and feminine energy needed to give birth to your vision.”

“Charge up your fullness muscle. No more playing small. I want you to be full of yourself. I want you to be so full of you that there is no room for anyone else’s opinion of you. Your inner bully will have to retire. Your detractors will dissolve.”

“If you are seeing your life through victim-colored glasses, you are forgetting that you have choices.”

“What’s the cost of staying stuck in your life and be in the same place? That’s a greater cost for me. People will think nothing of, ‘I’ll go spend the same money on Beyoncé tickets or I’ll spend this money on a fresh weave, fresh sneakers or whatever it is.’ People have the right to value whatever they value, but don’t say that you want your life to be different and yet you want to keep doing the same thing.”

“Be the best person you can be in the beginning because you can’t coach, speak, heal or any of that if you’re not the best you that you can be.”

“A lot of us are undercharging ourselves and overworking ourselves because we’ll go to bat for anybody and go above and beyond, but then we undercharge ourselves for that.”

“We all need guidance to be the best person that we can be. On top of that, you go out and lead your tribe or whatever it is that you’re born to do.”

“There is a self-love solution for every challenge.”

“Let go of what you think should be happening for what actually is.”

“Let us release self-judgment and come home to ourselves. Let us release feelings of powerlessness and realize that we are powerful beyond measure.”

“Life doesn’t begin when you lose the weight or get the job or find the guy. Enjoy the cycles. If you are waiting until you ‘arrive’ to start living, you’re MIA in your own life, Missing in Affirmation.”

“Of course, stuff happens. It’s like bathing. I can’t say, ‘I took a bath back in June and I was good.’ You have to keep at it. If you leave a field, weeds grow naturally without you trying to, but if you want something more beautiful, you want a specific kind of plant, vegetable or flower, then you’ve got to be intentional about it. When you remove those beliefs, nature hates a vacuum.”

“You’re going to replace it with what you already know, your default settings. You’ve got to reprogram your default settings by installing new beliefs. If your belief system was very simply like, ‘I’m not good enough,’ then you’ve got to install the new belief, ‘I am good enough.’ Not just chanting mindless affirmations, that’s good too, but you need something underneath it. You need a foundation. What would it take for you to believe that about yourself? You take baby steps towards whatever it is that you’re trying to create, small incremental steps.”

“Small drops heal the mighty ocean. Are you coming to God’s ocean with a thimble and saying, ‘I just want this much. Just get me through the month. If I could just make my bills, if I could just do whatever?’ Do we come with this much with a thimble? If that’s what you’re coming with, you’re going to feel that. If you’re coming with your arms open and you’re like, ‘I am ready. I’m willing. I’m able, use me, take me.’ That’s a different energy. You’re going to be filled up with something different.”

“We’re all eight years old inside. Just don’t let that eight-year-old who formed what you believe about love, safety, and emotions control your adult life.”

“When we are growing up, if we have parents who are in a healthy mindset… people will do the very best that they can with what they know. Parents who are in a healthy mindset want their children to thrive. They want their children not only to be their best, but they want their children to surpass them. If that’s the truth, about our earthly parents, then it’s the same about our spiritual parents who brought us here, however, whatever language people feel comfortable with to define.”

“It’s time you became the author of your own story instead of the inheritor of patched-together interpretations you assigned to your experiences as a child.”

“Be your own best friend instead of your worst enemy.”

“Don’t pretend to be someone else just to get attention. Dress the way you want to be treated. Your look is part of your self-expression, not a billboard to scream your latest crisis. Give yourself a makeover to signal your new life but to thine own fabulosity be true.”

“People-pleasing doesn’t allow you to receive.”

“We try to fill up but we’re still hungry because we’re trying to satisfy our inner hunger with outer things. We are ravenous for pleasure, passion, positivity and play.”

“You are magnificent beyond measure, perfect in your imperfections, and wonderfully made.”

“Loving ourselves is a revolutionary act!”

“Sometimes we just can’t get to self-love. At those times, I say reach for ‘self-being.’ Self-being is leaning into the essence of who you really are, versus the persona that you have created to be accepted by those around you.”

“A woman in love with herself is magnetic. How do you know if someone loves herself? No hairstyle, religion, or ethnicity has ownership of self-love or a greater propensity toward self-hatred. The best way to tell if a woman loves herself is by how she treats herself and others. She makes self-loving choices.”

“Stop pretending that you are powerless. Give up the idea that your hunger is acceptable. A woman filled with her essence is radiant and vibrant.”

“Let the art of your life stand metaphorically with the great ones that came before you.”

“Love thyself to rock thy life.”

“I have always created media around empowerment, lifestyle and relationships. When I was a teen I knew that I wanted to host talk shows and write books. I just didn’t know what form that would take.”

“The internet was not what it is now when I was a teen. So I created my career brick by brick, and continue to do so.”

“The Web caught up with my entrepreneurial DIY mindset, so I started writing and broadcasting for the Web. My very first important internship though was working for the host of a wellness show on a CNBC network. That cemented for me what I wanted to do.”

“My calling is to be a leader to leaders, to help other leaders to get to where they need to be. People can have all of the strategy in the world to do things, all of the inspiration, the motivation and all of that, but if the mindset is not tight, if the mentality is not in alignment, then things are completely off kilter.”

“I created the term ‘spiritpreneur’ because often I was finding women like me who were wanting to coach, heal or be creative entrepreneurs and didn’t necessarily feel like they fit into the regular entrepreneurial spaces.”

“Spiritpreneurs are doing what they feel that spirit is leading them to do. That they are answering their calling and building a business around it, which usually is in the form of being an author, a speaker, a coach, a healer, some health or empowerment practitioner. The niche could vary from a love and relationship spiritpreneur or you could be an empowerment and spiritualities spiritpreneur, you could be a health and fitness spiritpreneur. You could be a beauty and fashion spiritpreneur. It’s that you’re feeling spirit-led to be able to change the world in this area and make that your business as well.”

“You can’t convince somebody else of their potential. It has to come from them, their own self-belief, their own belief in their potential. Most of us were raised by well-meaning people who did the very best that they could with what they knew at the time. A lot of their attempts to keep us safe are the same mentalities, the same programming that they put in us that then keep us small. There’s a bit of deprogramming we have to do as conscious adults who are wanting to play on a bigger scheme in life, a bit of deprogramming that we have to do and I call it re-parenting ourselves.”

“If you feel genuinely in your life that you are at potential max and you are rocking it out, rock out. It’s an individual thing. It’s like whatever works for you. I’m talking to the men and women who are like, ‘I know that I could be doing more. I know there’s a bigger game for me. I know that I could be doing this more.’ Usually for us as a tribe of achievers, of creators and of makers, we can make it look good on the outside.”

“If I truly believed in my potential, if I believed the things that I say I believe, what would my life look like? I say begin with some self-reflection because you don’t know what you don’t know. Get with you, your God, your journal and start to ask yourself some questions about, ‘What do I believe about myself, about my life, about my potential, about what’s capable for me?’ For example, knowing your story, ‘Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful story with me and the world.’ The average person would say, ‘Those people know more about me, my body and my life than I do. It is what it is.’ I’m going to play the hand.”

“God didn’t create an abundant universe. If you go to any park or ocean, you can see how expensive and abundant God is. God didn’t bring you here in order for you to suffer, give you your dreams in order for you to suffer or say, ‘Only people who are inheriting income or rich people, they get to do what they want, but the rest of us, we’ve got to suffer, we’ve got to duke it out, we’ve got to be hand-to-mouth or anything like that.’ That’s not the truth.”

“As a spiritpreneur, as an entrepreneur, as a human on this planet, we should be giving abundantly. We should be giving fully. We should absolutely be giving. It’s a part of the exchange. The beautiful metaphor of we’re gifted and loved here on this Earth that we don’t have to ask, ‘Can we take another breath?’ We inhale, exhale and expect that that is going to be there for us. How loved are we? It’s an exchange because we’re inhaling the oxygen we need, exhaling CO2 that other plants and things on this planet need. It’s the perfect ecosystem. It’s the same thing with our businesses, services with the giving and the receiving. I don’t usually talk about this outside of my group but a few years ago, I was overworked, underpaid and had a horrible boss except the boss was me.”

“Get up, it’s reaping season.”

“It’s not only that your Maker, your Creator thinks it’s okay for you to thrive, but your Maker, your Creator wants you to thrive, wants you to expand, wants you to be your best, not just in terms of money. We get very caught up when we talk about abundance in terms of money, but there are abundant health, well-being and the ability to take a deep breath. There’s abundant love, relationships and friendships. There’s abundant communication and all of that. If you are in a one-sided relationship with money where you’re hoarding and feeling like, ‘I’m going to take it all for myself,’ that’s out of whack, that’s out of alignment. It’s giving and receiving. It’s a natural balance.”

“I have no interest in convincing anybody of anything. I think that people have the right to believe what it is that they want to believe. I’m speaking to the people that this is the message that they needed to hear. People who are wanting to think something else or think, ‘It’s not in my religion to charge for my services. It’s more in my religion to work for somebody else,’ or whatever it is that they believe. There’s no shame in that. Do what works for you. I don’t believe that your Creator gave you gifts and talents and then at the same time, wants you to suffer, starve so that you’re not able to maximize and be who you were born to be.”

“I’m here to expand, to learn and to grow. A lot of us have invested a lot of money in university educations, me included, that haven’t done a darn thing. It had nothing to do with what we’re doing. I have degrees that have nothing to do with anything. Investing in my own personal evolution, betting on me turned out to be much more the way to go.”

“I have no typical day. In addition to my blog, I contribute written and video content to a number of sites like Yahoo.com and LuvEmOrLeavem, including relationship advice vlogs. I also host my own shows, ghostwrite for other people, and I am writing my next book. My days vary widely, but they are always big, bawdy, fun and over the top.”

“I have incredible fans and supporters. The best part of what I do is interacting with them through my work. I love writing, and am obsessed with broadcasting, whether TV, Web or radio and am passionate about talking about love and lifestyle so it is win-win.”

“My role models are Oprah Winfrey, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Martha Stewart. Women who ask questions for a living and who will definitely leave the planet better than they have found it.”

“My work is not about me. My work is about reminding other women to live unapologetically and to go for our dreams no matter what!”

“The journey has been a lot of hard work, but I am grateful for every step.”

“I live, love and thrive on the mantra, ‘Seize the day.'”

“If there’s a gift or a dream that has been put into your heart or put into your spirit, I don’t believe that it’s been put there without the way to make it happen. It’s going to take all of us making shifts, cleaning up our own corner of the world. If there’s a dream that you have in your heart, you are as young as you are ever going to be. You’re not too old. It’s not too late. This is your time. You are enough. Make it happen.”
