#Know Your Worth

Embrace Your Inner AfroDeity

Hopefully you will have noticed our new blog layout and we do hope you like it, We would love to hear what you think so drop me a line anytime leilu@afrodeity.co.uk. It's a new day at AfroDeity and we are looking forward to showing you what we have to offer, starting with this:


At AfroDeity we believe in Knowing Your Worth. We never settle for anything less and we don't believe you should either. We are always striving to bring you better information, and we want to help you feel confident enough to get out and live the life you deserve. 

When I started blogging at AfroDeity I had lost all confidence, the promotion I had been working towards had eluded me for three years, and I began to think that I wasn't good enough. I had lost a lot of my hair, my career was going nowhere and I began to feel inferior. This affected my work, my family life and more than anything else my self esteem plummeted. That was some years ago now. But if I have learnt anything from that low point in my life it is that you should always #knowyourworth and you are worth more. A lot more than you realise. Every human being has the capacity to do amazing things, not just the rich ones or the lucky ones, every human being. Our time on this earth is short, don't squander it. Live the life you deserve and don't accept less than that or  let anyone tell you or make you feel that you are less

You are More. So much more!!!

So I will leave you with a twenty quotes to get your week started

“You can fall, but you can rise also.” – Angelique Kidjo

“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.”

 – Maya Angelou

“You will be wounded many times in your life. You’ll make mistakes. Some people will call them failures but I have learned that failure is really God’s way of saying, “Excuse me, you’re moving in the wrong direction.” It’s just an experience, just an experience.” 
– Oprah Winfrey

“The triumph can’t be had without the struggle.” – Wilma Rudolph

“Whatever you fear most has no power – it is your fear that has the power. The thing itself cannot touch you. But if you allow your fear to seep into your mind and overtake your thoughts, it will rob you of your life.”
 – Oprah Winfrey

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” – Rosa Parks

“Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you, raped before you…yet, someone survived…You can do anything you choose to do.”
