Motivational Phrases from the book My Story by Michelle Obama

Many times we are the ones who choose a book, other times, it is the book that chooses us. Without a doubt, My Story of Michelle Obama came into my hands just at the right time. With these phrases from Michelle Obama's book I want to give you a brief summary of what you can find in My Story.

It is a book that I recommend reading to everyone but especially to EVERYONE. Women present here, give this book to others, read it, read it again, underline sentences. This woman has overcome barriers and is an example of overcoming that we all should know.

For every door that has been opened for me, I have tried to open mine for others.
