35+ Manifestos I love & admire

On courage - inspiring quotes and manifestos for life and business
1 min |

I must confess, the word manifesto used to leave a bad taste in my mouth.

I didn’t like it at all.

Maybe because it has political connotations and brings back horrid memories of having to pitch my political manifesto to my class in school {anything related to standing up in front of an audience was torture}!

But glance around Pinterest and you’ll find all manner of inspiring manifestos on living life and doing business well. Some are a fiery “call to arms” while others are gentle whispers of kindness. They all overflow with passion and being true to yourself.

Here are my favourite manifestos on Pinterest

How I started loving manifestos

Back in the summer of 2014, after doing some deep archetypal branding work using the incredible Cerries Mooney‘s offerings, I wrote down my creative process philosophy:

Manifesto for creators

Later, I developed a one-page framework, which I’ve pinned up on the wall behind my desktop monitor. They help remind me that I can do business on my terms. And I often clutch at these handfuls of words when my Inner Critic gets loud.



Sometimes we just need a wee inspirational quote  – yep, I’ve got a board full of those too!
