Being a woman can be tough, whether you’re a stay at home mum, a businesswoman, a carer, an agony aunt, a sister, or a mixture of all of these things, you’re doing great. It seems only fair on International Women’s day to share with you my ‘go to’ quotes for when I need that little bit of motivation, brought to you by successful, inspirational women.
“Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live” – Anne Sweeney (President of Walt Disney)
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us” – Helen Keller (Author and Political Activist)
“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” – Sara Blakely (Founder of Spanx)
“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn (Actress)
“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – J.K Rowling (Author)
“I learned to always take on things I’d never done before. Growth and comfort do not coexist.” – Virginia Rometty (CEO of IBM)
Happy International Women’s Day!
