I love to see a young girl go out
and grab the world by the lapels.
Life’s a bitch.
You’ve got to go out and kick ass.
– Maya Angelou
What I wanted was to be allowed to do
the thing in the world that I did best
— which I believed then and believe now
is the greatest privilege there is.
When I did that, success found me.
– Debbi Fields
If you are committed to creating value
and if you aren’t afraid of hard times;
obstacles become utterly unimportant.
A nuisance perhaps; but with no real power.
The world respects creation; people will get out of your way.
– Candice Carpenter
Whatever you do, be different
– that was the advice my mother gave me,
and I can’t think of better advice for an entrepreneur.
If you’re different, you will stand out.
– Anita Roddick
Begin doing what you want to do now.
We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand
– and melting like a snowflake.
– Marie Beyon Ray
Our premise is there are going to be a lot of winners.
It’s not winner take all.
Other people do not have to lose for us to win.
~ Jeff Bezos
Be bold enough to use your voice,
brave enough to listen to your heart,
and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined.
Be of good cheer.
Do not think of today’s failures,
but of the success that may come tomorrow.
You have set yourselves a difficult task,
but you will succeed if you persevere;
and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.
Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.
~ Helen Keller
Every now and then women should do for themselves what men have already done,
occasionally what men have not done,
thereby establishing themselves as persons,
and perhaps encouraging other women toward greater independence of thought and action.
Some such consideration was a contributing reason for my wanting to do what I so much wanted to do.
~ Amelia Earhart
Crystallize your goals.
Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline.
Then with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan.
~Paul J. Meyer
