There are a lot of amazing, inspiring ladies both past and present with fantastic words of wisdom to impart. All of them share one common quality, and that’s bravery, they are never afraid to speak their mind, they don’t worry about what people think and they are completely focused on their own path. They refuse to compete with others because they are confident in their own abilities and they share a belief that there is room for more than just one diva. All traits that everyone should embrace a little more.
While these ladies have said a lot of awe inspiring things, these 10 pearls of wisdom strike a chord with me and I think there is so much to take from each one in order to make our own lives better and to give us the courage to strive to achieve more.
“When you love and accept yourself, when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don’t know you think.”
“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”
“I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.”
“I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.”
“We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents and interests.”
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
“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.”
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
“Its about being alive and feisty and not sitting down and shutting up even though people would like you to.”
“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
