Seeing how these women are all successful in their own right, it might be worth paying heed to the wise words that have inspired them to overcome the tough times.
“If you really believe in it, just go for it. Just go all out. Don’t think. Don’t doubt yourself.”
“Business is about relationships. You need to learn how to have good relationships with people before you do business with them, that’s why it’s important to focus on building genuine connections when networking. And don’t expect it to develop into a business partnership till a couple of years later.”
“Don’t ask yourself how difficult a task is — just how important it is to you. There will always be obstacles in life, so if it’s something you want to do, do it.”
“Ask yourself, ‘What could I have done better?’ or ‘What makes me jump out of bed?’ Go and try anything — there’s really nothing to lose, only things to gain. When you close one door, you get to learn that it’s not the door.”
“To dream big, be ambitious, and set really high goals for myself. That way, even if I don’t reach my eventual goal, I’ll find that I’ve done much more than I expected to.”
“The most important thing is that you don’t give up on yourself. Just because you failed at something doesn’t mean you’re not good at it. It just means that you have to work harder to get better.”
“Take ownership of your goals and desires. Win battles with confidence and don’t get affected by other people’s opinions.”
