Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.
The only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them.
There is no magic to achievement. It’s really about hard work, choices, and persistence.
Always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody says distract you from your goals.
We should always have three friends in our lives-one who walks ahead who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we’ve cleared the way.
One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
You have to practice success. Success doesn’t just show up. If you aren’t practicing success today, you won’t wake up in 20 years and be successful, because you won’t have developed the habits of success, which are small things like finishing what you start, putting a lot of effort into everything you do, being on time, treating people well.
We’ve got a responsibility to live up to the legacy of those who came before us by doing all that we can to help those who come after us.
Every girl, no matter where she lives, deserves the opportunity to develop the promise inside of her.
Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.
When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity…you do not slam it shut behind you…you reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.
Women and girls can do whatever they want. There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish.
No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, you are beautiful.
Value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect.
When women and girls rise,
and their countries rise with them
You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.
I admit it: I am louder than the average human being and have no fear of speaking my mind. These traits don’t come from the color of my skin but from an unwavering belief in my own intelligence.
We have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.
Do not die in the history of your past hurts and past experiences, but live in the now and future of your destiny.
Walk away from ‘friendships’ that make you feel small and insecure, and seek out people who inspire you and support you
You all have opportunities and skills and education that so many folks who came before you never could have dreamed of. So just imagine the kind of impact that you’re going to make. Imagine how you can inspire those around you to reach higher and complete their own education.
Success is only meaningful – and enjoyable – if it feels like your own.
Choose people who lift you up.
Service is a limitless opportunity, it is the reason why we breathe.
You work hard for what you want in life.
