10 Motivational Quotes from Successful Women


Sometimes we need a bit of motivation from words of wisdom and there are plenty of strong, successful women who can give it to us.

Negative Experiences

If you’re having a tough time and feeling down in the dumps sassy popstar Jessie J offers advice on how to overcome it without letting it control you: ‘It’s healthy to admit you’re not ok. “It’s ok not to be ok”. It’s brave. But don’t let it win. Be sad. Have your moment, your day or your week. Then do something about it and be happy. For yourself.’ If you are having one of those days where you need a bit of a boost from a new and objective angle, then why not have a chat in our community.

Making Mistakes

When you make mistakes, it’s not the end of the world assures classical and contemporary singer Katherine Jenkins, who sees them as important life lessons: ‘You learn from the mistakes you make, not the things you achieve.’

Having a Positive Attitude

Hollywood star Marylin Monroe advocated trying to go through life with a positive attitude: ‘So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing, and there’s so much to smile about.’ For more positive, empowering concepts and strategies visit our Video Moods series.

Loving your Quirks

Actress Angelina Jolie sets us a good example of accepting our quirks, what makes us an individual and loving it: ‘I’m getting a wrinkle about my eyebrow because I just can’t stop lifting it, and I love that you know.’

Embracing Aging

First Lady Michelle Obama echoes this sentiment and says things can only get better as we approach or leave behind the big 4-0: ‘What you learn is that each decade brings a new set of possibilities. I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman. But I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure I’m eating right and getting exercise and watching the aches and pains. I want to be this really fly 80-90 year old’.

Your Wardrobe

If you’re having a wardrobe malfunction or are agonising over the fact that you can’t quite fit into that dress, singer/songwriter Lilly Allen says: ‘Be comfortable in what you wear because comfortable is being confident, and being confident is good’.

Surrounding Yourself with the Right people

Famous author Jane Austen valued the benefits of surrounding herself with interesting people who have things to say for themselves: ‘My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation’.

Don’t let the ‘Haters’ bring you down

TV presenter and Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces Lucy Worsely offers a humorous attitude as a way to deal with receiving negativity from others. On her experience on internet trolling she says: ‘Usually I just press delete, but occasionally I call a troll out, and even more occasionally, he apologises. Another trick… is to send them back a picture of a cute kitten. That really does annoy them so much that you never ever hear from them again.’

Your Beauty

Kate Moss, despite her long career as a supermodel, lets us know she thinks it’s most important to be beautiful on the inside: ‘It sounds really corny but I think that if you’re beautiful on the inside it shows on the outside, for sure’. [Does being beautiful guarantee happiness?]

Being Judged on Trivial Things

Highlighting the way we shouldn’t worry too much about being scrutinised over trivial things is Sara Millican in her response to being criticised for her Bafta dress choice: ‘I’m sorry. I thought I had been invited to such an illustrious event because I am good at my job…I made a decision the following day that should I ever be invited to attend the Baftas again. I will wear the same dress. To make the point that it doesn’t matter what I wear; that’s not what I’m being judged on. With the added fun of answering the red-carpet question. “Where did you get your dress?” with “Oh, it’s just last year’s pet”.
