Whenever I’m looking for a little encouragement, I always turn to inspirational quotes. It’s something I started doing during middle school, and it never fails to motivate me or change my perspective, especially now as a woman. Sometimes we need a little encouragement, and hearing the words of successful, inspirational women, and men, can often give us that boost we need.

“I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way, and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me badass.” – Shonda Rhimes

“Pray. Set goals. Make a plan. Work hard. Succeed. Thank God. Stay humble.”

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” – Albert Einstein

“I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” – Estee Lauder

“I was smart enough to go through any door that opened.” – Joan Rivers

“Done is better than perfect.” – Sheryl Sandberg

“You can waste your life drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them.” – Shonda Rhimes

“I’m always perpetually out of my comfort zone.” – Tory Burch

“I did not have the most experience in the industry or the most money, but I cared the most.” – Sarah Blakely

When inspirational quotes aren’t enough, I like to turn to inspirational books. Books written by fellow female entrepreneurs always motivate me to continue growing my business. They also provide great advice and guidance when I need it most. Check out my round-up of Inspirational Books for Women: The Girlboss Reading List if you’re looking for some great reads by women!
