“The road to success is always under construction.”
Hey GirlMoguls, today’s quote comes from Lily Tomin, an American actress, comedian, writer and a producer. She is a well-rounded entertainer and a very successful woman. With the New Year on the horizon, I felt that this is a very inspirational quote from a very inspirational woman that we can use for the New Year ahead. She has won many awards and she is a recognized face in the entertainment industry, but her accomplishments are a direct reflection of years of hard work. Tomlin never took a break from working. She has always tried different things in her career and strived to become better at it each day. Her hard work has complimented her journey to success.
This quote is a great way for us to start the New Year. Success is not easily achieved and you have to work for it. I think she is trying to say that we should not settle for anything and continue to work on our dreams and goals in life. Even when we feel like we have achieved what we wanted, we should continue to try to do better and gain more. Success is never ending. You can always work on your goals in life which is why it’s always under construction. So for this New Year, we should all set goals for the next year, work hard each day, and try and do better than we did the day before.
“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself”
– Anna Quindlen
Hey GirlMoguls! It’s Rose here, with an inspirational quote I found! Today’s quote comes from Anna Quindlen, an American author, journalist, and a columnist. She is Barnard College graduate and has written five best selling books, out of which three were made into motion pictures. She has also written for numerous New York newspapers. I think Anna Quindlen captures the quintessential dilemma with most young girls today. In this day and age, teenage girls all across the world face challenges, but none that are as tough as having the pressure of being perfect. School, friends, and society demand a girl to have the perfect looks and the perfect hair and makeup. It’s not easy to be a young girl today without feeling the need to look just right and match up to the rest of the other girls. Girls feel insecure not being and/or looking their best. There is always more competition amongst girls than there are with guys. I know I feel that kind of pressure in school.
I think what Mrs. Quindlen is trying to say here is that we need to begin to love ourselves for who we truly are. Stop trying to be someone you are not and start accepting yourself for who you really are. It is not easy to give up on striving to be the best, but that shouldn’t push you to become someone that you are not. We should all try to become the best of our own selves, and do the best we can. Then, we can just be content with who we are instead of obsessing over what everyone else thinks! So, girls, let’s take her advice and try it! Let me know how your journey goes!
