17 Inspiring Quotes From 17 Successful Women To Get You Through 2017

Happy 2017 my lovelies..."side note it's not yet here, but the spirit is" and if you're like me you are super excited to write the pages of that new book. Resolutions are DEAD!! However, GOALS are still in and of course you would want to be successful at achieving them..if not most. There are so many ways to ensure that you remain motivated along that path to success including quotes or use of affirmations. And in the spirit of the number 17, today I will share with you 17 of my favourite quotes from successful women to get you started or through the upcoming year.

Quotes 1 to 8  

A reminder that that you and only you have the power to change your life and make things happen for you. Unless you decide to take the vision and attach process & action to it, it will remain a vision.

Quotes 9-15

A reminder that life & adversity will always happen and sometimes it will pinch you to focus your energy on all the wrong things. It's ok, for a moment.. but after that we must move on and carry on with the process. 

  1. “Always concentrate on how far you have come, rather than how far you have left to go. The difference in how easy it seems will amaze you.”- Heidi Johnson
  2. "Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”- Marie Curie

Quotes 16-17

A reminder to be & reman grateful for every milestone,every bump and every lesson you will encounter and learn during the year. 

  1. “In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” Elizabeth Gilbert

  2. "Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." Melody Beattie

And as Carrie Fisher once said, Instant gratification takes too long.Meaning, we might not see the purpose of things happening to us in the moment, but there is usually a deeper meaning or lesson which we will come to embrace later. With focus, drive, and gratitude, I wish you all a successful 2017. xx Menellia
