30 Best Successful Women Quotes (that will motivate the shit out of you)

Sharing is caring!

Let’s face it, being a strong and successful woman doesn’t come easy. Many of us had to claw our way out of rock bottom to get to where we are today, amirite? Personally, my journey to success and being a strong woman included reading lots of eBooks and successful women quotes and downloading self-help guides.

All those things plus many more tools helped me to become a strong woman and now I can proudly call myself a highly successful woman. It takes years of hard work, determination and persistence.

And I always tell everyone, if I can do it, so can you. Anyone can really. Anyone who wants to be successful can be. You simply have to want it really bad.

Like your desire for a better life has to be stronger than your desire to stay in misery.
