International Women's Day: 11 pieces of good advice
In honour of International Women's Day, here are 11 great pieces of advice from great women.
That's all, I'm keeping it simple because the best way to get the message of this day is through actions, words.
But this is a blog, so here goes:
"We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own 'to do' list."
"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
"I firmly believe you should never spend your time being the former anything."
"If you have an idea, you have to believe in yourself or no one else will."
Sarah Michelle Gellar
"Human beings have an inalienable right to invent themselves; when that right is pre-empted it is called brainwashing."
"Equal rights, fair play, justice, are all like air: we all have it, or one of us has it. That is the truth of it."
"If you don't ask, you cannot be told no."
"The way you tell your story to yourself matters."
"I didn't get there by wishing for it, or hoping for it, but by working for it."
"I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done."
"Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism then try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you."
