Unmatched, confident, and dauntless – these are some words to describe women today.
Countless women from all over the world have done many extraordinary things that made the present what it is.
I think we can all agree that a woman’s existence can make the world more beautiful. No one could be both strong and fragile as a woman. Women can be empathetic yet logical, an asset strong enough to fight for their rights.
So, if you happen to know a mom, a businesswoman, a virtual assistant, a life coach, or an entrepreneur doing her best to make an impact in the world— this is an extra special day to let her know you appreciate her.
8point8 joins the rest of the world in honoring women today, March 8th.
In celebration of International Women's Month, here is a compilation of powerful quotes from powerful women over the years.
"Do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt.
"Investing in women means investing in people who invest in everyone else." - Melinda Gates
"There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success... but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going... you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there." - Taylor Swift.
" A girl should be two things: Who and What she wants" - Coco Chanel.
"Anything's possible if you've got the nerve." - J.K. Rowling.
“You will be defined not just by what you achieve, but by how you survive.” - Sheryl Sandberg.
“Stay true to yourself and your vision. Don’t let any one person’s opinion move you; listen, but be confident.” - Amanda Kahlow.
“If you’re not [learning], you’re falling behind. Somebody else is getting better as you’re becoming less valuable. I see so many irrelevant salespeople I want to cry. They stopped learning.” - Jill Konrath
“I’ve always been a bit of an introvert, but just because you don’t fit the classic mold doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader. You just need to find your style and someone with a similar style who you can learn from.” - Jess Lee
“We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential.” – Hillary Clinton
Here's to future generations full of incredible and inspiring women! 🥂
