With the Women’s March taking place all around the world, we want to celebrate women from all walks of life and for all of their successes. It’s important to remember that we never lose sight of who we are and the potential that all women have within themselves.

With that, here are some life advice from a few of the world’s most powerful women

“Given a time-turner, I would tell my 21-year-old self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a check-list of acquisition or achievement.”

J.K. Rowling

“I was raised in an atmosphere of ‘everything’s fine’. But as I got older, I was like, ‘Well, no, everything’s not fine…’”

Ellen DeGeneres

“As your career grows, the list of things that makes you happy should not become smaller, it should become bigger.”

Taylor Swift

“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes. Understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”

Arianna Huffington

“Your ability to navigate and tolerate change and its painful uncomfortableness directly correlates to your happiness and general wellbeing. See what I just did there? I saved you thousands of dollars on self-help books. If you can surf your life rather than plant your feet, you will be happier.” 

Amy Poehler
