Oprah Winfrey Business woman and inspirational

I have compiled a list of my favourite inspirational quotes from celebrity women in business from all over the world. As an entrepreneur I sometimes need a little push and motivation myself to get me through the hard times. (because believe me, its not always easy) I have these laying around to help me through them.

"The key to realising a dream is to focus not on success but on significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning." - Oprah Winfrey

Significance in the type of work that you do is a matter of opinion. Work that matters to me might not be significant to someone else. You can be successful by doing work that is not significant to yourself, but you will never be able to reach your dreams or be truly happy by doing this kind of work. Make sure that the work you pursue holds significance in your heart and in your life.

I am a working mom from Cape Town. I am passionate about fitness, all things self help and DIY. I like to figure it out and share as I go along, after all we are all just trying to figure this life out. I am all about women helping each other to excel whether its in work, play, or health and fitness. I am a qualified with the Health and Fitness Professional association, I have chosen not to use it as a career path but rather to help women achieve their goals via this blog. My work/business is Project Management in the FMCG and Entertainment Sector (www.theprojectlead.co.za) My true passion is music, nature, animals, helping others and most importantly my family. I am quite a philosophical mess (on the light side) and on a great adventure of finding my true self, like most of us (except maybe mermaids and unicorns because they know exactly who they are) Why don't you join me on this exciting journey and we can do it together, I promise I will make you laugh and you won't get bored.
