What's good for you brings out the
best in you. What's bad for you doesn't.

The only person who has to
believe in you is you.

You don't have to be small
for someone else to be BIG.

Somewhere beneath all those
distracting details is the
best version of you.

Make people see you.

Don't make a wish.
Make a decision.

Be less moved by
the opinion of others.

The first thing you should know
about me is that I'm not you. A lot
more will make sense after that.

Tap into your magic.

When you love yourself,
people who don't love you
back become less interesting.

Don't take credit for your talents.
Take credit for how you use them.

Being a strong woman used to mean
you could put up with a lot without
breaking. Now it means you can put up
with a lot, but aren't willing to.

Keep your next move quiet.

Free spirits don't ask
for permission.

Go after what you want or
be happy with what you get.

Let people discover you
over time.

You're intoxicating when
you do what you love.

Be passionate and totally
worth the chaos.

Don't be scared of stuff.

Focus on the magic of
things; yourself.

Go with what feels right even if
it ends up being wrong.

Look for proof that you're amazing.

You know what to do.

Identify with everything.
Align with nothing.

Don't fall into a role created by
someone else. You're a natural
at the one you've got.

Who says?

Put this to memory once and for all:
what others think about you doesn't
define you. Vice versa.

Don't seek approval from others.
Seek it from yourself.

Never let 'em see you coming.

Be enough like the people that they'll
listen to you. Be enough different
that you'll have something to say.

Instincts are habitual, knee-jerk
reactions. (Trust sometimes.) Intuition
is your link to infinite wisdom.
(Trust all of the time.)

Don't worry what they're doing, baby.
Let them worry about you.
