Though many people simply know her as the president’s daughter, others know Ivanka Trump as the woman who truly built an empire. She is an engaged mother, a supportive daughter, an activist for women and children, a fashion icon, and a key influencer in the Trump administration. Despite the criticism she faces on a daily basis, she rises above with poise and grace. Ivanka has proved herself as a female leader, and inspires all of us to become more like her.

Here are a few motivational quotes from the girl boss herself:

  1. “Honor yourself by exploring the kind of life you deserve. Question and consider everything, but know that when you are truly passionate about something, you’ll feel it in your heart and gut. You’ll know you’re doing work that marries well with your interests and strengths because you won’t be able to wait to get back to it. And there will be no question as to when you’ve landed upon your purpose, because it will feel like home.”

  2. “If you are content, that’s probably not good enough.”

  3. “If you’re passionate about what you do, and have the work ethic to match, you will succeed.”

  4. “Success is setting goals that feel true to who you are, not to what others expect of you.”

  5. “If people think I’m just the boss’s daughter, they’re deceived.”

  6. “People underestimate me, and that’s fine. I prefer to go into negotiations underestimated.”

  7. “Do things out of love and passion rather than obligation.”

  8. “If people think they can elicit from me whatever terms they want, they are mistaken.”

  9. “We can’t all be great at everything, but we can all be great at something.”

  10. “It’s not just about the 9 to 5. It’s about a full life lived to the fullest.”

  11. “Are you a slave to your time or a master of it?”

  12. “Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it.”

  13. “Seasons of chaos will undoubtedly come at some point in your life, and throw off even your best-laid plans, but you can go momentarily off track, knowing that you have a solid system in place to return to as soon as possible.”

  14. “Make the pace of your life work for you, rather than base your decisions off convention.”

  15. “Everything about mediocrity kills me.”

Ladies, channel your inner Ivanka and seize whatever comes your way.
