This week, former White House Press Secretary and Fox News host Dana Perino blessed young women everywhere with a new book, Evyerthing Is Going To Be Okay. It is a “no-nonsense how-to guide to life for young women looking to reframe their thinking, to believe in themselves, to take risks, to understand their power, and to feel better overall through finding serenity and taking action.” Sign us up. If you need further reinforcement that this book belongs on your TBR, here are the 13 best quotes from the new book.
“Choosing to be loved is not a career-limiting decision”
“Being late means that no matter how talented you are, you don’t come across as committed and serious. Being punctual shows you care, you’re responsible, and you can be given more duties”
“In almost every field, women are succeeding more than ever before. Women are advancing rapidly, and yet they feel that time is not on their side. They’re in a bit of a hurry to make something (and everything!) happen.
“There has never been a better time to be a young, educated woman in America. Being born in the United States means you’ve already won the lottery of life.”
“You might consider starting a gratitude journal where you write down three things every day that you are grateful for.”
“One of the best parts of getting a little older is being able to help younger people. You end up with a little success and suddenly people will ask you for advice–and you think Really? What do I know? I’m still trying to figure it out myself!
“Nothing makes me happier than seeing a young woman emerge from her quarter-life crisis, realize her potential, and see her hard work pay off.”
“Having to make a decision isn’t a burden. Getting to make decisions is a blessing. Try to reframe your thinking into what a gift it is to live in a free country where you have so many choices to make.”
“One of the best ways to figure out who you want to be and how you want to live is to observe others. We learn best by watching and listening, taking it all in.”
“Role models change throughout your life–keep looking for them”
“I’ve always tried to be the most well-read person at the meeting, in the briefing room, during a morning call. It gives me confidence and power.”
“Find the most talented, most knowledgeable, and strong people possible, and add them to your team.”
“The best way to become a leader is to jump in, take a chance, be a good listener, make decisions, and fill a void. If you can demonstrate the qualities of someone that should be listened to and followed, you’ll earn the title of “leader.”
“We all like being liked. We crave it possibly too much. But I’ve learned that being respected is even better.”
