Let’s face it. Michelle Obama is one of the strongest and worthiest women in America. She has done so much as an individual for others and as a Former First Lady, she has continued to showcase her values off to the world. “At Top Tier Manhattan we believe in strong women. They are the future just as much as anyone else. The fact that women have worked hard and pushed barriers through to make it where they are is nothing less than excellent. Michelle Obama stands for strength, patience, perseverance and she can definitely teach us a thing of two about being a leader,” says Hannah Wolosek, managing director of Top Tier Manhattan. Her credentials in general stand out. She is a Lawyer, Author and Former First Lady. Intellect runs in her veins as she went to Harvard and portrayed greatness effortlessly.
It’s only right that we get inspired from time to time. “At Top Tier Manhattan, inspiration is always flowing in our office. We make sure to utilize it to our best ability and because Michelle Obama is the best in this criteria, we wanted to share 10 of her quotes to portray how she inspires all of us to be the best we can be and live life to fullest,” says Hannah Wolosek of Top Tier Manhattan.
“If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee you that.”
“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.”
“Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.”
“We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.”
“When I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”
“Success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”
“We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”
“Choose people who lift you up.”
“We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean… and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect.”
“When I get up and work out, I’m working out just as much for my girls as I am for me, because I want them to see a mother who loves them dearly, who invests in them, but who also invests in herself. It’s just as much about letting them know as young women that it is okay to put yourself a little higher on your priority list.”
