Well, with such a huge amount of success, it’s natural for you to be wise. Whatever she says empowers women and inspires each one of us. Here are some motivational quotes by her:
“Just be yourself, there is no one better.”
This quote is not implying that there is no one better than you. Please keep in mind that this quote is not intended to make you feel overconfident, it simply implies that we must love and trust ourselves. On top of that, we must believe in who we are and should know what we can become. Just be yourself and whatever it is you are passionate about, do it with pure dedication. Nothing and no one will be able to stop you from being successful.
“I’m intimidated by the fear of being average.”
There is no harm in being average, for a person reaches the stage of being an average before being perfect. However, Swift means to imply a simple yet deep message here. She meant that she has the fear of staying at an average level. In simple words, if you have reached an average level of your ability and you stay at that level itself, it means that you’re not developing your skills. Getting stuck at a level can be a great obstacle in your journey to success. So, we must never be satisfied after reaching an average level and must always aim for perfection.
“Music is my shining light, my favorite thing in the world.”
This quote is about nothing but one simple thing we all spend years looking for: passion. We all know that music is Taylor’s passion and that she works very hard to make her dreams come true. For a lot of people, their passion is all they have and through their passion, they want to achieve the things they want in life. This is what Taylor did and she beautifully explained her love for her music in this short and simple quote. We must always focus on following our passion and success will be with us before we know it.
“There’s more to life than dating the boy on the football team.”
This one is for all the young girls out there. You are in high school and you like this bulky and good looking jock who is really good at sports and super popular among girls. All you want is this guy’s attention and you are willing to do anything for it, even hurt yourself. What’s the worst that can happen? You would be sad and heartbroken and won’t appreciate other beautiful things in life. It’s not that big of a deal, right? Wrong. Look at Taylor Swift.
Look at her and you’ll know that there’s more to life than that. Learn something from her instead of hurting yourself.
