1.We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents and interests.
2.It is the ultimate luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a very clear path to happiness.
3.I look forward to the day when half our homes are run by men and half our companies and institutions are run by women. When that happens, it won’t just mean happier women and families; it will mean more successful businesses and better lives for us all.
It is the ultimate luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a very clear path to happiness- Sheryl Sandberg
4.What I tell everyone, and I really do for myself is, I have a long-run dream, which is I want to work on stuff that I think matters.
5.Leadership is not bullying and leadership is not aggression. Leadership is the expectation that you can use your voice for good. That you can make the world a better place.
6.We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in.
7. I hope you find true meaning, contentment, and passion in your life. I hope you navigate the difficult times and come out with greater strength and resolve. I hope you find whatever balance you seek with your eyes wide open. And I hope that you – yes, you – have the ambition to lean in to your career and run the world. Because the world needs you to change it.
8. Being confident and believing in your own self-worth is necessary to achieving your potential.
9.A truly equal world would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes.”
