You Are a Winner!

Excerpts taken from Mary Kay Ash's 1991 Seminar speech.

If you were to ask me the major problem women experience, I'd have to say it is that we don't have confidence in ourselves. We don't believe in our God-given ability.

God planted the seeds of greatness within every one of us, and it's up to you to reach down within yourself and bring those seeds into fruition.

God didn't have time to make a nobody, just a somebody. You are somebody.

Confidence can propel you into the position to become the person God meant you to be.

The word enthusiasm comes from the Greek words en and theos, or "God within."

Sometimes when you act enthusiastic, you become enthusiastic! I don't understand it, but it works!

Fake it till you make it! Act enthusiastic, and it will happen.

If God is within you, you can't help but be enthusiastic about life and all of its possibilities.

Never give up.


Many times you will be surrounded by adversity, but no matter what, don't give up! Success is just around the corner for the person who refuses to quit.

I believe women can do anything they want to if they want it badly enough and are willing to pay the price.

We started our Company with tremendously high ideals, and we have refused to lower them. I believe women can be successful and feminine.

Together, we have led countless women to a better way of life.

I want you to remember that you truly are wonderful. When God created you, He had a beautiful and special plan for your life. And He created you with the ability and talent you need to be the beautiful creature He destined you to be.

You already have the seeds of greatness in you.
