“You can’t be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it. You have to go down the chute,” funny woman Tina Fey told us, while Cher said:

“If you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner.”

These life hacks from women who have been there, done that, remind us not to reinvent the wheel, and urge us to look for the road less travelled.

From practical guidance for navigating this thing called life in the best way possible to a reminder to reach a little further, there are so many women in our lives who have taught us. They’ve shown us how to forgive with grace. How to fight for what we want. How to hustle. How to be better and make the world a better place. They are our sisters, our mothers, our friends and our mentors. They are the editors, the teachers, the leaders. In our lives, between the pages and our screens.  And it’s to these women that we pay tribute to on International Women’s Day. So, here’s some more we found in our travels to start your day right:

Go your own way

“Trust in what you think,” said American portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. “If you splinter yourself and try to please everyone, you can’t.”

#Hustle with care  

“Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in,” Hillary Clinton told us.

No doubt

“Doubt is a killer,” says Jennifer Lopez. “You just have to know who you are and what you stand for.”

Just do it

“The most effective way to do it, is to do it,” Amelia Earhart told us. (And she did: she was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.) Like Author of Eat, Pray, Love Elizabeth Gilbert told us: “Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.”

Girls just wanna have fun

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun,” femme fatale Katharine Hepburn said.

Be bossy

And this from Tina Fey’s best friend, Amy Poehler: “I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind learning.” (The title of Fey’s book? Bossypants.)

BYO hero, baby

“Above all, be the heroine of your own life,” said Nora Ephron, American journalist, writer, filmmaker and the woman who gave us When Harry Met Sally among so many more.
