15 Quotes That Will Get You Everything You Want

You have big dreams. You are equipped with the things you need to get there, but sometimes you need a little shove and motivation. These quotes will remind you why you love public relations and help you get everything you want. Keep calm, push on.

“I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they’re your parents. Because if you’re the kind of person who senses there’s something out there for you beyond whatever it is you’re expected to do – if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you’re not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably become as ordinary as they expect you to be.” – Kelly Cutrone
