Need some inspiration? Just turn to Michelle Obama.
For years, she's motivated people through her words of wisdom and commitment to change, championing causes close to her heart like supporting military families, teaching children how to live healthier lives and promoting education.
There's also her impressive résumé, which includes her time as a lawyer, public service leader, best-selling author and first lady of the United States. And, more recently, she's added production company founder to the list along with her husband and former president Barack Obama.
Through it all, the 58-year-old has been candid about the challenges she's faced—and overcome.
"Success isn't about how your life looks to others. It's about how it feels to you," Obama told graduates during her 2012 commencement speech at Oregon State University. "We realized that being successful isn't about being impressive, it's about being inspired. That's what it means to be true to yourself."
And while it's impossible to list them all, here are just some of her most inspirational quotes.
