So on the eve of Priyanka Chopra's birthday we have brought you some quotes on success by the actress that will inspire you to dream and achieve big:

Don’t try to squeeze into a glass slipper. Instead, shatter the glass ceiling.

When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then sit back and let people wonder how you did it.

I think it’s great to be flawed. I am hugely flawed, and I like It this way.

There’s only one of you. Understand who you are, your uniqueness.

I know I’m flawed but perfect is boring anyway. Flawed is good.

Be true to who you are. Be courageous, Be selfless, Be love. Courage comes from knowing your truth and standing up for it

Let me make my decisions without shaming me or trolling me. Give me those opportunities that men have enjoyed for such a long time.

I don’t like the word’ Glass Ceiling’. It puts my ambition in a box. It doesn’t mean that glass ceilings don’t exist. But I want to be more than that

I buy my own diamonds. I don’t need someone to buy them for me. When a guy comes into my life it’ll not be for the diamonds, It’ll not be for the cars. It’ll not be for the homes.

The one thing I wear best is my confidence. That’s what I’d recommend to everyone. It’s a big turn-on.

You don’t have to try to be anybody else. Whatever you are, however you are, It’s fine. Nobody’s perfect.

Ambition is like a curse word for a woman. When a man is ambitious, he is called driven. When a woman is ambitious, it’s a bad thing.
