Serena Williams is one of the best female tennis stars of all time and she's an inspiration to women and men alike for her optimistic mentality and her ability to continuously grow. Most people don't know, but she was raised in one of the roughest pars of the United States, yes she really did grow up in Compton. Deep in these negative woods, Serena became very fond of the game of tennis, and at just the young age of 4. She was home schooled by her father alongside her older sister Venus. To this very day, they are both strongly coached by both her parents who instilled great values in her. Here's her 12 most stimulating statements...
High Self Worth:
1.) "I'm really exciting. I smile a lot, I win a lot, and I'm really sexy."
Preparation Vs. Luck:
2.) "Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come."
3.) "You can be whatever size you are, and you can be beautiful both inside and out. We're always told what's beautiful and what's not, and that's not right."
4.) "Everyone's dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard."
5.) "I've had to learn to fight all my life - got to learn to keep smiling. If you smile things will work out."
6.) "I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn't easy - it took me a while."
7.) "If you can keep playing tennis when somebody is shooting a gun down the street, that's concentration."
8.) "Since I don't look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good."
Be A Fighter:
9.) "I've always been a fighter and I've always fought through things my whole life."
10.) "If anything, you know, I think losing makes me even more motivated."
Commitment to Excellence:

12.) "All my life I'd woken up to tennis, tennis, tennis. Even if I don't go to practise, I'm thinking about it all day."
