Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, credited her mother as the most influential role model in her life. Her mother made her feel that she could reach for the stars. If she failed along the way, it is okay. “Failure is not the opposite of success, it is a stepping stone to success”, her mother would say.

Kat Cole, Chief Operations Officer of Cinnabon, received an assurance from her mother. When she was presented with an opportunity to grow into management ranks from being a Hooters waitress, she did not believe in herself and was afraid to step out of her comfort zone. Her mother encouraged her and said, “You can do anything and I’m expecting you to do everything”.

Bill Gates was inspired by his mother to see the bigger picture. On his wedding day, his mother wrote, “From those to whom much is given, much is expected”. Gates’ mother “pressed her son” to get into philanthropy after Microsoft’s stock made Gates wealthy. Eventually, Gates began a program at Microsoft to raise money for the United Way.

It is true indeed that behind every great person is a great mother! Mothers are always there to inspire, assure and directs their children to discover themselves and be great at the field they chose!
Cheers to all the great mothers in the world!
