Fly Girl, actress, dancer, singer, performer, entrepreneur… no matter what new endeavor she sets her eyes on, J-Lo rocks it. Luckily for the rest of us, throughout the years she has shared wisdom about everything from show business to success. Read on to learn some of her best nuggets of wisdom.

On Believing in Yourself:

  • “Doubt is a killer. You just have to know who you are and what you stand for.”
  • “I just knew that was what I wanted to do. I was going to perform as a singer; I was going to perform as a dancer, and I was, you know, going to do movies and be an actress. I was going to do it or die trying. That’s what my life was.”
  • “I only do what my gut tells me to. I think it’s smart to listen to other people’s advice, but at the end of the day, you’re the only one who can tell you what’s right for you.”

On Finding Success:

  • “It’s a shame to call somebody a ‘diva’ simply because they work harder than everybody else.”
  • “Don’t push your weaknesses, play with your strengths.”

On Perseverance:

  • “I love what I do. I have an insatiable appetite for creating things and wanting to get better at what I do and always growing and never stopping. I don’t know. It’s something I was born with. It’s definitely a drive. It’s a passion, and it’s driven for a love for what I do.”
  • “I always knew I wanted to be a performer, and my mother started taking me to dance classes when I was five. My mother is a teacher, my father works at an insurance company. When I said I wanted to be a performer, people went, “Yeah, right.” You don’t do that where I come from.”
