Jennifer Kate

Jennifer Hudson quotes: about God, losing weight, her advice for haters, and more.

“Dreams do come true.  If anyone’s proof of that, it’s me.”

“Don’t block your blessings.  Don’t let doubt stop you from getting where you want to be.”

“If you have a dream, you can achieve that dream, you can achieve that goal.  You just gotta go for it.  But it also lets you know, that there is a price to pay.”

“We all have the power to choose how we are going to handle every situation we are faced with throughout our lives.  We are in control of the decision we make whether it’s about work, relationships, parenting or our health.”

“That isn’t about money, fame or power.  It’s about will, dedication, commitment and knowing your self-worth.  You can be poor as dirt and have those traits.  Money can’t buy you values.  You just need to know what is important to you and then feel secure in your pursuit to achieve that.”

“You have to accept the plan and realize that if you slip – and you might – you can’t use that as a reason to give up or stop.”

“The only way you can sustain a permanent change is to create a new way of thinking, acting and being.”

“If you’re asking yourself why I have this success and you don’t, don’t be angry with me – stop and ask yourself what your issues are that are holding you back.”

“Don’t be afraid of the answers.  Be afraid of not asking the questions.”

“Appearance can always be changed, but the talent stays the same.”

“You’re not living if you don’t go out and try things for yourself.”

“If you can break down those walls you’ve spent so many years building to protect yourself, you can achieve anything.”

“Indeed, God is always with us even when things look hopeless.”

“God uses people to help others.  I only pray my faith is strong enough to get me through what I have to face.”

“Sometimes God makes better choices for us than we could have ever made for ourselves.”

“If it’s meant for me, it will be.  Those words are my mantra in life, and it has never let me down.”

“Loving yourself means caring enough to make the hard decisions in your life.”

“I am completely in charge of the choices I make about what I am doing to lose weight and get healthy.  And you know what?  We all have this power.  Don’t be angry with me for something good I’ve done for myself.  Be angry with yourself for not having the courage to do the same in your own life.”

“You have to want weight-loss success so badly that no mountain, river or ocean could keep you from reaching your goals.  If you have that drive, passion and commitment, there is no way you won’t get there.”

“The important message I heard about working out and what I want to share is that you create your own opportunities and your own limitations.”

“If you can’t take responsibility for your own well-being, you will never take control over it.  Gaining control over your health and well-being is one of those times in your life that you get to be completely selfish and not feel bad about it.  If you want to meet your goals, you have to make it about you.  You have to make it work for you and you alone.  Anything less is a setup for failure.”

“I accept any challenge.  I’ve always had a love for making things my own.”

“Ever since grammar school, I knew I wanted to be famous – I always wanted to be a singer.”

“Even though I am extremely blessed to have accomplished many of my goals at such a young age, I am still reaching, still striving.”

“I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy.”

“I’m proud to represent the average woman.”

“Traditional values are big in my life.”

“I don’t want to work with anyone who has not sat down with me and has gotten to know me.  I don’t want you writing for who you think Jennifer is or the public persona of… because that’s not who I am.  It’s my shell, it’s the brand, it’s the celebrity, but it’s not the person.”

“I try to keep people around me who’ve been around me, who’ve seen me struggle.  They know how dedicated I am and how hard I’ve worked.  They know me – not the Jennifer from American Idol and Dreamgirls, but the real Jennifer.”

“I defy all the odds being African American, living in a wealthy neighborhood and being a working mom.  It’s too many foreign things in one person!  It’s so ignorant.  Race is just one of them.  I face them all.  I hate that these things have happened, but I’m glad that women are taking a stand for themselves.  They should have the right to be able to do that.  And no one’s power should be able to take over someone else’s.  That’s not cool.”

“My whole life, through the good things, the bad things, I know nothing is guaranteed.  I’ve seen the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows and everything in between, just like Shug.  But what my mother, my grandmother, and all the powerful women in my family instilled in us – our faith, and how to make it on our own – carries me through.”

“God is what I feel certain about.  No matter what, he’s always there and that’s the thing that keeps me – that is the greatest gift – I could not sit here right now this happy without him.”

“I have the greatest sadness to be sad over, but then look at the joy that I have too.”

“Family makes a house a home.”

“I want to be around for a long time, singing and making albums and movies.”

“I wouldn’t change a thing.  Every experience is a lesson learned.”
