Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum quotes: on having thick skin, counting blessings, living a double life, and more.

“Pursue success, long after any sane person would have given up.”

“My philosophy is that, in life, you have to want something.  If you just say ‘la-la-la’ and go through life without a goal, nothing will happen.”

“There are people who wait for the phone to ring, wait for things to happen, and then there are people who are dreamers and planners.  That’s how I roll.”

“Just because people say no to you, doesn’t mean you should say no to yourself.”

“If you are talented, you can really do anything.  And if your heart is at the right place and you have the passion for it, you can go for it and do it.”

“You shouldn’t wait for other people to make special things happen.  You have to create your own memories.”

“I just think if you have an emotion and you let that go that moment might pass.  If you don’t open the door for the person to come in, it would have just been like, ‘Nice to meet you – goodbye.’”

“If you love what you do, then you always find the time.”

“If you pick something you actually enjoy doing, you have fun every day of your life.”

“I’m not saying that everyone should swim with sharks, but sometimes you have to jump over your own shadow in order to learn something that you will never forget for the rest of your life.  Then you know you can conquer your fears.”

“When you sign yourself up for what you’re doing, you have to take care of yourself.”

“If you have issues with family, friends, and people at work, try and solve these issues head on so you can move on and concentrate on having the life you want.”

“You have to just do your thing.  As long as you don’t hurt anybody along the way.”

“I think it’s important to get your surroundings as well as yourself into a positive state – meaning surround yourself with positive people, not the kind who are negative and jealous of everything you do.”

“I like to dream, but I like to make things happen.”

“I was a good kid.  My parents laid rules out for me, and I followed them.”

“I wanted to be a fashion designer.”

“Being a Victoria’s Secret model… was always my dream.”

“When I came out of school I didn’t even think that modeling was a job.”

“I don’t think I could not have been with an artist of some kind, someone creative.”

“Modeling is a great job to be in.  You travel the world.  You stay in one of the most fantastic places in the world.  It is not always as glamorous as it looks, it’s a lot of hard work, too, but it’s a lot of fun at the same time.”

“I am someone who always gets up again, even if there are setbacks.  I have a survivor instinct.  I’m not sure where it comes from, but probably from all the little things that make you into who you are.”

“You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles.”

“Because of my job, I learned to be confident a little earlier than most.  People pick you apart when you’re in the public eye – you’re wearing the wrong shoes or you have ugly nail polish on or they’re wondering if you got your boobs done – so you have to be a strong person right away.”

“I think we should all have more confidence.  You have to sometimes push yourself a little more.”

“I have a normal life and I have this glamorous life, but to me it’s two different things.”

“I’m quite good at multitasking, but I have to do things immediately.  I have a book where I write things down: major topics, deadlines, things like that.  Every few months, I start a new book.”

“I don’t think of getting older as looking better or worse; it’s just different.  You change, and that’s okay.  Life is about change.  I feel comfortable in my skin and comfortable with aging.”

“I wouldn’t push my kids to do anything.  I want them to be happy, healthy, and I want them to be who they want to be, you know?”

“I think if you give your best as a parent, then that’s all you can do.”

“It’s important to teach your kids the value of being active by setting a good example.”

“I think if you put a smile on people’s faces, they give that back to you.”

“I learned from working in the fashion world that if I have a day when I feel slapped in the face, or if someone has been mean, I just have to get back up and it will be another day.  I think about what I’m grateful for.  I look at my kids and my husband and think, ‘Wow, I’m a really lucky person.'”

“But all the money in the world cannot make you happy either, so there has to be a balance.”

“I don’t know why I got so lucky.  I have to pinch myself often and say, ‘Is this just a dream?'”

“I count my blessings all the time because I get to do this really fun job.”

“To me, life is about creating memories.  The regular days kind of just blend in.  You have to create special times so that you will always remember them.”

“I don’t have regrets.  A lot of things didn’t always go well and that made me a stronger person today.  You learn from your mistakes.  I’m worried that if I changed anything I wouldn’t be here, where I am today.  I don’t want anything to change and I’m happy with how everything went.”

“You have to treat yourself every once in a while, get to the fun stuff!”

“For me, life is about enjoying yourself because you only live once.  We should try to make the most of things and follow our dreams.”

“But I think the most important thing is to find the love of your life and have fun in love.  And enjoy and appreciate what comes to you.”

“Success is to be happy in life.”
