Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara quotes: Columbian-American actress and model talks about confidence, success, work ethic, and more.

“The only way to gain something is to take a risk at something.”

“Confident people have a way of carrying themselves that makes others more attracted to them.”

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique.  Just like everyone else.”

“Do not take life too seriously.  You will never get out of it alive.”

“Never take no personally.  Sometimes people tell you no for a reason that has nothing to do with you.  You must keep going.”

“I’ve taken a million risks.  When I moved to L.A. six years ago to start acting, after being a TV host, I’d never taken an acting class.  But I said I’ll try it for six months, and if nothing happens, I’ll go home.  What is the worst that can happen?  Now I’m nominated for an Emmy, so it worked out.  The only way to gain something is to take a risk at something.  I’ve been rejected for many jobs, many movies, but I don’t take it as a failure.  I just move on.”

“Often I haven’t been the youngest or most intelligent girl in the room, but I always, always am the hardest-working one.  Dreams don’t happen if you just sit down and accept things.”

“I like business, and the truth is I save way more than I spend.  I invest.  I plan for the future.  I have a special eye for opportunities and work harder than anyone might expect.”

“I have always believed self-expression is essential to happiness.  I’ve seen how hard nurses work, and I wanted to give them an opportunity to proudly embrace their feminine side, their funny side, or their sassy side, while still being professional.  I think it’s all about being authentic in a compassionate and inspiring way.”

“When you’re single and you have a kid, you worry.  You worry everyday, you wake up and if you don’t have enough money to pay for his medical insurance, for his food, for someone to help with him while you work, a nanny – that drove me to never be lazy, not fear failure, and always try to create opportunities for myself.  I think that helped me with the motivation and to keep me walking straight.”

“I think every woman has insecurities.  Men have insecurities!  I wake up and I see I’m getting old, a million things.  Today I’m bloated.  You would be a robot if you didn’t get insecure.  Insecurities are great sometimes; they make you work harder and change things.  They can be motivation.”

“I don’t see anything bad with getting help from somebody that loves you and treats you well.  That’s an amazing job and a lot of effort to do it right.  I think the beauty of a woman nowadays is that we can do everything.  We have more options and we should do everything we can.  But why not have support and love?  And if somebody can help you in any way, why not take the help?”

“I’m fearless, I don’t complain.  Even when horrible things happen to me, I go on.”

“I can turn around and scream and get angry, but I turn around and I forget about it.”

“I understand English; I read and write English perfectly, but the accent won’t go away.”

“I love jewelry – rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it.”

“I’ve always been pretty confident.  I grew up in a family of strong women, so I was always taught to be proud of who I am, the way I am.”

“Beauty is really all about confidence.  If you feel beautiful, then you are beautiful.”

“Confidence is sexy!  I’m comfortable with my body and not afraid to show it off.”

“And you know things have changed… how much you take care of yourself is a reality.  We all age and you have to embrace it.”

“To be a pretty girl, to be a voluptuous girl, has opened many doors for me.  I would be ungrateful to say it’s all because of my brains and my talent.  I have stayed working for 20-something years, so there must be something else behind the guns.”

“If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked.”

“I hate to work out.  I get in a bad mood when I have to do it!”

“I use Spanish dancing as a way to exercise.  I’ve done that for my whole life.”

“I don’t think any woman enjoys or is happy about aging.  Well, from the beauty point of view.  I love that your priorities change and you know so much about life and a lot of things are easier now.  But beauty-wise, it sucks.  We can’t really control it.  You can make it a little better but it happens to all of us and we have to embrace it.  It’s not fun.”

“I guess at the end of the day, all women like to be appreciated and treated with respect and kindness.”

“I like TV, I feel comfortable there and I’m willing to take every opportunity that’s offered to me.”

“You have to be on top of it all the time.”

“I didn’t want to be an actress.  I wanted to be a dentist, but you never know what life will bring you.”

“I’m happy with what I’ve achieved.”
