Hoda Kotb, the newly named co-anchor of Today, will likely be asking for a raise soon. News broke Wednesday that she and Savannah Guthrie — the other half of the show’s first all-female lead anchor team — are earning salaries that combined are $11 million less than fired co-anchor Matt Lauer collected. So, in case Hoda needs some inspiration — and doesn’t everyone need help reaching New Year’s goals? — we thought we would remind her of some of the words of wisdom she has offered others through her Instagram feed. Just try to read these quotes without feeling like you’re going to rock 2018!
