The Best Quotes for Entrepreneurs
It’s Friday. Let’s keep it, light folks. What do you say?
I love inspirational quotes. Quotes from successful people can inspire us to think a little differently. Here are six of my most beloved quotes for entrepreneurs.
“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.” – Chris Grosser
Luck is the result of the strategy. If you wait around to get lucky, you will be waiting a long while. Create your own luck.
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible”!” – Audrey Hepburn
Nothing is impossible. Hepburn’s words should always resonate with any entrepreneur. No formidable foe is too large to overcome. There is always a way to succeed. Sell it to yourself!
“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” – Thomas Jefferson
You are the actions you carry out. The person you are isn’t the person you think you are or the person you want to be, it is the person you are as a result of your actions. Be who you want to be by taking action.
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan
Ah, not being afraid to fail straight from the man who won a lot. Being good at something means having been bad a lot more things. Failure is our teacher. Failure is our opportunity to respond or to fold up like a lawn chair.
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey
You control your own destiny. Others around you do not control who you are, or who you are meant to be. You define you. Every decision you make is a new piece to your character’s ultimate puzzle. Accept personal responsibility into your life.
“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda
Ah yes, just make things happen! Yoda knew exactly what he was talking about when he essentially told those of the galaxy to accept nothing less than results. This quote is applicable to those who want a good mind frame set before going into a new project.
Enjoy the weekend my friends.
