The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Running your own business is no cakewalk, but if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to build something you care about, you can create a very rewarding career. Whether an entrepreneurial endeavor is something you’ve been dreaming about for years or is a notion you’ve only just begun to entertain, here are some inspirational quotes to help you on your path to taking the leap, becoming your own boss, and running your own business as we celebrate the Easter Season.
Empower yourself and realize the importance of contributing to the world by living your talent. Work on what you love. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.
If you want to be an entrepreneur, it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle. It defines you. Forget about vacations, about going home at 6 pm – last thing at night you’ll send emails, first thing in the morning you’ll read emails, and you’’ wake up in the middle of the night. But it’s hugely rewarding as you’re fulfilling something for yourself.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. Always remember that the critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
Mistakes and failures are remarkable learning mechanisms, especially when it comes to business. Most famous entrepreneurs will tell you that they didn’t get to where they are now without hitting a few bumps in the road, but with much work and pray you will still arrive at the destination with the determination to win. Having an idea is one thing, running a business is a completely different thing. It is always helpful to have a basic understanding of business ethics and principles when starting your business.
Don’t take too much advice. Most people who have a lot of advice to give — with a few exceptions — generalize whatever they did. Don’t over-analyze everything. I myself have been guilty of over-thinking problems. Just build things and find out if they work, no one can build it better than yourself.
Before dreaming about the future or making plans, you need to articulate what you already have going for you – as entrepreneurs do, Nobody talks about entrepreneurship as survival, but that’s exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking. Running that first shop taught me business is not financial science; it’s about trading: educating others and selling of ideas.
But as an entrepreneur or a businessman or woman, you have to feel like you can jump out of an Aeroplan because you’re confident that you’ll catch a bird flying by. It’s an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go play because the bird doesn’t come by, but a few times it does. Openly share and talk to people about your idea. Use their lack of interest or doubt to fuel your motivation to make it happen.
Nothing can stop the power of a committed and determined people to make a difference in our society. Why? Because human beings are the most dynamic link to the divine on this planet. Whether you are starting your own business, expanding or simply trying to grow, connecting with other entrepreneurs can help you navigate the difficult road to success. Inspirational quotes can encourage you to work hard, and be innovative which are both key tools for success. Owning and operating your own business is very challenging and can wear a person down quickly, to achieve the success you must be focused and above all you must believe in yourself.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. Businesses don’t just start themselves, and for every successful business, at some point, someone took matters into their own hands and took a leap. Do you have a great idea? A unique eCommerce vision? Or a picture of what your life could look like if you were running your own business? Do you have a passion that you want to share with others? Products that you love and want to share? Products that you want but can never seem to find? If so, you can start building your own door into business-ownership.
The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. Small steps lead to big things, and dreaming about your own business is one of those first, small steps. All of the planning and work you do every day, no matter how menial it might seem, will be the things that set you up for your future. Put your best foot forward every step of the way, and one day you’ll be grateful for the solid foundation you’ve laid, and maybe even astounded by what you’ve built.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. Perseverance. Noun. Persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. If you truly make peace with the fact that challenges will always arise and that success will not occur overnight, then you are well-equipped with a mindset to persevere. Many different motivational quotes are the equivalent of “never give up,” and there’s a good reason for that. It is a perfectly sound, life-changing piece of advice that can be incredibly difficult to accept. If you can internalize it, you’re already ahead of the game.
Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” –Henry Ford (American business magnate)
Sometimes, the only thing holding us back is ourselves. Having a positive mentality can be a game-changer. Don’t let your self-doubt be yet another obstacle–if you know that you can make it happen, you will find a way.
If you push through that feeling of being scared, that feeling of taking a risk, really amazing things can happen. It can be challenging to take a risk. Starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur take away a lot of the traditional financial risks associated with starting a great business. But taking the initiative to put your energy and actions behind one of your ideas can be frightening, too. It can be hard to put yourself out there. What if you fail? Unless you try, you’ll never know.
Dream big. Start small. But most of all, start. Making the decision to go for it is a step that many people never get to. It’s the most overwhelming part. Once you decide to move on to the next steps, everything will start flowing from there. You will face every new challenge as they arise.
Commit to prayer and believe in God for all things and you will have them.
