Written Quotes to Inspire Your Next Business Venture
We all experience fear when faced with new ideas, especially ones that encourage us to step outside of our comfort zone. Is your fear stopping you from launching your next great business idea? Here are some motivational quotes designed to help you step out of that ever-present comfort zone and inspire you to be great.
The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you can’t learn anything from being perfect. – Adam Osborne
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Mistakes fuel our entrepreneurial spirit and help us realize how to propel forward towards success. Use them as the great learning tools that they are. Instead of hanging yourself out to dry over a mistake that anyone could make, use it and learn from it and then get over it.
Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. – Winston Churchill
Enthusiasm is what drives you, you aspire to be great, to set out to be the next big thing – don’t lose that enthusiasm. If the people around you don’t share in it, don’t share it with them. Enthusiasm is what takes an idea and turns it into a reality. You cannot expect your customers and target audience to be enthused by your idea, if you are not displaying enthusiasm yourself.
One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. – Andre Gide
You only get out of a business what you put into it. This means diving headfirst into an opportunity that you know has a chance of failure. Leave behind your doubts and take the plunge into a new venture. Working for yourself is its own reward and its own downfall, depending on what you allow it to be.
Try, try, try, and keep on trying is the rule that must be followed to become an expert in anything. – W. Clement Stone
Eliminate any excuses; stop blaming your lack of motivation on lack of time or not having the tools. The more you want something the more you should put into it. Never stop trying and always put your best foot forward. If you don’t try, you can’t succeed and you will fail.
Doubt, of whatever kind, can be ended by action alone. – Thomas Carlyle
Doubting yourself is normal, but allowing the doubt to talk you out of pursuing your passion is not. It’s okay to doubt yourself, in the beginning and every day after that, as long as you use your doubt for fuel and not for excuses.
If you are going to ask yourself life-changing questions, be sure to do something with the answers. – Bo Bennett
What good is having an idea if you don’t put it into fruition? Many businesses never get off the ground because people hold themselves back. Instead of dooming yourself to a life of working for others, challenge yourself to rise above and become your own boss. Chances are, you’ll never look back and you’ll never regret it.
