What is Your favorite Inspirational Quote to Stay Motivated for your Business?

Discussion in 'General Business' started by Crystal_Jobs, Sep 16, 2014.

    Motivation can only last a while; and a businessperson needs to always stay motivated 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week to stay on top of his game.

    People get their motivation from the church, special friends, clubs etc.

    As part of my arsenal of motivational tools, I keep myself motivated with the words of either living or long gone successful persons.

    However, let us share our favorite quotes here. You never can tell; somebody might need to read that your favorite quote right now.

    Well, as a totaly changed person in last 10 months, I can say a lot of things about motivation. I have read motivational texts, listened a lot of motivational speakers, watched their videos and seminars. I have tried to find motivation from all meaningful people who have left their mark on this world. People from all areas of society. Some are alive, some passed away. I did that a couple of hours a day. Everyday. Guess what happened ? I found not only motivation, but knowledge also. People lose their motivation because they don`t have a really good reason for their quest. They have a superficial reason or reasons. ONE reason is your motivation, it`s all you need. That WHY ? needs to be deep, really meaningful, it needs to be bigger than you. Definitely NOT some material thing. And yes, you need to remind yourself every single day what your WHY ? is. Thank God for all those people who inspire us and give us motivation. Yes, they instantly lift us up. But you need to find your own permanent motivational reasons to succeed in your life. Something like; I will succeed so I could give my children phenomenal education and GOOD life / I will be a role model to people, and I will be their inspiration / I will change not only my life, but lifes of other people / My family will be proud of me and my achievements. As long as you know your true WHY ? nothing can stop you.

    I actualy love Zig Ziglar`s : You don`t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
    It gives you hope, and you feel great right away : )
    And Nelson Mandela`s ; The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
    Have a nice day ; )

    I like:

    A successful entrepreneur is someone...

    ...who is stubborn enough...

    ...to stick around long enough...

    ...to get lucky.

    I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 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

    What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve - Napoleon Hill

    There are no secrets, only what you don't know yet - No idea who said that.

    Twee - "If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up".

    My favourite - "Run like you've stolen something". Always makes me laugh (I'm easily amused)

    My own one - if you rely upon an "inspirational quote" to motivate you when you're in business, then you've already lost

    "Work hard, and don't take any s$%t." -Me
    "If you don't create it, someone else will." -Me
    "There is no substitute for hard work." -Jason Calacanis
    "Don't compare yourself to other people." -Jack Dorsey
    "There are no shortcuts in business." -I have no idea, or I just made it up...not sure

    Personally, I think we derive more motivation from our experiences and circumstances than anything else. Successful people come from all walks of life, but perhaps the most motivated are those who have known what it is like to truly struggle...and to overcome, against all odds.

    I should shut up now, my ISP cuts me off when I reach a certain sappy inspirational level...and I'm motivating myself to get back to work. :)

    Happy hustlin', hustlers.
