Winning the Daily Battle of Being an Entrepreneur

As an entrepreneur, I believe that inspiration, motivation, and support are extremely beneficial to the success of my business, but also to how I’m feeling with the progress. When things are going good, I have better focus, more creativity, increased production – It’s a feeling that drives me to do more. Those great feelings may only be fleeting, happening in a small window that you need to grasp and hold onto before getting back to the grind.

But there are times when those feelings fade away and typically it’s because some challenge is presented. Business owners and entrepreneurs can hit a wall, lose a client, or just simply have ‘one of those days’ where nothing seems to go right. It’s on those days that I bring to mind my favorite motivational and inspirational quotes, which help my mindset and get me moving forward. These thoughts are like an extra jolt of caffeine in my coffee – they allow me to think and act positively while pushing through the obstacle of the moment.

These quotes give me the strength to power through, and breathe new life into the opportunities before me. Here are some of my favorites; I hope they can do for you what they effectively do for me!

“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.” – Sir Richard Branson

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”

“Work like there is someone working 24 hours to take it away from you.” – Mark Cuban

“You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.”

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”- Colin Powell

“Train your mind to see the good in every situation.”
