The road to success as an entrepreneur can feel like an uphill hike- except, you're also blindfolded, hungry, and weighed down by a few boulders. In other words: it's not easy.
Don't forget, however, that entrepreneurship can also be extremely rewarding. It takes a special type of person to have the courage to follow their dreams. Here are a few inspiring quotes to help you along the way.
Lesson #1: Go for it now- don't let fear stop you.
"To any entrepreneur: if you want to do it, do it now, If you don't, you're going to regret it." -Catherine Cook, co-founder of MyYearbook
"Do. Or do not. There is no try." -Yoda, Jedi Master
"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." -Chinese proverb
"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear." -Rosa Parks, civil rights activist
Lesson #2: You will fail- and that will bring you one step closer to success.
"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." -Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist
"Fail often so you can succeed sooner." -Tom Kelley, Ideo partner
"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 again in my life. And that is why I succeed." -Michael Jordan
Lesson #3: It may take longer than you think to reach your goals, so enjoy the process.
"The media wants overnight successes (so they have someone to tear down). Ignore them. Ignore the early adopter critics that never have enough to play with. Ignore your investors that want proven tactics and predictable instant results. Listen instead to your real customers, to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that's how long it's going to take, guys." -Seth Gordin, author, marketer, entrepreneur
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity." -Amelia Earhart, first female aviator to fly over Atlantic Ocean, author
Lesson #4: Do what you love: the rest will come naturally.
"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you." -Maya Angelou, author, poet, dancer, actress, singer
Lesson #5: Recognize your power.
"Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent." -Eleanor Roosevelt, politician, diplomat, activist, former First Lady of the USA
"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." -Alice Walker, author and activist
