Famous quotes about successful entrepreneurs
To become successful in life, you should have ambitions. You should also have smart work ethics, inspiration, and motivation. The entrepreneurs should always grip on the idea of their business constantly. It is better to have a successful mentor to look up to and motivate with conviction. You should not make the same mistakes again. Every entrepreneur needs a caring push once in awhile. It’s always better to go through the experienced successful entrepreneur’s autobiography, which will make you feel that they also went through same situations in life. There are no short cuts for success but to work hard. You need to face everything in a positive way to reach the heights. Here we will discuss some quotes by a few successful entrepreneurs around the world, which can be inspirational for future business tycoons.
Steve jobs, the co-founder of Apple, said that “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
This is an important message for everyone to follow, not just the entrepreneurs. You need to live your own life with your own ideas. Don’t let others decide what the best is for you. Decision making is an important part of everyone’s life. The more we depend on or are forced to follow someone else’s decision, the more we are prone to fail. We should listen to our heart and decide on what we should do rather than blindly following someone.
Oprah Winfrey, the world famous media owner, producer and television anchor quote “Every time you state what you want or believe, you’re the first to hear it. It’s a message to both you and others about what you think are possible. Don’t put a ceiling on yourself.”
This is again another version of the importance of decision making. When we state what we want to do, it comes from our heart and we are the ones to hear it first. There’s no one better than us to understand what we are capable of and hence, our own intuitions should be ready to stand out firmly on them. Moreover, we should never consider ourselves any less than the others.
Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and richest person in the world, has quoted “It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.”

Bill Gates advice people that just as we celebrate our successes, we should always remember the lessons we learned through our failures.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and one of the world’s youngest rich person said “Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.”
You need to move very fast and should have the ability to break all barriers of the world of logic. And if you don’t have the ability break these barriers you are not moving fast enough.

Henry Ford, the founder of ford motor company says that “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently… A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.”
Whenever you face any failure in your life or business, it means you that begin all over again with more intelligence that you gain from the lessons that the failure taught you. He adds that for a business devoted to service the only problem to face will be of profits. And this could be very high and risky.

Learning is very important to succeed in your business as well as life. Education really motivates everyone.
Jeff Bezos, the Chairman and CEO of Amazon said: “I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.”
This is a strong advice for everyone who’s afraid of taking a risk in life. It is more important to try rather than getting scared of failure. Business may succeed or fail. What you lose is only some money which you can make again in many ways. You may have to work a lot harder the next time, but the lessons you learn in failure is far superior. It is very important to try to learn them. The ones who have tried will always offer support and the ones who ridicule your failure will be those who never bothered to try. Instead of worrying about the failure, you must feel proud that you at least tried.
These are important lessons to learn for Entrepreneurs. In fact, these are advice shared their experiences. They have all worked very hard and reached the success level after stepping through small or large failures only. So whether you are starting your own business or planning to expand or trying to improve the current business, it is better to find a mentor or a guide who can lead you to better ideas and take you to success. Owning and running your own business is a tiresome job, but these experiences can be really inspirational and throw insightful ideas to achieve your goal. It is always better to learn from the bitter experiences of others than experience the bitterness ourselves.
