Are you a young entrepreneur? Are you looking for a little burst of motivation to send you in the right direction?
This is designed to be a quick little inspirational piece for all young entrepreneurs on a Monday morning. I personally love inspirational quotes. Whenever I’m feeling down I look at a list of motivational quotes to get myself back up. I find that if you can motivate yourself in this world, you’ll be far ahead of most people.
I wanted to share my favorite inspirational quotes for young entrepreneurs. I’ll also share why these quotes motivate me so much.
“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” — Seth Godin
You want to know what’s holding you back from your dream life? The first word of the sentence is your answer. Whenever I’m feeling lazy I look at this quote and realize that my laziness is only going to prevent me from reaching my goals. Time is too precious to be wasted.
“Once you’ve removed all the noise, it’s easier to see what really matters to you. When you stop listening to what other people think you should find important (mostly media, marketing and subliminal messages), you get a chance to see what is important to you.” — Jonathan Mead
There are just far too many distractions. When I started writing this article I had Facebook open and had a few chats going on. This quote reminded me that distractions like Facebook are only going to prevent me from hitting my targets. As easy as it is to get distracted, it’s important to schedule distraction-free time.
“If you enter a niche because you’re following the dollars, you wont keep it up. It’s too much work, and you will get tired and frustrated and you will eventually fold.” — Gary Vaynerchuk
Are you chasing after the big bucks? This is an excellent reminded for anyone that puts money first. Sure, we all need money to pay the bills. Once you pay the bills, there’s no sense in being greedy because it’s only going to hurt your business.
“I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.” — Donald Trump
How bold are your goals? I know that Jesse from this very site, went through the process of quitting a steady gig to work for himself. I’m 24 years old, I rent out my condo and live at home. I have absolutely nothing to lose. This quote is a friendly reminder that I need to push harder.
“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.” — Vince Lombardi
Go hard or go home is more than just my favorite line when trying to get a friend to drink more beers and get more drunk. This is a reminder that I play to win. I play to get ahead. I don’t play to lose. Why would you play to lose?
I limited this post to five quotes because I wanted this to be a quick read. I hope that you save these quotes and look at them whenever you need that little boost. Time to close this window and get to work!
