Entrepreneurship Quotes

Carlos' Opinion -
Entreprenurship Quotes

Getting inspired in the moments of feeling down it is important.

Words are words, and sometimes words can be taken by the air, as some said. 

But usually words are a powerful weapon to be used, that can either motivate or unmotivate someone. 

That is why we should be careful sometimes with the words that we use.

Getting motivated in the moments that we feel down is not neccesary something that we always have to go to.

It is fine to feel sad, angry, unmotivated, and even depressed.

In my opinion, being over optimistic and overly enjoyful and happy might bring also negative consequences.

I think that running on a perfect way, migh leave someone out of having the experience of how to recover from tough times.

If someone doesn’t feel how it actually feels to be left alone, to be let down, to thrive under adversity, then how the person will actually appreciate when he is on the other side where things are finally running as wished.

When we read succesful quotes from Entrepreneurs that are famous, we only see the tip of the iceberg, and we might also think, I want to be like X or Z, but the question is, do you really want to go through to reach their point?

What deep stories are not being told around from entrepreneurs, what fights they have to win, what paths they created and more important how they solved their problems and were able to push themselves to reach their goal.

Entrepreurship quotes from famous people will give us that tiny push, but the energy for all of us who are willing to become real entrepreneurs come from the inside. 

This is a reminder for myself, and hopefully for you too, remember that when the wind blows you down, let the spark inside you, light you up. 


Entrepreneurship quotes to help you motivate yourself and achieve your goals.

As we know that it is not an easy path, in this article we will give you the best phrases of entrepreneurship so that you can not only reflect on them, but also serve to fuel your desire to achieve your goals.

Maybe some of the names seem familiar to you, and knowing how they think will be useful for you to follow in their footsteps.

Steve Jobs

We all know Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple.

Apart from his name, it is not so difficult to know his story, since there are many projects that have been designed to portray it.

Without thinking about it, perhaps, he gave us one of the best phrases of entrepreneurship that, although it is a little long, it seems not to get old.

And the fact is that he himself did not think that what he would say in 2005, during a graduation ceremony at Stanford, would be gasoline for more people than those who were in that auditorium.

What he said at the time was:

Your time is limited, so don't waste it trying to live someone else's life. It's not right to get caught up in dogma, which means that we live according to the result of other people's thoughts. One should not let the noise of other people's opinions drown out our inner voice. And, most importantly: one must have the courage to follow one's heart and intuition. Somehow these two know what we really want to be. Everything else will become secondary.

Walt Disney

Everyone knows about the company he helped build, but very few know about him.

This co-founder of Disney Productions is undoubtedly an example of a successful entrepreneur who is worth knowing and, on some occasions, paying attention to his words.

It was in the book How To Be Like Walt: Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life that a quote was taken from that caught the attention of many:

"All your dreams have a chance to come true if you have the courage to pursue them."

And, although it is not as long as the previous one, it tells us a reality of the entrepreneur.

And it is that the only determinant to reach the goal is to have the courage to fight for it.

Richard Branson

The name alone may not ring a bell, but if we tell you that this is the chairman of Virgin Group, it may come to mind.

This is a world-famous holding company based in the United Kingdom.

He was in charge of giving us another of the famous entrepreneurship quotes that every dreamer should read, and it tells us the following:

"What is my biggest motivation? To keep challenging myself. For me, life is a long college education, which I never had, and every day is an opportunity to learn something new."

This underscores that we often don’t need a degree to succeed in our dreams. In fact, most entrepreneurs had zero college or no college at all, and look at them today.

Oprah Winfrey

Every human being on the face of the earth has heard at least once about Oprah Winfrey, and while some may not recognize the impact that a single woman has had on society, there are others who are devoted to this modern media guru.

We are sure that on more than one occasion she has been able to say something, in general terms or to a specific person, that has served to motivate the masses.

However, in this case we will refer to a specific phrase that may be the fuel you need right now:

"Every time you define what you want to believe in, you are the first to hear it. It's a message to yourself and others that what you're thinking about is possible. Don't put a barrier on yourself."

Undoubtedly worthy of admiration and understanding.

Bill Gates

This is another of the biggest personalities of our time, and there is no one who has not interacted with his entrepreneurship.

This is Bill Gates, the chairman of Microsoft who, by 2020, was the third richest person in the world.

One of the many things we can rescue from him is the following:

"It's fine to celebrate success, but it's much more important to pay attention to the lessons that failure teaches us."

This is very important when you consider that the entrepreneur’s path is not at all mapped out.

Many of the figures, as well as Bill Gates and even that entrepreneur who has his store in your neighborhood, could tell you about the 10 times he failed before getting it right.

But we assure you that each one of those times he learned something that helped him to be now having the success he receives.

Larry Page

Perhaps very few know the name behind the company, but Larry Page is the co-founder of Google.

That search engine that we use every day and that at some point was just someone’s idea. In 2001 he published an article in BusinessWeek that helped us stand out:

"You don't need to have a 100-person company to develop the idea you have in mind."

A bitter truth, since many of the world’s most famous entrepreneurs started out on their own before they were even able to earn a salary for themselves.

Do you feel motivated?

Now that you know the most famous entrepreneurship quotes, we hope you have filled up that tank of fuel to get you going with whatever your project is.

Success is at the same distance for everyone, it is our actions that help us shorten that path.
