15 Motivational Quotes To Inspire Entrepreneurs To Not Give Up

 

Becoming an entrepreneur and launching your own business can be a very exciting new adventure. With it comes the opportunity to express your ideas and vision and help people solve a problem by delivering a product or service you feel can be of  great benefit.

The feeling one gets when you know your idea is helping people can be a highly gratifying and rewarding experience. However, to get to this point will take a lot of determination and perseverance as seeing your vision come into fruition is not easy.

Starting a new company comes with many new obstacles that can feel quite daunting to the entrepreneur, which is why most give up within a year or two. One of the key factors of becoming successful has everything to do with psychology, your inner game, and mindset.

It is imperative that you spend a few hours each week working on your inner psychology so that you know how to motivate yourself when problems arise. And one of the best ways to do so is by reading motivational quotes and sayings on a regular basis.

These words have the power to shift your mindset when it may seem that all hope has been lost. In this spirit, we wanted to share some that we feel could be of benefit to you:

7. The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt. — Max Lerner

8. Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind. - Leonardo Da Vinci

9. One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity. - Albert Schweitzer

10. All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me….You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you. —Walt Disney

11. You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it's important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages. Michelle Obama

12. If you are being positive and strong in difficult times half of your problems will be solved automatically. - Anurag Prakash

13. Keep Going. Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end. ― Roy T. Bennett
