Did you know they’re thinking of teaching entrepreneurship at Universities? I was surprised when I heard. I guess a part of me thinks you’re born with it and only some entrepreneurial traits can be taught. What do you think?
One thing I’m certain of however is that, entrepreneur or not, running your own business takes passion, dogged determination and drive. And for that, you need a little inspiration a lot of the time! And so this Monday here are 9 fantastic quotes from our favourite entrepreneurs to help kick start your week!
Which one speaks most to you? Let us know in the comments.
The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.
We’ve got to make progress every week. We can’t wait for a league game to make it important. Every week is important.
And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, ‘This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!’ And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, ‘No. This is what’s important.’
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life…Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
The best entrepreneurs I’ve ever met are all good communicators. It’s perhaps one of the very few unifying factors.
Never underestimate the potential that lies within each and every young person you come into contact with, and, possibly more importantly, never underestimate the difference that your words of encouragement may have in their lives.
Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me.
Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes’, otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.
Never despise small beginnings, and don’t belittle your own accomplishments. Remember them and use them as inspiration as you go on to the next thing. When you venture outside your comfort zone, wherever the starting point may be, it’s kind of a big deal.
