Part of being successful is knowing to stick through the rough times, and today we are going to share inspiring quotes that will help you get that inspiration and positive entrepreneurship spirit back up.
37 Signals: “Instead of freaking out about these constraints, embrace them. Let them guide you. Constraints drive innovation and force focus. Instead of trying to remove them, use them to your advantage.” This quote means exactly what we mentioned before. When obstacles start to appear, be ready to accept and embrace them. Remember that if it were easy, everyone would be doing it and instead of putting more obstacles, try to think of a different solution to your problem. If you are feeling overwhelmed take the day off, try to relax and wake up the next morning with a good attitude and ready to use the obstacle to your advantage!
Roy Ash: “An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he’ll quickly learn how to chew it.” This quote may help you if you’re ever feeling alone and confused. Remember that there are millions of other entrepreneurs out in the world trying to hustle their way out to success, and trusting in your abilities and capacity to quickly learn new skills is admirable. Sometimes, you must accept the challenge and later learn how to actually get it done in order to move quickly, and that is ok.
Drew Houston: “Don’t worry about failure; you only have to be right once.” This quote is inspiring because it gives you space for mistakes and failures. If you focus on never doing anything wrong, then life may get stressful and hard. If, on the other hand, you focus on working hard until you have 1 great opportunity, 1 great business and 1 shot, then it gives you space for time, growing and doing trial and error. You dont have to be right all the time.
