25 Motivational Quotes for Entrepreneurs

I'm sure y'all know by now that I love a good motivational quote. And if you're an entrepreneur, I'm sure you need some encouragement from time to time (I know I do). Here are 25 quotes that inspire and encourage me, and I hope they do the same for you:

  1. "You only have to believe that you can succeed, that you can be whatever your heart desires, be willing to work for it, and you can have it." - Oprah Winfrey
  2. "You must remain focused on your journey to greatness." - Les Brown
  3. "No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere." - Brad Gast
  4. "If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place." - Nora Roberts
  5. "Stop waiting for others to tell you what you can do. Start putting faith into your own strengths and talents. Instead of questioning whether you can reach your goals, move forward with conviction and confidence." - Jane Powell
  6. "...You have to believe in yourself when no one else does-- that makes you a winner right there." - Venus Williams
  7. "It is important to live each day with a positive perspective. It is not wise to pretend problems do not exist, but it is wise to look beyond the problem to the possibilities that are in it. When Goliath came against the Israelites, the soldiers all thought, 'He's so big, we can never kill him' But David looked at the same giant and thought, 'He is so big, I can't miss him.'" - Dale Turner
  8. "Four steps to achievement: plan purposefully, prepare prayerfully, proceed positively, pursue persistently." - William A. Ward

  10. "...Dream big, reach further, climb higher." - Angela Burt-Murray
  11. "If you try to guard yourself against every unlikely danger, you'll never stretch beyond your comfort zone. Don't let the 'what-ifs' run your life. Follow your dreams and have at it." - Diane Conway
  12. "Focus more on your desire than on your doubt, and the dream will take care of itself. You may be surprised at how easily this happens. Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so." - Marcia Wieder
  13. "...Do not give up. Even when others do not understand. Even when you feel alone with your dreams. Even when the vision gets a little blurred...Your steps are ordered, and you are destined for greatness. You are stronger than your mind can conceive, everything you need lies within..." - LaKesha Womack
  14. "It's important to have dreams, goals and plans in life, but it doesn't mean anything unless there's ACTION behind it! Make sure you're actually doing things that will help you get where you want to be." - Me
