Top 10 Quotes for Small Business Owners
There are many struggles and joys that come along with being a small business owner, the ups and downs of direct sales can be very exciting yet trying and go from one to the other many times in one day. It can be exhausting BUT, being your own boss and having some control over your own daily life is a wonderful feeling that just can’t compare with working for someone else. I’ve compiled my ten favorite quotes for keeping my eyes focused on the road ahead whenever I am feeling low. I have a few of these taped to my desk to remind me whenever I am feeling sorry for myself to keep moving forward.
1.) “If it’s to be, it is up to me” ~ William H. Johnson – no one but you can make this dream a reality.
2.) “If you want to be trusted, be honest” – nothing brings people back, often with their friends than knowing that you are fair and honest to work with. Nothing.
3.) “It always seems impossible until it is done.” ~ Nelson Mandela – great quote just for life in general but no matter the obstacle, tackle it one piece at a time until it is done.
4.) “A person who feels appreciated will always do more than is expected.” – if you have staff or assistants, making them feel appreciated is and should remain an important aspect in the success of your business.
5.) “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated.” – Maya Angelou, things will not go as planned on an almost daily basis at times, don’t lose sight of your goal.
6.) “I want to see what happens if I don’t give up.” – Just what are you capable of? You will never know if you don’t try!
7.) “Find a way, not an excuse. Excuses will always be there for you, opportunity won’t.” – Dig in and figure it out, whatever the challenge, it is yours to face.
8.) “Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds. You can plant flowers, or you can plant weeds.” – what you think, you become so pay careful attention of how you talk to yourself.
9.) “Set a goal so big that you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can.” – challenge yourself and others to work towards the small goals that will help you achieve your BIG goal!
10.) “Look in the mirror…….that’s your competition”, this is by far my favorite because it reminds me that I am the only one I have to worry about being better than, the person and business owner that I was yesterday.
Remember that this is your dream, your goal, your business and the only one that can make this happen is you!
