The dream of owning your own business is one most people can relate to. Being your own boss and dictating your own hours are just scratching the surface of potential opportunities your business can bring you. If you are at the beginning of creating your start up, or are struggling to keep the momentum going, the founders of Golo Legal understand. It’s not easy being an entrepreneur, and sometimes you just need a little motivation. Our founders, Ben Randolph and Chris Smith, have compiled 5 motivational quotes by entrepreneurs that they live by and how they use them.
1. “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game’s winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that’s why I succeed.” Michael Jordan, Former NBA Player and Hall of Famer
2. “Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win.” – Vince Lombardi, Former American Football Player and Coach
3. “The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are a few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” – Nolan Bushnell, Engineer and Entrepreneur
If you look closely, all of these quotes have something in common. To work HARD, to keep PERSEVERING, to NEVER GIVE UP, and no matter how many times you FAIL, to always GET BACK UP and keep doing what you’re doing. The entrepreneurs of today wouldn’t be entrepreneurs if they quit. Apple would not be here if Steve Jobs quit because he couldn’t get it right the first time. Michael Jordan would not have reached the level of NBA status and fame he has now if he quit after he missed his first shot. These quotes are the epitome of what it takes to become an entrepreneur. These quotes motivate us when sometimes things seem a bit too hard or a bit too far out of reach. Our advice? Take a step back. Re-group. Take a moment to yourself. Read these quotes and get your head in the game for another day. – Ben Randolph and Chris Smith
