1. “Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.” Theodore Isaac Rubin

Have you completed a project then you look over it and say to yourself, “well done”? It doesn’t always produce happiness. Sometimes it just gives you a quiet peace within that no one can take away.

When you feel that peace, sit back, take a look, and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Then get up and do it again. You have found the key to success.

a quote by colin powell

2. “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” Colin Powell

In our world, today everyone is looking for fast starts and quick money. There is no such thing. Everything you do requires work, learning, preparation, and yes failure. Failure is what will give you the strength to move on when you face it, evaluate it, and keep going.

3. “It doesn’t matter whether you are pursuing success in business, sports, the arts, or life in general: The bridge between wishing and accomplishing is discipline.” Harvey Mackay

Wishing and dreaming alone will not produce success. Dreams are the beginning. Work is the force that creates success. And you will always build a new bridge with new knowledge. So focus and drive yourself to success with discipline.

socrates quote build the new

4. “The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.” Socrates

Oh, so true. To look back is to stumble but to look forward is to take a steady step in the right direction. Everyone wants new inventive ideas, not old worn out thoughts.

5. “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” Thomas Edison

I always say that to quit is not an option. In the times when starting a business as an entrepreneur that I wanted to run the other way, I always remind myself that I will never give up.Not giving up is the core of why I do what I do. Hang onto the strongest why and remind yourself often. Stand by it and move on.

quote by laura fuller reach in and grab your dream

6. “Life is a circle of dreams. Don’t chase your dream around the circle. Reach in, grab it and make it happen.” Laura Fuller

We all have dreams of what we will become or what we want to do with our lives. But those dreams will not happen if we do not reach deep inside of yourself, pull it out and make it happen.

You can make any dream happen with hard work, perseverance, and dedication.

7. “If you don’t find a way to make money in your sleep, you’ll work until you die.” Warren Buffet

We can all make money at a day to day job. But that money stops when we clock out and go home. It is vital to create a business that will continue to make a passive income when you sit down to relax and go to bed at night.

Real success is a passive income that continues to generate a way of life for you and your family.

8. “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney

Dreams are the beginning of a successful business. To push these dreams into reality, you have to work hard, discipline yourself, focus, and grow in the face of adversity.

9. “Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work.”  Albert Einstein

We often look back in history at the great ones like Albert Einstein and think it came easy for him to who developed the theory of relativity. He was a genius! With his dedication and hard work changed our world today. He helped pave the way for nuclear energy.

So you think he had it easy or that you can’t do what he did. Every tiny step you take to help the world see things in a different light will pave the way for future enlightenment. You too are a genius that will put 99% hard work into your business.

quote by laura fuller if you fall get back up

10. “If you fall, get back up, if you fall get back up. One day your legs will be strong enough to catch you before you fail. This is success.” Laura Fuller

Failure is a part of success. The more you fall and get back up, the stronger you will become. Then one day after patience and your persistence, you will have your dream. Don’t ever give up.

11. “You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.” Steve Jobs

Passion is a driving force that sets your dream on fire. Let that fire burn deep inside of you. Don’t let anyone douse your flame.

quote by ferris on marketing

12. “Marketing takes a day to learn and a lifetime to master.” Phil Kolte

The internet is changing with every passing minute of each day. We will never know all there is to know.  Always keep your mind open to learning and seek out knowledge.

13. “Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life’s too short to think small.” Tim Ferriss

Many naysayers in this world will take it upon themselves to tell you to give up. Don’t listen! Hang onto your dream and work hard to change the world.

quote by Laura go after what you want

14. “Go after what you want. Solve the problem. Never let anything stop you.” Laura Fuller

In the beginning, when you start your business, there will be many distractions. As you grow, you will learn to overcome these obstacles.

Always find a way to solve a problem for the world and never let anyone or anything change that.

15. “There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.” Ray Goforth

Others will look upon your work with jealousy and disdain. If you listen to them, you will quit. It is your business, and you created it for you.

quote tony hsieh, stop chasing money

Do NOT allow someone else to take control of your mind. Do NOT allow another to destroy what you have built.

16. “Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.” Tony Hsieh

If money is the reason you started a business, you will end up walking away when it doesn’t come fast enough if the passion for helping others and bringing what you have to the world is your way then you will succeed.

17. “There’s no luck in business. There’s only drive, determination, and more drive.” Sophie Kinsella

Oh, how right this quote is. When you look at someone like Jeff Bezos, you might think he was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. No, he had a dream and a passion. He took those two and pushed onward until he made an empire.

You too can do what Jeff did if you let your passion drive you to the next step and keep moving on. Don’t let anything stop you from achieving your goal.

quote by collin davies the road to success

18. “The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.” Colin R. Davis

Both success and failure can carry a fear that will stop you if you succumb to it. Each one will catapult you into a new dimension of your mind when you embrace the fear of success and failure and continue in your endeavor.

19.”All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.” Michael John Bobak

When you step outside of where you are comfortable, it produces fear of failure or fear of success. To have a successful business, you have to face this fear and work within the realm of discomfort. Only then will you learn and progress.

quote by laura, i will walk i will run i will soar

20. “With my face to the sun, My mind to the grind, I will walk, I will run, I will soar.” Laura Fuller

When you begin your business, whether it is online marketing or a brick and mortar, you have to face all obstacles with your face to the sun.

Be positive and know that you will succeed. With persistence, perseverance, and patience, you will be successful. It does take hard work and time to create a legacy, but you have what it takes.

  2. Hi, Laura.
    Thanks for  the Inspiration. Your article came at a most appropriate time in my life. Sometimes a small quote can motivate a person to move mountains, thanks for your effort for that push.
    I liked the quote-13 a lot which said ,”Life is too short to think small”. I will remember that.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

    • Gaurav, I am so happy I can help to motivate you. Positive quotes can help us move forward. I too like #13 

      “Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life’s too short to think small.” Tim Ferriss

      We can not listen to others we have to believe in ourselves. 

  3. These quotes are indeed very motivating, some of them I actually say them myself when it is a hard time or when it’s not going so well. Motivation is everything you need to keep on going. I’m pretty sure this will help a lot of people as well, so thanks a lot for sharing this article with us 

    • You are so welcome. I use quotes to keep a positive mind when I doubt myself. Quotes will help to renew our minds. 

  4. I wish I could appreciate you more for this awesome piece, an i must confess I found this article at the very right time. My best quote is definitely that of Thomas Edison “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” I believe that never say never attitude is a must for everyone who desire success in their respective businesses.

    Thanks again for taking time to put this together.


    • You are welcome, Jordon. Thomas tried, again and again, to become successful. Here is the full quote. I so agree with you. 

       “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” Thomas Edison

  5. I absolutely love quotes 1, 3, 6,7 and 9! I bookmarked this page so I can read them over and over. These are great and so motivating. People don’t want to work hard anymore. But hard work always pays off as you have beautifully displayed in this post. Thank you so so much for sharing this as even the hardest of workers need a pep talk sometimes. 

    • Thank you for your comment. I like all of these quotes. It is so hard to pick just one or more. One of them that you chose is one of mine. 

      “Life is a circle of dreams. Don’t chase your dream around the circle. Reach in, grab it and make it happen.” Laura Fuller

      So often in life, we chase our dreams instead of making them happen. Yes, it does take work and commitment. 

  6. I agree so much with number 2. There are no secrets, the only thing that matters is trying, failing, learning from those failures and then tackling it again with a different approach. I think 99.99% of successful became successful with this method.

    Also thanks for mentioning Warren Buffett. He is hands down my favorite billionaire and the quote from him is my favorite. Cheers for the motivation, have a great day.

    • “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” Colin Powell

      Colin Powell has many inspiring quotes. It is so helpful to speak quotes of great people to push each one of us forward.
