ENTREPRENEUR QUOTES: 70 Inspiring Entrepreneur Quotes To Transform Your Day, Your Drive And Your Mindset

You are an entrepreneur. And you work hard to transform your great ideas into something real, solid and that can help people around the world. Hard work pays off. But maintaining a steady pace of hard work is only possible due to your strong motivation. Motivation is what drives you. Is what keeps pushing you forward.

You need motivation because it’s the “juice” that makes you unstoppable. A strong warrior.
But as every entrepreneur, sometimes that “juice” goes away and it abandons you, leaving you all alone with your thoughts. And the bad ones.

And then you start thinking…
“Will I fail?”
“Can I really do this?”
“Am I going in the right direction?”

Failure. Fear. Doubt.
Enough of all that.

Let’s end all those poisonous thoughts with a little bit of help. Help from other entrepreneurs. These quotes were spoken by people who were not born to give up, but instead, were born to achieve Greatness.
