No intros today, these quotes are so cool I’ll jump right to them
1 Business is more exciting than any game. – Lord Beaverbrook
People ask me all the time:
“how come you haven’t been to the beach yet?”
“why do you always work?”
“how do you not get tired of working?”
“why don’t you go to the bar more often?”
…and you know, the regular stuff normal people enjoy doing.
Now I have the answer:
Business is more fun than anything, and it’s not just making all the cash, it’s serving people, it’s making a difference with your creation(s)… when I was running my offline company, I was making ten times more money than I am now, but was not even half as happy as selling my book makes me… and more specifically – the people my book makes an impact on daily.
2 To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult. – Johann Wolfgang Von Goeth
Have you noticed I’ve written all my articles simple and easy as if entrepreneurship was a game?
Because it is a game and I don’t want you to think but to act, I’ve always said: thinking is the opposite of acting… it’s really not that needed.
3 Make everything as simple as possible , but not simpler – Einstein
This is one of my personal favorites, I was wondering whether to publish it since I’ve talked about it already, but it’s just so cool I had to.
4 I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. – Donald Trump
Donald Trump is exactly my type of fella, not afraid to tell the truth, rich and not giving a fuck LOL. I think more people should be like him, a lot of people don’t like him for being too rude, yet I believe rudeness is inevitable when being frank with people.
5 Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable. – Coco Chanel
Talk about wisdom… that quote is so awesome I’ll repeat it: “success is often achieved by those who know that failure is inevitable.
I wouldn’t have understood it If i hadn’t failed miserably at 25… the year was 2011 and I’ll never forget it as it was the year I lost everything, and when I say everything I mean left with two bucks on me everything…
…had made millions, had made it big before 25 and then bam, it was all gone, 2012 was the most difficult year of my life, but as weird as it sounds, I’m glad it happened… I learned things some people would never know.
By the way, here’s the link to read my book if you want to read my story:
6 I have known not a few men who, after reaching the summits of business success, found themselves miserable on attaining retirement age. They were so exclusively engrossed in their day to day affairs that they had no time for friend making. – B.C. Forbes
I don’t think I need to even comment this one.
7 Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were. – David Rockefeller
To tell you the truth, I have to think this one through LOL… I think we live in times the competition is fierce and money is the only thing that separates you from the crowd.
As you can see, David Rockafeller thinks otherwise… or maybe he just said it a log time ago. It’s still a cool quote – training, discipline and hard work are vital.
8 Well, you know, I was a human being before I became a businessman. – George Soros
This one just cracks me up… it has a lot of meanings, pick whichever you think is best.
9 Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness. – James Thurber
10 You can fool all the people all the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough. – Joseph E. Levine
…or as I like to say: “marketing is pretty much finding the way to make the lying not lying”
