Being an entrepreneur, in my opinion is the greatest career in the world. But, even entrepreneurs, like Steve Jobs or Jim Rohn, hit bumps in the road and were challenged more than most people. So, here are some famous entrepreneur quotes for success and motivation for you…



10 Famous Entrepreneur Quotes For Success:

1. “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Andre Gide

I've loved this quote ever since I heard it the first time. If you want to become an entrepreneur and accomplish things you've never done before, you have to get out of your comfort zone and just go take action to make your vision a reality. Successful entrepreneurs are the one that are willing to do what others are not willing to do.

2. “Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes playing a poor hand well.”

– Jack London

This is another one of my favorite entrepreneur quotes for success because of the great analogy being used. If you always wait for the best hand to make a move, or in other words the right timing, you will never win. It's about taking what you have and out-playing the others. Stop thinking about what you don't have to work with and determine what you do have to work with.

3. “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

Steve Jobs

What famous quotes post would be complete without one of the great Steve Jobs quotes? This one says that to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to be willing to work around bumps in the road and persevere without giving up easily. Many entrepreneurs fail because of the lack of mental toughness, perseverance, and motivation to always find a way.

4. “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn is one of the most influential personal development experts and success strategists in our lifetime. Jim Rohn quotes tend to really make people think and have breakthroughs in peoples' lives.

This one really impacted me the first time I heard it because it talks about how willing you have to be to just take action on your ideas and teach yourself what does and make you successful. No school can ever do that for you.

5. “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

Albert Einstein

This is one of the entrepreneurship quotes that every entrepreneur should live by. If you focus just on money or success and will take people down just to get it, you will most likely fail in today's age. Instead, try to provide as much value as you can to people and they will love you for it.

This will create a loyal following for your business and if what your selling provides more value to people than they pay for, you will always be successful.

6. “Action is the foundational key to all success.”

Pablo Picasso

How can  you expect to be a successful entrepreneur and make accomplish your goals if you don't just go out and take action? The best ideas in the world are just ideas until action is taken to make them a reality. Taking massive action is essential to your success and will be the difference maker in the end.

7. “A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.”

Max Lucado

I love this quote. It basically means that if you want to lead your team or followers, you must first turn your back on the outside opinions of others that will always criticize you without reason. Develop a thick skin and focus only on the ones that locked arms with you.

8. “Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people.”

John D. Rockefeller

If you can show average people how to accomplish great things, you will be loved by thousands. It comes down to simplicity. If you can take advanced concepts or technical aspects of success, and simplify them for people to be able to apply to their lives, nothing can stop you from being extremely successful.

9. “Leadership is the ability to translate vision into reality.”

Warren Bennis

As an entrepreneur, you can't accomplish anything without having the vision of it first. Visualize what the final product would be or what your dream would look like if you really did turn it into a reality. Then, you must take massive, consistent action to make it a reality.

10. “As we look into the next century, leaders will those who empower others.”

– Bill Gates

Empowering people is the ultimate form of leadership. Giving people the ability to realize how much potential they really have to accomplish great things is like nothing else. Just be an entrepreneur that provides value to people in some way and empowers people to make positive change in their lives.
