Life of an entrepreneur that is good at their hustle can get tough. Let us keep you inspired with these quotes to inspire your inner hustler to keep going.
Those who have yet to encompass the trials and tribulations of being an entrepreneur have no idea how hard it is to stay motivated! There isn’t a boss harping on you to go to work. There isn’t a co-worker depending on you to take over the shift. There is just you and only you and you depend on no-one but you. When things get tough, it’s hard to keep yourself motivated!
As someone who runs three small LLC’s herself, I find it tough to get myself to actually get to work. The thing is, once I start, I can’t finish! So it’s imperative to have a utility belt of tools that help me get started in the first place. I like to remind myself of quotes of those who continuously inspire me to get into my line of work in the first place.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
Martin Luther King Jr. continues to inspire revolutionaries, politicians, and yes, entrepreneurs like yourself and I. Sure, most of us want to cultivate a huge and successful business doing what we love but for some of us, that dream just won’t come true. To come to terms with such and recognize the greatness in your work- no matter how small, will relieve stress and help you appreciate the work that you are accomplishing.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” - Paulo Coelho
For many of us, we face something called Imposter Syndrome. Imposter syndrome can leave us thinking that we are not indeed as capable or competent as others perceive you to be. This can leave us fearing our own failure and sometimes, expecting our own failure. I know I am the only person who gets in my own way of achieving my own dreams. Don’t let you be your own harsh opponent.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” - Nelson Mandela
If Nelson Mandela’s life story isn’t something that tells you that nothing is impossible, I don’t know what will. This revolutionary spent decades in Prison for fighting for equality for his people. This man wasn’t legally allowed to vote until he was voting for himself in the presidential election of his own country! If that doesn’t inspire you to your core, then you need to focus on some serious self care my friend!
“March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move forward to perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life’s path.” Khalil Gibran
Khalil Gibran is the infamous lebanese writer who wrote one of the most inspiring books that I’ve read titled, The Prophet. He speaks a lot about not fearing the obstacles that life lays in our path and facing them with grace and deep understanding of why they are there. Every obstacle beholds a life lesson. So take it in, embrace it, and learn from it. Next time, it’ll be less of a lesson and more of a dance.
“Don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” -Ella Fitzgerald
Ella Fitzgerald is a woman who started her career by singing in the streets of Harlem and made it into movie pictures, on large audience stages and on countless recordings that are still played on popular outlets today. As entrepreneurs, we have to continuously remind ourselves why we are working so hard towards our dreams. Remember, love conquers all and striving towards making what you love a career is something you could never go wrong with.
Motivate Yourself to Keep Moving and Grinding to Make Your Hustlin’ Dreams Come into Fruition
The unfortunate truth is that only YOU can make your dream come into fruition. Fortunately, with the right motivation, the right tools in your utility belt and a tight knit support network, you can make almost anything happen.
