Thousands of budding entrepreneurs throughout the UK aspire to be successful.
There’s a fine line between success and failure, though, and prospering in the world of business is difficult.
An elite band of visionaries, however, lead by example and make it to become hugely successful, like Steve Jobs, for example.
Here’s a selection of quotes from influential figures such as Jobs that may prove inspirational…
“Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”- Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder, designer and inventor.
“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure” – Bill Gates, Microsoft chairman.
“We don’t build services to make money; we make money to build better services” – Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook co-founder.
“We watch our competitors, learn from them, see the things that they were doing for customers and copy those things as much as we can” – Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com co-founder.
“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently” – Henry Ford, Ford Motor Company co-founder.
“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts” – Richard Branson, Virgin Group chairman.
“What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate” – Donald Trump, American business magnate.
“Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people” – John D Rockerfeller, American businessman.
