No Nonsense Quotes to Inspire Your Business Success!

inspirational wedding business quotes
written by


I love inspiring quotes and I often look through my library of books for words of wisdom from those I admire when I am faced with challenges.  There are some that I just love for what they say about life and love, but today I wanted to share with you some of the ones that speak to me when I am thinking about my business and the journey I am on in my career.  Because I work primarily on my own there are times when I need to remind myself of what is important to me and here are just a handful of quotes which do that for me.

“I think you have to take charge of your life and understand that you’re either going to live somebody else’s dream, or live your own dream.” Wilma Mankiller, First Woman Chief, Cherokee Nation

“The only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary.” Vidal Sassoon, Hairdresser

“Take a punt in life, that’s what I believe.  If you just sit there the days run away.  If you make a few mistakes, who cares?  You can shut yourself in your house and never come out again, or you can hang in there and keep on trying.  You decide which.” Lady Rupert Clarke

“Instead of thinking about where you are, think about where you want to be.  It takes twenty years of hard work to become an overnight success.” Diane Rankin, Author

Have you picked up a theme in these quotes?  There is not a ‘watch the rainbow and it will reveal your dreams’ sentence amongst them.  Like I said, those types of quotes have a place.  But when I think about my work, my business and the goals I have for my financial and business success I need realistic speak and from people who know that hard works brings rewards.  I know life probably looks glamorous for the likes of Beyonce and Madonna, but don’t be fooled into thinking that these women don’t work hard for what they have and it has not come to them overnight either.  There are few free rides in business.
When you are next tempted to wonder where the easy way out is, consider how you feel when you have completed a physically demanding task.  For me, it’s mowing on a hot day.  That is hard work (and I have a lot of land to mow) but when I sit back at the end of the job, with a cool drink and look out over what I have achieved, I feel as powerful as I ever do.  It is actually why I still do it from time to time.  Cheers to hard work!
