Inspirational Quotes: Work Towards Making yourself a Better Person

Inspirational Quotes: Work Towards Making yourself a Better Person

Great people are not created overnight. When we are all born, none of us can even speak. How does an infant become someone who can change the world?

Even when we feel like we are at the peak of an extraordinary accomplishment, a terrifying valley can be waiting for us ahead. What if you started a company in your garage, turned it into a $2 billion corporation, and then got fired from your own company? This is exactly what happened to Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple. In his 2005 commencement address at Stanford, he called his firing a “devastating” experience. Jobs felt like he had let down an entire generation of entrepreneurs. Unlike most of our failures, Jobs’ departure was widely reported. It was a very public event, and it was humiliating. He said, “I really didn’t know what to do for a few months.”

Sometimes, it takes a lot of suffering before a legendary leader emerges. Jobs wasn’t fired for no reason. He was far from perfect. The next period of his life was defined by growth and personal transformation. He said, “I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.” Jobs founded a new company, NeXT. Eventually, Apple purchased NeXT, and Jobs returned to Apple.

Inspirational Quotes: There is No Easy Way Out!

 

Inspirational Quotes: There is No Easy Way Out!

When you’re cornered in a tough spot, it’s easy to look for the fastest way out. Whether you are just starting or you are facing a new challenge, it’s natural to look for shortcuts. However, cutting corners will come back to haunt you. Even when it looks like the trick worked, unexpected consequences may surface – even many years later.

When Larry Ellison first started Oracle, he decided to call his product Oracle 2.0 despite the fact there was no Oracle 1.0. He knew that customers hesitate to buy the first version of new software because they are afraid it won’t function smoothly. The second version is usually more stable. His trick appeared to work: the CIA was his first customer. However, this deception established a pattern of behavior for Ellison. To boost sales, he encouraged his sales team to sell as many products at once – even if the customer wanted to pay later. This strategy made it appear that Oracle was successful, but it was actually short on cash. In 1990, they had to lay off 400 people because they couldn’t pay the bills. Oracle restated their earnings and faced class-action lawsuits. Ellison remarked that Oracle had made “an incredible business mistake.”

If you’re thinking about taking a shortcut, remember that shortcuts have an uncanny way of turning into the longest route possible.

Inspirational Quotes: Stop Worrying and Move Forward

Inspirational Quotes: Stop Worrying and Move Forward

The second we come up with a goal, we starting thinking of the unknown. We start to doubt ourselves and ask questions such as, “Will I fail? Can I accomplish my goals?” and so many more. The more you think of failure, the more you will not go ahead with your plans.

If you tend to doubt yourself, the first thing is to write what you want to accomplish on paper. List out the pros and cons. Then make a decision that will benefit you. Try not to think too hard; just go with it if you know it will work out for you. Trust me; you might make mistakes, but those mistakes will make you a better person.

If you are looking for an avenue to list and organize your goals, Peeklooks is a great place to start. Once you are registered, you can set your account to “Private” in settings.

Inspirational Quotes: Don’t Stop. Just Keep Going

Inspirational Quotes: Don’t Stop. Just Keep Going

We all have dreams and aspirations. When we think of what we want to accomplish, it seems so easy until we try to achieve it. The difficult part is achieving a goal. Some goals are easy to accomplish while others are difficult. The whole idea is when we set to achieve a goal, we should know not to give up. Not everything that we set to accomplish will work out for us. For example, let’s say you set out to own a cake business, and after several attempts, it doesn’t work out. If it doesn’t work out, try not to dwell on it, and move on to something different. By doing something different, you might discover your star. What does your star mean? “It means what you are destined to achieve in life.” We won’t always get what we want. Sometimes, we have to go through the tough times to achieve greatness. Remember, life isn’t always easy, but don’t forget to dream hard and work hard; you might just discover a gold mine along the way.

Inspirational Quotes to inspire you to Never Give Up

Inspirational Quotes to inspire you to Never Give Up

It’s really easy to tell someone to never give up. It’s a lot harder to take that advice when you are cornered in a bad situation. Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being “non-productive.” Edison made 1,000 different lightbulbs that didn’t work. A reporter asked him how it felt to fail one thousand times. He replied, “I didn’t fail a thousand times. The lightbulb was an invention with a thousand steps.” By reframing the situation, one can turn an apparent failure into a success. In a Nike commercial, Michael Jordan said, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” 1,000 defective lightbulbs. 9,000 missed shots. What’s your number? We all have one.

Inspirational Quotes – Love “Yourself”

Inspirational Quotes to inspire you to Love Yourself

How can you excel if you hate who you are? Hating yourself is the first step of failure. You can’t win if you don’t trust yourself. Believing in your own value is the only way you can convince others to value you. Mark Cuban, tech entrepreneur and billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has an inspirational quote for those just starting out, “What I’ve learned in these 11 years is you just got to stay focused and believe in yourself and trust your own ability and judgment.” Another example in trusting in yourself is Barbara Corcoran, a millionaire real estate investor and a shark on Shark Tank. She said, “The difference between the real winners is how long they take to feel sorry for themselves. My winners feel it… but they come back up and say ‘hit me again.’” Barbara was rejected from the Shark Tank show, but she decided not to take no for an answer and offered to compete for the role. Mark Burnett, the producer, agreed, and she won the spot.
