A Further 4 Great Quotes and How They Can Inspire Your Business.
This marks the 5th time we’ve created a list of 4 great quotes and how they can inspire your business. So, by now, we’ve got a pretty good idea of which quotes can help, enhance, and inspire you.
In fact, this list represents quotes number 18-21. “But Louis,” I can hear you saying “5 multiplied by 4 equals 20. How can this list have quotes 18, 19, 20 and 21 in it?” To that, I say that you’ll have to read our previous lists to find out why. Starting with 4 Great Quotes, then moving on to 4 More, Another 4, and Yet 4 More.
But, if the previous 17 quotes haven’t inspired you, perhaps the following 4 can.
“Your Time Is Limited, so Don’t Waste It Living Someone Else’s Life.” – Steve Jobs.
This isn’t the first time that co-founder of Apple Inc. has appeared on one of our inspirational quote lists. And we don’t think this will be the last, either.
This quote can be taken on board in a few different ways. Some people might say it inspires you to innovate and take your business in a brand-new direction, rather than following trends. You could say that by “living someone else’s life”, Jobs meant following the same paths that your competitors do, rather than creating your own.
Or perhaps Jobs was hoping to inspire people to create their own business. To follow their own dreams. Rather than settle by working for a business that doesn’t satisfy you or follow your own beliefs, why not be bold and ambitious? As Jobs said, “Your time is limited”.
Ultimately, we find this quote to be inspiring on many different levels. And that’s why it more than earns its spot on this list. And we believe one of the ideas it raises, about starting your own business, leads nicely into the next quote.
“People of Mediocre Ability Sometimes Achieve Outstanding Success Because They Don’t Know When to Quit. Most Men Succeed Because They Are Determined To.” – George Allen.
For the English readers out there, the name George Allen may not mean much to you. However, this quote comes from the late American football coach. Considering that this quote is from a 2x NFL Coach of the Year award-winner, we’d say he knew a thing or two about motivating people.
Sometimes you’ll see people that haven’t got anything special about them succeeding. They didn’t start with lots of money, or they don’t have the best product in the world. They may not even be particularly good at whatever it is they do. But what they do have is determination.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had an inspirational quote in this area. But, with this quote, Allen is brutally honest. And sometimes, hard work means just as much as talent or luck.
“If People Like You, They’ll Listen to You, But If They Trust You, They’ll Do Business with You.” – Zig Ziglar.
The second quote on this list to have come from someone previously featured, this time from Zig Ziglar. Considering he was an author, salesman, and motivational speaker, it’s no surprise he’s credited with one or two inspirational quotes.
We here at YMG always tell our clients that it’s about trust. The bottom line of any business is this; if you don’t have your customer’s trust, they will not buy from you. It doesn’t matter what your product is or how good your service is. This quote emphasises that.
This quote should inspire your business to work on building connections between yourself and your audience. Show them that you understand their wants and needs and that your business genuinely cares. Post content that your audience enjoy, interact with them and prove that you’re not just about the money. Do this, and your audience will begin to become clients and customers.
If you’re struggling to find the time to post relevant and interesting content to your audience, why not consider a social media management service?
“The Best Time to Plant a Tree Was 20 Years Ago. The Second-Best Time is Now.” – Chinese Proverb.
No, this inspirational quote isn’t from someone named Chinese Proverb. It is a Chinese proverb. Got it? Good.
Sometimes, when business is tough, it can be easy to think about throwing in the towel. If you’re in the mindset of “well, if it was going to happen to me, it would have by now” when thinking about success, then this quote is for you.
This proverb tells us that hindsight is powerful, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. As, if you’ve realised something should have been done in the past, the second-best option is to do it now. No matter if it’s an idea for a product, direction to take your business, or anything else.
