Another 4 Great Quotes and How They Can Inspire Your Business.
From YMG – The Award-Winning Digital Marketing Agency in Chelmsford, Essex.
At YMG we realised that we often find ourselves looking for words to inspire us. They help to give us clarity, purpose and help us to focus on our goals So, we thought we’d share some more of our favourites with you.
Here are another 4 great quotes and how they can inspire your business.
“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” – Chris Grosser.
Wise words from the professional photographer. This quote can be applied to a business of any industry, size, location or experience.
Some people believe that every business that succeeds gets lucky. They assume that, for any business to grow into a brand or leader in their industry, they rely on lucky opportunities. And, in some situations, that is true. However, more times than not, the opportunities they took presented itself through hard work and determination.
If you don’t apply yourself to your work and don’t push for success, of course the opportunities won’t appear.

“I failed my way to success.” – Thomas Edison.
Some people live by the quote “Failure is not an option”. Well, sorry, Mr. Kranz, but in business, it is.
“But Louis,” I can hear you all crying out “failure in business is a bad thing!” Sorry to say, you’re wrong. Because failure is an important part of growth in the business world. And yes, maybe I’ll quote myself with that last line in a list one day.
When Thomas Edison had this lightbulb moment, he was really on to something. I do wonder if he’s most famous for this memorable line, or anything else? Nothing springs to mind…
With every failure comes an important lesson to be learned. With every lesson comes improvement. With improvement comes a step closer to success. So, it’s just perspective. You can choose to wallow in sadness at every failure, or you can use it to your advantage and learn.
“The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” – Vidal Sassoon.
Catchy, factual, punchy. Vidal Sassoon with one of the ultimate quotes about business. This quote is an inspiration for any business owner. It’s hard-hitting, but ultimately, it’s truthful.
Some business owners believe that they are owed success. That it should come their way with the minimum of effort. Sadly, this is not the case. From the mind of the legendary hairstylist/businessman, there’s perhaps no human being that could have said it better. Coming from an early life of extreme poverty, Sassoon didn’t win his CBE in a raffle. He worked hard, becoming an icon of the hairstylist industry in the process.
Success doesn’t exist without work. The harder you work, the more success you’re likely to see. So, if you’re looking for a quick fix of success, Sassoon suggests you find yourself a copy of the Oxford Dictionary.
“Ideas in secret die. They need light and air, or they starve to death.” – Seth Godin.
This quote, though morbid sounding, is one of the most inspirational out there. Godin, an American author and former business executive, brings us the harsh reality of speaking up.
Many business owners are scared to bring their ideas to see the light of day. Simply following the norm and hoping for a bite of the pie. And whilst this may yield some success, it ultimately does nothing more than follow a pattern. Meaning your business can never truly grow and succeed to the levels it deserves.
So, what can you do to change this?
Simple. Implement your ideas.
As a business owner, it’s your job to steer the business in a direction you think will be most successful. So, give your ideas the resources and time they need to be expanded on. If you’re not the business owner, pitch it to whoever is. Show them the passion and enthusiasm that you have for the idea. And, hopefully, they’ll take on board your idea. Who knows, you could be the reason your business goes global.
Bonus Quote: “Failure is an important part of growth in the business world.” – Louis J. Webber.
He’s got the hair, and he’s got the brains.
