Inspiring motivational quotes for the drained digital entrepreneur

by | Apr 6, 2021

Motivational quotes for entrepreneurs can turn around a day that seems lost. As entrepreneurs and business owners know, there are plenty of days filled with self-doubt and exhaustion.

Find a quote below that resonates with you the most and then keep it where you’re sure to see it. Add it to your phone’s lock screen. Write it on a post-it note kept by your computer. You can even add it to your email signature.

“Success if not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

– Winston Churchill

You can always count on Churchill to provide inspiration to get through the dark periods of life. He’s credited with leading Britain through World War II so he knows a bit about success, failure, and courage.

“You only have to do a few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.”

– Warren Buffett

Do you feel like everything is going wrong lately? This might be the quote for you! Buffett reminds us that getting a few things right is more important than getting everything right. After all, failure often teaches more than it takes.

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved.”

– Helen Keller

If things with your business have been hard lately, instead of focusing on those difficulties focus on how your trials are strengthening you and your business. If everything was easy, you’d never grow.

“I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.”

– Oprah Winfrey

As you succeed, you might hear how lucky you are. Or if you’re playing the comparison game, you might be looking at other, more successful entrepreneurs and think, “They’re so lucky.” The truth? Luck has nothing to do with it. It takes a lot of preparation to know when an opportunity is presented and to be ready for that opportunity. 

“Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.”

– Babe Ruth

Have you started to rest on your laurels after a big win? Yesterday’s wins already happened and while you should celebrate, those wins are gone. Stay in the present to think about what wins you can make happen today. 

“Finding gratitude and appreciation is key to resilience. People who take the time to list things they are grateful for are happier and healthier.”

– Sheryl Sandberg

When you’re struggling with your business, it can help to take a moment to write down what you’re grateful for. In fact, regularly reflecting on what you appreciate can make the difficult moments seem a little less intense. You’ll know when something bad happens that there’s so much more that is good about your business. We have a whole blog about how impactful gratitude can be. 

“Just don’t give up what you’re trying to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

– Ella Fitzgerald

Chances are, you got into business because you’re passionate about something. It can be easy in the day-to-day hustle to forget about that. Bring yourself back to your mission when things get difficult. You’ll probably discover that your love for what you do hasn’t faded just because of the obstacles along the way. Get back to your purpose and honor your truth when you’re struggling.

“Don’t sweat the small things. Pay for services as if you are a $10M company, especially if it saves you time or speeds you up.”

– Darius Cheung

You might not have heard of Darius Cheung before but he is the CEO of, a very successful property and real estate company in Singapore. Cheung makes an excellent point about finding services that save you time. When you’re stressed, it can be hard to find a way out of the situation that you’re in. Sometimes you have to ask for help.
