We all measure small business success in different ways. One way to say a business is successful is when a business grows year after year. Another way is having people return to your company over and over again. Whatever way you measure it, there can be times when you feel frustrated and depressed about the process of the business. So, to motivate you to focus on the success of your business, here are some of my favorite small business success quotes from experts and my comments on each citation.
A sure fire way of helping you stay motivated is to look at these quotes each day. Try posting them on your computer desktop. Or, print them out and make a poster and hang it in your office. Then, each day, stand in front if it and read the quotes out loud. By doing this, it will allow you to keep your mind open to the possibility of success and keep you away from the negative thoughts that may creep on those rare occasions when things don’t go your way. Enjoy!
