Unsere 33 liebsten Zitate für Entrepreneure und Selbstständige. 

Ein Unternehmen zu gründen ist wahrlich kein Ponyhof. Das Leben eines Entrepreneurs oder Selbstständigen fühlt sich manchmal an wie eine wilde Achterbahnfahrt der Emotionen. Auf Tiefschläge folgen kleine Erfolge – gefolgt von langen Durststrecken.

Auch in unseren Projekten geht es immer auf und ab. Wenn wir uns gerade mal wieder durch ein Tal durchkämpfen müssen, dann denken wir gerne an die Großen unserer Zunft. An die, die schon durch mehr Täler gegangen sind als wir 5 zusammen.

Diese Zitate haben wir über einen längeren Zeitraum zusammengetragen. Sie motivieren uns und geben uns Kraft, wenn wir den Kopf hängen lassen wollen:

1. „The best way to predict your future is to create it.“

– Peter Drucker

2. „Tue das, was Du tun würdest, wenn Du schon reich wärst.”

– Warren Buffet

3. “A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”

Richard Branson

4. “Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill

5. “I have not failed. I have just found 10.000 ways that won´t work.”

– Thomas Edison

6. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 

– Mark Twain

7. “Was nicht angefangen ist wird niemals fertig werden.” 

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

8. “Choose a job that you like, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” 

– Confucius

9. “My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.”

– Richard Branson

10. „A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.“

– Henry Ford

11. „Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.“

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

12. „The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.“

– Bruce Lee

13. „The secret to success is not in doing your own work, but in recognizing the right man to do it.“

– Andrew Carnegie

14. „If you are interested in balancing work and pleasure, stop trying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable.“

– Donald Trumpp

15. „I could either watch it happen or be a part of it.“

– Elon Musk

16. „I think that much of the advice given to young men about saving money, is wrong. I never saved a cent until I was forty years old. I invested in myself – in study, in mastering my tools, in preparation. Many a man who is putting a few dollars a week into the bank would do much better to put it in himself.“

– Henry Ford

17. „Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

Albert Schweitzer 

18. „If money is your hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.“

– Henry Ford

19. „I will hazard a prediction. When you are 80 years old and in a quiet moment of reflection narrating only for yourself the most personal version of your life story, the telling that will be the most compact and meaningful, will be the series of choices you have made. In the end, we are our choices. Build yourself a great story.“

– Jeff Bezos

20. “There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.”

– Christopher Morley 

21. „Why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me.“

– J.K. Rowling

22. „The question I am asking myself almost every day is ‚am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’….Unless I feel like I am working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I am not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time.“

– Mark Zuckerberg

23. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

– Mark Twain

24. „Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.“

– Steve Jobs  

25. „If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.“

– Robert H. Schuller

26. “Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

– Vince Lombardi“

27. “My biggest motivation? Just to keep challenging myself. I see life almost like one long University education that I never had – every day I´m learning something new.”

– Richard Branson

28. “As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, think big.”

– Donald Trump

29. „Stay hungry, stay foolish.“

– Steve Jobs

30. „The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you can’t learn anything from being perfect.”

– Adam Osborne

31. „A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”

– John C. Maxwell

32. “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.”

– Bill Gates

Und zum Schluss noch ein Zitat von Thomas, weil ich es so schön finde und es super zu unserer Vision des IdeaCamp passt.

33. „The right intend is critically important. With the right intend, you can fail over and over as long as you keep trying. Because once you succeed, the whole world succeeds. But if you have the wrong intend, even if you succeed at the first time, the whole world is off worse than before.“
