If you’ve been paying attention to social media or the news over the past several years, you’ve probably seen many stories about how popular it is to become an entrepreneur right now. That’s for good reason!
Many people are turning to entrepreneurship in order to start their own business — either full time or part time — and make some money on their own terms. It can be a highly appealing thought for many people. They can do the work they want to do, when they want to do it, without having other people telling them what to do all day long.
Here are five quotes describing why entrepreneurship is all the rage right now.
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”- Peter Drucker
Entrepreneurs spend every day working to create the future they want.
“Every time you state what you want or believe, you’re the first to hear it. It’s a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don’t put a ceiling on yourself.”- Oprah Winfrey
Sometimes the best way to do something is to say it out loud or write it down — it can help you see your goals and dreams to put them into action.
“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.”- Bill Gates
Entrepreneurs often experience failure, but they learn from it and become better because of it.
“To win without risk is to triumph without glory.”- Corneille
Naturally when you do something you’ve never done before, like become an entrepreneur, it’s risky — but that risk can lead you to great accomplishments down the road.
“There is only one success — to be able to spend your life in your own way.”- Christopher Morley
This last quote is the reason many become entrepreneurs and side hustlers in the first place: to live your life the way you want.
