Starting a business online is no easy feat! Sometimes it’s easy to lose track of our goals and the big picture amid all the learning curves and pitfalls.

As an entrepreneur – online or not – you’re more than familiar with failure, despair and overwhelm.

You start an online shop only to see the sales flatlining on zero for months!

Maybe you came up with a sick concept for an app, spent hundreds of dollars developing it only to meet rejection after rejection from iTunes or Google Play and have no way of distribution.

Or you started a blog, worked hard on the branding and content but are completely stuck on the technical parts of blogging – nothing seems to work the way you want!

Ring a bell?

You don’t even need to be an entrepreneur honestly! We all hit the wall sometimes. We’re only human, after all! (I think this is a song?)

I’ve been meaning to do a post like this for quite some time, but always end up postponing it.

This time I’m doing this!

So, I took to Google and Pinterest. Collected a whole bunch of quotes from famous and not-to-so-famous people and put it all together in this post. Hopefully, it will inspire you too!

Write these for every Monday of your calendar planner.

Write it up on your wall inspiration board at home.

Pin your favourite quotes to your inspiration board on Pinterest. You can pin it directly from my quotes board too!

Whatever you choose, keep these quotes nearby for when you need it most!

There’s another quote I find particularly meaningful for humankind — this actually a verse from a poem I first heard in the movie G.I. Jane (one of the hallmark movies of my childhood).

D. H. Lawrence
