Every entrepreneur needs motivation and inspiration to overcome trials and tribulations. I’ve shared several quotes that have encourage me to stay focus, stop complaining, and never give up. I hope they encourage you to accomplish any goal in your personal or entrepreneurial journey.

jc01Mother Teresa – “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

jc01Martin Luther King – Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
