“Nobody forces you to work at Walmart. Start your own business. Sell something to Walmart.”

Kevin O’Leary, businessman extraordinaire and star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” homes in on what the essence of the entrepreneur is. It’s about starting your own business because you believe there’s a huge demand for its product or service in the marketplace—not about becoming another nine-to-five employee who works for his boss.

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

Unsurprisingly, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs makes this list with a quote that hits on one of the most necessary ingredients of successful entrepreneurs: sheer determination. It’s that fighting spirit to continue persevering that makes all the difference in the world.

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”

Attributed to Babe Ruth, the legendary baseball player, this line speaks to the never-say-die attitude that all entrepreneurs must have to taste success and retain it indefinitely. Ruth knew about not giving up personally: He survived growing up in an orphanage and a reform school to become who some say is the greatest baseball player of all time.

Take These Quotes to Heart

Entrepreneurs would do well to refer to these inspiring quotes regularly as a beacon of wisdom to help guide them through their journey of innovation and determination. Since being an entrepreneur can be tough, hearing these words of inspiration from those who’ve already tasted success is invaluable.
