As a solopreneur, you often have so much to do in so little time, and with such a hectic schedule it’s easy to run out of inspiration which can affect your work quality and efficiency.
So if you are looking for some motivation, take a read of these 10 super inspirational quotes for solopreneurs which will help you to get all fired up and get back to your work with new energy.
1. “Successful People Aren’t Always Exceptionally Talented. Sometimes They’re Just Exceptionally Tough.”
Well, I don’t exactly know whose quote is this but I read it somewhere and it just stuck in my mind because it is so true.
The world only sees the glory but many masters like Michelangelo, Micheal Jackson, and Bruce Lee have admitted that natural talent can only give you a little run but if you really want to win the race, you have to be tough enough to do the hard work.
So stay solid and focused, sooner or later you will catch the success.
2. “Sometimes, Thinking Too Much Can Destroy Your Moment.” –Tom Watson
Well said by Tom Watson. It is indeed true that overthinking can destroy a lot of things, whether it’s your work life or personal life.
Thinking too much can slow your speed and affect your productivity. So it’s better to keep overthinking at bay when you are willing to accomplish some tasks in time.
3. “If You Don’t Pay Appropriate Attention to What Has Your Attention, It Will Take More Of Your Attention Than It Deserves”–David Allen
Read again! And repeat it in your head so that next time when you get down to a task you will remember not to distract.
We all get distracted sometimes but when you are a solopreneur and have 99 things on your to-do list, these distractions can affect your whole schedule.
So it is better to focus on one task at a time to get it done or else it will take more of your attention and time than it deserves.
4. “Friendly Reminder, Doing Your Best Does Not Mean Working Yourself to the Point of a Mental Breakdown”
As solopreneurs, we often overload ourselves with tasks and then end up feeling physically and mentally drained out.
This isn’t the right way to achieve your maximum productivity if anything, overworking can lower your actual productivity and affect your health too.
So take a break when needed, recharge yourself, and then get back to work with full force.
5. “Be Strong Enough to Stand Alone, Smart Enough To Know When You Need Help, and Brave Enough To Ask For It.”
Most solopreneurs have this “I can do it all by myself” syndrome and they find it quite difficult to ask anyone for help.
But for the sake of your sanity, you have to understand the fact that we all need help at some or the other point of time and asking for it doesn’t mean you are not sufficient or good enough.
Knowing where you need help in your business activities and asking the right person for help can lower your workload and save your time to focus on other tasks.
6. “Many Who Are Self-taught Far Excels the Doctors, Masters, and Bachelors of the Most Renowned Universities.” – Ludwig Von Mises.
If you’re not a high school topper, that’s okay. If you chose your passion over going to college that is fine too.
But be a learner and keep honing your skills because self-learning is said to be the best way of learning even by someone like Ludwig Von who was a doctorate and University professor.
7. “The Reason Why We Struggle with Insecurity is Because We Compare Our Behind the Scenes with Everyone Else’s Highlight Reel.” – Stephen Furtick
Never compare what you got from others because everyone has their own different struggles and stories which we don’t know.
But in this age of social media, it is quite difficult when you see other blingy businesses on reels and you’re still struggling.
But you don’t know their behind the scenes, you’re only looking at the surface.
There could be a whole team of professionals working for even one Instagram post and you are doing it all alone, so stop comparing and compete with yourself only.
8. “The Beginning is the Most Important Part of the Work.”– Plato
It is so true. The hardest and most essential part of any task is to get started especially if you are new to it.
People would say plan and think and do all that stuff before getting started but I would say just do it!
Just dive head straight in it and you probably won’t get the best results at first but at least you will start something and that is more important.
For example, if you want to write a 2000-word long blog and you know you’re not a professional content writer.
So instead of dwelling upon how you should write, just start writing as I said you won’t get the best results at first but you will have your first draft and you can edit it later.
9. “It’s Not About Perfection, It’s About Effort and When You Bring that Effort Every Single Day, That’s Where Transformation Happens. That’s How Change Occurs.”
Practicing healthy perfection is good but too much perfection can also lower your productivity.
So don’t bother to make it perfect, instead focus on putting in constant efforts. Because every small effort, even if it’s not perfect, will lead you one step closer to your goal.
10. “You Often Feel Tired Not Because You’ve Done Too Much, But Because You’ve Done Too Little of What Sparks a Light in You.”
Going late to your bed, feeling all tired, and still when you look back at your day, you realize that you still haven’t completed even half of the tasks that you planned to do.
If that’s the case that means you must be spending much of your time doing those mundane tasks that don’t ignite you to do more instead make you feel all lazy and sleepy.
The best way to make the most of your day is to do what you love!
But then what about those emails, that long article that you have to finish, or all those social media stuff?
Hopefully, these inspirational quotes will be helpful for all solopreneurs out there who read this.
