WOW! How powerful is this quote....

43 replies
"Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t."

Man, that just blew me away. It just made me feel so grateful of my chosen path and of the possibilities that await for me.... What a motivational boost!

I just wanted to share that with you all. I hope some of you gain inspiration and motivation from this quote.

      I read it in the newspaper this morning.

      I'm still stuck with it. I think it pretty much sums up most of us Warriors drive.

      Paul, I just did some digging and here's what I stumbled upon: "A student in Warren G. Tracy’s class, entrepreneur"

      It looks like the author is unknown...

    The most powerful quotes I think are usually the ones that slap you in the face with a truth that's so obvious yet at the same time makes you wonder why you never thought of it before...this quote definitely does that...thanks, it's a great reminder of what drives most (if not all) people on the wf

    The trick of marketing is to know what to do, when to do it, where to do it, how to do it.

      I totally agree.
      The most powerful quotes seem to be those that take some fairly obvious statement and -wham - you suddenly read it and think "Why didn't I see think of that"

    Yeah, that's pretty deep...it takes an entrepreneur to try things others won't, to achieve things others only dream of. It makes alot of sense. Keep at it, you go-getters!

      No.. don't be silly. Ask away... and that's for the whole forum. We're all here to help each other.

      Well, IM is very broad, however there are definitely elements to it that require an entrepreneurial drive. Especially if you intend on making it a full-time job.

    It's a spin on this quote:

    "I will do today what you won't, so I can do tomorrow what you can't".
