As a general rule, New York franchise owners tend to be positive individuals with a lot of drive. But even the best entrepreneurs can feel worn out from time to time. And when they do, it pays to have an example they can look to for motivation and inspiration. Some people find it helpful to get a quote from a successful entrepreneur or great thinker and post it somewhere where they will see it every day.
While there are many great quotes to choose from, we’d thought we’d share a few are our favorites:
When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen. – Harley Davidson
When you think of Harley Davidson, you probably just think of the motorcycle. But before the name became synonymous with raw power and the freedom of the open road, it belonged to a man with a vision.
Are you just contemplating franchise ownership for the first time and taking those first few uncertain steps? Then this quote might help inspire you to take control of your own destiny and do what it takes to make your own vision a reality.
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. – Suzy Kassem
If you think that you are going to accomplish anything significant without some failure, then you are in for a disappointment. But far worse than failure is never making the attempt at all.
If you have a dream to own your own franchise or be your own boss, then don’t let doubt kill that dream.
You have to remember something: everybody pities the weak; jealousy you have to earn. – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Did you know that some people are held back from becoming New York franchise owners because they are actually afraid of what others might think if they become successful? It sounds crazy, but it’s true.
The sad fact is that if you are working in the corporate world or office environment and start your own business – and (gasp!) become successful about it, chances are there are people from your workplace who will talk behind your back and even act hostile toward you.
In these scenarios, you need to remember that this is their problem – not yours. Don’t let the jealousy of others keep you from reaching your full potential.
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. – Walt Disney
Before you make a major decision like buying a New York franchise, it is important that you do your research. But eventually, the research must end and you must take action.
Working with a qualified franchise consultant can help you get through the research phase in a timely manner – so that when the time comes to make a decision, you’re ready to make it.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again. – Richard Branson
The founder of the Virgin Empire has it right. As a franchisee, there will be times when you make errors. The key is to learn from them so that they do not hold you down indefinitely. This is a great quote to look to when you feel you have made a mess of things.
Whether you use one of these quotes or find another that inspires you, looking to those who have once been where you are now is a great way for the New York franchise owner to stay motivated and inspired.
