Find motivation with these motivational quotes

Pursuing your passion and starting a successful business often comes with its fair share of highs and lows. The highs embody the vision towards which we strive, the glory associated with its accomplishment and the fulfilment that comes from achieving excellence. It is not the highs however that we should worry about… it is those low moments which in many cases go untold that we should be wary of. Many entrepreneurs will admit that there are instances where one considers quitting. I’ve been there a couple of times myself. Despite having the support of our teams and families, it is also important to look within oneself to find motivation. Below are a few quotes which have kept me going when the odds seemed stacked against me. Some helped me refocus, whilst others reminded me what matters the most as I built the Business Builder- Small Business Management Suite. Enjoy
