We’ve been sharing one piece of inspiration every week for the past eight weeks. These consist of thought-provoking bits of wisdom from business leaders, entrepreneurs, famous personalities, Zoho customers and employees. Note: these are not your typical boring business–speak quotes. Each is handpicked and crafted into a poster, ready for you to use as artwork in your workspace that will help you stay motivated and on the path to success!
We’re calling this mix #recipeforsuccess and we’re thrilled with the responses we’ve gotten to the eight recipes that we’ve shared so far!
Take a look at the first 8 recipes, with some of our customers’ comments about them.
Stay on track. Is what you’re doing today going to help you get to where you want to be? If not, it’s time to revisit your goal and the actionable steps it will take to get there.
Hard work pays off. Having a good idea will start a journey, but elbow grease is what’s going to help you reach your destination.
One of our users, Thenamuthan Atm, had another idea of what constitutes genius. The formula? “Confidence + Being Smart.”
Jump over obstacles. Don’t let negative scenarios that run in your head paralyze you. Keep your goals in mind and keep pushing forward.
Remember what you’re passionate about. Passion is a serious driving force! Ask yourself why you do what you do, and keep that in mind when you hit rough patches on the road.
In response, Mark Roberts wrote “We started FirstLight HomeCare WestIndy, a veteran owned home care business helping veterans!!! If you never take a leap of faith you never will know!!!”
Change things for the better. If you notice that meetings or any aspect of your business is not working out well, find out why and set an action plan to increase productivity.
Don’t give up. Or be discouraged. No one said running a business was built from a first idea or one brainstorming session. If a plan doesn’t work out, be flexible and try another one.
In response, Kashif Tufail Bhatti added, “If all 26 plans fail, try other languages. :)”
Strive for good. There’s nothing like building a business that you’re passionate about that also solves a problem that society has. If you share your passion with others, you’ll have strong supporters.
Make it happen. After all, the best part about a business dream is seeing it become a reality! Get busy and take action.
Mark Brutus Thurman emphasized getting a head start at doing. “Start early. Its amazing how much you can get done before 9am when the phone starts ringing…”
