These are great quotes, but they won’t be the thing that gets your business to succeed – you are. Finding your “get up and go” is an internal struggle that you must conquer if you want to succeed, and the words above are a testament to that. These self-made men and women have persevered through some of the greatest conflicts that our world has known—and they came out on top. Copiers that keep jamming, stale coffee or slow Wi-Fi were probably the least of their worries.

Allow these words to sink in, and then use them as the motivation needed to go make your own. Being an industry leader starts when you put one foot in front of the other, and go.
