I have had the privilege of working with many strong, entrepreneurial women who have overcome challenges to achieve their goals. Listening to their stories has made me realize that you should always appreciate the power of motivation and focus on the journey to success. 

If you find yourself struggling in your entrepreneurial journey, you should remember why you began in the first place. Here are five inspirational quotes that can help keep you empowered.

1. Conquer Your Fears

“Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got this.” – Chantal Sutherland

Chantal Sutherland has faced numerous obstacles in her career, but she refused to be intimidated and continued to believe in herself. As a strong, entrepreneurial woman, you must have the same approach. 

Believe in yourself, take on challenges, and conquer your fears. Don’t let anyone bring you down or tell you you can’t achieve your dreams. You have the skills, knowledge, and determination to succeed.

2. Write Your Own Story

“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and sh*t to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story – I will.” – Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer, an American comedian, actress, and writer, is known for her outspoken nature and feminist views. When facing obstacles in your business journey, this mindset has proven to be strong. 

You have a story to tell, and no one can determine it for you. You have the power to define yourself as beautiful, strong, and capable. Yes, it’s important to take feedback from others, especially constructive ones. But it helps to block out those who just tell you that you can’t do this or that — you know what you’re capable of, and you only have to listen to yourself.

3. Avoid Dwelling in the Past

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” – Will Rogers

In this quote, Will Rogers reminds us not to dwell on the past and to focus on the present. You must learn from your mistakes and failures and move on. 

Don’t let past setbacks hold you back or prevent you from moving forward. Use them as learning opportunities and keep pushing towards your goals.

4. Make a Difference

“Success isn’t about how much money you make; it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.” – Michelle Obama

Here, the former First Lady of the United States highlights the importance of making a difference in people’s lives. 

I believe that running a business and making a positive impact go hand in hand.  Entrepreneurship is about using your skills, knowledge, and resources to impact others positively. Whether it’s enhancing the lives of your clients or supporting your community, strive to provide value to everyone who comes across your business. 

5. Don’t Be Afraid of Failure

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill, a former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, reminds us that success and failure are not permanent. 

As a strong, entrepreneurial woman, you must have the courage to continue despite setbacks or obstacles. Don’t give up on your dreams or goals, even if you face rejection or failure. Use them as opportunities to learn, grow, and improve.
