30 Powerful Quotes For The Self-Employed: Stay Motivated As You Start Out To Be Your Own Boss

Quotes for self employed

If you look and carefully observe the powers that be, those at the helm of affairs in any country you can think of, you will know that all these people are self-employed. Even before they are into government, they were once self-employed.

The truth of the matter also is, whether you are working for someone, or the government, you are indirectly working for yourself! Just as Brian Tracy put it, "you're not working for anyone. You are working for yourself. "

What are the secrets these people use? What do they inculcate in their habits daily? What keeps them going? They were focused, determined and dedicated. They did not allow failure to sidetracked them.

It is crystal clear, that most people want to be like Jeff Bezos, want to be like Aliko Dangote of Nigeria and so many. BUT, are we all ready to do and face what they have faced in the past? These people have been down, they have been up. They have experienced failures, yet they kept on keeping on

When you're on your own, no one cheers you up. No one claps for you. No one urge you not to give up. Chances are you do most of that for yourself.

If you're already working for yourself, or you are planning to start out on your own, these quotes, if you review them daily, will keep you going.
