9 Billionaire Quotes you need to succeed in Business

Billionaire Quotes

One of the secrets of successful people is mentorship even though they may not show it. Having someone to look up to or learn from is very important in life. To every billionaire or millionaire you see in life, they have that particular person most times above them they look up to. You start to ask, who does the richest person look up to? Now that is funny. One thing about rich, successful millionaires and billionaires is that they are voracious readers
They read a lot. Through that, they have those they have idolized and learnt from. They study how these people made their wealth and try to follow their steps. You and I have popular mentors who are writers of the popular books like 48 Laws of Power, Richest Men in Babylon, Rich Dad Poor Dad and so on. Even if you don’t know the writers physically, you admire the books and you don’t hesitate to pick them up anytime you need to get some inspirations or some ideas on a particular decision in business or life. Similarly, these successful people actually learnt the art of success through reading.

So quickly, we will study some of the quotes by these successful men and see how important they can be to our lives and businesses.

#1 Steve Wynn
‘Other People’s successes are good news; for them and for you. Good for you because they show you a way to go’.

Though in some part of the world or all over the world, they envy their fellow men successes, funny enough, when you envy or you are jealous of other people’s success, you tend to continue to remain below them. Look around, you discover you are never jealous of those below you but those above you. When you envy other people’s successes, you will never pass their stage of success. Similarly, the people that envy you will continue to remain below you. Now, other people’s successes should actually lead you and guide you. Stop looking at the bad and negative side of people; start to see their positive and good side.

#2 Oprah Winfrey
The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you are willing to work’.

Now pay attention to this, ‘willing to work’. Successful people are not or never forced to work. You need not push a man that wants to succeed, he will definitely push himself. Self-motivation is the best form of motivation in life. You move faster when you push yourself than when they push you. You can only get to the level people wish for you when they are the ones that pushed you. However, you get to the level you want for yourself when you push yourself. Aside having goals, you must be willing to work your ass out to achieve your goals.

‘Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning’.

The joy of every business man is the number of customers he has. Every businessman wants to keep the numbers of customers growing and it is actually one of the basic lessons in business management. Now, it is not possible every customer is delighted in your product or satisfied with the quality of your products, but your assignment still remain keeping both happy and unhappy customers. It is worthy to note that the customers that are satisfied with the quality of your products might not actually be your biggest customers that offer a lot financially to your business. It is those that actually offer a lot that get angry when they are not pleased with your product

It is simple. They have paid a lot, and they deserve such from your product. Now, you have to pay attention to their needs, requests and complaints. Study the dynamics of your customers. Have a complaint form, feedback form, let them tell you what they don’t like about your business and let them give you recommendations. That is the best way to remain in business. ‘In business, it’s about people; it’s about relationships’ – Kathy Ireland.

#4 Meg Whitman
‘Do what you love and success will follow; Passion is the fuel behind a successful career.’

You see Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi breaking records every week, Anthony Joshua earning big from boxing, you start to wonder, are they actually better than you on the field of play. To be sincere, they may not be as good as you are or better than you; the difference is that, they are at the right place and at the right time doing what they love. If you want to be successful in whatever you do, then it must be what you love. You can’t be complaining about your tools every day and expect them to give you joy. Always feel happy with whatever you are doing. If you feel sad about something, please stop doing it. Go and do what you love; that is what can give you joy and success.

#5 J.K. Rowling
‘It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.’

What is the essence of life without death; what is the essence of success without failure; what is the essence of a story without tragedy. `You want to live without failing, why don’t you just wish never to come to earth so you will never fail. Any successful person that tells you it’s possible not to fail is either not successful or lied to you. Failure is only a means to success, it is the road we pass through, the stairs we climb and the fight we win to carry success as a trophy. ‘Failure is a lesson that guides you to manage wealth’. ‘You don’t learn to walk by following rules; you learn by doing and falling over’ – Richard Branson.

#6 John D. Rockefeller
‘Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great’.

One of the recipes to being successful is sacrifice. Forget it; you can never be successful in life without losing something. Yes, success will definitely take something from you if you actually want to collect something from success. Yes, the sacrifice might be your time, friends, and your convenience, not seeing your family, comfort or anything. Just have it at the back of your mind that you must lose something to get something. However, make sure what you are getting is greater than what you are losing. Don’t be scared to drop some things just to succeed; some people may see it as madness, ignore them, and continue building your life. You alone have the right to your own life.

#7 Katrina Lake
‘Don’t be afraid of competition. People always say ‘other people are doing it’. The world is changing so fast, there is room for lots of players to innovate in different ways. Competition validates the market and it isn’t a bad thing’.

It is only a market with no promises that lacks competition. Every market that is auspicious would definitely have people struggle to get to the pinnacle of it. In business, competition is viable and should be healthy. The most constant thing in life is change. Now you have to learn to adjust to the changes in the market. Always study the market before you enter into it. And when you are there, make sure you also update and upgrade yourself and business. Don’t be rigid, analog or archaic. When you refused to adjust to the different tastes of customers, you lose them and you will be pushed out of business or the market. ‘If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten – Tony Robbins.

‘No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it’.

This particular point was disserted in 6 Steps of Successful Entrepreneurs. Every leader has a particular thing; how to carry their followers along. This is most characteristic in the lives of Mahatma Ghandi and Lee Yuan Kew. They very well exhibited this and that is why they have become idols in their countries. You can’t be the founder, CEO, Manager, Director at the same time in a business just because you want to see how things are done all the time. This would stifle your workers, feel untrusted and would find a way to leave your business for you

If you want the best from your employees, then you have to trust them. If they are sincere and loyal, your business would s
your workers, if they can’t be trusted, don’t employ them. ‘You got build a team that is so talented that they almost make you slightly uncomfortable…because they know by being with them, you are going to have to raise your game to be with them’ – Air BNB C Founder.

#9 Barbara Corcoran
‘Don’t you dare underestimate the power of your own instinct’

We have so limited ourselves in life that we don’t actually know what we carry. If you actually knew how tiny you were when you were born and how big you are now compared to then, you will know you can actually do great things beyond your own imagination. When a part of you pushes you to do a thing, and it is not unlawful, please don’t hesitate to do. No one can tell you more truth than what yourself or your spirit tells you. Therefore, never underrate what your instinct tells you. It guides you and protects you from bad decisions. However, you must be very sensitive to hear your instinct. Don’t rush at decisions. Take your time and be smart
