Top 10 Quotes by Successful Business Leaders Around The World

Business is like a shark tank filled with wonderful opportunities. Sometimes you might find yourself sinking, sometimes running away from killer sharks, and sometimes moving way ahead than others. 

Whether you have just started or are thinking about expanding your business model, a few motivational quotes from the people who made it successful in their businesses can motivate you in your journey ahead!


Jeff Bezos

The founder of the e-commerce giant had once said, “I knew that if I failed, I wouldn’t regret that. But I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.” And we could not agree more!

Warren Buffett

One of the top 10 richest men on Earth, Mr. Buffet, was quoted as saying that “It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to get extraordinary results.” This statement is so profound and accurate, especially if you think how a small effort, every day, can ultimately bring about great results. 

This great businessman also said, “It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose  behavior is better than yours, and you’ll drift in that direction.”

Larry Page

One of the founders of Google, Larry Page, had said, “You don’t need to have a 100-person company to develop that idea.” Sometimes all you need is a dedicated effort of a select few!

Ben Horowitz

This successful entrepreneur and businessman said, “In my experience as CEO, I found that the most important decisions tested my courage far more than my intelligence. Every time you make the hard, correct decision, you become a bit more courageous, and every time you make the easy, wrong decision, you become a bit more cowardly.” 

He also commented that “Whenever I meet a successful CEO, I ask them how they did it. Mediocre CEOs point to their brilliant strategic moves or their intuitive business sense or a variety of other self-congratulatory explanations. The great CEOs tend to be remarkably consistent in their answers: They all say, ‘I didn’t quit.’ 

Jack Welch

Jack Welch was the chairman of General Electric for two decades and had inspired generations of people in the business. He had said that “Before you are a leader, success is about growing yourself. When you become a    leader, success is about growing others.” 

Steve Jobs

Founder of Apple and the game-changer in the field of technology, Steve Jobs is an inspiration to all of us. He had said,” “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

Arianna Huffington

The co-founder of Huffington Post had shared this thought when asked about success,” “We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes — understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”

Tim Ferriss

The successful entrepreneur had said that “The stars will never align, and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually,’ just do it and correct the course along the way.”

Biz Stone

Stone’s view of success is that “Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.”

Jack Ma

The Chinese business magnate had said that “Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” He also said something even more significant: “You should learn from your competitor but never copy. Copy, and you die.”

When we talk about Jack Ma, inspirational words are too many to fit a page; for example, he had also said that” We are never in lack of money. We lack people with dreams who can die for those dreams.”

Final Thoughts 

I hope these inspiring words motivate you to grab your dreams and turn your business ideas into a remarkable reality because, as Jack says, “Once in your life, try something. Work hard at something. Try to change. Nothing bad can happen.”
