30 Inspirational Quotes to Stay Motivated on Your Online Business Journey

Imagine this: You are publishing new posts multiple times a week, promoting your content on various social media platforms and always aiming at helping your audience. 

That’s what every post on how to build a successful online business will recommend you to do. 

But for some reason you are not seeing the growth you have expected. 

Instead, you website traffic is not really increasing at all. 

This is the moment, where many new businesses fail. 

Why so?

Well, most people want to see results right away. If that’s not the case, they ultimately loose motivation and give up their business. 

I don’t want this to happen to you! Especially at the beginning of your online business journey, it is super important to stay motivated and disciplined. 

That’s why I collected 30 inspirational quotes to stay motivated on your online business journey.

10 Inspirational Quotes to Stay Motivated

90% of Online Businesses Fail within 4 Months

In fact, according to a survey by MarketingSignals, 90% of all online businesses fail within 120 days. 

What’s the reason for this huge rate?

The survey speaks of “Poor online marketing performance coupled with an overall lack of search engine visibility”. 

This, of course, results in less growth leading to a loss of motivation.

What many people forget: It is completely fine to not master online marketing and SEO right away. 

And even if you are doing everything properly, it sometimes just takes a while to see significant growth. 

Sooner or later you will get to the point of success.

That’s why a tiring starting process, should not discourage you to keep going.  

30 Inspirational Quotes to Stay Motivated on Your Online Business Journey

Because of this challenging starting process, staying motivated is even more important.

With the following quotes I want to give you some input why you should pursue your goal of an own online business. 

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do."- Steve Jobs

The quite wants to tell us that you have to be passionate about a thing to be great in doing this thing. 

From my own experience, I can agree on that 100%. 

As you might have heard hundreds of time, building an online business requires you to deal with your niche very detailed.

Just think of content creation, researches and detecting new trends.

What makes this a thousands of times better?

To be passionate about your niche and love what you are doing. 

Especially, in hard time with low growth you this way more likely stay motivated!

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."- Winston Churchill

This is exactly what I wanted to convey to you in my introduction.

I can almost guarantee you that everyone who starts out with an online business will make mistakes. 

And that’s actually a good thing, because you learn from these mistakes. 

Instead of giving up in these hard times, try to detect what could have been done better. 

It almost always has a reason. 

Is it your user-unfriendly website design? Your barely insightful content? Or you not using must-have tools and resources?

Re-evaluate these things and keep going. It can only get better from there on!

Also, in times of success, take a moment and celebrate it. 

But at the same time, think about how you can expand your business. Always embrace the challenge!

The sky is the limit for your success.

"The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today."-Franklin D. Roosevelt

This quote is to show the importance of your mindset. 

It is actually all about the right mindset. 

There are two types of mindsets in hard times: 

  1. “I won’t make it”
  2. “I will make it”

Type 1 people will most likely give up their business any time soon. Hard times are a sign to give up for them. 

We don’t want to think like type 1 people.

Instead, type 2 people do not let anything come between theirselves and their business success. They see failure as an opportunity of learning 

This is of course a generalization, but I hope you get what I mean by this.

Staying positive and persistent is key to online business success.

"Believe you can and you're halfway there." – Theodore Roosevelt

Another reminder on the power of mindset and belief in achieving success. 

This quote is a bit more illustrative to me. 

See your online business project as a path that ultimately leads to you being successful. 

Just to have a strong belief and the right mindset (remember type 1) in what you are doing, makes things and especially hard times so much more bearable.

Trust in what you are doing ad you are halfway there!

"Opportunities don't happen, you create them." – Chris Grosser

You can ask every successful business owner, they will all tell you the same: 

Building a successful business is not a matter of luck, instead a result of taking proactive steps towards your goal.

In order words: Instead of waiting for opportunities to come to you, you have the power to create them through initiative, innovation, and hard work. 

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started." – Mark Twain

This is a reminder for those of you, who only dream of them being a successful online business owner. 

What can you do?

Get started! It is as simple as that. 

Take actionable steps towards your goal and see your dream come true.

The Takeaway

At the end of each of my posts I provide a short takeaway. Just to make sure you remember everything you learned today! 🙂

Here are the key messages I want you to remember for this post:

Everything is so much easier when done with passion. Try to find something (e.g. niche) that you really enjoy creating content for and that fulfills you.

This way, staying motivated is no challenge at all for you.

Remember that setbacks are part of the journey.

See hard times and mistakes as an opportunity for learning and growth.

Stay resilient in the face of challenges, and keep moving forward toward your goals.

Trust in your abilities and persevere, even when faced with doubts or obstacles.

 Deep self-belief is so powerful and will bring you to success in no time.

Remember the quote … Believe you can and you’re halfway there…

That’s what I mean!

What is worse than failing? Having not even started!

Do not only dream about your online business, but rather pursue it with actionable steps. 

Don’t wait for the perfect moment, because there is no perfect moment —start where you are with what you have.

Final Thoughts

Again staying motivated and disciplined is key to your online business success. 

Believe in what you are doing, keep up your hard work and, eventually, celebrate your success. 

You got this!
