Quotes for all Industries!

There are many statements and inspirational quotes from business executives. But what’s perhaps more interesting is the quotes from non-business executives.  Here we take a look at some by Yogi Berra (a Yankee baseball catcher), Gordon Ramsay (world famous chef) and Mohith Agadi (entertainment journalist).

First, Yoni Berra who said:

“If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up someplace else.” Translated into financial terms this means ‘start with a plan.’  Financial plans are – Berra believes – one of the most ‘underappreciated tools for investor success,’ and it is unfortunate that it is ignored by so many. 

Berra also said:

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it,” which means keep going. Keep trying despite failures and don’t be afraid to go a different route.

Second, Gordon Ramsay (not known for his inspirational cultivation of peoples talents) started once by saying:

“I don’t know what to say anymore,” which led his crew to believe that they had failed.  But then he made them laugh even more and congratulated them on their ‘best service yet.’

He also said:

“You have been a phenomenal, relentless competitor…You’ve been a joy to be around, you’ve put smiles on all our faces,” which encourages us that even when someone is not doing as well as we would like, finding the good is always preferable.

And finally we have Mohith Agadi, who advised:

“If you can’t connect the Dots, Find the right dots first… For Entrepreneurs, weekend neither starts nor ends… No matter how big or small the service is, Always express your Thanks to the person who served you…It doesn’t matter if you win or lose; what matters is if you learn from it or not.”

Words of wisdom from these three successful individuals show that one doesn’t have to be a business executive to offer advice and inspiration that can be applied in any industry and can help in entrepreneurial development.
