Ten Quotes to Motivate and Push Yourself Forward

Entrepreneurship Campus

People who are considered successful or great minds from scientist to artists prove that the creative process is the same no matter when or where it is applied. They speak about ideas, change, and self-improvement as key factors that make things happen.

A good idea is only a small part of the process. It takes a combination of skills, hard work, experience, and patience.

If you need to polish your skills, take our free online training. If you lack experience, ask the campus members for advice. If you need to try what hard work means, submit an idea or project and try to be among the finalists of our competitions.

“Many founders often start their companies with a great idea rather than starting with the real problem. A great idea will only work if it solves a problem for your target customers.”
Ingrid Devin

“A thought is an idea in transit.”
Pythagoras

“Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know.
Rembrandt

“A good idea will keep you awake during the morning, but a great idea will keep you awake during the night. “
Marilyn Vos Savant

“The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas.”
Linus Pauling

“The idea is there locked inside. All you have to do is remove the excess stone.”
Michelangelo

“You never suffer from a money problem, you always suffer from an idea problem.”
Robert H. Schuller

“The only way you survive is you continuously transform into something else. It’s this idea of continuous transformation that makes you an innovation company.”
Virginia M. (Ginni) Rometty

“One day or day one. You decide.”
Unknown

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
Leo Tolstoy

    Thanks

  14. well said
    passion and determinations are what matter to develop a mature concept of your idea, now the complex question usually which guides these destructive innovations/ideas depends on how you “understand the problem you are trying to solve”!

  15. “If You Are Working On Something That You Really Care About, You Don’t Have To Be Pushed. The Vision Pulls You.” – Steve Jobs

    “The Way Get Started Is To Quit Talking And Begin Doing.” – Walt Disney

    “To See What Is Right And Not Do It Is A Lack Of Courage.” – Confucius

  16. I will put more effort to develop myself first and do it with great zeal so that I can transform the world

  17. If your ideas consist of little more than random, incomplete thoughts existing outside a framework for execution you might have a problem. If you don’t understand the difference between ideas and innovation it’s likely all your great ideas haven’t amounted to enough to buy a cup of coffee. Disruptive innovation is rarely as simple as raw genius that bubbles-up. Most often innovation is the culmination of several things: a sound idea, vetted through great process, refined by innovative application, and brought to market by outstanding leadership. The difference between an idea and innovation is execution – don’t be the “idea” person, be the innovator.

  18. before I submit to this campus, I was suffering from depression and not having future, Although I believed that I value a lot, but now after about 15 days, not only my manners changed, even now my future seems so bright because I get the opportunity that I needed to build my structure.
