    My father told me "Don't do it" , when I was thinking about starting my first business. You should have seen his face when I told him I have a new car for him. But it helped me when I was thinking about going into Real-estate business...that time he was right.

    I agree with this one. I think the concept of over delivery is pervasive and powerful that it alone will handle many business problems.

    it's not about what you have done, its about what you are doing...

    in otherwords focus on today... not you success or failures you had yesterday.

    That's slightly unusual advice, is it not good practice to work on things that you believe will succeed?

    For me it would be the serenity prayer 'grant me the courage to change the things I can change, the patience to endure the things I can't and the wisdom to know the difference!' - sounds like good business to me. M.

    What moved me until today was when I heard, “Be relevant." Business isn't all about money but primarily, service.

    Work hard and do not be afraid to put some effort into what you are doing.

    If you want to see your business success then you have to work hard, don't get lazy in any situation. Only rely on the professional workers. You can get them on any good freelance site.

    Basically, it's the serenity prayer: "grant me the courage to change the things I can change, the patience to endure the things I can't and the wisdom to know the difference" - it seems to work in so many entrepreneurial and managerial situations... M.

    Yes I really like that as well. Serenity prayer always makes my day and my spirit complete.

    When you waken each morning do not lie thinking about the day ahead - get up straight away telling yourself "This is going to be my best day ever"
