But, I’m here today to share 10 tips from some truly spectacular people around the world to inspire the aspiring entrepreneurs around us.

If you haven’t found that mentor, guru around you then here are 10 tips from some truly successful people to help you on you on your journey as aspiring entrepreneurs!

Believe in yourself.
As Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.” I think this is an great statement, we are all presented with obstacles everyday its how we overcome them to not make excuses is where the true motivation is.

Take the risk.
In life you will be presented with multiple risk opportunities, taking that gamble on a business, investing when someone presents you with an idea, to even something small. Jeff Bezos said it helped to know that he wouldn’t regret failure, he would regret not trying.

Take action.
The world we live in is full of great ideas, I meet people every day that present fantastic ideas to me, but taking action is the real step. Taking that idea and turning it into a reality. Walt Disney once said that the easiest way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

Do the time.
Investing time in yourself, your business or an idea is not wasted time. No one succeeds over night, we look at these successful entrepreneurs and think it was easy but they have had to put in thousands of hours to create some sort of success. As Steve Jobs wisely noted, “if you look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.”

Manage energy, not time.
We all have the same amount of hours in the day, but we don’t all share the same energy. Know your limits and plan wisely.

Have a vision.
The founder and CEO of Tumblr, David Karp, states that an entrepreneur is someone who has a vision for something and a desire to create it. A vision is so important, having that goal in mind to say this is where I want to be and this is what I want to achieve.

Challenge yourself.
Richard Branson says his biggest motivation is to keep challenging himself. In life, you never stop learning, experimenting, stumbling and getting back up. Life is like one big education, you should never stop learning.

Do work you care about.
There’s no doubt that running a business take a lot of time so invest that time into passions, invest it into something you love and it will never feel like work.

Find good people.

Surrounding yourself with people that can actually benefit you, grow you and inspire you will make all the difference. Roff Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn said that the fastest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already the way you want to be.

Face your fears.
Overcoming fear isn’t easy, it can build, it can consume you if you aren’t careful. Arianna Huffington once referred to fear as a muscle, she said that the more she exercised it the stronger it became. This is such a powerful statement when you think about it. Have a fear of public speaking? Force yourself to try it, even its just small and the more you try the easier it will become.
