Mid-summer of 2015, wondering what next after finishing my novel, I got a sudden epiphany: “The world is full of sorrow—inspire people.”

“But how?” I protested, being just one very insignificant atom in a giant universe.

“Post your original, unpublished, motivational/inspirational quotations on Google Plus,” the relentless voice whispered.

I thought I was losing my mind.  The amount of time and work involved, not to mention giving away prized intellectual property for free? How could this be?

Reason, thankfully, did not prevail. I began posting quotes on Google Plus, and to my surprise, they were an instant success! People all around the world began sharing them, and within one month, I had over 1 million views.

Encouraged by the early success, I persevered, and since then I have had over 8 million views and my quotations have been featured in various newspapers, blogs, and magazines around the world, including Inc. Magazine, garnering thousands-and-thousands of dollars’ worth of free publicity. I have also been endorsed by 17 bestselling authors, Grammy Award winning artists, renowned scholars and C.E.O’s of large corporations.  Doors have been opening like never before since; a testament to the timeless wisdom of helping yourself by helping others.

Below are 20 quotes of mine that I hope will inspire you on your entrepreneur journey.  Enjoy!

  1. Risk is the twin of reward.
  2. Taking the road less travelled is easier; there is less congestion.
  3. Believe in yourself because no one else will believe in you.
  4. Failure is disguised success.
  5. Adversity is the door to opportunity.
  6. Failing over and over again is how you learn to succeed over and over again.
  7. What you seek for others you find for yourself.
  8. Generosity is inverted prosperity.
  9. You are your greatest asset in the business of your life.
  10. A lifelong learner is a lifelong winner.
  11. An army is greater than a warrior.
  12. Your mind is more creative than any machine.
  13. The limits you set in your mind are the limits you set in your life.
  14. What you build in your dreams build in reality.
  15. Fear is a greater enemy than failure.
  16. Conquer your fears before they conquer you.
  17. Do not fixate on the odds against you but on victory ahead of you.
  18. Use the pebbles of failure to build yourself a bridge to success.
  19. Moving rocks today strengthens you for moving mountains tomorrow.
  20. Dream all you will, dare all you can, and do all you must.
