Great ca­reer quotes

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - INVESTING -

ome­times you hit a point in your ca­reer when you need a lit­tle mo­ti­va­tion. You might be stuck in a rut, wor­ried about your job se­cu­rity, ner­vous about tak­ing on a new chal­lenge, or just feel­ing a lit­tle lost.

To pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion for those times when you need it, here are 10 quotes from ath­letes, en­trepreneur­s, artists, in­tel­lec­tu­als and vi­sion­ar­ies to mo­ti­vate you — no mat­ter where you are in your ca­reer.

1. 3. 4. 6. 7. 9.

“Find out what you like do­ing best, and get some­one to pay you for it.” “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep look­ing. Don’t set­tle.”

“Our great­est weak­ness lies in giv­ing up. The most cer­tain way to suc­ceed is al­ways to try just one more time.”

“Any­one who has never made a mis­take has never tried any­thing new.”

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my ca­reer. I’ve lost al­most 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game win­ning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I suc­ceed.”

“If you’re hurt, lick your wounds and get up again. If you’ve given it your ab­so­lute best, it’s time to move for­ward.”

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” “One im­por­tant key to suc­cess is self-con­fi­dence. An im­por­tant key to self-con­fi­dence is prepa­ra­tion.”

“You can’t use up cre­ativ­ity. The more you use, the more you have.”
