20 Business Quotes that Successful Leaders Live by

Here are 20 famous business quotes that all successful leaders live by:


Warren Buffett

1. “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you thing about that, you’ll do things differently.” Warren Buffett

2. “There comes the time when you ought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?” – Warren Buffett


Jeff Bezos

3. “”Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.” Jeff Bezos

4. “In business, what’s dangerous is not to evolve.” – Jeff Bezos


Mark Cuban

5. “Focus on building the best possible business. If you are great, people will notice and opportunities will appear.” Mark Cuban

6. “It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because all that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are.” Mark Cuban


Steve Jobs

7. “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs

8. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs


Mark Zuckerberg

9. “The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’… Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time. And that’s what this company is.” Mark Zuckerberg


Bill Gates

10. “Be nice to geeks, you’ll probably end up working for one.” Bill Gates

11. “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” – Bill Gates

12. “If you show people the problems and you show people the solutions they will be moved to act.” – Bill Gates


Pete Cashmore 

13. “We are really competing against ourselves, we have no control over how other people perform.” – Pete Cashmore


Walt Disney

14. “I’d say it’s been my biggest problem all my life.. it’s money. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true.” Walt Disney

15. “Money doesn’t excite me. My ideas excite me.” – Walt Disney


Donald Trump

16. “Without passion, you don’t have any energy, and without energy, you simply have nothing” Donald Trump

17. “If your business is not a brand, it’s a commodity.” Donald Trump


Marissa Mayer

18. “I always did something that I was a little not ready to do. I think that, that is how you grow. When there’s a moment of ‘Wow, I’m not so sure that I can do this, and you push through those moments, it’s then that you have a breakthrough. Sometimes that’s a sign that something really great is about to happen. You’re about to grow and learn a lot more about yourself.” – Marissa Mayer


Richard Branson

19. “Too many companies want their brands to reflect some idealised perfected image of themselves. As a consequence, their brand acquires no texture, no character.” Richard Branson

20. “Entrepreneurial business favors the open mind. It favors people whose optimism drives them to prepare for many possible futures, pretty much purely for the joy of doing so.” – Richard Branson
