Ever wondered why people go out to create their own jobs? 
Ever wondered why people go own to create innovative ideas, goods or services that are aimed at contributing some essential benefit to the society? Maybe it's the desire for an extra source of income? Maybe it's all part of a plan to contribute their own quota to the society? Maybe it's to change the way the world reasons and react to situations around them? Maybe it's just a burning desire to own their own company and offices? Or maybe it's out of boredom? 

Take a look at some of the branded items around you..your personal computer, your bottle of drink, your pen, your phone, your dress/shirt, your shoes or whatever item around you that was not created by you. Just take a quick inspection of these goods, idea or services and try to imagine why the creators/developers thought of innovating it.  Even though, it's not an entirely new idea [for example, a phone] why are there so many brands making almost similar products? It all boils down to one thing: people create something out a need to solve a problem or an issue.

Whether you need a motivational, inspiration, life, moral or hard work push in the right direction these inspirational quotes are sure to trigger innovative ideas and keep you going in the right (successful!) direction. 
1. I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying. -- Michael Jordan
Just like the great Yoda once said, “Do, or do not. There is no try.” You may fail at some things in your life, but you’ll fail at life if you don’t continually try and do new things.
2. Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender, it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment. -- Stephen Covey
It is common to be in a rush to reach the destination called success. There's success with a romantic partner, which usually means marriage or success with a business, which usually means an IPO or exit strategy. Success is often measured by the destination. However, if you can learn to be patient, and continually improve yourself while enjoying the journey, the trip to every success will be as pleasant as the destination. Improving yourself is always worth the investment.
3. In every success story, you will find someone who has made a courageous decision. -- Peter F. Drucker
Success takes a spirit of adventure and an aptitude for bravery. It isn’t that the brave don’t have fears, it’s that they chose to move forward anyway.
4. If you can dream it, you can do it. -- Walt Disney
Every great success starts with a big vision. What’s yours?
5. We must train from the inside out. Using our strengths to attack and nullify any weaknesses. It’s not about denying a weakness may exist but about denying its right to persist. -- Vince McConnell
Investing in yourself means a continual assessment of self-improvement, and that process weeds out our weaknesses. It’s not about perfection, but if we focus on overcoming our inner obstacles to success, we can conquer the world within and then the world outside.
6. All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
Leadership, like entrepreneurship, takes courage and the ability to remain comfortable in times of discomfort. The more you can cultivate being at ease during times of challenge, the greater your life and your leadership will be.
7. My best advice to entrepreneurs is this: Forget about making mistakes, just do it. -- Ajaero Tony Martins
Don’t focus on the failures. Focus on the journey toward results. It’s better to do something and fail than to not try anything at all.
8. Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes but they don’t quit. -- Conrad Hilton
There is action required for all success. Success never means a lack of failures along the path, but always means your continue down the path even after stumbling or falling. It’s the old proverb that you might fall down nine times, but to be successful you must stand up 10 times.
9. Ambition is the steam that drives men forward on the road to success. Only the engine under full steam can make the grade. -- Maxi Foreman
You need a big vision and some lofty ambition to change the world, even if the world you aspire to change is only your own local community. Dream big and take action toward those ambitions.
10. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field. -- Dennis Waitley
Never stop learning. If you aren’t learning, then you’re quickly becoming obsolete. Surround yourself with smart people who will always challenge you with new ideas, new technologies and show you new ways things could be done.
