Check out these 8 Inspirational Quotes from Mark Cuban to Achieve Success:
“When you’ve got 10,000 people trying to do the same thing, why would you want to be number 10,001?”
You could do the same thing as everyone else…but why would you want to?! Set yourself apart from the crowd and you’ll achieve success.
“I love to compete. To me, business is the ultimate sport. It’s always on. There is always someone trying to beat me.”
Business isn’t a game, but the competition is certainly fierce. Each day you’re competing against others for success, and Mark Cuban knows a thing or two about winning.
“Treat your customers like they own you. Because they do.”
This may not sound like a good thing, but really it is. You’re working for your customers all day everyday. Every decision you make in business should ultimately be made to serve your customers better.
“Wherever I see people doing something the way it’s always been done, the way it’s ‘supposed’ to be done, following the same old trends, well, that’s just a big red flag to me to go look somewhere else.”
I’m seeing a recurring trend here… stand out from the competition if you REALLY want to succeed. Focus your efforts on being a differentiator and you’ll be on your way to success.
“Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it away from you.”
There’s not much to say about this one. Be on your game all the time or you could fall behind!
“It’s not about money or connections–it’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone…And if it fails, you learn from what happened and do a better job next time.”
To put this another way, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And as you’re trying, don’t get hung up on money and prestige…focus on doing great things and the money and connections will follow!
“What I do know, at least what I think I have learned from my experiences in business, is that when there is a rush for everyone to do the same thing, it becomes more difficult to do. Not easier. Harder.”
What else can I say? Things aren’t going to get easier when more competitors enter the market. You’re going to have to work hard to set yourself apart and outperform the competition.
“Don’t start a company unless it’s an obsession and something you love. If you have an exit strategy, it’s not an obsession.”
Passion is very important in business, wouldn’t you say? When you have passion for your business it becomes much more than just a job, which makes you all the more motivated to work toward success.
