Some Inspirational Quotes From Jeff Bezos
- If you don’t love your work, you’re never going to be great at it.
If you get your work life to be where you enjoy half of, that is amazing because very few people ever achieve that because the truth is everything comes with overhead. That’s reality, everything comes with pieces that you don’t like, every job comes with pieces you don’t like and we need to say that’s part of it.
- Think About Your Choices
We all have gifts but always remember our gifts do not construct our lives, our choices do.You can choose a life of ease and comfort or you can choose a life of service and adventure. How will you use your gifts? What choices will you make? When it’s tuff, will you give up or will you be relentless? It’s all about choices and in the end we are our choices. Build yourself a great story by making the right choice.
Whatever choices we make makes us who we are. At the end of the day our choices will bring out the real us. I choose hard work over being lazy, I choose a life of service and adventure over living a life of ease.
