Infographic: 100 Brilliant Minds and What They Said

Funding Circle, a UK and US peer-to-peer lending platform where small business and investors meet, curated hundreds of sayings from the foremost industry leaders of today and the past to produce the dynamic infographic “100 Brilliant Minds and What They Said”.

From renowned businessmen such as John D.

100 brilliant business minds - infographic

 

There are many other great business people that should make the list, such as my favourites social media guru Gary Vaynerchuk, Thailand’s young billionaire Aitthipat Kulapongvanich, Shark Tank’s Daymond John, GE Legend’s Jack Welch, and many more – but the 100-person-list is already massively inspiring.

The infographic is beautifully illustrated by Jordi Machi, that created unique caricatures to bring those leaders to life.

Check some of our favourite quotes:

Warren Buffett quote

“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.” – Warren Buffett

Investing is risky not because it’s volatility; it’s risky because the investor doesn’t understand what he/she is doing.  Investing without knowing what you’re doing is pretty much similar to gambling or betting. I’m not sure you want to take that path if you’re serious about making your money work harder for you.

Steve Jobs quote

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” – Steve Jobs

A leader see things others don’t. He/she translate his/her vision into reality via innovation.  Business visionaries like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk are often considered as silly, foolish or plain crazy for pursuing what they want to do.  What do they do to respond? The press on.

Oprah Winfrey quote

“I don’t believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.” – Oprah Winfrey

It’s said that when things go wrong with your business, you’re not failing; you’re learning. Fighting a good fight is satisfactory, even if you end up losing. You’ll gain experience and do things better for the next project. Rinse and repeat, and enjoy the whole process.

Jack Ma quote

“Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” – Jack Ma

As an entrepreneur, you have to have the eye of faith: You need to believe that there will be success in front of you. To get there, you may need to go through failure after failure.  Never give up, and keep your eyes on your goal/dream.

Now over to you…
