By Alan Irazoqui.

It is important to start every day with the right mindset; the kind of mindset that will get you through any rough patch, sudden problems and possible burnout. An entrepreneur should have a strong will and motivation to drive the whole team to success. Here are 20 mantras that will come in handy anywhere anytime:

  1. I will win, not immediately, but definitely.
  2. Allow yourself to be a beginner; no one starts off being excellent.
  3. The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute. The man who does not ask, is a fool for life.
  4. You can have money and pay to be treated like you’re cool, or you can be cool and get paid to be you.
  5. Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.
  6. Only fools know everything.
  7. One day or day one. You decide.
