Top 100 Richard Branson Quotes

I have always believed that the way you treat your employees is the way they will treat your customers, and that people flourish when they are praised.

Whatever your goal is you will never succeed unless you let go of your fears and fly.

Capitalism – which in its purest form is entrepreneurism even among the poorest of the poor – does work; but those who make money from it should put it back into society, not just sit on it as if they are hatching eggs.

Hard-won things are more valuable than those that come too easily.

Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.

Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.

There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.

As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.

You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.

Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.”

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”
“Life is a helluva lot more fun if you say yes rather than no”
“Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.”
“Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.”
“The brave may not live forever – But the cautious do not live at all”
“I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive then I believe you are better off not doing it. A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”
“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.”
“Throwing yourself into a job you enjoy is one of the life’s greatest pleasures!”
“As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.”
“Business opportunities are like buses; there’s always another one coming.”
“There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.”
“Only a fool never changes his mind.”
“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
“It is only by being bold that you get anywhere. If you are a risk-taker, then the art is to protect the downside.”
“Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”
“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.”
“Most “necessary evils” are far more evil than necessary.”
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

“You get the idea. Every business, like a painting, operates according to its own rules. There are many ways to run a successful company. What works once may never work again. What everyone tells you never to do may just work, once. There are no rules. You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over, and it’s because you fall over that you learn to save yourself from falling over. It’s the greatest thrill in the world and it runs away screaming at the first sight of bullet points.”

“In the same way that I tend to make up my mind about people within thirty seconds of meeting them, I also make up my mind about whether a business proposal excites me within about thirty seconds of looking at it. I rely far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics.”
“I have always believed that the way you treat your employees is the way they will treat your customers, and that people flourish when they are praised.” Sir”
“Good brands reflect the histories of the time and the group of people that made them. They can not be copied. They can not be recycled.”
“The best lesson I learned was to just do it. It doesn’t matter what it is, or how hard it might seem, as the ancient Greek, Plato, said, ‘The beginning is the most important part of any work.”
“There have been times when I could have succumbed to some form of bribe, or could have had my way by offering one. But ever since that night in Dover prison I have never been tempted to break my vow.. My Parents always drummed into me that all you have life is your reputation: you may be very rich, but if you lose your good name you’ll never be happy.”

Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.

If things aren’t quite falling into place with a business idea, just cut your losses, reorganize, and be ready for the next approach.

The brands that will thrive in the coming years are the ones that have a purpose beyond profit.

The brands that people will love will be the ones that make a difference to the world.

Don’t be embarrassed by your failures. Learn from them and start all over again.

After a failure, we can start again and this time we can do it in a better way and move forward.  So rather than giving up, learn from the mistakes and keep moving.

You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.

Forget the rules, and learn from the first-hand experience instead. Start practicing practically. There’s so much more to be gained from not knowing how to do things the ‘correct’ way and learning to do them your way.

A business is simply an idea to make other people’s lives better.

Business is something that you create to make people’s lives easier and provide them with what was missing.

Entrepreneurship is about turning what excites you in life into capital so that you can do more of it and move forward with it.

Turn your passion into a profession. Doing what excites you and what you love is surely going to bring you success.

Whatever your goal is you will never succeed unless you let go of your fears and fly.

Everything you have ever wanted is on the other side of the fear. Don’t let your fear hold you back.

Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.

As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.

Whatever you are doing, enjoy doing that. Goals can’t be accomplished forcefully.

To me, business isn’t about wearing suits or pleasing stockholders. It’s about being true to yourself, your ideas, and focusing on the essentials.

It’s not always like how it looks from the outside. It’s about focusing on the things that matter and serving the purpose.

My definition of success? The more you’re actively and practically engaged, the more successful you will feel.

Utilize your day and your time effectively. How productively you are using your time will make you feel how closer you are to accomplish great things.

 

One thing is certain in business. You and everyone around you will make mistakes.

It’s absolutely okay to make mistakes as long as you are learning from them and you don’t quit.

Hard-won things are more valuable than those that come too easily.

It is a different feeling of satisfaction after achieving something for which you have worked really hard.

If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!

Never say a “NO” when an opportunity knocks your door. You will learn something out of it for sure.

The one person who can make your business succeed is not an investor or even a mentor, it is you.

You have to give your everything to it, perform your level best, and with that determination, it will be you who will make your business succeed.

Find the right people to work with and you can’t go wrong.
