Crowdfunding and sports quotes

Here are some of the quotes you can look into and use as an inspiration as you manage your own crowdfunding project.

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”  — Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is one of the most well-known athletes in the world and he got to that status by working hard and never backing down. What he is saying with this is that when you find yourself in a predicament, choose to carry on rather than packing up your bags and heading the opposite direction. Choosing to walk away will not bring you any closer to your dreams. If there is a problem, face it and if you feel it is too difficult to solve then you just have to look harder for the answer. Sometimes the lesson that you need to learn would come from the journey and not the destination.

“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her.” – Mia Hamm

There will be times when you are already too consumed with work and you are trying to juggle a lot of things to make the project work. In all these, you could lose faith and start to crumble especially when things are not going your way. Mia Hamm is reminding you to look deep inside you and remember why you started with the campaign in the first place. That should keep you going until you reach your goal.

“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” — Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter knew that talent cannot be simply passed on from one person to another that is why when you look around, there seems to be a lot of people more successful than you. But this should not stop you from trying because though you cannot really do anything with how talented other people are, you can control how hard you work. You need to remember that there is no substitute for hard work and that talent without it is of no use to anyone.

“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.” — Wayne Gretzky

Wayne Gretzky knew the importance of foresight and being able to read the game to anticipate moves long before they happen. This is something you can develop when it comes to your crowdfunding campaign because being a few steps ahead of everyone else can be a great advantage in social funding.

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” — Muhammad Ali

This simply means that there will always be distractions along the way as you pursue your goals. The important thing is that you stay focused, handle any and all petty annoyances and stay on track. It does not mean that you should ignore small distractions but you need to prioritize because these small distractions can take a great deal of time as well as energy to resolve.
