Starting a business isn't easy and in the beginning looks more like a game of Chutes and Ladders. Onemoment you're winning and the other, you have no idea what to do next. A part of business will be in place, but a part of it will look messier than a teenager's room.

With such ambiguity around you, you can't keep changing your principles or what you stand for. Your decisions on the way will change, and so will the way you think. But one thing that must remain is your approach towards your business. An approach and mindset that defines the way you do business. Something you wouldn't change come what so ever. We at Entrepreneur asked some entrepreneurs what is their business mantra set in stone and this is what they have to say.

"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve." - Manish Chandra, CEO and Founder, Poshmark

When you buckle down to it, it's all about persistence and staying optimistic in every aspect of your life -- recognizing that every cloud has a silver lining and the glass is always half full. Along this theme, there is a quote from Napoleon Hill, which reads: "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve." Every entrepreneur can relate to that, using it to motivate and perpetuate dreams, transforming goals into reality.
