Top 10 Dan Lok Quotes
We chose Dan’s top 10 quotes related to business. There are many others, but these are the ones he is most well known for.
Let’s jump straight into it.
1. Drowning people will pull you under.
If you’re one of those people that want to win at any cost, the universe will punish you. Don’t hurt people for your own benefit.
If you focus on helping others, you will 100% be better off in the long run.
2. A penny saved is still just a f*cking penny.
Maybe you will not agree with this one, but it just doesn’t make sense to stash all your money.
Of course it’s good to have some money saved on the side, but if you don’t invest in your business, then … where will you end up?
The lack of investment is the way to mediocrity. And you don’t want to live in mediocrity all your life.
3. Entrepreneurs solve people’s problems at a profit.
This is the probably the best definition of what an entrepreneur really is. If you think about it, it does make sense.
Think about any entrepreneur. Everything he does comes down to solving problems.
You obviously need to think about profit as well, but the first thing that should come to your mind is how to solve your customer’s problems.
4. Many entrepreneurs lack focus. They cannot focus on one thing. They jump from one thing to another. The greatest edge you can have is laser beam focus.
This relates to the shiny object syndrome. We all have it …
Unfortunately not so many entrepreneurs get past that. When things get though and that motivation you have in the beginning fades, they start looking in other directions for the path of least resistance.
Don’t give up. Consistency is key in any business.
5. Most entrepreneurs fail because they underestimate the difficulty and the effort that it takes to succeed.
Just another fact. I’m sure you can relate to this.
You thought that starting your own business will be a walk in the park. Well, having a successful business is very hard unfortunately.
Without the right mindset, it is very difficult to succeed.
6. Choose who you listen to carefully. You listen to their advice, you will get their lifestyle.
I partially agree with Dan on this one. There are SO MANY GURUS that give bad advice that doesn’t lead to you getting their lifestyle.
“Make money online with 1 hour per day of work”
“Start a business that generates 10k per month in just under 2 months”
“Buy my $997 course and get passive income”
YES, choose who you listen to. But are they actually doing what they teach you? Or are they making money just by selling you the dream?
7. A limited offer has unlimited appeal.
This is actually true. Scarcity is a very powerful marketing tactic.
I’m sure you’ve seen that timer that is running out whenever you are on a sales page.
Also, I’m sure you’re smart enough to realize that once that timer reaches to 0, the clock resets.
Many people don’t know this. And that’s why the online marketing guys make so much money every day.
8. Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes… but no plans.
What is the difference between a successful entrepreneur and some buys at the local bar that get drunk every night and tell each other what they will do in the future?
Commitment. And also discipline.
If you’re just talking about things without doing anything in order to get them … you just prolong your agony.
It’s the same as saying you will lose weight but keep eating at McDonald’s every day. If your action don’t match your words, then there’s no sense to speak.
9. Nothing gets done without a deadline.
This one ties very well into the previous quote. You need to set deadlines in order to make sure you achieve the things you want.
Put pressure on yourself. Don’t waste time thinking.
Do the work and you will be rewarded. You will be surprised how your business rewards your hard work.
Treat your business right, and it will treat you right back.
10. Geniuses are made, not born.
Obviously not everyone is the same. Some people are born with a higher IQ.
BUT that doesn’t stop you to put in the time and effort to become very good at something. Do you think Dan Lok is so much smarter than you?
I don’t. I think he just worked his ass off and that’s why he is where he is. There’s nothing stopping you to become as successful as him.
Nothing apart from from your mindset. And that can be changed through hard work.
Dan Lok is one of the most influential entrepreneurs in the world. Hopefully you got positively influenced by these 10 quotes and you will take action and build a profitable business!
In case you already have a business, keep hustling and believe in yourself.
For that matter, I suggest you take the OFA challenge. It’s really great value and it’s truly worth it.
