I founded Never Settle Inc. as a non-profit nearly 10 years ago from my college dorm. In that time, I’ve come to notice more and more celebrities, athletes, and innovators talking about “not settling” and even using “never settle” as a mantra of their own. Even major brands like T-Mobile, OnePlus, and Hennessy have jumped on the Never Settle bandwagon. While many of these adaptations completely miss the target, I believe there is wisdom and truth in others.
I’ve compiled some of my favorite quotes that encourage all of us to never settle in our own lives. I truly hope they inspire you! Feel free to share your favorites on social media with the hashtag #NeverSettle. Of course, I have to start my list with the quote that inspired me to create Never Settle Inc. and this blog.
