But most importantly, his quotes and sayings can be applied to anyone seeking success.

This collection of Dwayne's best quotes will motivate you when you're down, so here are some of The Rock's inspirational quotes below, and their entrepreneurial meanings.

1. "You only fail when you stop trying."

Does this need an explanation? If something in your life, whether it be business or not, is going all wrong, always ask yourself - are you trying to make it right?

Did you stop believing in it? Did you give up all of a sudden?

Whatever the case may be, always try your very best.

2. "It's you versus you."

These are one of the most important quotes you should remember. It's your negative thoughts that hold you back - nothing else.

Don't let your doubts flood into your mind and drag you down; fight for your dream. Make sure your worst enemy is not living between your own two ears.

3. "We are all a work in progress."

You are a work in progress - it's a fact. That means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Allow yourself and others time to grow - you aren't always perfect and impeccable and neither are other people.

No matter how flawless another person may look, it's just not possible to become a beautiful masterpiece when the paintbrush has barely stroked the canvas.

4. "Blood, sweat, and respect. First two you give, last one you earn."

Blood and sweat. Hard work and smart work. Unless you give it your all, you won't get a lot of results.

Only when you offer your blood and sweat - your hard work and smart work - you'll earn respect. Respect is crucial to running a business; crucial in life itself.

You've got what it takes, but it will take everything you've got to get to your goal.

5. "Success isn’t an overnight thing. It’s when every day you get a little better than the day before. It all adds up."

Success isn't about greatness - it’s about consistency. Trade in your dream of overnight success with slow, measured growth.

In business, patience is everything. If you want to be taken seriously, be consistent - and consistency requires patience.

6. "Success at anything will always come down to this - focus and effort, and we control both."

You have control of your life. Sure, it may not be over everything in life, but you control something - focus and effort.

Find the one thing you're good at and focus on it, because no one can stop you from keeping your attention on something.

Always keeping your business flying takes quite a bit of effort (not excuses) and when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens.

That's how change occurs. That's how you succeed.
