Entrepreneurship is a high-ranking position in society. You have to desire it. Entrepreneur is not entitlement. Entrepreneurship is a commitment. Wall Street’s famous line “You can’t be a little pregnant” is a classic example. You can’t be an entrepreneur on and off again.
You will discover that success is not a set of traits, but a collection of consistent characteristics. Your personality and your inner drive will determine your success. Your journey to becoming an entrepreneur will be easier if you can identify these traits. This is THE list. Take a look at what you already have and what you need to get there.
1. WHY? Find your “Why”
You will not have perfect times as an entrepreneur. There will be many challenges along the way. But if you are able to find your why, you will be able to achieve success. You must have a personal, passionate, and emotional reason to keep going when all around you tell you to quit. It is what motivates you to work hard and stay committed. Pushing through when all seems lost. Your “why” is your motivation to get up every morning and do it again tomorrow.
Persistence in the face and of opposition. When life and business are good, it is easy to feel passionate. The perfect attitude and mindset will be yours. But what happens when perfection is lost and hardships begin to set in? Do you have the same passion and dedication to drive forward? Winners do. The successful entrepreneurs do. Persistence is the key to success. This is what separates those who succeed from those who fail. Persistence is the key to separating those who dream from those who achieve. Never give up.
Your ability to dream is what first set you on your path to becoming an entrepreneur. Never stop dreaming. That dream led to goals that led eventually to persistence that led ultimately to success. Our ability to dream is what allows us to be creative and innovative. This allows us to envision our company as it will be, rather than what it is now. Your ability to dream big and keep dreaming big will propel your business and mind towards success.
4. Vision Success.
It is too often geared towards negativity in the world that we live in. It’s the negative images and thoughts of media, news articles and social media. This sells and gets you views. The Law of Attraction encourages entrepreneurs and people to see the bigger picture, visualize success, and then expect it. You will lose control of your vision if you allow the world to see it. Only you can hold onto the vision of success, and make it happen.
5. Outstanding Skills.
Our success will only be possible through our strengths. Our failures are not the key to our success. Entrepreneurs will always be able to identify those extraordinary skills. These skills are what made us entrepreneurs. It became apparent that we needed help in certain areas of our business. It is impossible to know all the details of running a business. It is our core belief in our extraordinary skills and the application of them that will bring us success.
Your commitment is the consistent, daily action that you must take in order to grow your business. Consistency is key. You can do a lot of work in short periods. But, success is only possible when you commit to taking consistent and daily action. Action requires commitment. It will never happen. We will never see success. Success is only possible when we are committed to action and work.
7. Be confident in your belief.
No matter how great your business idea may be, no one will believe the same thing about you. It could be your spouse, a family member, or friends. They will tell to you to quit, get on with your life, and then they will tell you to go back. You will need to believe in yourself to be able to overcome the worst moments of business. For ultimate success, belief is the most important attribute any entrepreneur or person can possess. You can move forward by believing that you will always be a hero even in the worst times. You will succeed if you don’t stop believing.
You can become an entrepreneur if you master the qualities of why, persistence and dreaming. These are the skills that will bring you success. Many entrepreneurs who had great ideas have failed to achieve their goals. It is not because of intelligence or business plans, but the intangibles that lead to success. This is why you can see that even the smartest person in a room is not always the best. Why? They were short of intangibles.
