“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
Have you got what it takes?
Let’s look at the 5 Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs to see…
When you announce you’re quitting your job to start your own business, people will think you’re crazy and judge you – partly because they don’t understand your motives, and let’s face it, partly because they’re jealous you’re making your dreams a reality
You’ll need to have the courage to go your own way, even when everyone around you thinks differently or voices their objections
Every entrepreneur must have the fortitude to continue moving forward even in the face of failure. Otherwise, you’ll quit at the first sign of trouble or the first embarrassing mistake
Those who demonstrate strength of character always get stronger in the face of failure. How? By learning from the mistake and making modifications for the next opportunity.
Remember, it’s OK to fail
An entrepreneur must honour their commitments, act with integrity, and be honest at all times
If not for alignment to your personal moral compass, then do it for the public image (In this age of social media, consider everything you say and do to be “public record”— anything can go viral in a matter of minutes)
If you operate your business with integrity, you will earn the respect of colleagues and your customers, and won’t have to worry about a scandal
When you’re out on your own, nobody is going to give you a mid-year review to let you know how you’re doing or put together a plan for the next quarter
Nobody is watching you punch in and out, counting your sick days or micro-managing your tasks
That’s right: You’re accountable for yourself
It’s probably the most difficult one if we’re honest!
If you’re self-motivated, then that becomes much easier—you stay focused on what needs to get done and you don’t allow the lack of structure to negatively impact you. If you have trouble staying motivated, and we all struggle from time to time, remember why your why is so important
If you don’t love what you’re doing, why are you doing it?
As an entrepreneur, you should be passionate about your business — after all, you specifically chose it and built it
Plus, passion is downright contagious — it’s how you get others to buy into your vision, how you sell your product/service, how you connect with your customers, and how you get others to invest in your ideas
Look, we’re more resilient than we think
Don’t let your own fear, negative self-criticism or comfort zone keep you down.
Sure, you may try something new and fail…
We firmly believe we will never regret the things we’ve done, only the things we never tried
