If they can, I can too
Entrepreneurs see possibilities not failures. They’re so into other people’s success stories and believe they can reach it and even exceed it. Operating on this level requires you to shift your focus into what can be done and take enough action to bring your belief into reality.
A problem solved equals money in the bank
Look for problems instead of avoiding them and know that a person’s own wealth is directly proportional to how effective he or she can solve problems. The more you look for problems to solve the more ideas you will bring to the marketplace and the higher your chances are for finding a hit.
They are more interested in results than efforts
Average people celebrate efforts while successful ones acknowledge nothing but results. Having the mindset of celebrating efforts instead of a reached a goal won’t make you successful, it will make you lazy and it will allow you to accept far less than you’re capable of achieving
Having a can do attitude instead of continuosly giving excuses
A mentality that refuses giving up and is against any and every obstacle is – a must have – for anyone willing to become an entrepreneur one day. A can do attitude is and will put an entrepreneur or a company on the top of the market where most business people/companies settle for average.
Not wasting time before taking actions
Successful entrepreneurs are the fastest at taking action under pressure and around fear. Train yourself to take action immediately, with less thinking, planning and less delaying, and you’ll be successful in all areas of your life.
Invest in thinking
Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and MarkZuckerberg all made billions by investing time and money in ideas. To be able to reach such a level of success, you should work on your intellectual and creative skills. At least mix and match ideas and look for new problems to solve. This will help make you wealthy.
Setting bigger goals than they already need
The work and pressure required to reach an average goal is actually similar to what you have to go through in order to reach a bigger goal. So why not aim higher in the first place??
Everybody is winning
You win when your team is winning. Help your team, partners or those who work under your command to go beyond their limits, and most of the time you will benefit from it.
Everything Should be measured
It`s the ‘Right’ practice that makes perfect, not just any type of practicing. Entrepreneurs must filter their actions to find out what works and what doesn`t so that they can maximize their results. Plans and results should be analyzed regularly to make sure that everything is OK. (See Why should goals be measurable?)
Being able to make difficult decisions
Whatever or whoever is blocking the reach of a goal should be fixed or eliminated as soon as possible which in many times require making brutal decisions (like firing non-performing coworkers and team members for example). This requires making choices that may go against the entrepreneur`s will.
Taking responsibility over everything
Assume control over everything (even the things that look external) and you’ll start believing that nothing and nobody will help you but you and your actions. You can pray and believe as much as you like, but you won’t get any responses until you take no excuses and do whatever it takes to succeed.
Taking enough risks to secure enough results
Entrepreneurship is a risk of itself. An entrepreneur should be willing to step out of his or her comfort zone more often and sometimes make bold moves in the market especially when boldness is the only way to compete with big companies that spend big money on advertising.
Being willing to reach out to overcome obscurity
Having a great idea or product is not effective without knowing how to promote this idea or product. This makes it essential for an entrepreneur to reach out and build strong social and business connections that will help him/her be known and thus get a larger demand.
The willingness to learn something new
Entrepreneurs must be open to the idea of continuous learning. Doing whatever it takes to reach a goal (which is a – must have – skill) requires the entrepreneur to fix holes and escalate his or her skills quickly and effectively especially when not too much money is available to pay for help.
Working solo can make a lot of money but it’s never easy or quick. Anyone who doesn’t have enough patience to stick to his/her project until a goal is reached won’t make it to the most successful of entrepreneurs. (See Why are some people very patient?)
Organizing the company to get quick revenues.
Companies are valued by how fast they can generate revenues and thoughts of quitting will emerge whenever results are not seen. A smart entrepreneur should keep getting quick results a priority to ensure maintaining the same level of motivation across the entire company/team.
