Do you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur?

Not everyone has what it takes to become an entrepreneur. Common traits go beyond being the smartest, most talented, or access to resources that give them the proverbial “leg up.” Success comes from what seems to be minor disciplines that eventually will help them stand out among their peers.

Entrepreneurs are often referred to as “scrappy” in achieving success beyond their wildest expectations. For them, it comes from a commitment to the simpler things in life that provide them with the resilience to relentlessly achieve their professional goals.

Those characteristics include:

Proactive Preparation

Effectiveness requires readiness. Being prepared and organized keeps them focused on the tasks at hand. It provides entrepreneurs a combination of confidence and relaxation that leads to efficient operation. They prepare lists and calendars that cover both professional tasks and personal endeavors within a 24-hour period.

Ongoing Collaboration

The entrepreneur road should never be traveled alone. Creating a diverse team that shares the same objectives allow for different perspectives. Entrepreneurs cannot exist in a bubble. Involving others to help achieve goals brings a more fulfilling, shared success.

The Need To Recharge

Success requires sacrifice. However, entrepreneurs need time to take time for themselves and see that as equally valuable as time building their business. Quiet time spent alone can stave off burnout and keep them proactive, not reactive in their mindset. Having a life outside of the office allows them to enjoy the fruits of their labors.

Eliminate The Negative

Achieving goals will breed jealousy and naysayers from those who do not enjoy the same accomplishments. As the path to the top narrows, arrows of envy fly directed at entrepreneurs come from seemingly every direction. Ignore the jealousy and negativity. Stay focused on the road to business success.
