An Entrepreneur needs these 7 Qualities

Although every entrepreneur is unique and positively endowed in terms of gifts, talents, and abilities, however, some entrepreneurs possess some exceptional qualities which stand them apart from the average business owner. Highlighted below are some of the qualities that can make a difference in the life of an entrepreneur:

Positive Mindset

To succeed in life, one must have the ability to be optimistic. Optimism is the ability to think of possibility even in the face of failure and defeat. A positive minded entrepreneur is always searching for a solution to a problem. This unique quality gives the entrepreneur an edge over the average business owner.

Goal Setters

The ability to set and achieve a goal is another unique characteristic of a business person. Setting daily, monthly and yearly goals is a priority in the life of an entrepreneur. These goals are a great source of motivation and incentive.

Focus

The success of every entrepreneur depends largely on the ability to focus on the essential things in life. It is only when one can focus on life, that one can have the rare ability to concentrate on issues that are key to the attainment of the desired end. This unique characteristic is present in the life of every entrepreneur.

Determination

This is the ability to remain committed to a course or goal. If you are determined, procrastination will never be a problem. Determination is a virtue that keeps a business person on alert. it is like a prime mover in the wheel of the entrepreneur as the ability to venture into areas where others are afraid to go is made available.

Passion

There must be a desire and a burning passion inside of you before you can obtain whatever you need in life. If you are passionate about success, it is a sign that you are on the right track. Having a passion for something will give you the extra energy to continue when others have given up. It is what keeps you awake at night when others are busy sleeping.

Foresight

This is the ability to envision the result of plans and proposals earmarked for the achievement of the desired goal. A business person can see profit where others are seeing losses. Foresight will enable the entrepreneur to make a sound decision and set distinct goals.

Creativity

What distinguishes an exceptional entrepreneur from the average business owner is the ability to come up with new ways of doing things. They are creative and unusual in their thinking pattern. One thing that they have going for them, is the ability to implement these creative ideas. Fear of failure does not hinder them from achieving their set goals and desires.

Passion is key to success in Life

Passion defined

Passion is a strong emotion or enthusiasm for something. Passion is stronger than love and can sometimes be so overwhelming. It is what keeps you going when all things around you seem to be falling apart.

At a concert held in 2008, a young professional singer came on stage and sang a popular song to the admiration of everyone. The entire audience stood up and clapped after her rendition. She had an amazing voice and her rendition was wow!

As she walked off the podium, an old man walked up to the stage and asked the concert organizers for a special favor. He wanted to sing a song. There was a brief hesitation, and finally, he was allowed to sing.

The old man climbed the podium and sang the same song the lady sang. There was pin-drop silence in the 5,000 capacity concert hall. The song resonated with the packed audience. In the end, there were tears in the eyes of everyone in the hall.

The difference between both performances was passion. The lady came to deliver professional performance. She was paid to sing. The old man sang from the heart. He had a deep desire, that transcended beyond just money. Music was a way of life for him.

Passion kept him going when things were tough

Vincent Kompany was an extraordinary footballer. The former captain of Manchester City and the red devils of Belgium had some beautiful moments. He also had some bad moments in his career, as he battled constantly with injuries.

Kompany’s amazing career at City was disrupted by more than 30 injury setbacks. Calf, Shin damage, muscle, groin, hamstring, and abductors injuries were always plaguing the big center-back. He never gave in to these injury setbacks, but always worked his way back to the team after each setback.

The desire for the game made him stronger each time he fell to injury setback. His raw passion to see City succeed made him endure pain in matches where he wasn’t expected to feature. He played through the pain barrier.

In his last season at City, Kompany scored an amazing goal against Leicester. It was a crucial goal that helped City win the EPL title and inked his name in City’s history books. His passion when he scored that long-range effort was lovely to behold. It was almost overwhelming seeing the happiness in his face as he ran the entire field to celebrate with City fans.

When others had given up hope on the big Belgian, he held on tenaciously to the game he loved. It was an excited and passionate Vincent Kompany that lifted the EPL trophy on the 12th of May 2019 after trumping Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium to clinch the title for the fourth time.

The journey is not always smooth, but passion will always lift your heart

In the journey of life, there would be moments of pain and heartache. There would be betrayals from those you love when they don’t support your dreams in life. The temptation to abandon that which you love may appear so strong, but passion will always lift your spirit.

When you are passionate about what you do, nothing else matters. Discouragement from those who you hold so dear cant stop you. Negative comments from haters can’t stop an individual who is passionate about succeeding in life. You alone, hold the key.

The journey may be rough. The road may appear bumpy. The beautiful moments may not be visible, but when you are passionate about what you’re doing, that’s all that matters.

Your passion will create unlimited income streams for you

Passion is the fuel that drives your dream in life. What keeps you going when others have given up is the passion you have for that idea or business. If you want to achieve financial success in life, do what you love to do.

This is one of the great secrets of financial success. This is also one of your primary responsibilities in life. It is to find out what you really enjoy doing, what you have a natural flair for, and then to throw your whole heart into doing it. There is a difference between doing something because you are paid to do it and doing something you have passion for.

A guy once shared the story about how his mum convinced him to become a doctor. He gained admission into the university and struggled all through. Medicine became a daunting challenge for him, as he had to change courses in between and eventually left the university without a degree.

Not too long after, he realized that he never had a passion for medicine. It was an idea that was suggested to him. Today, he is a millionaire living his dreams, making people happy. He later discovered his flair for comedy and studied successful comedians, before venturing out to set up his outfit. It’s all about doing what you have passion for and eventually, the money will come.

There is a difference between getting involved in something because of the financial benefits attached, and having a passion for something. The difference is that when you are involved in something purely for the money, it’s easy for you to become discouraged when the stream of income dries off. 

On the other hand, when passion is the prime mover, you keep striving even if you not getting any financial benefits from what you doing. Time is a beautiful rewarder for those who are diligent. After a while, that thing you are passionate about and you’ve become an authority in, people will pay you for it.

Patience is the key. When you patiently pursue what you are passionate about, the financial benefits will eventually follow with time. It may take a year or two, but be patient, and never get discouraged.

I am passionate about writing. I can be on my laptop for hours unending writing on different stuff that just comes to my memory. It is a passion. It is something that gives me joy. Years back, I was not getting a dime for writing. Fortunately, after a while, people got to see samples of my work online and they contacted me via email and mobile to help them with different writing projects.

I started making some extra income from writing. It was absolute fun doing what you love and getting paid for it. It’s like you enjoy yourself and you get additional incentives for just enjoying yourself. Passion is the key. Discover your passion, and other things will eventually fall in place.

Success means different things to different folks

Success is possible to those that believe

Success is one of the often searched words on the internet. A quick search on google and a search for the word “success” will bring up 245,000 search items. The reason why people search for success online is that they desire success. Unfortunately, desire alone is not enough guarantee for you to become successful in life.

Success takes time

Everything in life happens according to our time. Every individual has a specific time for certain things to be accomplished in life. You may look at your friends for example, and keep wondering about the rapid progress they have made in life.

The truth is that everything happens at their own pace. They have their own time and clock and you have yours, so be patient if you desire to become successful in life.

Don’t envy others making progress in life

Jack Ma started Alibaba at age 39. At that age, some of his friends were still struggling to make meaning out of life. Virgin Group was started by Richard Branson when he was 34. That would be considered, a major achievement.

These men achieved success, not because they were looking at their friends and colleagues, but because they intentionally desired success and worked hard towards achieving their goals in life. It all boils down to doing what gives you joy and happiness.

Be happy with little success

Celebrating the little achievements and never getting discouraged is the beginning. Everyone who becomes successful in life started from the very bottom. They never achieved their great accomplishments overnight.

When we are happy with the little success we achieve in life, it opens door to better opportunities. Clinching the bronze medal in the Olympics was a huge achievement for Weightlifter Christine Girard of Canada at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Six years later, Christine became a Gold medalist when Maiya Maneza of Kazakhstan and Svetlana Tsarukaeva of Russia who won Gold and Silver were disqualified for taking banned substances. It may have taken years, but hard work surely pays a huge dividend.

Be consistent and success will show up

Consistency is always synonymous with those who achieve great things in life. No matter how slow the progress may seem, keep moving, and never stop trying. What you consistently pursue and desire will eventually become a reality.

It takes a strong commitment to not only your passion but also your personal life and family life to truly become successful.

Business tips for entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are always in search of innovations and new solutions to help them achieve success in their business. In this article, I will be highlighting some useful tips that entrepreneurs will find very valuable.

Tips #1

If you’re an entrepreneur, Make sure whatever you’re selling is relevant, useful, and be consistent. People don’t buy just the products but they look out for benefits. You don’t start something one day and disappear the very next day.

Tips #2

The formula for a successful business is: do what you love and love what you do. Turn your talent into a business, not just a hobby. For instance, if you can easily motivate others. You turn your passion for motivational speaking into a business. It is something that can create multiple income streams for you if properly channeled! 

Tips #3

Impressing people isn’t worth it. The more you impress, the poorer you become. The poorer you get, the less they respect you. Stop impressing people by using your little money to buy things you can’t afford and start impressing your future by investing the money instead. Entrepreneurs need capital for investment, not to impress people who don’t even care if you exist.

Tips #4

If you want to double your income and create a new stream of income as an entrepreneur, it may not work the first time. I have tried several ideas in the past and the never worked, but it doesn’t mean those ideas were wrong. You cannot lose by taking action, you only lose when you refuse to work on your dreams.

Tips #5

Building a system around your business is one sure way of ensuring uninterrupted income streams. You can start the process by automating as many parts of your business as possible. Having an online presence, for example, allows you to keep your business open 24/7 without further effort on your part. Modern entrepreneurs have leveraged the awesome power of the internet to increase their business spread.

Tips #6

Building a successful business requires focus. Why? Because that’s how you build momentum. As an entrepreneur, you must remain focused on a particular niche. Don’t get easily distracted by what others are doing. So don’t do multiple things at once. Instead, focus on just one thing, and do it in the best possible way.

As the author puts it: “A scattered focus leads to scattered results.” Business is all about patience. 8 years ago, crude oil was the real deal. Today, lots of investment in that sector has diminished. Those who started web-based businesses 8 years ago are more relevant than ever before. It’s all about focus.

Tips #7

There’s nothing wrong in being a salary earner, but there’s a lot of wrongs if you cant create a plan B from your salary.  Think and make the right choice, because as a salary earner, you can get fired tomorrow or your company can be liquidated. Make your plan B source of income a top priority this year!  A plan B that will grow into another huge income source. Most entrepreneurs started as salary earners and diversified into a business of their own.
