Hi, Everyone…


Today we are going to cover something that is near and dear to my heart. People mostly want to succeed at whatever they undertake, at least on the surface.


Under that veneer of good thoughts and wishes they may have, there are things that are undercutting that desire to succeed, and often they may not be able to see that in themselves or in the people around them.


Let me give you an example…


You can take two people from the same background and give them the same resources, blueprints and business plans. One of those people will go on to enjoy massive success, while the other person washes out after a few months or maybe a few years.


So what’s the difference between these two people?


Just this: mindset.


If someone has the right mindset, they can begin with a poor business plan and still win in the end. On the other hand, someone with a poor mindset can begin with the best business plan in the world… and yet still epically fail in the end. Mindset really does make all the difference.


So the question is, do YOU have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur?


Read on to find out if you possess these characteristics…

You’re Willing To Take Risks


This is seemingly a no-brainer, but it is quite an important point for all people who are considering starting a new business or venture. Knowing the risk that you are willing to take is important.


There are going to be days, weeks, maybe even months when you will be at risk when you are building a business. If you are not ready to take the stress and figurative heat, it might be better to not start.


There is foolish risk-taking and there is calculated risk-taking. It pays to know the difference between the two.


I am sure you’re not the type of person to run to Vegas and drop your life savings on one go of the roulette wheel. That would be a dumb move and far too risky.


But if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, then you need to be willing to take some risk. Business success is not guaranteed, no matter how prepared you may think you are.


The good news is that with careful planning and research, you can take calculated risks that are good bets.


You see, even with careful planning, there are no guarantees in the business world. I think you have seen great ideas that people have had for businesses that fail all the time.


Remember that even established businesses can lose market share or fail when something better comes along.


When was the last time you heard someone talk about MySpace or Alta Vista? I rest my case…


So you need to be able to absorb some amount of risk and then push forward even if things don’t turn out exactly the way you planned.


You can and will recover if you have the right mindset and have moved forward in a planned manner that allows for moving on to something else if needed.


Which brings us to the next point…

You See Failures Differently


It can be hard to take failure. Who wants to fail, who starts a business planning to fail? Not many I would wager.


Most of us are average, and as such we will beat ourselves up when we fail. If it’s a stinging failure, a big one, one that costs a lot of money, prestige, or reputation, the average person will quit.


They shy away from any further risk, they decide the plans or business just wasn’t meant to be, and they scrap all the big plans and dreams they may have had.


Successful entrepreneurs are different though – because they don’t see their failures as failures – instead, they see them as lessons.


Let’s look at one very successful entrepreneur: Thomas Edison. Did you know that he tried to create a light bulb a thousand ad more different ways? He=is attitude was that the experiments were lessons, not failures. He learned a lot about how not to create a light bulb.


Every time that he tried and failed to create the light bulb, he figured instead that he was one step closer to success. How hard is that to persevere when you have had thousands of failures? Edison did it…


So remember that it is how you look at your failures that counts – see them as lessons and learn from them, then just like Edison, with each failure you will be one step closer to success…

You’re Tenacious


This is a big word, but do not worry, it is not as hard a concept to grasp as you might think. Do you remember learning to ride a bicycle or drive a car?


There was nothing that was going to stop you no matter how many times you may have fallen off that bicycle or how bad the driver instructor told you that you were as a driver.


This same attitude holds true with entrepreneurs. The successful ones have this characteristic. They don’t give up very easily. Again this links with the Edison example – in spite of “failing” thousands of times, he didn’t give up.

He stuck to his convictions and was willing to work through to reach success.


I recommend that you pick up the biographies of some of your favorite entrepreneurs…Have a read about them. You’ll find out that all has this trait of not quitting. Most of them did not have a road to success that was always smooth.


For most, there were obstacles, setbacks, and many problems. Yet again, the true entrepreneur keeps going – and that’s what most did.


You’ll need to do that too, no matter what life throws your way…Stick to it and never quit until you succeed.

You Make Data-Driven Decisions


There are ways to mitigate risk (make your undertaking less risky) too that you need to tap into…


Everything the entrepreneur does is not based on a gut feeling. Sure, there are successful entrepreneurs on the planet that have made decisions based on their gut feeling. These are legendary (but not that often used).


The key takeaway is that successful entrepreneurs make decisions based on data as opposed to gut feelings whenever possible. This leaves emotion out of the decision-making process and gets you to success faster.


The point is with this is to gather data, do your homework, and determine what is most likely to work before starting and as you progress with your plans. Don’t make decisions like you are throwing darts at a dartboard, hoping for the best.


Instead, you do your research, test, analyze the data, decide on possible courses of action, THEN make a decision. Remember that it may not be the exact right decision, but taking a calculated risk is better than blindly guessing and you can adjust your angle as may be indicated by outcomes.


Now we are at the decision point for you…Let’s summarize and see how we might be able to help you on your way to success using some special training that we have prepared just for you.

Risk is there for any undertaking.


When you believe in something be prepared for people that are going to laugh at you and what you are trying to do.

The BIG Question is, will you keep going when this happens?


Can you face the fear you may have and continue on anyway?


Are you able to block out any negativity that may rear its head either within you are outside from others keep your eye on your goal and moving forward?

  1. Success is the result of a proper mindset. The proper mindset in business consists of taking CALCULATED risks based on proper research, planning, and knowledge. Accept that failure is a natural part of business and even life and look at failure as an opportunity to learn and improve. Make decisions based on accurate information not on feelings. Be tenacious (that is a big word but I think it sums up your point there very well) when facing challenges. This is another great post and I have bookmarked this one as well. Thank you

    1. Hello Again, Lee…

      Glad to see that you decided to hang around and have a look at a second article and course that we are offering (we have a total of 10 in this series, and other training outside of these too). Success is not a guaranteed thing, but there are certain attributes and attitudes that can increase your chances of succeeding.

      The SMART Training – Success Upgrade Club addresses these attributes and adds in strategies to use them to grow your business faster and, well, smarter. The feedback has been outstanding so far from the beta testers and as we get more we are adding materials that will help even more.

  2. I totally agree with you on this. The mental makeup of an individual can affect his/her experiences in life. Now, let me bring into bearing, the profound effect this has on an entrepreneur. I like the example you used to further illustrate your point.

    It reminds me of a story I came across not very long ago about two brothers who were raised by a drunk father. After many years, one of them turned out exactly like their father while the other turned out to be successful. 

    Whenever either of them is asked how they turned out the way they did, their answer is exactly the same – “I became this way because of my drunk father”. They had the same experiences but because of the difference in their mindset, they had different outcomes.

    Great post.

    1. Hello, Rhain…

      Wow, that example is perfect for the point I was trying to convey in the article. This really is true, we hold our destiny in our hands, and in spite of the challenges we may face in life, we can choose how to handle them. If you have the right mindset, you can succeed.

      This is where our SMART Training – Success Upgrade Club comes into play. It can help to determine actions to take to get the mindset to have success and it can also help to commiserate with others that are also exploring the best way to get the mindset in place for that to happen, 

      The basic course is video-based (10 modules) but as a teacher for many years, I know that more touches are helpful to really have the information be absorbed and for change to happen. That is why we added more elements to the training.

      We have a private channel and platform where members of the course can trade ideas, tips, problems and solutions for the mindset issue. On top of that, we provide weekly webinars that are recorded and archived for later viewing as may be desired. Lastly, we provide additional resource materials that members can use to help them in their journey. 

      It is in creating a community where we feel that the true long-term value lies in this course and in all the others that we offer (we are adding more on a regular basis too). Much like some of the major platforms out there for people wanting to build their business, this is the spice that sets us apart.

      Cheers and thanks for some great feedback!

  3. I understand that in order to succeed as an entrepreneur especially in online business, we have to develop those traits you mentioned here. I’ve been doing them in my online business for months now and it seems I am still far from my goals. With the success level you have achieved, how many more months should I wait before I finally tell myself it’s not for me and I have to move on to other projects?

    1. Hello, Gomer…

      Never give up is my advice. Obviously, if over time you see that something is not working, there comes a point when you have to change what you are doing to find something that is working. But moving on means perhaps approaching things with a slightly different angle.

      This is where the power our course SMART Training – Success Upgrade Club comes in. You get a set of 10 modules of video training, a support platform and channel for the course (where you can get ideas, advice, tips, and more from other members) and weekly support webinars that are archived for later viewing.

      We also add in some other materials that will help you define where you are and where you want to go, and this will help you develop a plan to get there, plus support you along the journey. So fare we have had a very positive amount of feedback from beta users.

      Best of luck and do not give up!

  4. Hello there,thanks for this awesome article it would be of great be of great help to the public asit has been of help to have indeed done a great job on this as all this courses and book would really help one out in following up this online business.

    1. Hello, Feji ben…

      The SMART training course Success Upgrade Club has been designed to help all entrepreneurs and the additional materials are quite useful as well. So far the beta testers have given us fantastic feedback and we have made more resources available as a result.

      We are quite confident that this course will help marketers have more success with their business. Thanks for the positive comments. Your enthusiasm comes through in your comment. Perhaps you would like to have a look at the training sales page to learn more. I am sure it would help you as well.
