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…

As always, I like to place a Table of Contents for readers to quickly see what points are covered in the article and be able to navigate to the ones that are of most interest. Please do check out the entire article though, lots of gold nuggets here for you!
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…
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.
