In this blog, I tell you some secrets about becoming an entrepreneur, and what life looks like for those people, but before any detail about that, what is an entrepreneur?
Describe an entrepreneur or entrepreneurial definition: Someone with an idea starts a business despite all risk and failure. Entrepreneurship is the creation or extraction of value. Someone becomes an entrepreneur when he/she have the ability to see beyond others’ vision and can create an opportunity base on a crisis or any situation.
While some entrepreneurs hold these traits, they rarely define the characteristics of every successful entrepreneur. Not everyone is born with a drive to change the world. In fact, many successful entrepreneurs today are people who you may have underestimated in high school or college. Source
A living example of this is one of the richest men in America “Bill Gates who said, “If I had a dollar for every time someone made fun of me in high school-oh, wait. I do!”
Most of the time when someone doing business, others see them as an entrepreneur but in reality, you don’t have to create anything to be a businessman, but an entrepreneur is someone who got an idea creates something new and works on the idea until successful.
Most Entrepreneurs don’t stay in one business opportunity but create grow and start over, again and again, because some enjoy creating and taking advantage of new opportunities. That’s how entrepreneurs are creating wealth, Also most of them are influencers, motivators, coaches, etc
It is very hard to be an entrepreneur because it required a lot of knowledge, but the paid off is huge, the lifestyle is awesome, and money never is a problem for an entrepreneur. They have more money than families.
Qualities of a good entrepreneur.
When it comes to qualities of an entrepreneur, there are a lot of them, no one can dare say or give a quality that best describes one. Each individual depending on the area that person evolving can develop different qualities and skills.
Business is an art but not everyone knows how to master this art. Some people have the inborn quality to be successful in business while some others have to work hard to develop those qualities. Below I will list some qualities most of them have in common.
Top five qualities of an entrepreneur
Remember those are considered as skillset, that most people already have but need to be developed or work on, learn more about skills that need to be developed and have an idea on how to do that, read the 14 secrets of a self-made millionaire.
1. Have a competitive spirit, entrepreneurial spirit.
Most of them have an entrepreneurial spirit, they don’t focus too much on the adversary, they learn how to deal with their competitors by leveraging them to grow, and develop a great relationship with them.
Your competitors in most cases are not your enemy, being in a competitive market will help get motivated more and force you to improve every day, because to beat the competitor you have to be more equipped than them.
Most businesses in the world corporate with others even if they are in the same niche, they work together, have dinner and talk about how they can dominate the market more.
2. Not afraid of failure
Most people never start because all they think about is if they fail how other people will react. Most entrepreneurs don’t really have time to think about others. Most of them experience loneliness in the beginning, when you have the vision because it is your vision it might take years for others to understand your ideas.
You will get discouraged by others sometimes, and you will be left alone in the world with no friends and sometimes no family.
Failure is not a bad thing when starting working on a new idea or opportunity, when someone is doing business, it doesn’t matter how long you spend studying, you will make a lot of mistakes and fail miserably. The difference between an entrepreneur and regular folk, failure motivates an entrepreneur to learn how to make it right, while regular folk quit when they fail.
3. Have vision “an eye for niches or gaps in the market”
I was listening to Arnold Schwarzenegger, he was talking about his life, how he started and quote this ” when you don’t have a vision you drift around and never end up anywhere” and continued “75% of people hate their job in America, the majority don’t like what they’re doing, only a quarter love what they doing and only 1% make it to the top”.
Most entrepreneurs’ vision is to make it to the top 1%, that’s why even people see them like crazy but they still working their butt off to succeed. It is necessary to list a few of them that started with nothing and make it to the top.
If you read their story it was not easy for none of them, but their drives and motivations keep their focus on their end goal.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger
- Jeff Bezos
- Elon musk
- Mark Zuckerberg
- etc, And the list is long
4. Open for new opportunities
A good entrepreneur always looks around to see what is not working and fix it. Also, they always look around and seek new opportunities and what can make their brand larger. Read all of those influencers listed above and read their story, Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, purchased Instagram and WhatsApp, etc.
Entrepreneurs don’t worry about money, it is not about the money but, it is about the brand, who is the bigger guy in the market, who is dominating, and creating legacies, leave their Name behind when they’re gone.
5. Self motivated.
If anyone is looking for someone to motivate you, that means entrepreneurship is not for you, because an entrepreneur gets motivated by their vision, they are self-motivated.
What can keep you motivated is your why, why are you doing this? I know a lot of people with great vision but with no drive, they started a business and don’t know what they are working for. The reason behind what you are doing is what going to keep you motivated.
Remember those qualities can be different for each person, there is no one fit all. Each person has their own or can develop their own quality best on where there are and what they’re trying to achieve. The best way to know how to develop those skills is to have someone that can hold your hand and coach you on everything you need to know about how to become an entrepreneur.
