Characteristics of an Entrepreneur

Characteristics of an Entrepreneur and Creating Success

Here are some great tips to get you started. Look for mentors that are already successful, who have had their own failures and have made a comeback to create success. Following successful mentors and associating with positive people is key to your journey in building characteristics of an entrepreneur.

You will always have setbacks on your journey; this is where experienced mentors can help you set a different approach and get your mind set off the things you do not want.

Characteristics of an Entrepreneur and Meditation

A form of meditation is very powerful. Do not miss this point as most people say meditation is not for them. You will be surprised what power there is in a relaxed state of mind. The power is endless just like the universe.

Here is a great quote -- "I am one with the universe and it is one with me. I am of it, with in it, and exist as a shining spark in a firmament of divine goodness," -- from a book I read, What to Say When You Talk to Yourself by Shad Helmstetter.

I have a great story to share with you that can help you develop characteristics of an entrepreneur and help you on your journey to create success. I believe whatever business you do as an entrepreneur you will have days where you want to quit and throw in the towel.

Belief and Persistence Builds Characteristics of an Entrepreneur

I read an article about a piano player who wanted to play as a concert pianist. In the beginning he did not play well at all, but he practiced every day and was determined to get better.

He bought the necessary books and kept practicing even though he "sucked" in the beginning of his journey. But in his own mind he had the desire to succeed and not to quit.

All success comes from some form of "grind," so keep doing what you are doing, believe you will get better and you will find results.

And, yes, now this pianist plays in front of 20,000 people, and he did so by believing and practicing his craft day in and day out until he mastered it.

Characteristics of an Entrepreneur -- Skateboarder

What about the skateboarder in the park? I have heard that some of these kids practice one trick 400 times to get it perfect. Do not quit at your first defeat; this is where you learn all those valuable lessons. Keep going. This is just part of the journey to success and part of building characteristics of an entrepreneur.

There are no shortcuts to creating success, besides hard work and determination. I work from home, and I have had my ups and downs, but I do what is necessary every day to get better and reach great success.

Do not quit on your dream. Keep moving forward and your struggles will build your character and help others to succeed when you tell them your story.
