Before a doctor diagnoses a specific disease, the patient must undergo a series of labs and tests. The doctor has to know the history of the patient and how their lifestyle affected their current health issue. As results come in, that would be an indication of the specific drugs and therapies for maintenance the doctor must give, if necessary. This will eventually contribute to the level of optimum health for that individual. If all else fails, the process will be repeated again.
Similar to a doctor, an entrepreneur’s responsibility would be pretty much the same. It’s just that. An entrepreneur should see their customer as their patient and what they must have to survive a present predicament or a need. He/she must follow certain steps before doing anything irrational that could contribute to the downfall of the business. An entrepreneur must possess certain characteristics. Lacking any of of these, would probably doom them to fail.
Entrepreneurship is collectively defined as exhibiting one’s vision, taking action, and pursuing that vision as a goal to be achieved in life as service to reality. In the meaningless definition, it’s getting your butt off of that couch and doing something rather than fulfilling your life’s destiny of being a couch potato. And hustling like you have nothing to eat!
So, you think you’re ready to take the plunge of becoming an Entrepreneur? Let’s see…
Listed below are some of the distinct characteristics an entrepreneur should have:
• Optimism – is foreseeing things in a positive way notwithstanding any circumstances that may hinder progress. The assertiveness of an individual depends on their knowledge of how to handle a difficult situation.
• Creativity – is thinking outside the box. Expanding one’s mind of what is beyond the ordinary through fine research and collection of data.
• Stability – either physical, mental, social or emotional, a leader must possess a stable life which means he could handle tough situations during tough times
• Charismatic – intelligence of communicating with different walks of life. Who says a charming man is less than an intelligent one? A good entrepreneur must have the certain magic glistening in their eyes and could convey enchanting words to get hold of that convincing power no one dares to resist.
• Risk-taker – as someone beginning to pursue their own dream, one should be stern and must have the guts and the balls to take the big leap of plunging into their own doom or success. One should not be afraid of taking chances when opportunity strikes.
• Energetic – willing to do whatever it takes to reach to the finish line. Your drive must always be at its highest level. Being an entrepreneur makes you work overtime. Your enthusiasm must prevail the next best thing.
• Time bound – like a written report in a newspaper, an entrepreneur must be on the top of every innovation. By looking at our past, we could predict our own future.
Small businesses, in time, would turn out big if the scope of management exceeds what is expected. So it is necessary for a beginner to be positive about their endeavors. One must be very observant of what their environment lacks and needs. They should have sturdy shoulders to put on extra weight of carrying a responsibility that could change his or her life.
One’s greatest failure is sticking with the mentality of being conventional. This would be one of an entrepreneur’s greatest downfalls. Think big. Act. Make your business dreams come true.
I hope this post helps shed some light on taking the plunge!
