Traits of an Entrepreneur.

EntrepreneurWe can get caught up in traits, behaviors and miss the true essence of a person. This is a great post on traits of an entrepreneur and also someone who is living their life to the fullest. Richard Branson

What I want to show is that we are all individuals, and we come at every single thing in life in a completely unique way. So no matter what, trying to emulate traits, is actually not being true to yourself, and demotivates you.

I’ve found through dealing with a number of entrepreneurs that effective personality traits develop as desire for the business grows. The desire to create an effective mind-set and routines grows in line with the business.

So the key personality trait that I would suggest developing is clarity of vision. see how your business can work get out there and start asking questions.

However, there is an aspect of this, that has to be kept in mind. It is to develop clarity of vision with a focus on improving ones self to achieve that goal.

Just like running a marathon you can not go straight to running 42 kilometers you have to grow but by doing your research each day and doing your bit each day you learn about yourself and as part of that you grow in every aspect. you get more organized to run in the morning you learn about eating better. all the traits develop as you move towards the goal.Entrepreneur calm

Let me ask you do you think Donald Trump and Richard Branson where born with all these skills, or did they learn them as they went along. Each of them learned personality traits from their parents. How many rags to riches stories have you heard, from people who had no parents. What happened is, that they had a goal and developed the traits along the way.

Goals come before traits so develop your goals and become the person who can achieve them.

What are your goals,  and who do you have to become to get there?

Routines to wins.

Consistent wins

Every successful entrepreneur has routines, these morning routines or rituals gear your brain up for the day a head and keep you focused on what is most important. some people meditate others do vision boards but every successful person has some sort of morning routine.

But routine is boring.

I’ve been struggling with morning routines for a long time now. I do them, but they are routine. They seem long and drawn out and boring. I have to do this sort of mentality, But they do get me in the right frame of mind and focused

Consistent wins
Daily wins.

This morning I flipped it around, I started calling them morning wins, because you are winning, you’re beating that voice in your head, that holds you back. What better way to start a day than by setting your standards and winning.

First win, is beating the snooze, get up before the first one goes off. Easy and motivating to get up. I say to myself over and over “I make it happen” Whatever it is Life, Fun, and Goals? If it’s to be, it’s up to me.

Second win, do my push-ups and sit-ups. This gets you pumped and awake (naturally).

Third win, Meditation clears my mind for the day ahead.

The most important thing is to celebrate them. Log them in your book and see the fruits of your wins, write down how you feel and how you are thinking.

So set daily wins,

Daily wins.

not routines.

What is an entrepreneur?

To me an entrepreneur represents someone who is innovative, ambitious and goes for what he / she wants. But I think it goes much deeper.

As many great speaker have said before, there are two drivers in life, Pain and Pleasure.

I believe that you can operate out of fear and operate out of love (pain and pleasure).

I believe that entrepreneurs operate out of love. Love to create and make the world a better place.

The fear mentality is “I haven’t got enough” and they consume, this is what most people call greed, but greed is actually fear of lack (not surviving) or not being good enough (ego)I-love-entrepreneurship

People who operate out of love are focused on building businesses that make the world a better place, either for the people or the planet.

We have all heard about the law of attraction and we have all heard this statement what goes around comes around, this is what Karma is. When you operate out of fear you may make money but you will be unhappy. Whereas you operate out of love you will make money and you will be happy.

So to me an entrepreneur is someone who operates out of love. They love their product they love what they do, they love helping people, and they love being of benefit to the world.

By loving what they do they become attractive, full of energy and life. By loving what they do they attract the right people to them and spread positivity to the world, and the world responds in kind, by helping their business grow.

Have you met people like this? I’m sure you have. Do you want some of that action?

Spend months, or years finding out what you love, then do it, and do it to the best of your ability. Make a decision now to love your life.

Best of luck.

 

Simple questions to change your life.

Anthony Robbins is often heard stating “if you want a better result, ask a better question”.

Our lives are driven by questions. Driven is the important word there. If we frieddon’t ask questions, how can we get what we want?

Often we hear ourselves asking “what do I want” but this is often met with a shrug and a “I dunno”.

So let us look at this another way because “what do I want?” is too vague and it’s also looking for one thing. I want lots of things, so the question instantly causes confusion.

How about asking what “would I like”? It has a much more playful feeling, and isn’t that the feeling you want out of life.

What would happen if you made a huge list of all the things you’d like in your life.

  1. A cool house / apartment
  2. A sweet car (Range Rover for me please)
  3. A cool relationship.
  4. Great friends.
  5. So on and so on.

Now that you have a huge list, the bigger the better, (because we are here to live life to the fullest). Let’s ask another question… what do i want first? Then another question… what do i want to do to make that happen? And the most important question what do I have to improve, in me,images to make that happen?

As you can see by improving the question you get a better result.

How are you going to have more fun today?

What do you want more? To stay in bed another hour or to have an epic life.

I look forward to reading your questions.

Thank you.
