The Entrepreneurial Perspective
Entrepreneurs are a unique breed of people. While some people sit and fantasize about the glamor of being their own boss and creating their own business, those in the thick of business ownership understand that even considering all its rewards, entrepreneurship is hugely complicated, never easy, and requires intestinal fortitude.
The world’s most successful entrepreneurs typically didn’t impulsively quit their jobs to chase a get-rich-quick idea. However, I bet they are the ones with a set of perspectives and values that allow them to leap over tall buildings in a single bound — if not that, then run a successful business and accomplish their goals.
1. A positive viewpoint. We’ve all heard the phrase is the glass half full or half empty? Your perspective is absolutely critical in determining your level of success as an entrepreneur. Your perspective helps you view challenges as opportunities, setbacks as a setup, and roadblocks as a redirection to greater.
2. Perfection is for paper. You will kill your vision, and your path forward if you insist on perfection existing in your everyday world. More times than not, things will go wrong and your sense of perfection will be challenged. A need for perfection will keep you stuck or stunt your progress.
3. Learn from mistakes. You will mess up! Come on — repeat after me, I will mess up. Mistakes will happen – its a natural course of life in every area, environment, and aspect. Establish this early on and put in place a process for dealing with mistakes. Review them, learn from them, and then MOVE ON!
4. Its not magic – its WORK! The super-rich, super great entrepreneurs that you know didn’t get their by waving a magical wand and suddenly appearing in the land of wealth and plenty. Many were terminated from jobs, lost major contracts, lived on beans and Kool-Aid, and went through years of barely making it. The best ideas, the best skills, require patience, resilience, perseverance, and tenacity. What you work — will work for you!
