Developing a Potential Entrepreneurial Mindset
Having an entrepreneurial mindset is not an issue; I guess the foundation should be about having a good understanding of who entrepreneurs are and what entrepreneurship is.
Entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes, some with amazing inventions and impeccable innovations others with tweaked ideas or variations on existing inventions as the case may be.
Entrepreneurs are everything from a Doctor, Lawyer, Barber, Cobbler etc. A few get into entrepreneurship accidentally after losing their job and some others have decided to follow their passion, build a system around it and garner profit through that means, some others don’t want to do corporate anymore, they want to be their own boss and dictate the way their day turns out.
Generally speaking, many entrepreneurs start small with little or no capital and some others get supports from Angel Investors, Venture Capitalist even before they launch their business.
The good news is that anyone can be an entrepreneur, I mean someone who has discovered a lacuna in the society and has decided to bring up an innovative idea to bridge this gap, anyone! From a school-drop-out to a maverick manager, all that is of paramount importance is passion, determination, networking and more work.
Please note that, you do not need to go through a business school, read the best books and blogs to succeed in business even though they are important, you need to invest in perspiration, get to work, take action, learn on the job, make your mistakes, learn fast, brace up and win.
Always endeavour to do something new or tackle something old, sometimes it might be difficult to introduce a novel idea but however difficult, it could be best to tweak an existing innovation and you smile to the bank as a result.
Do you yourself the pleasure of chasing a passion rather than cash. Let the love of what you do consume you because wanting to be rich doesn’t guarantee wealth.
Ask the right questions today and always. Make Google your best companion, heap quality mentors around you and when things seem difficult, always seek out alternatives. You cannot be outdated that way.
Understand that business is all about people and relationships so Network as if your life is dependent on it. Forge social connections with people.
Broaden your perspective, never be limited in any way, get inspiration from everything you do, everyone you speak to and anything you engage with, expand your scope by every means possible.
This is just the kind of mindset that celebrated Entrepreneurs embrace and you would do yourself the pleasure of personalising this article such that it permeates through your heart and mind, the resultant effect is such that, you and your conceived idea inevitably grows and attain the height of greatness.
