7 Common Traits of Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship. That’s a word that is being thrown around a lot lately. But what is it actually ?

According to Wikipedia :

Entrepreneurship has traditionally been defined as the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which typically begins as a small business, such as a startup company, offering a product, process or service for sale or hire. ”

So an entrepreneur is simply someone who starts a business no matter how small it may be.

However, it does take a lot of organization and self-discipline — and an idea that solves a problem usually — to become one.

So what do most successful entrepreneurs have in common ?

1. Waking up early

Apparently most of them do which is easily understandable since I personally find that you get a lot more done in a day when you actually wake up early.

2. Exercising

Mens sana in corpore sano ” which means “ a healthy mind in a healthy body ” — just in case you don’t understand Latin. Exercising actually is relaxing and helps you have a clear mind. That’s more room for your inspiration to work its magic !

3. A strict schedule

The best way to do everything you need to do — and since success needs hard work — is to have and stick — at least most of the time — to a strict schedule.

4. A different mindset

When you’re an entrepreneur, failure — which I have experienced here — is just a way of learning. You fail because you’ve made mistakes so you try again differently. That’s PERSEVERANCE !

5. No reluctance to change

When something doesn’t work, it sometimes means that change is necessary. Change is good for progress.

6. Love for what they do

When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. That’s good for motivation and it enables you to really work hard on your projects.

7. Goals

You need to know where you’re going. You should stay open to change but knowing where you’re going — even if you don’t really know how to get there — is important to keep you motivated.
