3 Characteristics All Successful Entrepreneurs Share

Have you ever asked yourself what most successful entrepreneurs have, besides wealth, that you don’t have? What do these folks do or how do they act that helps them to be more successful than others in their field? Possessing qualities such as being willing to work and taking on each day with a high level of energy is a terrific start and something every entrepreneur must embrace but there is more! It is there attitude and how they approach their work that tends to set them apart from others and puts them on track to the success they achieve!

Let’s have a look at 3 characteristics most entrepreneurs need to have in order to be more successful than those against whom they compete!


No telling what door opportunity will come knocking on so be ready, it may involve ‘radical’ changes that should NOT be seen as barriers! Radical lifestyle changes such as relocation may be a consideration, but in today’s already ‘mobile’ society it is not something to be concerned with! The old rule applies here that when opportunity knocks, be ready to respond because it may not come knocking again!

Emphasize Your Strengths

Weaknesses only prove you to be vulnerable and lacking but emphasizing what you’re best at will make you more competitive! Nobody wants your ‘worst’ effort nor do they need to ‘linger’ on what you ‘can’t’ deliver but rather let your strengths be the primary focus of your attention! Do what you can and do it well leaving the things you’re not too good at for others to complete! In terms of productivity, you will definitely be more successful by following this strategy!

For more about why you need to ‘work to your strengths’ if being productive and successful is your ultimate goal, enjoy the following short video!


Respect Your Financial Resources

Identifying and monitoring the use of any financial resources that you have and will be using is crucial! Maintaining a positive state of mind and being willing to work is all well and good for staying motivated and productive but NOT when you’re making serious financial decisions with your own money! The best advice here is to avoid using any of your own resources’ if at all possible, unless absolutely necessary!

Successful entrepreneurs obviously have an intense sense of motivation giving them a high level of energy but that is NOT the only reason they succeed! They must be willing to work, and not just when they feel like it, to be more successful, but it is how they apply their energy and focus that sets them apart! As we discussed above here today entrepreneurs who achieve their goals do so by being open to opportunities, fiscally responsible with their resources and above all they must know their strengths! These characteristics all tend to call for a bit of discipline, self-awareness and of course possessing an openness or acceptance to change with a keen eye out for any new and promising opportunities! As mentioned earlier, being willing to work will always give you a edge over your competitors however it is how you focus your energies and efforts that give you the most success!

What Keeps Holding You Back From a Better Life?

What Keeps Holding You Back From a Better Life?

Do you aspire to a better life yet something keeps holding you back from taking the necessary steps to make this happen! You may want to build your own business, further your education or make other improvements that will enhance your life but yet you’re still reluctant to do what it takes to make things happen that will transform your aspirations into your reality? Watching life pass you by and seeing others enjoy the same things you want for yourself is like living in a silent hell! This is especially true when you get so damn entrenched in your comfort zone that even if you posses the ability to change things for the better, you still retreat back into the same life you so much want to change and/or escape! In this way you seem to be sabotaging not only your chances of success but also a life-style that will bring you joy and contentment! Well you’re not alone however if you don’t take measures to make things happen that will bring about the changes you seek or aspire to, you run the risk of watching life pass you by!

We all have our reasons for putting things off or NOT making the changes we need to make, even when capable of doing so, which brings us to this ‘wake up call’ in the following brief video featuring Amy Schmittauer!


As Amy so politely put it in the above video, you need to get off your ass and put aside any issues or reasons that are holding you back from improving your life! That’s right, no matter what may be keeping you from taking action on your dreams or aspirations, it is up to you to make things happen otherwise your dreams will remain just that, dreams! Your own reluctance to take action may result from certain fears such as the fear of success, failure or even the unknown, and this is why you may tend to retreat back into your comfort zone which ironically is the same situation your trying to escape! One thing is for certain however, unless you take that first step, be it successful or not, if you don’t try to make things happen to improve your life, nothing will change other than a growing regret that you never even tried in the first place! Just something to think about and take action on if you are so inclined…
