I have had the opportunity to speak with a number of high income earners in my industry about how they work and what has made them successful. With every single person I interviewed, there were common qualities and things they did that set them apart from others.
First of all, they all have an amazing work ethic. This means they know how to discipline themselves to stay on task. And, if they get sidetracked, they know how to get back to it. The discipline they possess stems from their desire to achieve their dreams. They know what they want and exactly what they need to do right now to make it happen for the future. They put themselves in the driver’s seat!
Entrepreneurs may not want to pick up the phone to call another prospect or do another follow-up call, but they do it anyways. The word, procrastination is not in their vocabulary, instead, they just do it ‘right now’. They experience fear and doubt like anyone else, but they break through it and don’t let it take over. They don’t give up on their dreams just because they came across adversity somewhere in their day or week. They have to be tough on themselves and sometimes be their own worst boss, telling them what to do 🙂
Entrepreneurs have the great quality of patience, especially when it comes to building teams. They know how to train new team members who are experiencing the world of entrepreneurship for the first time. They understand, that these emerging leaders need to develop their vision and build their confidence up. Entrepreneurs know as leaders, their job is to coach and mentor them along the road to success.
One of the things I found most interesting about entrepreneurs who stay on-task, is how remarkably calm they are about their achievements. This brings along the question, of who mentors Entrepreneurs? They regularly hang out with associates who understand their world and often seek mentorship by those who have come before them. They are students as much as they are teachers.
For anyone looking to venture into the exciting world of entrepreneurship, know that, it is not complicated, nor is it difficult. It’s simply, the journey of small steps. So set your goals, immerse yourself into learning about your product or service quickly and make sure to be around people who will support you and your vision.
