It takes a certain type of person to succeed as an entrepreneur and in my opinion, Htet Tayza readers, these are the top five personality traits you need to become a success!
Making It As an Entrepreneur Isn’t Easy!
Making it as an entrepreneur is no easy job. All you have at the start of your journey is a killer idea and yourself. There are a thousand obstacles on the journey to success and you have to get past each one if you ever hope to make it.
That’s why it takes a certain type of person to become an entrepreneur. Not necessarily a born genius or a perennial overachiever, but someone who stands out from the crowd.
The Top Five from Htet Tayza
Saying that, I’ve often found that there are certain personality traits that really come in handy on the road to success, and these are the top five:
1) Self Confidence: At the end of the day you are asking people to take a chance on you. If you don’t even believe in yourself, and your ability to make a hell of a lot of money, how can you expect other people to?
2) Resilience: You are going to get knocked back. There’ll be thousand no’s before that life changing yes, but if you are not resilient, and if you don’t bounce back, you won’t survive long enough to reach that all important yes.
3) Passion: This isn’t a 9-5 desk job. You are creating a business and doing it half-heartedly just isn’t going to cut it. If you’re not even passionate about your own product, how can you ever expect a potential consumer to be?
4) Flexibility: You may start out with a fantastic idea, but that doesn’t mean it’ll translate into all important profit. Change is a natural part of business and if you can’t accept that your idea could benefit from the wisdom and experience of other people, then you are destined to fail.
5) Vision: You need to know where you are going. It’s not enough to come up with a world-changing idea – you need to know just how it’ll change the world!
The point I really wanted to make here is that anyone can become an entrepreneur. These aren’t traits you are born with, they are personality traits you develop through a heady mix of life experience, and belief in the profitability of your entrepreneurial venture.
