What Makes A Successful Home Business Entrepreneur?
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 28th, 2010
Studies have shown that successful entrepreneurs and home business owners possess the following characteristics. Do you?
1. Do you have Self-confidence?
2. Are you Achievement Oriented?
3. Are you a Risk Taker?
So which of these three main characteristics is the most important? Believe it or not, it is self-confidence.
Without self-confidence, nothing else is possible. If you don't believe in your abilities, then the first challenge that arises may knock you off the path to achieving your goals. Here are a few things to keep in mind for maintaining a higher level of self-confidence.
* Positive Thinking
Negative thinking is just not allowed (so stop it right now). You must truly believe that there are no circumstances hard enough to deter you from reaching your goals.
Try the exercise created by French psychotherapist Emile Coue - every morning repeat "Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better." You might be surprised that this simple exercise has been getting results since the early 1900s!
Remember too, that positive thinking can be contagious. When positive thinking spreads, it can open doors to new ideas, customers, friends, etc.
* Persistent Action
Entrepreneurs are people who make decisions, they take action and control their own destinies. They are often motivated by a spirit of independence which leads them to believe that their success depends on raw effort and hard work, not luck.
As Ronald Regan pointed out: Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
Look ahead and see yourself where you want to be, maintain a strong belief in yourself and your skills, stick with it, and never give up. If you can do that, you're already half way there!
We'll leave you with a couple of quotes from Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965):
