The Key Ingredients To Success
"The ship in the harbor is safe but that isn’t what they were built for"- John A. Shedd
A successful entrepreneur has a compelling vision and a sense of clarity about what they want to achieve. Their vision usually involves creating something bigger and more enduring than themselves.
It is this sense of purpose, combined with a big picture strategy, that inspires them to keep going. Those who achieve success have a positive attitude to risk and failure and see both as a natural part of the process of growing a business. They realise that the degree to which they will succeed will largely depend on the degree to which they are willing to fail. In their eyes there are no failures - only valuable feedback.
The key elements to successful entrepreneurship are...
3. "Big Picture" thinking
4. A willingness to fail
5. A readiness to grow The most successful people are the ones that do the work, take messy action, start before it's perfect, leap before they're ready and roll with the punches as they come.
