We have enlisted a few signs that read “failure” in block letters:
Feelings Matter More Than They Should To You
If you take a look at Steve Jobs and Bill Gates you will see that they aren’t really loved. They are respected, though. They are admired and looked up to. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you must be able to make decisions without worrying about what the other person might feel. At some point you have to ignore the attitudes and make a few things happen.
You Became An Entrepreneur Because You Want To Be Super Rich
Yes, it is true that entrepreneurship can make you wealthy but if you start a business with that sole goal in mind, you probably won’t get there. Entrepreneurship comes with plenty of challenges, sweat, and tears. It is after you go through all this that you’ll see wealth. You should be prepared for the journey first.
Challenges Are Not Your Thing
Small and medium enterprises come with numerous obstacles. Through your course of business planning you will be challenged every now and then. If being challenged doesn’t go down well for you, you will not be successful. You cannot firmly hold on to your ideas and expect them work. If they are flawed, you should be able to accept it and look for ways to amend them. That is why successful entrepreneurs do.
Sleep Trumps Your Passion For Entrepreneurship
Did you know that most owners of small and medium enterprises sleep for only four hours during weekdays? The same holds true for the leaders of successful and large enterprises as well. In order to increase productivity and stay ahead, you need to be highly committed to what you do and that includes letting go your beloved sleep at times. Most of your energy and time should go into working and ensuring that you are doing things right.
Do you see any of these signs in yourself? If yes, it is time to change.
Not all leaders of small and medium enterprises are successful and this can be due to various reasons. Wrong motivation, no motivation, money-mindedness, and not accepting being challenged are some of them. These are all signs of failure and if you are guilty of any of them, you should work to correct them.
