“People often ask me how I became a successful entrepreneur? Those same people often want to know what personality traits are inherent in entrepreneurs who are successful. Okay folks I will let you in on a little secret; ENTREPRENEURS ARE CREATED NOT BORN!
I began my journey in the internet marketing business with a very limited knowledge of the internet. In fact, I had never used the internet for anything more than sending an occasional email. I did encounter frustrating obstacles and at times giving up seemed plausible. Within those fleeting moments, I realized that there are three attributes that will sustain an entrepreneur as they struggle to reach their goals. I have learned to develop and perfect these qualities because with them I become invincible. These are the key ingredients to your recipe for success!
Ever heard of a self fulfilling prophecy? You have to believe in yourself! If you truly believe that you can achieve your dreams then you will. If you surround yourself with positive things then you are creating the environment for success.
When things get difficult you can either give up or make a conscious decision to keep trying. It is the nothing ventured, nothing gained mentality that drives success! You have to constantly re-evaluate your goals and modify your plan of attack to fit them accordingly. Determination is a defining factor in EVERY entrepreneur!
No matter how optimistic or persistent you are some people will not be open to your vision. Rejection is a natural part of life. That should not impede the pursuit of your dream. I look at rejection as a learning process. What valuable information can I take away from this situation that will help me in the future?
The only person who can absolutely defeat you is yourself! All the others are only temporary set backs. So what are you waiting for? It is your turn to seize your dreams!”
