An individual falls in any of the two categories. First, he is too successful and achieved all the greatest things in life and second, he is struggling to make ends meet. One lives the life to the fullest and one survives his life. If you fall into category one, congratulations! You are a successful entrepreneur and an achiever and if you fall under the second category, this blog will give you some much-needed reality checks and the approach with which all of the successful people work to attain their goals.
What makes an entrepreneur Standout from the Crowd?
Endless reasons can be given and facts are shown to answer this specific question. Any successful person on this Earth works with the same mindset and thought the process that a common person doesn’t have. They work with certain principles and facts that allow them to achieve things the commoners struggle for all their lives. Their passion, craziness, determination and will to fulfill their dreams is so strong that no obstacle, challenge or problem stops them from reaching their goals.
Approach with which an entrepreneur works?
Every successful person achieves his goals twice: once in his mind and then in reality. They are dreamers and achievers of the same. They don’t struggle with challenges coming their way, but instead, play with them which makes their journey worth the result! Their approach is clear: dream, plan, work and achieve. If you don’t have a dream, you don’t have any driving force that pushes you to work hard and level up your standards of living, the problem that lies in 97% of the population on Earth.
What mindset do they work with?
An entrepreneur always thinks of leveraging time and building a system that works for them. They work with a ‘system-centric approach’ and hence are able to reach their aim by leveraging time and making others work for them. On the other side, we as normal individuals work with an ‘individual-centric’ approach making us work day and night to get a single paycheck and manage the expenses. Their mindset speaks about time freedom and they work for it.
A Sense of Direction missing in us
We as individuals focus on surviving our present and meeting today’s requirement, not concerned about what may happen in the future. On the other hand, successful businessmen work today for building their tomorrow so that though, they have the worst phase today, they might have to work day & night without fail; their tomorrow will be worth the effort. They have a sense of direction which stays missing in most of us making us stay the same while they keep adding achievements after achievements in their list.
The Myth: Some People become successful overnight
Yes, you read that right. No one becomes successful overnight. There is no ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme with which they become rich, they work for it. You might see the lavish lifestyle they have attained and all the riches but not the years of struggle, pain and hard work they have put in to come this far. You cannot possibly compare your life doing nothing with that of a successful person who did the extraordinary to achieve extraordinary results!
An entrepreneur puts in his whole life in building up his fortune because mere survival doesn’t satisfy him. He is not ready to give up on himself or his dreams and does every possible thing on this planet to achieve his goals. A few years of struggle, failure, and pain is okay for him but not a life living in his comfort zone achieving nothing! And that’s what makes him what he becomes! If you too wish for getting what they want, start doing things that they did to become successful.
