Entrepreneurs belong to a unique group of humans. Not only do they think differently, but they also act differently. To straddle the line between genius and insanity, they come up with ideas, which draw on mindsets, habits, and personality traits. Following are some of the personality traits of successful entrepreneurs, which are still a secret:
- Motivation: They know exactly what motivates them the most and it usually starts with a big loss or a major event in their lives.
- Clarity: They are absolutely clear about who they are and what they want. They can be termed as ‘meaningful specific’ rather than ‘wandering generality’.
- Competence: They are exceptionally good at what they do which makes them successful and happy. They make an exemplary performance of the primary tasks their main goal and then pour all their energies into a cause – offering best quality products and services.
- Constraints: Between them and their goals is just one thing, a constraint or a limiting factor and they exactly know how to overcome that limitation.
- Creativity: Innovation is the essence of a successful business. If Mark Zuckerberg would not have thought out of the box, he would not have been in the list of the most successful entrepreneurs. So, creativity is what makes them ‘potential genius’.
- Concentration: The ability to concentrate single-mindedly on the primary and core issues of the business, make them successful in their respective fields.
- Courage: They take the courage to invest money in the departments which are risky. Once the entrepreneurial journey has begun, they have the courage in themselves to persist.
- Action Plan: Before investing in anything or starting something new, they make a foolproof action plan and list down all the necessary things to consider in it.
