You probably have had many jobs in your lifetime – probably even started a business or two for it to fail. But, did you know that the majority of people don’t know they are an entrepreneur or that they actually have entrepreneurial skills, traits and talents? How do you know if you’re an entrepreneur?
If you want to know if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, ask yourself if you have the ability to successfully make a living for yourself? Create a list of things that you believe make you an entrepreneur and then top it off by stating, “You Are An Entrepreneur.”
How can you know for sure if you’re an entrepreneur or an entrepreneur-in-the-making?
You Are Full Of Passion
Passion is what drives people to do what they love to do. Entrepreneurs have a lot of passion, and they need it if they’re going to be successful. If you love what you’re doing and enjoy doing it most days, you are going to be a success.
You’re Always Looking For New Opportunities
Entrepreneurs are often seen as opportunists. They look at everything as the next big thing and give it a try. They even see failure as an opportunity to learn from.
You’re Always Thinking You Can Do Better
Have you ever walked into a retail store and thought you could do better than them? You may not even be a retail guru but you know ideas are coming to you on how you’d do things differently and better. With your keen eye for opportunity and you’re thirsty for success, you know there’s got to be another way – a better way – to do things.
You’re Constantly Thinking About Work
You don’t see work as a means to an end, and not a way to get paid and go home. Instead, you’re dreaming of something more for your work. You live and breathe it. It’s not that you want to work more or harder; you’d rather work smarter. You desire for your work to have some deeper meaning. It goes beyond the 9 to 5 workday.
You Dream Of The Future But Stay Focused On The Present
You love to dream, but you don’t just daydream. You’re thinking of plans to use in the future while still working to be successful today. You’re thinking big for the future, but you don’t lose focus of the present.
