The Mindset of Successful Entrepreneurship
Spend a few years working with and studying extraordinary achievers in the business world. Soon you’ll notice a certain mindset that seems to precede and maintain successful entrepreneurship. This article delves into that mindset to help define it; make it something more people can grasp onto and train themselves to employ.
Successful Entrepreneurship Requires a “Have To” Mindset
Chances are you cut yourself short and your self-expectations do not come close to what you’re truly capable of. Modern folks tend to skate by in life completely oblivious to just how bad things can get outside the technocracy. They settle for average and choose not to do what’s necessary to create something amazing.
Successful entrepreneurs operate as though their life depends on it. They maintain a certain level of hunger that drives them beyond mediocrity. We’re talking the shade of hunger found at the bottom. There at the lowest point of our lives when there isn’t anything left to lose, our powerful minds make miracles happen!
- • These days, the amount of “digital rags to riches” stories are going to come at us in waves.
- • The amount of power the individual has at their fingertips for a small monthly fee is downright astounding! I’ve seen people commit to internet marketing, creating information products etc. and completely turn their lives around in less than a year.
- • Once your success becomes something which no doubt can approach, and you operate on a “have to” level, your cup will begin to runneth over.
Fierce Commitment Will Make or Break Successful Entrepreneurs
I’m going to share a quote with you that pretty much sums up how powerful commitment is. Successful entrepreneurs will become quite animated when talking about it. There is no line of separation between their successful enterprises and their level of commitment. Loyalty is par for the course.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
That quote quite literally holds the keys to success. You switch your mind into a “have to” mindset and then commit. Once you do, your path seems guided by a hand from on-high. Peculiar circumstances happen.
Everything becomes a signpost on the highway to success. Read and re-read that quote because all successful entrepreneurs are completely committed and loyal to their goals.
Trend Setting Entrepreneurs Speak the Language of Success
Right, so you’re hungry for success, you’ve committed and soon not only your thoughts but your words and verbiage reflect the chance in mindset. No more of this…
- • “This may or may not happen.”
- • “If I get it done.”
- • “I hope that…
- • “I wish that…”
Instead they speak as though their goals have already happened. It’s…
“When I get this done then…” There’s no need to hope because successful people don’t doubt themselves. They’re too hungry! They don’t have the luxury to sit around wondering when life will “take off.” They’re too busy flying!
Spend a week talking to no one but successful entrepreneurs and then go out and start up conversations with otherwise ordinary people. You’ll notice the big differences in verbiage right away.
Internal Affirmations & Stepping Stones
No matter what happens to successful people, inside they view it as a stepping stone to success. Nothing can stop them. There is no other choice. They HAVE TO, remember? Furthermore, as Goethe makes perfectly clear, once committed…
“A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his (their) way.”
It gets to the point where everything seems like one of those unforeseen incidents, meeting and material assistance that comes out of nowhere. In interviews most successful entrepreneurs will mention or speak about luck. The next time you hear that realize that what they’re really referring to is in Goethe’s quote.
- • “Everything that happens to me brings me closer to success.”
- • “Everything is a stepping stone to my goals.”
- • “I’m constantly moving towards my success.”
These are some examples of the successful entrepreneur’s mindset.
All Successful Entrepreneurs Believe in Karma (Whether They Know it Or Not)
When it comes to their businesses, what are the two things that successful entrepreneurs focus on? Benefits and customer service. They go above and beyond to earn the loyalty and respect of their ideal customers.
This translates into marketing as well. Outbound marketing and black-hat methods are gone; outdated. These days it’s about inbound marketing and creating a product so useful that people are drawn to it without costly advertising or spammy marketing campaigns.
Think about it, the more useful something is the better. The simpler and more accessible to people the more successful it is. Everything revolves around how beneficial products are. Yes, making money is a part of the whole system, but everything is ultimately dependent on a happy consumer.
The Take-Away: The Successful Entrepreneur Mindset Dominates & Doesn’t Drift
It’s not about drifting through life, but rather taking the helm on our short voyages through life to do something awesome and leave a mark. To achieve astounding things despite the odds. They go into success-survival mode, commit, chance their frame of mind, use a success-based verbiage and then focus on benefits and customer service.
That in many ways encapsulates the successful entrepreneur mindset.
