1. They Have Big Dreams
According to David Novak, Yum! Brands, it is critical to dream big: “I want to continue dreaming big, even if others sometimes warn me I’m going too far. We have a better chance of attaining ambitious objectives if we establish them. What is the purpose of turning up tomorrow if we do not?”
2. They Are Capable of Recognizing Opportunities
The ability to identify opportunities is a critical characteristic of all successful entrepreneurs. As Gladys Edmunds put it, “sometimes opportunity knocks; other times you must seek it.” You don’t want to miss a chance to come in on a boat while you’re waiting at the airport.”
3. They Are Determined to Succeed
Successful start-up companies need a great deal of effort to get started, much alone maintain.
4. They Are Willing to Work More Effortfully Than Ever
Ryan Allis describes the arduous work as follows: “Would you work 70-hour weeks for months on end; sleep at the office when you’re backed up; risk your own money when payroll is due and the bank has yet to approve a loan; serve as the janitor… and present to a room of investors after being rejected by 50 other banks, angel investors, and venture capital firms?”
5. They are Self-Controlling and Concentrated
How you perform on a daily basis will decide whether you succeed or fail in the long run. Self-discipline is critical, since it is what will motivate you to work on the company and persevere through the difficulties that will inevitably arise as you begin your venture.
6. They Are Optimistic, However, They Are Prepared for the Worst
As Donald Trump said in his book, “learning to anticipate difficulties saved me a great deal of wasted energy and will spare you from unpleasant shocks.” It’s comparable to Wall Street; it’s comparable to life. The ups and downs are unavoidable; all you can do is prepare for them.”
7. They Maintain the Enthusiasm
Harry Wayne Huizenga, founder of Blockbuster Video and other successful companies, said, “It is not about making the investment for the sake of making the investment.” It is still having a good time. If you are enthusiastic and enthusiastic about anything, you will work harder at it. And you wake up the next morning still contemplating what you should be doing and so forth.”
8. They Identify and Collaborate with the Appropriate Partners
“Finding a genuine mate is one of the most important things you will do,” Kitty Holding said. You are stronger when you have a partner in whom you can place your whole confidence, depend on, and work successfully as a counterweight to your weaknesses.”
9. They Are Innovative and Think Outside the Box
To compete successfully in today’s business climate, you must be creative. Avoid chasing the leader; rather, develop new markets and reinvent existing ones.
10. They Understand How to Sell
“Seduce your customers,” author Donna Fenn said. “Do not sell commodities; rather, sell something far more emotional and valuable.”
