There are many different opinions on whether entrepreneurs are born or made. Some people believe that entrepreneurs are born with certain traits that make them successful, while others believe that success is achieved through experience, knowledge and passion. Research supports the idea that entrepreneurship is innate, with a survey finding that only 1% of entrepreneurs believed that higher education played a role in shaping their entrepreneurial mentality, while 61% credited their innate drive. David Goggins is the perfect example of someone who has all these traits.
He was once very depressed, afraid of water and weighed 300 pounds. It went from that to being a thin and bad machine from a Navy SEAL. He stopped letting his fears get in the way, and his mentality made a full 180 and completely transformed. David wasn't born with all those traits; he learned them and developed his resilience over time. You're born to be the kind of entrepreneur you should be.
You can be a scammer or a copycat. You may be the buyer or the innovator. There are many different types of entrepreneurs, and you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. You just need the right skills and conditions to help you succeed. To a certain extent, there is truth in this statement that an entrepreneur is born.
Two types of entrepreneurs are born: first there is the one who is born into a family that already owns a business, and second there is one who has no resources or knowledge in terms of investments, but is full of ideas. Some people are simply born with the skills and personality traits needed to be successful entrepreneurs. They have a natural charisma, risk-taking capacity, creativity and more. When you meet and chat with a successful entrepreneur, you quickly realize that they have a deep understanding of how their business works, trends in their industry, competition and other related topics. However, most companies fail, which makes me wonder if the world's supersuccessful entrepreneurs have a unique business gene that the rest of us mere mortals have to live without. You can go to business school to learn the theories and processes on how to run a business, however, not everyone who graduates from a business school can be called entrepreneurs. It is possible for anyone to have an idea and create a business, but to be successful, certain characteristics are needed and these are the natural strengths that make entrepreneurs. For most aspiring entrepreneurs, it's comforting to think that entrepreneurs are made; that even if you don't have the right DNA, enough practice, experience and conditioning can help you succeed. There's definitely a little bit of gray matter when it comes to being an entrepreneur.
The question of whether entrepreneurship is innate or learned is a good one; however I think that a key factor in becoming a successful entrepreneur is the way in which you can manage and manage risk. For this reason, for me there will always be a clear distinction between an entrepreneur and a business owner. Entrepreneurs, social psychologists and economic theorists have speculated on whether entrepreneurs are born or made; in other words if you are predisposed to become an entrepreneur because of your genetic makeup or if that disposition comes from your environment, conditioning or other influences. The reason for this is that to become a successful entrepreneur you need dedication, passion and the drive to never give up. Those who support mentoring initiatives say flatly “yes” while there are others who believe that entrepreneurship is something you are born with; that you will instinctively overcome any obstacle to your business succeeding. In conclusion, success in any field of life is not due to innate traits; rather it is achieved through experience, knowledge and passion. Entrepreneurs have not been marked since birth; they are people who have made a series of good decisions in their businesses and lives. Therefore, entrepreneurs are not born; they are made.
