Rather than being marked since birth, entrepreneurs are people who have made a series of good decisions in their businesses and lives. The word entrepreneur is borrowed from the French word “entreprendre”, which means to undertake. It shares similarities with a Sanskrit word Antha Prerna which means “self-motivated”. Taking calculated risks that are backed by responsibility and self-motivation are key to an entrepreneur's success.
It all starts with the big picture; the mental image of what an individual seeks to achieve over a period of time. You must first conceive a path before anything else and then set goals to establish it and make it a reality. A positive outlook must be constant, regardless of the chains that hold us back. The unshakable approach like that of a hawk must be exemplified to stay true to the vision despite the ups and downs.
Entrepreneurs are made by their environment and by the observations they make within it. The greater the exposure to others who have succeeded, the greater the belief that the sky is the limit and the constant search to seek more. If you have that feeling within you that you are destined for much more than you are currently doing, it is often the result of excessive belief and lack of trust is the reason you are not doing anything about it. Being an entrepreneur at a young age gives you a unique advantage, compared to adults starting businesses years after college or even during their retirement years.
Anyone can become an outstanding entrepreneur if they are willing to develop their natural skills, be open to learning what they don't know, and develop the habits that will constantly keep them on track of their goals to realize their big vision. Most entrepreneurs go through a series of trial ideas, experience failures, learn from mistakes, and celebrate small “wins” throughout their business management journey. Many business gurus say it's important for entrepreneurs to know their “why” to run a business. Businessmen belong to the exclusive group of people who break free from the crowd by opening the first doors to leave their claustrophobic paths.
Today's entrepreneurs are made of their obstacles, failures and all the tiny successes they achieve on the path of entrepreneurship. The way someone decides to use their natural abilities to choose and learn can cause an entrepreneur to fail. Once entrepreneurs create a fundamental shift to the path of entrepreneurship, there is still a long way to go. Successful entrepreneurs have also established their “why” and they have a real motivating force behind them, aside from money.
