Failure Accepted, Thank You Very Much
Most entrepreneurs have risked failure, experienced failure and learned from it (or are they hardened by it?) Early failure becomes a part of the entrepreneur's start-up story. Maybe time is taken to cry and carry on - and then the entrepreneur moves on.
Keeping the eye on the proverbial ball. Goal Setting. Planning. Charting destiny. Entrepreneurs can look ahead to the ultimate goal, and see a bad economy or a failed prototype as a step in the ladder to ultimate success.
Patience Over Time
Success is rarely overnight, and entrepreneurs stomach the time factor. Sometimes it takes 15-20 years for technology or attitudes to catch up with a good idea and suddenly it becomes marketable.
You Are What You Think
Entrepreneurs transform thinking - they don't wallow in negative space. If you can practice zapping that negative self-dialogue when it rears its ugly head, you will live more like an entrepreneur, with confidence.
It's time to quit our whining and complaining about the down economy, pick ourselves up and act more like entrepreneurs. The economy is on a strong path to recovery and the past year or two are just blips in the radar. By now, we all have lean but strong operations and we are poised for new sales, new consumer confidence, and success!
What lost mojo?
