Are some people born destined for success?
Are others doomed to a lifetime of working 40 hours a week in order to pay their way and put food on the table?
Are entrepreneurs really born or can they be made?
How are these successful executives different from the rest of us?
What do they know that we mere mortals do not?
Do you promote equality and feminism at work?
Here are two of the most important personality traits which are common to many of the most successful entrepreneurs and executives.
The good news is, all this stuff can be taught with positive executive training methods ߢ letߢs touch on a few key points below:
You may groan and think this oneߢs obvious ߢ but how many successful people do you know that give up at the first hurdle? None, thatߢs how many.
According to many entrepreneurs and experts this is the single most important personality trait ߢ youߢve either got it or you havenߢt but without it youߢll get nowhere. Robert Mitchum said there just isn't any pleasing some people. The trick is to stop trying.
Starting any new business is a marathon which youߢve got to stick to, live with and push forward through countless obstacles for any number of years.
Successful executives and entrepreneurs donߢt get discouraged by problems and failure ߢ they simply dust themselves down, pick themselves up and start over. Donߢt be a punk. Start over.
Failure is only an early attempt at success after all.
Itߢs really about having the confidence in your own abilities to succeed.
As Jon Hamm said in the TV show Mad Men, "I have a life. And it only goes in one direction, forward." Many successful entrepreneurs or executives would feel like they were selling out and taking the easy option if they didnߢt pursue their ultimate dreams.
This is the other vital personality trait ߢ truly successful executives and entrepreneurs are fuelled by passion.
It may be easy to assume that their passion is money but many entrepreneurs will actually disagree with you ߢ their passion is more likely to be aimed at the service or product they offer.
They are passionate about having the opportunity to solve problems making life easier, cheaper and better by honing their business skills for their customers. They have a strong, inner belief that they have the ability to change the world ߢ thatߢs how they manage to keep going when the going gets tough.
According to many of the most successful executives ߢ when the going gets tough the only way out is to dig deeper.
If you werenߢt born this way donߢt worry ߢ itߢs never too late to learn.
What sets these people apart from the rest of us really is all in the mind ߢ they have the mind-set to believe in themselves, in their businesses, their products or their services.
They donߢt get disheartened when the going gets tough and would look upon settling for an ߢordinaryߢ employment opportunity as a way of throwing in the towel.
