Here’s a simple strategy for coming up with great ideas for blog topics. My friend has a notepad with him everywhere he goes. He’s constantly taking notes, even when he’s at a basketball game. This friend is highly successful and very confident. Every minute of his life is productive. Obviously, that note pad has been an important part of his success.
The Entrepreneur who allows tolerance to be a part of their strategy will do far better than the Entrepreneur who is in-tolerant. That is as long as those with opposing viewpoints have an equal or greater tolerance.
The entrepreneur has to be confident in the decisions that he makes. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs rely heavily on others who appear to be experts on subjects, thinking that they will have the best interest in mind for the company and the entrepreneur.
That means that everyone that you count on in your organization must be extremely tolerant. If you identify someone who doesn’t share this ability, it’s wise to replace them as quickly as possible, before you have issues that rely on tolerance. If you don’t, a simple problem could have disastrous consequences for your business and your career.
If you get the chance, test your partners to see how they would deal with difficult situations. You want to know if you can really count on them to be there for you, or if they will turn on you. Think of a situation that will do no damage, but give you an idea of the ability for your team member to show how well they will deal with a stressful situation.
Every Entrepreneur will have to part ways with at least one or more parties during their business tenure and that person could be an employee, customer, vendor or even an investor due to tolerance issues.
Tolerance needs to be looked at from many different viewpoints. What may appear to be the issue is often not the issue, but a symptom of the real problem. You may find that the real problem is a team member who is accusing someone else of being intolerant and removing the wrong person could ultimately lead to total destruction.
Tolerance is your ticket to seeing what other miss helping you to become a great Entrepreneur.
The Serial Entrepreneur is a person that continuously develops new ideas putting those ideas into action by creating new start-up companies. This is unlike most entrepreneurs who act on a single idea over a period of time and stick with that idea or business.
The Serial Entrepreneur will be more likely to sell out of their business or turn over the reins to a managing partner freeing themselves up to continue on in another business.
Many entrepreneurs do not have the skills to manage large scale businesses, and by exiting and moving on, they are able to create new opportunities focusing on skills that fit their talents.
Serial Entrepreneurs are rarely comfortable in managed businesses as they often are looking to improve upon what they have created and will continue to change processes. Sometimes the results are positive and other times the results are not what the entrepreneur was hoping for.
Most serial entrepreneurs continue to do start-ups out of the need to have the challenge and excitement of creating a new company. They rarely are doing it for the money, no matter what their wealth status is.
Each time the Serial Entrepreneur does a start-up company, they find themselves more experienced allowing them to quickly navigate through processes that they have done before. This often will lead to faster and larger start-up companies. The relationships already developed allow them to obtain start-up capital, staffing and vendor relationships quickly.
Serial Entrepreneurs are often known in the community and can be of great assistance to other entrepreneurs if they are looking for help in developing new start-up companies. Many of them are willing to help young entrepreneurs find their way. They enjoy giving back and sharing their experiences with other up and coming entrepreneurs.
The economic climate depends on Serial Entrepreneurs to create new and exciting companies.
Accurate Thought is a challenging process that successful entrepreneurs depend greatly on to make their business work for them. They first identify what is fact from opinion and then determine what information provides value versus information that is fact and has no value. Discovering what is fact from opinion or fiction sometimes lends itself to be very difficult.
Recently, a video was released; appearing on Jay Leno showed President Obama kicking a door down after answering questions from the press that annoyed him. The truth was the video was an edited video, but after watching many times, I could not see transition from what really transpired to what was inserted. With talented video editors, watching video proof doesn’t prove much anymore.
If we are to properly use the art of Accurate Thought, we need to trust but verify everything we see or hear. Having bad information will severely damage our outcome when we rely on that information to accomplish our goals.
The news media is another place that one would at one time rely on to deliver fact, but now we have to take everything being reported as opinion type news, listening to several different sources to put together what the true story is. It’s as if reporters live by their ideals rather than just the facts.
We all may fare better by simply listening to those that represent themselves as opinion based news right from the start. Chances are you’re likely get a better picture as they aren’t representing their view is the way it really is, but their view is the way they see it. Many times, this type of news will show you how others view it as well and then you can make your decision from there.
Ultimately, once you have deciphered fact from opinion and then relevant facts from useless fact, you are able to move forward towards your Definite Chief Aim.
Who wouldn’t want to have a pleasing personality, after all those that do often find love and affection among many and are able to be the beneficiary of many perks in life… What we don’t realize is that those with a glowing position have mastered the ability to have the right characteristics to attract that attention.
While developing your new qualities can be challenging, it is not at all impossible for almost anyone to accomplish. Still, even those that have perfected a pleasing personality will do something that sabotages their results from time to time. Once attained, we have to continue to practice the skills necessary in good faith to ensure long lasting success.
I have managed to create a new image myself; however, I’m not one to thrive on the new image even though it would be of great benefit to do so. Until recently I hadn’t put the effort in, rather it came naturally at certain times in my life, but had I studied previously, I’m sure I would have reaped the benefit of my efforts
Entrepreneurs will often get hung up with making everyone else accept them for who they are, but entrepreneurs need to understand that marketing themselves is as every bit as important as marketing the company that they are working on. Many people will make the decision to do business with you not based on your product, but based on who you are and what you represent.
Ultimately, it all comes down to who you show yourself to be, and having a pleasing personality is usually a major advantage in your pursuit of success. Preparing yourself requires a small price that can pay huge dividends later.
Are you that full of yourself to think that you would rather be broke and be who you are, then be wealthy and not care what others think?
Enthusiasm can get you to jump out of a plane, but self-control is the part that triggers you to put a parachute on before you jump. We entrepreneurs are often known for jumping without the parachute, sometimes we land on objects that break our fall, but often we hit the ground at 115mph.
We’re often accused of Ready, Aim, Fire; an effort we make to get our business to the next level. We do need to take risks, but we also need those risks to be calculated and that’s what Self-Control is for.
I’ve often made calculated risks that go against what my “experts” said and got better results than I expected. I’ve also ignored what I thought was right, and chose to follow the “experts” with outcomes that were devastating. Either way, I owned the decision, the “experts” didn’t.
This isn’t to say you should dismiss advice from “experts”; you should take seriously what they say. What I’m saying is to make your own decision after you take their advice, but never make the decision to do what they say, when you disagree. They should convince you that their rights before you follow their path.
That’s self-control; you’re taking your enthusiasm and establishing a plan to back that enthusiasm up. You’re preparing to adjust when your desired outcome is not what you want. I’ve never had a decision that I regret when I’ve exercised enthusiasm with self-control and you won’t either. Ignore what enthusiasm and self-control does for you and find yourself regretting your decisions.
