An entrepreneur is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An entrepreneur like person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. A businessperson is one who sees opportunity in all small or big areas of life.
To be entrepreneur is to keep your eyes open and your mind active.
To be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities when they present themselves.
A person with an enterprising attitude says, “Find out what you can do before taking action.” Do your homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can in preparation of what’s to come.
Entrepreneurship always see the future in the present. Entrepreneurship always find a way to take advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And entrepreneurs can't be lazy. They don’t wait for opportunities to come to them—they go after the opportunities.
Entrepreneurship means always finding a way to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition.
You need two things to be entrepreneur like:
To see what’s out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach—to be different.
To be creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.
Being entrepreneur doesn’t just relate to the ability to make money.
Being entrepreneurship spirit also means feeling good enough about yourself, having enough self-worth to seek advantages and opportunities that will make a difference in your future. By doing so, you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and your self-worth–your enterprising nature.
Attract Opportunity Into Your Life
Someone once asked me the question, “How can I have more opportunities come into my life?” It is a good question—but I think my answer might have surprised them a bit.
I bypassed the obvious (and necessary) points about hard work, persistence and preparation. They actually were very hard workers. And they had the great attribute of being seekers, on the outlook.
So what were they missing?
Attraction—the most valuable point
I always thought opportunities and success were something you went after. Then I found out that I needed to turn it around. Opportunities and success are not something you go after necessarily but something you attract by becoming an attractive person.
That’s why I teach development of skills. If you can develop your skills, keep refining all the parts of your character and yourself, your health, your relationships so that you become an attractive person, you’ll attract opportunity.
Opportunity will probably seek you out. Your reputation will probably precede you and someone will want to do business with you.
All of the possibilities are there by working on the philosophy that success is something you attract.
