An entrepreneur is a person like you and me, but what is special about it? What distinguishes an entrepreneur from one who is not? We’re going to learn it this time, so pay close attention and read on!
This post really grabs my attention because it makes us understand that being an entrepreneur is…many things! And I’m taking this opportunity to create momentum. Without further reading the following post, I would like you to write what you think an entrepreneur is. Something like “An entrepreneur is a creative person…”. The idea is to see what you think, no matter how successful it is, okay? Well, let’s continue with today’s article.
An entrepreneur is…
… a person like you and me (déjà vu… hahaha, we said that before) but with characteristics that distinguish them from people who are not entrepreneurs. Next I will share what is an entrepreneur according to my criteria and based on my experience.
An entrepreneur is a dreamer
Without a doubt, an entrepreneur is a dreamer, but not everyone who dreams is an entrepreneur. And it’s like we can have a dream but leave it until then and nothing happens. On the other hand, a person who takes action because they have had a dream before, they have a goal, a goal they want to achieve. So if you want to be an entrepreneur, make sure you have a dream, a goal, a goal you want to achieve… and get excited about it!
An entrepreneur is creative
I don’t want you to imagine this creativity to make a beautiful ornament or something like that, although it is a very important attribute. But what I want to talk to you about is the ability to create. Every entrepreneur is a creator, and that makes sense because we are the very image of a creator. An entrepreneur likes to do something where there is none, he wants something that is in his head to be tangible.
An entrepreneur is afraid
When? Is serious? Yes, friend, an entrepreneur is afraid, and I want to talk about that in more detail in another post. But I will summarize what I want you to understand. I mean something similar to when we talk about the fear of God. It’s not a fear that terrifies you from seeing him or being with him, but a fear of respect, not doing what he doesn’t like because of consequences or you just don’t like him being upset.
In this topic, we can see it as fear of the consequences of making a mistake, so as not to have negative consequences. For example, “As an entrepreneur, I shouldn’t dare to work on improving my product because then the competition can beat me; As an entrepreneur, I can’t stop monitoring and examining my business because something bad might happen that will affect me later.” So, my friend, an entrepreneur always tries to do the right thing to avoid failure as much as possible to avoid.
An entrepreneur is stubborn, stubborn…
And we’ll talk about that a bit in a post (click here to see). An entrepreneur must be resilient and persistent. It doesn’t give up on the first try, nor does it give up on the first attack it receives. No matter what happens, he keeps fighting to achieve his goals, resisting all onslaughts from his competitors, enemies and “things of destiny”. So if you want to be a complete entrepreneur, I invite you to read the post I left you at the beginning of this point.
An entrepreneur is balanced
Another point I am dying to write and I hope that you will then have the opportunity to read it. And in short, I mean a balance in things like:
- Have passion, but don’t just get carried away by feelings, you need to keep a cool head!
- Focus on what you like, but also evaluate profitability
- Have authority, but don’t be a dictator
Among many other things. But the truth is if you ask me what is an entrepreneur? I would say that he is a balanced person… who strives for balance.
Anyone who acts is an entrepreneur
I want to end up on the other end of where we started. Do you remember where we started? Right, in a dream. An entrepreneur does not stay in a dream, an entrepreneur acts. So if you already have the dream, it’s time for you to do something to move towards it, otherwise you will be a big dreamer, but nothing more will happen until then! That’s why I recommend you do something now. And it is determined to create the canvas of your business idea… and everything it takes to fulfill your dream as an entrepreneur. Do you dare? Or do you want to stay the same?
That’s it for now, you are an entrepreneur!
Now that we have come to the end, I would like to read another comment from you. But we will change two things. You will replace:
- “An entrepreneur is…” for “I am an entrepreneur, I am…”
- “What You Thought Was an Entrepreneur” for “What You Learned Today”
Come on, we have to change the mentality. Without adding more, I can only say goodbye and wish you every success. A big hug and until next time friends!
