What makes you a successful entrepreneur? Well, you hear many people say, not everyone can be a professional football player, not everyone can be a basketball player, and not everyone can be an actor or singer. This is not true. There have been many very small football players, many very short basketball players, even singers without good voices that made it big. It is usually harder for these people to make it but they do and you can also. The same things that make them exceptional are the same things you need to be a successful entrepreneur.

Are you committed? Are jumping into it or are you procrastinating. It’s nice to have a good idea but what are you doing about it. A good entrepreneur is not afraid to jump in and get going. He is not afraid to work day and night to achieve his goals.

In my opinion one of the strongest traits of all is tenacity. If you have tenacity you are half way there. Once you have committed will you keep going will have the perseverance to not let anything stop you? Do you have enough determination to run through all the obstacles in front of you?

What about passion? Do you have the love of the game to take you look at what you might be doing wrong that keeps you from advancing farther? Does the big hit that would knock someone else out of the game make your adrenaline rise and push forward harder?

Do you have a vision? Being able to look ahead and plan gives the entrepreneur an advantage over those that have no peripheral vision. Can you spot an opportunity and know what to do with it? Do you see where all the pieces go before they need to be put in place? A good entrepreneur does.
