Great habits to adopt as a successful entrepreneur

The term entrepreneur is heavily associated with the millennial generation. The word 'entrepreneur' represents a brand new way of working which is vastly different to the traditional 'nine-to-five' working day. What we fail to realise is that entrepreneurs have been around for centuries and shared the same timeless habits of our modern day business entrepreneurs.  

 

We know of numerous entrepreneurs who operate in the present, some notable ones being, Mark Zuckerberg who believes that your passion should translate into your own entrepreneurship, others, the likes of Steve Jobs who is forever synonymous with Apple, Jobs had a net worth of $8.3 billion at the time of his death.

But let’s take a look back at entrepreneurs in a less traditional sense, these being Walt Disney who began his career drawing cartoon pictures. He found it difficult getting work with the local newsletter as a cartoonist, and eventually looked at other options, through persistence and continued learning he developed one of the most famous brands in the world. If we go even further back to the 1800s and consider Hans Christian Andersen who came from a deprived background and through his fierce determination got his fairy tales published and became hugely popular. Did you know that his classic The Little Match Girl was based on his Mother’s childhood? Both Andersen and Disney formulated and built their lasting legacy on storytelling – a vastly popular business and marketing communication tool today.

Therefore, entrepreneurs have always existed, they have just lived under different guises. But what are the characteristics they have in common? What behaviours traits and habits must you adopt to succeed? Here are some core suggestions that you can integrate into your everyday life, think of it as a checklist you go through daily and refer back to when challenging scenarios occur:

Top habits to adopt for entrepreneurs:

  • Do the more challenging things on your ‘to do’ list first

  • Design a specific routine that suits you

  • Make time to unwind, be that working out or meditating etc.

  • Make your role as straight-forward and organised as possible

  • Focus on money making aspects

  • Continuously monitor your progress

  • Always make time for your family

  • Became a very solution based problem solver

  • Never stop learning

  • Radiate positivity
