Learn about some of the qualities that, while many consider them negative, can motivate you to start a business.
The opinions of the employees of You are personal.
Almost every article on entrepreneurship suggests that this is not for everyone. Most of these articles list the qualities people must have to be successful entrepreneurs, such as work ethic, perseverance, and discipline.
Over the course of 25 years I’ve studied new entrepreneurs and found that qualities weren’t exactly what made them successful. People like John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, and Oprah Winfrey have been unsuccessful because of the attributes frequently listed in these articles or because they followed the path recommended by management gurus.
So don’t believe what others say about you or how they label you. Maybe your supposed flaws are really your qualities. We share 12 signs that many people are contemplating failure, but this can be an indicator that as a business owner you are cut out.
1. You hate the status quo
It makes no sense to you that something has been done for a long time without explanation. You are not a person who goes with the flow.
2. You get bored easily
While many view this as a mistake, the reality is that you become bored with activities that don’t challenge you or test your skills. Maybe that’s why you hated some courses and never took them. For example, Bill Gates dropped out of college and became one of the richest men in the world.
3. You have been fired from various jobs
You’re too creative and this can affect your teamwork. So you likely have a history of getting fired. You find it difficult to have a steady job because you really want to create something inspirational.
4. They consider you a rebel
You know size is beyond the limits of comfort and you think some rules don’t apply to you.
5. You are defying authority
Ever since you were a child you have defied the authority of your parents, teachers, and later your bosses. You are not happy with the rules of your community or your job.
6. You want to improve everything
They are always looking for ways to do things better and differently. You are constantly sharing your vision and ideas even though no one asked you.
7. Courtesy calls cost you
It is too difficult for you to make the small talk for many people to find it easy. Social codes seem to be a waste of time and can make you feel uncomfortable.
8. You were teased when you were young
During your childhood and adolescence, you were criticized and even the target of bullying. This can lead to your trying to stand out in everything and show the world what you are worth.
9. You are obsessed
People are likely to refer to you as obsessive / compulsive because once you’ve started something you can’t leave it unfinished. Do not be convinced that it is a disease or a deficiency. All great entrepreneurs are fully immersed in his vision.
For example, Howard Schultz stuck with the idea of starting Starbucks even though his family persuaded him to quit.
10. You are afraid of being alone
The entrepreneur in you is afraid of going out on your own, but also afraid of not going out. This fear is widespread in our society as we believe that being an entrepreneur is riskier than a “good job”. The reality is that there is instability in both cases.
11. It is almost impossible for you to relax
You have trouble sleeping at night because you have too many ideas that keep you awake and even pop up in your dreams. The next morning, you will be consumed with the same idea that distracts you from your work.
12. You feel out of place
You always felt uncomfortable. Until you get used to the idea that you are different from most people, this can be a problem. As you learn to channel it, you can make it your motivation to realize that you are a potential entrepreneur.
