Who is an Entrepreneur? Where do you find them? Are they important? Why are they, workaholics? All these questions are so common yet so confusing. The truth is no one knows what a true Entrepreneur means. They aren’t workaholics (Not that much!). They are us. You can find them anywhere and everywhere. If you have an idea that is unique, creative and something worth implementing, then you are an Entrepreneur. All you need is an idea and the dedication to execute that plan to become an Entrepreneur. But what about success? Executing and successfully executing are two different things. What makes the successful ventures different from others? What are the top factors for Entrepreneurial success? Well, same is discussed below.
Far away from fear:
An entrepreneur can never execute his idea if he is in fear. Fear of failure, fear of losing. Fear will stop the Entrepreneur from taking any risks. But Entrepreneurship is all about taking risks. You can take precautions, but the risk is essential. Without taking risks, you cannot hope to succeed. Failure is very much acceptable. Failure makes you learn more things than you will learn from being successful at the very first attempt. You cannot learn to walk without falling. Similarly you cannot hope to succeed without failing. Fail without any fear. For, then only you will value success.
Far away from being perfect:
Entrepreneurs are not perfect. They are far away from it. They know nothing about perfection, and honestly, they don’t care about perfection. They make mistakes and learn from it. This way they get to value things, to plan things, to organise things. They come close to perfection with time, but they don’t become perfect. For, perfect people will think a hundred times before doing something. Entrepreneurs believe in action. They believe that but not more than twice. They believe in learning by implementing. They aspire to become successful and not perfect. So, you not need to be perfect or goody two shoes. All you need to do is implement, try, make mistakes. They are allowed rather they are necessary.
Filled with determination and skills:
You want success; you will get it. But you need to love what you do. You need to eat, think, pray, live and love your work. You need that determination, that excitement. Mondays should be exciting for you. Soft skills are mandatory. Your discipline and morals are two soft skills that will reflect in the visions and goals of your company. Be yourself, love what you do, appreciate it yet be a critic. The harshest critic. Drown yourself in enjoyment that is your work. Don’t work because you have to but because you want to. Passion, confidence, Hard-working and clear aim are few common traits of successful Entrepreneurs.
Finance and Funds are a joke:
You need to know what you are doing and how you are doing it. You need to know how to convince other people. How to show them the uniqueness of your idea? For then only, you can raise funds. Don’t be scared of funds. They will come if you know how to bring them. Make yourself and your idea so high that investors come behind you. Apparently, you will face rejection but make them regret that rejection by not losing hope and finding someone else. It should be a kind of ‘fun-hunt’ for you. Know how to attract others. The day you are capable of making people believe that you don’t need them or their money but they need you and your companies that are the day you know you are headed the right way. You know that success is not far away.
Find legalities fun rather than necessary:
Staying legal is one thing that is crucial for being successful. As an aspiring successful Entrepreneur, you need to know all the legalities affecting your company. You may not love them, but you need to understand them. If you don’t find them fun, you can always rely on legal advisers but only the reliable ones.

In the end, stay original, be yourself and aim for the sky.
