Do You Have What It Takes?

I think it's fair to say that not everyone is cut out to be a successful business owner, now some of you maybe disputing this statement but hear me out.

I'm not saying that if you put a person in the perfect business environment that they won't succeed but how often does the perfect business environment appear?

Based on my own study and observations, as well as, the common themes that come through articles on my Minds Alike Blog Site ( I have put together a selection of the various "things" that a person must possess to be a successful business owner:

To be a successful business owner you must believe that you'll succeed and have a positive attitude because there will be times when self doubt strikes, but if you believe that success will happen then the doubts will be overshadow by your positive attitude.

To be a successful business owner you must be prepared to risk everything, this is where many people give up because they are not prepared to take the risk that could end up with them losing everything.

To be a successful business owner you must keep things happening, if you're someone who procrastinates and cannot overcome procrastination, you'll never succeed.

To be a successful business owner you must motivate yourself and not expect motivation to come from books, mentors, coaches or seminars, they can all help but when you wake up of a morning, it's all up to YOU.

To be a successful business owner you must have a Passion for what you do, otherwise you'll not have the Desire to carry on once the hard times hit and there will be hard times, believe ME.

To be a successful business owner you must never compromise on your Core Values, no matter what the payoff maybe, if you "trade in" your core values you haven't succeeded, you've given up.

To be a successful business owner you must have vision, you must be able to see how your business needs to develop and change in the future.

To be a successful business owner you must seek the Assistance of Others unless you're someone who knows everything and can do everything yourself, which, as you know is not the case, we all need help to succeed.

As I said at the start, not everyone is cut out to be a successful business owner, some of the themes above can be taught but will they stick and become part of YOUR make-up?

If your answer is no, then sorry, but you don't have what it takes!
