How To Develop An Entrepreneurial Spirit: Change Your Mindset
Many people say they are an entrepreneur, or a CEO, or a founder, yet they don’t have that spirit within them nor live that lifestyle. Part of the reason for the disconnect is people see what a version of entrepreneurship is online that doesn’t match reality. They do not see the constant work, the long nights, the early mornings, or seeing deals fall apart at the last moment. Thus, when the realities hit, when the difficulties arrive, many people crumble and their businesses fail.
So how can you avoid this? How can you develop the proper entrepreneurial spirit? By changing your mindset from consuming to creating.
Our mindset now is set to buy goods and services. We want to spend the money we make working for someone else because it makes us feel good. However, this mindset is incompatible with entrepreneurship. This spirit of work requires you to create resolutions to a problem. It can be creating a clothing line for a particular lifestyle or hobby. You could create websites for startups. Or you could record and edit videos for individuals and companies.
Your Relationship With Money Will Change
When you develop an entrepreneurial spirit, your cares about spending money transforms into making it. Now this mindset is not a negative one to have. We all must make money to survive. Some choose to sell their labor to others for it, while others create a product or service and sell it.
As for me, I’m always thinking of some new product or service when I come across a problem. I work on possible solutions then research to see if my idea is feasible. Sometimes it is, other times it’s not.
You Must Move Fast
That leads me into my final step of developing an entrepreneurial spirit: Moving fast. You can’t sit and wait on an idea. Yes, we’re all busy but you must make the time to research and build your idea. Another person could be making that idea right now. Thus, you could miss a great opportunity if you wait too long. That’s why I love self-employment because I can move quickly to solve a problem instead of going through management and waiting for their decision.
