Have you ever wondered what makes an entrepreneur tick? Their thoughts often boil down to three main categories: Their business, their goals, and themselves.
Inside The Entrepreneur’s Brain
At the forefront of all entrepreneurs’ thoughts are work. What’s done, what should be done and what needs to be done are constantly circulating in this area.
Whether its a yacht in Ibiza, an estate in Monte Carlo or a fleet of commercial jets with their name on it, entrepreneurs are consumed with big pictures and big goals.
Ahead of the Curve
Entrepreneurs don’t follow trends, but make them. That requires constant contemplation of the future.
I Think, Therefore I am … The Best
Self confidence is crucial to all successful entrepreneurs. You need to believe you can do it, whatever you do, better than anyone else.
Entrepreneurs are constantly brimming with ideas. However, not all ideas created here are commercially viable, i.e. “tiddy bear”.
What are entrepreneurs not thinking about? The fear of failure. Failure goes hand in hand with ingenuity and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs don’t waste their time worrying about the worst case scenario. Instead, they focus on the steps to making their plan succeed.
Entrepreneurs are obsessed with power: Power Suits, Power Lunches and Powerpoint Presentations.
Entrepreneurs think about the DJIA like twelve year olds think about Grand Theft Auto; they compulsively ponder their next maneuver and will never admit to not fully understanding how it all works.
Thoughts in this area deal specifically with the new “IT” device. How to use it, new applications for it and who to bribe to be the first to get it.
Fuhgettaboutit (Forget About It)
Entrepreneurs spend time actively trying to forget what they learned in school. The “Real World” often requires risky decisions that go against what Professor “So and So” taught.
Richard Branson Envy Nodule
Every entrepreneur that aspires to reach Richard Branson’s level of success has an active envy nodule behind their left ear.
Don’t judge an entrepreneur by the size of his stalk. 90% of intuition is housed here, mostly due to its direct connection to the gut.
