Among the top important ingredients to entrepreneurial prosperity is mindset. The appropriate type of mindset can produce achievement in almost tough instances, and the misguided outlook will lead even the most potential, well-capitalized business plan to disaster. While a great many completely different sorts of men and women do well in their life, the great achievers all often have specific qualities.
What could be the most critical, primary element the winners have in common? Just about all take notice of Yoda. Remember The Empire Strikes Back? In it, Yoda tells Luke Skywalker “There is no ‘try.’ There is only ‘do’.”
Which happens to be the fundamental key to successful entrepreneurs throughout history. When times get rough, they don’t say “Well, I tried” and call it a day. They adapt to whatever circumstances they are presented with, either a great opportunity or a difficult challenge, and do.
The internal monologue of the successful person doesn’t consist of “What if I blow this chance?” or “Maybe I’ll get started next week.” The winners in life say to themselves, “I will make the most of this opportunity” or “I will succeed, no matter what.” Even when they encounter seemingly insurmountable obstacles, they don’t throw up their hands in despair; they keep plugging away and say to themselves, “I will find a way to succeed.”
And they do. They succeed. The people who keep trying and never give up are the people you see on the cover of Fortune or Sports Illustrated or pulling up to their mansion in a new BMW or retiring at 40 or 50 because they’re already set for life. And sometimes they’re just people who live a comfortable life without any obvious displays of wealth, but they live knowing they have financial security and everything they want out of life.
Listen to Yoda. Don’t wait till later, and don’t think about failure. Focus on the goals you want to achieve, then get out there and start turning your dreams into reality.
