As an aspiring entrepreneur I’m sure you are familiar with the frustrations associated to making your mark on the NICHE you choose to dominate.  It’s tough to start from scratch. It’s even tougher to get it right the very first time.  So many ideas and possible paths… so little direction.

It’s likely you are proficient at some things and terrible at others…

It’s kinda like being in the middle of the ocean… There are endless possibilities of where you can go… Some days the weather is clear and the ocean is calm. Some days the weather is frightening and the waves are overwhelming…. As an entrepreneur you can either embrace what you are given, create a surfboard and ride the waves of mother nature or…  you can choose to give up, get swallowed up by chaos and uncertainty and sink.

Personally… I’d rather go surfing.

The big question is how do entrepreneurs become so successful?  What’s their secret? How do they embrace mother nature? How do they build their surfboard?

I’m not claiming to have the exact answer… but, below are the characteristics I believe can help an entrepreneur become/remain successful:

-Focus

-Commitment

-Organization

-Courage

-Patience

As our President once said:

“Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. it’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.” -Barack Obama

When there are waves… go surfing! -Moriya
