I will highlight some of the mental activities of the entrepreneurs which make them a winner in the starting of the journey.
Winning entrepreneurs live their goal on the daily basis
For them, the goal is not the end destination rather a continuous process which is reflected in their daily activities. You get to see all this in their way of speaking, way of doing things, their attitude towards their work or I can say that their overall personality is infectious which makes you believe in their goals and you end up becoming their loyal customer. They work confidently despite uncertainty, makes them a winner in the beginning itself because for them believing is seeing not the other way round. They prefer moving ahead even if they do not know the path where it is leading but it will ultimately lead to somewhere that will be brilliant just like Columbus who left for Asian land but discovered America
Their actions are not dependent on the occurence of events
I can say that though most of their actions are inter-related focusing towards the goal but actually are independent in nature. That is they do not stop doing right things due to the unavailability of the certain facility or their actions are not dependent on the occurrence of certain events. Please understand this with the help of the following examples in which the occurrence of one event is dependent on the other:
They have the presence of mind and don’t crave for instant gratification
Do you know when you lose your biggest asset, the presence of mind?
It happens when you desperately want or do not want certain to happen in your life. This instant feeling of gratification makes you lose your presence of mind. The winning entrepreneur practice delayed gratification that is s/he conditions the mind that the future benefits are more rewarding and appreciating than wanting of instant and short term gratification. One of the most important qualities of the winner entrepreneur is that that they rarely become impatient. Instead, they accelerate their process of achievement of the goal through defined and the focused efforts.
Think one and do one attitude
The winning entrepreneurs do not clutter their thoughts in the minds rather they continuously create free space in the mind by letting their thoughts out by implementing them in the form of actions. Implementing what you think is one of the effective ways of the growth and creating a vacant space in the mind for another thought to come. Our thoughts are inter-linked; means the coming thought is authenticated by the preceding one. The more is the clarity of the previous thought; the better is the accuracy of the next thought. The best way to authenticate the thought is to implement it in the form of an action. For example, you think of writing an e-book and next the thought of it making the best-seller, attracting more readers and the clients for your business and growth happens. The only way to support the next thoughts is to implement the first thought actually by writing the e-book. You will get to know the outcome; if it becomes a best seller then it is fine otherwise you come to know the improvements that you need to make to make it a best-seller.
A winning entrepreneur takes into account each and everything which he does in a day. Most of the entrepreneurs do have the accountability sheet with them, be it in their minds or in the physical form. This method helps in measuring their progress on the daily basis and let them know the improvements to be made to reach their daily goals. They have persons whom they trust, judge their progress and provide the feedback. Initially, you can also make an excel sheet of your daily progress and then evaluate yourself every evening.
Just think don’t overdo it as it leads to the depression
If you are a winning entrepreneur, you will do the right amount of thinking and if you are a sinking entrepreneur then you will over-think. The science behind the over-thinking leads to depression is that your mind start making long term future outcomes based on your half-baked assumptions that will or will be relevant in the future and you create a false picture of your goal and when you do not get the things as planned, you become depressed, restless and starts thinking negative. The best way to avoid this negative feeling is to think optimally like take a task in hand and involve yourself in it. Whenever you feel that you are going into over-thinking just shake your head, get up from your chair, talk to your friend or go outside for the walk. The winning entrepreneur does these similar activities to avoid over thinking and staying in present.
The all the above practices are related to the mind which does not require any kind of investment. The only thing required is the regular practice of teaching and tethering of your mind to think like a winning entrepreneur. You can start practicing these activities anytime, any day irrespective of the size your enterprise.
