5 Differences Between Successful & Unsuccessful Entrepreneurs

5 Differences Between Successful & Unsuccessful Entrepreneurs

Have you ever wondered what makes your most successful friend so successful? What about your least successful friend? What’s their problem? What’s the difference between those that thrive and those that struggle?

There are several differences, and they’re quite obvious if one takes the time to look.

If you understand the differences, you can examine your own situation and gain insight into why you might not be as successful as you’d like to be.


See how successful entrepreneurs do things differently than unsuccessful entrepreneurs:
  1. Their businesses are defined by their goals. Unsuccessful entrepreneurs’s lives are defined by their fears. Most entrepreneurs run their businesses in a way that avoids their fears. Successful entrepreneurs make decisions based on accomplishing their goals, not avoiding their fears.
  2. They apply their time toward long-term objectives. Unsuccessful entrepreneurs are motivated by day-to-day concerns. The average person is only concerned with making it through the next week. Successful entrepreneurs take action each day that will provide benefits months, years, or decades in the future.
  3. They read books. Unsuccessful entrepreneurs gravitate toward TV and other non-value-added forms of entertainment. Reading the right books is one of the most effective ways of boosting your knowledge. Would you rather learn something new or waste your time?
  4. They surround themselves with the right entrepreneurs.Successful entrepreneurs spend time with others that help them to become better. This could be a mentor, someone they could potentially do business deals with, or simply someone they believe has the right connections.
  5. They have positive, effective habits.Good brushing and flossing habits lead to healthy teeth. Good exercise and diet habits lead to health and fitness. Good success habits lead to high levels of success. What do your habits lead you towards?
    As you can see, there are clear-cut differences between successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs. How many of these items can you identify with? What changes would you like to make?Which one you decide to be is up to you. Are you committed to progress or comfort? Do you have a plan for your time that maximizes your effectiveness, or do you like to fly by the seat of your pants? The choice between success and mediocrity is up to you.
