15 Characteristics Of A Successful Entrepreneur
Successful Entrepreneurs, Tend To Have These 15 Characteristics. Let's Just Say We Are A Different Bread. We Are Hard-Wired Differently.
We Think Differently, Act Differently, and Live Different Than The Rest Of The World.
Here Are 15 Of The Most Common Characters Or Traits Of An Succesful Entrepreneur :
1. We Are Momentum Based Beings.
Feelings Are Hard For Us, We Tend To Have Feelings Based On How Much Momentum We Are In.
Have You Ever Been In A Flow State Or Being In The “Zone”, And Everything Is Firing On All Cylinders.
We Would Describe This As “Happy”, “Euphoric”, ” Extasy” Or Anything Else That Gives Us That Dopamine Drip.
On The Other Hand When We Haven't Been Able To Move The Needle, We Tend To Feel “Sad”, “Upset”, “Frustrated” And A Whole Slew Of Emotions.
This Is Because We Are Momentum Based Being, And We Feel Best When We Are Out Changing The World.
Are You A Succesful Entrepreneur Because You Are Constantly In A State Of Momentum?

When I Was A Personal Trainer I Saw Movement Patterns In People.
When They Limped, When They Put Too Much Weight On One Side Or The Other When They Lifted,
Or Knew If Someone Was Going To Have A Bad Or Good Day Based On How Their Morning Went.
AS Successful Entrepreneurs We See Patterns In Things And Adjust Accordingly.
