How To Get An Entrepreneurial Mindset

"I am not an entrepreneur, I would like to have an entrepreneurial mindset as such or such a successful person!" Have you ever felt that way? What most people ignore is that we are all to a greater or lesser extent entrepreneurs. Creativity is inherent in human beings: we all have a spirit to win and get ahead that lies deep inside each of us. Sometimes, creativity is not developed and we forget that it exists, and sometimes that winning spirit is broken and we operate with a mentality of victims rather than believe that we will be victorious. But, originally, we all have the conditions necessary to discover the talents God has given us, develop and exploit them in any way. It is true that there are people who have a special talent to multiply money. Maybe you think you do not have that talent, but that does not mean it is not an entrepreneur.

The Wikipedia definition of entrepreneur is "A person who identifies an opportunity and organizes the necessary resources to implement it. It is common to use this term to designate a "person who creates a company" or that is a business opportunity, or someone who starts a project on their own initiative. "You see, it is customary to think of a business man when it comes to entrepreneurs, but entrepreneurial concept goes far beyond a mere businessman. An entrepreneur is a person who starts a project on their own initiative by using their creativity, their skills and talents. In this broader sense, we are all entrepreneurs. An inventor who discovers something new is an entrepreneur.

An explorer in search of new horizons is an entrepreneur. If you have read about Payoneer already – you may have come to the same conclusion. A missionary who organized a mission in the jungles of Africa is an entrepreneur. An author who sits down to write a book is an entrepreneur. Now, these people will have to develop their entrepreneurial skills to carry out their projects successfully. Otherwise, the invention is never going to patent, the browser will not get financing for exploration, the missionary will starve in the jungle and the book will not be marketed. What do we need to have that entrepreneurial mindset? Just one thing: education. If you have so far failed to generate resources with their skills and talents, it's because he lacked the information to do so successfully. Most people have been educated to be employees, not entrepreneurs. Many of us have learned very well to follow directions and comply with requirements and we can not act on our own initiative with motivation and passion. However, never too late to develop that entrepreneurial spirit that is asleep on you. Not going to get an entrepreneurial mindset of the overnight, but it will make progress increasing over time. His "entrepreneurship education" must take place in two distinct areas: internal and external. The changes that have to do internally are much more important than external and is where to start. The Bible calls this change "renew the mind." Once you have changed on the inside, this is also manifest on the outside. You will need to strengthen its spirit and learn to conquer their fears, to love and to exercise self-discipline, patience and perseverance. External education is much easier to acquire. To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to have knowledge of marketing and sales, leadership, planning, accounting and experience. The important thing is to start today with these changes. Will never reach a point where they will be well prepared to undertake. It is made by walking. Take a small step every day from TODAY!
