I recently released my first book, 10 Laws of Power for Entrepreneurs, which discusses the entrepreneurial process in detail.
I felt that this topic needed to be addressed because so many aspiring entrepreneurs don’t understand the process involved in entrepreneurship.
They subscribe to the belief that acquiring success is easy and almost instant — all that’s required to attain it is their “claim” to it.
May the ignorant soon find wisdom.
Entrepreneurship is a battle.
You’re battling for attention, for recognition, and for customers.
This makes success an elusive creature that can be very difficult to capture.
Therefore, mindset and behavior play a huge part in how well your hunt for success goes.
Your mindset influences the actions that form your behavior.
If you have a mediocre mindset, then you’ll have mediocre behavior.
A mediocre mindset is when you feel entitled, play the victim, and hate the success that other people experience.
Mediocre behavior is when you do half-ass work and always look for shortcuts.
Mediocrity is a repellent of success and unfortunately, a lot of entrepreneurs operate within the confines of mediocrity.
The entrepreneurial process requires a winning mindset because this type of thinking influences successful behavior.
If an individual doesn’t possess a winning mindset they’ll never succeed in operating within the entrepreneurial process.
This is because the entrepreneurial process requires consistency, persistence, and massive action.
The average person who performs at a mediocre level doesn’t have the capacity to perform well within the entrepreneurial process because it requires intense focus — something mediocre individuals can never have.
If you’re not used to being accountable for your own actions and hustling nearly 24/7, then you’re going to need a crash course to learn how the entrepreneurial process works.
You’re going to need to thoroughly understand this process if you have any chance at succeeding in entrepreneurship.
If you fail to grasp this concept, that is dependent on mindset and actions, you’re guaranteed to fail at entrepreneurship.
So let’s dissect the entrepreneurial process to help you learn how to operate effectively and efficiently as an entrepreneur.
