Successful people doesn’t play the blame game. If they mess up they openly admit it to people.

Acknowledging the mistake will help in future improvements.



3. Failure is a “no-stop”

Only a hand-full of entrepreneurs can claim they made it atop with no failures whatsoever. Everyone fails is the plain truth. No matter how many times one fails, success in the end is what counts. Successful people learn from mistakes encountered and strive for better.

    I think as entrepreneurs we’re just more motivated perhaps then those working for others because we want more out of life. I would hope everyone would have these types of qualities though.

      Good point adeem. I would say entrepreneur perspective is quite different than those working for other because they act and take responsibility for their own life.

      We should admit it needs some courage and perseverance to achieve entrepreneur status.
