Last week, we looked at how discipline stands out as one of the qualities of a great Entrepreneur that cannot be ignored.
Success is a master in itself; discipline makes you a disciple of it-Idowu Oluwayinka
Today, we shall be looking at another powerful quality of a successful entrepreneur called hard work.
I have never seen a successful Entrepreneur (dead or alive) who is not diligent at his work.
Success is rarely accidental. Success is a not a good friend to what people refer to as luck. Success is more available in arenas where hard work is on duty.
Entrepreneurs who successfully build new enterprises possess an intense level of strong determination and willingness to work hard. They possess a capacity to work for long hours and in spurts of several days with less than normal amount of sleep. Through their hard work and intense desire to complete a task or solve a problem or overcome hurdles, they are able to achieve the never ending goal of excellence.
Hard work pays, no wonder it remains the currency spent by successful entrepreneurs.
From my personal research, I have found out that a normal employee works an average of 40hrs a week working from Mondays to Fridays. But a real entrepreneur at startup doubles this work time working not only from Mondays to Friday, but his weekends are inclusive.
He is thinking, his writing the proposals, he is connecting and making the required contacts, he is engaged sorting one business case or the other.
It takes guts to be an entrepreneur. Entrepreneur is not a title given to the idle and indolent, it is the hallmark of the hardworking and diligent.
The holy book says: seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. I strongly believe the holy books was describing the hardworking entrepreneur
Hard work and true Entrepreneurs are not separable they are married together to produce success.
I want you to join me again as we look into another attribute of a successful entrepreneur called leadership,.
Till I come your way again, remain enterprising till your success come. Bye for now.
