Outstanding entrepreneurs are simply exceptional. Their actions are laudable and courageous. While entrepreneurs may not be perfect, they do have one thing right—they realize that to achieve great things, you need to have a laser focus for what you are going for. Outstanding entrepreneurs focus on the goal; they don’t worry about mundane factors, or the risks that they are taking. They look and work toward the future.
1. They don’t worry about just making money.
Outstanding entrepreneurs are not motivated or worried about making money. Rather than worry about money, they are focused on their passion. They work hard and focus on delivering value to the world around them. Yet somehow, this often pays off financially, even though it is not what they are worried about.
2. They don’t worry about failing.
Why worry about failing when there is so much to accomplish throughout the process even if you do fail? Outstanding entrepreneurs don’t worry about failure or even talk about it. They know that failure is an integral part of success. They know that they have to fail before they succeed.
3. They don’t worry about work/life balance.
Most outstanding entrepreneurs view their work as play. They know that work should be something they are so passionate about that they want to always do it. Every other element in their life will always have a connection to their work. This way they don’t just work to live; they live to work.
4. They don’t worry about being who they are not.
Every entrepreneur is unique. They are authentic and real. If they are media entrepreneurs, that is what they stick to. If they do better with being tech entrepreneurs, they stick with it. They don’t bother themselves with trying to be who they are not or who they cannot be.
5. They don’t worry about quitting.
For the average person, there is always an exit strategy. But the entrepreneur is concerned with doing what needs to be done to succeed. If they have to quit, it means they want to re-energize and reinvent their approach.
6. They don’t worry about what they are worth.
So much is attached to the personal worth of an individual that we forget that what really matters is how much a person has given back. Outstanding entrepreneurs focus on giving and offering value rather than simply taking.
7. They don’t worry about their past woes.
They are not concerned about how they failed in their last venture. They don’t worry about the mistakes of yesterday. They will learn from them. But they will not burn themselves out with the consequences of their former actions.
8. They don’t worry about the rules.
Rules were made to be broken. Most outstanding entrepreneurs function against the norm or what many may have considered to be the conventional approach. There is always an exception to the rule, and every entrepreneur wants to be in that sphere where they are not simply following the pack.
9. They don’t worry about losing everything.
Everything gained could be lost and everything lost could be gained, so why play safe? Outstanding entrepreneurs are focused on the adventures and the experiences that life has in store for them each day rather than what they have to lose.
10. They don’t worry about being wrong.
Yes, they can be wrong. No one can always be right. But it is better to try rather than to get stuck on what will happen or what won’t. Outstanding entrepreneurs are concerned with taking action rather than whether they will be caught in the wrong or held responsible for their actions. They are concerned about the end goal and doing what is necessary.
