How Does an Entrepreneurial Mindset Help You in Life?

It’s often said entrepreneurs are rule makers and often rule breakers. Sometimes we speak about entrepreneurs like they’re some alien species with an entirely different brain anatomy. Nothing is farther from the truth. They’re like anyone else because we are all born with qualities that can make us great entrepreneurs[1] if not in business, in life for sure. We just need to develop those skills and qualities even if we’re not building businesses. This is what Sorin V. Chiriac, Entrepreneur and Director of Business Development at REKZE Laboratories LLC thinks.

It took him almost 10 long years of business entrepreneurship to value the life lessons he learned in his journey as an entrepreneur. He started as a tech entrepreneur and launched several successful start-ups. Later on, he switched his focus from technology to the cosmetics industry, and his company became sole importer and supplier of premium derma-cosmetics brands in the Eastern European market. Later on, he became Director of Business Development at REKZE Laboratories LLC.

He believes entrepreneurship can be very enriching for personal development in particular and an entrepreneurial mindset[2] can actually offer great benefits in your own daily life.

1. Believe anything is possible.

The first and most important lesson he can share is that you have to always believe anything is possible. This goes beyond the desire in your heart; it means that when you believe something is possible, it’s also doable. If something is doable, you have to focus on how to do it. This trains your mind to see solutions rather than problems and distinguish the priorities in your life.

2. Take time to appreciate small accomplishments.

As an entrepreneur, you’ll fail more times than you’ll remember and you’ll almost never see any rewards of your efforts overnight. Success takes time and, often, more than you thought. But entrepreneurship is also about the little steps like receiving a “Thank you” card from a client or your first sale. All great things are built slowly. It’s the same in life. When you start appreciating the small accomplishments, you also start to see things differently. You learn to be patient and learn to use what you have, rather than wait for what you don’t have. You learn to make things happen.

3. Don’t do things alone.

When we think about entrepreneurship, we envision something singular. Sharing your ideas and working alongside someone that shares the same beliefs can be very enriching and many times can help you find the needle in the hay of success. If there is something more that Sorin V. Chiriac learned from his entrepreneurial endeavors is that people you surround yourself with are essential for your success. They say if you’re the smartest in the room, you’re probably in the wrong room. Being at odds with someone challenging your ideas can be as constructive in life as it is in business. It’s the same for people supporting your ideas. Having someone believing in you at a time when you cannot find motivation is priceless. Most important: understand you can’t do it all. We need people to help you with little things so you can focus on a handful of your most important goals.

4. Focus on what you do, not on others.

You’ll always find the grass greener on the other side. Chiriac is a person of action, and he likes to keep building things as he goes, but many entrepreneurs, and he’s known a few, think being a perfectionist is the key to achievement. They spend a bunch of time analyzing their competitors, seeing how they can outrank them. It’s a good thing to know what others are doing, as you want to be a step ahead, but don’t spend too much on it; focus on your ideas because thinking too much about what other people are doing results to nothing, but wastes time we could have used to be more creative in our lives; never forget that time is our most valuable asset.

5. Just do it.

They say you don’t have to be a genius to be an innovator. Well, that’s perfectly accurate. Most of the ideas and inventions were not new. They became new when they hit the market. When you come up with an idea, the next step is to go for it and patent such an idea,[3] or someone else will do it for you. This is valid in every aspect of life. Sometimes being first is better than being perfect.
