How to start thinking as an Entrepreneur

We often come across the term Entrepreneur, but we may not know who they really are. Entrepreneurs do not accept things as they are. But they are constantly looking for ways to improve situations and make changes for the better. Entrepreneurs do not worry about what others think. But, they focus on doing what they think is right and necessary to achieve their goals. Entrepreneurship is a state of mind as well as a set of actions, according to Inc.com.


Do you see the glass empty or half full? This determines the way you think. A survey by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) shows that 27 million American employees start new businesses, but half of small businesses fail within the next five years, according to the U.S. Census and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Why is this happening?


It all depends on the mentality. Those who have a business mindset are more likely to succeed in their business. Entrepreneurs are always ready to succeed and that means you can adopt their way of thinking. Who knows? By changing your mindset, you may be able to change the future of your business. Here are seven ways to start thinking differently and get into the entrepreneur mentality:


1. Be passionate

First of all, entrepreneurs are very passionate about what they do. They build their businesses from scratch, often with great personal sacrifice. Whether they invent a new device like Steve Jobs did for Apple, or start a pioneering company like Jeff Bezos with Amazon, entrepreneurs go beyond themselves to make it happen. Find out what is passionate about you and start today.


2 . Don't be afraid the failure

If you do not start implementing what you have thought, you will not even know if you will fail. Everything just needs proper planning, organization and study. There are millions of people today who dream of quitting their jobs and becoming entrepreneurs. But for most of them, the dream remains a dream, because they are afraid of failure. As the beloved award-winning author and businessman Robert T. Kiyosaki puts it: "It takes courage to discover, grow, and give your genius to the world." I highly recommend his book:

"Poor Dad, Rich Dad".


3. Have discipline

Entrepreneurs are extremely focused on their goals and do not walk away from them. While they spend a lot of time in their business, they consume their time wisely, plan their day and make sure it is not wasted. They know that there are no shortcuts and that work is the only way to success.

You have to have discipline to be able to work every day on what you are passionate about.

4. See challenges as opportunities

When entrepreneurs face a problem, they do not back down and do not run away from it. They are facing it and looking for new ways to recover. While most people emphasize challenges, entrepreneurs thrive on them. There will always be challenges, the point is to face them quickly and come back stronger.

After the Covid-19 era, everything has been done electronically, even the smallest shops have managed to make sales online.Who could have imagined that a grandfather would order online, with the help of his son or grandson of course, his daily shopping of the supermarket and the grocery store? And yet, he had to adapt to the new conditions. The same was done by the owner of the grocery store, who until recently did not know how to use the internet himself. In our example, challenges were treated as opportunities, so should you.

5. Think out of the box

To think outside the box is a metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally or from a new perspective. This phrase often refers to new or creative thinking. So, take yourself a little out of what you are used to be doing every day and see the world differently. Do not be afraid to dream big. Entrepreneurs do not worry about the opinion of others. But, they focus on doing what they think is right and necessary to achieve their goals.


6. Accept other people advice

Entrepreneurs are great listeners and understand the value in a different perspective from their own. In order to grow, they must constantly improve and look for new ways of thinking - and that often means long discussions with other successful entrepreneurs who can advice them correctly. At this point, I recommend this book:

" Think Out of the Box: Generate Ideas on Demand, Improve PRoblem Solving, Make better Desicions, and start thinking your way to the top (power-up your brain)"


7. Plan your future

Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, wrote in his blog: "Entrepreneurs can inspire new moves, create new jobs and encourage savings. They can encourage people to be more entrepreneurial and sow the seeds for the next generation of creative and innovative workers. " Entrepreneurs dream a lot, but they always make their dreams come true. Start thinking like an entrepreneur and watch your career have new perspectives.


Finally, if you want to become more familiar with the concept of entrepreneurship and start thinking like an entrepreneur, I recommend you read the book:

"The Entrepreneurial Mindset-Preparing our new generation for the future of work"
