THE FIVE DIMENSIONS OF THE ENTREPRENEUR MINDSET – R.E.A.C.H.

 

Risk

You need to be able to take calculated risks. Do your research and due diligence. But don’t be overcome by analysis paralysis. You don’t have to get it perfect. You just have to get it going. You need to learn to be decisive and rely on your instincts but balance it out with proper research. Your gut is usually right.

A real entrepreneur is not afraid of failure or losses. He knows he can start over. It’s the way of life.

 

Expectation

 

Set your expectation at a reasonable level. Too many people fail because they either under estimate what needs to be done or they are overly optimistic and come crashing down. Learn to

Set your expectation at a reasonable level. Too many people fail because they either under estimate what needs to be done or they are overly optimistic and come crashing down. Learn to achieve balance. Learn from others in your field on what are realistic expectations. Do you need 6 months, 1 year or 5 years to build a successful business? Don’t get your hopes up to high. When things don’t happen as planned you’d lose your confidence and purpose to go on.

Have a clear vision and purpose for your self and your business. All entrepreneurs are visionaries.

 

Action

 

 

You may have ideas and inspiration but without action, you won’t reach very far. Take one idea that you’ve been playing with and take action today. Set clear, attainable goals in alignment with your vision.  And take responsibility for the outcomes, whether they are good or not so good.

 

Care and Community 

 

This dimension of the entrepreneurial mindset that most people striving to become entrepreneurs fail to realize. They are more focused on making money and less on making a difference. Both are important. Interestingly, those who make a difference in the world, build a name for themselves and gain credibility within the community. This in turn, leads to greater profits in the long-term. Making a difference makes dollars and cents.

 

Happiness 

 

Burnt out, stressed out, failing relationships, neglected families, poor health, no time for self, are all examples of a failing entrepreneur. A true entrepreneur is able to master the mindset of happiness. Happiness of heart, head, health and home. They find true fulfillment in leaving a legacy behind.

 

You need to work on all five dimensions of the entrepreneur mindset in order to be a true entrepreneur.
