What set’s entrepreneurs apart from the others? What makes their creative and independent endeavor any different? Drive. Entrepreneurs are driven to not only succeed and make money, but perhaps more than anything, they’re driven to make some sort of an impact.
Whether through a product or approach to doing business, entrepreneurs want to make a difference. It’s the reason why I started Change Realty back in 2009–I wanted to create a business model that benefited the homeowner and let them keep more of the equity in their home when they go to sell. Thats why Change Realty is home of the 1% listing fee! And over the years, we’ve been able to bring a positive impact to over 750 families lives!
By servicing those families, by finding them their perfect homes and giving them the opportunities to keep more of the equity in their home, my associates and I have felt a profound sense of purpose in our work, and it keeps us motivated.
From Entrepreneur.com, here’s are three more exceptional traits of highly motivated entrepreneurs!
We live in an age of rapid information, of innovative technology, of an ever-evolving digital landscape. And while it has equipped individuals and businesses alike to create, collaborate, and communicate better than before, it also means we’re living in the age of distraction. Emails, texts, Facebook messages, families, social events. For some, it can be overwhelming and easily difficult to manage, but for successful and motivated entrepreneurs, they not only manage their distractions, but stay focused on their goals.
“IT’S UP TO ME”
While it’s important to accept feedback and help from whose opinions and ideas you respect and admire, motivated entrepreneurs understand that, ultimately, they take full responsibility for everything. Especially when they hit a roadblock. People love to blame everything else besides themselves, however that won’t get them anywhere. Owning your ideas, choices, thoughts, and actions may seem daunting, but for those who are highly motivated, it should simply inspire them.
CREATE A PLAN
Did you ever realize that most goals that are not written down often go unachieved? Motivated entrepreneurs know that writing down their goals and creating a tangible action plan is the best way to turn goals into reality. When you write down your goals, see it as the first step to it becoming real, and write it down as if you’re signing a contract. Read your goals out loud daily in order to remind your mind what the big picture really is, and what it takes to attain it.
