Model Successful People
Successful people have three things in common – they know where they are now, they know where they want to be, and they move along that path daily. Their actions become the key determinants of their success. The accumulated messages of their biographies and autobiographies provide added insights into their personal qualities, offering a model for you to emulate as you set and chart your own path. Below are some qualities and actions required, how to Build Successful Entrepreneurial Qualities.
Know where you’re going
Knowing where you’re going is part of the success story. Although your vision will encounter setbacks (we’re told envisioned futures usually have less than a 70 per cent chance of being achieved) 1 visions help to transform possibilities into realities. As the saying goes, ‘If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll finish up somewhere else.
Believe in yourself
Successful people believe in themselves, confident in the knowledge that they can achieve. Their actions broadcast that belief and provide freedom and power. They let nothing limit their potential. Positive affirmations can be effective means of reinforcing that belief, to build entrepreneurial qualities.
Be open to opportunities
Your openness to opportunities will ensure a continuing flow of them. Guard against negative thoughts and inaction limiting your potential to achieve. Some success stories indicate such an abundance of opportunities that choosing which ones to pursue is made very difficult. Spreading yourself and your resources too thinly must be avoided.

Uncertain future, is what entrepreneurs dive into as this is food for their soul, wiling to risk their time and money on unknown unknowns. They ask themselves, what if it does not pay off, or is the risk worth the cost of time and money? They are adaptable and flexible lead by their passion and dedication to serve their market and client’s needs. Successful entrepreneurs welcome all suggestions for optimisation or customisation that enhance their product.
Set goals that challenge
Successful people know that what they focus on grows, and goals help to provide the necessary focus and direction. Challenging goals bring out the best in people.
Successful people don’t blame others when things don’t go as planned. The responsibility for the fulfilment of your dreams lies with you. The power to succeed – or to fail – is yours. And no one can take that away.
Ask yourself if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, instead of worrying about fitting the image, check in with your gut. Is it on board?
You have to want something badly enough to let nothing stand in your way of achieving it. But that does not suggest any recourse to aggression; many success stories depict quiet achievers. Desire helps to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Successful people, we’re told, help to make things happen.
Courage is a special personal quality that helps you distinguish between what ought to be feared, and what need not be feared. Though history’s successful people have never backed away from any encounter that threatened their progress, they made certain they were around to ‘fight another day’.
Learn from failure
The law of failure is one of the most powerful of all the success laws because you only really fail when you stop trying – that’s why successful people never fail. Setbacks simply provide them with essential feedback to help them chart their course.
Some attempts will fail, thus not every proposal will be successful. The failure rate is not low, could be seen as high. Sometimes, the best solution is to call it quits and try something new instead of continuing to dump money into a failing business. Many famous entrepreneurs weren’t successful the first time around, but they knew when to cut their losses.
Make honesty the best policy
Cheats may prosper – but not for long. You will be called on daily to choose between honesty and dishonesty, and those choices contribute to your reputation. With honesty, there is no middle-ground; you can’t be ‘a little honest’ or ‘slightly dishonest’. You’re either honest or dishonest.
Strive for excellence
Achieving excellence is the pinnacle, and it’s attained by few. Make sure you go beyond the call of duty, doing more than others expect. Excellence comes from striving higher, maintaining the highest standard, looking after the smallest detail, and going that extra mile. Successful people never compromise their standards.
Be persistent and flexible
The power to hold on in the face of adversity, and the power to endure these, are the qualities of a winner. Persistence is the ability to face setbacks without losing sight of your destination. Persistence is the skill of doing everything necessary to reach your goals, including making adjustments based on the feedback received.
Action combines all of your insights, experiences and talents into physical performance. If you’ve set your vision, selected opportunities, rallied your courage, determination and desire, it’s time to act. Outlaw procrastination. Successful people know that without action nothing happens.
Love what you do
Love is the most important ingredient of success. Successful people rarely make distinction between work and many of their other activities: they do what they do because they love it. Sharing that passion with a select few make all the effort worthwhile.
Do you have passion that set successful entrepreneurs apart:
- Loving what you doing, as said above, will allow you to find interesting ways to do what you love
- This will lead to you reading up and testing different ideas to find better ways
- Waking up in the morning gives you that get-up-an-go attitude to carry on where you stopped yesterday
One should have effective planning skills, not over-thinking, there is a huge difference. Entrepreneurship is about building a business from scratch while managing limited resources (including time, money and personal relationships), which requires planning. However, trying to plan for everything and having a ready solution in place for all possible issues may prevent you from ever taking the first step. Successful entrepreneurs have a business plan in place, but remain capable of dealing with unforeseen possibilities. We have a business plan layout you can follow at above link.
