Psychology Of Opportunity & Business Success
Undeniably there are certain things that successful business people do with regards to opportunity that others do not. This may be perceived as almost a secret mode of the successful. The various literatures on entrepreneurship agree that there are certainly some traits that are adopted, either by instinct or deliberation. Innovation and entrepreneurship – what is the difference? Innovation is the adoption of ideas and taking action to implement them. Entrepreneurship, on the other hand, is all about spotting opportunities, gathering the resources and potential and getting the idea to market. With all this said, what is the psychology of success? It may be argued that successful people have the habit of doing things failures don’t like to do; they don’t like to do them either but this dislike is put firmly into second place behind the strength of purpose.
Upon analysis, successful people seem to have the habit of doing things in a different way from the unsuccessful, thus showing that attitude is a key factor of the secret to success. Goals and success The very fact that goals are present shows that ambition and drive are present. Goals make people work that much harder and provide a reason to work. So it is necessary to be clear in one’s desires – lifestyle, car, house social life etc. Accept responsibility It is very obvious that successful people accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions.
They don’t blame others and accept failures as being a product of their own behaviour. This enables people to take control of the situation rather than have the situation take control of them. Self – limiting beliefs This is the only ting that holds us back. Fear of failure is drummed into us from a very young age with the result that we are scared to mention our deepest ambitions. Believe it or not, fear of success is yet another limiter on our beliefs. So it is important to examine just what is holding us back, and realise that most fear is mental and not actual. Developing a positive attitude If one is surrounded by negative people then it is possible for this negativity to migrate and be absorbed by yourself. It is essential not to be surrounded by doom merchants who foist their own sense of inadequacy on to you and tell you why this or that will fail. Believe in yourself Self-belief and self confidence are probably the most important gifts we can have and pass on to our offspring. The reason for this is that this produces an atmosphere whereby we are willing to experiment and try new ideas.
Also, importantly; we don’t measure ourselves by other people’s standards. Take the decision to be successful Success does not just happen to you, it must be worked at. Concentrated efforts and trade-offs are required but anything can be achieved. Time management Many successful entrepreneurs are habitual list makers. Time must be managed effectively therefore it is a must to have clarity of what you are trying to achieve. Set goals and achieve them What are your goals? What do you want to have achieved in the next three weeks, or in the next three months? What is it that you want to achieve in the next three years? A combination of all of the above will certainly improve one’s chance of success, irrespective of the chosen field.
