Starting a business is a hard job and it’s not for everyone. But if you want to try, don’t let the magnitude of the job stop you. You will never know unless you try.
To be successful, you will draw on all of your resources. The following three intangibles will be the most important.
A Positive Attitude
To be effective, the path isn’t always clear. That’s where a positive attitude comes in handy.
A positive attitude is a must, that’s something everyone should develop. In business it can be the difference between succeeding and giving up. Developing the skill to muster a positive attitude is a key to success.
Timing Is vital, and it can be one of the toughest things to get right.
Try to peer into the future, so that you can strike when the iron is hot. You will never be sure when the right time is, but don’t let that stop you from moving forward.
This is perhaps the most important quality. Rooster Cogburn had it in the movie True Grit and that’s how he got the job done.
Grit is what you need to see the business to its completion.
Other skills will be needed but a positive attitude, timing, and grit are the most important.
Remember, you’ll never know unless you try.
