From a Silicon Valley Pilgrim…an entrepreneur like us
First rate observations. See if this sounds like you. From Tales of an Entrepreneur
1. Successful entrepreneurs are relentless in their pursuits
I can’t count how many times I’ve been taken aback by an entrepreneur’s dedication to solving a problem, reaching a milestone, or achieving something everyone thought impossible. A good entrepreneur will baffle you with their relentless dedication in pursuit of a goal…
2. Successful entrepreneurs move in packs
Successful entrepreneurs are like wolves. They survive in packs. Since graduating …several of our fellow…start-ups have remained in touch while others have drifted and either died or disappeared. We’re very close with the founders…and we share things with each other in the utmost confidence, which is not something most start-up founders can do. It’s almost like group therapy. Having a trust circle…con’t
3. Successful entrepreneurs crave knowledge and are eager to share it
An entrepreneur who is not starry eyed and dreaming is an entrepreneur that will fail.
Almost every time I meet with a successful entrepreneur, I see that spark in their eyes. Maybe they just had a vision or just read a great blog post. Maybe they just solved a problem or they just learned about a new product. Whatever it is, they are excited to talk about it. Entrepreneurs are always searching for knowledge, and they can’t wait to share it with you. You’ll find that this is reflected in their products…
To sum it all up, he writes,
“successful entrepreneurs live in a distorted reality that they create for themselves. They have a vision that they pursue like food during a famine. Satisfaction is rare and never immediate. To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to live in a world that doesn’t exist yet: the world that you want to create.” More here.
Does that sound like the entrepreneurial world you live in?
Yes, absolutely this sounds like the world I live in. I have never been one that could convince myself to be satisfied with the way I found things. "Devine dissatisfaction " is what R.G. used to call it. It is not ingratitude or unthankfullness; it is just a knowingness that it can be better and imagining what it would look like when the improvements took hold.
It is an incurrable condition. Whether good or bad is purely opinion. Just ask yourself where this world would be if it were not for the dreamers, the innovators, those that ask why, and the entrepreneurs? I love to hang out with this bunch and it is probably why I at this blog now.
