Issa Asad Shares 4 Traits Successful Entrepreneurs NEVER Have
Emily Dickinson wisely stated that “behavior describes what a man does, not what he believes, thinks, or feels.”
Issa Asad Florida entrepreneur since 1996 agrees; “Ultimately, it is a person’s behavior that can determine whether they become successful or not,” said Asad. Mr. Asad is the CEO of Q Link Wireless and Quadrant Holdings, located in South Florida. He is also the author of 4 e-commerce and marketing e-books that can be purchased on Amazon.
There is already so much information on the attitudes and behaviors of the most successful people in the world. However, the question that most people who want to become successful fail to ask is: Which behaviors should you avoid?
Here, Issa Asad Shares 4 Traits Successful Entrepreneurs NEVER Have.
1. Being overly sensitive and acting out
Not everyone will like your product or service. In fact, there is a likelihood that people will criticize your ideas. Take it all in stride, even if the criticism is harsh. The truth is that if you want to be successful in business, you have to grow a thick skin. It is important to understand that some people will love you, hate you, or even be jealous of you. Do not take what everybody says too personally.
The truth is that in business, whenever you need to make an important decision, do not give your emotions a vote. If you have a problem dealing with emotions such as jealousy or insecurity, you may act out and project your negative emotions on everyone around you. This could kill both your business and your career.
2. Panic and indifference
These two behaviors are opposite extremes that a successful entrepreneur never has. It is normal to experience fear and pressure in business. However, successful people know that panic cannot banish any fear. They have mastered the art of remaining cool, calm, and collected in the face of unforeseen circumstances. This is because they know that the best way to mitigate a crisis is by reason and evaluation.
However, a person who reacts to situations with lighthearted indifference may also fail in business. A person who reacts to negative situations with statements like ‘no worries’ or ‘it’s all good’ displays apathy, and this could be detrimental to their business. This is because a certain level of passion contributes to success, and lighthearted indifferences can mean that you are not passionate about your business.
3. Laziness and looking for quick-fix solution
One thing most successful people know is that there is no elevator to success. The truth is that you often have to take the stairs. Unfortunately, a lot of people are not ready to put in the time and effort necessary to achieve success. Some are too lazy to work hard, and so they choose shortcuts with the hopes that they will get to the top. Successful people do not fall for get-rich-quick schemes. They do not wait for luck to give them what they want. They are prepared to work hard for the long haul.
4. Dwelling on the past or future
There are a lot of valuable experiences you can learn from your past. Your future can also be filled with a lot of hope or fear. However, dwelling on any of these is a recipe for disaster. No amount of regret can change your past, and no amount of worrying can alter your future. It is only by focusing on the present and working hard right now that you can turn your dreams into reality. Do the necessary work right now, or the future will overtake you and you’ll find yourself in the same position 10 years from now with nothing to show for it.
