Compare Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Steve Jobs.
It’s obvious that they’re all entrepreneurs, all successful, and all very famous. What other commonalities do they have? Very little actually.
So how did three so diverse men all come to be successful entrepreneurs? Passion and drive. All their all personality characteristics, backgrounds, and leadership approaches become completely secondary. They are first and foremost passionate about what they do, and secondly they have an unparalleled drive to achieve what they want to in their businesses.
After the passion and drive we can start listing hard work, motivation, commitment, sacrifice and all other behaviours which enabled their success. Their traits include relentlessly pursuing what they want, never accepting rejection as a final answer, and thriving on change.
The traits of an entrepreneur are diverse and yet incredibly alike. All pursued their passion as if there was nothing else in the world that mattered. By creating their own possibilities and luck, each successful entrepreneur created their own reality, and thus impacted our reality in such a way that their products colour our world.
