Successful entrepreneurs hone their character and leadership traits over time to keep reaching for new horizons and to achieve ever-shifting goals. Success, therefore, is a journey and not a destination. What are the traits that you need to work on to achieve sustainable success? 

Gain the respect of your peers….. With an attitude of respect for others, successful entrepreneurs gain respect   from everyone they encounter. Strategies, attitudes and methods filter down to each person they work with. Successful entrepreneurs give everyone the space to be great.  Trust and believe in yourself…..Wise Entrepreneurs are good at trusting their own ideas and instincts. Successful entrepreneurs have persistence, determination and a high level of self-discipline. Success is all about a strong code of ethics, a strong belief in your self, desire and passion.  Follow a plan….. No one reaches their destination without a map to follow. Successful entrepreneurs start out by writing a basic business plan to guide them. It should include marketing strategies, goals, intentions, ideas and why you can outdo your competition. Review and update your business plan periodically as new ideas inspires other ideas.  Think Creatively….. Successful entrepreneurs think creatively. Whether or not a business idea has already been tried makes no difference to them, they just find better ways to do things. Successful entrepreneurs are willing to think outside the box, using their imagination and expanding on a vision.  Explore your skills….. Successful entrepreneurs explore their skills and find the ones that match their ideals. They don’t try to be and do everything. They ask for support.   Envision your success…..Successful entrepreneurs visualise their success. Intention is a powerful tool. Get in touch with the feelings you have as a successful entrepreneur. Practise a sense of empowerment and the joy of success.   Never give up…..Giving up is not part of the vocabulary of successful entrepreneurs. But smart entrepreneurs realise that there are good, and not so good days. Successful entrepreneurs are open for change and they seek out the support of those who bring out the natural enthusiasm in them.   Inherent leadership characteristics…..Traits that define effective leaders: Emotionally stable, dominant, enthusiastic, conscientious, socially bold, tough-minded, self-assured and compulsive. Leaders of the future must envision the future and convince others that their vision is worth following. To do this they must have the following personality traits: High energy, intuitiveness, maturity, team orientation and charisma.  

Leaders are rarely, if ever born. Circumstances and persistence are major components in the development process of any leader. So, if your goal is to become a successful entrepreneur, focus on those qualities you need to incorporate into your make-up.
