Entrepreneurs are a curious bunch of innovators, who are self-reliant and focused. They are constantly mastering their craft and developing their own niche. There is another kind of breed here; Creatively insane ones. These guys do same things differently, act differently and dare to think beyond the surface. A relatively young breed of entrepreneurs today own most of the startups. Most of these are school drop outs, set on a mission to feed their own passions.
Predictably so, these creatively insane minds rock the market. That’s because they have what it takes to stand out from the rest. You’re just 7 steps away from being there. Imbibe these thoughts, and chances are you may be on the path of doing something super creatively insane!
1. Discover Their CALLING
Take a little time off and do some real thinking. List down all your passions. Think of what lifts your spirits high, gives you immense happiness and yet ensures productivity. We are all blessed with talents that are waiting to be utilized into worthy pursuits.
2. Think About a Successful Neighborhood
Surrounding yourself with a bunch of successful people will help you connect with their traits and values. The qualities they exhibit and their motivational zest will foster your growth and thinking abilities too.
3. Craft Their Creative EDGE
Innovation is not only a habit for entrepreneurs, but also the prime resource to face and tackle adverse situations. Entrepreneurs who make groundbreaking developments with their ability think beyond limits. For instance, late Steve Jobs had only explored the digital market with a visionary flair, but his innovative edge has indelibly given us seamless technology.
4. Risk IT Once In a While
Successful entrepreneurs venture out of their corporate jobs, drop out of schools and colleges, only to make sure that their ideas found a platform to click. They are simply not happy and satisfied with the mundane routine. Imagine this; if it weren’t for Mark Zuckerberg, we wouldn’t have been able to connect with friends/relatives and the world as such via Facebook. His idea has not only bridged geographical barriers, but also connected us with people coming from different walks of life.
5. When You Think BIG, You Yield BIG
What you sow is what will be reaped. As simple as that. Be a visionary of the future and not the resident of present. No man ever made history with small dreams. YouTube, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter etc. are perfect examples of visionaries who dared to dream big by transforming a simple idea.
6. Don’t Let THEIR Opinion Derail You
Success comes with its own baggage. There will be Nay Sayers all over the place, waiting to pull you down. While some of your near ones are going to be genuinely happy, your opponents might be stressing on how luck favored your success. They might not agree with your ideas and visions, but don’t let that play the wrong chords inside you.
7. Optimism Should Be Your ONLY Mantra
While setbacks can bog you down, fretting over the same won’t fetch you success. Staying put is a hidden asset that you must possess. Who better than J.K Rowling can cite this point to us? Despite being rejected by scores of publishing houses, she didn’t give up. Her optimistic approach has catapulted her stories in fiction to a different high.
The thought of being self-employed can entice you, but the inculcating attributes of an entrepreneur require focus and determination, and that at an invariable level. They put in tremendous energy; think uniquely, leaving no stone untouched.
Be the maverick, Be the creatively insane.
Running a successful start-up is no cake walk (and those of us who are in this business, know it). There’s a fair amount of discipline, drive and dedication involved that propels individuals into action, gives them the confidence to find their way around hurdles, and catapults them towards victory.
