Rather, it is achieved through experience, knowledge and passion. Entrepreneurs have not been marked since birth; they are people who have made a series of good decisions in their businesses and lives. Therefore, entrepreneurs are not born, they are made. Entrepreneurs can start a business, even if they are starting with a general idea of why they want to offer a product or service to potential customers.
The word entrepreneur is borrowed from the French word “entreprendre”, which means to undertake. It shares similarities with a household word; the Sanskrit word Antha Prerna which means “self-motivated”. Some scholars of the 17th and 18th centuries even called her “a risk-taker”. The essence is that it is crucial to take the leap of faith if one wants to pursue entrepreneurship.
Calculated risks that are backed by responsibility and self-motivation are key to an entrepreneur's success. People are not born entrepreneurs, they become entrepreneurs. It all starts with the big picture. The mental image of what an individual seeks to achieve over a period of time.
You must first conceive a path before anything else and then set goals to establish it and make it a reality. A positive outlook must be constant, regardless of the chains that hold us back. The unshakable approach like that of a hawk must be exemplified to stay true to the vision despite the ups and downs. As an entrepreneur, I sincerely believe that entrepreneurs are made, they are not born.
Their passion and drive are created through fundamental change that leads them to success. Once this fundamental change occurs, an entrepreneur can work to achieve a level of mastery in their craft and work towards their goals. Entrepreneurs are made by their environment and by the observations they make within it. The greater the exposure to others who have succeeded, the greater the belief that the sky is the limit and the constant search to seek more.
If you have that feeling within you that you are destined for much more than you are currently doing, it is often the result of excessive belief and lack of trust is the reason you are not doing anything about it. This could suggest that if you still don't know exactly why you want to start a business, then maybe you shouldn't be an entrepreneur. True, the founders of today's leading companies were born with certain skills that made the business path easier for them. Most entrepreneurs I've worked with are always challenging themselves to achieve their next goal, whether it's starting a new company or mastering a new skill.
The second type of entrepreneur is one who has no resources or knowledge in terms of investments, but is full of ideas. These are the qualities that make an entrepreneur successful and these qualities are not always inherent, but can be acquired through education and experience. Businessmen belong to the exclusive group of people who break free from the crowd by opening the first doors to leave their claustrophobic paths. I began my fundamental change by reading books by entrepreneurs who were more successful than me and were where I wanted to be.
Once entrepreneurs create a fundamental shift to the path of entrepreneurship, there is still a long way to go. An entrepreneur is a person who establishes a business, assuming the risk and rewards of the company. In my experience of launching Kardia and 14 other impactful companies over the past four years, I have realized that the question of whether entrepreneurs are born or asked goes far beyond what most people think. Being an entrepreneur at a young age gives you a unique advantage, compared to adults starting businesses years after college or even during their retirement years.
Many business gurus say it's important for entrepreneurs to know their “why” to run a business. When you stray from this process and want to simply implement ideas to become an entrepreneur or make money, you often don't understand your own ability and most likely you will fail at some point in the journey, as you will face multiple failures and it will no longer make sense invest your life in it. Only after reading a vacation book that caused a fundamental change in his thinking, did he realize that he wanted to be an entrepreneur. Some of the best entrepreneurs I know are driven by reasons such as spending more time with their family, financial independence, the freedom to make their own decisions, creating a product or service that makes other people's lives easier, or being able to give back to their local community.
Keep in mind that this is not what makes someone own a business, but rather they build someone to understand the core of true entrepreneurship. . .
