Success -Ten Winning Traits!
No surprise - winning traits are common among high achievers.
Are you tired of schlepping to the beat of someone else's drum? Does the idea of being your own boss appeal to you?
Are you entrepreneur material?
There are ten common traits among winners and the most successful entrepreneurs.
Ten Winning Traits!
An Eye For Opportunity: Many entrepreneurs start by identifying a common need and using some basic elbow grease and imagination to deliver a solution.
Independence: Even though most entrepreneurs know how to work within a framework for the sake of profits, they enjoy being their own boss.
An Appetite For Hard Work: Most entrepreneurs start out working long, hard hours with little pay. They are driven by their vision so "hard work" to them is also just a matter of doing what they love and following their dream.
Self-Confidence: Entrepreneurs must demonstrate the winning trait of self-confidence in order to cope with all the risks of operating their own business. They are empowered with the knowledge that each barrier is placed in front of them for the purpose finding a way to knock it down and move forward.
Discipline: Successful entrepreneurs resist the temptation to do what is unimportant or the easiest but have the ability to think through to what is the most essential.
Judgment: Successful entrepreneurs have the ability to think quickly and make a wise decision. They possess the common sense and good judgement of asking others opinions, but after gathering all available information, they make their own decision.
Ability To Accept Change: Change occurs frequently when you own your own business. This is one of the most important traits as it provides freedom to the entrepreneur who thrives on change - they understand that change is opens the door to new opportuntity and growth.
Makes Stress Work For Them: On the roller coaster to business success the entrepreneur often copes by focusing on the end result and not so much the process of getting there. To be sure, this is one of the more difficult but necessary winning traits.
Need To Achieve: Although they keep an "eye" on profits, this is often secondary to the drive toward personal success.
Focus On Profits: Successful entrepreneurs always have the profit margin in sight. They know that their business success is measured by profits and their business survival is dependent on good cash flow.
How many of our ten winning traits do you possess? Do you belong to this entrepreneurial profile or would you rather maintain a more regular 9 to 5 job, pick up your paycheck every other week and leave the headaches to someone else? Most people, quite easily, choose the latter. They do NOT possess the winning traits of entrepreneurs.

You have probably heard the term "IQ" many times, and you probably know it has something to do with measuring intelligence.
I thought this was unbelievable, but it's true.

What People Say about the People They Work With Reflects on Themselves
Often, what people say about other people behind their backs is a nasty reflection on the talker. You might be surprised by what I heard from an IRS executive.
Clues for Success: Finding Answers Right in Front of Your Face
An old fable tells about a religious man and a flood. As the water began to rise, the man's neighbor came by in a boat and offered to take him to safer ground. He politely declined, "God will save me." When the water had risen up to his second floor windows, authorities came by in a rescue boat. They shouted impatiently at him to get into the boat, but he sent them off, saying, "God will watch out for me." Later, as he sat on his roof with water lapping at its edges, a military helicopter hovered above him; a rescue officer was lowered to bring him up into the aircraft. Again he refused . . . and later drowned. When he reached heaven, he was furious and demanded a meeting with God.

Changing Your Luck
In this week's New Age Notebook, I am going to address a subject that often comes up in the chat rooms: LUCK. Why is it that some people seem to be born with horseshoes up the wazoo while others battle an endless string of disasters and setbacks?Is there such thing as being born under a lucky star? Is it karma or a curse? While some are eternal victims of Murphy's Law: "if something can go wrong, it will.", others seem to be able to get away with murder and suffer no consequences at all.
Choice: Privilege, Opportunity and Responsibility

Listening - A Life Skill for Success!
When I decided to have my web site built, I discovered 5 web site designers whose portfolios I found professional and creative. On approach, four of them asked me to fill out time consuming forms detailing my needs and objectives but none took the time to call me. However, the fifth designer started his sell by calling, listening to my needs, asking questions and following up with a detailed proposal. He called again for feedback and asked further questions about my needs. It was this coupled with his professional approach why I decided he was the one I wanted to work with.
I'll be the first to admit that everyone has his or her own definition of success and what constitutes living a life with greatness.
Benefits To Having An Education
If you look back to the 70s and 80s, many people were able to get by without even having a high school diploma. You could get a labor job and make $20 an hour without much effort. These days, these jobs are much harder to acquire. Not getting some sort of post high school education these days is the equivalent of dropping out of high school 20 years ago.
