Entrepreneurs are a unique group of people. Not only do they think differently; they act differently. They draw on personality traits, habits, and mind-sets to come up with ideas that straddle the line between insanity and genius. But just because you’re an original thinker and came up with an idea to replace gasoline in cars doesn’t mean you’re cut out to be an entrepreneur.
If you ever wondered if you were an entrepreneur, check out the following list. You may not have all these traits or skills, yet if you have some, this is a pretty good indicator that you have what it takes.
1. You come from a family of individuals who just couldn't work for someone else.
2. You hate the status quo. You’re a person who is always questioning why people do the things they do.
3.You’re self-confident. Have you ever met an entrepreneur who was pessimistic or self-loathing? After all, if you don’t have confidence, how can others believe in you? Most entrepreneurs are very optimistic about everything around them.
4. You’re passionate. There will be times when you spend an excessive amount of time and do not make a dollar.
5. You don’t take no for an answer. An entrepreneur never gives up -- ever.
6.You could create unlikely partnerships from out of nowhere because of your ability to connect the dots.
7. You spend more time with your co-founder than your spouse or significant other.
8. You’re a logical thinker with ideas about how to correct problems and the overall situation.
9.You’re a people person. You have no problem communicating with people.
10. You’re a self-starter, meaning you don’t give up on a project until it’s completed.
Even if you don’t have all the above traits right now, you’ll probably develop more of them over time. After all, being an entrepreneur is a lifestyle, not a job or hobby.
