4Ps of entrepreneurship
4 qualities to get seemingly impossible things done
Looking back at my 26 years of life, failures and successes, I have learned to deeply value these 4 qualities. If we all can just hold onto these 4 values, we can get things done, things which seem impossible to most.
We all know about these things, isn’t it? We do understand them. Well, knowing is not good enough. Practicing them is what makes all the difference. I knew it too but did not value them as much as I do now.
Here I am going to emphasize value of each one of them and hope it helps you take action to get better in each one of these qualities.
Persistence defines who you are, what you really care about
Are you different just because you had that awesome idea of changing the world? Let me tell you one thing, each one of us(7 billion) want to do something big, to change the world, to disrupt, to lead.
In some ways we start working on those big goals. Then we face problems. Then we fight. Then more and more problems starts coming in. Then we give up. This is what an average person does. But we do also give heroic status to people who failed multiple times and then succeed, we do respect them. People are out there who will have similar goals like yours, even better resources. What would be the no.1 thing that you can do to win, persist more than any other person for that specific goal. That’s the toughest part.
I urge you to keep doing what you believe in, moving towards your goal, inch by inch, no matter what! If you can survive more than an average person, you get what most wouldn’t. Do you have persistence that can make you stand out from the crowd?
Always be positive, no matter what. There’s no other choice. You have to find positives even in situations where no-one else can. This positivity will give you energy needed to get things done. Remember, positivity and negativity both are infectious.
- With negativity you’ll not be able to do the simplest tasks
- With positivity you’ll be able to solve the toughest problems
Be fucking passionate. Passion is the fuel you need to get things done. Passion is infectious as well, passionate people inspire passion in others.
If you think you don’t have one, develop one. How? Be curious, think about things that you really care about, invest your time in taking actions to know more about it and doing something about it, act like it is your passion. Then see how much you can push yourself for this one thing. Ask yourself
Are you willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it?
Things that you are naturally passionate about will stick with you. That brings us to the last point.
We overestimate what we can do in a year and underestimate what we can do in 5 years
- Bill Gates
If you really want something, you will keep doing things to achieve it, no matter what and one day you’ll achieve the goal.
If you’re wondering why these 4 things only? I do not have any logical answer to that. From my experience I believe these are the things which can build a great foundation of ourselves.
