Are you struggling to make your business strive? No matter how hard you try?
Now, the obvious thing is to just throw in the towel! Because for months or years you haven’t seen a return in investment (ROI) and your loved ones are concerned.
But don’t give up, at least not yet!
It could be something else.
Let’s talk about it:
As an aspiring or established entrepreneur, you need to understand that you are not a one dimensional being. You have at least two dimensions. An outer and an inner. This can be best described as characteristics. But today’s focus is on your inner characteristics. Because your inner characteristics are the innate drive that can make your business a phenomenon.
What are ‘characteristics’?
They are the features or qualities that belong to an individual, such as integrity, resilience, compassion, etc.
Why are characteristics important?
Your characteristics speak volumes. It gives you an edge, allowing you to shine and excel. However, often many fail to recognize these innate strengths, but this can change if you commit to self-cultivation.
Here are 5 characteristics needed to grow your online business:
This is important because you must believe in your capabilities, such as your strengths and talents. In order, to leverage in the market. Therefore, being ignorant and complacent will not help.
Being a business owner, you’ll need to have a thick skin, take rejection and learn how to rise above obstacles. The good news is, you already have this resilience, but you just haven’t realized it. It’s been proven that most start-ups turned their failures into successes. For example, Henry Ford’s business went bankrupt twice and look at where the company is today.
To strive in business, you’ll need to have a creative mind, to make the impossible possible. Enjoy inventing bespoke and mind-blowing content, that’s not known to others. And have a passion for authenticity.

Without goals, a business will perish!
That is why it’s no surprise successful entrepreneurs are goal-oriented. You need to know how to set goals and enjoy achieving them.
5. Risk taker-
Business is not without risks. And to survive on the market, you should be cautious. However, life is full of risks. And guess what? We still take them! We cross the road, drive cars, fly in airplanes, etc. Thus, in order to triumph, you’ll need to be able to take risks.
Fun fact: 70% of small businesses are owned and operated by a single person (United States small business association)
Mirror to mirror:
Building a strong and lasting empire takes commitment. No one starts at the top. The new kid on the block takes time to build credibility and trust. You must learn how to deploy your inner strengths, use your psychological resources and follow your instincts. Don’t be moved by fear or doubt. Entrepreneurs, believe in your idea and stay focused to the end, regardless of the naysayers!
And remember, you have what it takes to be amazing
Until next time….
