    Key to secretIf you have ever thought about working for yourself, or have leaned back in your cubicle, dreaming about life outside of the corporate drudgery, then you have wondered what exactly does it take to become an entrepreneur? What do you need to do to escape the 9-to-5, to fire your boss, and wander over to the land of the self-employed.

    Successful entrepreneurs all follow the same basic principles. Sure, there are a myriad of ways to strike forth on your own when it comes to being self-employed, but you must follow the same basic principles and be fully aware of what’s ahead of you, before you even start.

    Probably the three most important elements that you must address are vision, passion and focus. These are three of the most important secrets revealed by successful entrepreneurs.

    As the road to self-employment success is paved with potholes, you must ensure that you’re passionate about what you are doing. You must ask yourself why you are doing it, what you’re hoping to achieve. Your passion will help you to get through the difficult times. Passion will ensure that you do not mind working those lengthy hours. There will be no more 9-to-5, it is more likely to be 9-to-9 or even more! Maintain your passion, be crazy like a fox, and this will ensure that you stay on the road towards that target.

    You must be able to dream it, to live your dream in your mind. Vision is essential as without it you will not be able to maintain your passion or your focus. When you were sitting in a cubicle, you must have had a vision for the future — where you want to go in life. You need to be able to almost touch it, to have a really tangible vision, so that your hard work as an entrepreneur will carry you to that goal. Conjure up some examples of where you want to be, picture the good life. If you want to have material things, like a brand-new Ferrari, or an oceanfront home, print out pictures of those items and put them where you can see them on a daily basis.

    Whilst vision and passion are important elements, you must also be focused. Realize that you can’t be all things to all men, nor a “jack of all trades and master of none”. Know what you are good at and focus on it. Get other companies or individuals to help you in areas that you are not expert at. This focus also means that you will not accept failure as an option.

    All entrepreneurs who are successful share these same traits, these are the secrets to their success. It all started out with a vision, a clear picture of where they wanted to go and what they wanted to achieve. They exhibited passion, did not mind hard work, and were always enthusiastic about their business. Successful entrepreneurs are always focused once they have started their journey, and never look back!

    What are the secrets to your success?

    1. Rich Brained Millionaire June 19, 2009 at 1:39 am #

      People work an average of 40 hrs. a week at their full time job. Guess what, real Rich-Brained Millionaires work none. Why is this? because rich-brained people don’t consider what they do “work”.

      One of the key attributes of all Rich-Brainers is passion. You need to have passion and thourough enjoyment of what you are doing to be successful. If you hate what you do for a living, don’t expect to ever be truly successful at it. If you love what you are doing, and truly have a passion for it, you won’t consider it work. It will simply be your life.

      Now think about this: the average rich-brainer will spend close to 70 hrs a week on their projects. But they love doing it. Now put this into perspective. If you work 40Hrs a week at a job you hate, how many hours are you spending texting friends, watching the clock, surfing the net, or just plain wasting time. So we can easily say you are productive maybe 50% of the time. Now if you love what you are doing, you will be productive 100% of the time. Now do the comparison. 20Hrs vs. 70Hrs.That’s a huge difference, and its all possible with passion.

      I like this information because it is relevant with what I am doing right now. Actually, I have found what I looked for many years. I prefer working at any place I want and internet is the right tool for me. However, I still have to provide myself with some support facilities. I hope I can accomplish this year.

      My goal is to eventually just work for myself as a marketer. My specialty is online video and I think my dream will be true really soon. I’ve had okay results up until recently. I began posting short teaser videos to several video uploading sites.

      Thank you for the post. I concur from my own experience that the keys are vision, passion and focus. When I’ve strayed from those three things, or become confused by two competing ideas, and every self-employed has at one time or another, I’ve found my way back on track by returning to those fundamentals, the reason I set out on my own in the first place.
