YOU HAVE ALL SORTS OF IDEAS AND A PLAN
Your brain is always in its active mode with all sorts of ideas. However, having a good idea is barely an indication that you are ready to be an entrepreneur. You have some preliminary plan in your mind knowing some basic steps to take without executing blindly.
If you always have this urge to come up with solutions with the problems you encounter in your job, and have successfully solved them so far, this could be a positive sign that you are ready to go out on your own.
YOU ARE CONFIDENT
Self-confidence can go a long way when it comes to entrepreneurship. It is a great sign when you’re not afraid of failure (which is possible in every business) and you believe in your ideas.
You are not afraid to encounter all those closed doors when you first start out. If failure and “no” sound scary to you, you may want to wait a little bit and develop your self-confidence. It is because being afraid can be detrimental to your business.
YOU POSSESS GREAT INTERPERSONAL SKILLS
We all know that interpersonal skills are critical to both of our personal life and business. It is an ability that allows you to communicate, negotiate and solve problems effectively. Interpersonal skills allow you to be a true leader in your own business.
Without interpersonal skills, you may not be able to lead a team and your business performance can suffer tremendously. If you do not have it now, don’t worry as interpersonal skills can be practiced, developed and finally possessed.
YOU SPEND TIME WORKING ON YOUR IDEAS OUTSIDE WORKING HOURS
You don’t stay overtime in the office for the sake of earning praises from your boss and being unproductive. You go to work on-time, and you leave on-time. This is because you have more important things to do outside the office.
You always know that you are not getting paid for those extra work helping other people building their business empire. So, you’d rather spend more time on yourself and develop your own skills, work on your ideas and start your idea with side hustle first, before you are ready to turn it into your own full-bloomed business.
YOU PRACTICE POWERFUL HABITS AND DISCIPLINES
Powerful habits and disciplines can catapult your business greatly. And of course, the bad ones can definitely break your business. Your positive habits are always those things that lead you to feel good mentally and physically.
Only with good health and vitality, you can be more focused, productive, creative and motivated. So if you have already had several good habits that you stick to every day, congratulations! It is a sign that you may be ready for this exciting entrepreneurial journey.
