In this article, Rhett highlights six behaviors exhibited by successful people. Read his article for the details, and below are some additional thoughts on these six important behaviors.
  1. They are always learning.
    Learning how to learn, and understanding that you must be prepared to and enjoy continuous learning, is a must in today's world. This applies to the business owner and the career builder equally. A passion for learning - a curiosity for all things around us - is critical to successful entrepreneurship.
  2. They establish clear goals. 
    You should establish a clear vision for your future, and then support that vision with a plan and goals - both short-term and long-term. It's productive to establish personal goals and also business goals. Be flexible with your goals, and be willing to adjust as you make progress.
  3. They manage their time well.
    Effective time management is essential. There is simply not enough hours in the day to get it all done, so you must learn to prioritize and delegate.
  4. They have positive attitudes.
    A positive attitude not only keeps you properly motivated, but it also instills a sense of confidence and trust in those around you. A positive attitude is infectious. It's also about enjoying the journey, and not focusing so much on the results.
  5. They create a supportive network.
    Leveraging the support and advice of others whom you trust is indispensable. It's important to develop, foster and utilize a network of like-minded individuals who can help you along the way. It's also why working in partnerships can be so effective.
  6. They take calculated risks. 
    There is always an element of risk in every business venture. But the professional entrepreneur carefully analyzes the risk and rewards, and applies knowledge and experience to mitigate the exposure. What entrepreneurs believe is most "risky" is continuing to sit on the sidelines - and enduring the job that provides no real security.
