Starting a new venture and making it a thriving and a lasting one is a great deal of work which requires entrepreneurs with an innovative bent of mind, inherent drive, commitment, confidence fearlessness, passion and the will to nurture a vision.

The successful businessmen possess exceptional and unique traits. These can be acquired with setting goals and pursuing them with the right attitude and strategic planning. It helps if you have a role model to look up to. Positive thoughts play a great role in influencing one's mind and helps in focusing on one's goal. Success is achieved by those who are strong, persistent and those who believe they can make it.

Listed below are the three essential traits of a successful startup.


Business is all about realizing a meaningful dream. Following your dream with passion and reason is the only way to succeed and you will soon see it turning into business. Passion helps you stay enthusiastic about your work and its goals.

Be realistic about your plans and expectations. Motivate yourself first and it would become easy to motivate your team to achieve your goal. There is no fixed formula for success; it's the passion to achieve your goal with zeal and confidence which would make you a successful entrepreneur.


To succeed in business, you should be consistently persistent with the correct understanding of the word. You should be strong enough to keep on trying even after experiencing failures and obstacles. It is the drive within you and the passion to achieve your goals against all odds that would make you a successful leader.

Failure in business is not because of obstacles but because of failed persistence in the face of these obstacles. This is an acquired skill and can be gained with training. Move on with disregard to emotions, keep your goal in sight to be motivated, be flexible and not rigid and have faith and confidence in your abilities.

Rejections and negativity would flow from many quarters, but a strong belief in yourself and never give up attitude will definitely make you achieve your goals and dreams. Swim against the opposing currents and it will motivate you to fight for your goals. Know the success stories of successful people to strengthen your faith in persistence.

Decision Making

The key to success is to make the right decision at the right time with the right inputs related to the business venture. The decision taken should involve the team members to inspire confidence and motivate them. To make better decisions, the entrepreneur should be committed, quick, thoughtful and analytical.

To survive a crisis or a dilemma or in difficult situations, it is important to analyze the root cause and take an appropriate decision in the interest of the organization. Care and caution should also be taken to ensure that the decision is not apolitical.

So, to be a successful entrepreneur, one should convert one's passion into action and give a timeline for the implementation of the same.
