Unusual signs you are a successful entrepreneur
In his cinematic role about Steve jobs, the American actor Ashtun Kutcher was rushed to the hospital, in his strict pursuit to play the role perfectly, the actor carried out the same lifestyle as Jobs’s including his strict diet which was based solely on fruits. Just after two days of sticking to the fruit diet, the actor was in the hospital suffering from excruciating pain, later on, he was diagnosed with pancreatic and digestive system malfunction, this may not be surprising to know if we learn that Jobs died as a result of pancreas cancer.
Regardless of the advantages or disadvantages of this diet, did it actually help Jobs in his marvelous works?
Does this question sound peculiar or maybe funny? A little…perhaps, but haven’t you wondered about the subtle unusual signs that might reflect your entrepreneurship success?
Let’s put aside the fruity diet and dive right into this topic which has been rarely under the spot lights.
Unusual signs that might reflect your entrepreneurship success:
You are often exhausted: Your view on the daily issues might exceed the view for anybody else which leaves you exhausted all the time, entrepreneurs take a lot of credit for shaping our brilliant world as it is today, everything that we ever thought of or haven’t, takes a root in the works of many entrepreneurs who had a vision beyond their times.
Entrepreneurs usually have a very detailed view on any given topic which is usually ahead of their time, this is not an only positive characteristic, it’s because of this view that the entrepreneur seek the chances and spot problems everywhere that it might cause them to feel drained, especially if all these issues and chances flood the entrepreneur all at once, and hence the entrepreneur might feel too overwhelmed and consumed in a matter that can be hard for others to fathom.
You feel lonely very often: having a sharp vision for opportunities and troubles and trying to solve them takes up most of the entrepreneur’s time day and night.
In addition, the entrepreneur spends the majority of their given time to develop their personality and\or the ongoing projects which results in great pressure, this might extend to affect the personal relationships, especially if their surroundings are not supportive or don’t view the entrepreneur’s work as important.
If you feel lonely, you are not alone in this, communicate with other entrepreneurs and try to share with them their methods to overcome this state to prevent it from hindering your general well-being. If this feeling is often felt, this might be a sign for your need for a family vacation.
You hate being told what to do: as an entrepreneur, you have a deep vision of your atmosphere with its opportunities and challenges, and with your fine abilities and your future to-do plans. You might reach a state where you can’t handle the opinions that don’t suit your vision, and this might add some pressure on your personal relationships sometimes. As an entrepreneur, try to explain your view for those trying to force their own upon you instead of shutting down into yourself, may be they will not understand precisely what your plan is, or may be eventually you can together come up with a more enhanced view working with a different scope than your own.
You are not afraid of taking risks: in your constant pursuit to advance, you might come across some inevitable difficulties and challenges. And as an entrepreneur you might believe in the the saying “if you don’t risk any, you risk all” and that’s why entrepreneurs meet outside their own comfort zones!
You probably feel the weight of the decision fatigue: back to Steve Jobs with a new example, do you recall him wearing anything but the high black collar shirt, blue jeans, and trainers? What about Mark Zuckerburg Facebook’s founder whom is often seen in a grey T-shirt? Some can only wonder why can’t a billionaire have more clothes, or rather a funnier wonder: does he have multiple closets filled with the same shirt?
You probably understand what Jobs and Zuckerburg went through to reach this state, as an entrepreneur they make an uncountable decisions on daily basis, most of them are very important (in addition to the great pressure they cast on), and as a result, these simple decisions like clothing or meal choices become so difficult or\and unimportant.
This state is known as Decision’s fatigue and as Wikipedia defines it: the difficulty to make decisions after having to make many decisions for a long time which causes the person to limit deciding on routine matters like clothing or diet to avoid the pressure of decision making, this often occurs to entrepreneurs, presidents, CEOs, and clients when flooded with too many options.
You use your valuable time to develop yourself constantly: as an entrepreneur, you use your time in fruitful activities, which sets your focus on certain topics, such as sports, chess, or reading.
Reading is a fixed routine for many entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jack Ma, and Waren Buffet no matter their hectic schedule.
And to finish off this with a great saying for Jack Ma, the founder of Ali baba for ecommerce: reading will give you the upper hand and a better start than your peers who don’t read, he who reads constantly has more chances to find and use in the to his own benefit.
