The 6 P’s of the Entrepreneurial Spirit

The 6 P’s of the Entrepreneurial Spirit
  1. Passion. Passion cannot survive without a path.
  2. Path. This is your plan for getting there, at the pace you set.
  3. Positivity. No success is possible without cultivating an optimistic perspective.
  4. People. Without the power of people around you to support you, mentor you, and otherwise love you, your passion will fall flat and your plan will never get done.
  5. Perseverance. None of these P’s will work if you don’t fuel them with perseverance and hard work.
  6. Productivity - how you use your time to make it count. Productivity pulls all of the other P’s together and enables you to love your life.

When lifelong dreams crumble

When lifelong dreams crumble

All of us have hopes and dreams for the future that become part of our identity. But then reality gets in the way. Your passion may fade, or the obstacles to realising the dream ma...

Come to terms with your decision

As you let go of your dream, you may fear you're making a mistake.

  • There's no calculus for knowing when to give up. If pursuing your dream comes at great personal cost to your relationships and other goals in life (which is different from a 'harmonious passion'), that would suggest it was wise to give it up.
  • Success is not all or nothing. You may not have fulfilled your dream, but you likely learned much along the way, giving you a chance to redirect your energy and passions in new ways.

Goal adjustment capacity

Psychologists see goal adjustment capacity as a beneficial form of 'self-regulation' or 'self-management.'

It contains two parts:

  1. The ability to disengage from fruitless goals
  2. The ability to know when and how to change to new, more productive goals.

Those who are flexible and adaptable are generally happier, perform better. They often get promoted. If you are thinking of giving up your dream, it suggests you have a healthy willingness to adjust and adapt.

The journey is the destination

We never arrive. We work hard to succeed, and then we have to work twice as hard to maintain that success.

It’s a slow grind. And it starts with our mindset.

Don’t rely on your talent

We all have some type of talent, something that sets us apart from the rest of the world. This can also be a potential trap.

Never just rely on your gift or talent alone. Work on your craft. Investigate your weaknesses and make an effort to minimize them.

Trying to be the best 

Trying to be the best at one thing isn’t the smartest path to success. Instead, you should put your effort into mastering a combination of skills.

How skill stacking works

It’s easier and more effective to be in the top 10% in several different skills — your “stack” — than it is to be in the top 1% in any one skill. 

Skill stacking is the strategy of combining several normal skills to create a combination of abilities, that will make you extraordinarily valuable.

Your special skill stack

In discovering your own skill stack, consider the combination of skills. You want them to be related in some way, but not too similar.

The best skills to choose are those that don’t tend to go together but complement each other well.
