Without a doubt, success as a business owner is challenging. How do the best accomplish what they do? Here some of the best tools for successful entrepreneurs. Try these five attributes to propel your business success:

Don’t be afraid of mistakes. We are trending toward a zero-tolerance society, quick to point out every perceived mistake, slight, or error committed. We are all far from perfect and will make many thousands of mistakes over a lifetime. The key is not to let mistakes define who you are. Successful people, whether athletes or entrepreneurs, work hard at having a short memory for mistakes. In fact, mistakes are great learning tools for self-improvement, so you can go out and make bigger and better mistakes!

Don’t talk about it, do it. Nike made a great ad campaign on this idea a number of years ago. The fact is, there are talkers and there are doers. Talkers have great plans and big ideas that are short on execution. Doers transform the impossible into reality. How badly do you want to see your talk in action? Do it; don’t talk about doing it.

Network above your head. Learn to spend time with those who have already walked your path and have achieved the success you desire. Winners inspire you, improve your perspective, and in many cases, help shorten your learning curve. The most successful people realize success is not a limited resource. They enjoy helping others they respect achieve greater success. Be sure to have something to offer as well. If you are “all take and no give,” you will not last in that elevated network. Play above your head and grow into that level.

Ignore negativity. In the age of the offended, negativity rules the airwaves and social media. It has no purpose for successful people. Negativity is the siren song of those who are disappointed in their stance in life and only wish for success.

Have a love affair…with your job. When you have true passion about what you do, it’s not a job; it’s a labor of love. No one has ever achieved significant success without a complete passion for what they are doing.
