The Healthy Wealthy Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is not just about starting a business it’s a way of thinking…
Yes I really believe this, if you look at the original definition of the word entrepreneur, it’s a French word that means ‘to undertake’ – entrepreneurship is an undertaking. My belief is that there is no greater undertaking that your life’s purpose.
Entrepreneurship is a mindset and this mindset should not be exclusive to those who want to run a business. You can be entrepreneurial when you are employed, this means, thinking outside your normal thought patterns, dealing with setbacks, communicating, having a solution first mindset, collaborating with other team members from different departments, coming up with innovative ideas to more the business forward, even if it is not part of your immediate responsibilities. Entrepreneurial thinking allows you to not come from a ‘this is how it’s done mindset’ but from a ‘what could we do different mindset’
The healthy wealthy entrepreneur does not settle, they don’t allow negativity to get in the way. They note the little voice in their head then ignore it.
They also look at their whole life, their physical health, their daily habits and routines, their thoughts, their financial wellbeing and their personal relationships.
You may have heard of the wheel of life, you score yourself in all these areas, career, finance, personal growth, family, relationships, health, hobbies and give yourself a score out of ten on these various areas and see how balanced your life is.
To live a healthily wealthy entrepreneurial life I have identified 6 components that are practical areas all entrepreneurs, whether you run your own business or work for an organisation, would focus on to have rounded success.
These are the 6Ms of Entrepreneur Success.
The healthy wealthy entrepreneur is aware, courageous and adventurous. A great hero of mine Gary Vaynerchuk talks about getting the bigs things sorted but also being aware what needs to get done that ensures it all works, watch this great video ‘Between the Clouds & Dirt’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4bAVgMJo8w
