How Entrepreneurial Possibility Can Help Build Your Career

The word ‘Entrepreneur’ is banded around a lot these days, and it’s a label many like to give themselves without truly knowing what it means.  There are many characteristics that make up a true entrepreneur, but one that I think is crucial is the ability to see possibility.  This important ingredient is one that every professional can learn to master and use to feed themselves to get ahead in their career.  Here’s why…

Feed Yourself

I recently came across ‘A Love Note To Entrepreneurs’ that says: –

Do your best work
Touch one person

Make a different to a handful

Build a legacy, not just an empire

Keep your values front and centre

Launch ideas from the heart

See the world as it isn’t

Make passion your master

Allow possibility to feed your soul

All of these lines hit home for me, but the last one is where I see many of my clients fall down because they aren’t allowing themselves to see the possibilities ahead of them.

As a true Entrepreneur, it’s important to keep the blinkers off, giving yourself permission to explore opportunities and to think outside of the box.  Cliches aside, what this really means is that you leave the excuses and but’s at home, and instead go on a continual quest to look for other ways of doing things, and alternative options to help you achieve your goals.

What excuses have you been using lately that have quashed the possibilities in your career? Perhaps you’ve hit a few roadblocks and have given up, or maybe the path ahead of you is proving a little tough.  With an entrepreneurial mindset you would push pass these points, choosing to look for alternative possibilities instead.

What could you do differently?  Who could you ask for help?  How could you get a different result?  Asking smart questions, and forcing yourself to answer them, will help you move past your own mental blocks, and feed your mind with a good dose of entrepreneurial spirit.
