Every #Entrepreneur Needs To Know These 3 Lessons To Achieve Lasting Success

To paraphrase Coach John Wooden, A leader is someone who can give correction without causing resentment. Here are three tips every leader needs to know for success: 

Know Who You Are, What You Stand for and Whose Team You Play For

“What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player. The main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to get caught up in either one. Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character.”

The same holds true in the game of work. A successful entrepreneur knows the game does not end when the buzzer goes off at 5pm. The entrepreneur feels the call and answers it. It’s not just a job. It’s a way of life, it’s a paradigm. You can become an entrepreneur/intrapreneur in your current job today by applying Coach Wooden’s principles. The basketball greats – the ones we love – played for the love of the game.

The secret to success: Dress it up any way that you want – call it karma, call it whatever you like – what you put out into this world returns to you.
