Entrepreneurs face many challenges and obstacles on the road to success and what separates the successful from the unsuccessful is their ability to overcome them, say Source Marketing Direct.
Research reveals that success in life is driven by one vital distinction; whether individuals believe that failure is produced by personal deficits beyond their control or seen as an opportunity to fix things through effort. Hector Montalvo of Source Marketing Direct says: “Successful entrepreneurs see challenges rather optimistically and treat failure as a learning experience. They get back up on their feet and try as long as it takes to achieve their goals.” In fact, this mind-set is a sign of emotional intelligence.
People approach obstacles in different ways. Hector Montalvo, a successful entrepreneur and Managing Director of Source Marketing Direct embraces challenges and looks for ways to overcome them. “The past few years have taught me a lot. It hasn’t always been easy. However, it feels so good once you overcome a difficult situation. It’s a constant learning process and personal development,” explains Hector Montalvo.
Some people find it challenging to maintain a successful mind-set. Source Marketing Direct unveil what the seven most common challenges are that can hold people back.
Society often tells people that they are too young or too old to do things. Successful people do not let age stand in their way. “A number doesn’t define what you are capable of,” says Hector Montalvo of Source Marketing Direct.
2. What others think
When someone has a good feeling about what they have done, they should not let other people’s opinions take that away from them.
3. Negative people
Source Marketing Direct say: “We choose to be surrounded by positive and like-minded people who have the same mind-set as we do. Negative people may try to bring you down and stop you from what you want to accomplish.”
Fear is a choice and doubt is the greatest thief of opportunity, says Source Marketing Direct. Successful people are addicted to this emotion. The uncomfortable rush of adrenaline creates a euphoric feeling which helps them overcome difficult situations.
Some people like to complain. Hector Montalvo of Source Marketing Direct says: “Complaining doesn’t get you anywhere. Successful people look for solutions to make things happen.”
6. Past and Future
Accepting the past is important in order to move on to something great. Accepting the uncertainty of the future takes the fear away to step out of that comfort zone.
7. Things that cannot be controlled
There are people who always find reasons not to proceed due to things they cannot control, such as a financial crisis, fragile economies, environmental disasters, the weather or attacks. Instead of finding excuses, Source Marketing Direct recommend people to focus on the things they actually can control.
