Inspiration is the fuel that motivates achievers. Where they find that valuable energy is an enlightening story of individuality.
There are as many different answers to that question as there are the many different types of entrepreneurs. But one consistent trait seems to run throughout the entrepreneurial consciousness — independence.
Entrepreneurs are a breed apart in the first place, so the things or people that inspire them are wonderfully diverse. Here’s a sampling of what some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs say gets them motivated and moving forward.
- Passionate people – It’s no surprise that entrepreneurs who are passionate about their work should be inspired by other like-minded passionate people. Mentors and role models play a significant part in what they do.
- New opportunities – Independent self-starters thrive on new opportunities and are on the lookout for the next ‘big thing’. They are inspired by people who think this way.
- Audacious ideas – A motivated entrepreneur sees endless possibilities, so an idea that might seem cheeky to some is only an inspiration to them.
- Getting involved in the community – The movers and shakers who get things done are heavily invested in making their communities better. Successful entrepreneurs in this category know the hard work pays off.
