Five Truths About the Mindset of a Successful Entrepreneur

by Pat Flynn
Wow, 2018. It’s safe to say that this year is a big year for me. October marks the ten-year anniversary of starting my business, and on June 17th it’ll be ten years since I was laid off (not that I’m keeping track or anything!). In fact, there’s something special that’s going to be happening on June 17th, 2018—but I’ll save that for later. But . . . ten years.Read the full article

9 Successful People Who Were REJECTED 138 Times (Entrepreneur Motivation)

All successful people experience getting rejected at some point in their life. For some, like the famous people (and companies) in this video, it happens way more than others. Failures and rejections are a part of the process of building a successful business. So what's the key difference between those who win and those who lose? Perseverance and patience, more than anything. Want some entrepreneur motivation? Then watch this video and see who else you might know who experienced failure and rejection in their life, and check out what they were still able to accomplish. Personally, I've experienced rejection a ton, and I'm not just talking about when I was in high school trying to get a date. (Which never happened, lol) But really, since getting laid off in 2008, I almost gave up dozens of times while I was building my business because of not only what other people told me, but mainly because of what I told myself. Thanks to the support of my family, my mentors, and my growing audience, I've been able to stick with it. I look forward to the many more failures I'm going to experience, because I know it'll make me even more successful down the road. Also, be sure to comment below about a time in your life when you persevered through a tough time. It can be big, or small - but either way it'll be motivating for others here in the SPI community to read through.

"I'm Too Old to Start a Business" (Entrepreneur Mindset)

I recently had a coaching call with Richard, an aspiring entrepreneur who told me, "Pat, I think I'm too old to start a business." Watch the video to check out my exact response, and the examples I used of other business owners who started incredible successful businesses at an even older age than he was. It's not about how old you are. It's also not about how competitive a niche is. What matters is that you know you have something of value to offer an audience, a motivation to solve or at least help a person find a solution for a pain or problem they are having. You don't need to be above a certain age, or below one, to be able to become a successful business owner. -=-=-=-=- Subscribe to this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=smartpassiveincome -=-=-=-=- Want to learn more about the smart way to make money online and start a successful online passive income business (without ripping people off or being dishonest)?

Weird Entrepreneur Math 🤔

If you're an entrepreneur (or an aspiring entrepreneur), you're part of a different breed. You think differently than most people, which is a good thing, and potentially a not so good thing. It's good because it's that kind of thinking that helps us find new problems to solve, take risks outside of our comfort zone, and have fun stressing out over trying to build something that we've never built before. It's not so good because we often get in our own way, and there's a specific set of limiting beliefs that come into play when it comes to "entrepreneur math". There are certain numbers that are out of wack in our brains, and this kind of thinking can definitely get in the way of our success. It could even stop us from moving forward at all. I've experienced these first hand, and I wanted to pass this knowledge on to you so you can be aware that this happens, and know how to tackle these situations if they arise.
