Attitude Adjustment

Ask yourself the following questions. If you answer yes to any of them, it may be time to develop your entrepreneurial attitude.

  • Do I hear my instincts guiding me but fail to listen?
  • When I walk into a business, do I see ways to improve it?
  • Do my big ideas seem like silly dreams better left unspoken?
  • Does it feel good when others look up to me at work?
  • Do I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who sees the "real" problem?
  • Do I think risk and problems are good things?
  • Am I not getting enough money and creative fulfillment from my work?
  • Is being ethical important to me?
  • Am I a rule breaker?
  • Do I own a business or wish I did?
