16 Reasons Why Successful Entrepreneur Never Quit
#1
Winners never quit & quitters never win.

Once is a while we need to revisit our reason for entrepreneurship to feel motivated again. Everyone gets tired but there will always be a reason to carry on.

16. They Admire Other Entrepreneurs
Successful people inspire other people to become successful. These hopefuls believe that becoming an entrepreneur will allow them to network with people who have already built great businesses. They think that they have enough potential to find the next profitable idea and change the lives of millions. Seeing someone with nothing grow to become a successful businessperson is enough for these aspiring entrepreneurs to save up money to start their own businesses.

15. They Don’t Want to Have A Boss
Some people struggle with respecting authority. They don’t like the reality of having people in superior positions managing their work and looking over their shoulder. Not having the final say in important decisions turns them off, so they seek opportunities where they can have more control over business operations. Even though they don’t like authority figures, they believe that becoming their own boss is the only way that they can do work effectively and happily.

14. Can’t Handle a 9-to-5 Job
The reality of working an average job doesn’t seem rewarding to aspiring entrepreneurs. Having to finish unfulfilling tasks seems really boring to them. Getting coffee and greeting nice co-workers every morning gets boring after a while. The repetitive and routine nature of working 9 to 5 doesn’t feed their burning passion for creativity and innovation. They feel like they are simply doing what society expects of them instead of making a difference in the world. It’s through starting their own business that they get to freely express their creative ideas and fulfill their dreams.

13. They Like Risks
Building a successful business takes a lot of risk, and entrepreneurs love risks! They live for excitement and adventure. Brainstorming new ideas and gambling their chance of succeeding in their target market gives them goosebumps. They look to manage projects with high stakes because they have enough confidence to execute them. Whether these projects become million dollar success stories or complete failures that they regret, it’s the act of betting on an idea and watching it develop that makes aspiring entrepreneurs smile.

12. They Just Have No Other Choice
Some people become entrepreneurs because they see it as a mandatory journey to take. Their prior experience in the job market or achievements in education makes them realize that working for others is no longer a life suited for them. A fire in their hearts tells them that they have a strong purpose in the world that surpasses the reality of being an employee. Entrepreneurs are driven with the need to succeed and control their own destiny. Owning a business gives them no limitations on the profit and opportunities that they can gain.

11. Their creativity doesn’t fit the corporate environment.
You may find that you simply don’t fit in. Sometimes that can feel frustrating, however, if you learn to embrace not fitting into a corporate culture the way many of your friends and family do, you can discover something beautiful. Steve Jobs perhaps summed this idea up best when he said: “When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is ... Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it … Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.” Your creativity simply may not be cut out for the limitations of corporate life.

10. They want a lifestyle that isn’t bound to nine to five.
There’s a lot of hype about having a flexible lifestyle but the truth in entrepreneurship is that you’re going to work really hard and really long, so don’t choose this way of life if you’re thinking it’s a shortcut. That being said, you will work hard, but there’s much more flexibility to the entrepreneurial lifestyle than the traditional nine to five and two weeks of vacation time that corporate life permits. As the old adage goes, entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t. It is hard work but with that effort comes the ability to shape your life how you see fit.

9. They’re passionate about learning.
Learning should never stop. Many people equate age, status or certain achievements with the end of their education, but to learn is to be alive. Entrepreneurs are never satiated with the knowledge they have -- they are always seeking more. If you find that learning interests you, from formal education to on-the-job discoveries, and that you can never know enough about the things that excite you, then you have identified one of the genuine reasons individuals are driven to be entrepreneurs. As mega-successful entrepreneur Michael Gerber says: “The entrepreneur in us sees opportunities everywhere we look, but many people see only problems everywhere they look. The entrepreneur in us is more concerned with discriminating between opportunities than he or she is with failing to see the opportunities.”

8. Their ideas are unconventional.
Entrepreneurship takes imagination and perhaps even a dash of insanity. Entrepreneurs are the ones who change the world. They see the world as they want it to be, not how it is. From the genius idea that drove the Wright Brothers to create a flying machine to the madness that drove Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to develop personal computers, entrepreneurs pursue the ideas that others deem crazy. Albert Einstein said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Entrepreneurs intrinsically understand that logic is limiting but unconventional ideas can change things.

7. They want to do things.
Entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki said, “The best reason to start an organization is to make meaning -- to create a product or service to make the world a better place.” The exploration of meaning and doing work that changes the world is something that drives every entrepreneur. If you find yourself unsatisfied with a life that relegates you to the sidelines or the background, entrepreneurship may well be the right path for you. Entrepreneurs learn by doing and explore with a voracious appetite. If the status quo is too simple for you, you understand one of the genuine reasons people choose entrepreneurship.

6. They want to change the world.
Entrepreneurs don’t just want to change their lives -- they want to change the world. Mark Twain explained the lure of entrepreneurship best when he wrote, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 

5. The opportunity to control your destiny.
When you work a 9-to-5 you’re at the mercy of your boss and the company you work for. They can decide to hire or fire you, they decide how you spend your eight hours every day and what happens in those eight hours affects you beyond that time. You have little control and in exchange, they give you a paycheck. The problem is today’s economy. Gone are the days of working at a company for years and retiring with a pension. These days entrepreneurship is the new pension plan. Your income is too important to leave in the hands of someone else.

4. Unlimited earning possibilities.
At a job, your earning potential is set by the job or a contract a union negotiated. You can get raises and promotions, but those are the exception, not the rule. Your earning potential is capped no matter how long you stay at that job. To be fair, you could earn nothing at your business, but those who jump into entrepreneurship are self-motivated to build a profitable business. Entrepreneurs aren’t happy with the status quo and continue to grow their business and income. The beauty of entrepreneurship is that there are no gatekeepers to keep your income regulated.

3. Location independence.
The beauty of having your own business is the ability to create something that supports you no matter where you are in the world. There are more than 2.5 billion people online daily, which means you could have an unlimited customer base and build a location-independent, online business. No longer do you have to be tied down to any one location. You can have freedom to be where you want. This is great because different environments can foster innovation and creativity. Last year I got to travel to 12 countries all over the world and still made money. You just can’t beat that.

2. The chance to leave a lasting legacy.
When you build your dream business it can carry on to your kids and their kids. What starts as a quest for freedom can end as something that’s in your family for generations. A company like Ford has been passed down through the generations and continues to impact lives.  If your business is started out of something your passionate about, that passion will impact lives for years and generations. You can leave your children something you’re proud of. We live in a time when we can use technology and the Internet to create the business and life we love. It’s not going to be easy and it will take time, but it is possible. If you're thinking about making the leap, make sure you're prepared. You don't want to turn your dream into a nightmare. Have an emergency plan, just in case. Have a clear plan for your business and a plan for growth. Have a plan to market your business that goes beyond the cliches. Don't jump into this world until you understand what it involves. We're celebrating a New Year and another chance to do all the things you've wanted to do in life. Here's to you and your success.

1. Freedom to spend your time doing what’s important to you.
Life is short and time is the one thing we’ll never get back. This makes time one of your most valuable resources and you should treat it accordingly. Entrepreneurship gives you the ability to balance your time. If you have family or other life circumstances come up, you can decide to forgo any work for that day. You don’t have that kind of flexibility at a job. Your work should fit into your life, not the other way around. The life part has to come first.

Actually true to that.

Look at how Apple started without money and desperately knocking the bank's door.

Even Alibaba also running out of money when the final investor came in.

Just don't quit my friends!
