Research shows that the brains of entrepreneurs are wired differently than non-entrepreneurs. This makes them tend to be quicker in response to problems and less inhibited compared to the non-entrepreneurs.
Other studies also confirmed that entrepreneurs perform explorative tasks, using both the left and right sides of their pre-frontal cortex as opposed to managers or non-entrepreneurs who tend to use primarily their left side.
Although it’s unclear how much of one’s brain is wired for entrepreneurship at birth, but certainly nature and nurture contributes significantly to entrepreneurial capacity, thinking, drive, vision, restlessness, imagination, confidence, belief and energy etc.
However, for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to wire their brains for entrepreneurial wisdom, here are four possible capabilities to do so.
- Attention Dynamism – learn the power of focus, always keep your eyes on the ball, and always pay attention and focus like a flashlight.
- Whole-Person Capacity – you must see your work as your life and your life as your work. Life and work are intertwined and inseparable for entrepreneurial success.
- Strategic Precision – ability to always challenge yourself and change your course of action based on what circumstances dictate.
- Genuine Cooperation – learn how to plug into the power of the social brain for more effective collaborations at all levels. This is critical for your entrepreneurial journey.
To succeed as an entrepreneur, you must learn to bring all of your internal and external resources to your venture and be willing to work not less than 80 hours a week in the first formidable years of your venture.
As you practice and mature in your entrepreneurial journey, you will be wired to think differently – from quick response to problems, to easy identification of opportunities than non-entrepreneurs.
Finally, you will indeed uphold the fact that life and work are intertwined and inseparable for your success and indeed the reward for work is simply to work more!
