It has been observed beyond doubt that most successful entrepreneurs share common traits and qualities. There seems to be likely commonality in their behaviours. 

To be successful, their is need to learn from the lives of already successful people. If you wish to be a Successful entrepreneur, a study of the following traits exhibit by most successful entrepreneurs will help you to know if you are ready for the journey. This is because entrepreneurship is a long journey. You will need to pass through different phases of challenges to arrive at success. 

Below are some common traits widely shared by most successful entrepreneurs. Before venturing into enrepreneurship, it is important you take time to examine yourself to see if you already have those qualities or will need to develop them.

1. Passion

Most successful entrepreneurs are not driven by money or personal gains, they are driven mostly by passion. It is either they have strong passion for their products, services, or they want to help solve a social problem. Their initial interest of most successful entrepreneurs does not lie on the gains. Take for example Jan Koun who founder of WhatsApp messenger, his prior aim was to create a platform in which people can be connected easily through messaging. Today, he is a muti billion dollar entrepreneur. 

2. Determination

Another wonderful trait that successful entrepreneurs share in common is determination. Entrepreneurs are more determined than anybody you can ever think of. Their keenness to succeed makes them to be very focus on their goals. They usually set goals for themselves and do stick to those goals. No amount of distract can shift the focus of an entrepreneuristic person from his or her goals. Even when they are hit with failures, entrepreneurs persistently weather out of those failures through success. 

3. Open to Knowledge 

Successful entrepreneurs invest so much of their time in learning new things, new methods, new styles, new strategies, and so on. They understand very well the saying  that "readers are leaders". They are also very open to peoples' opinions, suggestions and feedbacks. They improve their businesses using market information that they gather mostly from customers. Entrepreneurs are not in the categories of people that feel they know it all. To them, every idea is worth listening to. Their successes most of the time come from their ability to incorporate the recommendations of their customers on product or service improvements. 

4. Risk Takers

Risk is an inevitable part of business. While some people don't want to use their ear to hear about the Word risk, entrepreneurs see it as a must take activity. I have never seen a successful entrepreneur who rose to the ladder of success without a measurable amount of risk. They are not afraid of venturing into a business with little or no capital at their disposals. They see opportunities in every risk. The fear of failure does not deter an entrepreneuristic person from trying out something new. 

5. Self-Confidence 

Entrepreneurs believe so much in themselves and what they do. They do not entertain inferiority complex at all. Self-confidence is a very Important entrepreneurial trait. You will need to believe in your self, your products or services before others can believe. Self-confidence plays a vital role in marketing your products or services. As we know that an entrepreneur is the jark of all trade. He does almost all the Important roles of his business himself. To convince people to do business with him, he will need to build self-confidence. Most successful entrepreneurs of our time share this trait. They believe so much in themselves and what they do.

6. Adaptability 

Most successful entrepreneurs are easy adaptable to changes. They prepare themselves ahead for the changing business environment. They can quickly adjust to the tastes and preferences of their customers. Entrepreneurs do not wait for competition to consume them before adjusting to market changes, they reacts as they notice slight changes in the business climate. 

7. Competitive Spirit

Most successful entrepreneurs I have come across are highly competitive in nature. They strive to carve a share of the market for themselves. The business environment is a very competitive one, it is saturated with numerous products and services. It takes a competitive spirit to survive in such environment. Entrepreneurs are highly competitive and that is why they succeed. 

8. Financial Experts 

Successful entrepreneurs are good financial managers. They don't work for money but get money to work for them. They avoid overspending and other poor financial decisions. They try to allocate money to those areas of their business that yields more profits. They know when to stop investing in a particular business so as to avoid idle money on stocks.
