Are you struggling to succeed in business? Do you feel like your career is bland or that you're dreams are dying inside of you? Take 20 minutes to listen as I share the 4 personalities that will KILL your business success.
While most of the known business world is telling people what to become, this episode of the StartupCamp.com podcast will tell you what to avoid.
Here are the four personalities that NEVER succeed in business:
1. The Unfinisher
These people are addicted to starting. They fight hard in the beginning but soon find themselves burned out when the rubber meets the road. They’re not necessarily scared as much as they are infected with shiny-object-syndrome. They love excuses and they have five or six unfinished projects going at any given time. But at the core, we all know what the problem is… they lack the discipline and stamina to cross the finish line. An important trait required to succeed in business.
2. The Selfish Partner
Selfishness might be the deadliest threat to a partnership. These people search for easy going worker-bees who they can walk over, manipulate, and abuse to move their personal agenda forward. There is no win-win. Only one hero. While these people are not horrible in every situation, they are horrible for partnerships.
3. The Executive Liar
In his pursuit of the corporate ladder, this guy will lie, cheat and steal to get to where he needs to be. For some reason he believes morals and business are separate. When he gets called out, he responds with the classic, “It’s just business, not personal”. But we all know, a sleazeball at work is a sleazeball at home. If this guy is your boss, look out… he’s dangerous. While he won’t be there long, you don’t want to become part of his wake of destruction. It might be time to consider a career change.
4. The Fearful Entrepreneur
She’s had a dream for years. Her idea is good and we all know she has what it takes to make it work. Or at least give it a solid shot. But she can’t. Her desire for security and lack of faith drive her into a corner every time. She can’t seem to overcome the unknown and the window of time to chase her dream is closing quickly with every year she ages. She had everything it took to change the world, but fear killed her dream before it had a chance.
