Wrong Attitudes That Undermine Your Chances Of Success In Business by maicodon297(m): 11:35pm On Apr 13, 2017
You have most likely heard the phrase, "He has an attitude!"
This is usually a derogatory remark made about a person with a disagreeable attitude.
But the word 'attitude' is an important one when discussing entrepreneurship or business ownership. A good attitude...a good mindset can't insure success but a bad attitude and a bad mindset can certainly guarantee failure.
Here are some wrong attitudes that will absolutely guarantee failure in business:

I CAN WORK WHEN I WANT TO
Wrong, wrong, wrong! You can't just work when you feel like it. You have to expect to put in many long and very tedious hours of very hard work to make a new business enterprise succeed.

I CAN GET RICH QUICK!
You couldn't be more wrong and you are not only wrong but you are putting yourself in danger as well. There are bazillions of crooks out there who are waiting for their next easy mark and if you are looking for a quick way to get rich, you ARE the next mark. It is possible to make a very comfortable living with whatever business model you choose to go into, but if anybody ever tells you it is quick or easy, they are lying to you.

I DON'T NEED A BUSINESS PLAN FOR CERTAIN KIND OF BUSINESS
There you are...wrong yet again. Whether you're doing an online business or selling products and services offline, the same business principles that apply to online business also apply to brick and mortar business. It is therefore imperative that you have a plan for success that is based upon sound business principles.

WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR OWN BUSINESS, YOU DON'T HAVE A BOSS

Wrong again! You are your boss. If you aren't a good boss who sees to it that work is accomplished on time and in full, you will doom yourself to certain failure. Unless you are a boss who sets up a working schedule and establishes goals that must be met, you will find yourself working at a job under a boss who engages in doing those things that are unhealthy for a business and maybe for minimum wage. Deal with these wrong attitudes today and you'll be on your way to creating unstoppable business breakthrough.

Have an amazing day!

Hmm, interesting.

Does running your business like a hospital count? By that I mean working 24/7 just to boost profits and neglecting other important engagements?

for we Yorubas, whenever we gain little profits on business we just started, the next things are, to buy expensive car for personal use, get more wives/concubines and accept chieftaincy titles. After six months, the business go down, gbaaa.

Nice write up.


How do we describe some business owners, when you render a service to them they will found a fault no matter how small and take it as an excuse for not paying you.

How would you not develop some wrong attitude towards new people?
It makes one to be suspicious of everyone.


Kindly help on suggestions / ideas to handle these kind of people. Thanks.

As an entrepreneur I can relate with most of the thing listed here. Customers are king, they need to be pampered , cared for and most importantly be able to solve their problems.

You are right but not all customers need pampering, if you come to my shop with hope of misbehaving because you are my king, I will show the next door.
Big importers in Nnewi don't care about you with ur little cash, you have to behave or u go with ur money. Anyway, there are different types of businesses though.

avoid selling on credit, but if you can be kind enough to sell on credit, then you must be strong enough to get your money back at all cost because your business account must balance
