9-Have a Bad Influence :
The idea which says that you need someone who tells you tonot do things that are directly harmful to yourself or to others is totally wrong. Because you don’t really need that , what you need is someone in your life who genuinely believes in you and pushes you to take chances in your professional life , someone who really gets the old entrepreneur’s mantra, “Without risk, there is no reward.” You want a bad influence who will get you out of your rigidly conservative comfort zone and point you toward the risks that lead to success.
8- Work hard :
If you’re going to be successful, you need to work really hard. If you’re an entrepreneur, you already know that the nine to five workday does not apply to you. While you need to strike the right work-life balance for your own life, you’ll definitely need to put a lot of weight on the work side of the equation. To borrow an old adage, hard work never hurt anyone. And, to quote Thomas Edison, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” If you want something, you need to work for it.
7- Create the future :
Bill Gates has always been an innovator and innovation is key to success. Think about it: time rolls on, with or without you. If you’re going to be successful in your field, you need to get on board and look ahead. Creating for the now will all but ensure eventual failure. Create for tomorrow, and you all but ensure your longevity.
