5 Reasons why an Entrepreneur is like a Jedi

So for the last week my son has discovered the wonderful world of Star Wars, we have been watching them as a family and I have actually been enjoying them, but and I found myself noticing a lot of similarities between the Jedi and  true Entrepreneurs.

1. ‘Do or Do not, there is no try’ – Yoda

When you begin to think about creating your own future you need to also begin to change your mindset and work on overcoming any negative thoughts. If you are going to build your own Business you need to either embrace it whole heartedly or not at all.

2. Jedi are all powerful and can convince people to do things

As an Entrepreneur if you  are selling yourself as a brand or selling products it pays to be personable to others, a great communicator  and truly believe in your product so others believe in it too.

3. Jedi play for the right side of the force and believe in doing things to benefit others

Customers are not silly, they understand about all the ways which companies can sell to them. When Entrepreneurs endorse products, they have spent time researching and testing them, they believe in only selling things which can give benefit to others. Entrepreneurs believe in building a solid long term relationship with their leads and there is no point jeopardizing their potential customers by constantly trying to sell them things they don’t need.

4. Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training

In an Online Business, Entrepreneurs must continually train in new technologies and keep up to date with the latest releases. The Internet is a really exciting place to have a business and the possibilities are endless but if Entrepreneurs don’t continually read and learn and implement new strategies they would be left behind. There is never a day when an Entrepreneur doesn’t have something new to learn.

5. A Jedi Must have Self Discipline

As an Entrepreneur, you work for yourself, the only person you have to answer to, is you. You must be Self-Disciplined to accomplish your tasks every day because otherwise, the only person you let down is you.

May the Force be With You! 🙂
