What goes on in the mind of an intrapreneur? In a recent study, researchers compared the elements related to entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial activity.
The study found that among the 32,000 subjects who participated in it, five percent were engaged in the initial stages of a business startup, either on their own or within an organization.
The study also found that human capital such as education and experience is connected more with entrepreneurship than with intrapreneurship.
Another observation was that intrapreneurial startups were inclined to concentrate more on business-to-business products while entrepreneurial startups were inclined towards consumer sales and/or service.
Another important difference between entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship is age. The study found that people who launched their own companies were in their thirties and forties.
People from older and younger age groups were risk averse or felt they had no opportunities for entrepreneurships. This makes them perfect candidates for intrapreneurship experiences.
Entrepreneurship appeals to people who possess natural traits that find startups exciting. Intrapreneurs generally would not like to get entangled in startups.
They don’t want the bother and the risk. Managers will help their companies if they are on the lookout for employees who have the interest and potential to develop new ideas.
All they need is the time, the resources and the encouragement to turn ideas into reality.
The work of becoming great is not always much fun. As Thomas Edison once said, “Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.”
All the talent in the world won’t take you to the top of your game or a business. In order to be successful, you have to have the will to work hard and the belief that you will succeed.
You need the right mind send and a continuous “can do” attitude. Start your day out with positive reading and quiet time first thing in the morning.
I like to clear my mind and visualize the things I want to accomplish for the day. It is important that you stay positive and make a difference daily at work and home.
You have to have the mindset of a great leader.
Create an environment that allows people to flourish. Have humility and understanding for others, regardless of your title or education, your wealth or your status. Have an attitude of Gratitude and strive to be your best daily.
To make a change in the outer expression of your business, you need to create new habits within the inner working of your mind. To do this, I use a tool called affirmative statements or positive affirmations.
Self-affirmations are positive statements or self-scripts that can condition the subconscious mind to help you develop a more positive perception of yourself.
Affirmations can help you to change harmful behaviors or accomplish goals, and they can also help undo the damage caused by negative scripts, those things which we repeatedly tell ourselves (or which others repeatedly tell us) that contribute to a negative self-perception.
Affirmations are easy to create and use, but you’ll need dedication to make them work.
Affirmative statements can have two basic uses, depending on which meaning is being applied. When its grammatical meaning is being applied, an affirmative statement can be used to state any basic fact. In conversation, it allows the speaker to verbally express agreement.
In self-development, an affirmative statement builds confidence. It helps the speaker get into a successful mind set. Affirmative statements also help you put things in priority—organize your day.
It is a good practice to write affirmations and put them somewhere you will see them. They will be an encouragement whenever you read them. They help you keep that positive mind set and your goals in front of you all day.
1. I would suggest you use the self-affirming statements below:
2. I trust in myself and all that I attract to guide me.
3. I make decisions effortlessly. The “how” always appears.
4. I transform any invisible blocks and limiting thoughts into limitless fuel.
5. The vision of my business is solid and whole.
6. My growing team and I are powerfully aligned and attract everything we need, when we need it.
The daily practice of repeating positive thought changing statements have a definite positive impact on your “intended outcomes”.
Everything starts with your thoughts and your beliefs. It starts NOW. Know that there is no separation in your life or in your business. Eat, sleep, and live your vision. Your mindset
