The energy, confidence and the lack of fear is what makes the entrepreneurs move forward and create their momentum for success. The biggest enemy of an entrepreneur is primarily their ego. In essence, ego is a crucial factor to an entrepreneur’s initial success but, sometimes, it becomes a hindrance.
Jeremy Harbour, a leading entrepreneur who has gained impeccable reputation due to his extensive knowledge and expertise in the Mergers & Acquisitions gives some of the tips on how to keep your ego in check:
1. Know when to lead and when to follow:
It can be quite challenging to collaborate with people who don’t have young entrepreneur’s mindset. By looking with a 360-degree perspective may help in improving communication and boost the morale of employees. If someone has an idea, be quiet and listen to it with 100 percent attention.
2. Know the difference between healthy and destructive ego:
There’s a fine line between being a confident business person and just simply being an egotistic narcissist. Be proud of your certain accomplishments, but at the same time, you should be humble about them.
3. Stay grounded:
As an entrepreneur, we are constantly dreaming of the future and how we can achieve our goals in the most efficient way possible. Always remember, where you came from and do activities that reconnect you to your roots.
