Do you have a High Degree of Intellectual Curiosity?

by

There are several patterns that are common among entrepreneurs that are financially succeeding in this current environment.

One that most people miss, the one that is not spoken about often, yet is the backbone of success, is a high degree of intellectual curiosity. I would estimate that 85% of entrepreneurs or small business owners do not have it…a leading indicator of financial failure.

My definition of a high degree of intellectual curiosity: it is the enthusiasm to ask intelligent questions consistently, especially with those who are succeeding in this economy (no matter the niche) and calibrating to that distinction and regulate what impact would that make to your business and your bottom line.

Also, this includes asking intelligent questions consistently to those who did not get the results they were expecting, especially those who had a high degree of success in the past and now have failed in this economy.

As a side note, those who were never successful, and continue to not succeed, those patterns are typically consistent. It is not necessary to spend a lot of time there; yet, being curious and asking a few questions is important, always.

That was a long definition.

The point is: SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS ABOUT EVERYTHING!
