Everyone needs a habit to spend their time in an enjoying manner. Habits are something which is enjoyed and we do it happily. For example, jogging, listening to music, playing football or cricket, reading books and many more. In the same way, student Entrepreneur also have their daily habits. But they are different from others. Their habits are complex and they give very much time of their day to stick with it. Also, they rarely spend most of the time in doing what normal students are doing. So, they are very focused and believe in making short term and long-term plans. Also, they not only make plans but stick to it.
“To any entrepreneur: if you want to do it, do it now. If you don’t, you’re going to regret it.”
Now we move on to understand the habits which student entrepreneurs have in their life.
1. Student Entrepreneur Continuously Research.
They do this by reading newspapers, surfing over internet, reading books in libraries, talking with friends, professors and other people.
They learn new technologies, current innovations, big company plans and their business status. Also they find possible projects they can do, competitions in other colleges, business events, social and cultural Events, workshops and seminars, tutorials, etc. They spend a lot of time and accordingly make a plan.
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
2. They Continuously Speak.
Student entrepreneur always have something to say. Even if they have nothing to speak, they talk about themselves and their situations which they are facing now or have already faced before.
They do this because they explain themselves and in return they expect people to know them very well. Other than themselves, they talk about current situations taking place around them as well as in other regions.
3. They are Involved with Everybody.
Student Entrepreneurs are comfortable with every student. They don’t make a circle of friends and be with them every time.
Rather they sit with everybody and listen to their situations. They also give suitable solutions if they are able to. They won’t believe in making deeper relations with somebody, but they believe in maintaining healthy relations with everybody.
Not only with students, they speak with junior professors, senior professors and seniors also. Also, they sometimes talk casually and over personal things with them.
“Watch, listen, and learn. You can’t know it all yourself. Anyone who thinks they do is destined for mediocrity.”
– Donald Trump
4. They provide help whenever possible.
Student entrepreneur love to help everybody. They help other student startups and students with studies. Also, they enjoy doing it and help according to their abilities. In case, if they are not able to help, then they mention other person’s name who can suitably help them.
5. They are involved in extra activities.
This is because they believe that working in such events not only helps to connect with more people but will also make their current connections much stronger as they are increasing their presence. Even though they work less, but they make sure to get much of the results.
“Everyone should pull their finger out and start a business and to believe in themselves. There is nothing else to it. Anyone can make a £100m. But most people don’t go out and try. They just stand in the pub and complain.”
– Duncan Bannatyne
6. They avoid saying No.
Student Entrepreneurs do not say no directly when they find themselves unable to help others. Instead, they either ask for time or tell someone else’s name who can help. And even if they have no other choice, then they properly mention it.
Therefore by following the above habits, you will gain potential and capability to become a successful entrepreneur in future and lead a successful student life. So, All the Best!
