Entrepreneurship Skills: These are several points that you need to teach your son or daughter that is inspired by an entrepreneur in making.
1. Experience & Experiment – It is important to let your son or daughter know the value of experimenting & experiences. More often than not, children, as well as adults, curl up in their comfortable spot. But, nothing really grows in a comfortable place. Where there are challenges, there is a way to grow.
2. Self-confidence – Confidence is the only thing that would take you to places. Develop this in your child as much as you can. Every block built towards confidence is a block built towards success. Teach your child to embrace his or her weaknesses, flaws and imperfections. After all, self-confidence has a very important role to play ahead in life.
3. Durability & Resilience – Developing thick skin when it comes to adversity is paramount in an entrepreneur. We all know pain, failure, and disappointment are part of life. No matter how much you want to shield your kids from these things you can’t totally do so. An important part of entrepreneurship is learning about failure and not fearing it. Prepare your kids to develop a resilient spirit and handle challenges life sends their way. You will feel better and more confident in them while helping them avoid anxiety and self-doubt.
4. Problem-solving Ability – Entrepreneurs are critical thinkers. That is the best part of their personality. Teach your child to focus on the solutions in life instead of grieving over problems. It will help in a greater way.
5. Setting Goals – Goals add a direction and play the role of purpose in life. One cannot plan without goals and that is why it is such an important lesson to teach your kid. Teach your child to set short and long term goals. It will help them think more rationally.
6. Initiation – Entrepreneurs all have initiative. An initiative is a catalyst for creating innovative ideas. It is the motivation to look at what is or what is around you and take action to complete something or make something better. Developing a keen sense for identifying opportunities is one thing but without the initiative to take action nothing gets done
