Do you wish you had more of an influence on people?

March 5, 2018

Platforms like Facebook (2004), Twitter (2006), Instagram (2010), Snapchat (2011), and TikTok (2017), have given way to the “social media influencer.” These individuals essentially have established credibility in a specific industry – along with access to a large audience – and persuade others to act based on their recommendations. For all intent and purposes, they monetize their popularity and influence. Even if you have zero interest in becoming a social media influencer, do you wish you had more of an influence on people in general?

  • Yes

Are you ambitious?

February 11, 2018

Ambitions are the motives of a person, based on the need for success. They make us move forward reaching new horizons, and most importantly – striving for the goal.

Ambitiousness is undoubtedly a virtue only when it is backed up with something when a person has grounds for it. When there is nothing behind it and ambitions arise in an empty place – it looks funny, to say the least. By developing healthy ambitions, we become closer to our goal: to be better, to succeed, to lead others. When you aspire to certain goals, do you feel the inspiration and the inflow of internal energy? Perhaps it is these feelings that called ambitious energy.

The most important condition for ambition is to achieve goals. If you wanna plan, strive but do not achieve your goal, this will gradually lead to a denial of ambitious desires. First of all, ambitiousness is a constant desire for self-development and self-improvement. An ambitious person attends various trainings and seminars, reads professional literature since they understand that without development there will be no movement towards the goal. Such a person realizes the need to adapt to the changing environment and at the same time tries not to lose own individuality. They will always try to learn something new because new knowledge contributes to the future advancements.

So, do you consider yourself an ambitious person?

  • Yes
  • Sometimes, it depends
  • No

Are you entrepreneurial?

September 28, 2017

In modern society, one of the most popular and highly paid jobs is the work of an entrepreneur. In general, many people are engaged in entrepreneurial activities. They all are different in character, habits, values, way of thinking, etc. However, they all have some common features that make it possible to draw a general portrait of an entrepreneur, with particular characteristics and motivation. Modern psychologists and sociologists believe that no more than 5-7% of the population can become successful entrepreneurs. Only this insignificant percentage of people has the qualities necessary for entrepreneurship: purposefulness, activity, organizational skills, entrepreneurial talent. Among the psychological characteristics, the following are important for an entrepreneur: the presence of a creative mind and the desire for novelty and independence, the desire to achieve a certain result. 

The entrepreneur of the Western type is, first and foremost, an innovator, reformer and revolutionary in the methods of production. The limitation of the business society is largely due to the fact that not all people are willing to risk, exposing their personal assets and finances. A large number of people choose a calm, standard life and employment with a decent wage. Also, many people are stopped by the fact that not all entrepreneurs are successful. 

So, are you inclined to entrepreneurship?

  • Absolutely. I have, or am planning to run my own business
  • Yes, but I’m not planning to own or run a business
  • No
