What makes entrepreneurs entrepreneurial

While many point to luck and genetics as the key ingredients of entrepreneurs, the truth is not so. Saras Sarasvathy, under the mentorship of Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon of Carnegie Mellon University, has discovered the "secret sauce" of entrepreneurs, as have numerous other researchers... control over the future. 

Expert entrepreneurs believe that the future is shaped by people. They believe that if they can make the future happen, they don't need to worry about predicting the future, determining perfect timing to start, or finding the optimal opportunity. - Society for Effectual Action, inspired by Saras Sarasvathy

Yes, all good entrepreneurs believe that they (and others) can shape the future. They believe they can make things better for society, and do not leave it up to fate.

This mindset is one of a leader. You may think: "Today is a great day because I'm going to make it one." In contrast, believing the future is out of your control or predetermined is known as a victim mindset.

It really all comes down to a choice. Do you want to have control over your future? Society's future? If so, live that way. Make a choice to take control of your life.
