“New and current entrepreneur’s constantly must ask themselves one important question: ‘Am I doing everything I can to be better each day?’ If the answer to this question is yes, then great job! But, if the answer to this makes you hesitate and reevaluate yourself, then you need to ask yourself, what can you do to make sure you get into a habit of doing so?” mentions Boyd Parker, managing director of Hero Corp. At Hero Corp, we believe this realisation derives from self-awareness. Self-awareness helps you be aware of your surroundings and your goals. It shows how confident you are and what you’re capable of. “Being alive and thriving is a wonderful thing. It is so important to stay challenged and constantly grow and improve yourself. It’s important to persevere on a level that’s beyond your belief. That’s how you can make it to the top,” says Boyd Parker of Hero Corp.
According to an article “Are You Self-Aware? 5 Key Traits You Need to Have to Be a Great Entrepreneur” the writer Jonathan Long establishes, “Entrepreneurial success stories are few and far between. Only 30 percent of businesses survive a decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Business Employment Dynamics,” According to Long he met with founder and CEO of national meal-service company called Nutrition Solutions, the owner Chris Cavallini spoke about self-awareness a lot which made Long understand the benefits and importance of having self-awareness traits. “The one most important aspect of Long’s writing is that he portrays the importance of self-awareness in a way that helps you benefit yourself in the long run. Rather than thinking short-term, think of self-awareness as a step to help you in your future goals,” says Boyd Parker of Hero Corp.
In the article Long illustrates self-awareness as: “Believe in yourself first — before anyone else does.” He writes, “I don’t think anyone I grew up with expected me to do the things I’m doing today, and I can’t blame them for that, because back then I didn’t even believe in myself. The moment I started to see my potential, the faster I grew,” said Cavallini. It sounds cliché, but it’s true — you have to believe in yourself before you can expect anyone else to get behind you. Cavallini takes this mentality a step further and adds the importance of nurturing that self-confidence over time. It’s not something that happens immediately. For him, it came during the years spent in the gym — that’s where he found himself. That self-confidence was leveraged, allowing him to transition into entrepreneurship.”
