Do you believe there is some sort of pattern or formula to becoming a successful entrepreneur?

Hey there, I would like to provide my opinion on this. 

However, I believe that we all should develop our own patterns and formulas for success. Sure, we can always look at routines adopted by entrepreneurs to get a basic format, but you could not convince someone working a night shift to wake up to 4 am to work. 

Everyone's situation is different, so the best way is to explore the routines and determine which parts of them can be implemented into your situation.

In my opinion, the 3 most basic patterns for successful entrepreneurs:

Work hard

Do not believe in any gurus / experts selling you a course or motivating you saying you must work hard. Duh, working hard is an essential, those who don't will absolutely fall off, just the matter when. Working hard is the fundamental one must have in running a business, and in career building as well. So, working hard is a must but not enough.

Work smart

Please ignore those who argue "should we work hard or work smart?". Stupid question, none of that is sufficient. Work hard & smart. Working smart in terms of saving time, energy & resources, and knowing most of the answers can be found in nature, in my opinion.

Timing aka "Luck"

I strongly believe that when you work hard & smart long enough, you will rise when the timing is right. Some called that luck, I call that persistent & consistent. All knowledge, skill, wisdom, strength, experience and etc you gained throughout the journey will be put into good use when the timing is right, in many ways, depending how you define success is.
