Becoming a successful entrepreneur doesn?t just happen overnight. Fear of failure of is one reason that many entrepreneurs fall by the wayside. Successful entrepreneurs view failure as a positive experience ? something to learn from and overcome in the future. All entrepreneurs inevitably make mistakes along the path to success. But what matters most is that you own your failures and take full responsibility for the knock-backs and move forward quickly.
In the entrepreneur world, it?s common to have a typical grass to grace story, and for Mohd Zaki, he almost didn?t grab the opportunity that would change his life. Mohd Zaki saw many things that motivated him from a young age. He saw many of his schoolmates in flashy cars with their wealthy parents. It sparked curiosity in Mohd, and all that fueled his drive to be successful no matter how difficult it got. With that experience, the mindset to be a successful man was already ingrained in his mind. He began working hard to achieve the lifestyle he truly desired.
Working smart, finding the right people to get the work done and doing more with less are all keys to being a successful entrepreneur. Unfortunately, they are not guarantees. You have to be realistic ? not every business succeeds.
Sometimes the concept just wasn?t right or the competition was tougher than anticipated. Oftentimes, completely unforeseeable situations occur, ruining your forward momentum. You have to be prepared to fail, but more importantly, not be afraid of failing said Mohd Zaki.
Even the richest, most experienced entrepreneurs cannot be good at?everything! All entrepreneurs require a team of people around them that complement their skills. The real skill is not only hiring the best possible team to support you, it?s about hiring people who share your vision and passion. By inspiring and investing in your team, not only will they succeed but the business itself will too.
Mohd Zaki is not just another businessman who only cares about his bottom line. It?s beyond that for him, and that is what he attributes his success to. ?My overall knowledge about the industry has helped me set myself apart. I also care immensely about my team and clients that I focus solely on achieving the best results more than anything else,? he says. ?The challenges and obstacles abound, but I always find a way to trump them because my goals and what they mean to me keep me going,? Mohd adds.
