Entrepreneurs are credited with changing the world and shaping our future. They are considered pioneers and leaders who concentrate their efforts and skills to improve the lives of people around them, often creating a meaningful impact on society. To do this effectively, entrepreneurs need to possess and hone certain skills and characteristics that help them align their lifestyles to their goals. This, in turn, enables them to achieve what they have set out to do.
Most motivational speakers and entrepreneurs generally talk about the features and characteristics that make for a successful entrepreneur; characteristics like being resilient and driven, being persistent in your pursuit of success, and more recent buzzwords such as “having grit” and “hustling”. Aside from these attributes, one also needs to be well versed in business dealings and have a certain amount of technical knowledge to make a splash.
These traits may be essential to have in order to become successful, however, according to Aiman Kabli, the founder of FELS, they are inherently attributed to one’s personality and occur naturally. Mr. Kabli believes that It is difficult to determine how to develop such skills as they are arbitrary and cannot be trained for. They are determined largely by one’s upbringing and personal conditioning. Therefore it’s important to develop a lifestyle that positively influences one’s work or business.
The Flourishing Entrepreneurial Lifestyle
or FELS is an online content platform that is determined to discover and identify the blueprints of such a lifestyle that positively impacts one’s business or work and to make it accessible to all. FELS is the first of its kind, a website, a blog, and an app, all focused on creating a global network to train and facilitate individuals who wish to achieve greatness by providing a space to connect and interact with like-minded people, exchange ideas, and support each other.
FELS advocates for ten main lifestyle pillars which have been carefully researched from the lives of top business leaders from around the world. These pillars are a combination of a variety of relatively common traits that come together to create a holistic lifestyle that can ensure success in business. The philosophy behind this is that when combined, the ten pillars can enable one to become better at handling complex entrepreneurship pursuits and challenging business undertakings.
