Entrepreneurial endeavour will never happen without it. Commitment is the founding drive of the entrepreneur. Not just the commitment to do - but the commitment to do and then see it through - not just the commitment to see it through but to see it through with everything on-the-line. It is a commitment to the long term, the commitment to never giving up on the dream, the commitment to getting up and starting all over again if fate so decrees.

The commitment tap root for the entrepreneur is the deep desire to live a life of significance. So, commitment for the entrepreneur stems from their belief that they are doing something worthwhile, not just for themselves and their associates but for the 'greater good'. It is this commitment that sees them continue in the face of disappointment and set backs, when others declare it as 'all too hard'. According to Michael Simmons, author of the book The Student Success Manifesto The difference between an interest and a commitment, is the difference between if and when. When we truly commit ourselves to success, it becomes inevitable.

If commitment is the ying, then the whole is complete with the yang of courage. For one can not exist without the other. That is, courageous people are committed just as committed people are courageous. Now courage is not acting without fear but is rather the ability to look beyond the things that scare you to death and see the things that inspire you to live. For more, see the knol by Sandra Walston on courage.

"More important than all the talent, all the resources and all the opportunities is a solitary act of commitment" PB For more info please visit:http://knol.google.com/k/characteristics-of-an-entrepreneur#view
