A value very hard to maintain, especially in this age of corporate greed and corruption.

It goes without saying that a person who himself is well-organized can be trusted to organize his work and business well. Self-discipline and organization skills go hand in hand.

Contrary to what many believe, hard work is still the in thing if you want to become successful. There is really no such thing as easy and smart work; the smart way to work is to work very hard without taking any short cuts. Dedication and perseverance are the sure roads to success.
One has to be truly passionate about what he does and to believe in it. The motivation to conduct a business is often the passion to meet new challenges and win them, which is what drives most entrepreneurs and helps them succeed.
Decision Making And Risk Taker:
Ability to take quick decisions based is the key to succeed, especially when faced with difficult decisions that may affect a business in the long term. Most successful entrepreneurs are the ones who take decisions based on instinct and gut feelings that come with experience. There may be times, when an entrepreneur has to make an adverse decision that may set back his enterprise for a short time, but he will do so nonchalantly if it means more profitable returns in future. A businessman might not tread those waters for fear of sinking, but a true entrepreneur will know how to remain afloat during such times and accept that risk with confidence, knowing fully well how to emerge from it unscathed and unharmed.
The most important attribute that an entrepreneur needs to have, confidence in him and his motives. He must not let others influence or waiver his decisions and must be confident enough to not let go of the goals he has set for him and his enterprise.
Open Minded and Learner:
An entrepreneur must always keep an open mind and should be able to quickly learn from others all that may benefit his enterprise. More importantly, he should be able to learn from his past mistakes and take lessons from those mistakes on the ways he can better his situation apply it to his business skills.
A successful entrepreneur will often see a window of opportunity whereby he can expand and further diversify his business and will not let such a single opportunity pass by without taking it.
Good Interpersonal Skills:
This is a very important and a must quality for each and every person who wants to succeed. This involves not just good communication skills but also skills of negotiation. During the course of his business, an entrepreneur comes into contact with people from many walks of life such as low-wages laborers, employees, government officials; customers etc. and he must be able to communicate with them effectively and tactfully.
