Tony Robbins: The 3 Traits of Great Entrepreneurs

November 17, 2017 | Written by Tony Robbins



Entrepreneurs are recognized by their process and accomplishments, but rarely do they share identical traits, experiences or challenges along their journey. What defines an entrepreneur, in action, is the ability to fuse their unique X-factor with an unforeseen blank space in the marketplace. This combination, once fulfilled, so fundamentally changes the experience of people everywhere that being without it seems impossible.

Read the recap below, or link to the full blog here.



Often, your greatest strength is ironically the foundation of your most difficult challenge. By discovering what you will do, provide or create, better than anybody else before you, gives you an unbeatable edge — if you can overcome the ultimate test it manifests for you. Entrepreneurs share three powerful capabilities that place them above those who try and fail without aligning more deeply with what creates success.


These days, the most successful entrepreneurs are not only found in Silicon Valley, nor do they necessarily work in tech, but they do produce products and services that help provide greater meaning to people’s lives.

“The best entrepreneurs on earth never lose that hunger,” as Tony says. “They are hungry to grow, hungry to give, hungry to contribute. It’s more important than intelligence. There’s nothing that will stop a person who is hungry enough. A hungry person, failure doesn’t stop them.”


Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

How do you align what people need and want with your own vision? A plan is a great start, but plans change — develop a purpose and a vision that’s greater than yourself, then create a map to get you there.


Anticipation is power. In today’s fractured and evolving business landscape, owners and leaders need to run two businesses simultaneously — the one you’re in now and the one you’re always becoming. If you can find a way to not only meet your clients needs, but redefine what those needs are on a fundamental level, then consistently surpass, you’ll become a true visionary. The key competence successful leaders have over followers is applied dedication.

As Tony explains, “It’s not what we get, but who we become and what we contribute that gives meaning to our lives.”
