Successful Entrepreneurs Continually Invest in Personal Improvement

David Cummings on Startups

One pattern I’ve found with successful entrepreneurs is the internal motivation to continually invest in personal improvement. There’s this innate desire to keep getting better, both in life and in work.

Here are some of the more popular personal improvement things I see entrepreneurs doing:

  • Public speaking practice by joining Toastmasters International
  • Peer experience sharing and learning through EO and YPO
  • Exercise and sports (running, working out, hiking, biking, and golf are popular)
  • Reading books and blogs on a regular basis

The next time you talk to an entrepreneur, ask about personal improvement initiatives and see what they’re working on — it just might surprise you.

What else? What are your thoughts on the idea that successful entrepreneurs are continually investing in personal improvement?
