Do you have what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurs—people who start their own businesses—are a vital part of any economy. They step up with new ideas and help create employment. But, becoming an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It requires long hours, hard work, adaptability and a thick skin.

Launching and sustaining a successful online business is equally demanding and requires skills that don't always come naturally.

And while no two entrepreneurs are alike—each has his or her own unique story of how they started—there are characteristics and personality traits that successful entrepreneurs tend to have in common. These include a penchant for optimism, the ability to handle failure, and a love of risk.

This thought-provoking infographic from on how to become an entrepreneur explains which attributes help entrepreneurs succeed and which pose the greatest challenge for business owners.

So, do you have what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur?
