Do you have what it takes to strike it out on your own? Got the entrepreneurial spirit in you? A number of people don’t fit into the existing corporate molds.

Maybe they have a hard time taking direction or hate working in an industry they aren’t passionate about. Perhaps they have a lot of great ideas that they never get to implement in their workplace because of all the bureaucratic red-tape.

Sometimes, they just feel driven to achieve, heading towards some finish line that most people can’t see. These people work best when they’re on their own, as entrepreneurs.

This test will identify whether you have the characteristics that typically demonstrate entrepreneurial potential.

Examine the following statements and indicate how often or to what degree you agree with them. In order to receive the most accurate results, please answer each question as honestly as possible.

After finishing this test you will receive a FREE snapshot report with a summary evaluation and graph. You will then have the option to purchase the full results for $12.95

Mental Speed Test

Mental Speed Test – Version 1

Mental Speed Test 


🧭 5 MINUTES

The following test is meant to assess your mental speed – how quickly you can process information and make decisions based upon that information.

The exercise consists of word/image pairs and simple mathematical equations or number sequences. If a pair matches, click the “Correct” button (the left arrow key on your keyboard). If the pair does not match, click the “Incorrect” button (the right arrow key on your keyboard). However, if the word “Opposite” appears at the top of the screen, you need to reverse your answer.

In the first example (pear and star), the answer would be incorrect (“Incorrect”). For the second example, although it is an exact match, the word Opposite appears at the top of the screen, so rather than choosing “Correct” you would have to choose “Incorrect”

For the mathematical equations simply indicate whether the answer is correct or incorrect. For the number sequences indicate whether the number in red correctly completes the sequence.

As you can see, the first equation is wrong – the answer should be 5, so in this case, you would choose “incorrect”. However, although the number sequence is also wrong (the answer should be 22), the word Opposite requires you to reverse your answer, so in this case you would choose “Correct” rather than “Incorrect”.

Remember, you are being timed, so try to answer as quickly as possible – and remember to reverse your answer when the word “Opposite” appears.

After finishing the test, you will find out how accurate and fast you were. Have fun!

 

Resilience, or “mental toughness,” is a key psychological aspect of sport. The ability to bounce back from a poor performance or a detrimental mistake is crucial to an athlete’s success. As much as athletes hate to admit it, failure is a part of the game.

I recommend 3 of my favorite books on resilience.

I’ve been interested in resilience since 2016. I wanted to learn more about how people recover from setbacks and major changes in identity.

I started by thinking about athletes recovering from major losses, enduring injury, or facing retirement. This was partly fueled by my own participation in athletics (competing in Brazilian jiu-jitsu last year, coping with chronic aches) and as a spectator (the mental or psychological preparation or fallout in Rhonda Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm, Rose Namajuna’s self-management which helped her dethrone Joanna Jędrzejczyk, Megan Rapinoe’s sense of self-driven purpose).

Because people, when they’re gonna either die or succeed, tend to succeed.” – Tony Robbins

You hit rock bottom. The lowest possible level, absolute bottom. It can’t get worse than this. The morning when you can’t stand the face you see in the mirror. The bitterness that you have to swallow each time you take a deep breath, the pain you have to carry in your heart, while pretending everything’s okay. That you’re fine. That it could be worse. That others have it worse.

The true dark night of the soul. No amount of pretending, rationalizing, meditating can do any good.

When it’s do or die.

I’ve been there. Twice. Funny. I did not learn the first time. I had to reach rock bottom twice to figure things out. I am still trying to understand how it is. How our suffering, our struggles, our failures make us better.

When you’re twenty years old, unemployed, broke, struggling with health issues and no healthcare plan, when your friends have abandoned you, when you think of yourself as a monumental failure, when it’s a struggle to wake up in the morning because, well, what’s the point?

I’ve been there. And I know that one of two things happens: you either get tired of it all and give up on life, or you get so angry that it sets your soul on fire and you conquer your demons and fight your way up.

One of two things: do or die.

But I do want to ask you a question: is it necessary to reach rock bottom? Do we have to be at our lowest to realize that we must fight and keep fighting?

What if you were to do anything as if your life depended on it?

Don’t want to work out? Work out. Don’t feel like writing? Write. Don’t want to talk to people? Talk to people.

Do the scary thing. Do what you’ve been postponing over and over again. Postpone being lazy, watching TV, procrastinating.

I’ll act lazy tomorrow.”

And then you wake up the next morning and welcome the grind with a big, cheeky grin glued to your face. You look like hell, but you like the face that’s staring you in the mirror.

Remember this: if you wake up tired, you’ve been chasing dreams. If you go to bed tired, you’re making your dreams come true.
