According to me both a positive attitude and knowledge is required for a Business's success.

As because for example when you think of starting a new venture or business you need to have an in dept knowledge of the market that you are entering into, a lot of study goes on while building or strategising your business. Hence a person with a lack of knowledge will not be able to generate new ideas and also fail in running the business.

Talking about being positive, let's say one day you occur a major loss in your business. You cannot shut your business the next day and find something other. Building a business takes a lot of effort and hard work to be done. As there is a famous slogan"Rome city was not built in a day". Hence businesses also take time to get success. If you fail at a certain point of time, we get up with a positive mindset and start working.

Hence, I feel both are very important.

Hi friends I want to share my opinion.

According to me, a positive attitude is required for anything in our life for our personal life and professional life. We everybody should positive-minded then we can solve our problem as well as we will get happiness. But knowledge is a different thing, knowledge comes to the power, without the knowledge I will not be able to do anything. Specially I want to start my business and I don't have an idea I will not be able to manage, maybe when I will be in trouble I will gather knowledge because we know failure is the pillar of success but in this way I will incur huge losses and maybe I will not be able to survive. Any work started before that I have to prepare myself and gather my knowledge then I can work, definitely, I have to positively minded. If I have the knowledge and I will be positive then I can get success.

According to me, a positive attitude is a different thing and knowledge is a different thing. A positive attitude is required everywhere, whatever it is. If don't have a positive attitude he/she will not be able to go ahead. If I don't have a positive attitude I can't start any work, may be started but can't continue and knowledge is different things. Knowledge comes power. Without knowledge, people cannot get confidence. Knowledge is very essential in any area that I want to do. For example, I have always a positive attitude I want to work and give my full efforts but I don't have knowledge then it is not possible to start any business. So according to me positive attitude and knowledge both required to get business success.

A very good morning to all my dear friends.

I am Rakesh from Andhra Pradesh. I would like to share my opinion with all of you. In my opinion, a positive attitude is very much crucial for getting success in any area. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Without a positive attitude, we can not get success. But at the same time, there should be balanced knowledge as well. I can say a positive attitude with balanced knowledge about the business environment and about the subject is required to succeed in business. Thank you all.

Positive attitude and knowledge are required for a company. Because knowledge gives success to the company and positive attitude gives an impression and it will encourage people to do more work.

In my opinion positive attitude is not only important for business success even it is also important for survival. But it would not correct to say that knowledge is not important. For success, Knowledge is as important as positive attitude.

Let's have an example of that type of person who has positive attitude but no any knowledge: That type of person may be a good communicator rather than an effective communicator. In my opinion that type of person will have to face various difficulties regarding technical matters. And practically, Business is not only about investment, It requires lots of efforts and knowledge to be a successful businessman.

On the other hand if there is a person having good knowledge but lack of attitude, then in my opinion, that type of person couldn't take creative and innovative initiation. They would always abide by the decision of others. And, Only knowledge is not sufficient for achieve goals.

Conclusion: If I conclude this topic, then a person must have positive attitude and knowledge as well. Because knowledge would give you a platform to implement the plan in effective manner and positive attitude would provide a motivation to take initiation.

In this case when you gave up hope in beginning then definitely it will not be solve. There is the concept of positive attitude where this work. But if you have hope but don't have any knowledge or skills how to do, then also no benefit.

Positive knowledge and Knowledge both are required to achieve business success. For example you cannot start manufacturing the old motor cycles which moves with pedal movement as it has become obsolete and new models have come which are more efficient and easy to ride. You cannot develop a product and sell at a sky high price and expect good profits.

You cannot start a supermarket in an industrial area where there are no residential houses. Therefore to decide where to start, when to start, how to start a business you need to study people who are successful in business. Therefore I believe that acquiring knowledge is highly necessary to overcome all the doubts and fears.

Positive attitude is like a friend who motivates us when we feel depressed during the process of achieving our goals. Positive attitude is necessary when we want to compete against a huge giant in the industry, to keep faith and belief in ourselves. Positive attitude is like a petrol in the engine which keeps us running and not getting tired from everything.

In my view knowledge is the wagon wheel for success in business. But no businessman has tasted success without facing failure. It is about having a positive attitude and learning from the failures to attain unforeseeable heights in business. Knowledge instills confidence and positive attitude retains that confidence of a businessman.

I would like to support my argument with one of richest men ever born. Sam Walton had an economic crisis when bankers refused to lend him money, and some of his product suppliers created a credit crisis for him when they forced him to agree to pay cash on delivery before they would ship products to his stores.

It seemed everyone lacked confidence in his business strategy at a time when he needed to count on their support the most. For Sam Walton to succeed, in those early and difficult days, took a singularity of focus, passionate leadership, and a never say die attitude.

So I would like to conclude by saying that gain knowledge, work hard and have a positive outlook in business and money will kiss your feet.

Hello friends, according to my point of view, no doubt positive attitude play a big role in the success of every business, but knowledge is also required for the success of every business which may be less or more according to the business requirement. I think if a person doesn't have any knowledge about any the business which he/she is going to start, then it may or maynot be success.

If we consider even a small business or a person going to start a shop and if they doesn't have any knowledge about it that then how they are able to purchase a good quality product and how to sell their products. So think if for opening a shop, there is a requirement of enough knowledge about the products which are selling in the shop, then how a big business become successful without any knowledge about it.

Suppose a person going to start new business and he/she don't have any knowledge about it, but have positive attitude, then what happen either he/she is not able to sell their product or not able to gain profit.

So at last I want to say that for any business to become successful, I think there is a need of positive attitude as well as knowledge and any business may not be success if any one of then not have.

Knowledge is a key for success. Indeed, what matters is the way we respond to the situation which can lead to success. One may reach or might have reached to the pillars of life he or she is looking for. That does not mean that he/she is fully knowledgeable, but rather he/she has something good in his/her mind that changed the world around him/her. I have a lot of friends and classmates since my school-undergraduate to postgraduate classes who have deep knowledge on sciences and techs, but living the life they don't deserve.

I would like to say about this discussion. In my point of view both points have the their own value. But I will prefer to knowledge than positive attitude. Because without any kind of knowledge we can't enter in any business. You know very well when we start even a small business then we collect different type of knowledge from different sources. Just like our friends, relatives and existing businessmen those who are presently involve in same kind of business.

After getting the knowledge from different sources then with the positive attitude we enter in the business. Positive attitude comes after getting the knowledge of the same kind of business. If you don't have positive attitude you can never start any business. Because if you are going to start any business then you will be thinking about profit and loss.

I think positive attitude is more important compared to knowledge because one who has positive attitude paves his way towards knowledge by engaging into activities. So he learns by involving himself into something or with somebody. One who has positive attitude might not have the bookish knowledge but has the street smartness to tackle difficult situations.

In practical situations knowledge comes handy when we are climbing the ladder from a lower level to a middle level but after that its the attitude which makes the difference. So people who are really successful have the right attitude and as far as knowledge is concerned one can always outsource it.

Thanks to all of you, I am an entrepreneur and disagree with most of your comments.

Attitude carry's 60% in everything, be it personal life, job, or your business. Knowledge of something DOES NOT automatically translate into positive attitude.

Example1: If I have money and have no knowledge in a particular business, but have a positive attitude towards good managers, investors etc. They could make my business grow and grow.

Example 2: I do not have knowledge in construction, but because of my attitude towards honesty and motivation of people, I now have a small business with artisans who construct houses for people outside my country.

Last example; everyone has knowledge in eating, but there are manners in eating at dinner, we have a lot of people even professors, not having positive attitude towards table manners. SO I GIVE POSITIVE ATTITUDE MORE POINTS THAN KNOWLEDGE. I can give several examples including market women who have very bad attitude towards their customers and as a result loosing Pure cash.

In my opinion both are complementary to each other.

Business is a macro level.

Lets talk about job" Micro level of a business.

Knowledge and understanding the business and concepts which is also IQ (Intelligence quotient) can land you into a well paying dream job.

Where as to maintain that dream job, strong knowledge base and positive attitude which is also EQ (Emotional Quotient) is of utmost importance.

The same principal applies to business.

Hi, I am Niladri, at first I would like to say a very good afternoon to everybody and also like to thank to this good topic that we have. See, business is something that should be dealt with utmost care. You not only be a smart but also you need have an intense knowledge for the business that you want to start. To me, in dealing two things you need to memorize.

1. A good knowledge about the business. With this knowledge you can handle any difficult situation with much more ease.

2. A positive attitude and confidence which really helpful in case of mundane situations where criticism and depression go hand in hand.

In my point of view knowledge and positive attitude are inter-related, if you have knowledge regarding that business it results in positive attitude and at the same time in positive attitude helps to gain much more knowledge and to stand in difficult time. So both positive attitude and knowledge go hand in hand to be successful in any business.

Knowledge is most important to success in any field. Like business, sports, etc. You enter in any field you have knowledge then positive attitude comes automatically, suppose, you want to drive a car you have lots of positive attitude but don't have knowledge how to drive a car is that enough for you. ? so in my opinion knowledge is most important than positive attitude.

According to my opinions, until or unless you don't have adequate knowledge about your field you can't be successful in business. At least base should be very strong. Rest of the things you can adopt just by experience. So, I insist on having smart knowledge about your field, positive attitude will automatically come. Because only with knowledge you can be more confident and you can put across your ideas, your views more confidently.

Hi friends, I am prosenjit from kolkata, firstly I would say this is a good topic to discuss. According to me business only with positive attitude but not having knowledge is like a body without its soul. From my point of view to be succeeded in business you should posses both of them, your positive attitude is must towards a successful business, its a business which involves a lot of risks and hurdles but you have to have experience, knowledge skill in that field and also you have to be positive to avoid those hurdles. Until and unless you have knowledge you will not be able to reach in your goal just only with positive attitude. Management in business also a boon of it if you smart and talented then only you can manage your organisation. So according to me in a business positive attitude is mandatory but that should there be experience and knowledge also.

Both knowledge and confidence goes hand in hand. Just being confident won't take you anywhere. You must have at-least basic knowledge of the business you want to start.

Knowledge will help an individual to understand the pros and cons of a business whereas confidence will help to think in a positive way.

If you have knowledge and know how to implement it, positive attitude comes automatically.

Hello friends. Thats absolutely right that positive attitude is necessary to carry on a good business but apart from that if we think knowledge also plays a vital role in that. Because let us suppose that a particular person always thinks positive even when the situation is against him. But the thing is if he want to carry on with his business he definitely needs to have knowledge about that because knowledge is also as important as is the positive attitude.

So according to me not only does a positive attitude plays a important role but knowledge is also important.

I appreciate your views and as per my opinion both are equally important. First of all we describe the word knowledge "it means a thing which is we know perfectly" and positive attitude means "Always thinking Positive" and showing positive attitude towards any thing. In a business we need to Positive attitude and Knowledge to bring profit of the business. Suppose if we are thinking negative then we are not able to gain knowledge. If we are thinking positive then we can gain knowledge and put it in practical level. Positive attitude and knowledge is like two eyes if we wanted to visualize the vision we have to use two eyes.

I believe, both knowledge and positive attitude are important, for one to get success in any field. Knowledge is not only required to start any business, but also to sustain it, whereas positive attitude helps us during our bad times, it gives us courage to face the problems. Hence knowledge is like the foundation of building, which should be strong, and positive attitude is like the pillar to support.

As per my opinion, Business Success can be achieved when Knowledge is used in the proper direction with a positive attitude. Knowledge can be said to be the Source of an business idea and Positive attitude is the flow which takes this knowledge in the vast ocean of business challenges. To overcome the challenges in planning and implementing any business strategy an ocean of knowledge needs to be digested which can be applied as and when required. Positive attitude offcourse is equally important as no stone can turn out to be a diamond unless it is polished in the hands of a Johari.

Knowledge is an essential thing for any enterpreneur who wishes to succeed in his life. He must have basic knowledge about his business like his suppliers, target customers, his products and its features etc which leads him to understand his position in business and can take necessary moves to improve his business.

On the other hand positive attitude is equally important to sustain in the business. When a plan fails for a businessman, he must learn a new lesson from it and search for an alternative which will succeed instead of simply winding up the business.

Therefore both the knowledge and positive attitude are equally important to succeed in the business.

For a business, both knowledge and positive attitude is important, both have different role in business, for a business, one should keep the positive attitude and knowledge, suppose you have lot of knowledge and don't have positive attitude, then no use of your knowledge, you always thinks of negative point and if you have a positive attitude and no knowledge, then no need of your positive attitude because you will not able to take the decision without the knowledge of that area, so as I think both have an important role for a business then only you will be success in your business.

According to the recent researches 85 % of the people get successful only because of their attitude and the way they look up and take up things and only 15% of the people get success because of the data and the knowledge they possess.

A person having good attitude is very open, is always focussed, has a sense of gratitude, has high self confidence and esteem, he creates a positive environment in the working area. He is always willing to learn. So he also gains knowledge which he lacks, because of his positive attitude.

So ultimately such a person becomes an asset for the company. His attitude has therefore not only profited him but also the company to a greater extent.
