The good news is, you don’t need excellent academic qualification to become a successful entrepreneur. Statistically, most of the highly successful entrepreneurs are not known for their academic performance.

When we mention iconic entrepreneurs, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson come to mind. We somehow think they were born with the entrepreneur DNA. What if you were born with Steve Jobs’ creative genius or Bill Gates’ business acumen?

Let’s find out now. Success leaves clues. The successful entrepreneurs share certain characteristics. In this article, I am going to share with you about perseverance.

This characteristic is known by many names – persistence, resilience, commitment, tenacity. It’s the ability to deal with repeated failure.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” – Sylvester Stallone in Rocky Balboa

In BaZi astrology, perseverance is represented by Bing Fire (丙). Bing Fire represents the image of the sun, where it rises every morning and sets in the evening, and it will continue to do so every single day.

Steve Jobs, who is a Bing Fire himself, said this during an interview: “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-success ones is pure perseverance.

If you are willing to work until your fingernails fall out and your eyeballs roll onto the desk, then a world of opportunity awaits you.

Let’s find out whether you have this first ingredient, perseverance by plotting your BaZi Chart here.

Once you have your chart ready, look for the Bing Fire (丙) anywhere in your chart.


Below is an example of a Destiny Chart that contains Bing Fire (丙) – circled in red.

If you have Bing Fire (丙), congratulations. You possess one of the ingredients that Steve Jobs possessed. You must harness this given ability to the fullest. Of course, the location and position of this element will tell us its intensity and under what circumstances this ability will be awaken. You will learn more of this once you have a deeper understanding of the element in your BaZi Chart.

Being an entrepreneur is more about a state of mind than having a specific business idea. Aside from perseverance, you also need to be a risk taker, a visionary, and a market disruptor, while also have flexibility and self-belief, which can be easily identified from your BaZi Chart. These are some of the indicators I use during my consults to suggest to my clients the winning strategy to pursue the entrepreneur path.

Although characteristics are big factors, luck plays a big part too. They are the external opportunities, such as getting the right people,  anticipating demand and market trend. This part can be uncovered by analysing our luck pillar and annual pillar inside our BaZi Chart.
