Are You a “Real” Entrepreneur or a “Wanna Be”?

Here’s a portion of a great email I received today from the Google Adwords guy, Perry Marshall.

Twelve differences between those who dream and those who act:
1-Wanna-be’s obsess about ideas.  Entrepreneurs obsess about
2-Wanna-be’s want more web traffic.  Entrepreneurs focus on sales
3-Wanna-be’s focus on positive thinking.  Entrepreneurs plan for multiple
4-Wanna-be’s want to get on TV and get "famous."  Entrepreneurs build their
5-Wanna-be’s seek a perfect plan.  Entrepreneurs execute and adjust the
plan later.
6-Wanna-be’s wait for their lucky break.  Entrepreneurs engineer four,
five, six plans and execute them in tandem, wagering that at least one plan will
get traction.
7-Wanna-be’s fear looking stupid in front of their friends.  Entrepreneurs
willingly risk making fools of themselves, knowing that long-term success is a
good trade for short-term loss of dignity.
8-Wanna-be’s shield their precious ideas from harsh reality, postponing the
verdict of success or failure until ‘someday.’  Entrepreneurs expose their ideas
to cold reality as soon as reasonably possible.
9-Wanna-be’s put off practicing basketball until they’ve got Air Jordans.
Entrepreneurs practice barefoot behind the garage.
10-Wanna-be’s believe what they’re told, believe their own assumptions. 
Entrepreneurs do original research and determine what paths have been already
11-Wanna-be’s believe they can do anything.  Entrepreneurs do what they’re
gifted for and delegate the rest.
12-Wanna-be’s think about the world in terms of COULD and SHOULD. 
Entrepreneurs think in terms of IS and CAN BE.

So, which are you?
