Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, and Kevin O’Leary – these are your Sharks from the ABC hit show Shark Tank. Between the six of them they have tens of billions of dollars, and every week some entrepreneur (or wantrepreneur) tried to get a piece of their funds in the hopes of realizing their idea and dream. But what separates the winner from the losers? A shark mentality, that’s what. So if you’ve got dreams of making it big, then listen to what the Sharks have to say about what it takes to be a success.

“I actually think being an entrepreneur is a state of mind. If you’re going to be an entrepreneur, my thesis is that you have to sacrifice everything for some period in your life to be successful. You have to be myopic and completely focused and unbalanced in every way. Once you’ve achieved success, you’re free to do whatever you like.”
