Extended Abstract
Today, entrepreneurship education has become one of the most important and widespread activities of foreign universities (1, 2). Meanwhile, the entrepreneurial approach in sports can provide a mechanism for enduring economic crises. Emerging economies provide catalysts for entrepreneurship to emerge (3). Reported that the dimensions and existence of the fitness industry and related jobs are still being considered in order to receive the results of entrepreneurs (4).
Sport provides the necessary ground for the development of entrepreneurship by creating a demand for sports services and goods and creating attractiveness for communities, and entrepreneurship helps the development of sports through sports businesses. And identify an effective structure in the development of sports and based on the goals that exist in various dimensions of sports entrepreneurship, to create effective structures and contexts in the development of sports entrepreneurship (8).
One of these structures is psychological specificity. The importance of the issue is such that various experts and theorists of sociological and psychological issues have a special emphasis on the need to develop entrepreneurship based on the psychological characteristics of individuals and in the age of globalization its role in economic, social and cultural development and ... Countries are considered very important (2).
Another important factor in the development of peoplechr('39')s potential is mental health. Mental health refers to a situation in which a person does not have abnormal thoughts, behaviors and behaviors while enjoying life and is able to communicate with others and the effective environment (10). In fact, mental health and its role in the survival of human society indicate the importance of man as a social being (11). Considering the above and the importance and role of entrepreneurship in the country and in sports on the one hand and the use of all psychological and health factors in entrepreneurship, so unfortunately, after reviewing research conducted inside and outside the country, no research was found to examine the role Psychological characteristics and mental health in sports entrepreneurs. Therefore, the researcher seeks to answer the question: what is the role of psychological and mental health dimensions in entrepreneurship education in entrepreneurs in the provinces of West and East Azerbaijan?
The method of the present study was correlational research. The population of this study was all entrepreneurs in West and East Azerbaijan. Due to the lack of organization of this society, 130 entrepreneurs were selected as the available sample. The method of physical research was facial. After explaining the objectives of the research and applying the results to the participants, the researcher-made questionnaire of entrepreneurship education has 16 questions and has a five-point Likert scale (it does not matter at all, it is very important). Personality Traits Questionnaire of Nietzsche et al. (2007) has 95 questions and 8 components of balanced risk-taking (questions 1 to 18), control center (questions 19 to 35), need for success (questions 26 to 50), mental health (questions 51 to 63), pragmatism (questions 64 to 71), tolerance of ambiguity (questions 72 to 82), daydreaming (questions 83 to 89), challenge-seeking (questions 90 to 95). Is based on a Likert scale with 4 options (strongly disagree to strongly agree). And Goldberg Mental Health Questionnaire which has 28 questions and 4 components of physical symptoms (questions 1 to 7), anxiety and insomnia (questions 8 to 14), social dysfunction (questions 15 to 21), depression (questions 22 to 28). Distributed and collected among them.
Finally, the mean and standard deviation were used to describe the data and Pearson correlation coefficient at the level of 0.05 with SPSS software version 26 and path analysis with Smrt-pls software were used to analyze the data.
The results of Pearson correlation coefficient showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between the psychological variables of balanced risk-taking, control center, need for success, mental health, pragmatism, ambiguity tolerance, dreaming and challenging and mental health with the evaluation of sports entrepreneurs training (Table 1). Also, the set of psychological dimensions and mental health have a positive and significant effect on the education of sports entrepreneurs (Figure 1).
The results of the present study showed that psychological components have a positive and significant relationship with entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs Described as individuals with a center of internal control Successful entrepreneurs believe in themselves and do not attribute success or failure to fate, luck, or similar forces. They also have the characteristic of being able to control the events that take place (13). Also, the need for independence is closely related to the desire for control. Entrepreneurs are generally people who want to do things their own way and find it difficult for others to work. The need for independence means being your own boss, which is one of the strongest needs of entrepreneurs (17). Another controversial feature of other entrepreneurs is the need for success. McClelland in his general theory of the nature of the need for success in entrepreneurs, the four characteristics of individual responsibility, setting goals and achieving these goals through personal effort, balanced risk-taking that is a function of performance skills rather than chance, awareness of results Execution of work and stated decision. He concludes that the intense need for success leads people to engage in entrepreneurial behaviors (17). Risk-taking means accepting and embracing the calculated risks in the business. Risk, whether financial or social or psychological, is an integral part of the entrepreneurial process. Entrepreneurs are able to deal effectively with ambiguous, incomplete, uncertain, unorganized and non-transparent situations and information (13).
One of the characteristics of entrepreneurs is creativity. According to Peter Drucker (1985), the existence of innovation in entrepreneurship is so essential that it can be argued that entrepreneurship does not exist without it and creativity does not work without innovation. Therefore, the resulting creativity and innovation is vital to the survival and success of the company. However, no research has been found on the relationship between mental health and entrepreneurship, given that creativity is a prerequisite for entrepreneurship (18). According to the theory of self-coordination, people who consider themselves worthy are more successful in performing tasks because they act on the knowledge they have of themselves (19). Therefore, mental health seems to play an important role in entrepreneurship.
