Did you know that a lot of successful people have some pretty weird habits? Some could have contributed to their overall success in an unforeseen way. There are a lot of people that would say that successful people are rude, obnoxious and sometimes even hard to get along with, so why is that? It could very well have to due with the weird habits they have going on, which in a way puts people on the edge because they don’t understand.
I think most people have weird habits that they either try to hide or don’t bother recognizing. When it comes to entrepreneurs, there is plenty of weird stuff going on. It feels wrong to say “weird” as for entrepreneurs these weird habits are perfectly in line with what they are trying to achieve. Success is a fragile state. As they say, in the music industry, you are only as big as your last hit. In a way, that applies to every industry.
Some of the weird habits that successful people have are things like thinking backwards. I can see you scratching your head wondering what the heck that means. Well, what most successful people do is take a level of success they want to reach and go backwards to the point where they currently are. Sometimes it makes it a whole lot easier to navigate your way to your goal as you will have found a path which will take you there.
Another thing that successful people do, which could also be considered one of many weird habits, is that they say no, more times than they say yes. It can be hard to understand how someone that is constantly saying no can reach success, but just like this infographic says, if one is trying to achieve a goal, it is hard to concentrate on anything else. The only thing you will accomplish with that is to lose focus and perhaps mess up both projects.
Have a look at the infographic 5 Weird Habits Of Successful People presented by AmExOPENForum, and see if you have a lot in common with the crazy successful ones. If you want to succeed, having a few weird habits is probably going to do you good. I think Steve Jobs said it best, “…the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
