Today my post centers around how being a complete idiot can help you find success...
5 things a complete idiot has to their advantage when it comes to SUCCESS:
They’re too stupid to procrastinate and analyse what they “should” be doing, and they just do it.
Some of us use our brains in overtime, analysing a proposition, risk or opportunity both ways from Sunday without ever making a move on it. Due to us being so damn intelligent, there are endless possibilities and considerations, reasons why it’s not a good idea, things that have to be planned or thought out first. A complete idiot on the other hand, sees a great opportunity, it feels good, and nec-minnut they doing it! Seems like a much quicker gap between where one is and where one wants to be, doesn’t it!
They’re too stupid to honour their inner conflicts enough to sabotage their endeavour, or undermine their own abilities.
It’s not that a complete idiot doesn’t have emotions. It’s just that they’re less complex. This feels good, this feels not so good. If it doesn’t feel good I might still do it anyway because I get a kick out of risk. The average, complex, emotionally deep human is a self-loathing, doubting, past experience remembering, future fearing creature. Complete idiot’s thinking, “Boring!” Too tedious a task for the complete idiot to become so deeply introspective, he/she simply prefers to believe in themselves undoubtedly and of course, stupidly (“Yeah! I can lift this car off the ground!”) or it might be something more beneficial like, “Yeah I can win this writing competition! Yeah, I can make lots of money through starting my own business!” The thing is, success can be found in many ways but how would you know? You’re not a complete idiot are you!
They have no shame in following someone else’s successful strategies or systems, or looking up to someone who is doing what they’ve always dreamed of.
When we’re used to being the leader of our pack, the smartest in the class or have gotten used to a success system that seems to work for us, our intelligent brains analyse new systems fearfully. Trying something new effectively makes us “learners” again, and we’re way too smart for that! Complete idiot, on the other hand, has absolutely no self-pride when it comes to following someone else’s lead and sometimes, through pure adoration is able to mimic a successful person’s behaviours and strategies to a tee, finding similar success. How idiotic….right?
They overcome trauma with an idiotic lack of memory or hindsight
Oh trauma. We intelligents carry it around like a piece of war memorabilia. We remember exactly what happened and why it created fear in us, as well as why we never want to go through that, or anything with even a skerrick of similarity to it, ever again. And you guessed it, because we’re so intelligent we can find millions of ways to link past trauma with any possible future opportunities. Complete idiot has meanwhile forgotten what he/she went through and is looking at the new opportunity before them with the wonder of a newly born infant. Complete idiot can’t even link 2 and 2 together, let alone a connection between what lies before them now and their past experiences! You need some sort of education for that, don’t you? Guess who’s more likely to try something new?
They give without expecting to receive.
Complete idiot never plans that far ahead, and doesn’t actually believe they should receive anything from anyone really. Things received are a bonus. Idiotically, what really makes him/her happy is seeing other people happy, successful, joyful. Complete idiot gives to others simply to see that stuff in action. They’re too stupid to know that when you give you open up a beautiful cycle of receiving too, but in the end, they’re the ones doing it while the intelligent ones are busy planning their trade-offs and “deals”.Hope you enjoyed, until next time!
