“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
–Steve Jobs tweet
This quote from Steve Jobs inspires me! What great contributions he has made to the world!
Are you a “crazy one”? Are your great ideas out there? Or have they been muffled by the crowd?
Often you have to persist, explain and prove yourself to get listened to.
As an introvert, I know I think a lot and often see things differently than others. One of the problems with those who think a lot is that when they explain their ideas to someone who hasn’t put the thought into it, the other person just can’t see the big picture and often misses the genius of your thoughts. I’ve often been dismissed as having crazy ideas. I now know that the time I spend thinking is a great strength and that great ideas come from it. Often you have to persist, explain and prove yourself to get listened to. But it will pay off.
I’m crazy enough to think that introverts will soon be more widely understood and embraced for their unique strengths, rather than people to change, fix or ignore.
So here’s to my fellow introvert authors, bloggers, and tweeters. Together we can change the world.
