Has anyone else noticed that most successful people are not the sharpest tool in the shed?
I thought about it for a while and came up with my own conclusion. Don't get me wrong, a lot of bright people are very successful too, but it seems to me that sometimes I see more idiots doing a lot better.
What I think is happening is that their simple minds actually believe they are rocket scientists and know just about all there is to know in life. In return they have confidence and a lot of it.
This confidence goes through the roof with these people. You see it everyday with your average d**chbag. Why else would they wear shirts with bedazzled jewels, skulls, and hearts on them at the same time? They are gods gift to Earth and that is what sells.
They really believe in themselves to the point that they are confident they know what they are talking about even though they have just a shimmer of a clue of what they are doing. They can also get a client to believe it too. They are like the guy on that show "Pretender" without the IQ. Heck, sometimes if I run across one of these guys trying to sell me something I believe them too. Its only later I realized what just happened.
You could say I am a hater. I think I have my moments where I am as air headed as can be, then other times I am a genius. But do not doubt these guys, they know the secrets to the universe.
I may say these successful people are dumb, but they have taught me one of the greatest lessons that is helping me in life today and that is- If I can be as confident in myself as a dumb successful person is than I can do anything because I think I may just be 2 cents smarter. Really I just may be a GENIUS! Time for me to get some bedazzled shirts and flip flops.
