Don’t be shy to be crazy. Don’t be shy to stand apart. The crowd isn’t you.
Someone asked this on Quora.com: “How can I be as great as Bill Gates (Microsoft), Steve Jobs (Apple), Elon Musk (Tesla), Richard Branson (Virgin)?”
And the wife of Elon Musk herself replied this:
“These people tend to be freaks and misfits who were forced to experience the world in an unusually challenging way. They developed strategies to survive, and as they grow older they find ways to apply these strategies to other things, and create for themselves a distinct and powerful advantage. They don’t think the way other people think. They see things from angles that unlock new ideas and insights. Other people consider them to be somewhat insane. Be obsessed.”
