Personality Traits of People I Admire

Yesterday I re-read Derek Sivers’ Domino Project book, “Anything You Want”. I really like him and admire him a great deal. He knows who he is.

I made a list of multimillionaires, billionaires, entrepreneurs, artists, writers, actors/actresses I admire and I realized how much they have in common…

  • they are nonconformist
  • they are leaders whether anyone follows them or not (they don’t care one way or the other)
  • they DO their own thing
  • they are themselves without apology or explanation
  • they know who they are and what they believe in
  • they are masters of their ‘trade’ vs. a jack of all trades
  • they have a ton of different interests and as they got older made time for them all
  • they have a passion for their work and their life
  • they do what they love first
  • they choose for themselves first
  • they are super creative; highly intelligent; multi-talented
  • they enjoy spending time alone and in most cases it is an absolute necessity to their well-being
  • they are devoted to their ’causes’ and once they made their money and experienced a certain degree of success gave even more to the people, charities and organizations they believed in (even setting up their own organizations to give back)
  • they did what they had to do to make ends meet & support themselves and their families until doing what they love supported them; all the while never forgetting that doing what they had to do was only temporary

Someday I hope people describe me this way.
