It can be quite depressing when you think of the fact that you don’t freely express yourself as others do.
Sometimes you might think, the heck, “If only I poured out my mind,” “If only I gave my thoughts,” “If only I hung with the clique,” and so many other if-onlys.
But hey, don’t beat yourself too much. Being an introvert is actually awesome. This means you are awesome, just the way you are.
Don’t believe me? Consider these facts about you.
You rarely speak
This is a plus for you. Every word you speak counts as everyone pays a close attention to hear you speak.
You think things through, view it from different directions and analyze it from every angle before voicing out. As a result, you’re mostly slow to action.
But the plus here is, when you actually do take action, you take logical actions after giving the situation a clearer look.
This exercise boosts your problem-solving skills as seen from the smartest genius of the 21st century, Albert Einstein, who was actually more introverted than any regular person but still received a global recognition and respect.
You have a creative mind
As an introvert, you keep mainly to yourself. You spend long hours alone with your thoughts running to and fro on the nook and cranny of a particular topic or idea.
This, in turn, helps you to come up with new ideas and ways of doing things that an average person can’t possibly come up with.
You care about others
You are an introvert because you’re easily stimulated by things or people around you.
You easily get overwhelmed by feelings of happiness, sadness and that of sympathy.
This makes you more selfless and more conscious of how everyone around you is faring. It makes you want to assist as many people as you can on a daily basis.
Now, what’s more awesome than a quiet, smart, selfless being?
You are calculative
You’d rather spend more time alone crafting ideas and reviewing problems to find a solution than to spend long hours hanging out with people who’d make you feel alone.
This helps you to discover yourself, your skills and abilities and enables you to tap into your creativity juice better than the average person.
As a result, most introverts are really skilled in diverse fields, ranging from art to pop culture.
I know you got some skills too, rock it, you awesome introvert!
You love adventures
Yeah right, you do love adventures.
It might not really be the partying kind, but you love trying out new things, coming up with new ideas and experimenting new ways of getting things done instead of following the existing procedures.
Also, you have beautiful dreams… you dream to explore beautiful earth locations, climb the tallest mountains, meet the coolest people ever or do other super cool stuffs… that’s just awesome.
Introverts, although may seem socially awkward, never lead a boring life. They devise a means to make the long-run of life fun and worthwhile, and that’s just awesome!
You are awesome
Yeah right, you’re simply awesome.
You do awesome things, in awesome ways and at awesome times.
Albert Einstein was labeled introvert, yet, he came up with solutions to numerous world problems today and the world will forever cherish his findings and discoveries
Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, was labeled introvert too and he came up with this unique company with awesome tools and devices, Apple Inc.
The list of many other great introverts who achieved awesome things in life goes on and on. But, one thing they had in common is greatness.
You happened to be an introvert, that’s to say, you have greatness in you too!
To round things up
Never let the fact that you’re less social than others make you shy away from the global recognition you deserve.
One last fact to bear in mind: You’re not alone.
Introverts are never a minority.
Some of the greatest men and women that walked our path were, and are actually introverts.
A list of the 16 super successful introverts, showed just a few of them.
All these successful introverts achieved great and awesome things in life.
So hey introvert, add to list by stepping out of your comfort zone to show the world the awesome side of you!
