Why You Want To Be The Dumbest Person In The Room

February 28, 2016

You heard right, you want to be the dumbest person in the room.

So today’s quote isn’t super philosophical, but it’s a message that came across in a few training sessions I’ve been in this week so I wanted to share. It’s encouraging you to be ok with being the dumbest person in the room.

The quote is from Madonna, but it’s a general message a lot of people put out there, this was the most well put quote I could find so it’s the one I’ve chosen to share.

“You don’t want to be the smartest person in the room; you want to be the dumbest in the room. You want to be surrounded by other thinking people who are going to say something that makes you think, ‘Oh my God, that’s an amazing idea. Why didn’t I think of that.”

~ Madonna

As I said, not a fancy quote, but very true.

There’s always room to grow and learn when you’re surrounded by people who are smarter than you.

And that is one of the keys to success.

This morning I had the opportunity to hangout with the best in our company who were openly sharing their success tips for FREE so I was feeling super privileged, and one of the special mentions they all made was in relation to this topic so it was very relevant for me today.

So go ahead, be ok with being the dumbest person in the room, it will do you good.

Much Love
