Three Things Entrepreneurs Do That Normal People Don't

Updated on July 5, 2017

They Get Enough Sleep

Word on the street is that entrepreneurs don't need or get sleep. It's actually the opposite though.

Due to the fast-paced and often stressful days budding entrepreneurs have, they require more mental downtime to compensate. So they don't go insane, of course. By sleeping earlier and for longer periods of time, entrepreneurs are often refreshed and ready to start their day with the break of dawn.

This is a lot different from most people living in North America. The Sleep Foundation has discovered that over 60% of Americans "experience a sleep problem every night or almost every night". On top of that, another 60% complain that their sleep needs are not being met. This is becoming such a prevalent issue in our society today that the CDC is calling it a "public health epidemic".

Entrepreneurs Barely Brag About Their Accomplishments

Every human being on this earth requires attention. We go crazy without it, and it leads to mental health issues. But a lot of people will go out of their way to receive attention. They'll purposely flaunt and draw attention to their own accomplishments and what they have done "right".

They brag.

Nobody truly has a right to brag. Nobody is ever 100% satisfied. So why pretend that you're living the perfect life that others should be jealous of when you're still working towards creating that dreamscape.

If anyone had the right to brag, it would be successful entrepreneurs. Guys and gals who have tasted that sweet success. Young and starting entrepreneurs know this. So you'll rarely hear them relishing in their own accomplishments.

Entrepreneurs Read. Alot.

Before you argue and say "Hey! I'm a normal person and I read a lot!", let me say that no, you probably don't. Your Twitter and Facebook feed don't count. Over a third of people living in North America didn't make it through a single book last year.That's insane! As an avid reader myself, I understand how valuable and important books can be! They're full of knowledge, insight, and ideas. They spark creativity for your brain and are one of the most fundamental inventions in the history of time itself.

Entrepreneurs understand this. They know they won't learn some key knowledge in school or from social media. They understand that sometimes, you have to visit a library.
