Couple good side effects of those habits are:
- You'll be respected by your peers, people will listen to you
- You'll be recognized as a leader, a good leader

Can use those as indicators too..

I don't see how sharing or not sharing info relates to being successful or unsuccessful, that part makes little sense.

Wow this is very true. I agree with it.
And 5k~ I think that when you share things, you are successful because you are helping others maybe?

Sometimes, when we share, others take no notice but some do, so that may make sense...my theory was that the successful people don't share how they succeed and that's why non-sharing works for success and not unsuccessful people.


We could ask the author

There is a guy at work who embodies almost everything on the left hand side of the graphic. He is the most terrifically positive and nice person. But all the same, I sometimes wish he would fall down a well.
