We're in a hilariously interesting time of vanity, self service, self promotion, and even social media stardom. Social media has given everyone a chance at a faux and sometimes very real "spotlight." It's given everyone with an internet connection a platform and voice. As a fan of social media and it's reach, I'm not mad at it at all...but I do want to discuss some things. If you own the account you can post whatever you like, I'm no censor....but I do have some questions.
My question is, in the middle of the "Hey look at me?!?" and "Here's what I'm about to do!" posts, who are you trying to convince? I know everyone has become their own publicist....but is it for you or for us?
Here's the reality. As vain as we are, most of us like the spotlight...if even just a little. I've even seen the "Most moves less announcements posts...and then what do you see under it? A fucking announcement! lol Because Merica. Some people aren't what they post to be...and that's okay....but let's not fake ourselves out.The worst person we can lie to is ourselves. It's cool to be in front of the camera, and in the lights...in the building stage of the dream...but let's not stay there. We can post all day about what we're going to do but until we do it...it means nothing.
We've all been guilty of this and it's your feed so post what you like but If you're posting about it more than you're stepping towards it, it's time for a reality check. Am I saying you shouldn't post motivational stuff for yourself or others? Absolutely not. I've done it, currently do it, and I'm all for motivating yourself and or others....and posting motivational material is better than posting twerk videos.... but here's the skinny. You must take action that will move you towards your goals. Develop a sense of urgency for your own life. Stop examining and explaining and start doing. In the great words of DMX Talk is cheap muthafuckas!
Run towards a goal that will give you a greater sense of purpose, accomplishment, and satisfaction in your own life. Make it happen!
Fuck the lights and camera....take ACTION!
So what are you going to DO today?
