Don’t follow the BS
So how do you know the difference between fact and hype?
It’s a tough one. Social media is amazing. It is an incredible tool to share positivity, connect with like minded people all over the world and for me to build a business that has no limits. However it also has the power to become all consuming, define our mood and motivation and can become a source of self worth.
Social media is a ‘media’ it is not ‘real life’. It is no more accurate than the daily mail ♀ sure it’s funny and fun and allows things like this group to be possible but it’s important you find a way to cut through the BS.
My top tips:
1. Only follow people who actually inspire you. Not bodies or people who think will. A tiny waist on a 22 year old is NOT true motivation. It will only lead you to feel shit you’re no longer 22 with a 22 inch waist.
2. Only follow what you’re passionate about. I’m passionate about personal development and puppies – those kinda posts fire me up and make me smile so why the hell am I following booty queens and models? Hello unfollow.
3. Post content you want to post. Not what you think will get interaction. Integrity is what leads to true happiness. Business pages need to look slick, need to have a thought process and a strategy – a personal one should be about expression.
4. Like attracts like – if you post negative moany stuff – expect that to come back to you. Focus on finding a positive or don’t post at all. Gratitude is key to this – post on this to come ..
All in all. Just know social media isn’t real
Life – it’s just a highlight reel of people want you to see. Never compare because you never know what’s going on behind closed doors.
