Reality may be harsh, but the reality is that social media is just NOT for everyone! (Looks of shock, despair & disbelief)
It\’s true. One of my most successful mentors & friends does not have or utilize a single, social account. Many consider him to be super intelligent. I\’m truly honored to learn from & know him.
Well, is he too \’old\’ for social, Caleb? Nope. We all know that seniors are actively using social media accounts these days.
Is he just too busy for it? Nope. Truth is, he CHOOSES not to. His reasons are his own & it has not hindered his personal success in any capacity. He\’s not the only one I know who isn\’t actively engaged on social.
Like $, social media is a tool which can be used to one\’s benefit or detriment; for good, or for evil. For promotion of hatred, or for promotion of love.
We each have personal priorities in our lives. I believe that should help to set our compass as we use social media. Some of us are single. Some of us have families. Regardless, it comes down to proper prioritization.
I saw a recent interview of a friend who left social after growing a large, successful following. As a husband & father, his life had come to a crossroad and he had to make a CHOICE.
He made the decision to delete his account. The result?
“The road to nowhere is paved with good intentions.”
Where does it lead? Yep… you guessed it: Nowhereville.
A land of disappointments, unhappiness, discontentment, lack of fulfillment & numerous missed opportunities. A place where everyone is miserable. A ‘dead end’ that will more quickly lead you to the graveyard… 💀
At some point in every one of our lives, we need to ask ourselves this difficult, but important question: Am I on that road?
Sometimes the warning signs are right in front of us, but we refuse to see or look at them.
At times, it requires a complete halt; a 🛑 dead in our tracks. On other occasions, it may be a simple redirection; a slight ‘detour’ or shift in our internal compass.
We each have an inner-witness, a voice inside the depths of our hearts, desperately trying to guide us in the right direction.
If we wish to avoid the road to nowhere, we must LISTEN TO IT. Then, we must FOLLOW IT!🔑
It requires getting still & quiet, then getting up & taking massive action with faith. I can assure you that if you will do that, your ♥️ will not lead you astray!!
