Actual message I received:
“I just LVE all you’re posts! Have you ever considered starting your fitness journey?”
So a couple of things here, the first being I get what this person is trying to do, but the problems are 1) it’s clearly a generic copy/paste message, and 2) if you are gonna SAY you love all my posts, please realize that I’m gonna know that’s nonsense the second you pose your question, because while I try not to be ‘in your face’ about my fitness journey, it’s at least evident I’ve STARTED my fitness journey.
Sorry, but messages like that ring extremely hollow and inauthentic to me, and I think we as a society, as entrepreneurs, as network marketers… as HUMANS, are better than feigning interest in someone without being bothered to at least take a quick glance at their page.
Come to me real or don’t come at all ✌🏼#truthbomb
Just my .02, you may keep the change – and if I’m being honest, 3) your*
There is only one.
You were gifted with a huge responsibility – to be YOU, to let the world see YOU, and to do what makes YOU happy.
Tall order? Perhaps… but you can handle it *wink*
Be nothing less than 100% yourself.
Have you ever complimented a perfect stranger?
I never used to, but more and more, I find myself just blurting out “I love your shirt” or something else. Usually impulsively which for me, adds to the feeling associated with it. Because have you ever noticed how someone smiles and lights up when complimented?!
I think the world could use more complimentary offerings and less critical ones – what say you?
As HARD as this is (and it IS hard, whew!) this is so worthwhile.
There is something inherently beautiful about owning who you are, and allowing others to see that.
And when we encourage others to do so as well? Therein lies the secret to world peace, me thinks.
First Monday of the new year! Let’s talk M I N D S E T.
I stand by this opinion with every fiber of my being. I get it, taking risks, being vulnerable, failing… all of them are scary. No one WANTS such things to happen… but that is life. An oops means you at least tried, you know one way or another. How can failing forward possibly be worse than never trying at all?
