Travesty Of Reality Of Social Media – Part 02

about-us-3

 

As promised, these are my thoughts about social networking as a whole. As I have mentioned previously, social networking has become unavoidable to everyone in today’s world. For those who use them effectively gain so much into their lives, and with that they have elevated their standards of living in a pace that wouldn’t have come through, had such platforms weren’t available.

But, there are some concerns regarding them. Think about the people who feed contents to such channels and pages. My target is not the large scale, business related media. Think about the other small and medium size businesses and even the individuals who publish contents. Clearly they want many followers and subscribers as possible, as that is one way of attracting new customers to their businesses, or even generating a passive income source.

Anyway, carefully watch what sort of information they publish in them. I come across so many such materials as I’m passionate about trading, and since there are no proper mentors in hand, I need to do constant internet search to read articles regrading them.

Almost all of them publish the life they have succeeded and how they enjoy the results they have taken after so many hard work. It’s not the hard working part you can find in them, but the life after that. Remember, that is crucial to boost your motivation. But remember that’s not enough to get there, too. How much you read and watch such material, you won’t be able to get there unless you start working today. That’s what you need to figure out by yourself. They won’t teach exactly what you need to do to get where they are right now, and it’s nearly impossible to do so as well. So, it’s important not to waste time following similar materials over and over again, and spend time by watching and reading them only.

Plan your life as early as possible, and use the social media to help remind your goals over and over again. Stop wasting time by just enjoying what you see on them. I know, they are highly addictive, and who doesn’t love to watch and read the success stories or some luxurious lives lived by others? Keep asking the question whenever you enjoy them, “How have they done it? What should I do to get there?”

Also remember, people won’t usually publish their difficult times, heart broken moments, how they screw up daily basis while they are trying to achieve their targets. Mostly, those lessons are invisible to the outside world. It’s an individual’s job to find them out, by themselves.

Keep in mind, if you are comfortable and utterly happy about your life, and haven’t got your heart broken, or screwing up your emotions, and even money; you might not have tried to do anything new!

Keep pushing forward, while keeping the stories about soaring by others only to make you focus on your goals and to motivate yourselves. Try to take calculated risks in life. The more you get matured, the more you will regret not doing so in the past!

Secondary Plans

If someone asked why we work, there would be whole lot of different answers coming from people. Apparently that’s where we are all heading to, right after finishing the education in schools and colleges. At that time, we all wanted to enter the professionals’ clubs, and to feel the next level of class in the society. Dreams were there like imagining how we would look like driving our dream car, giving away the nicely designed visiting cards to strangers and even travelling to exotic locations all around the world. That’s pretty much the way how we used to plan our future, may be in next five or ten years.

How many of you had dreams like that? And, how many of you have actually ticked off the checklists you used to scribble back then? After eight years of working in four companies, those are the sort of questions I ask myself now, usually before going to bed. Yes, I have done something for my life for sure, but those things were not the ones I usually planned when I was in the university. How did it happen? And why the priority list keep changing?

As we have learned through various subjects, everything seems to be relative. Now that I look back at the times I studied, the things have changed quite a lot around us, both in terms of personal and social life. Change is universal. Everything and everyone around us keep changing, day after day. How can we have steady and fixed goals in such an environment? I believe that’s why we have little slippages in planning our future.

Money. The cause for all problems. The thing we need to accomplish most of the dreams we had. There is a controversy of defining happiness with money. I usually don’t like to answer that question as I realize money plays an important role in everything we do. That’s quite obviously the same reason for entering the professionals’ club, having dreams of earning heaps of money and use them to travel world etc.

Anyway, sooner or later, we all come to a stage in order to judge ourselves about past decisions we have made. Some might be delighted with them, while some will regret. There are ups and downs in life whether you like it or not. But, the most importantly, you need to take charge of your life, whenever you feel like you need a boost to reach what you have already planned to do, before you become physically challenged to do so.

Those were the same reasons why I continuously tried at least two different things in a year to start another income source. If you could dream of your future back then, why we stop trying to make them happen now? I remember I have attempted ten times in the last eight years to form a new business, but I failed. But I didn’t want to stop as something keep nagging me that I’m not quite done yet, and there are other possibilities to choose from. That made me to step out of the comfort zones and start discovering other markets which I didn’t have any kind of knowledge and experience. Everything started from scratch and I invested time to learn most of the things, mostly by myself.

Hustle. Hustle and hustle until you find the right path. That doesn’t mean you have to be careless. Every month and year brings you enough experience to deal with new challenges in life, and it’s up to you to identify what taught you the most valuable lesson. As I am quite confident of the thing I’d be doing in the year starting from now, I’ll post that particular story in future posts. (And, I believe that’s not quite that far …)
