It amazes me that so many people are looking for a “magic formula” shortcut that they think will help them lose more weight, sell more widgets, get more followers, or attain more blog readers in a quicker period of time.
What happened to persistence, hard work, consistency, and dedication? It seems dead, or damn near. All these weight loss gurus and social media ninjas are similar to the dude in the trench coat which is lined with fake Rolex watches…STOP falling for this crap. Nothing in life, including success at anything mentioned above, has a shortcut button.
I have issue with those looking for the shortcut because I want them to succeed on their own and see how amazing that feels when they do, and I have issue with the ninja gurus because they are taking advantage of people that may not have the confidence in their own capabilities. I’m all for capitalism but money should not be made from short changing or misleading anyone.
The solution…become your own guru, just for you. Rely on you for the answers by reading, learning, observing, listening, and putting in the actual hours and days and weeks and months of work that your particular success requires. Enjoy the journey because there is never a final destination other than death…so don’t be in such a hurry and by doing so we can deflate the egos of all these self proclaimed super heroes.
Happy Friday, Cheers!!
