I’ve unfollowed some BIG people!
Since becoming a business and mindset coach, I have followed and watched many other coaches, bloggers and networkers across social media.
It’s great because it means my news feeds are filled with positivity, I get to connect and collaborate with great people and learn from other fab coaches.
I have had to to unfollow quite a few major names, because sadly, like every profession, there are a few that just don’t sit well with me.
Now I want to put it out there that I am a HUGE supporter of my peers, but I also HATE bullsh*t and my friends…I’m seeing a lot of bullsh*t.
- I’m seeing people tell their followers one thing, but then not do it themselves.
- I’m seeing people talk about positivity and then spend their whole Facebook lives discussing how amazing THEY are!?
- I’m seeing fake lives played out in front of me and it’s giving people a false impression and making people feel they aren’t enough.
Let me just put out there that MOST successful people had a period of lack of success, had some time when they had to work for it, had failure and often we just miss that bit.
I’m totally alright with the fake it, till you make it ethos, IF and this is a big IF, it is mixed with truth and vulnerability. Honestly, I am far more interested in people with flaws and vulnerabilities, than blind perfection.
I cannot bare hearing media trained footballers speaking after a game “Well we did our best and well today the game just wasn’t ours…” YAWN! WATCH WAYNE ROONEY HERE boring the world with his media trained post match interview
Tell me something real! WATCH THIS interview with Kevin Keegan, old Newcastle United Manager for something real. Yes he’s angry, yes it’s hilarious, but it’s honest! He wanted to beat them!
I see the same thing online, ‘gurus’ and their followers telling me the same stuff, even copy and pasting it. Seriously though!?
I’m seeing stuff that just doesn’t sit well with my gut and it’s that I trust.
So I unfollowed the ones that made my head spin and I have decided that this year, I shall switch off the noise, otherwise I think we can get caught up in other peoples styles, vibes and not walk our own path.
I really try to keep it real with you all and 2017 is about all out truth (even when it stings!) We learn when it stings though, right?
I want to ask you something too:
- What do you want this year?
- How could I help with that?
I want to really get to know you this year, because this year you are going to create the life you love, IF you’re willing to give a dam good go!
I also have an audio for you on exactly that: https://soundcloud.com/iamhollymatthews/boss-your-life
Lets be true to ourselves and remind ourselves daily that social media is only a fraction of peoples real lives and we are doing just great!
