Welcome to Part #2 of this Blog topic. I have been doing some research lately and part of that research is going back on people’s Facebook feed’s to see if they ever talked about New Years Resolutions, or talked about moving away and doing great things, or maybe its them starting a new business and this time they mean it when they say they will do this and make a future for themselves.
What I have discovered is a bunch of lies, I see people talk a lot about what they want to do, but not one of these people actually is doing anything they said they were going to.
The problem with Facebook is that you can’t hide anything once you posted it, now unless you delete it then we have no way of seeing these posts but most people operate on just emotions, once bad shit starts to happen to people that is when you start to see people post things like this……
1). You Have a Health Scare.…so you post about eating right, exercising and being fit but because your health scare did not kill you, you go right back to your old habits and your old ways. You only meant what you said because you felt horrible, but once you got better all those ideas of being healthy went away.
You Lose a Job……this is a classic one, once people lose their income source they freak out because they haven’t prepared for anything in life financially so all they know how to do is post on Facebook and look for sympathy. These people will say things like “I’m tired of being treated unfair”……or “I’m worth more than what I get paid”……then after a couple of weeks, they usually go to a temp agency or a job fair to go and find another low paying, unfair job just like the last one they just lost.
2). Relationship Breakups…another classic one, this is a little different from the Single Ladies one from the first blog on this topic because once a person has a relationship end, well they post about it, most times you see posts that say “I’m not meant to be with anyone”…or you see “Why Me” posts…..that would be like me saying “I will never sell a property ever again because one deal didn’t work out. Words of advice…..stop posting that crap on Facebook, it lets all of us know you are insecure, you are needy, and you have no self worth and as a guy writing this post I can tell you that what I admire in females the most is strength, not beauty, but how well they carry themselves as ladies. Are you confident? can you do what you say you will do? do you have a backbone? I know that confidence is something I look for in all people and chances are if you lack self worth…..then relationships will be impossible for you!
3). When You Go Broke Every Month….At the end of the month or during the holidays I have noticed that people love to let the Facebook world know that they are indeed POOR! they pay their bills and whatever is left over isn’t enough to cover the rest so here is what you will see from these people. The first thing they do is make fun of their situation, they say things like “I’m so broke I can’t afford to pay attention”, this lets everyone know that you are broke and that you are not doing anything about it. The second thing they will do is offer a lame ass excuse as to why they are broke and why they will forever stay broke, they will say things like “I don’t want to be rich”…..but yet they bitch about money and post meme’s on Facebook that say “Pass this on and money will come your way” or they post Lotto winners stories and then say “Must be nice” so I guess making fun of yourself Vs coming up with solutions is a much better approach to fixing your current financial status….good job on that!
The worst part and I guess the Third thing these people will do is they will make broken promises, now I could be a total dick and copy and paste all these actual Facebook posts about these subjects from people’s profiles but I won’t just because I have enough trolls in my life already. The broken promise is this, you will see a broke person panic, then they will announce that they are going to get their act together, they will be more serious about their money and they will work hard to SAVE money and then what?……what is your plan once you have this giant pile of money you plan to create?
The reason this Savings approach is a lie is because you don’t know how to create more money outside of what you work for so once you have savings in the bank you have to know how to make it grow, and if you can’t do that now with the money you make, then you are lying to yourself because the reason you are poor is not because you don’t make enough…..its because you don’t know how money works and because of that you pay the ultimate price in life……YOU STAY POOR! Savings will not help you at all because you will end up spending it on bills and other things so that you don’t fall more into debt or fall behind again in anyway, this is a dead end plan, no one saves their way to success anymore because the rules of money have changed and if you don’t know what I mean by that then you should worry because most of the world knows about these changes and are taking action Today to stay ahead of the game.
To this day 10/10/2015 I still see people posting things on Facebook and still they do nothing to fix their problems, but they will post all about those problems and they post not to get help, but to get sympathy from friends and family. I hate to say this but I have offered to help some of these people and all I ever get is backlash from these people, my favorite line that people use against me is this…..“Not everyone wants to own a business Mike”……..or here’s another good one “I’m not a sales person, I hate sales people” but yet every single time you go on a job interview you are hoping to sell the employer on the idea that you would be a great hire for the company, you will dress nice, and be on your best behavior, you will look and sound the part all right…..because you want something in return……MONEY! just because you are not in sales for a living doesn’t mean you don’t try to be good at it when you need it the most in life and don’t you just wish that you had way more savvy skills on those job interviews? you would be less nervous, you would be more prepared, and you would expect to get the job Vs you stressing about it and just hoping they call you back and the only reason you feel like that after an interview is because you lack the ability to sell yourself as an asset to someone. Most of the time you can bullshit through a job interview and get it, but what type of jobs are you actually interviewing for? are they skilled jobs that actually matter, or are you just applying for a job to fill a position with a company because they will hire anyone who will show up and you need a paycheck right now?
