Not everyone will like you. ESPECIALLY when it comes to social media. In fact: If everyone DOES like you? You might take that as a sign of imminent danger. That you're 1) Being lazy. And NOT challenging anyone's belief system or comfort zone. 2) Watching too much TV. And bouncing absurd ideas off other misinformed folk - simply to solicit their agreement. 3) Going OUT of your way to be liked. Which I'd personally call a BIG 'no no.' As this often undermines your sense of self-worth. Or, worst of all, 4) All of the above. Yikes. I say...
FEAR NOT, being unliked.
We live in a conformist world. Where children are raised from birth to, 'fit in.' Where a person's ability to survive, often depends upon his willingness to align his values with the oft-misled, misinformed, shockingly unfit 'masses.' And where said masses? Well, they garner a HUGE amount of their lifestyle habits from one, rather suspect source: TV. You can do better than that.
Define your SELF.
Allow no one to do it for you. Write down YOUR life purpose. It may conflict with that of others. Yet act on it daily. Sure, you may offend a few folks along way. I'd put money on it, in fact. As most have worked so hard to 'fit in.' That they view anyone who DOESN'T as a threat to their comfort zone, their identity - even to their world view. Talk about indoctrinated! No matter. It's tough to please everyone. So don't try. And when you DO offend someone? Just recall the words of T. McKenna. Which have often helped me...
'The cost of sanity in THIS society, is a certain level of alienation.'
Take action in spite of it.
In fact: Go ahead, I say... Offend someone today! Before trying this in the 'real world?' Practice on social media. Which can be a good testing ground. To discover whether or not you TRULY believe in your chosen life path or purpose. Hint: You'll know you're on the right track. When you love what you do. When time stops while you're doing it. And when your work garners the odd rude comment, or reply.
Which WILL occur. When you challenge a belief system or two. The bright side? Think of it this way: You're doing 'paradigm-challenging' work. Which is the ONLY type that's ever moved humanity forward. YOU be the one to move it. Act on your purpose. Opinions be damned! If you'd like a better world for all? Bet on it, my friend: You're going to like your results...
Much more than you'd planned.
P.S. Want to have a truly GREAT impact on humanity? Well, there's one best way to do it, I say. And that's to lead by example. Which is awfully tough to do, if you're not physically fit.
