FEAR OF MISSING OUT
One of the greatest marketing tools.
Social media used to give me so much anxiety. It felt as though I was living a boring life. While I wasn’t the happiest at that time, I felt that I became more unhappy with every Instagram post that I’ve saw. It seemed that everyone else was having such a better time than me with more girls, better fitness, more travels and more sex.
And here I was, just a sexless virgin scrolling through my Instagram feed.
That is the great myth of social media. It is essentially a life highlight tape. A “look at me”show. A place where each follower
You can have your choice of;
- “Instagram models” asses
- Insane party pics
- Look at my new gf/bf
- White girl turned away facing the sunset on a beach
- I’m fucking working out while you’re on your phone eating unhealthy shit
I read this online sometime ago and you should save it to your quote bank.
There is a great myth that everyone, amazingly, believes: that everyone else is happy, having fun, living life, and you, all alone, are miserable. That everyone is out there, having amazing glorious sex, while you must content yourself with pornos.
It wasn’t until I met some of these people that I used to admire on social media when I began to realize that these people are just like me. They’re anxious, depressed and have relationship issues like everyone else. AND those hot Instagram models take shits. HOT, NASTY ones at that.
When you’re watching someone’s vlog, you’re watching what they edited out, their highlights, what they want you to see. A propaganda film for their life.
When you’re fulfilled in life, you won’t get anxious when you see people’s highlight tapes, because you’ll be highly sexed, well travelled and will have a circle of good supportive friends.
What Social Media Should Be Used For
Because you know that you are a name brand, top shelf product in the sexual marketplace, you will only use Instagram and social media to promote your own agenda. Your personal brand.
- No negative posts
- No shirtless bathroom pictures
- No bad quality images
- No rants on Facebook
- No political/social posts
- No questionable content in general
Social media needs to only be used to up your perceived social status, even if it’s façade. In the moving picture of life, you want to take a single frame, just a glimpse, and put yourself in the highest light possible.
As me move further and further from the analogue age, your digital presence must be known for you not to be left behind. Ideally if you wanted to get into something like YouTube, it would have been perfect several years ago. Now there are too many useless vloggers and ‘makeup” tutorial artists.
Make 2017 the year of the personal brand for yourself. No more selfies. No more political rants. Put yourself in the highest light possible. You will see your Tinder matches double, more connections from cool people, and more perceived social status.
Personally I’m going to grow this blog and get 1000 Instagram followers for my travel photography.
