Every great idea has a backstory.
And I don’t know if you’d call the above meme a “great idea.”
But it was pretty good!
It’s easy enough to find people trolling around, looking for approval from others.
Really easy if you walk around any K-12 school.
And really, really easy if you surf around most social media sites.
And a little harder (but not much) if you look at many work from home forums.
I watched someone try and get approval from someone who clearly wasn’t giving it.
And just like that annoying guy who doesn’t know when to quit with the girl at the bar who keeps sending up stop signals, he kept at it.
I didn’t stick around long enough to see how (or if) it ended. Better things to do.
But it’s kinda rough when someone’s self-worth is attached to anyone else’s opinion of them.
Or in the case of home business, getting a “yes” from any individual.
There are just too many people.
Too many unqualified people, for your product or service, or business opportunity.
Too many people who say they want to play, but really want company. A hand to hold or victim to complain to.
That’s fine. There are places for that kind of thing.
And if you want to be one of them, there will be a line out the door.
Of course, don’t expect to make any money, or have any kind of quality of life for that matter.
But of those seven billion (more as I type this…the number gets bigger all the time!), let’s say there are one tenth of one percent who are lined up with your energy, or your intentions.
You want to sell something to them, or have them join you.
You may even just want to learn from them, or serve them.
That’s 70 million people.
And if only one percent of them are online and accessible to you via social media, that’s still 700,000 people.
Pretty good size friends list!
So tell me again…why would you put your energy into someone who isn’t showing any interest?
You’re good enough.
You always were, even if you didn’t know it.
Now go out and have fun.
And let the right people show up.
Did you ever find yourself trying to “woo” someone who just wasn’t into you?
What woke you up?
What helped you move away, and onto bigger and better things?
