Why is it that people are obsessed with other people liking them?
There is no reason for it. Because the reality is that most people are just miserable mother-fuckers.
That’s really it.
I want you to stop worry about people liking you and start being yourself… not everyone is supposed to like you.
Don’t worry about somebody needing to like you. I’m sick of it and I’m sick of hearing about, “Well what if people don’t like me?… I’m afraid that my clients aren’t going to like what I do because I want to be authentic”. Or… “I’m afraid that somebody’s not going to like me for who I am.”
Let me clue you in Einstein… In some point in time you’re going to do, you’re going to say, you’re going to be the person that you really are and then you’re going to be found out anyway and then all that stupid fuckin’ work you put into not being yourself, won’t fuckin’ work… and then you’re back to square one. Boo fuckin’ hoo.
When you creating a Boot Camp Marketing campaign I want you to realize that you have to not care about what other people think. Because if you go on filling your head with, ‘Oh what is that person going to think”?
How will I do this so that people like me?’
At some point in time you’re going to be using so much energy, so much time and it’s going to be for nothing. I would rather you move forward, create forward momentum and be yourself. Be who you really are… people will be attracted to you and who you are… not what you are supposed to be.
Now if you are fucking asshole and you really need professional help, then you know what? Get professional help. Whatever you have to do. But I want you to be who you really are. And present that to the public… you won’t regret it… ever.
Being who you really are is going to help you in the long run. Because when you’re not the person that you are in private and you’re doing things just to make people like you, it’s called a lie, a fraud, a cheat… whatever you feel like calling it… and at some point in in life you’re going to have to reinvent yourself and get different friends or get other people to join your merry little band of lies.
Now you may have a problem right now that you want better friends. Well if you are authentic to who you are, you’re going to surround yourself with people that are attracted to you and will help you become “a better version of yourself””.
So I want you to stop trying to make people like you and be authentic to yourself. Be genuine and look in the mirror and get a good look and say listen, you know, who am I? What am I about, and what do I really stand for?…
Then go on an attract the people you really want in your life.
