Ego is not a dirty word said the skyhooks! I would have to agree, often in social media people can make the mistake of confusing the idea of how many followers, friends or circles they have is related to how much success you have, no doubt quantity is important, you need to have a decent size audience, however you need to have a quality audience that you can connect with and relates to your goals and goes where you want your opportunity, website or blog to be.

Getting back to ego, as the famous song by skyhooks states if I didn’t have an ego I wouldn’t be standing here today singing to you today. Ego is necessary, we need to think highly of ourselves, give ourselves the best outlook, however this isn’t to be confused with egotistic which has no regard for others. At the end of the day our life is in our hands, so if we have high opinion of ourselves, at times when people doubt us we are then aware of our good qualities, our strengths.

It is these strengths that our social media profiles need to demonstrate so we can focus getting our quality followers, friends and circles and increase it’s quantity. I guess at the end of the day you need to know yourself, be yourself and be happy with who you are and let your tweets, posts and profile reflect you and allow that good side of you to shine.

Take care and keep the faith 🙂

Selma- Political vilification leads to bad business

SELMA

Hump Day Post

Edition 8

I was going through my twitter feed and I noticed a tweet from Oprah about her film she starred in and produced, Selma, the true story of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights for African Americans. Immediatley I developed an interest in what the story was about, I had heard about Martin Luther King and the march on Washington, but I hadn’t heard of Selma, however I had heard of Bloody Sunday. Selma was called Bloody Sunday for a very good reason, its the day where the civil rights march was stopped by a line of state troopers who put on gas masks, and then attacked with clubs, horses, tear gas and other weapons.

I looked up the real footage videos uploaded to YouTube and I was quite appalled and even felt physically ill, they were clearly bullying these passive people and hoping nobody was watching or would care. Placing one’s emotions aside for a moment, to villify a particular group and stop them from voting is ridicoulous and not to mention socially counter productive. The more participating in a society, economy to a sporting team the better that thing becomes, you don’t even have to be a player you could just be a supporter, it always makes it better, this is virtually common knowledge.

The more people communicate with one another and show empathy the more something great grows, which is what clearly happened at Selma. Bloody Sunday was watched by millions all over the world on their television sets. The day is now remembered and basic civil rights is honoured, however it does make you wonder as to why it all began in the first instance, it doesn’t take much effort to see or feel for another being, we all didn’t start caring and feeling because of television or internet.

Some people have empathy and some do not, its part of nature, and those without empathy will always look for an excuse, race, gender anything that is different to them, having said that it seems to me we must get used to the fact that at some stage or other we will have to fight for empathy not only for our need of basic justice but for business too, you can’t have a market place without people and you can’t just do business with one kind of people, you miss out on so many opportunities.

Take care and keep the faith 🙂
