I Don’t Want Followers II

In my last post, I Don’t Want Followers!, I left you with some questions that could be applied to your use of social media — or any other way you invest your life energy moment-by-moment.

I know creating a space between Albert Ellis ‘muster-bating’ and Dr. Cortney Warren’s imperative to Choose Honesty,  is far from easy.

Positive Psychology taught me, and I believe, that when you use your developed strengths to re-craft a task or situation in a way that you are actually using your strengths then do the task or engage in the situation…you feel better about your engagement in the activity.

Happiness, life satisfaction and creating a meaningful life is not about creating a 100% perfect life — whatever the flip that is!  It is about devoting yourself 100% of the time to creating a life where you are skilled at seeing The Upside of Your Dark Side, and  are able to create a Platform because you know the Give and Take of life success.

So maybe when I was a little girl I did not dream of growing up and ‘having followers’.  Then again, when I was a little girl I did not dream of making books an integral part of my life.  Heck, when I was a little girl I did not even like to read!   All that not withstanding, as a much older girl I appreciate that each new experience helps me understand if I want to lead, follow or get out the way.

For now, for me, Twitter is hitting on the Don’t Die Principle:  You can make excuses or your can achieve your goals.  I choose to follow my own advise and see where my business twitter experiment leads me.  Happy tweeting and please follow me at @DrSuccess
