Holy shit Facebook EXPLODED yesterday.
Then the offending picture got taken down
Because it exposed yet another Instagram girl as being full of shit.
Luckily I was able to screenshot it before it was gone forever.
Here it is:
Now when you look very closely you will see that rather than the food
prep company she’s supposed to be advertising.
It’s the HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE that’s in the top left of the picture
that everyone was commenting on. (I stuck a large red arrow on it for you)
It’s just another illustration of everything
that’s wrong with this industry.
It’s being influenced by bullshitters and sell
outs like this girl.
Now here’s why I’m so pissed off.
(and this is in no way an apology its just truly what I think)
Real women, girls, Daughters, sisters, will have been comparing
themselves to people just like this sell out right here.
Thinking “oh if I could only just find out what she does to look like that…..
I wonder what her training looks like,
Whats her diet like?”
See the danger?
The danger of influence when it’s pinned down with zero ethical undertone?
People can be persuaded to do things they wouldn’t normally do.
Buy things they don’t really need like the bullshit
meals this girl is promoting which have zero impact on how she looks,
compared to the Growth Hormone in her fridge
But they don’t care.
The only credentials these people have are their looks/abs/guns whatever.
And they don’t care who they burn or hurt along the way in promoting
themselves to get more likes shares and followers so they can sell their next product.
Because they burn potential clients who could have gotten great results.
But they give up when they don’t see results like they expect from
following their instagram hero’s workout.
It’s not good for any of us who want to make a real career out of this.
So you know me I always want to find the positive in anything.
And I’ve though about this a lot.
And here’s my takeaway.
There are two ways to influence human behaviour:
You can manipulate through fear tactics, urgency, scarcity, novelty.......or ...price.
(like our friend here with her discount codes)
Or you can inspire human behaviour by building products that fit by design.
Products that fit by design are sold by being authentic.
By being true to yourself and not being afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
And when people believe what you believe they become drawn to you for very personal reasons.
There’s real TRUST built.
That’s what forms lasting relationships with clients.
My purpose today is to be crystal clear in my message...
I'm not totally anti FitFam... There is shed loads of girls and lads that have given encouragment to 10's, 100's even 1000's of people to get up off there arse and do something about their poor health and fitness.
Thats alot more than most of us can say.. But do it the right way, the moral way.
You get what you WORK for - Not what you WISH for
Do something long enough and it will become who you are
PS - My opinion is it's about how you feel (full stop).. Not how you feel about how you look!! Does that even make sense??
