Why Do Big Personal Accomplishments and Creative Endeavors Get Ignored on Facebook and Social Media?
Humans by nature are very creative people. Yet, on social media, there is this idea that if you create something, you should be ostracised, and that your work and creative spirit should not be celebrated.
For years, I have wondered why this was the case. I have come to the conclusion that it all comes down to envy. People want to be creative, but they waste hours a day on social media. When they see someone else creating something, the immediate thought is how jealous they are of this person. Instead of building up that person and making them feel that they should continue to create and add to the world, instead, those closest to them completely ignore it, hoping that it will somehow go away, or that the person will become just like the rest of them. In Robert Greene's book, The 48 Laws of Power, he talks about how being too perfect can cause people to actually turn on someone. Could being creative in the world also cause people to turn on you?

Is Marky the Zuck making you lethargic for life? Do you want to build an empire but that empire seems to be a Facebook serfdom? I know the feeling. Time is a gift -- and an extremely powerful one! It's going to blow your mind to realize, but when you get off Facebook, you are going to have a ton of extra time at your disposal! And imagine the things you can create with that time. Sure, some people won't like it. That's part of the excitement. It's more fun to do something that some people don't like than it is to sit on Facebook and try to rile people up with stupid memes. I mean, honestly, I'd rather write a book or build a six-figure business than upset my worst high school enemy with a post dissing his political party. Do you get what I'm saying? Now is the time! Once you value time the way it deserves to be valued, you will see things happen. Try it!
