We could pretend that social media is the greatest thing since sliced bread or we could look at the reality of the situation. So many people praise the benefits of social media, but where are the benefits? All I see is a bunch of people running around trying to get “likes.”
What in the heck is a like? It is a quick hit of dopamine for you and it soothes you temporarily, until you need another hit. So instead of doing hard work, working out, or making money, you're on the social media searching for a like. Give me a break. Likes don't pay the bills, money pays the bills and you'll never make any money if you don't break the addiction to likes.
On the flip-side, you have the people who actually DO the “liking”. These are the people who live vicariously through the social media superstars. Instead of going out and living their own life, they're stuck in the bedroom looking at Billy Big-Guns on the social media and sending a goddamn like to him.
Or maybe you're one of the 10,000 guys who like Becky Bubble-Butt's social media posts because she has a nice butt. Guess what she'd say to you, “you're nice, but I like Billy Big-Guns” and you're so weak and meek from social media you'd say “yeah, I like him too too. Thanks for talking to me. Byeiloveyousomuch.”
This is how you fix this nonsense…
Here Are 10 Reasons To Stop Using Social Media
1) Social media saps your energy
Social media is the biggest thief or your energy because you spend all day looking at it. Your energy could be better spent building an internet business. You're already on the internet anyway, why are you wasting so much time liking things and living through other men when you could be building your own internet business, making money and living a great life.
2) You will be more creative when you quit social media
Why create anything after you've already gotten your like? That's the same thing the junkie says after he scores his marijuana. Why do any work, man? After you get a like, you've already gotten your dopamine, your “relief.” There is no reason to continue working after you have already gotten the recognition and that's why you don't do any work after becoming addicted to social media. You get a quick little hit for doing a tiny bit of work and it's enough to satisfy your urge to create (though it leaves you deeply unfulfilled). There are almost no great living artists today, that is because everybody is addicted to social media. Instead of creating great work, they make social media posts and wait around for likes.
3) Your ability to focus will be better when you quit social media
The draw of social media is that it is constant entertainment. The second you try to get away, Billy Big-Guns posts another social media snippet that draws you in. When you're done with him, Becky Bubble-Butt posts something and on and on and on. All of this constant multi-tasking leaves you with a debilitating weakness: you no longer have any ability to actually focus on doing one thing. Actually, you have no ability to focus on anything at all. You become so accustomed to focusing for 5 seconds at a time and then moving on. You become basically functionally retarded when you're on social media.
4) Social media is an addiction
Social media is an endless cycle of “liking” or getting “likes”. What happens after the instant hit of dopamine goes away? You run around like a sewer rat chasing more likes or more things to like. Eventually you chase yourself into the ground. Go to a mirror and look at your eyes for god's sake. Social media addiction is as bad as marijuana addiction because it's everywhere. Nearly every person is infected with social media syndrome. Don't you think it's time to break that nasty social media addiction? They can't break their disgusting habits but you can break yours.
5) Social media kills your patience
These darn kids today want everything yesterday. You know why they have no patience? Because these social media websites gives them instant gratification, like a rat in a cage who pushes the right button and gets a hit of sugar. Because you get instant gratification, you have no concept of waiting longer to get better things. You become petulant, a permanent spoiled child. In the real world you MUST be patient because success never comes right away, success takes a long time to come. The goddess of success hates impatient people and she tries her hardest to make you quit as quickly as possible. Social media junkies are conditioned to quit at the first sign of having to do any work.
6) Social media doesn't actually work as “media” or advertising
Social media only works as advertising if you are an already established businessman or artist. Otherwise it doesn't work. This should be obvious but it's not. So many young and hungry dreamers want the money that comes with the internet business and they actually believe that getting on social media is going to do it for them. They're in a for a rude awakening because nobody gives a damn about you until you make them give a damn. How do you make them care about you in the first place? By creating great work. The more time you waste on social media, the less time you work on creating something great. It makes no sense to stay on social media for a moment of mediocrity when you could be building a lifetime of greatness.
7) After you quit social media your work ethic will be better
After you quit social media, your work ethic will become better because you will actually have the time, and the energy, to actually do work instead of looking at other people's pretend lives. Social media previously took up all of your time. When you quit social media there will be a void of time, you will need something to do. You can use that time to be bored or you can use that time to work. The best thing you can do is devote that time to doing deals, making money and creating great art.
8) You will have better posture after you quit social media
Have you ever been outside and actually looked at other people? This is a serious question as you may be one of those people who never look away from their phones. Do this next time you go outside, pull your black eyes away from your phone for ten seconds and look at other people. You will notice one thing: all of those people have their heads down, glued to their phones. Why is that important? Because that kills your posture. Instead of walking straight up like a man, you walk with your head down so much it becomes permanent. Science says we already evolved away from chimpanzees, don't go back! Throw the social media accounts away and walk upright.
9) You will be smarter after you quit social media
Everybody starts their social media addiction with vigor and everybody always ends frazzled. Does this look familiar?
Like, like, like, like, dislike, like like like dislike likelikelikedislikelike liek like lklelekl dislike like sklilekl slike like dislike like lik llilekl.
That is your brain on social media. You start out smart, but the longer you stay on social media the more retarded you become. Get smart and quit the social media obsession.
10) Quitting social media will unlock the door of your mental prison
When you're stuck in social media world, you're actually stuck in a mental prison and you never escape. Even when you're outside, you're still on your stupid phone looking at social media. You may as well be in a fluorescent office 24 hours per day. You are meant to be outside, to roam free like a wolf, howling at the moon and fishing in the sun. You are not meant to stare at a phone all day liking Billy Big-Guns' social media posts. Eventually you'll start lashing out at your social media superstars because you're locked inside all day and need to vent. Despite all your rage, you'll always be locked up like a rat in a cage until you say goodbye to social media. Life is meant to be lived outside, so go outside and live life.
How to Stop Using Social Media
Go cold turkey. Develop iron self-dicipline and just stop using social media. You'll feel like you're missing out only for the first day and then you'll feel like such a fool for wasting all of your time on social media when there are better things to do. Namely, building your body in the gym and building your business on the internet. Instead of being busy liking other men like Billy Big-Guns, you can be busy laughing all the way to the bank like his big brother, William Winner-Wolf.
