So I want to give some credit for this headline , but for the life of me I can’t think where I read it. I listen to so many books on audible and a lot are about being the best version of yourself, being successful that kind of thing.
I don’t want to refer to them as “self help” books, I hate that expression for some reason, don’t know why. It makes it sound all “wishy washy” and pathetic.
I guess I enjoy reading (or rather listening these days) to books about every day “normal” whatever that is, people, who have basically got their shit together, worked hard (and consistently) at something and made something of themselves. Changed their trajectory in life, found a new path, a better path.
As I’m writing this I want to say, Dan Meredith, “how to be F**king Awesome“. Maybe that’s where I saw it and I think he said he got it from someone else (there’s nothing new on the planet!)
Anyway the type of books I enjoy the most are written by people who are like me. They get to a point in life where they think “F*** this shit”, I want more from life” and then they start their journey towards that and on the way they learn stuff, about themselves and all sorts of stuff and then they write a book and tell us all about it and share what they’ve learnt along the way, and that helps other people who are a bit behind them (on their journey to discover a better life, not literally standing behind them)
Anyway the point is (and I realise that this is all sounding a bit like Frodo’s epic journey in Lord of The Rings), the point is that, we love to read about people who have done what we want to do because that gives us the courage and belief that we can do it and it keeps us going ourselves.
The reason that native ads work so well is because the images are of “real” people, not some airbrushed gorgeous, “perfect” person. Because in reality we are all flawed in some way. We all have weird quirks and we all have things about ourselves that we don’t particularly like, but that’s what makes us unique. It’s also what makes us interesting to other people.
When I read about someone, I want to relate to them on some level. I want to think “yeah I get that and that’s what I’m going through”. If that person can get through that and still be ok, then I can as well.
So “your mess is your message” . You are who you are because of, and in spite of, the things that have been messy in your life. You are the person you are today, because you’ve had to deal with some shit and you’re now still here to tell the tale and we all want to hear it because we can all relate.
So go tell your story, tell it often. Tell it to anyone who’ll listen. Spread the word , spread your message.
