“THE YOU INSPIRED ME FALLACY; THE VOICE OF AN IMITATOR”
Hello my lovelies:
I Posted this topic of today, on Facebook last Wednesday and thought it would be good to share with my blogging family too.
If someone tells you they have been inspired by you, your mentoring, life modeling, etc… to:
>Raise their fees
>Deliver Services of value
>Change their lives
>Start a new business JUST LIKE YOURS
>Say they are your best friends, followers, admirers.
where they even want to “honor you” by doing, saying, and offer the same things you do with “variations”: by
>using kind of the same logo
>using same words for their messages be it via blog/post/video
>same type of branding
>same words for their “my message to the world” , or for their offer, sales
>reaching out to all your friends/students/clients and list using their “inspired by “my friend/mentor” fallacy strategy, to make “connections”
>And they even say, it must be the MAGIC, a divine coincidence, a twin flame/soulmate sort of vibration, and the “we are so similar crap”, and that this is why now they are delivering the same content as yours, with one or two words variation, or a different color logo,and the same or similar, CALL TO ACTION that you share with others with just a different tone in their voice.
Oh! and it gets better for at the same time they say they are inspired, they are also righteously upset with YOU because:
YOU are not investing the time to praise their “great deeds”, answer their needy unstoppable chats, messages, emails, and desperate calls where they are trying to prove to you they are doing THE GREAT WORK “supposedly INSPIRED by you” Where they need REDEMPTION KNOWING they have your seal of approval, which tells the inner conflict they are battling within (and chose to create by their actions and choices) that they earned the right to share your stuff/words with a variation as theirs, because they are entitled to this, as they are your “friend” or have been “your client” for years, and they have given you “love” and thus you NEED to give them the “exclamative praise” of how amazing they are for doing that which will give them the crown, the title, the praise, the attention and approval they desperately need.
I have some news for you and they are >>FRESH from the “EXTRA, EXTRA!!!! ETHICS , COMMON SENSE, ARE YOU KIDDING ME” MORNING PAPER:
And the NEWS read like this:
>This is not someone being inspired by you,
>this is someone using PARASITE STRATEGIES and copy cat skills, using a shortcut to deliver quick services which have the supposed agenda to serve others, not wanting to invest real time, money, and effort in bettering their craft, magic and UNIQUE skill, as they just want to bathe, ride and bask in the momentum of others rather than creating their own.
Oh and these “friends” may even fill your chats, emails, with stories and stories of: The amount of money they are investing, how many times they are praying, every single thing they are supposedly doing for the good of others, or even tell you how many times they go to the bathroom per day just desiring from you the APPROVAL they need from the INTERNAL conflict they have as deep within they know that either they are copying, stealing, or not doing the work.
“O imitators, you slavish herd!” Horace
Success for them looks like this: a momentum that lasts for a while, a “high” that decreases as the ever teacher of life and time presents to us the venues where the universal laws work wonders, and where when they hit the “low” just like sugar junkies, they will search for the clarity candy somewhere else, they will seek fot another prey, another course, another person to say they will “model after” to give them CLARITY, to blame for their fails, and will have entered the non stop parasitic strategy cycle again.
AH THE BLISS…
Real success cannot be purchased, or be crafted by acting, fake branding, buying likes, adds or photoshopping yourself with a celebrity. Real success is an internal process where all ares of your life are moved in ethical motion, towards harmony, authenticity and truth.
Yes, Truth sets us free, and true inspiration brings the unique artist fuel for its unique creation, rather than the excuse to do and say what others (their friends, mentors) are uniquely creating themselves.
What they don’t know is that they are giving you manifold gifts, some of them:
>That of separating the deed from the doer, and the doer from the deed and choosing with this your friends, lists, clients wiser.
>An opportunity to practice silence.
>And the opportunity to realize that PARASITIC CHOICES as such, no matter the “expert, spiritual, friend wardrobe” they may be wearing, or how many words of ” I AM ALWAYS DOING THIS BECAUSE I WANTING TO HELP YOU, OR PEOPLE Crap” give you the CHOICE of who you want to be at any given moment in time and:
The choice of being a:
>Parasite or Producer?
>Copycat or Creator?
>Preacher or Doer?
>Entitled or Earner of the Moral Right?
>Needy of approval and praise, or responsible 100% of your creation?
>Artist or Imitator?

Choices choices choices…..

Responsibly, Aware & Whole..
