You Know This Intuitively, Don’t Be Deceived…
A vibrant and colorful Instagram profile doesn’t mean the person who owns it is happy, or successful, or integrous.
A visually enticing plate of food doesn’t mean there are no roaches in the kitchen.
A sexy physique doesn’t mean the body is healthy inside.
And, a snazzy book or course cover, or video trailer, doesn’t mean the contents of the work are well-written. Nor does it mean that you will get the entertainment value or transformation you were seeking.
In today’s digitally connected world where brands and lives are on display, it’s useful to remember the genius words of Plato: “Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden.”
The beauty of humans is that we all have an internal biologically built-in bullshit barometer. You may call it your inner voice, or gut instinct, your second brain, or soul. Quite frankly, it doesn’t matter what you call it. Trust your intuitive sense; you always know what’s just, good, and authentic.
So don’t forget that you know that.
