Refuse to follow the masses, the m may become silent.

Refuse to follow the masses, the m may become silent.

 

People throw opinions haphazardly around online to attract an audience. Some do it for business, some for pleasure and some to incite any kind of response. That has become so evident on social media platforms.

 

Some will expect everyone to agree, often taking out their frustrations on those whose opinions differ. They hide behind the keyboard, name-call, throwing out hateful and vitriolic responses with zero accountability.

 

A perfect example is the news media that convey sensationalized, inaccurate information for the sake of driving traffic. Responsible reporting isn't necessary when an emotional headline draws people in.

 

Avoid falling for the carefully planned, poisonous rhetoric of someone else's agenda. I'd rather stand as one than give in and embrace hate. The masses who blindly follow should know that the m eventually goes silent!

Believe in yourself.  Work hard. Work smart- and learn as much as you can. When it finally comes time to form opinions- do so from an intelligent and informed position - even if your position is contrary to everyone else.

I bought my own apartment in a neighborhood that everyone else warned me not to buy into. I knew that Columbia University was expanding their campus nearby and it would positively impact the neighborhood. I was proven right.

In the summer of 2006, I stated that in the next 2 years we would see a financial meltdown unlike any we have seen in our generation. Many people thought I was crazy, yet again. I was right- or mostly right (my prediction was pretty far in advance- and I was off by 2 months).

Prior to working in real estate, I had a long career on Wall Street, and worked alongside a lot of high IQ people (though common sense or EQ wasn't as common). I advanced in my career- but not as high as I could have if I was just a "yes" man- but that wasn't me.

The moral of the story- be yourself- and even if your opinion isn't popular- elevate your position to an informed one- and be smart- don't succumb to the snark out there.

Pay too much attention to other people's pie too long and yours may be stolen or go bad, keep your eyes on your own pie! I like fresh pie Richie Alan Naggar, how about you?

Thnk you so much for that Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi. Disappointing those who look to me with love and/or respect would break my heart and is so bad for business as well!

Wanda, your post reminds me of the phrase often used growing up: Everyone is doing it.

Well, that turned out to be an exaggeration.

To thine own self be true, is a better thought to go by.

The challenge isn't the fake news but the lack of reason and comprehension of the consumers about what is being reported.

Most Americans IMO are misinformed, many are uninformed and few are informed, so, why has our nation moved to accept the concept of socialism? The cause and effect is our educators, not all but most and our educational system. Ever wonder how the masses follow such rhetoric that is so sanctimonious and total nonsense?
