NYAO, Ep: 043 – The Cost of Success
It’s no secret that today, in the age of social media, we are constantly being bombarded by influencers in politics, fashion trends, physical attributes, financial endeavors etc.
This social communication inter-web that has become a part of our everyday lives tells us about the world we live in and how to live in it…or does it? Today’s episode focuses on a topic that might rub some the wrong way, but it is absolutely worth a discussion. The Cost of Success.
How many times have you done a comparison of yourself to someone or something on social media? How many times have you based YOUR definition of happiness, success, self image, love, education, or “being healthy” off of a social media post? Is there always someone better than you no matter how much you accomplish and you still feel like a failure?
The question is, what are you willing to sacrifice to become just like that “perfect celebrity” to the faceless crowd of society? Time? Money? An Oath? Family? Lifelong friends? Humility? Empathy? Humbleness?
How much have you given up already? Where has it gotten you?
Join us now as Mike, Raf, and Melon from “the land down under” weigh in and discuss some of today’s hardest truths about the world of social media and it’s effect on us as both veterans and citizens.
