So last week I saw a photo on Linkedin.
It stopped me dead in my tracks as I aimlessly swiped up.
Honestly, I had to double take to make sure the dumb-fuckey I’d just witnessed was real and not a hoax.
Turns out it was genuine and that’s when the blood started pouring from my eyes.
The photo in question?
A man and a woman posing awkwardly on a beach – which is fine.
But then comes the rub…
The bright red Ford Mustang parked next to them on the sand.
Something I suspect was organised, paid for and set up.
All so folks on the beach can get puffed-up pics for their Instagram.
An awkward sham snapshot designed to show ‘money.’
Now, ignoring the embarrassment factor – here’s my real problem with this shit…
It focuses on the wrong thing – the vanity of money.
Consider that, photo’s designed to create the illusion of money for the sake of friends, family, and random internet strangers.
The staging of wealth, when in reality they are faking it before they make it.
Again proving my point that there is little honour among thieves.
Now, my question is this:
Why waste time, energy and effort posing next to a car isn’t yours when you could spend that time ruthlessly prioritising and executing to buy that car for yourself?
Anyway, the point of this email today and your mantra for money this week is two-fold:
One – beware of false prophets and people that stand next to stupid shit.
Two – YOU my friend have the power to do and have whatever the fuck you want, no photo forgery is needed.
So if a red Ford Mustang on the beach is your thing – good for you.
… But for your own honour, virtue and strength make it don’t fake it!
