How famous are you?


How famous are you?
When do you know that YOU made it? I mean are you so famous that the one and only Jennifer Aniston follows you on Instagram?

My heart lept with joy yesterday as I opened up my new followers and saw this one. I quickly closed it and opened up again to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

I wasn’t, it was still there. Oh my gosh Jennifer knows who I am and is following me, can you believe it, me?

Has this ever happened to you? When someone with an obvious identity problem is “claiming to be someone else” and stealing their identity?

I spoke about purpose and design in yesterdays post and how we have all been created to be ourselves not someone else. Then I get this absolutely fake follower.

Why do people do things like this? What are some reasons they feel they need to be someone else?

Do they do it to fit in?
To conform to some societal norm?

Do they do it to impress others? They may feel that their true self is not impressive enough, so they create a false persona to gain approval.

Do they do it to escape reality? Some may want to escape their current reality and create a new identity that is more desirable. They create a fantasy persona to live out their dreams.

I think they do this for one thing and one thing only: they are attempting to scam anyone they can out of money.

The sad thing is, there are people who will actually fall for this.

Beware who friends you and follows you and do your best to protect your true identity.

As a business person, you should try to monitor your online presence to ensure there aren’t any “fake Jennifer’s” using your name and likeness.

Now, if the real Jennifer Aniston wants to follow me, I wouldn’t object, after all I am famous.

Go make a difference in someone’s life today!
