Do you know who your great great great grandma is?
I certainly don’t.
But guess what?
YOUR great great great grandchildren will CERTAINLY know who you are...
Actually, they’ll probably know more about you than you’d want them to.
Your great great great grandchildren will be able to see that you shared a cat meme on Facebook on January 13th, 2020.
So believe it or not...
In some ways, you are already immortal.
Depending on how much time you’re spending on social media, you are already creating an immortal digital version of yourself that will last forever.
But the real question is this:
Are you creating an immortal version of yourself that you’d be proud for your great great great grandchildren to see?
Social media can be incredibly powerful...
... IF you’re on the right side of it.
If you’re a CONSUMER of social media, I can already tell you that you are not creating an immortal version of yourself that you’d be proud of.
Your great great great grandchildren will see you as just like the billions of others who share content that OTHERS created.
So what can you do to change that?
You need to shift from becoming a content CONSUMER to a content CREATOR.
There is a good side of social media.
It’s the side where YOU are creating content and teaching others what you’ve learned.
This gives you the ability to make an impact.
To make a difference.
To change people’s lives.
In other words, as one of the world’s most respected marketers, Joe Polish, would say:
You need to learn how to “Can and Clone Yourself”
If you dedicated your life to learning. To helping others...
And then you created world class content out there that stood the test of time....
Hypothetically, you could still change someone’s life 300 years from now.
But if all you’re doing is being a CONSUMER, that will not happen.
Make the shift.
Because then, and only then, can you become truly immortal.
