Pete’s Note: Everywhere you look its doom and gloom, war and famine; no wonder everybody is so damn serious these days. Anyway, I thought I’d lighten things up a bit, and post this little article which was sent to me recently. Let me know if you get a chuckle.
By David Attaboy – London, England
BIO: David Attaboy is a 48-year-old unemployed lorry-driver who until recently lived with his mother Irene in the tiny hamlet of Moon-me-on-Pond just outside of London. Thanks to facebook, this former recluse is now a celebrity in the “Abundance/Wealth Attraction” field and regularly speaks on this topic on stages throughout the world. David’s motto is, “You keep giving me money, and I’ll keep living abundantly.”
Ah facebook… what would I do without it?
In days of old (pre-facebook) when I wrote something cool, like a letter to the editor, I’d have to wait ages for folks to notice it and then call me… or worse, write me a letter.
It took days to get any feedback; and if you’re as shallow as me, waiting for this reinforcement to my ego was a very neurotic, worrying time.
With facebook, I can get an instant thumbs up and sometimes, I’ll even get a few comments. And I don’t even have to say anything great.
For example, here’s a recent post that galvanised my “friends” and had them commenting and hitting the “like” button like there was no tomorrow…
“The Universe is congruent to our inner-most selfish desires… to obtain true abundance, one must embrace the self.”
Now don’t ask me what that means okay. I just made it up.
But I found the vaguer I am with my comments, the more responses I get.
Plus, I don’t want to be specific because frankly, I really don’t know much about anything.
I mean, I left school at 15, haven’t read a book since, and my last job was back in 1994 when I used to drive lorries.
And besides, if I’m vague, folks will just read into it what they want and then think I’m some kind of genius (I’m building up a real following).
So I love this world we live in.
A world where anyone can be heard.
A world where anyone from a 12-year-old truant in Nebraska to old Ethel, the 87-year-old lady from Pyrmont Retirement Village, can all be heroes and experts and all have their say.
It makes my heart sing I tell you.
But upon my first exploration into the weird and wonderful world of facebook, I quickly realised there are certain conventions to uphold.
I felt like one of those natives in that movie “The God’s Must Be Crazy”… everything seemed so foreign. But I soon learnt my way around.
I discovered if someone likes you you’ve got to like them back. If someone comments on my wall, off I’ll go to their wall to have a read and leave a comment.
And I’ve realised I must be careful.
If I comment on Susie’s wall more than Jeff’s, well Jeff is going to start feelin’ a little insecure, maybe start thinking I don’t even like him anymore.
So I’ve got to be careful.
But after a year or so of stumbling around the minefield I’ve got it all sorted.
These days, I’m a celebrated speaker and it’s all thanks to facebook.
I don’t even live with my mum anymore and I’ve finally got a girlfriend, she just loves my celebrity stature.
Anyway, gotta go.
I’m speaking at a Wealth Attraction gig this afternoon… sharing my wisdom and insights on how to attract wealth.
See you on facebook!
