Believe That It Is Possible To Achieve Greatness And You Will

What is it that you truly desire in life? Is it better health? Do you want to find the love of your life? Are you seeking to wake up and to be living your dream? Whatever it is, it can happen for you. How do I know this to be true? Because we live in a Universe filled with abundance.

Everything that you want someone else has attained it making it to where it is not an illusion. People from every walk of life has reached their dreams. You can too if you align yourself to win. I recently wrote an article on how the answers to getting rich is in plain sight but most don’t want to open their eyes.

Being great starts with understanding that you are your own person with unique personal experiences. No two people’s road to success is the same, but they both can reach the same desirable destination through self examination. By looking at your current situation financially, then looking at the habits you have, you can get a clearer idea of why you feel stuck.

So many people read article after article hoping that things will “just click” and life will miraculously change. But this is a false faith. You are reading someone else’s life story about their product being picked up by a major brand, them making a stock investment that tripled, or how they turned their stimulus into a million dollar business. But you aren’t doing anything of these things. And you knew from the headline you weren’t going to relate to the story but you kept reading thinking, “Maybe I could be the next one.”

People often read success stories without acknowledging their personal success. Once you recognize your already existing worth you will stop looking for others to give you the one answer that you believe is going to fix everything.

Look within and you will manifest everything that you need and want.

Sincerely,

K. Crystal Carter

Facebooks Collapsing Rebirth: Countdown To The Metaverse

​About two weeks ago I posted on a private social media page how Facebook was toxic for individuals with anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions. In comparison, I urged those seeking professional and serious business connections in the cannabis and crypto industries to use LinkedIn. The social media platform has a high number of business owners and content creators who publish valuable and worthwhile posts. People conduct themselves more seriously on LinkedIn is what I have noticed, and it’s been this way consistently for years. 

It wasn’t until this past summer when a tragic event occurred in my life that I transitioned to using LinkedIn again. I actually turned off the notifications of invite requests only at the start of this year. I would let them pile up in my inbox knowing one day I’d sign on again. But as Facebook showed me memories that I didn’t want to view instead of searching their settings to see if there was an option to turn it off, I decided it was time for our virtual relationship to end.

About a year ago I had a pair of earrings that I designed to go viral on Facebook and it was the largest amount of orders that I had ever received. As an artist and designer, it felt great to receive recognition for my work. My inbox started to get flooded with women asking for my website. As I responded as quickly as I could, Facebook started to block any messages that I sent with a link. They notified me of 48 hours when I could send a link in my messages again. I know, I know spam prevention control. But I was not initiating these messages, I was only replying.

After this magnificent event occurred in my art life, I was encouraged (motivated) to share more. Despite the message situation. I mean, that is what the platform encourages to make the algorithm work for you, right? Share! Share Share! The more I shared, the fewer views it said I had. I tried scheduling posts, posting organically, and I even tried ads. Facebook would offer $10-$50 credit for creating an ad but I would never see the credits after I paid.

I posted in “professional” art and business groups but over the last year “follow for follow train” posts would take over, some groups would not allow you to share your business link (which made no sense to me), some groups let scammers comment on everyone’s post, and in others, the admins would demand you follow them on Instagram before approving your post. The biggest hustle I witnessed was attractive women group admins charging $10-$50 for you to post in their group.

At this point, I was only using Facebook to promote my art, and the free and paid methods weren’t working on my behalf. 

Facebook made saying goodbye easy.

Over the years I, like many others, questioned the violent viral videos, the completely off recommendations for suggested friends, how you could select not to see content but it was still appearing, the spike in irrelevant ads, and the disappearance of posts from those on your friendslist.

Facebook outgrew itself.

Too many new (ideas) services, options, and constant updates. Not enough focus on bettering society with such a powerful and accessible platform. The scariest thing about the recent outage was the thought of the millions of people refreshing their app for hours who didn’t even have a business but just wanted to have access to their feed. Pointless feed checking. An unhealthy social media addictive habit that started because of Facebook.

On October 28th Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will continue the conversation of the company rebrand, new name, and his focus on building the metaverse at the annual Connect conference.

There will be fake outrage by the Facebook social media world that has in my opinion dumbed down the smartest of individuals. ​Mark has stated that he wants to focus on the younger generation. I don’t know if this is his way of trying to give back to the global social media community after the damage Facebook has done but as the once viral saying goes: Hide Your Kids.
