You are what you Tweet

January 27, 2010

So my buddy Joel updated his Facebook status tonight: “If writing down goals can greatly enhances your chances of achieving them, then what does writing or posting your complaints do?” Some of the immediate responses were quite interesting because they were rebuttals…someone pointed out that complaints can be “just venting” and actually took a swipe at his underlying personal beliefs. He is a big believer in the power of focusing on the good and positive in life as a way to attract more good and positive circumstances. And I have to say it works for him.

A related Facebook update of his at the end of last year was something along the lines of “If you want to self-analyze, read your last 20 Facebook updates.” That one got some negative responses as well (especially from the same folks from above who apparently hadn’t had nice things to say recently). So what I took from these two events is the same people who have nothing good to post online get upset when challenged to wonder what it says about or does to their psyche…

Aren’t some of these reactions just case-in-point? 20 negative events later, someone is still “blowing off steam” but on someone else’s Facebook page! I think “You are are what you Tweet” is the mental/spiritual version of the expression “You are what you eat!”
