Your Reality TV Show (A Rerun)

October 15, 2020

The last post (click here to read) reminded me of an old series I posted starting in 2013 called “Your Reality TV Show”. So I’m reposting some of the series now. Here are Episodes 1 and 2.

Episode 1

With all the popularity of Reality TV shows, imagine for a moment that your life was a reality show.  What and how would you truly want people to see you?  Does that match what they are seeing?  

Let’s go a step further, imagine that you suddenly got amnesia and you are watching the reality show of your life, what would you think of the person (which is you) that you see?  Would you want to watch your show again?  Would you make changes?  What would they be?

Episode 2

If you don’t like what you see on your Reality TV show, ask yourself the following: do you want people to see what you think they want to see, or do you have the courage and conviction of letting them see the true you?

Don’t confuse what you truly want people to see, the real you, with what you think they want to see.  Seeking popularity and fame via your reality show means giving others the power to dictate who you are, or should be.  When you give up that power, you will always be chasing popularity and never find true happiness.  Have the courage to show and be your true self.  You’ll be surprised at how many more tune in.

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” – Dale Carnegie

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of me.” – Dwight L. Moody
