Today’s “Triple P” post or positive post for the posse is about SHINY PEOPLE.
I’ve been fooled by people before. I’m sure you have too. It’s not because I’m naive, far from it. My faith protects me and provides. Here are a few characteristics to look for in spotting what I call “shiny people”.
THE CONCEALED INTENTIONER. These folks give you half truths, and entertain you with stories of events that never happen. They have motive, but cloak it in nonsense, foolishness, and constant help or support that n e v e r quite gets to you. You can spot these chameleons by how they change their stories from one “get rich” scheme to another.
THE SMOKE SCREENER. These are folks who attempt to cover your eyes with so much smoke you can’t see them picking YOUR pocket. You can spot these insidious “fire starters” by the way they flaunt their moral piety and need to be the center of attention. Because none of us are perfect, why pretend to be? It’s gotta be an exhausting life performance.
THE FAKE SURFACER. I don’t care who you are, or who you think you are, we all have the metaphorical “bad hair” day. Beware of those who ONLY show you pictures with every strain of hair in place. The roots could be compromised. Authenticity in the age of Reality TV and selfies is at a premium. Those who are authentic will attain great heights in what I call the current “age of illusions”.
Remember, be RELENTLESS in pursuit of your dreams!
