Your cover vs your content
Which part of your life are you paying more attention to?Everyone likes to look good and there is the look good feel good factor. But the problem is, what if you aren’t looking good? And what if for some reason you can’t make yourself look as good as usual? Then what? Are you then doomed to never feeling as good as you possibly can?
We live in a society that tells us these things are so important and essential to our lives that we just go along with it simply because everyone else is doing it, or has it. The level of sheepism is amazing. We’ve become so engrossed in other peoples lives and what they are doing that most of us don’t truly know ourselves. All this focusing on the cover is just to feed the ego, it’s the ego that tells you that you need xyz, it’s the ego that tells you that your not worthy without so and so, or that once you buy this then you will feel that. Focusing on your cover can make you feel good but how long does that feeling last before you need to update it to bring back that feeling of confidence and worthiness again.. That’s the problem with focusing mainly on the cover, its temporary. Just as you wouldn’t be attracted to a magazine if the cover was always the same, this principle applies to you, don’t get caught up in this vicious cycle.
All these things make up the content of your personal book. As attractive as your cover may be, if there isn’t much content to your book then people will quickly put your book back on the shelf, and this reflects in your relationships. It plays out a little bit in the types of people you attract, but that’s mainly due to your cover. But what sort of people have started your book and are still sticking around depends largely on the contents of your book. If they’re not the types of people you want then you need to have a little read of your own book and add some depth to your content.
As the saying goes, it's what's on the inside that counts
How much in time, effort, money on an overall percentage do you spend working on Your Cover vs Your Content?
