Faking Expertise Online & the Miso fork

Picture
this…
You’re
sitting in a fancy restaurant …
And some
weirdo starts eating their soup with a fork.
Messed up
right?
Swear to god
this is a true story.
Christmas
day, my wife and I decided to have breakfast at this trendy joint downtown.
They do traditional Arabic food and it’s incredible.
This place is
so popular, on weekends the queue runs down the street for blocks.
Lucky it was a quiet morning.
We find a
seat outside and sit to order.
Before I tell
the rest of the story, I have to explain the important role of bread in
Middle Eastern food…
…it’s actually used as an eating utensil!
It works
like this:
You break
off a small piece, hold it between three fingers in a triangle shape, then “pinch”
the food into the bread to create a neat little morsel.
That’s the
proper way to eat Arabic food.
And just
like Asian meals are best eaten with chopsticks and European meals are best
eaten with fork and knife, Arabic food is best eaten with Lebanese bread.
Now I’m not
one to make fun of how someone eats–I think everyone should be allowed to eat
however makes them most comfortable.
But I couldn’t
help laugh when my wife pointed out the well-dressed Egyptian couple sitting
next to us who were eating their “manakkesh” with fork and knife. Which would
not have been THAT weird, except they soon began eating their “foul” the same
way.
Foul is originally
“poor people food”.
You eat it
with your hands, using bread. And it’s “soup-y”.
What the couple did was like an
Asian guy trying to eat miso soup with a fork and knife.
They obviously thought they were being sophisticated and classy. Except it
wasn’t working, they couldn’t eat, and the whole thing looked super dumb.
And I’d not
have laughed if they were non-Arabs…except they were speaking the Egyptian dialect
and Foul is Egypt’s national dish!
This got me
thinking about some of the marketers subscribed to my emails.
Constantly
trying to be something they’re not.
You know what
I’m talking about?
The
personal development “guru” wannabe who needs mental help.
The “wealth
coach” who is practically homeless.
The “diet expert”
who’s a total fatso.
The internet
is full of people like that, trying to make it in online business, hoping and
dreaming that they’re going to get rich selling their pointless ebook of
rehashed junk.
And I’m not
picking on these guys, honestly.
But I feel
sorry for them, because they’re always doing really inconvenient, unnatural
stuff, bending over backwards to keep up the appearance of success…
And the effort is all waste. No one believes it.
I think you should be true to yourself.
It’s stressful to fake ALL THE TIME.
It’s hard
enough to MAKE people like you, trust you, and spend money with you.
It’s even
harder when you’re faking.
But why
should you need to MAKE people like you anyway?
There’s
enough diversity in the world that you can always find your own group who like
you exactly how you are, with all your faults, all your flaws.
Wouldn’t it
be nice to just find and attract just those kind of people, who are inclined to
like you, trust you, and prepared to spend money with you?
It’s easy.
