We all get influenced by these motivational people. It happens. If they were influential then they wouldn't have as many followers. The problem is when you buy into their motivation SO much that you start to try and act like them. Maybe you have been binging Tony Robbins content lately so you start to mimic him in hopes it will bring you some success, but your personality sweet spot is more like John Lee Dumas so you are acting outside of your sweet spot.
I remember watching Gary Vee years ago when he was all about Hustling. Don't get me wrong, he still is, but he seems to have a lot more focus on EQ and self awareness in his message now. I remember watching his videos and thinking that I needed to be working harder and putting out content on every platform all of the time and feeling like a failure when I couldn't do that. Now I realize that I don't want to be a Gary Vee. That non-stop work lifestyle doesn't sound fun to me. I still want to help people and be successful but on my own terms.
