What Does it take to “Go Viral?”

Have you ever wondered why a video on the internet goes “Viral?” Last year, after putting it off all day, Dr. Sean Stephenson posted his daily “1 Minute With Sean” video. Only, this time he didn’t speak on the video and he had no idea that it would go on to reach millions of people. Sean is convinced that his video went viral for three reasons. Sean says that all “Viral Videos” have at least one of these factors, sometimes all three.

  1. The content makes people laugh.
  2. The content makes people cry (happy or sad cry).
  3. The content makes people think (or rethink) about their life.

How to Overcome Self Sabotage

Is it true that sometimes you can be your own worst enemy? Dr. Sean Stephenson believes so. He found, through his years of experience and study as a therapist that the narratives we tell ourselves can be damaging. When he hit rock bottom with insecurities, his mindset changed. Sean encourages everyone to examine the narratives that run their lives and ask “What do I REALLY believe about myself?” After he hit rock bottom with setbacks in romance and in the workforce it forced Sean to flip the script. He refused to let failure consume him. Make sure to sit down with pen and paper handy to hear more from Sean on this episode of Entrepreneur Unplugged.

When Life Works & When Life Sucks Lists

Dr. Sean Stephenson had been studying insecurity for years. He wondered why insecurity was holding back success in his own life. During his study, he uncovered certain patterns in the lives of people who had overcome insecurity. He compiled these finding in a list he calls the “When Life Works List” and its opposite, the “When Life Sucks List”.

When Life Works (You will find yourself practicing at least four of these a day).

  • Hydrating
  • Exercising
  • Prayer or Meditation
  • Spending time with your significant other
  • Spending time with your children
  • Spending time with your mentors
  • Being in nature
  • Journaling
  • Consuming good information about the mind, body, or spirit
  • Being a mentor yourself, having an apprentice and reaching out to that individual
  • Connecting with your Creator in whatever way that is for you

When Life Sucks (You will find yourself stuck doing these negative habits).

  • Sleeping in too long
  • Not grooming and practicing good hygiene
  • Mindlessly surfing the internet
  • Leaning on vices like alcohol, food, pornography, making fun of others, making fun of yourself
