I am founder and CEO of my own company, Anja Zeidler GmbH. Being a social media influencer is part of what I all do for living.
Nowadays, I can of course not imagine a world without Social Media, even though I agree that a lot of us spend way too much time on our smartphones… Would I even exist without social media? Of course! My career has started before all that internet hype came up. I started as a model and got poular through TV appearances, radio shows, magazine- and newspaper articles. Today I love social media, especially Instagram and Youtube to market myself.
Overall I think Social Media is great. Within only a few minutes, I can reach hundred thousands of people through an instagram post. My most clicked video on Youtube has more than 3 million views.
However, Social Media, especially Instagram, also has it’s dark sides. You easily loose count of all these perfectly inscinated and surreal pictures, which can affect especially very young followers in a very bad way. People get insecure by seeing all these perfect bodies and start doubting their own bodies, their own personalities, even their own lifes!
- I am not as skinny as she is
- She is curvier than me
- He has bigger msucles than I have
- My breasts are smaller than hers
- Her lips are fuller than mine
- and so on!
I want to bring DEEPER and GREATER content than all that and influence my followers IN A POSITIVE WAY! I want to teach people that life is about more than constantly comparing ourselves to beauty ideals. However, I became known as Switzerland most famous fitness model. It is not easy for me teaching so.
That might be because I do feel amazing in my own skin, I am self confident (most of the time) and a lot of people think: “She can easily say that. I would say the same if I look as good as she does!” Well, believe me when I say, you can indeed be the most beautiful person in the world to others, if you don’t believe yourself that you are enough the way you are, even the prettiest face won’t change the opinion you have about yourself!
It took quite a while until I reached where I am today. I needed to make lots of experiences. The ones who know my story and my career know what I am talking about. Just a few years ago, I would have called the body I have today as too skinny, too small boobs, not crazy enough abs, too much of this, too little of that!
I HAD A WRONG IMPRESSION ABOUT MYSELF, JUST LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE SUFFER FROM!
TODAY I SEE MYSELF AS A WHOLE! MY BODY IS JUST A SMALL PART OF WHO I AM. I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER THAN JUST “THE WAY I LOOK” OR POSE IN A PHOTO.
No matter what number the scale would tell me, if I would even step on it, it would not change the fact that I am happy, feel beautiful, am healthy and just me the way I am! Everybody is responsible for it’s own luck and happiness. We are also responsible for our own view on things and on how we think about stuff. If they affect positive or negative on us is just a point of view. We have the power to decide!
“Did you gain weight?”, “Now you have too many muscles!”, “Damn, you look skinny!” – doesn’t matter in what phase I am, I still get and probably always will get those superficial comments and messages about my body. I will never be perfect to everybody. But why would I even have to be?
My goal is to make my followers able to change their view about their self image, because that is exactly the way to get to feel comfortable in your own skin, changing the view on it! Don’t be so hard on yourself. Stop constantly thinking about the way you look and stop comparing yourself to all these fake instagram models. Do what makes you happy, start loving yourself and take care of your beautiful and unique self! Once you let go of the pressure and start loving yourself for who you are as a whole, you will automatically also love your body! Just start today and have a little patience!
