You are what you read, watch, listen, and study.
What are you filling your brain with?
The world is full of negativity; and apparently America digs it.
Don’t watch the news. When was the last time you watched the news and felt good about yourself, others, and/or the world in general? Rarely if ever!
Instead of watching the news, read books of things that interest you. Listen to and watch podcasts that teach you how to act upon your passions and dream. Study how you can reach your goals.
Do I watch tv? Very minimally. And when I do it is either a tv show that is on Netflix such as Breaking Bad, or ESPN. I stopped watching the news a little more than half a year ago.
Media is a business. They are going to show and put on the news things that will attract eyeballs, and in America, people are infatuated with the negative, they get caught up in it. FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC are a few that drive me nuts.
The politically world being what it is today, is causing me to be completely unplugged. When in airports and these shows are on I always listen to what others around me say. Their reactions intrigue me and this is exactly what is wrong with America today: People do not listen to what the person speaking has to say; they instead see the little (R) or (D) after their name and immediately judge – “Oh, those damn Republicans” or “Man, I hate those Democrats.”
If you get caught up in that, you will never accomplish what you are destined. The world has been the same for thousands of years. And it will be the same for thousands to come. How you ask? This world is always filled with opportunity mixed with difficulty.
Take advantage of every opportunity by continuing your education yourself. Read, write, study what you love. Turn your passion into something that helps the greater good, and in return you will live a good life.
Just turn off the news!
