The only thing we consume more than content is air .... but we actually think about the quality of air we breathe.
I threw away my television in 2012. There was nothing of value on tv and anytime I watched the news or a current affair it was always bad news stories or someone complaining about their power bill, their phone bill or the bad service they got at a store. Complaints and a pitty party from the host..... but you know what, NO SOLUTIONS.
They would usually attack the company in question, or chase an employee down the street for a comment. But with all the exposure they get, there was no segments on ‘tips and tricks to reduce your power bill/phone bill’ or how to behave in difficult situations to get to the best solution or outcome for both parties.
We are being fed this constant story of victim hood and if we moan and complain and tell on people we will get attention and pitty and some kind of compensation. It’s embarrassing and I see it everywhere.
Whatever your problems are, heres the really confronting question - what if no one is coming to save you? What are you going to do then? Do you know how powerful an agent for change you can be in your own life?
Empower yourself with step one: turn OFF the tv and start thinking for yourself. If it’s not solution based content or conversation why are you giving it your time?
Real life is FAR MORE EXCITING than what’s on tv. Especially when you take control of your life, one step and one solution at a time.
