People started to watch the TV news way back in the 50’s—the 1950’s. They thought they needed to know. They wanted to help solve problems. People started to watch the TV news way back in the 50’s—the 1950’s. They thought they needed to know. They wanted to help solve problems.
Now, watching TV news is a compulsion. You think you must know.
You think it’s important. You think you have to know all the gory details. It’s like watching a pro football game for most of us. We have no clue what those 22 guys are doing running around out there, not really.
It’s the same with watching the news.
We’re watching all these men and women running around and we have no clue what they’re doing. Guess what? Neither do they. The results speak for themselves. Yet we keep watching.
We think we need to know so we can do something about it.
Meanwhile, it’s driving us crazy. It’s getting people so stressed out and scared most have gone into a hole to hide like a rabbit. That’s what the news has done for people. All that news has not helped them one slight iota.
They’re frozen in fright
Here’s some news for you. Watching that tube, reading that newspaper with all that negative information coming at you does not help you in the least bit. Don’t believe me. Check it for yourself. Are you better off? Do you have more money, more happiness, more peace of mind, has your stress level gone down with all that news watching? Of course not.
Has watching all that negative news helped solve this “problem” the news has cooked-up? Of course not. You cannot control what’s going on out there. Paying attention to what’s going on out there only keeps you in stress and fear.
What you can do is control what is going on inside of you.
Pay attention to what is going on inside of YOU. Watch all of the chaos and confusion. Notice. All of that nonsense in your head is not YOU. It’s your mind feeding you a bunch of baloney telling you to be fearful and stressed-out. It’s telling you paying attention to the news helps your future.
All that racket is not YOU.
It is your mind which eats negativity for dinner. So stop it. Stop watching the news. Stop reading the newspaper. Stop talking about troubles and problems with friends and neighbors. Stop feeding your mind food. It will run out of energy. It won’t terrorize you anymore. Stop paying attention to noise saying you can’t have money, happiness, and peace of mind.
