Everyday I make an extremely important choice when it comes to filtering all the info and news that I absorb, and I most definitely suggest that everyone do the exact same thing. After all, the more mainstream media has their job to do, and that job is to get all of us to absorb the news that they create for us. I believe that the majority would definitely side with me in my thinking that the mainstream media wants to sell us all on the sad stories and the impending doom. They don’t particularly want us to hear all about the great things that occur in our world’s and our country’s economy.
That’s not to say there isn’t bad stuff that’s going on out there. There certainly is. And they can definitely affect your business, but if you make the decision not to absorb all of that negative news you’re going to have an easier time absorbing the good news. As a result, your mindset will be affected in an excellent way.
As an example, don’t listen to the news from the cable guys and the networks. Seen the Headlines from the prominent papers? Small wonder that they’re also going out of business. Keep an eye on what you read and what you allow yourself to listen to. Absorb the good news that’s out there. Like, for example, all of the success stories you can find in syndicated news that is focused on entrepreneurs. Places like Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, Inc. Entrepreneur, and Fortune Small Business, for example, are great places to get your news.
We all have options in how we set our filters when it comes to what sorts of information and news we take in each day. We can set our filters to get rid of all the junk and only let in the good stuff. We can choose to hang out with successful, cheery, and positive entrepreneurs who are continuing to be successful and growing all the time despite the current bad in the economy. If you position yourself properly you too, can grow in our current environment. There is just so many amazing success stories and great opportunities today to start and grow businesses. All it takes is proper focus and a positive outlook.
Make the decision to be positive and you’ll see some amazing things happen.
