We have an expression in our personal development community about CNN. We call it Constant Negative News. The vast majority of the world believes they have to be informed in order to have conversations with people about the topic of the day. In taking a close look at this I see this just developing one negative thought after another. First we get the negative information from the news broadcast then we carry that on in our head and with other people the rest of the day.
When I first got involved in personal development I fought not watching the news for awhile since I was kind of a news junkie. But it soon became clear to me and one of the comments I read really assisted me. Think of your mind as a bank account and for every negative thought you have take out a dollar and for every positive thought deposit a dollar. Now at the end of the day, what does your bank account look like? If I choose to continue to watch the news how many dollars would I have to remove from my bank account?Personal development is our business and our life.
