I’m not generally the kind of guy that goes spouting conspiracy theories but I must confess the constant barrage of global negativity, mass mediocrity and paralysing suffocation of murder, government corruption, the financial crisis and increasing taxes is THE no.1 conspiracy of the modern world!
A conspiracy to pollute your mind, break your spirit & leave you with an overwhelming feeling that you’re small, insignificant, weak and helpless. It’s not your fault, the mass media serves to condition people to accept mediocrity by putting garbage into people’s minds… garbage in and garbage out!
Whether the mass media do this as a conscious objective, or unknowingly as a by-product is largely irrelevant. The end result is still the same.
Let’s have a look at some of the things in the world that are keeping you trapped…
#1 The News
I can honestly say that I never watch the news and haven’t now for well over two years. A trustworthy person in my network will tell me the important stuff I need to know or I may pick up on newsworthy items through social media. It seems to be all that anyone ever talks about is the news.
What’s new about the news anyway? Exactly… nothing! Same crap… different day… different people! There was a murder in city x to person y. There was a rape victim on day x to person y in city z. Simply complete the formula as necessary to get a typical ‘news’ story.
Of course, there are an abundance of political stories that make the news since government parties ensure that stories are spun and presented for the best interests of their political agenda. For some reason, countries such as the US and the UK believe that they’re not subjected to political propaganda and have total freedom of speech.
However, whilst waiting around for the missus at the local shop, I picked up a paper left lying around which turned out to be akin to a shopping list of catastrophes and traumas.
I know that the news is ‘normal’ to normal people, however most normal people accomplish fairly little in their lifetime. This is bound to hurt many people who read this but it is the sad and harsh reality and it pains me to say it. I know you’re different though… you’re reading this right now and improving your mindset as a result. What a great investment of your time… to develop these finer distinctions in your thinking to equip you with both motivation, tools and stimulus for positive change.
Those of us who are going somewhere in life have better things to do than to watch the relentless moaning and droning of crimes and disasters that we have almost no power to resolve.
Right now, the world is full of negativity such as murders, crime, starvation, poverty, tax hikes and war. It’s full of gross negativity if you ‘choose’ to see it as full of negativity. You must understand ‘The Importance of Input’ and its effect on your pyschology and outlook of life.
As an entrepreneur, you must stand guard at the door to your mind and not allow the media to poison you. If you’re careless at standing guard diligently at the door of your mind, it’ll kill your ambition, kill your determination, kill your spirit, kill your cashflow, kill your dreams and everything you really live for and love.
Stand guard at the door to your mind.
- Jim Rohn
Listen, let’s be brutally honest here… the mass media is not your friend!
They exist for the purpose of selling you fear, keeping you in a JOB, keeping you paying your 75 per cent in taxes and feeding the government whilst keeping you firmly entrenched in the rat race ‘existence’.
Not only must you protect yourself from the depressive constant onslaught of fear the media hurls at you, you need to combat it with your family and your loved ones united.
Have you ever considered why you keep loading your car up with petrol or diesel? Really considered it? Do you think with modern technology the way it is that there really isn’t a cheaper, cleaner and more viable alternative to using oil based fuel such as petrol and diesel to run our automobiles?
Cars can be run using numerous other fuels including electricity, liquid petroleum gas, biofuels, hydrogen and even things like chip fat.
What’s stopping these cars from being manufactured and bought into mainstream production, so we can benefit from cheaper fuel and a cleaner environment?
The government, oil companies and rich oil sheeks all have a vested interest in making sure that oil based fuel is still the fuel of choice at the pump. Does it make you wonder why these technologies aren’t becoming mainstream? The government are collecting up to 58% of the price per litre in taxation revenues. This is around 58p in fuel duty and 23p in VAT in the UK and the price per litre is at around £1.39 per litre of diesel as at the time this post was republished. The government definitely don’t want to be missing out on this ‘little’ revenue stream, especially since they dug themselves into a nice little hole accumulating record levels of debt after huge borrowing from such massive over-spending.
#3 The Banking System
In the UK, we have entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson who look to consistently break into new markets where the customer is not getting value for money. Branson is renowned for going up against the big boys in industries, offering the consumer value for money but yet he can’t actually break into the banking industry because it’s an “old boys” club which contains Barclays, Lloyds TSB, Natwest, HBOS and HSBC all under the guise of competition. All the banks offer similar deals in interest rates for their products but they’re varied enough that the deals appear that there’s competition in the marketplace. Just enough to keep consumer groups and monopolies commissions off their backs. Banks are even bailed out by the government when the going gets tough and a cynic may even question the motives of the government with such practises.
The banks are quick to offer mortgages for people to buy their own homes and take on ridiculous levels of debt and interest payments on their repayment mortgages just for lending out the money. Whilst the interest rates appear to be low, the amount that is actually repaid over the duration of the mortgage is extremely significant. Take a look at this calculator to see the impact of borrowing for a repayment mortgage.
The word ‘mortgage’ is derived from the French verb ‘mortir’ which means “to die.” A mortgage literally means an engagement until death and people are willingly entering these all the time. Don’t get me wrong, owning a property rather than renting a property is a smart move since you’re building equity and in effect, you’re likely to become an ‘accidental investor’. What isn’t so smart is being forced to pay top dollar for the property since the interest rate is so high. After all, a low APR doesn’t sound like much until you map it out on a mortgage repayment calculator.
Protect yourself and your family from negative programming. You deserve to be consuming the most nutrituous mental foods. You need to smile. You need to greet everyone you meet with encouragement… your customers, suppliers, outsourcers, JV partners, friends and family.
You need to talk about what’s really happening behind the scenes.
Choose your reality by electing for a more empowering alternative. Choose your world… a good world… a world that supports the achivement of your dreams. You need to celebrate those tiny little victories every single day.
And… when you do have a major victory or breakthrough in your life, share it and rejoice with the people who will celebrate it with you.
