Millionaire Mindset series 12: Get Into Active Mode

We have a lot of busy bodies in our generation. From the look of things people are busy but the real question is busy with what? A research carried out showed that people spend an average of six hours every day on TV and social media. It sounds ridiculous and yet it is true. Your worst enemy could be your phone, TV and other gadgets in between that rob you of the most precious asset you have- your time!

The media are conditioning you for lack of consciousness. They show poverty, struggle, drama, disease, crime, drugs, fighting, arguments, problems, catastrophes, murders, negativity. Remember what you focus on grows.. No thought lives in your head rent-free. Each thought you entertain will either be an investment or a cost. It will either move you toward happiness and success or away from it. It will either empower you or disempower you. That’s why it is imperative you choose what you feed your mind on wisely.

The media are conditioning you to spend all you earn, and getting more into debt, to “keep up with the joneses”, buying things you don’t need to impress people you don’t care about! The media are conditioning you to never be satisfied with who you are or what you’ve got!

The media are also disconnecting you from your true source of power, and any sense of inner peace or spirituality. There is enough bad news out there in that you don’t have to go too far to find it. Simply switch on the news and you will have your moods dampened in a very short time. The truth is that the news is depressing and TV reality shows are far from your actual reality. It is meant to keep you glued while the actual real people are busy strategizing on how to get your money flowing in their direction.

To become a self-made millionaire requires focus and a lot of work. Self-made millionaires would never dream of throwing their precious time away on watching hours and hours of television. If you are watching 4 hours of TV per day, that’s 1,460 hours a year, i.e. 61 days a year (2 whole months) wasted on watching television. Can you imagine what you could create in that time?

Think about all the important tasks you have been postponing saying you don’t have time. Is it really an issue of time or prioritizing? Whatever we consider to be important, we make time for it. You can have the time for the things that you choose to make time for. The point I am making is that get rid of your TV if you must and reduce social media time so as to focus on building your business and your wealth instead.

 Most people understand we are creatures of habit, but what they don’t realize is that there are actually two kinds of habits: doing habits and not-doing habits. Everything you are not doing right now, you are in the habit of not doing. The only way to change these not-doing habits into doing habits is to do them. If you are truly serious about success, prove it, and get down to action.
