Have you listened to the news lately?
I was just talking with a friend. He was all worked up and a nervous wreck. “The sky is falling, the world is coming to an end. The stocks are falling and Covid isn’t yet coming to an end!”
This is a result of listening to the news.
Did you know that the ratio of negative news versus positive news broadcasted is an astounding 13:1 ?!
That is 13 NEGATIVE news to each 1 positive news!
Of course if we listen to or watch the news we are overloaded with negative news! That is why my friend was so nervous!
At The Mint Capital we have a voluntary program called “No News Is Good News”, where 12 loan officers avoid listening to the news for 30 consecutive days. They are now repeating another round of 30 days!
It’s a real game changer. The world becomes a more normal place to live in. Life becomes simpler. Even Covid seems to be on the mend.
Try it and let me know how it goes!
Can you imagine life without radio or TV?
