Quote from the article:
"News media have become a competitive blood sport for our attention,” I said. “Their focus is on finding the half-dozen most violent, tragic, scandalous and ugly things that happened in a day and parade them morning and night. Their goal is to trigger our fear, worry, threat and distress responses so we keep tuning in."
“This barrage of negative input devastates our productive potential and creative capacity. What we see and hear is what we think about. Our thoughts become our expectations. Expectation leads to manifestation. It’s a dangerous and damaging downward spiral.”
I haven't had the time to read the book: "The Compound Effect" by Darren Hardy yet, but have put it on my to do list.
Make up your own mind and read the whole article and then let me know in the comments what you think.
