I was doing a video call with a client recently
And by the end of the call…THINGS WERE HAPPENING!
He’s been a client of mine for years
Early in the conversation, I saw that he had the news playing on his computer in the background
I said: “What’s the news of the day??”
He said: “Oh, just so and so yelling at so and so. And vice versa.”
Then he said something important…
He said: “You know, I was thinking the other day……
I have the news rolling in the background as I work every day.
I like to know what’s going on…
But I think it might be dragging down my mood.
It’s always so negative and I think, even if it’s subconscious…
It brings me down.”
I think I replied with something like: “YA THINK???”
Or something eloquent like that.
That led us into more conversation, with the upshot being this truth:What you fill your head, ears, and your heart will DEFINITELY impact your day.
What if instead of scrolling, scrolling, scrolling through Facebook in the evening
We read a book.
What if that 20 minutes of news watching was spent watching something motivational or encouraging.
What you see in the photos:
1. The other photo is right after he turned off the news – “No more!” is what he was saying with those hand motions.
2. “Hey Kyle, take a screenshot of this – it’s a monumental moment!”He deleted Facebook off his phone to limit the distraction of it.
Albert once said…“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Try something new today that will fill you up and encourage/help you vs. bring you down.
And be reminded that what you fill your day with and what you listen to/consume has a major impact.
P.S. This topic/thought also reminds me of this Scripture: Matthew 6:19-34
