What about changing our newspapers…

As usual this morning, I started my day by reading the newspapers….and gosh it has been a real struggle to find a positive fact listed somewhere, but I did, like the news that cuts to disadvantaged school may be reversed, that tourism figures are giving a positive prognostic for the coming year or the story of the astronomer Jocelyn Bell-Burnell who discovered pulsar stars. Ok, times are not as good as they were, but even when they were really good, I remember newspapers still listing on their front page the worst of the worst. Do they believe that readers are only into bad news?  Are we really more inclined to buy bad news? Some studies say so…. Maybe that’s time to change this! I don’t know you but I want to know what’s happening good and bad, and I want to be able to focus on the good, to focus on what we want for the place we are living in… Yeah I want to know the good news first. I agree with the ‘law of attraction – you get what you focus on’, and this is also something that we use daily in NLP, ‘focus on what you want and say it with positive statements,’ David Hamilton, in his book ‘It’s the thought that counts’ gives many research link confirming that what we focus on influences what is happening around us. So what are our newspapers up to? when will they decide to share their front page between positive and others news, that we don’t need to struggle to find good vibes. Building up fears around us is not helping to give us the incentive to move from ‘can’t’ to ‘can’. There is actually a lot of good things happenings that we are not informed of, some are small, some are bigger, but all combined together they are huge! I think it’s time I boycott my newspaper…
