With all the hoo-ha about the carbon tax in the news, today I want to talk about stupid conversations we are all guilty of engaging in at some time or another…
And carbon tax is surely one of them right now.
In my opinion, conversations like this are little more than mental masturbation, because they do nothing for you than make you feel good for a short period of time, only to have you plummeting downwards shortly thereafter.
You know the ones…
Talking about other people: and how messed up they are makes us feel better about ourselves. But I heard recently that our subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between what comes out of our mouth and reality – so it actually hears how mixed up we are and can create problems accordingly.
Talking about petrol prices, carbon tax, etc: You can’t do anything about it, so why bother worrying about it – or investing your energy into something which really won’t make much difference to your life anyway. Think about it: if petrol prices rise by 10c and you use 60 litres a week, it’s $6 a week or $300 a year. And if you want to be a successful entrepreneur – it should hardly be worth opening your mouth to comment on.
My advice: find out how these things affect you – but don’t bitch about them.
Because believe it or not –
Complaining and whingeing about what you don’t want, simply attracts more of what you don’t want.
And that sucks.
Take the higher road.
Instead of engaging in these conversations, decide to simply become really, really rich.
