One of the most powerful things I have ever done for myself was to get rid of my television. Four or five years ago while I was going through a big transition in my life, I decided that the television was getting in the way of my life progress. I was horribly unhappy with where my life was going. I was tired of going to a job I hated, only to come home so exhausted that I collapsed on the couch for at least 3 to 4 hours to watch reruns of sitcoms I had seen already while gorging my face with greasy Chinese food and pizza.
I was a sad sight.
Getting rid of the TV was just the catalyst I needed to jolt me out of my zombie mind, and get me thinking about the kind of life I wanted to create. I honestly believe that had I not gotten rid of the TV, I’d still be sitting on the couch waiting for life to happen as opposed to being out in the world creating the life I want to live.
That’s why podcasts have very quickly become my daily personal development tool of choice — dare I say personal obsession. Why? It allows me to listen from anywhere — while doing chores, while exercising, during my commute, etc.
Podcasting is Part of the Self Publishing Revolution
You see, self publishing isn’t just about books. Self publishing applies to all kinds of media. And the great variety of self published media that is available means that you and I have a much greater variety of media to choose from. I choose media that uplifts my spirit, nourishes my brain, and brings me closer to my goals. What does your media do for you?
