Have you ever noticed how music affects you? I listen to a pretty wide range of music, mostly older melodic heavy metal, but I also love classical music, good piano music, and I enjoy a good symphonic piece. However, I do not listen to rap music or country music. Rap music is degrading, not only to women, but to humans in general. You can’t be positive when garbage is being pumped into your mind. I don’t listen to country because most of it is either just plain silly or, more often than not, it’s about cheating or drinking. Again, it’s hard to be positive when you’re wallowing in misery.
This post isn’t about music, per se, I just wanted to get your attention on things you listen to on a daily basis, and music is common ground between almost everyone. Television programming isn’t much better than rap or country music.
I’ve talked a lot lately about staying motivated and being positive. It helps when the sounds you hear being pumped into your subconscious are either uplifting or at least decent.
Another thing you can pump into your brain is knowledge and motivational speakers.
Many of us spend a lot of time reading material to expand our minds, learn new things, build our self esteem, learn new business skills–the list is endless. But there are times when it’d be much more convenient to have these things playing in the background while we work.
I found a site that offers tons of audio files you can download and listen to at your convenience. Some of the downloads are free, some are not. But this site has almost everything under the sun–motivation, fiction, religion, technology–like I said, the list is endless.
If you find yourself with little time for the material you’d like to read and can easily work with noise in the background, this site is for you. It’s called Learn Out Loud. I think you’ll love it.
You can improve your blogging, writing, life skills, self-esteem, learn foreign languages, whatever areas you want to expand on or empower while listening to material that lifts you up instead of bringing you down. You have choices; you can turn the TV off, ignore the Rap music and give yourself and your family a brighter future. This is also part of getting plugged in.
After you check it out, grab a freebie or two, come back and let us know what you think.
