Could you be brainwashed by the media?
Maybe.. in the same way that a crazy person doesn’t know that they’re crazy, a brainwashed person doesn’t know that they’re brainwashed.
This might seem like a kinda random topic to discuss for a Figure it out Friday video, but it’s actually one of the most important because if you are allowing yourself to be brainwashed, none of the rest of it matters. All of the goal setting and self-improvement and being a great young mom.. none of that will be as effective if your mind isn’t in the right place.
So here are some questions to ask yourself and if you answer “yes” to any of them, then you might be moderately to severely brainwashed by the media and I suggest you watch this video..
1. Do you ever find yourself idolizing or admiring celebrities who are famous but they actually don’t have any real accomplishments?
2. Do you judge the attractiveness of the opposite sex based on the popular standard of attractiveness, meaning that girls: you only find tall, dark and muscle-y attractive and men: you only seem to like women who have Barbie doll-shaped bodies.
3. Do you ever find yourself trying hard to be that standard of beauty?
There are a lot more questions I could ask but I think those are the 3 most common indicators.
I’ll explain more about how you become brainwashed by the media and what you can do about it in the video..
(Be sure to watch to the end because you’ll see a side of me you’ve NEVER seen before… Don’t judge me..)
As usual, after you watch, I’d looovvee to hear back from you, so let’s continue the conversation in the comments..
