20 Daily Strategies Behind How To Become Rich in 2014
14. Avoid Reality TV
Just 6 percent of those who are wealthy tend to spend significant time viewing reality TV, versus 78 percent of the poor. While reality TV is full of so-called success stories, the programming format tends to create a rags-to-riches, “hit the lottery” mentality for both participants and those in the audience. They’re designed to create a sense of community in a modern world in which the idea of community has become increasingly fractured. The target demographic is generally the youth market, and accusations of rigged shows have basically run rampant throughout the entertainment industry. They tend to cater to the lowest common denominator in the TV audience pool, and numerous studies have shown that successful people tend to watch quality shows to put their entertainment down time to better use.
