7 Reasons To Cancel Your Cable Today!

7 Reasons To Cancel Your Cable Today!

Do you still have cable? Are you considering canceling your cable to save more money? Canceling your cable is a great way to potentially save over $200 per month!

Here are 7 reasons to cancel your cable today!

1. It’s not 1995 anymore!

Back in 1995, everyone had cable and it was almost required then. There were only a few cable companies and they had limited cable options, but we all blindly purchased their cable plans anyway. However, we don’t have to subscribe to cable companies at all. There are other options.

2. Watching cable TV is a waste of time.

Watching TV can be a huge waste of time. How many times have you sat down to watch “just one” of your favorite TV shows and realized that they are having a marathon. Eight hours later … you’ve accomplished absolutely nothing and just wasted the entire day.

3. Watching cable TV is a waste of money, too!

Spending $200 per month on cable TV is a lot of money that could be better spent on just about anything else. Do you ever wish that you had an extra $200? Well, here you go: cancel your cable and you’ll have that extra $200 per month.

4. There are cheaper alternatives to cable TV.

If you must watch your favorite TV shows and movies, then are still much cheaper ways to watch TV. Cable is probably the most expensive way to watch TV these days.

Apple TV: The Apple TV is a one-time cost of approximately $100, but it allows you to connect to Netflix, Hulu Plus, iTunes and many other applications to watch TV for practically free. You can even rent a movie using iTunes for a low cost of less than $5 for those days you want to watch a movie with the kids at home.

Redbox: This is an awesome, low-cost way to watch movies at home for only $1 per movie per night. Rent the movie at a Redbox kiosk and return it the next day. Very easy and highly recommended!

Roku: There is a one-time cost of between $40 and $110 for a Roku because there are several different models and prices vary across regions. But this is just a one-time cost and it offers hundreds of channels.

Netflix: This is a very popular and inexpensive way to watch TV shows and movies for only $8 per month! Wow, that’s much better than $200 per month! Many people are now canceling their cable and relying just on Netflix.

5. Do you really need 500 cable TV channels anyway?

I am always amazed when friends show me how they have over 500 cable TV channels. Wow, I’m not impressed at all! Seriously! It does not make you cool. It makes you wasteful of your money. How many of these TV channels do you really watch?

6. You don’t need cable.

When you stop and consider it, having cable TV is really just a want and certainly not a need. If you’re truly looking for ways to save money, then canceling your cable is an excellent option to save over $200 per month.

7. You will become much more productive without cable.

Once you finally make that difficult decision to cancel your cable, you will instantly have more time and become much more productive. Yes, instantly! Think about the hours you spend watching TV daily. That time can be spent studying for school, or playing with your kids, or learning a new hobby. Doesn’t that sound exciting?!

Stop reading and cancel your cable company today!

That one phone call could save you over $200 per month, or $2400 per year!

Are you willing to make that call? Why, or why not? Let us know in the comments.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out.

When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

So how to be who you are and always be yourself?

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself? Because you will:

1. Live in Alignment With Your Values and Beliefs

Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking.

When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.

2. Establish Your Own Identity

When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are.

There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.

3. Build Courage

It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy.

It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.

4. Establish Boundaries

When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know.

But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you.

Create and establish your boundaries.

5. Find Focus and Direction

When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations, do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so.

When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
