Hello my fellow readers. Are you all doing well? Today as I was working on a passion of mine, Magic: The Gathering, I came across an article from the head designer for magic. This article was truly inspiring. It had talked about getting that dream job, and in this case he had used himself as an example since he was working what he considered to be his dream job. Of course, it didn’t start out to be the original dream job he had in mind, but in the end it all worked out for him. If you guys are interested in reading about it please click on the picture above. I hope you guys enjoy it.
Education doesn’t stop when you stop going to school. It’s an on going process toward true enlightenment. Life can be hectic, but this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to strive to learn new things or improve our knowledge of past things. However, this choice is yours to make. Ignorance or enlightenment, which will you choose?
When we’re young our minds aren’t clouded with the various uncertainties of life. We see things from a different perspective. However, as we get older we tend to lose this perspective to the idea of reality. The one thing I do think we tend to forget though is that the reality we live in is the one we conceive mentally from the start. So if you’re have a bad day go to a mirror, and remember that you’re awesome.
When I saw this picutre the other day it made me ponder deeply about my personal life. Then I asked myself this: “What have I done?”. Most of us grow up without much thought about our futures. Most of us definitely don’t really work toward a career field. When I asked myself what I have done the answer was painfully simple; nothing.
Growing up I had always despised working. I didn’t want to live my life working so hard just to live a good life. However, until my recent years I had failed to realize that labor is the key fundamental to all things received in life. You can’t have something without having given first. Just like how that young girl spent 4 long years to learn to get to where she is now. Luckily we live in a world where chances are almost always available if we decide to apply ourselves.
Work isn’t fun. It can be, but for most of us it’s just a means of survival. It doesn’t have to be that way though. So remember, it’s not to late to start now, and just as the farmer labors to make fruit you too can labor to make your own fruit.
Hello everyone. Are you all doing well? I hope so. Last Saturday I had an amazing experience. And it has to do with giving.
Originally I was only going to go play a simple prerelease for a game called Magic: The Gathering. I had came a bit early so I figured I would go kill some time at the nearby Wal-Mart. As I was walking toward the store I saw a rather filthy man ask someone for money. This man came up to me asking me for $8 dollars. He had a rather pungent smell of him similar to that of a druggy. For whatever reason I ended up giving this filthy man the $8. Upon reaching the doorway I saw a few people trying to raise awareness for breast cancer. Now, you may not know this, but there was an interview done by some news group about these kinds of organizations and though their intent is good the money is typically not used very much for the intended purpose. However, yet again I felt compelled to give them a few dollars. And it was after that moment that things started happening.
The first thing that happened was I came upon a really cool Magic: The Gathering shirt. At that moment I knew I wanted it. So I got it. I then proceeded to the card shop to play the event. My card pool was at or maybe a little more than break even for the amount I had paid for it. Then to top things off I was given a bye for the first round giving me an instant win. From that point during that break I came upon some cards from another game I had been interested in for some time, but never had the opportunity to really try out. I had asked the clerk how much a single deck was, but another individual, he may have been a manager or owner of the shop, told me he’d sell me the everything they had of that product for a mere $20. Now the typical price of these things being sold at a shop for like that would be about $10 to $17 per deck. The other thing that was added to this was the booster packs. These packs average about $3.50 to $4.5 a pack. I had gotten 5 decks and 26 boosters. That is on average a $141 worth of product for just $20. Then during the raffle in the middle of the tournament I received a $7 limited Magic: The Gathering deck box. And lastly I made it into the top 8 with a 3 booster prize pool for my 8th place finish.
The thing I wanted to show through this personal experience was that through my unconditional giving I had received more than I gave. This is something I know I need to work on more, but I do believe the universe was working to give back to me for what I gave without thought of return. So if you really want something in life remember give unconditionally and you shall receive more than you give in due time.
Hello everyone. How are you all doing? I do hope you are all doing well. Today I wanted to share with you all something that I read. And the topic I had read was about abundance.
Have you ever felt that there was something lacking in your life? I know I’ve felt scarcity in my life. I’m sure that most of you have felt scarcity in your life as well, but why do we feel this scarcity?
I don’t know if any of you have ever heard or read this magazine, but the magazine is called “Law of Attraction”. They also have a website with the url of: lawofattractionmag.com. It’s a pretty good magazine and something I would suggest to anyone to check out.
While reading the latest issue I could find I came upon this article about abundance. The article was a short story about a man who was feeling very stressed about life and the things he lacked as a provider. This man had prayed for help and eventually came upon an answer. That answer was to give away money. At first the man was confused, but he took it to heart and started giving away money. Slowly, but surely, his life started to turn around and he was receiving much more than he was giving away.
This sounds good and all, but most of would probably say or think that we can’t give away money like that. We make excuses thinking we can’t afford to do things, but what is really happening is that we are setting ourselves up with the mental attitude of scarcity. And with this scarce mindset we attract to us scarcity into our lives. This is not to say there won’t be tough times, but by focusing our energies on the negative we can only see the negative and miss out on the potential opportunities that lie right in front of us. This man that had changed his life is a good example of this. His mind was focused on negativity and scarcity, but by changing his thoughts not only was he able to find more opportunities, but also be able to give back to society.
So if you want to get out of a poor life, then think of a rich one. However, in order to receive you first must be willing to give. This is the path of wealth. Until next time take care and try to live life abundantly.
