Even when you’re losing, you can be winning

This has been coming on for several months. A week or two ago I wanted to make a note of it: The Truth.

The Truth is vibrating subatomic particles. This – this is the real, end-result-after-you-have-stripped-away-all-the-rest, as-real-as-real-can-be truth.

What we think and what we do within this “Uber” Reality become our reality, our lives.

A happy person is a productive person – and not necessarily the other way around.

Your reality is, to a large extent, what you DECIDE it is.

“That’s true,” someone will remark absent-mindedly.

The cherry on the cake is a story line that says all my adventures (or lack thereof) since 2006 have been the best thing that could have happened to me as a writer.

“That’s what learning is … not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we’ve changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before … losing, in a curious way, is winning.” ~ Richard Bach, writer of Jonathan Livingston Seagull

I sometimes get tired of “this”, and wish that “this” can to come to an end.

What is “this”? Trying to make money, and suffering the consequences.

There is a version of my life where I spend most, or more than half of my productive hours on writing projects: Personal Agenda, the rest of the 2004 material, the 2005 material and everything after, new material, poetry, BrandSmit.NET, the English site, the marketing of my projects.

But first I would have to get past “this”. One of these days …

“Money is not a scarce resource for which you must struggle on a daily basis. Money is an abundant resource that is constantly in circulation.” (Repeat every day until you believe it.)
