“Failure is not an option”
One thing you will realize during your spiritual journey is that everything that had occurred to you happened for a reason. Even during your
darkest moments, you are having a spiritual growth. It may not appear that way at first, but that is because you will come to notice when you healed
your past and figured out the good in them. That is when the magic starts as a stream of epiphanies and realization flows through you like a stream of
water. Everything you went through had prepared you for your ultimate destination, whether you were aware of it or not.
Making a full stop from running away
There comes a time during a man or woman’s life that we finally find that one voice after a moment of despair. We make a full stop; look back,
and ponder at what were we running away from in the first place. You dissect your past and study each moment to find a piece of the overall puzzle.
This piece of the puzzle is the good aspect that came from that experience. When you look at them closely, you will see the lessons learned, along
with any skill you have acquired during.
Hobbies, special interests, writing, reading, and even video gaming; all have a hidden lesson behind them. What you once thought was a waste of
time, (especially due to those who implanted you with this belief) actually had a lesson that you could apply in everyday life. Anything you did
during these moments of darkness is actually an extremely useful piece of the puzzle you will form as you look more into the past and heal it.
The Game of experience
The more you heal the past, the more you will be able to take out the experiences gained and apply it to your life. When you least realize it, you
will have put together a huge jigsaw puzzle of what you truly have achieved which is behind the dark cloud of the hidden emotions and so on.
Ever played a video game? Those who play role-playing games know that in order to advance further in the game you need to level up your characters.
You level them up by gaining experience points, the more experience you gain, the more you level up your characters, and the more you level up your
characters, the more powerful they become, and the more powerful they become, the easier the game gets. This is only, but one lesson we can get from
this topic, listen carefully, and you will see more.
I used to spend hours upon hours, leveling up my characters just to make the game easier. What did I learn from this? It taught me many great
If you never thought you had patience, yet you played a video game for hours and hours, you may want to look back at this moment and reconsider your
thoughts. If you know you have patience for something, then you have patience for anything. It is that simple, your ego may disagree with this, but
your true self knows, that you may be using “I don’t have patience” as an excuse to validate laziness in your life.
The truth is hard to grasp, especially when it comes to admitting that we do not do what we want, mostly because we are lazy, and that laziness has
become a burden, embedded deep inside our subconscious, which blocks any inside view on our true strengths. However, the ultimate truth is that you
do have what it takes; you do have the tools in your possession. You just need to discover it.
Perseverance and determination
We could all learn a lot from gamers, while it is a shame most of them do not see this for themselves, a few do manage to break through the veil and
discover hidden skills they subconsciously possessed while playing video games. One of them is perseverance and determination.
When you buy that game you have been wanting the past few months, you only have one goal in mind, and that is to conquer the realm of that specific
game. This is where you display Perseverance and determination. They also do this through the power of focused thought. (Which is an essential skill
needed to manifest along with the laws of attraction).
Why is it easy for gamers to discover this?
Because most gamers play games with passion and passion comes from the heart.
In a video game like world of warcraft, you would be surprised on how many people actually gain leadership skills by leading groups through
dungeons. The task of having ten to twenty five people working together in synchronicity is not an easy task, but an admirable one, once it is
Many take this for granted, but once mastered; they display discipline and courage and become surer of themselves the more they accomplish their
goals. They learn to be strategic, communicate well, and as a bonus; they learn to be aware of not only the actions of the people around them, but
also of the events occurring in their environment. This helps them focus on the now.
In an online game like warcraft, there is also an economy that involves the auction house. Here players gather, to sell items they do not need. It
is here where people can learn about trading, as they study carefully what items are hot with every new expansion, and buy/gather stocks of a specific
item and resell for a higher price. Ironically it is also here where you learn, that inflation occurs the more money exists, as prices tends to go
insanely high for a specific stock or item.
I could name more lessons you learn in a game, but doing so would probably lead me into writing a book about it, which I will pass on. Nevertheless,
I hope you get the idea that I am trying to convey here.
Why I used a video game as an analogy
Now, I am not saying to start playing video games. While it is true that you gain many experiences through it, the bottom line is, the analogy I
showed here, is but an example of many lessons you learn through your own personal interests. Lessons can be discovered with just about anything you
do in your life.
For instance, every past you heal is another jigsaw puzzle gained for the grand picture and your grand purpose. Through here, you will find your
hidden strengths to what you once called your “weakness”, only the mind will have gained a new perspective on how it views this thanks to the
experience gained throughout your life. This is the key to finding out where and how to begin viewing your world in a different perspective. In
addition, it is here, where you will unlock your hidden potential as your mind begins to expand. The more you learn about yourself, the more
confident you become.
