    Great goal. Some audio books work out but if it's philosophy or anything thematically powerful, I need a hard copy. It takes more time but I need the paper to make it work.

    Fight the good fight, mate. You'll come out ahead for sure.

    The trick to remembering what you read and applying it to your inner child is to write it and/or speak it not just read it.
    Then practicing will become either second nature or a self fulfilling prophecy you are compelled by.

    i remembering watching that movie with a chick
    either i really liked the girl because i remember liking the movie
    which would be weird for the me of that age who disliked all new age type stuff
    but then i can remember almost nothing from that movie other than it being about auras i think
    im mexican so i call the shadows cast by the big birds flying above me as auras
    which i think is the same as the asura/ahura of the indo europeans
    if a buzzard was flying above your pack maybe its a good idea to circle back and check in on your weakest links
    make sure nobody looks like hes dying out there
    animals read our body language
    and assume the worst
    that is why you whistle while you work
    to scare the demons away
    and attract the pretty colored birds
    who like the timbre of your warble

    invest in cardstock printed with ink
    ink and paper products with proprietary art and literature
    companies related to cardstock are winning in the market share and at the stock market
    I grew up flipping David Robinson rookie cards for 20-40 bucks a pop to my 4th grade teacher.
    of course he was selling them for 200 a piece and probably holding a lot of them
    i had a bunch of little schemes to get specific cards
    I was getting them for cheap by trading away a number of cards of more established superstars to collectors.
    some people needed certain cards because they were OCD about complete sets.
    others just wanted as many cards of their favorite player.
    some people had no idea nor did they care that there was some weird underground market where these cards held value.
    maybe if the card was signed or was an ancient card from like the Babe Ruth days.
    folks didnt know that everyday cards were printed with extremely inflated values as compared to older cards.
    or they had some idea but they didnt really understand the market and were confused as to why some players that were not great players or who made a lot of money had cards that were worth tons in the short term even if in the long term they might settle back down to a lesser price
    It is part of the inflationary scheme built into the card business now paying off exponentially
    because when the new cards become very expensive it makes the older rarer cards that are trad benchmarks for value either obsolete in that role or they have to be re-priced to adjust with the newer higher basic values of new cards.
    but every market is different and within the niche it changes every few years

    same way how stocks work and now these card games are driving stocks values as well because its a game and gamers love the action more than the money even though they know that the money is the action in this game they playing
    if you follow the money you know where the action is
    if you follow the action you know where the money is going to be next

    Read As a Man Thinketh by James Allen. Better listen on Audible at 1.5x the audio.
    That said, for some reason this read had me crying at several parts.
    Think I need to schedule this in for a listen every Sunday and read it once a month.

    I am going to win.
