Life is A Game – Are you a Player

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on October 28, 2018 at 10:32 am

If Life is A Game and we are all participating players,
let it be a game of teams and put me with Oprah and Shawn Achor.

Shawn’s POV is quite giving and I’m a positively charged taker.
Please tell me that you know of TED’s friend, Mr. Shawn Achor:

POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY” and “how we look at the human brain”
are topics that I’m interested in – I’ll definitely hop that train.

I’m an avid TED fan. Every presentation comprehended shapes another fun day.
Shawn tends to frequent places that I value. Did you hear him on SUPER SOUL SUNDAY?

If you missed the original OWN TV broadcast back in 2014
I have posted the audio portion because I can’t find the interview scene.

It’s good stuff that you can grasp and build upon.
Have a life watermark? This is something you can focus and heal-on.

The thrill of anything non-real is a fad with an epically short wick.
But see, Shawn, TED, and Oprah seem to cleave to good and… it sticks!

Good takes root in the heart, warms the soul, and radiates through your physical glow.
I’m Qui
And life is a game that must be played, live every day yielding your best show.

You are the captain of your vessel.
Where whilst your ship go?


Your move…

TED was ‘sked

‘Sked. What’s ‘sked and what does it mean?
‘Sked is slang for scared.
Scared means verb. to fill, especially suddenly, with fear or terror; frighten; alarm.

Recently TED was ‘sked to add the following video of Nick Hanauer to their home page post the last TED convention. Why? Because he was honest in explaining capitalism and how yielding welfare to the rich [corporations] does not create jobs, when in fact it is the consumers needs and demands that create jobs.

Nick is no saint looking out for ‘the people’. He’s a capital venturist who banks on the consumer consuming so that he can make money off of them. In so many words Nick said, if the consumer isn’t buying, he isn’t getting their dollar and the economy is at a halt. Which is where many Americans are today. They don’t have jobs to afford anything extra beyond staple food and can’t-do-without medicine.

So Nick offers advice to jump-start the economy and it doesn’t start with tax cuts for the rich. Usually the key note speakers deliverance is immediately posted on TED’s page post the convention. However, Nicks keynote speech was not put up immediately, because his honesty didn’t mesh well with the corporate big wigs that support TED. Here’s what Nick Hanauer said:

Eat it for what it is and digest the honest message,
I’m Qui
and it is in the money that Nick [the capitalist] is vested.

After taping Nicks speech it was clear that: Ted was ‘sked
because they promote corporate tax cuts for the rich to get ahead.

So the rich don’t need a tax break to create jobs.
And those that cry ‘they do’ are corporate welfare slobs.

If I don’t have no money —
You can’t get none honey
