You Show Them.

I’ve noticed a pattern where people who are disadvantaged in some way seem to achieve success.

Maybe they were born in humble beginnings.

Or that they meet a major obstacle in life.

They are made redundant.

Experience cut backs in their job.

Research has shown that a large percentage of children without fathers achieve success in their lives.

Even those who meet bankruptcy make a successful comeback to live another day.

Or those who meet with a major disaster recover to meet with success.

Creator of ‘Star Wars’ George Lucas suffered a major racing car accident before deciding to create the now famous series.

Tom Jones worked in the coal mines when a serious illness caused him to take up a singing career.

Multi-Emmy winner Ella Fitzgerald lived in an orphanage when changing from a dancer to a singer at an amateur talent show.

Seems to me there’s a strong sense of “I’ll show them” in all of these cases.

In disadvantage, in defeat, in a setback in life, I sense a strong reaction of “I’ll show them”.

Whether conscious or unconscious.

The same with me after my freelance business went bankrupt.

My story is here if you want to read it.

(That’s the book above).

Why not write your own story,

Go on you show them.

Love and peace.

Neil the Smith.

PS. I’ll show them by writing these autobiographical books (visit here).

How You Can Live Forever.

Create something today.

Create a piece that will be here after you have left this Earthly life.

Creativity is the secret of a piece of you lasting beyond your life.

Yet the creative arts are so undervalued in our society.

My deceased wife’s paintings are still to be found on the walls of my daughters’ homes today.

I expect my books about my life adventures to still be around after I’m gone.

Creativity lasts.

What about you?

Have you explored your creative potential yet?

If not, it’s never too late.

Now is the time to decide to leave a piece of yourself, your creative talent, behind.

So what is your unique creative gift to the world?

Think about it.

The Creator of this Universe is a creator.

Our Universe is a creation.

And we are all creators.

You should realise that you were born a creator and make an effort to bring out your unique creation.

Your way to be immortal.

So what is yours?

I’m an author.

My deceased wife was an artist.

And you?

Your creative talent doesn’t have to be your profession.

Your creation can be your hobby.

Maybe it’s your hidden talent.

Or your unknown passion

Write your story.

We all have one.

You are the hero of your own story.

Remember that..

George Lucas, creator of ‘Star Wars’, was a racing car driver until a serious accident in a racing car caused him to turn to the creation of ‘Star Wars’.

Creation can follow a major life change or traumatic event.

Change,

Letting go of the past.

Think about it.

Love and Peace.

Neil.

Could This Be Your Way To The Fairy Tale?

Could this be your way to the Fairy Tale, the sea change, the dream of a life that’s always seemed beyond your reach.

I’ve done it.

Stop where you’re at right now.

If life is not working for you, if you’re not in control, if you’re not happy with your life, then consider a new way of life that works.

Without the money worries, where trust is the new currency.

Without the games where you’re not in control of your own life and your own destiny.

Your struggles have not been your fault.

But I do understand because I’ve been there too.

If ever you’ve been disillusioned about life and how it’s treated you, when your back is to the wall, when all else has failed, here is your way to go.

Like when all your plans and dreams and goals have been taken from you.

It’s time for a new way forward that honors you and your uniqueness.

Why is nobody talking about this?

Why are so many people being left to struggle to survive?

Don’t you have a dream?

Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to your childhood passions?

Have you been waiting what seems to be forever for that windfall, that lottery win that would take you out of all this?

Here’s the shocking truth.

You know the windfall will probably never come, chances are your money worries will never go away, you’re unlikely ever to be free of the day-to-day boredom of your job.

Well, I’ve done it, and I’ve written my amazing story, of living the Fairy Tale, the dream come true, with nothing.

There’s nothing to do except do things different, see things different.

And allow serendipity to emerge.

Does Destiny Play a Part in our Fortunes?

When famous popular and jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) entered an amateur talent show at the Globe Theatre in New York she entered as a dancer, changed her mind, and won the $25 first prize as a singer.

She went on to a singing career lasting 6 decades winning 13 Emmys and earning the title of ‘First Lady of Song’.

At the time she was 18 years of age and living in an orphanage.

She was a favourite singer in my youth.

Did her destiny step in and invite her to change her mind at the last minute?

Was she being drawn to becoming a famous and successful singer and not a dancer?

When George Lucas was recovering from a bad racing car accident he began to conceive his ideas for ‘Star Wars’ after reading Joseph Campbell’s book ‘The Hero With a Thousand Faces’.

I’m sure you know the rest.

Did the disaster he suffered in his racing car career lead him to his fame as the creator of ‘Star Wars’?

In the world today we tend to try to hold on to the past when it’s taken from us.

The same happened to me when my freelance copywriting career of 10 years was taken from me in bankruptcy.

I survived to become an author and to live a happier life.

Is this the working of destiny?

What happens when the unexplainable redirects our lives to go the way we never intended?

I wonder, is that destiny?

Does it have our best interests at heart?

But then, don’t we have free will, to go in whatever direction we choose?

Maybe we have both.

And we can choose.

Which is free will.

I’m not suggesting you should abandon a good idea you’ve already started.

But then, to keep an open mind to opportunities in other directions that present themselves just when you’re feeling dejected about losing something you’ve already started.

“I just trust my beeps,” said the winner of a creativity business award recently.

Maybe we should always trust our beeps.

Here is what the Greek philosopher Plato had to say about our destiny.

Clearly he believed that we chose our destiny ourselves before we are born.

This extract is from his ‘Republic’:

“Now, when all the souls had chosen their lives in the order of the lots, they advanced in their turn to Lachesis, who dispatched with each of them the Destiny he had selected, to guard his life and satisfy his choice . . . and in a moment the souls were carried up to their birth, this way and that, like shooting stars.”

I invite you to read more about how my life changed after everything crashed and burned in my book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

Best wishes and good fortune.

Neil.
