The Game of Life by Florence Scovel Shinn

Experts, CEO’s, successful entrepreneurs will all tell you that to achieve true wealth, you must start from the inside and build outward. Thousands of people over countless generations have realized the secret to creating true wealth. Of course true wealth is much more than money. Love. Health. Happiness. Relationships. These are but a few of the things that happen automatically when you easily but powerfully transform yourself to begin attracting that which you desire.

The Game of Life by Florence Scovel Shinn, will tell you exactly how to do that. This book was first published in 1925, but it is as relevant today as it will ever be. I’m sure that you’ve heard that in order to achieve abundance, you must be open to receive. What this mean is that by changing your inner orientation on how you view yourself and the universe, you tap into the natural wealth that is there waiting for you.

The universe is not random. One of the most famous quotes from Einstein is “God does not play dice with the universe.” The smartest scientist of our time is telling us that the universe does not operate like a Las Vegas slot machine. You don’t pull the lever, cross your fingers and hope, although I’m sure you know many people who unsuccessfully (and sadly) apply that strategy to life, career and even love and relationships. It doesn’t have to be that way. Not for you. Because you are reading this, there is something inside you that wants more. That knows there is a better way.

The universe operates on a set of laws as solid and dependable as the law of gravity. All you need do is learn and easily apply those laws to your life, and reap the rewards. And make no mistake. The rewards will come, and they will be earned. They are not a gift from the gods of prosperity or a loan from the goddess of serendipity. As surely as you throw a baseball up in the air and expect it to come down, when you act in accordance to the laws of universal abundance, the wealth cannot help but to flow.

My laptop sits on a standard sized desk, up against a wall. Just behind my laptop, on either side, sits a row of books that I deem most important so that I can reach and grab them and refer to them often. This book is one of them. At less than 100 pages, this book packs a wallop of fantastic information.

The chapters are as follows:

The Game

You start off by realizing that life is not a battle, but a game to be played, and won.

The Law of Karma, and the Law of Forgiveness

Personally, my favorite quote regarding forgiveness comes from Nelson Mandela: “Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies.”  This will help you tap this incredible power.
