Meanwhile – The Impact of Comic Books on Society

Comic books and graphic novels have long captured the imaginations of children, teens and adults everywhere. Many people have read comics when they were kids, occasionally hiding a comic book inside of a school book in order to read it while their teacher lectured. The frequency of which we would enjoy these tales usually decreased the more we grew into adulthood however, they still have a tremendous appeal. Comic books have usually been thought of as nothing more than mere “children’s books” however, they have come a long way over the years.

Comics and graphic novels address a range of societal issues and allow us to showcase what is happening in the world today. Some comic books act only as plot devices, some as social commentary, and others try to make us think.

Their has been a rise in interest in comics in recent years primarily due to the entertainment industry and the internet. The internet has given people new options for buying, selling and trading comic books with the online marketplace and websites such as eBay and Amazon.com. Online comic book forums and message boards have also given comic book readers and collectors an instrument through which to connect and share their passion for this creative medium and have piqued interest in those new to comic culture.

Comics are now recognized as a valued medium and we can see their influence in just about every sector of our entertainment. From movies to television and from video games to amusement parks, comics have had a tremendous impact on our culture. As a result comics are no longer being censored in the sense of what should and shouldn’t be in them. This may be a bad thing for some but for others it is a basic part of free speech and the first amendment.…

Law of Attraction Mastery: Using Your Nightmares to Manifest Your Dreams

The point of this law of attraction article is very simple: how to use things you hate to help you get what you want. Briefly, we need to contextualize this so that we’re on the same page, but we’ll end with a suggestion about how to use things you don’t want in order to help bring you the things that you do want. And this is probably the single most helpful tool a person studying law of attraction can have: an instant, powerful reframe about horrible things.

In the law of attraction, knowing what you do and don’t want is extremely important. They’re the basis of getting what you want. And it’s easy to see that if you think about it for a minute: if you don’t know what you want, then you can never know if you got it or not because you’ve never been looking for anything-you’ve just been looking. This aimless looking is often insanely painful, and even when it’s not painful it’s rarely helpful.

Very often, I used to find myself getting mad that I “didn’t get what I wanted”… until I really thought about it and realized that I didn’t just want that thing: I’d also thought about every possible way it could go wrong and what could suck about it. I had thought and thought and thought about how it would fail. So much so that if I actually succeeded in my goals, I wasn’t sure what to do. This happened to me when I was a door-to-door salesperson: I’d get rejected so much that when people wanted to buy, it’d surprise me, and the first thing I’d want to say is, “Really? Seriously? Why?”

And I’d think this because I was never focused on the sale. I was always focused on negative things, like how I was messing up or thinking about if they were still paying attention or what I’d tell my bosses about how they just couldn’t be sold.

I hope you get the picture: I focused on the worst. And so, my days were constantly filled with my nightmares because I was not only attracting them to me in the world, I was bombarding my mind and emotions with terrible feelings about things that hadn’t happened yet-and might not happen!

So, how did I use this?

I focused on all the things that I didn’t want and turned them to positives. For instance, a thought I’ve often had is, “I don’t want people to ignore me.” This is an incredibly negative belief because it’s centered on people ignoring me as well as my want to make people not ignore me. I want to be heard! Rather, a better thought, a thought that’s a desire I can have is “I want to captivate people with my words.” And this is a very powerful desire-a desire that permeates all of my communication including this article.

The belief “I hate stupid people” (something I loathe hearing) could be transformed to “I want to …
