The Prosperity Game (LoA)

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
Here is the link to the beginning of the Prosperity Game for those who would love to join us! I started yesterday so I'm technically on day 2 today. Yesterday I had $100 to spend and treated myself to a massage and pedicure. I rounded the prices to about what it costs here ... I didn't want to get tied up in the techincalities. It was actually harder than I thought to simply spend $100 on myself. My first thought was, "Oh, I don't need anything ... I wonder what I could get my boys." And, it's not that buying something cool for my kids isn't a good idea, but I also know I need to start believing that I am fully worthy of all things good as well. It is so much easier for me to give than to receive. So, I thought most of the day on what I'd give myself. Then I remembered how much I want to schedule an hour with the massage therapist at my chiropractor's office, but instead of a full body massage or localized work on my back, I just want a nice "fluff" massage of my hands, feet, and neck/head. I want to relax! I also would love a nice pedicure where I get to soak my feet in hot bubbly water. So, that is what I did. And it was so nice to be the one being taken care of instead of the one taking care of others.

Now I want to start working on my list of 100 things to do, be, and/or have. That is tough! But I know, again, I am worthy of all things good and I am allowed to have dreams. So ... that is my goal for today.

Hello!
I'm on Day 5 and so far I've treated myself to a new bottle of perfume (which is a passion of mine), a trip to NYC, a trip to visit my DH's family overseas, and some new furniture for my ds's room as well as a Valentine's Day gift for my MIL (perfume, naturally!). I could use a massage and pedicure--I'll have to remember that for the next day's check.

I did the exercise of writing down 100 things that I'd like to do, be, or have a few weeks ago--however I think I'm only up to #75. I'll have to copy my list onto the website.

This is fun!

I would love to peek at your list. How did you assign "value" to your items on the 100 things?

Haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but I want to subscribe to this thread.

I'm on Day One and I just treated myself to some new clothes. I really need some nice, business-y type clothes, and I had the perfect outfit in mind before I even got my check!

I'm going to work on my list of 100 things later on today, when I hit that mid afternoon slump in productivity

I've just started entering my 100 things on the prosperity game site--here are my top 10 just to give you an sample:

1. Live in Paris
2. Have a perfume studio
3. Adopt 5 kids
4. Work as a professional librarian
5. Be a stay-at-home mom
6. A new Honda Civic automatic hybrid
7. A conflict-free diamond ring
8. Go on a cruise through Alaska
9. Travel through Europe by train
10. Visit continents that I have not been to

Obviously not all of the items above have a corresponding value. I tried typing in "The Universe will provide!" in the value field but apparently only a dollar amount will show up. Also, obviously some of the items on my list are in conflict with one another--like saying that I want to WOH as a librarian and be a SAHM. However, I'm confident that I'll find a way to be a great mom to 5 adopted kids, a librarian, a perfumer, and a Parisienne

Question ~ Do you do this all online, or do you need a notebook or some other way to keep track of it physically? I browsed the site, but couldn't figure that out.

Yesterday was Day 1, and I got a massage and a sushi lunch of all of my favourites. I could just see myself having these things, and it felt SO good! Then I added a Spa day to my 100 things list because Wow = what would several hours of self-care feel like? Amazing, that's what!

Subscribing. I might start up, today. I generally have NO problem spending money, so I wonder how I will do!

I went ahead and spent my money on a day at the spa! IRL I have a sinus infection : and so I went and used the sauna, had a facial and a massage.

Now I feel awesome!

I now have 5 things on my list!

(I thought we couldn't play until we had 100 things listed. )

Hannahi - Thank you for sharing your list. You have helped me "see" so to speak what it looks like. I think I am going to focus today on what I want and when/if I have quiet time (something I am putting on my list ), I am going to work on it.

Oh Goddess, if that was the case, I don't know if I'd ever get to play!

I have like a dozen now.

When you sign up to play the game there's a button that you click on to add things to your list.

You know I was just wondering how this would affect our Treasure Mapping?

Tracy says not to make your map until Aries New Moon, so I hope that this won't interfere.

Probably not, since this is not the actual *map* itself right? :

Thanks. I have too many papers and notebooks to keep track of right now, that I didn't want to start it if I had to add to my clutter. But if I can do it online, I'm in!

I wouldn't think it would interfere. I don't know all the specifics of the Prosperity Game, since I haven't signed up yet, but we're all still doing all types of LoA things anyway.

I don't think it would be a good idea to say, "No positive thinking until the Aries New Moon."
