“In the beginning was the WORD”
Saint John 1:1
Freedom Nation United March Magic Word Power
Sweet Sixteen – Day Four
THOUGHTS, as Wallace Wattles so eloquently teaches us
in his seminal work “The Science Of Getting Rich”
TURN INTO MATTER.
IT IS WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THAT YOU BRING ABOUT
So What does this mean to me, you ask?
How are we going to use this knowledge to change other peoples’ lives for the better, you ask?
Welcome to the Freedom Nation ‘March Magic’ WORD-POWER tournament – Sweet 16 – Day FOUR.
Creativity has brushed aside Force and Competitive.
Health has brushed aside Opulence and Relentlessness.
Freedom has brushed aside Planning and Discouragement.
Joy has brushed aside Overwhelmed and Wealth.
So For Today’s Match-Ups We Have:
Creativity vs. Health
Freedom vs. Joy
From each of these pairings, YOU, dear reader, will be asked to select one word that most empowers you.
Each POWER WORD is presented with its definition – as ‘Googled’ from a reputable dictionary.
In addition, to help you make your choice, for each word a video has been selected that is associated with it.
Finally, since this is the ‘sweet sixteen’ and the choice between one word and another is becoming less clear, additional supporting quotes have been added that might resonate with you and help in your selection..
Make your choices of words and enter them into the “Comment” section for this blog, preferably with a reasoning for your choice – though that is optional. These reasonings will be used by the tournament commissioners in the event of a tie-breaker being required.
Note: For purposes of the competition comments for today’s match-ups will be tallied at close of business E.S.T. on March 24. 2014
