Propaganda comes in many forms! Propaganda can be the show you watched where all the rich people have a heart of gold. It could be the show about a leader which only shows one part of their life but leave out all the bad or progressive stuff. I believe many of us have been victims of propaganda. When we mistreat each other because we have been told to think of each other or if you see your friend of a different race as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. If you see yourself as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. Propaganda is defined as especially bias or misleading information used to promote a cause or point of view. Propaganda can be “your not the solution to your life, We ARE!”. Propaganda is very detrimental to us as human beings and wishes for us to not think critically of it.
In my book Powerfuls I go in depth about thinking critically. Even in school I have had to look outside the class and the text. Question everything given to you it could be a poison hidden in a good meal.
From Star wars to Batman, all stories are based in fact. Be it a traumatizing experience on a personal level or a horrible experience we have had together. All creativity comes tradgedy. We never want to hear a boring story. We need a conflict in our fiction. Be it us versus the big bad army, Being attack by aliens, going against the odds, or losing a loved one. We have all been there. Events like these make the best stories. When was the last time you read a story about a very happy individual with a happy day? Those go well in baby stories until the baby loses its mom. These are the best things to build from. Everyone loves the movie series Star Wars by Georg Lucas. The crazy truth is…They are all based on World War II. He saw the dogfight films from the war and wanted to recreate them. When you see the creativity of the special effects team making these films, It’s Impressive. Lucas’s fact-based turn to fiction has become one of the most successful franchises in the world. This should inspire you to write about your tragedies and put a spin on them. Tragedies in my life, influenced me to write the book The Lazy Man’s Hustle. I was at a very low point in my life for a year. Noone was hiring and no money was coming to me. I would lay in bed all day. I was very depressed. I felt I wasn’t worth anything. Then I started having Ideas. I went to several different events around the U.S. all on my savings. This really helped me see the entrepenuerial side of the business world. I saw how much of my time was wasted building for another persons wealth. This is when I started a landscaping business, a podcast, and started writing comics. I would sell these and make a good amount of money back. This inspired me to write The Lazy Man’s Hustle. I saw too many people sad with their lives because they were jobless or didn’t have the drive to leave a horrible job. They chose to be victims. This is how the fact of being jobless, helped my creativity. WHAT CAN YOU CREATE FROM TRAGEDY?
