Million Dollar Quest Idea #3


So, I was thinking of another Idea to attribute to my million dollar quest. I think this one can work, and I have a seperate age for it.

The idea was selling digital photo’s for $1. Now, I’m not an expert photographer, so don’t expect great photo’s. I’m only going to put up a few pictures but I’m thinking if I can get 11,000 people to buy my $1 download, I can successfully reach my first goal I have. I’ll display the photo’s below, and you can buy them by clicking on this link that will direct you to my page: Digital Photo’s $1

Anyways here are a few photo’s:

Death Story #1


In my lifetime, I’ve witnessed more death than I could ever imagine. I have been plagued by it, and I fear for those who have it much worse than me because the feeling is unbearable. In this post I’m going to talk about my first encounter with death, and how I overcame their death with time. Now, It’s not easy speaking about this but it’s life, and everyone goes through these troubling moments.

My first encounter with death was my mother. It happened when I was seven years old, and I can remember the day like it was yesterday. Now, before my mother passed, she was in and out of the hospital for a year or two. I do recall some of the things we did together like dressing up for Halloween or having the mandatory fire and hot cocoa on Christmas Day. But, I can’t say I remember all that much. I was young, and with her in and out of the hospital, it was tough to spend quality time. I can also say I never really acknowledged the severity of her breast cancer, and I never knew that someone could die. But, I found that out the hard way when I came home from school one day, and my entire family was at my house. I thought we were having a party, but soon came to realization it wasn’t when my sisters and I were pulled into a room by my father. I can’t tell you how confused I was that day, but you can only imagine. I asked a dozen questions, until I realized that I’d never see my mother again. I instantly had the worse feeling in my stomach, and combined with tears this was one of the worse days of my life. A few days before she died, she had told me something. I didn’t put it together until after she died but it made sense.  She had told me “I’ll always be in your heart”, and I’ll never forget that. It’s something I will always cherish, and I believe it to be true because I have a strong heart.

Now, overcoming this wasn’t easy. I was depressed for a long time, and it was troubling. But I came to realize that death is a part of life, and we just have to accept reality. As long as we can remember memories, or have pictures, they will never be erased. It’s all about taking in everything they taught you as well, and making sure you carry it out. I certainly have done that to this day and I make sure that I touch every heart I come across, and I try to leave a smile on everyone’s face. I know for sure my mother would just want me to be happy, and live life. That’s what I intend to do, and I would never take that for granted. I would also like to say, cherish every moment you have with a loved one. Never take any moment for granted, and say “I Love you” to them once in awhile. It doesn’t hurt to tell someone that, more than it does to see them in a casket. Sorry to be blunt about that but it’s true. I’ll share more stories of my life, in later posts. Thanks for reading, as always.

Goal #1

Although I set my goals above the norm, I do it because it makes you work twice as hard for something. That is why I intend to keep this blog going for a long time with the hope of achieving my goal. Nothing is easy in this world, and I found that out the hard way like I mentioned in my gambling post. I had reached a peak of money, something that I never thought was possible. But, I regret that peak because I let greed get the better of me. It was similar to that of Golem and the ring from Lord of The Rings. But, I learned my lesson, and I will never let something like that happen to me ever again. Of course I want money, but I’m a different person than most. I wouldn’t use a million dollars to buy a car, or a house, etc… I’d love to start up a business helping out people, and I know i’d be good at it. I am currently in college to be a social worker, so I’m be ready to make a difference. I’d also not only put most of the money away in the bank, but I’d love to treat my family. Perhaps, a vacation to repay them for all the good times they have provided me. It be nice to have that kind of money, and I’m hoping that this blog will one day be a success, and I can inspire others to believe that they can achieve the impossible. 

My First Goal: To earn 11,000 within a four months. That will pay for my tuition, which would be wonderful. I love the college I’m going to but it’s a lot of money, especially in this economic climate. A semester’s worth covered, would probably be life changing. I’m going to have to figure out more idea’s soon on how to achieve this mark, but I already got my eyes set on doing it. 

Million Dollar Quest Idea #2


Well my first idea is already out there, and so far no luck. But, that’s alright because everything takes time, just like getting views on this blog.

My second idea is to make a T-Shirt with the possibility of making more if my first design is even worthwhile to people. Now I’ve already made the design, and it’s a rather simple one. It’s also something humorous, In which I like to do. I actually really enjoy it, but I’m not the one whom buys it. Anyways, you can see the design above, as well as use the RSS links on the sidebar or click the below widget to get to my store. The shirt is $25, a little more than I expected, and I’d only make $5 dollars per shirt. I’d rather sell it for way cheaper, and will be looking at other options in the future.  



Fear


Fear, is it a weak emotion or can it be beneficial? The debate about that is almost non-existent but I often find myself thinking about things like this. I do not think it’s a weak emotion because some things in this world you need to be fearful of. As we know, not everything is good out there, and sometimes being fearful of something provides us a reassurance of safety. I also believe fear can turn into a strength, as we try later on to overcome the obstacle we face. I can personally say, I definitely am fearful of things. It’s not a weakness, it’s just being a human. And these fears I have, only strengthen me later on, as I break their barriers. I remember when I was younger, I was terrified of highs. But, that meant not enjoying amusement parks, and roller coasters. Although the fear is still there, I just put my big boy pants on, and I do every roller coaster at an amusement park. It’s all about enjoying something, and not letting whatever fear you have get in the way.

Also I believe being fearful of things often makes you think about stuff, and gives you something to strive for. What I’m implying is that say I fear being rejected. It’s a totally normal fear to have, and I think you really need to talk things over with yourself about issues like this. As far as rejection, you need to realize that everyone gets rejected at some point in a day. It’s how you take that rejection, and overcome it is what matters. Although this is my perspective on the matter, I truly believe that 20 seconds of insane courage is all you need. As long as you pour your heart into whatever you fear, there’s nothing that can deny you. 

I will say this though, do not live your life in complete fear. Like I said before, it’s not a weak emotion, it’s just being human. But, to completely shun yourself, and not attempt to overcome your fears, is not the right way to live. Of course, this is me speaking, and everyone has their own perspective. But, being a human and going through the daily grind as well, I feel as if my opinion does embark some truths. Well, I did not wish to turn this into a ramble, but I will leave you this last remark. Fear is only a weak emotion if you make it one. 

Anger


First off, Happy New Year to everybody, and I wish everyone the best. May this year be full of life for you! 

Author: Holger Thölking

Now to my blog topic, Anger. I often feel this emotion daily, and not because someone bothers me or anything, but instead the way some lives close to me panned out. Now, there is no one to blame because that’s life, and death comes with the territory. But, I feel angered that good people, people that I love, went too soon. And, just to clarify, I am not angry person at all. This emotion is just simply something that is internal. It doesn’t effect me as much externally, but it certainly hits my core. To be totally truthful, I’ve never enjoyed my birthday either because those I loved either died around my birthday, or actually on it. I always feel like I’m holding myself back from being truly happy too because I know that I shouldn’t be harping on this, but the anger inside, is too much to fight away. It’s like a demon inside of me that won’t let me go, as if I signed some contract in which I have to serve for life. 

I’m not quite sure though, how I can ever put this issue to the side. It’s at the point where it not only is a daily emotion that I go through, but it’s effected other things. My faith for one, has all but been lost as a result. I can also say pain, and tears have become something of rarity. I’ve gotten to the point on occasions where I can say I’ve become numb. I’m actually one of those guys too that don’t mind expressing their emotions. It doesn’t make you feminine to express yourself, like the majority of the world might think. You are a human, and humans express themselves. Gender should never be an issue because I can tell that when you express your emotions, it’s such a relief. You clear the air, and feel much better. It’s also just being real, and not fake. I might be tailing off my blog topic at hand, but I think you got the gist. I’ll figure something out one day to try and put this in the past, but it’s hard not be angry when you see a family photo, and half are not even around anymore.

Million Dollar Quest Idea #1
