Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing.

What exactly is the price we pay for experience? 

Pending upon what experiences we are discussing, the price paid for those could be ranging from inconsequential to the most severe of penalties. 

If you are working to live a full life, complete with a wide array of opportunities, you will most certainly find moments in your life in which you are being exposed to circumstances which will ultimately deliver you tremendous potential rewards, and for which you may ultimately have to sacrifice variables in your world, that you might not have been willing to pay. 

With each and every chapter of our lives, we are absorbing multitudes of experiences.

When we consider the price that we pay for experience, we might presume that we would be considerably more guarded about those experiences, and specifically about what benefits we are hoping to achieve for having gone through them. 

Our experiences are continuously packed with unforeseen variables from which we are honing our respective skills, perspectives, and reactions in order to be considerably more prepared for the next set of variables that come our way. 

It is true that very few experiences come without a price tag, so wouldn’t it be wise for us to understand that, and as a direct result, treasure those experiences for the valuable possessions, they truly are. 

Happy Saturday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
