Making it through “The Card Game of Life” is a hard task. However, you can do something to make it a little easier, and to make it so that your deck of cards is the one of the best. Wondering what cards I could possibly be referring to and where to get them? Wonder no longer! I will tell you exactly how to get the best foundation possible for your deck!
The most important card is a card I like to call the “Outside Influences” card. This card will help you when everything seems to be going wrong with your game. This card will instantly boost your Self-Esteem Points if used correctly. Self-Esteem Points are very important! They help you to make it through the game, and make the game a lot more fun.
Now, you may be wondering how you get the “Outside Influences” card, and how to use it. Getting the card is easy, but using it correctly isn’t always that simple. All you have to do to get the card is make friends, be around your family, and go do activities! However once you have the card you have to be very careful to use it correctly. To use it correctly you have to make sure that the friends you made, family you’re around, and the activities you go to are both positive and productive.
How do you know that your friends, family, and activities are positive and productive? Just ask yourself if your friends, family and activities encourage you to reach your goals. They should encourage you to reach for the stars! Your friends, family, and activities should also make you feel happy and good about yourself. You should enjoy what you do and who you are around!
The “Outside Influences” card is also how you can get new cards in your deck. To get other cards using “The Outside Influences Card,” you simply figure out what card you want and go out and get it! If you have trouble getting the card your friends and family can help you. For example if you want a “Foreign Language” card, your family might be able to help you study your new language. Also, you if want a “Honors Student” card, your family and friends can help you to get one by helping you study for tests, figuring out the problems on your homework, and help you balance your time so that you still can try to get the coveted “Longest TV Marathon” card, a card earned for binge watching amazing amounts of episodes of a TV show in record time!
In conclusion, the “Outside Influences” card is an important foundation to your deck that will help you in “The Card Game of Life.” It can help you to raise your Self-Esteem Points and earn you more cards for your deck if used correctly.
