TV Shows and Movies that Promote Prosperity #2

Prosperity: What You Watch Matters!

Spoiler Alert: My Name is Earl, Season 1, Episode 1:Pilot

If your going to watch TV or movies, try to pick ones that will promote prosperity. In season 1, episode 1: Pilot of My Name is Earl we are first introduced to Earl. For those of you who are not familiar with the show Earl is introduced as a guy who has made bad decisions his whole life. Then one day he won $100,000 in the lottery and quickly got hit by a car, lost the winning ticket, and his wife divorces him. While in the hospital recovering he sees a talk show host on television talking about Karma. Do bad things and bad things will happen to you, do good things and good things will happen to you. It is here that he decides to turn his life around, so he creates a list of everything bad he has done and decides to try and make up for those past decisions.

What I love about this TV show is the theme that no matter at what point in life you are in, you can change your life for the better. His first good deed he does is to pick up all the litter in the parking lot of the hotel he is staying at to make up for all the times in the past he has littered. He is then instantly rewarded by having the winning lottery ticket show back up! I love how he is rewarded so quickly for the things he does. Although, in real life I find that the reward or consequence can take a longer to show up.

Now that Earl knows he is on the right path he goes to the next item on the list, which is to make up for being a bully to a kid in school. However, when he goes to make things right he finds out something disturbing about the man. He instantly takes him off the list and again Karma punishes him by having his ex-wife break into his apartment. He then puts the guy back on the list and goes back to make things right.

Here are some great lines from this episode:

“My life sucks and I ain’t done anything good I can think of.” – Earl

“My whole life I’ve been scared to be who I really am because of what people might think…[then] the one man I was scared of my whole life has accepted me as I am.” – Kenny

I absolutely love that quote! How many of you have been afraid to be who you really are? I know I have. I still work on being myself everyday, no matter what other people say. My mantra lately for my writing has been “Done is better than perfect.” I remind myself of this constantly, otherwise I fear I would never finish or publish anything.

Let me know what you think down below. I’m debating whether I want to do like an episode recap or maybe focus on a couple powerful quotes from each episode, so feedback on what you would like to see more of would be appreciated.
