The Activation Game – Review and Give Away

I was asked if I would like to take part in The Activation Game and after watching the introductory video I knew it would be something I’d enjoy. This post is my review and a competition. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I am being completely honest while trying not to give too much away.

So what is The Activation Game? Well, you can take a look at The Activation Game website for an insight. I have to tell you, I was sold by the trailer, I didn’t need to look at any more, I really didn’t want any spoilers.

I will say that it’s probably not for everybody, but if you are looking for a way to improve the way you think about life then I’m sure you will enjoy it.

The Activation Game is a 12 and a half week personal development course on rediscovering human values. It starts with a book which then leads you on a journey about yourself. It is not a self-help course, more of a new approach to human values and what makes us tick.

I am currently about to start my fourth week and so far I’ve really enjoyed it. I feel like my eyes have been opened to how I think and feel about myself and how I react to those around me.

Each week starts with a puzzle, then you move through  six sections;

Hello – is basically a quick hello to the week.
Inspiration – Is an introduction to the theme of the week, usually in two parts.
Reflections – asks you to ask yourself some questions on the theme.
Meditation – is quite simply a  guided meditation.
Events – presents you with tasks to perform, these are not difficult.
Goodbye – is a little re-cap.

I’m not sure if the formation stays the same throughout the entire 12 and a half weeks, As I said, I’m not one for spoilers and I honestly haven’t checked, but I do promise to come back at the end of the 12 and a half weeks and let you know how I got on and how I feel about the whole course.

Now The Activation Game is more than just a book, it is an audio visual journey with many parts. You will need a pc, laptop or tablet and internet connection to take part. I’ve found that sometimes headphones are useful too, but not a necessity.

You have a puzzle to solve each week and I found the first one quite difficult but then I re-read the instructions and realised that I only had to remember that all clues related to the authors home country of Africa. This made the puzzles easier to solve and I was soon on my way.

You will need time to work through this course but you don’t have to do each week all in one go, or even all in one week. You can work at your own pace and do as much or as little as you please. You are required to watch some videos but they are not too long, most of them are very short and all of them are inspiring. I’ve managed to do most of the tasks but not all of them. I don’t think it really matters, what matters is that I’ve given them all some thought and decided what I would do if I could have done them. (I am at a disadvantage here, being unable to get out alone) Most of the tasks are very simple, but they are also very rewarding and they can be performed while getting on with your usual daily life. The whole 12 and a half weeks are intertwined with getting on with your daily life.

The authors have a vision of changing the world one person at a time. Is it possible? I’d like to think so. You must have heard of ‘pay it forward?’ It’s all about creating ripples, often tiny ones, but one person can change another’s life and in turn that person can change someone else’s. Human values are something we all have but do we stop and think about them enough?

I’m really looking forward to working through the rest of this experience and would love to meet others who are interested in trying it too.

    I think this sounds quite intriguing. It's good to look at life through a different lens at times. I think it would be quite fun to see how this game works.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
