Civic Mirror Reflection

Civic Mirror Experience
Connections To Reality
Problems like this happen all the time in the real world. The
Poverty Cycle
explains how a poor education may lead to dropping out and will affect your chances of getting a stable job, which will affect the family you raise (culture also affects this), and at what age you raise them, which affects where you live and what you pay there.
In real life, The percent of Aboriginal teens who did not graduate from high school is 60%, more than half!
A poor education goes hand in hand with poor living and a poor lifestyle.
Aboriginal children living in poverty are 1 in every 4.
This number is ridiculous, look around the room at four of your friends. One of those people would be living on the streets because their family doesn't have a stable income, and cannot afford to pay for the house, and they might be fighting for money just for food.

What should you get out of this?

While participating in the Civic Mirror simulation there have been many issues that we have tried to settle.
The Issue...
The problem that I, personally, faced was finding work and managing my personal finances. In the simulation it wasn't incredibly difficult to find money to get me through the year, however the money that you start with slowly decreases with everything you buy in order to live.
You need a stable income
to support yourself and your family over the years. This year I had a couple possible ways to get a regular income, unfortunately, none of them worked. I had a house I was going to rent but everyone had somewhere to live, and I had a lottery that no one bought tickets for. I made money by selling my unnecessary units (power because I lived in an apartment), which was lucky and got me through this year.
I got a job
as a time keeper for the national court session however none of these jobs are stable and provide a consistent income that will support my family, getting them every thing they need to prosper, for more than one year.
The three lessons you should learn...
You get out what you put in!
With anything you do in life, you have to do your best in order to succeed. Take the problem in the simulation for example... You need to engage in the program, put in much effort and the universe will reward you! If you put in a lot of effort in finding a job, getting a few like me, you will get what you need at one point or another. When you put your best effort into getting what you want, it will happen.
Persistence is key!
You must keep trying until what you get what you need. The example I have of this is when I didn't get any money from my first couple proposed jobs. At first I started a foundation for the poor, this did not end up getting any money. My second job was making a lottery, every one was too focused on getting what they needed to live versus gambling their sacred money. Eventually I found ways to make money... Even if it was only for the first year. All I'm saying is, if you want something bad enough (maybe you will die if you don't get it) you should work your hardest until you get it.
Search for your opportunities and take the ones you can get
. A lot of times in life you will have to give up a dream (only for the time being) in order to get by. For example, in life, you might really want to be a director of a movie, but there is not a high demand for movie directors at all! You search in the newspaper, because you're in desperate need of income, and see an opening at an office. You would be perfectly suited for this job and it is only temporary. You should take the job until there is a good time for you to get a job as a director. The office job will give you the money you need to support your family with food, shelter, and warmth!
Sometimes in life, you need to take the opportunities that you are blessed with, and keep looking for those for more!
