Life is a Game

February 9, 2012

… Life is definitely a game… I say this all the time. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, what matters is how you play the game.

If we could see that our lives are perfectly orchestrated by us, we would not put so much stock in external drama. We buy into our illusions as being real – all the day-to-day drama seems overwhelming at times and we think we might not make it through.

The fact is, we are always in control. We are the ones who are orchestrating all the moves on the table. Sure, we may make a bad move here or there and we may even lose a game or two, but the winning is in the learning behind every bad move. We learn the most from our bad moves and our opponent’s bad moves. Never despair, there is always another game to be played and always another opportunity to make a different move. 

In the game of life, the king or the queen can always be taken out. But we are never the king or the queen that gets taken out, we have to remember that we are bigger than that… we are the ones with free will and we are the ones that are making the moves that affect our lives everyday. We are in control. As long as we are in this body, we are in complete control of every move we make. We are never the pieces getting dragged off the board.

Remember that you are never a victim of your life. You are the one strategizing your next move at every given moment. Ultimately, it’s not about winning or losing. The wins are always in the lessons, never in the number of pieces left on the board.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
