Game as Life

Do you ever wonder if life is really a game? Do you somehow play it fairly and whole-heartedly? Do you follow the rules properly in which you can excel to the next level? Do you find life’s intention, purpose, and goal? Along with all these questions, rules, and regulations in this world we are living at, you should be able to survive and succeed in life.



            The moment you stepped on the ground where you came from, you already belong to one of the many players who aspire to win in life. According to a movie entitled The Legend of Bagger Vance, it inferred that the game is the one that only you were meant to play and is the one that was given to you when you came into this world. You should take your stance and don’t hold nothing back. Give it everything. Each one of us is given a chance to live life our own way and to play it well significantly.

In a game, there are rules and consequences to be acquired. It’s the same thing in life. For you to win there are steps to be followed. These steps are to know your purpose, get good education, build your character, work hard, love and be loved, follow your heart, and aim for your goal. But just like in a game, you will never always prevail and take the next level in just one go.

Life has many ins and outs, ups and downs, wrong turns and right ones, and then sometimes, you will end up failing. But that doesn’t matter. All these are just obstacles that will keep you strong and determined. What if you are just one-way through to the last level but you failed, didn’t try again, and completely gave up? You should not worry about losing. Trying again will never hurt you. Remember that you can always restart the game you’re on, learn from the mistakes you made, move on, continue until you have mastered it and you will find yourself smiling until the end.

Yes. Life is a game. The world is the game board. You are the player. If you know how to play it, then you’re on the right track. Just enjoy, have fun, get a lot of courage and faith in it. A quote made by Goethe once struck my mind. He said that if you just trust yourself, then you will know how to live. Some people say that reality is the worst game ever. They are wrong. Prove to them that they are wrong. Start, go, and get your right tools and armors and fight for your dream, reach your goal, and grab your success.


So, are you halfway there to your finish line?
