Game of Life

“Life is 10% of what you make it and 90% of how you take it”- Anonymous

Life is the most confusing journey to understand. Filled with many thrilling milestones and the absence of any rules and limitation makes it very interesting. Some, who understand the game, excel at it, and become someone who we look up to in admiration for inspiration. Many of us are still struggling to figure out the game of life.

Though we all are playing the same game, it seems to be really favorable to some people and totally against the others.


The key to understanding this difference lies in understanding the way we react to difficult situations in life.

When a person with a successful mindset comes across a difficult situation, he perceives it as an opportunity for growth. This gives him enough inspiration to stand up against all odds and fight for what he wants. In this process he gets himself upgraded to a better personality that everybody finds attractive and therefore, he receives more opportunities than other people.

On the contrary, when a person who lacks a successful mindset comes across a difficult situation, he perceives it as an attempt of the universe and society to stop him from growing. This thought process demotivates him and eventually makes him lose any desire for success. He traps himself in a cycle when he puts in a little effort towards success but gives up midway when he encountered any obstacle. Such a person remains stagnant and does not attract any opportunity for growth.

It is all a matter of thoughts and therefore, completely in your hands. Look for the opportunity of growth and it will look for you.

Let me know your views on this.
