Life is indeed a game as it is similar to gambling. In life, you either win something or lose something.
You cannot have everything in life. Life has its moments of ups and downs and highs and lows.
One cannot predict what new twist life may throw at you. In this journey of life, we make and lose friends. However, the important thing to remember is that you enjoy the game.
We Are All Players:
Every individual is a player in the game of life. There are numerous types of players in every aspect of the game. These players come from all walks of life. Some players last long in the game and some unfortunate players either fall prey to the game it or them quite the game of life after being unable to succeed.
Plan for the Game:
One cannot get past a game without proper planning. Similarly, in life, there will be many challenges. Challenges make life more exciting and they require planning and confidence to be overcome. For normal situations, people are aware of the moves to be taken. However for unforeseen circumstances, it is imperative to keep a plan ready. A plan helps in keeping one in the game and also with a certain edge over the others.
Play By the Rules:
In life, we have to play by the rules. Rules are the backbone of every game. Similarly in life, we need to abide by certain rules like no cheating, no unfair advantages, no bluffing etc. However, the rules in life can be bent over during times of grave emergency and peril. Thus, rules are important and must be observed carefully by each of the players failing which they can fall prey to the game.
We Are Responsible For Our Own Fate:
The key to our fates and the end result of the game of life lies in the hands of the individuals. Individuals are responsible for how they play or fare in life. The same is determined by the performance of the individual over the period of his life. If the person is indulged in wrongful activities which might affect his health, he will not last long in life and writes his own fate. A person driving negligently also faces the same problem. Fates are very rarely pre-determined during cases of accidents, unforeseen incidents and acts of God.
Thus, life is indeed a game. It does not matter whether you succeed or fail in life but it is important to stay in the present and enjoy the game of life. The game should be played in the right spirit and it should be able to shape the lives of the players in a positive way.
