When you begin to learn the rules of the game, you can avoid losing. The game is life, and not knowing the rules will cost you your game.
Throughout the game of life, players can choose between starting straight into a career or going to college, dealing with loans, stocks, buying a house, marriage and having children, retirement, taxes and payday. The game of life can be fun. It is simple but due to the nature and somewhat complexity of the game, it may take a while to catch all the life rules.
You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for as long as you live. How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life. Each day, you will be presented with opportunities to learn what you need to know. The lessons presented are often completely different from those you think you need.
There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error and experimentation. You can learn as much from failure as you can from success. A lesson is repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, then you can go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end. There is no stage of life that does not contain some lessons. As long as you live, there will be something more to learn. What you make of your life is up to you. You have the tools and resources you need. What you create with those tools and resources is up to you. Through desire, goal-setting and effort you can have anything you want. Persistence is the key to success.
