In order to make it in today’s world, you’ve got to have a healthy dose of grit and determination. You’ve got to know what you want, and have a plan to go out and get it!
You see… life is truly a game of “Win, Lose, or Draw”.
In truth, most of us will spend a great deal of time playing “Guess Who”, as we try and navigate a path to true friendships and love. Some will spend their lives playing “Charades”, guessing the motives of others.
Often times winning the game of life seems impossible! Especially when you’ve taken two steps forward, only to be dealt a card that pushes you three steps backwards. It’s during the times when we are the most vulnerable that we must decide whether to fold or keep going. Therefore it’s important to remember these three things:
1). There is always going to be someone or something that tries to “Monopolize” your time and energy. Therefore its important to balance life and work! If someone or something is taking up all your time, know when to walk away. Starting over isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes starting over allows us to learn from the mistakes of our past, and avoid them in the future.
2). Trust your intuition! It’s your “Clue” to what’s right and wrong in your life. You don’t need to explain your feelings to others – and there is never a need to justify them to anyone. Simply put… your inner guidance knows best.
3). Say I’m “Sorry”. It’s been said that the EGO is the soul’s worst enemy. It keeps us from saying the things we really need to say. We foolishly allow our EGO’s to get in the way of personal growth and development, because we believe that apologizing means admitting that we are wrong, or that the other person is right. Make no mistakes about it… in times of “Trouble” don’t be too stubborn to forgive, or too proud to apologize.
Life is a game.
REFUSE TO LOSE.
