There is only one destination that we will all ultimately end up at.
No one can escape that fact.
That said, so many of us end up living a life of regret – spending our lives looking over our shoulders in fear of losing something that we will ultimately surrender upon death anyways.
Many of us spend our lives blindly following rules, ideas or norms that were put it front of us by others even though they never really resonated with us.
Many of us spend our time on this planet defending our precious little ego – getting upset whenever that ego is threatened.
That’s a shame simply because it doesn’t have to be that way!
Life is the best video game we could ever play. And just like the greatest video game, it’s set up to have challenges to make it fun to play.
I remember when I’d get the cheat code for invincibility in a Nintendo game and then I’d breeze right through it. Well guess what, the game became pretty fucking boring once I had that code!
Life has challenges and rewards worthy of our greatest efforts. So game on!
Stop taking things so seriously and getting so stressed out. So you had a fight with your boss at work? Okay. So you and your spouse are arguing about something? Okay. Your dog got run over by car? I know – it sucks. But remember, it’s ALL part of the ultimate video game and you have to treat it like that.
You will go through challenges and setbacks but that is how the video game is set up – those who win will keep playing and push through challenges (while expecting them to occur) until they ultimately win!
DAILY ACTION: Constantly remind yourself that you are an avatar in the greatest video game ever – expect challenges along the way, know anything worthwhile is never easy… and have an absolute blast playing the game!
