Imagine life was a game. And you are stuck in the game. How would you plan your own escapade?

If you’re anything like me, you’d try again and again until you figured out how to get out of the conundrum.

Every time you fail, you’ll acquire another data point. It would be information pointing to a scenario in which your expedition would fail. And believe me when I say that the more you try it, the better you will get at it.

So, by presumption, if you approach life in the same way, you will end up with the same results.

You will be given the same chance as everyone else, a chance to live, but under different circumstances.

If you tried to use predecessorial alternative tactics, it would plainly not work, and you would become irritated. But what if you treated life like a chess piece and calculatedly played your way to victory? Then you’ll get two benefits from the process:

Control is number one.

You will have complete control over every part of your movement, and nothing will be unfamiliar to you. And that’s because you’ve thought of everything that could go wrong in your own profession.

Happiness is number two.

This can come with a variety of definitions, but if you just define it as a feeling of satisfaction or ecstasy that occurs as a result of an action, we can use it in this context.
To put it another way, the more you construct and try, the more excited you grow about making and trying again. And that bliss may be one of the rarest kinds of happiness on the planet.

In other words, treat life as if it were a game. Assume the role of an actor. Be in charge of the entire set. Then try again and again until your narrative is complete and your play resembles what you imagined.

Also, keep in mind that no actor is ever actually upset on set, why? Because they had anticipated the situation.

That way, you’ll see that the beauty of life is found in always learning, building, and attempting new things.
