In the game of life we play different games. Some games are fun, some games are scary, some could be challenging, but at the end of the day there is no escape to the different games that are on our path of life.
may think, HOW IS MY LIFE A GAME?, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PLAY, when I
have so many problems on my plate. Well, I can offer you this
perspective to view all those situations that are present in your
life.... You can think in this way: “My life is full of problems and I
do not know how to begin to solve them” or you can think this way:
“Every challenge in life is a game worth playing and I will find the
best strategy to Play-to-Win?” I am sure that the positive view of the
second alternative is clearly the one that will move you into action and
fulfill your goals.
problem is that in our culture we have been trained to think that our
purpose in life is to work hard; then, if we have some time left, we
should play and have fun. That’s not how we were created as human
beings, and that is why the word “stress” is part of our daily

and Apple...they do not have “workers”, they have “players” that
integrate into their game. These companies promote strategies that
inspire every person there and facilitate their creative minds;
experiences that expand skills and inspire consciousness. While you play
you will create wealth for yourself and others based on what you value.
are living on an era of computers, Xbox, smartphones and apps.
Everybody look forward to play some kind of game using technology; games
are not only for kids, adults are playing as well. We can adapt that
“spirit of play” to our daily life if we know that the end result will
be one that will promote joy and fulfillment. When you “Play-to-Win” you
have purpose; you have the intention to give the best of of yourself
with the vision of reaching your goal.
don’t know about you, but to me this is a better way to live my life
and find my purpose. We all have a choice in the way we confront our
challenges. As Coach Dave Buck teaches “To
wake up every day into an exciting game that is fun to play and
fulfills your purpose; rather than a job that is a not winnable game that
never ends; checking off tasks on a bottomless list!!!”
Are you ready to PLAY-TO-WIN the Game of your Life?
