Real life is the game that – literally – everyone is playing
Life ,as it appears , is a game played by everyone at every moment. It is like one of those endless run games where one runs in a particular direction avoiding obstacles. The goal , however, i realized by a few people and conquered by fewer.
It seems rather pointless to head for the same direction as everybody else. But nonetheless, we still play the game.
The game starts when we are young. It is when we learn the rules of this game. We are overflowing with our zeal and have plenty of energy. At this moment of time, we get to choose a character while the bigger deals like job,car,house,lover etc are still to be unlocked.
Our experience is still low and a few skill set also remains locked. It is for us to unlock them. And as we grow, we evolve these traits continuously. One of them being how to obey. Sometimes you may find your own mind going against you, for example it is always hard to resist the temptation to come online in exams. DON’T PANIC. This isn’t a bug in you source code.
Once you master your mind, try playing with others’. You will feel a sudden urge to find a partner. This task is ,in itself, a mini game. You will require heavy artillery because this level may be close to world war.You may be rejected by several other players. This ,however, is normal, may diminish your willpower. Try to maintain a minimum threshold of it for other tasks. You may be allowed multiple lives at this level, you might just want to play smart to achieve the best lover.
Once you complete this level, you will find difficulty increased exponentially. With greater responsibilities and much more expectation you may find it difficult to achieve your ultimate goal. But keep your eye on the ultimate prize as this was just a auxiliary mission that you’ve completed. Meanwhile, this level also unlocks several achievements like Happiness, Love and Headache.
Now, it is the time to earn. This is the most important level with almost unlimited upgrades and achievements.
The most important rule of money is never to borrow it, except for things that earn you more back.
Recurring deposits like education may act as a good investment scheme with substantially larger returns for longer period of time.
As time passes you will find your energy reserve depleted and slower recovery. These may be symptoms of aging. Check for other symptoms like Hearing problem, walking problem, health issues etc. If the reports are positive, it may be time for you to retire and save your energy. All players die after about 29,000 days, or 80 years. If your stats and skills are good, you might last a little longer.
Remember there are no cheat codes to this game. That’s why your strategy is important. Because by the time most of us have figured life out, we’ve used up too much of the best parts.
Now you’d best get playing.
