Rules for How to Win at the Game of Life

What would you say separates high achievers from everyone else? What is it that they do, and what is it that they know that gives them such a superior advantage? Do they possibly understand things that the majority of people simply aren’t aware of? Just maybe life is kind of like playing a game, and these high achievers know the secret rules of this game and therefore understand how to play it to their advantage. But are these rules for winning the game of life really a big secret? Are they only bestowed to the chosen few? Well not today! Here are the six rules for winning at the game of life.


1) SET CLEAR AND EMPOWERING GOALS

How to Succeed and Win at the Game of Life

The first rule for winning the game of life is to set clear and empowering goals. Goals are of course important for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they help improve your mental focus. When you set goals you work with more urgency and purpose. In other words, they help provide you with a sense of direction for your life. As a result your mental focus is driven by the priorities you set that help you achieve those goals. Secondly, goals enhance your level of commitment and inspire passion. However, in order to fully commit yourself to this journey, you must clearly outline why you want to achieve these goals in the first place.

2) CONSISTENTLY STRETCH YOUR COMFORT ZONE

The second rule for winning the game of life is to consistently stretch your comfort zone. This is of course important when it comes to goal achievement. After all, everything you want essentially lies outside the boundaries of your comfort zone. You will actually need to step outside your comfort zone to grab a hold of these goals. Unfortunately, a great many people simply don’t take this necessary step. They don’t take it because every goal comes riddled with problems that must first be overcome. However, little do they realize that overcoming these problems will stretch their comfort zone and move them closer to their prize.

3) GENERATE PLENTY OF BAD IDEAS

The third rule for winning the game of life is to generate plenty of bad ideas. As you stretch your comfort zone you will deal with a vast array of problems. Overcoming these problems may not be easy, and many times you might even be forced to think quickly on your feet. As a result you will make some poor choices that won’t seem to work in your favor. But that shouldn’t stop you from trying again, and again. Life is a number’s game. Don’t be afraid to repeatedly take a chance on yourself. The more times you try and fail, the higher the likelihood you will succeed the next time around.

4) MAKE MISTAKES AND LEARN FROM THEM

The fourth rule for winning the game of life is to make mistakes and to learn from them. As you repeatedly try new things to overcome your problems, you are bound to make mistakes. Mistakes are simply a part of life, and a part of living that life. They are a natural part of the human experience, and we all of course make mistakes. However, those who don’t win at the game of life simply don’t take the time to learn from their mistakes. Life only rewards those who learn from the errors of their ways. It rewards those who treat every experience as a lesson that helps them move forward in a better way.

5) WORK SMARTER AND HARDER THAN YESTERDAY

How to Win the Game of Life

The fifth rule for winning the game of life is to work smarter and harder than yesterday. Those who make progress in life do so because they are constantly learning, growing and improving. They are building ever greater momentum toward their goals because they learn, adapt and upgrade their effort, skills, knowledge and methods. They clearly understand that in order to do better they must get better, think faster, and work smarter than the day before. They strive to make consistent improvements in a multitude of ways. Life is after all a game of inches. You gain an edge by beating your best-self today.

6) EXPOSE YOURSELF TO NEW IDEAS, PEOPLE AND PLACES

Life Rules: How do you play the Game of Life

The sixth rule for winning the game of life is to expose yourself to new ideas, people and places. We only grow and develop ourselves when we experience new things, when we learn something unique, and when we step outside the boundaries of our comfort zone. Expanding your horizons in this way provides you with new perspectives and opportunities for further growth and development. And as you grow, you gain ever deeper insights and understandings into your life and circumstances. You then grow wiser with the passage of time and subsequently make more optimal choices and decisions moving forward.


CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

As you can see, the rules for winning the game of life aren’t complicated, and they’re certainly not one of life’s great big secrets. We all know and understand these rules, but how many of us actually put these rules into practice?

A great many people don’t become high achievers because they are just not willing to put in the work to play the game of life as it was supposed to be played.

Yes, of course life isn’t all about rewards and accomplishments. But these rules are not just about that either. These rules are about challenging yourself to live your life to the fullest in the most optimal way possible, so that in the end, there are no regrets.

Adapting to the Seasons of Life

How do you typically deal with change? Do you tend to embrace it, or do you resist the changes that life throws your way? What if I told you that life is very much like the seasons. We go through our summers, autumns, winters and springs. Each of these seasons of life bring with them valuable lessons that we can use to help us move forward in a better way. Instead of resisting them, we can learn to embrace them and then use the seasons of life to help us live life in more optimal ways.


THE SEASON OF SUMMER

The season of summer is built upon good planning, solid decision-making, risk-taking, goal accomplishment, and a chance to capitalize on the opportunities that life sends your way. Summer is therefore a time for reward, fulfilment and celebration. It often inspires courage, confidence and passion.

Summer is the perfect time for expanding your comfort zone, for networking with interesting people, for travel, for leisure, for thinking creatively, proactively, and for taking massive action toward the attainment of your goals and objectives. It is a period in your life where everything you have been working toward during spring is now part of your life experience. All those new habits you built, the skills you developed, the knowledge you acquired, and all that hard work you put into achieving your goals has paid off, and you are now basking in the glory of everything you have managed to accomplish.

Consider for a moment what impact the summers have had on your life over a lifetime. Consider what they have taught you about yourself, about others and about living your life. Consider also how they have shaped and transformed your personality and built your character. What valuable lessons have you learned from the summer seasons of your life?

THE SEASON OF AUTUMN

The season of autumn is built upon pessimism, failure, hesitant action, unrealistic thinking, poor decision-making and a contracting comfort zone. Autumn is therefore a time for problems, mistakes and life transitions. It often unearths disappointment, stress and frustration.

Unfortunately the season of summer didn’t last. You made some poor choices and now you have all these problems on your hands. Possibly you failed to capitalize on opportunities that could have moved you forward in a better way. Or just maybe you made mistakes and things unfortunately just didn’t work out as you had expected. Anger, overwhelm and anxiety are driving you crazy as you try to navigate your way through massive disappointment. But even though you might not be in a good place right now, autumn brings with it the opportunity for transition and change.

Consider for a moment what impact the autumns have had on your life over a lifetime. Consider what they have taught you about yourself, about others and about living your life. Consider also how they have shaped and transformed your personality and built your character. What valuable lessons have you learned from the autumn seasons of your life?

THE SEASON OF WINTER

The season of winter is built upon poor habits, ineffective choices, critical thinking and an inner desire for personal transformation. Winter is therefore a time for planning, self-reflection and hibernation. It often unearths regret, fear, and grief. And yet, there also seems to be a little hope for a better future.

The season of autumn was obviously very difficult. The awkwardness of that period of your life led to the development of poor habits that have brought you here to this very moment. You now fully understand the impact of all your poor choices and the failures and mistakes that pulled you out of the glorious season of summer. Yes, none of this feels good, but it’s not supposed to. You are in a significant transition period of your life. Deep self-reflection and planning is exactly what you need to get your life back on track. It’s time now to think realistically and thoughtfully about the foundations you must build to move your life forward.

Consider for a moment what impact the winters have had on your life over a lifetime. Consider what they have taught you about yourself, about others and about living your life. Consider also how they have shaped and transformed your personality and built your character. What valuable lessons have you learned from the winter seasons of your life?

THE SEASON OF SPRING

The season of spring is built upon the development of new skills and habits, the acquisition of knowledge, and a deeper level of self-understanding. Spring is a time for dynamic thinking, learning and opportunity. It often triggers excitement, anticipation and a sense of purpose and direction.

During winter you built the foundations for spring. The time you spent on self-reflection and planning have helped shift and transform how you think about yourself and about your life. Moreover, this period of self-reflection has awakened within you a burning desire that now propels you forward. You have found your energy and swag once again, and are excited to learn new things and expand your understanding and awareness. Spring is a season where you start building empowering routines and habits that support incredible and challenging new goals that move you forward with great energy and enthusiasm.

Consider for a moment what impact the springs have had on your life over a lifetime. Consider what they have taught you about yourself, about others and about living your life. Consider also how they have shaped and transformed your personality and built your character. What valuable lessons have you learned from the spring seasons of your life?

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS

We move through the seasons of life many times over the course of a lifetime. These seasons follow a natural cycle and rhythm that helps us to learn, grow, and to better understand ourselves on deeply profound levels of awareness.
