Life as a Set of Cards: The Responsibility of Being a Good Player
“With great responsibility, comes great power.” You entered the game one way or another, make it a legacy worth remembering.
Life is like a game of cards. There´s a deck for everybody. Some might get better cards than others. Some might get the worst cards there could possibly exist.
And for those who received the “worst” cards, it can be easy to neglect them. To complain about the luck they have in dealing with those cards. They go on a journey to amend this, now with fewer or not even cards at all.
The beauty inside this game of life is that no matter the cards you were given, the choices you make with those cards determine the value of the game you are playing.
For sure, there are stages of the game where no card at all is going to make you win. Or stages where no matter how good the decisions you take are, you´ll always end up nowhere near the path you sought.
But even if life gave you cards to start the game, you aren´t required to hold of those cards for “winning” or finding amusement and fulfillment in the game.
There are risks and consequences of losing these cards, of trading them for new ones. Of finding another set of cards along the way; But that´s how you live the game.
The people who consistently make the best decisions with what they are given, despite every thought of losing what they have... are the ones who move ahead in the game.
They thought, they analyzed, but they executed, knowing it was the best move they could make.
And these people could have gotten the worst set of cards. Yet, they still managed to somehow win the game they were playing.
So, value the cards you are given, because it is a start. A good one. You can start with no cards at all, but that isn´t the thing stopping you from playing.
You can observe, learn, adapt.
When you grab your first card to compete in the game the way you wanted to... you´ll understand the power behind you as a player, not of the cards you have in your possession.
Are you going to start now? Choose wisely.
