I can remember spending hours with my sisters when I was a kid playing SORRY! and little did I know that it was going to tell me so much about how I was going to show up in life when I was an adult. I have frequently used the expression, “The way you do anything is the way you do everything”. I invite you to look at the way you use to play board games when you were a kid, or the way you do now for that fact. How do you play? Do you sit back and observe your opponents, then go in to play? Do you play full-out all the time? Or do you play in and out? Think about it. Then I invite you to look at how you live…… What are the parallels?
How are they similar? How do you engage with others? Even for that fact how do you engage with yourself? Do you play your board game honestly? Do you hide your cards or did you take them out at the last-minute…… Do you share all the time and give things away? How do you want to win the game? Where else in your life do these similarities show up?
I realize I have asked a lot of questions.. Really look at how you played/play any game. But the Game of life is not to be won or lost it’s merely played it’s never going to be won.
What would happen if we just simply played? When we play the board game the winning isn’t the goal….. What is it that the winning brings you? How does the winning make you feel? That is the goal! The winning is simply the strategy to reach the goal.
The way you do anything is the way you do everything.
