The Game of Life

I’ve got a couple of projects in the works right now, and I have to tell you, I’m pretty excited about them!  In fact, I’d say I’m about as inspired and energized as I’ve ever been.  I feel that there are really some amazing things in the works, and it’s going to have a positive impact on a whole lot of people.

One of things I’m doing is writing a new book.  Now, I don’t want to spoil anything or give away too much, but in general terms, the book has a lot to do with how we live our lives.

Part of writing a book is doing research, and I love to dive into the perspectives that others have on the topics that I write about.  After all, there is a great possibility that there’s no such thing as objective reality…it could be that everything is entirely subjective.  If you’d like to dig a little deeper into that thought, please go check out my post called Judgment Call.

But getting back to the research thing, I’ve been checking out the ways that other people view and write about life.  There are many analogies for life, of course.  The journey, the trip, the dance, a box of chocolates, or even a bowl of cherries…

I was reading some articles and blogs and I came across a poem that talks about living life in terms of playing the game. I think it’s real interesting and offers a great perspective.  I’ve posted it below and I’d love for you to read it and leave me your comments.  Let me know what you think of this particular poem and also how you look at life.  Enjoy…

Playing the Game

Life is a game with a glorious prize,

If we can only play it right.

It is give and take, build and break,

And often it ends in a fight;

But he surely wins who honestly tries

(Regardless of wealth or fame),

He can never despair who plays it fair,

How are you playing the game?

Do you wilt and whine, if you fail to win

In the manner you think you’re due?

Do you sneer at the man in case that he can

And does, do better than you?

Do you take your rebuffs with a knowing grin?

Do you laugh though you pull up lame?

Does your faith hold true when the whole world’s blue?

How are you playing the game?

Get into the thick of it – wade in, boys!

Whatever your cherished goal;

Brace up your will ’til your pulses thrill,

And you dare – to your very soul!

Do something more than make a noise;

Let your purpose leap into flame,

As you plunge with a cry, “I shall do or die”,

Then you will be playing the game.
