It’s YOUR Move
“Why play when I KNOW I am going to lose anyway?”
A few weeks ago I was watching a movie with my boys and heard one of the characters ask the above question out of sheer frustration.
I made a mental note to have a mini talk with my children to see what their thoughts were.
After all, the ancient proverb does say that “The thoughts of a man’s heart are like deep waters but a person of discernment will draw it up”. Questions are what assist me in knowing and understanding their thoughts.
We have heard it said before that “all the world is a stage and we all are players”. So I ask you; why play when you KNOW you are going to lose anyway?
Has it ever occurred to you that some of what you “know” is NOT based on accurate knowledge?
Sometimes all we “know” are the pieces or parts involved but not how they actually work. Incomplete or partial knowledge will NOT bring about success (if success is your desired result).
Twenty five years ago I was taught the names of the chess pieces. A few weeks ago my son decided it was time for me to learn how each piece moved. While they all have value and serve a purpose, I was struck by my lesson on the QUEEN.
The QUEEN is the only one with the ability to move backwards, forwards, and diagonally. She KNOWS how to move to get out of uncomfortable and unfavourable situations to get to her desired destination.
Are you playing the game using tactics that are NOT working for you?
What would you love?
Would you love to maneuver through life’s challenges in a way that guarantees YOUR success?
Everyone who competes in a game goes into strict training while keeping their eyes on the prize.
What is YOUR hoped for “prize”? Whatever that is for YOU, it is only attainable by first training your mind. With a renewed and transformed mind I guarantee that what you KNOW will surprise you.
