Nobody wants to play a game they know they’ll win 100% of the time. Guaranteed #success is not fun.
We want to play games that we have a fair chance at winning. And a good game is not defined by who wins or loses, but rather how enjoyable the challenge was.
Life is similar. All it requires is to shift our focus from the outcome of winning to the joy of playing.
Since we’re competing against no one but ourselves – the key is to play at the edge of our competence. To find that zone where we can confidently pursue our potential and find learning opportunities in failure.
Life is a game, we just need to remember to have fun.
