Have you ever found yourself asking questions, such as ‘Why is life so hard?’ ‘Why do things have to be so complicated?’… I surely have. And you know what? At some point I realized that everything is truly as complicated as we make it.

You have been blessed with an incredible power to control your thoughts and actions. Even the extent of this control is entirely up to you.

Look at your life and the world as a game. It’s a game to which each of us has been brought without being taught the rules. We have to figure them out on our own. But that’s the part of the game as well…

Life is a very special game. It contains many other, smaller games and the ones you’re going to play will more often than not be your own choice. This is a game in which you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You are already naked. Everything you have, including your possessions, your friends, your family and your own life will go away at some point. It’s the only thing you know for sure – that you’re going to lose literally everything. But such a perspective can be a blessing. Stop holding on, just let it go. Trust. There’s nothing to be afraid of.

Once you realize you have nothing to lose, you’re much more likely to take chances, be playful. And that’s, after all, the point. You discover in yourself the courage to make moves you never imagined yourself making before. You make a move and you go with the flow. You become an observer. With a curiosity of a child you observe the outcomes and then, you adjust.

It’s all fun. But then you discover something else. You discover your natural tendency for growth, for progress. Playing on the same level gets boring, so you have to find ways to step up, to transcend into new levels of consciousness. That’s when you realize the point of the game.

And the point is to expand.

Stop taking life so seriously. Once you do, life becomes easy.  Remember, if it gets too complicated, it usually means you’ve made it complicated in your own mind. Don’t be afraid to let it go. Life is a journey, just a short moment in the entirety of our existence. You are already a winner. Stop overthinking, just go with the flow, play with it, emanate the positive energy and make it more fun for others too! Imagine your perfect world and make it happen. It’s your move, make it count!
