Life is a lot like a video game.
You are the main character in your story. You have a goal to accomplish. A target you might say before your life runs out.
However, there's one subtle difference. You don't get multiple lives to play the game here. You screw up for good and game over.
This feeling that you don't have lives to spare, gives you the motivation to make the most out of the one life that you got.
I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, today. In the movie, once the characters get sucked into the game world, they each have three lives to spare. This means, if they screw up once, they still have a chance left to do something better.
However, in reality, you don't get that many chances. Therefore, it's essential that you try to make your stay here worthwhile.
Do what you love. Go where you wanna go. Be the person you wanna be.
Life is too short to think about how the society or other people will judge you. Just do what you gotta do.
Another difference between a video game and life is that your mission may vary. Unlike a video game, you set your own mission and forge your destiny.
You wanna be an artist? Be one.
You wanna be an engineer? Be one.
You wanna be a musician? Be one.
Just use the one life you got, well. That is how you really win this game.
