According to Success Magazine’s article, “5 Rules to Win the Game Life” the writer Brendon Burchard writes about having a vision for yourself. When an individual envisions their future, there are some questions they should ask themselves. “Some of these questions may seem simple, but for some, it’s very hard to narrow down what the process is to achieve them. One thing you may want to ask yourself is ‘what are your dreams?’ or ‘what do you want from life — where do you see yourself going?’ these are the questions you can ask to help narrow down how you want to go about winning the game of life,” says Matthew Goodchild, managing director of Chicago Vision. We know that it’s very competitive out in the real world and there’s a bit of luck involved to actually make it to the top. However, that does not disregard the amount of work that goes into becoming someone that you are proud of and can look at when you pass 10 years into the future, and look back at yourself.
“The key to winning the game of life comes from focus and hard work. It’s about believing in yourself and having faith that your dreams/goals are worth it. If you don’t think they are worth it, no one else will,” mentions Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. Burchard in relation to this key, writes “When you have that vision, dream, desire, you’re going to have fun on this journey, even when it sucks, even when it’s difficult, even when you’re dealing with someone you don’t like. Whatever you got, whatever you’re dealing with, just say, I’m going to bring the fun. I’m going to bring the joy into this situation proactively. I’m not going to wait for something to happen for me to have fun. Whatever way you enjoy life, whatever way that fun, joy, zest and enthusiasm sparks for you—make that happen.”
Another great rule to live by in life is being patient. “Patience is so underrated. Everyone says it, but no one actually does it. It takes a tremendous amount of patience, backed by action and persistence to push through,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. Burchard says, “To be a learner, you have to have patience with yourself, but the critical element is that you have to be persistent. You’re allowing time to take place as you’re putting these things in, you’re allowing the universe to align with your desires, dreams and focus. You are also not stopping. You are persistent in your actions. It’s that peaceful warrior that you are working toward. You are fighting. You are struggling to move toward it, but at the exact same time, you’re cool.
