Growing up, I was so excited to get home from school on a Friday so I could play video games with my siblings. My favorite game was Yoshi’s Island. I absolutely loved the imagination of the graphics and images. Each level felt like I was going on another adventure, giving me another opportunity to help save the day.
As I got older, I began to feel connected with the analogy that life is a video game. Life is a journey full of challenges and obstacles that we must overcome to achieve an over-arching objective. But this time, we are the characters navigating the levels.
This blog post will explore life as a video game and how we can apply gaming strategies to real-life situations.
1. Setting Goals
In video games, we often have a clear objective or goal to achieve. This is true in life as well. We need to set clear and achievable goals to succeed. By having a specific plan in mind, we can focus on achieving it and track our progress.
2. Overcoming Obstacles
Like in video games, life is full of obstacles we must overcome to move forward. These challenges can come in many forms, such as financial difficulties, health issues, or relationship problems. However, if we approach these challenges with the right mindset and strategies, we can find solutions and overcome them. EFT Tapping is my favorite way to overcome obstacles.

3. Learning From Failures
In video games, we often fail multiple times before we can succeed. The same is true in life. We will experience failures and setbacks, but these should not discourage us from pursuing our goals. Instead, we should view failures as learning opportunities and use them to grow and improve.
4. Building Relationships
5. Pursuing Passions
In conclusion, the parallels between real life and video games are abundant. By setting goals, overcoming obstacles, learning from failures, building relationships, and pursuing our passions, we can navigate life’s challenges and achieve the success we crave. Applying gaming strategies to real-life situations can help us approach challenges with a positive mindset and increase our chances of success. So, just like in a video game, we should embrace life’s journey and enjoy the ride.
