Life Is A Game
 

Life is a complicated game no one ever masters.
It is a never-ending test of will, of one's ability.
If you are to achieve a measure of success,
You must face life's challenges with integrity.
Set your goals high and work to attain them.
No matter the outcome, always play honestly.
Never fear your opponent in the struggle.
Rather, treat him respectfully.
Remember that he has goals, too, and if you are to win,
You must play the game aggressively.

Learn from your mistakes, your failures.
Accept your defeats with dignity.
Build upon your successes, your achievements,
And, should you be praised, receive it humbly,
For your talents and abilities are a gift from God.
Therefore, do not boast; rather, give Him the glory.
Know that life presents many challenges,
And each challenge presents opportunity.
Opportunity builds strength of character,
And character builds responsibility.

Although life is a complicated game no one ever masters,
Your success depends completely upon how you participate.
You can choose to lead and have others respect your name.
You can choose to follow while others receive the acclaim.
Or, you can choose to watch and only sit and cheer.
The choice is yours, so choose wisely, for you decide
your fate.
Life is truly what you make it, and you must persevere.
Have faith, be consistent, and know that He is near.
Always remember God put you here for a purpose.
Only He will decide when you quit the game.
