Most people consider life a battle
If you would follow society’s advice on how to become successful, it would oftentimes sound something along the lines of: “Always be on time, do your best, work hard, go the extra mile, there’s no gain without pain, never give up…”.
Even if there would be some truth to these statements, you would still be playing by the rules of society, which quite frankly won’t guarantee you any success. But don’t take my word for it, just ask yourself: is working hard a guarantee for success? We probably all know someone (or many people) who worked hard their entire lives, yet died poor and non-successful.
So, what’s the secret then? As Florence Scovel Shinn puts it: life is a game, the spiritual laws are the rules and whoever plays by these rules, wins whatever they truly desire. So let’s dive into the rules of the game, shall we?
