3 Games of Life

At any given moment, we have the opportunity to choose how we want to play the games of life. This includes how we make decisions, where they lead us, what drives us, and how we ultimately show up.

Here are 3 games to consider.

1. Reaction Game

We subconsciously react to moments in our life. Our choices are influenced by others. We become defensive with our minds in full control to protect our insecurities. We’re driven by status, comfort and the pursuit of survival.

We show up with fear when we play this game.

2. Creation Game

We consciously choose to create and design moments in our life. Our choices are intentional and rooted in vision. We become inspired to build and navigate chaos. We’re driven by curiosity, growth and the pursuit of purpose.

We show up with courage when we play this game.

3. Acceptance Game

Our moments and choices fade into a path of surrender. We no longer have to choose, we just experience. There is nothing left to become… but rather things to be with, accept and integrate. We’re driven by awareness, love and the pursuit of peace.

We show up with presence when we play this game.

Most humans play reaction games. Some humans play creation games. Few humans are able or willing to play acceptance games.
