Snakes & Ladders – The Game Of Life

Do you like this story?

Have you ever played the game ‘Snakes & Ladders’?

It’s a bit like life. Snakes take you down or backwards, and ladders take you up or forwards. In life, after you have experienced the exhilaration of a ladder, it is quite possible that you could bump into a snake. But on the flip-side, after experiencing the humbling emitted by an encounter with a snake, your next move could land you at the foot of a ladder.

However, at the end of the day, it’s not the number of ladders or snakes that you face in your life that will determine your fate.
Your future in the game of life is determined by one thing, and one thing only – movement. Just keep moving ever forward. Don’t stop at the foot of a snake and throw away the dice. Just keep moving. Get up again, and keep moving.

Oh sure, you might like to pause for a moment to recharge the batteries, or even have a little cry, but then persist, persist, persist, and on the way learn, learn, learn from your mistakes or misfortunes – until you reach the finishing line as a seasoned victor.
