How life imitates chess

I think chess and life are very close to each other . The white and black is what we have to overcome in order to reach our life goals.

It is important to understand that it is you who control the pawns, how they move and what happens to them rather than thinking that you are the pawns and they are controlled by God, your genes, patter in society, just random or any other such idea. And if you can establish the thinking that you are responsible for anything that happens in your life or did not happen which you wanted to happen then you have come far on your way.

The black pawns is every kind of obstacle or problem coming or standing in your way in reaching your goals and the game is if you can reach your goals despite any and all reasons.

In chess you predict what your opponent is going to do and each and every move has a consequence and meaning in the overall game. The same is in life. If you can predict what will happen in the future when you do certain actions and how your actions affects everything else and you are good on your way.

sometimes while playing chess, its very useful to see the game  from the other side.Try to do the same in life, See life from other viewpoints and angles. Try the unknown, test things, learn, discover.

Probably the biggest difference between a game of chess and life is that in chess you know all the rules on how everything works. This is not so in life. In life you start as a child without a manual on how to live. Your parents and school will learn you a lot but most of the things you have to learn yourself. And many things are not easy. It is expected that you get good grades in school, find a good place to live, a job you like and successful children. This is not easy and some things can be very hard.

"YOUR ENEMY IS YOUR GREATEST TEACHER" ------------> Both in life and chess .The black pawns is what you learn from. Study how they move and what they do. See every setback as a new opportunity.

No matter how much you learn there is more you can learn. Never ever assume you know all about something.Focus on the things that will make you win over black and reach your goals in life.

And finally, you need to remember that there is always someone better than you and you should always be trying to improve.

"You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5, and the path leading out is only wide enough for one." (MIKHAIL TAL)

its true even in  our life ......... try to go with ur problem and leave them somewhere and come out with  success.CHECK MATE!!!!
