Beat the Boss in Life

Life is like a video game.

There are levels you have to play through. There are opponents, power ups, short cuts, cheats, tricks and many more. There can even be choice based endings and real-life physics.

But if you notice that for you to beat a level and go to the next, there is usually a 'Boss'. Those of you who play games regularly know what it takes bring down a boss. It might need a variety of skills and lots of hard work and patience.

The analogy of life with video games is here.

If your current life is like a level in the video game, you will inevitably encounter the 'Boss' you need to beat to get to the next level. Now, you have two options, either muster all your efforts and beat the Boss, and elevate your experience by moving to the next 'level' in life or you can give in during any part of the level and continue living the same life.

So, if you want to improve your life experience, or simply wish to have a change in track, you have to prepare to face your own 'Boss' and bring him/her down. If you love the experience of the current life, please don't take the efforts for beating any Boss. Just die and play all over again. The choice is in your hands.

Thanks to Nikil.V for leading me to this stream of thought.

PS: The Boss here has no resemblance to your superior in your office. It is purely pointing to the video game context.
