Snake and Ladder is one of the most famous games in which we all have tried our hands-on and if the angle can be twisted a bit and seen, it’s a pure game of success and failure. The player will get bitten by snakes multiple times and still go up the ladders and win. If the game and the rules of it can be zoomed out more, then it could also be seen that how the player finds a totally different way to ride up the ladders after falling down getting bitten by the snake.
Here, the game board is life, the player is us, the snakes are hurdles, ladders are the various different opportunities and the end is the success which was being chased by us for a long time. We all are in a Snake and Ladder game if we see from that insight. It does not teach us ‘don’t give up you will achieve what you want’ but it teaches us that even starting the chase from somewhere else, changing the fields will also lead you to win.
Once or twice or multiple times in our life, we see people schooling us about how it is not a good idea to give up on anything but we never get schooled that it’s okay to move on from something and keep on moving. Moving on doesn’t mean insanely chasing something all over again that has been failing us for so long but to relinquish it and start a new ride. Ideas vary world widely upon the routes being taken for success but it’s a universal fact that success involves failures; they are a role player in success. On a journey to achieve success? Failures will by the various stoppages before you reach your destination.
When we come across some situation that failed us or brought us to failure, the first thing we do is blaming our stars or luck and the second thing we do is blaming the resources available then, the last and rare thing we do is blaming ourselves. We never see it in a way that the failure is trying to deliver the signs that either work harder or draft a new plan, chase something which is the next best opportunity for you and who knows that failure is trying to redirect you to that next best thing (in your knowledge) which is actually the best thing to you.
Studying failure brings hidden reasons in light, it lets us abandon the things which aren’t working and implies us on trying something new. Trying something new can take you to the height where you stand and say “this failure changed my life”. Rare are the persons who are lucky to have life-changing experiences out of the blue, without analyzing or examining the failure but practical are the stories which say turn your failure into a life-changing experience. Accept failures, read the signs if they say change your game because in the end its all success that we want no matter, how much awaited or how much early it has been.
