Snakes & Ladders

I feel a bit like Forrest Gump, because I want to observe that “Life is like a game of Snakes & Ladders”.

Both in personal and professional life it seems to be that you work really hard to build momentum, begin to forge ahead and then just as you are beginning to feel that you are going to break through to the next level of the game, suddenly something happens to propel slithering down a snake. 

It is really hard to pick yourself up and begin the game once more.  However, what choice do you have?  I think you have to just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and like the song says, start over.  I’m not sure that I’ve felt that the snakes have taught me much, it seems much more a test of resilience than a lesson.

What is your experience?  How do you motivate yourself to rejoin the game?   Do you just recast the dice or try a different strategy?

    LOL I treat those times like a test of my fortitude! I think that the stronger you get the more life throws at you! Perhaps it is true perhaps it is not but thinking that way stops me from wallowing for too long 🙂
