I am a game builder and I have created a whole new game for you.
Here is how it works.
Each time you play, there is a 90% chance that you will lose!
Yeah, you heard that right – 90% chance that you will lose.
BUT – the amount that you lose, is capped.
YOU WILL NEVER lose more than a certain amount, which is known to you already.
No matter how much you bet, the loss is always up to a maximum loss. Never beyond that.
10% of the times that you play this game, you can win.
And when you win, you can win BIG. There is no upper limit. You can win infinitely. More than you ever needed in life.
In short, 90% of the times you lose with a maximum loss (you will not lose beyond that), and 10% you win with no maximum gain (you can win any amount – no upper cap).
Here is my question for you.
How many times will you play this game?
Here is my answer.
?Every single day of my life!
?If I know that my loss is capped but my gains are infinite, I will play this game as many times as I can, to get to that 10% win probability.
This, my dear friend, is the game of life.
If you are reading this post, you understand English, are most probably consuming it on a smartphone, so you can afford it and also have access to high-speed internet.
What this means is that whatever risk you take in life, your loss is capped.
WHATEVER risk you take – you are NEVER going to lose everything.
We are all privileged. We are never going to die of hunger or poverty. We are never going to be there on the streets.
Our losses are capped.
They are notional in our head – what will people say, I will not have as much as others, others will make fun of me.
These are not losses.
These are feelings.
Our actual loss in life is capped – whenever we take any risk.
But if we win, IF WE WIN – we can change our entire life!
If this is truly the game of life, I would play this game again and again and again and again and again and again!
