Are You A Pawn Or A King?

“At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go in the same box.”

Yes, it’s true. At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go in the same box. Death is common to all of us. It’s something that we all share. From the moment we were born, the only thing promised to us was death. However the difference between living like a king and living like a pawn is obviously the difference amongst the quality of life. At the end of the day, the quality of your life determines if you lived out a fun, energetic life or if you lived out a mediocre one.

Striving towards enriching your life is what it’s all about.

So either you’re a king or you’re a pawn.

Chances are when you were born you were born a pawn. This is very common. Almost everyone is born a pawn, unless you were lucky enough to be born rich.

For the most of us we are pawns. As we progress through life however we have the chance to become kings and queens.

The way we become kings and queens and transition away from being a pawn is by striving for something much more. By doing something much more with our lives. The moment you grow tired of the daily bullshit and transition away from mediocrity and towards greatness, your life will change. Believe me. The day you decide ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and get on your grind, your entire world will never be the same again.

From that moment on, you will see the world as a king or a queen. You won’t limit yourself anymore, instead you’ll aim to conquer anything you desire. You won’t be afraid of the possibilities of failure, instead you’ll be enthusiastic about your chances to succeed.

All this becomes possible when you stop thinking like a pawn and instead begin to think like a king.

Hence if you’re a pawn right now and want to become a king, you simply have to change the way you think.

I know this seems hard as hell to do, but just expand your mind.

The best way to expand your mind is by enriching yourself with usable knowledge.

(Another great way is by travelling the world and seeing new places).

Read, read, read.

Reading really expands your mind. Once your mind is stretched, it’ll never return to its normal dimensions.

For me, certain books really changed my outlook on life and that has made all the difference.

I went from being just another average dude who only soared to achieve what everyone else aimed to achieve to someone who wanted much more from life.

The moment I began to plant the seeds of greatness in my mind, my life changed.

I started to notice that the life lived by those around me was not for me.

I began to pick up on things that I never noticed before. I began to see that the average are trapped in a viscous cycle that they rarely escape. This cycle is the result of not chasing their dreams.

Hence I set out to chase after my dreams with full passion. I made a pledge to not stop until success was mine. Although I am still on this journey, the quality of my life has changed substantially as a result of my new found thinking.

With that stated, I encourage you to start thinking like a king or a queen and in return your entire world will change. Believe me. Here’s to your new found life. This is the first day of your new life. Make sure to create the life that you desire.

You are a king, not a pawn so act like it.

From this moment on, start to think, act, feel like a king or a queen. The days of you being a pawn have disappeared. That was your old life, this is your new one. From today, you will treat the world as your oyster. You will strive to succeed. The thought of failing will never reach your mind, instead you’ll let your passion influence your actions and hence by default you’ll create one hell of a life.

Life is to be created.

The creation of life all depends on you.

The life you are granted right now is not the end all be all. You can truly mold it in whichever way you please.

The first step you have to undergo is change. You have to change the way you think and the way you approach things in life. This is why reading up on self help books is a great idea because you truly gain a new perspective.

So in order to create a new lifestyle, you have to reinvent yourself.

The time to do so is now. Don’t let another day go to waste.

Make the change now so when you wake up a year from now, you’ll truly be amazed at the transformation. The only way to change your life is through action so take the necessary actions. Enough of laying around waiting for things to happen. Instead, go out there and make things happen. Be a go getter.
