I was surfing the internet a little while ago for vintage video games and came across one of my favorites as a child. The game was called PONG. If you remember the game is set up kind of like tennis or ping pong (hence the name). You control a simple bar considered your paddle on one side of the screen while your opponent has a paddle on the other side. The object is to not let the ball go past your paddle. The more successful you are the larger your paddle becomes. When you make a mistake your paddle decreases in size.
This game is very similar to how personal development works. When your paddle is small the ball seems to be moving at lightning speed. When your paddle is larger the ball seems to be moving very slowly. In reality the ball speed is always the same.
The world slows down when you gather your resources and become a better and better person. Never try to control the speed of the ball. That’s a losing battle. Rather increase the size of your paddle.
Don’t wish things were easier, wish you were better. – Jim Rohn
