Candy Crush is one of the top free-to-play games on iOS, and Android. It currently occupies the top spot for the most downloaded games for iDevices and android OS.
I got curious about this game after lots of my Facebook friends shared on their wall the achievements and levels reached for playing this game.
Due to the overwhelming story in my newsfeed about frustrations to complete a certain level and also the joy of accomplishing one. I decided to visit the app store and download the Candy Crush Saga.
Now I am only at level 21 (at the time of writing), but who knows after hours of playing the game I will be at level 100 or even higher.
Anyway, how fast I’m going to complete every level is not really important. Because one way or another, my skills in planning ahead and spotting the different candy patterns to accomplish each stage will level up eventually as I play the game. What really matters is these 8 Life Lessons that we can learn by playing the game called “Candy Crush Saga.”
These lessons tell us that life is a combination of fun and frustration. Every day we will encounter setbacks and challenges. But regardless life is still beautiful if we know how to appreciate it.
There are times when we get to experience that everything is working according to our ways and there also times when everything is messed up. But we choose to play the game of life and continues to move on just like in Candy Crush.
In any of our endeavors, we may repeat the same mistakes many times but the game will teach us to become persistent. Just like in the game, time will come, we will realize our mistakes and will choose a different course of action to avoid the latter from happening again.
We can also ask for help from friends to assist us as we deal with the challenges in the game. Similar in real life, seeking their opinion on how to face certain obstacles can help kickstart in solving our problems.
There is a golden rule that says “Do unto others what you want others to do unto you.” Which only means that when your time comes to help them, don’t hesitate to do so. Since, when you were in trouble they also lend a hand to help you.
Anyway, so much for my opinion, read the life lessons now.
