There are many books that have made a difference in my life. One of them is by Tony Robbins, and it’s called ”Awaken The Giant Within”. He shares that the quality of your life is determined by the questions you ask. He explains that our worldview can be defined by the life metaphors we have. For those of us who haven’t been in an English classroom for awhile, a metaphor is a way of explaining an unknown by comparing it to a known.
For example, some people may believe that life is a game. For those who think that life is a game, there’s a good chance they see life as being fun, playful, and adventurous. There can be a downside to this metaphor, however, because it can also mean that there is always a winner and a loser. In other word, life could be seen as a zero-sum game. I don’t necessarily think that’s true.
