Monopoly used to be the game. I always enjoyed playing monopoly as a kid. It takes a long time to actually finish a game, but I enjoyed playing the game and learning the strategy behind it. There are some lessons in the game that can be applied to real life.
1. Start Early – It seems it is never to early to start investing and hustling. Money is not going to just come to you. In monopoly you have to get as many properties as you can and as quickly as you can. Then you can start reaping the benefits when people drop by. If you wait, others will have already taken your spot. In real life you are losing time the longer you wait to get started. Time is something you can never get back.
2. Luck has a lot to do with things – There is a lot of luck involved with this game. If you land in jail, or don’t get the right properties in the beginning the game is harder for you. If you get doubles and just roll around the track, you can have a great time playing the game. Luck fortunately/unfortunately has its place in the real world as well. As the saying goes, the more you hustle the luckier you get. You have to play the game to get lucky.
3. Skill will put you past the lucky player – Life mimics the game of monopoly in many ways. The more strategic you are though, the better your chances of success. In this game and with life, skill can dominate luck over time. I have friends that get lucky, and then make the same mistakes over and over again. You have to progress and learn from your surroundings.
