How To Keep Calm – Strategies for Dealing With Competition

Strategies for Dealing With Competition

Watch this video on YouTube.

Today, I’m challenging myself to play a Call of Duty game without getting mad. I’m going to go for a hard core free for all and find a competitive lobby. The purpose of this goal is to show how to make a play in call of Duty and not get mad. I want to play the game and enjoy it and not get frustrated. I’ve gotten frustrated a lot playing Call of Duty.

I just heard an Eckhart Tolle quote. In the teaching, he said “thank you, I have nothing to complain about.” Every time I get killed, I’m going to say “thank you, I have nothing to complain about.” 

This is a huge difference from how I played most of my life. It’s also different from a lot of other people because every time they die in the game, they have a lot to complain about. That was bs, it lagged, that shouldn’t have happened.

This has a chance to work if you mean it. The idea is to accept and love and embrace things as they are. Do not get frustrated and  ultimately make yourself miserable by raging and screaming.

I love this because this helps me with my own practice. I’m grateful I can play call of Duty and be in a good state of mind. I don’t often get as upset the way I used to. I can usually play the game today and have a pretty good attitude. Still, I’m human sometimes, it lags sometimes things happen that I don’t agree with. Sometimes I rage and get mad. Sometimes I have a lot to complain about and that makes me miserable.

I’m doing this for you as well as me. The idea of this is to just try this out. Every time I get killed, I will say “thank you, I have nothing to complain about.”

The interesting thing is to see what kind of results you get when you have a good attitude. It’s easy to get a lot better results in the game, too. As I play the game, my mind is desperate to find something to complain about. Each time I die in the game, I remind myself that I have nothing to complain about. I notice that my stress level is low even at the end of the game when I realize I am not in the top 3.

I appreciate you sharing this with me. The idea of this is to give up my expectations on what should be going on. I have to give up the idea that I think I know how the game should be played. If I knew how the game should be played in every situation, wouldn’t I have complete control? Wouldn’t I be able to do anything I wanted to? What did I lose by placing fourth in the game? I didn’t lose anything. That free for all room was competitive. You can say whatever you wanted to, but I say that I’m grateful to have had the chance to play this game with you.

I’m grateful for a chance to be able to play Call of Duty and have a full stomach and a life that’s nice. I’m grateful to be able to share my videos with you. This is one of the things I do to make life good for me because I don’t want to be miserable regardless of what’s going on. Thank you for reading this. I pray to remember in any situation that I have nothing to complain about. I pray that if you would like to say that you have nothing to complain about you can give that a try. If not, that’s up to you. I’ve had enough misery and suffering in my life so I try to do what I can to avoid it.
