    What is your perspective regarding life-do you view life as serious business or as a game?

    In the day-to-day practicality of living I tend to view it somewhat as a game and don't take it too serious. But on a personal level, life for me is a journey and adventure - and I celebrate it in wonder.
    I don't see life as hard, only sometimes complicated. And I don't see it as cruel or unfair or bad... people can be this, but life is just life, and you are free to view it any which way you want.

    I look at it as a little bit of both. Taking life too seriously, has a way of creating a mindset of lack. Whereas not taking life seriously enough, has the same effect. So in essence: work hard, play hard, love hard, LIVE LIFE smile

    Interesting question... I think for the most part I take life quite seriously. It's myself that I can't help laughing at smile

    Well, I'm fifteen. I've also been sick for a while, and I couldn't do a lot of the things I wanted to do. I still have trouble day to day, so, right now, life is serious business.

    My whole plan is to just work so hard right now, while I have this down-time, on figuring out myself and how to get the most out of life. I work hard at school, I play an instrument that I practice every day, I'm trying to make some money off of hubpages as an extra, fun way to save up for college (not that hubpages really offers much), and I'm just really trying to make a good basis for my life by surrounding myself with good opportunities and good people.

    I am really happy though, and, later, if everything works out, I just want to do whatever I want. I want to have worked hard, gotten a job I loved, and have earned the money that I need to do anything I ever wanted to do. I just want to play when I'm older.

    Maybe that's naive and optimistic, but, if life is just a game, I want to win.

    Life is not a business or a game!. It is purely a Gift of nature. A human being live in this earth for 60 or 70 years. In this short period we think land, money etc are the most precious thing and as much as can have will secure the life.So we are serious to be think it business or as gambling game.
    But a uncured stomach pain, or uncontrolled loose motion will put you in think about how much silly we are!.
    It have a sudden break!
    Money, wealth,health, beauty, friends, relative,wife,children and whatever so, cannot  come to help or cannot useful to prevent the 'sudden break'. You alone will be call back.
    So, be useful to others, not be greedy, not be serious to anything, calm and happy towards the life and be kind enough towards every thing is required.
    Because we came here without our consent and we will call back without our consent.

    According to me life is full of joy and just be happy. If can enjoy your serious business like a game then just enjoy it to the fullest because you never know you will get the same chance again.

    It's definitely a journey, in my opinion. Everyday that we are here is a true gift and we are given the opportunity to make ourselves better, accomplish goals and spend times with the ones that we love. Everyone has a different view of what life is to them, but I cherish is dearly and wouldn't have mine any other way.

    I view it as a serious game. You can laugh all you want, but look down every now and then to be sure you haven't stepped in it.

    Life is indeed more like "serious business" then a simple game. Since life is a gift; it should be cherished, protected and it would be wise to be thankful also. I would think it would be most logical to treat your life (i.e. body) like a temple and look after it well...
