How about the dirt and pollution that accumulates in your mind? Do you clean them?
Here are some sources that may dirty and pollute your mind:
- News you read
- Internet surfing
- Books you read
- TV-soap operas
- FM radio
- Some of your friends
- Conversations you overhear
- Movies you watch
- Your own thoughts
I am sure you can come up with a personalized list.

Initially, I found the game difficult as I had to master new skills; Game after game, I lost to the opponents; Slowly, I began to improve and win. Initially, they were small wins, but later I started winning tournaments in the video game. I cannot begin to describe the thrill when I finally got to learn the skills to win matches.
Life is exactly like that. I immediately saw video games as medium to teach values such as perseverance, patience, resilience, staying calm even when there is a failure,--- the list can go on.
Video games are a good metaphor to teach children and also adults, wholesome values.
I feel the key is to point out the connection and provide guidance in transferring those values to real life.
