Games have an uncanny ability to initiate and sustain certain behaviors in humans. While games can be viewed as a waste of time, or as I often say, “a simple manipulation of pixels”, games have great potential to create patterns that create real benefits in our lives.

As an old quote once said:
Think clearly because what you think becomes what you say.

Think carefully about your habits because habits form your character.
Examine your character because it becomes your future.
I believe games really do possess the ability to change our lives for the better… and now without further ado, please enjoy the video:
