Playing chess is fun, but there are one or two lessons you can learn from it. What are they?

You learn the basics before playing

You can’t win a chess game without learning the basic moves. To be able to even win a chess game, you must understand how chess is played and other simple moves.

In the last post, I listed out some simple skills that can make you so much money. Thanks, goodness that lots of people responded, and they are getting trained already. It isn’t too late to acquire any of those skills and start your journey towards financial freedom.


You develop yourself before Advancing

In chess, you have to develop your minor pieces before you advance. Development means taking control of the center of the board. In most cases, whoever takes control of the board center has a higher chance of winning the game;

What this means

Personal development is important in helping you succeed in life. You must develop yourself in your key areas before you are able to move forward in life.

Skill acquisition is also one of the ways to develop your life. The more skills you have like;

Soft skills (Analytical thinking, ability to work under pressure, Oratory, etc)

Hard Skills (Graphics Design, Web App Dev, Mobile App Dev, etc)

Educational qualifications (Certifications, Trainings, etc)

All of these will position you to advance far in life without obstacles.

Learn to Exchange sometimes

In the game of chess, at some point, you have to exchange pieces just to move the game forward. This is usually set up by those who feel they are in a stronger position.

What this means

You can’t have everything in life. Sometimes you need to use what you have to get what you don’t have. It musn’t be in a bad way only, there are other ways to make exchanges that isn’t immoral. As long as it favors you, go ahead with the exchange.

Think of when buying someone’s idea or investing in an already existing business. Always use what you have to get what you don’t have!

Always protect your assets

Your most valuable piece on the board is your king. For safety, the king is hidden in a move called “Castling”. This will help protect the king from danger.

What this means

Identify your valuable assets and never lose them. They might be the skills you’ve acquired, your money, or knowledge.

No matter what happens, always protect those assets that are valuable to you. Never lose them for anything.

Think before you leap

Aside from the opening stages, it takes an average of 1 minute or more for a chess player to figure out the next step to take. This helps to curb failure and improve chances of winning.

What this means

How many times have you sat down to think about the possible outcome of any move you decide to make in life. Critical reasoning breeds success, and that is one of the foundations of success in life.


Keep fighting till the end

As long as the king isn’t checkmated yet, you haven’t lost. Keep looking for escape routes to force a draw.

What it means

It simply means don’t give up till you can no longer breath. As long as there is life, there is HOPE.
