I many days playing Super Mario World on my Nintendo Gameboy and there are a few things I learnt that I feel have helped me in life, and here they are:
Never give up
Super Mario would only run in one direction and it was always forward. No matter how many obstacles were in his way he wouldn’t give up until he was dead, and even then you’d start all over again.
Don’t grow up too fast
I don’t know if it was just me but I prefer small Mario, rather than the one after he’s eaten a mushroom. Getting too big too fast was a problem on some levels.
Fight for your woman
It took me days to rescue miss daisy but I don’t regret it, and Mario has shown me that you should always fight for the one you love.
