How To See Your Life As A Game—And Yourself As The Main Character

The reason I tell this story is because, first of all, it’s not what the audience is expecting.

Gaming taught me to see life as a game — and myself as the main character.

1. Action is your engine. Reflection is your fuel gauge.

“You are what you do tonight, not what you see in your mind. I learned this lesson in time.” — Journal

2. People hear your heart first, and your words second.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that your style is who you are. This is my voice, I’m naked. Please don’t shame me.” — Journal

“Now I’m feeding the soul what it needs to grow. A little rain, dripping, giving me this name Cole.” — Journal

4. Long-term success is dependent upon MASTERY.

“Everything you see, I earned myself. I want a whole lot more than wealth.” — Journal

5. Easy road leads to detours. Hard road leads to shortcuts.

“Don’t understand — feel the path. Be the change you want to see in modern man.” — Journal
