Here are the missions:
You’ve quit playing games and now you’re ready to re-engage life, and over the next 30 days you’ll do just that.
It will help you build character, develop more confidence and have fun doing it. And during this process as you become more confident, it will inspire more of what you want your vision to be.
We will start by develop the skills of Courage, Discipline, Social Intelligence, Contribution and Tenacity. Each skill has five separate missions for you to complete before going on to the next one. And before we begin with each of those I have five beginner missions, the Starter Kit.
Throughout the course of our life, and whether we want to or not, we will run into an obstacle called fear. Fear comes in many forms and has a level of influence in the direction of our life… and the choices we make few of us consciously desire.
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, and others make it happen.” ― Michael Jordan
Over the next five missions and five days, your discipline will be tested. How bad you want it will be challenged. But by pushing through adversity and refusing to give in, you will tap into a source of energy you have in your life that will lead you to be successful.
“If you hide away and avoid social experience, your brain isn’t going to have the opportunity to learn from it.”
Quitting video games can be lonely, but what I hope to inspire in you is that this loneliness you’re experiencing can actually be a gift, because it creates an opportunity for you to get out of your comfort zone and start making new friends. And making friends is much of a science than an art. There is an art to it of course but if you follow the science, you won’t have a lack of meaningful relationships in your life.
Completing these next five social missions is the beginning of the next chapter for you, a chapter with an incredible social life and because of this, a more fulfilling experience in this world.
“Empathy allows us to make social connections, and the power of human relationships to both heal and harm.” — Bruce Perry
The best part is that one of the best ways to become happier and more fulfilled is to serve others. Although we may have neglected this area of opportunity while we were absorbed in games, there’s no better time to start being a leader in this aspect of life than now.
Over the course of the next five missions, we will experience what it feels like to contribute to something bigger than ourselves, and in doing so we will develop our skill of having empathy, leading to more connectedness and fulfillment.
“Often it is tenacity, not talent, that rules the day.”
― Julia Cameron, Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance
Tenacity is about the willingness to push through adversity. It’s about the persistence to keep going, even on days when you don’t want to. Tenacity is about determination, grit and perseverance. You have five missions to go, how bad do you want it?
