Life is a Single Player Game [Limitless MD, Episode 21]


When it comes to success, you want to strive to be a better person than you were a week, a day, even a second ago. You don’t need to compare yourself with other people in your peer group, friendship circle, or on social media, and you don’t need to define success from outside of yourself. You are only in competition with one person in your life: yourself. So how do you become the highest version of yourself?

When you live in the game, you will feel happiness, fulfillment, intrinsic motivation, and drive. The bliss is internal, not external. Everything you need as you strive for greatness is inside of you, so this week, learn why you need to be your own hero, how to figure out what you’re looking for in life, and transition toward it. Discover why life is a single-player game, and why it’s not about winning or losing, but continually taking steps forward to become the best version of yourself.

“Strive in a way that is elegant, sophisticated, meaningful, and that brings you joy in the process.”

– Vikram Raya
