Player’s Handbook


Leaders who acknowledge mistakes, take personal responsibility and act swiftly to make corrections are generally regarded as heroic. Their willingness to open the door to new information – however uncomfortable that may be – gains credibility for themselves and their organizations.

Yet to become open and accessible, to overcome defensiveness in the moment when bad things are happening, is no small task. It takes a certain level of self-knowledge, empathy, and strength of character.

In a traditional roleplaying game, you create your character at the beginning of the game. In the roleplaying game called Life though, your character has already been created.

The primary difference between the two is that in the traditional roleplaying game, you fully understand and know yourself and the role you play within the game, before you begin playing it. Within the roleplaying game called Life though, you discover and understand the role you’re playing as you play the game.

Your role changes as you level up and begin to truly know yourself on a higher level.
