Life's metagame reveals a simple strategy for success

What if life has a metagame, a game within a game, with rules that transcend the rules that everyone else plays by.

What if playing the metagame changed the structure of reality in your favor allowing you to break bad habits and keep your resolutions.

What if you already had everything you need to achieve your goals and fulfill your potential without needing any external help.

What temporary discomfort would you be willing to endure? Not because you want it or enjoy it but because it showed the way to success.


#metagame makes you anti-fragile.
Life creates the potential for meaning to exist inherently in all situations we face. Each moment, good and bad, provides an opportunity to gain insights and convert its potential into reality.

The struggles we experience in pursuit of goals provide opportunities to experience the range of emotions that makes life deep and engaging and from which we find meaning and fulfilment.

If your goal is to lose weight, it’s the moments when you’re tested by cravings and challenged by your internal critic that there is potential to find an insight into your suffering. These are “Critical Moments” when you face your moment of truth .

In these moments you always have a choice:
Rational choices, in spite of cravings, produce insights that transform you. While Expedient choices, because of cravings, sentence you to repeat the present.

A new perspective frees you from the natural resistance to change letting you can get on with achieving your goals and fulfilling your potential. Playing the #metagame makes you the opposite of fragile, a nti-fragile, where you become stronger the more that life throws at you. Compare this to our blind faith in “external” answers that have left us more vulnerable to life's inevitable shocks.​

Success is an outcome rather than the purpose

Your success comes through personal growth and transformation as you fulfill your potential, which may translate externally into material wealth. Goals are important but their purpose is to provide the motivation to test yourself against the challenges of life — continually making you stronger in the face of uncertainty.


Playing for material happiness is a zero sum game, because often when you win another person must lose. The metagame is different — playing the metagame is between you and life which adds value to all of humanity when you win.


Another brick in the wall.

Over time, your life’s meaning becomes the collection of each situation where potential meaning was actualised into reality. 


We create meaning from life by building a wall, brick by brick. Its structure depends on how optimistically you saw the potential inherent in every moment presented to you. When you succeed in actualising the potential of each moment you do so once and for all. When you miss the opportunity then the potential is lost forever.

It depends on how you choose.
