Becoming Ronin Podcast – #2 – The Ronin Game, Personal Accountability, Madness in Excellence

What does the student do when they feel discouraged? They go out and encourage others. This is the true intent of the Ronin game and giving of yourself to ease the suffering of others. Learn how personal accountability will completely change how you look at life. Specifically, when you don’t see your role in a situation, you can never see things from someone else’s perspective. OB reveals his “Decision Making Matrix,” that he uses to guide his life decisions. Finally, to achieve absolute greatness in your life, you must forego all else and jump into the abyss.
