“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
As you survey your life, your relationships, and your business, remember the immortal words of Sun Tzu. Five thousand years ago he knew the true connection between self-awareness and success and five thousand years later his message is still the key to life and commerce.
Think about the above quote: as soon as a person knows herself, she will be able to conquer whatever obstacle that may come her way. Life is about self-reflection and self-awareness which equates to self-teaching. Moments of victory, success, mistakes and regrets may occur in a person’s daily life, but if they do not assess these questions of Why, When, How, What, Where and Who she may never be able to find out where it went right or wrong in the first place. In short, look within before you look without.
Better Optics + Better Options + Better decisions = Better Life
