To be aware of a single shortcoming in oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.

All along the way

You don’t really win by causing others to lose. You win by doing something of value.

Your ability to truly win is independent of what other people do. Winning exists in the process more than the result.

Yes, you want the result to be positive and valuable. That’s how you determine the nature and extent of your effort.

Yet the winning does not come only in the reward. The winning comes also in everything you do to reach the reward.

You are living life in every moment, and you wouldn’t want the reward to only be at the end. For the reward to be maximized, it must be present throughout the whole process.

Choose the priorities and actions that enable you to win not just at the end of the undertaking, but all along the way. Every day, every moment, take the opportunity to truly win.

— Ralph Marston
